Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Thursday: NBA Playoffs, MLB, and NHL Playoffs
There are plenty of sports going on today with the NBA Playoffs, NHL Playoffs and a big slate of MLB baseball games. There look to be a host of promotions and boosts on offer from sportsbooks. But which ones should you look to capitalize on?
We’ve put together a list of all of the day’s best boosts, which happen to be from DraftKings Sportsbook, William Hill Sportsbook, and FanDuel Sportsbook today, and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.
Houston Astros and Minnesota Twins both to win (Boosted to +150), FanDuel Sportsbook
Our experts love the Houston Astros tonight against the Detroit Tigers, a team that does not score many runs. As for the Minnesota Twins, we like them against a rookie pitcher for Cleveland. With both teams being huge favorites, this looks to be a play worth backing. Be sure to check out our full game previews for the Houston Astros vs. Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Indians vs. Minnesota Twins.
Devin Booker and Paul George over 30.5 points (Boosted to +275), William Hill Sportsbook
The Clippers find themselves down 0-2 for the third straight series and while we do not see them winning tonight, there is reason to believe both Devin Booker and Paul George are in store for big games. We all know how George missed some crucial free throws in Game 2, but he still ended with 26 points. He is now averaging 30 points in the series. As for Booker, he only had 20 points after a 40-point Game 1. With the return of Chris Paul, we expect Booker to be much more effective from the field. Plus, Kawhi Leonard is out again, so George will likely need at least 30+ if the Clippers are to have a chance. For that reason, this odds boost looks to be worth a play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Nicholas Suzuki over 1.5 points (Boosted to +350), William Hill Sportsbook
While we do not believe Montreal is going to win tonight, there is still every reason to believe that Nicholas Suzuki can record at least two points. He has five points over the last three games and just had three in Game 5. Our experts already like him to record one point, so at these odds, backing him to have at least two is worth a play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Nationals, Tigers, and Twins all to win (Boosted to +850), William Hill Sportsbook
A trio of wins will be needed for this odds boost and we are fairly confident in two of the three teams tonight. We like the Washington Nationals to take down Miami and the Minnesota Twins to beat Cleveland. However, our experts love Houston against a bad Detroit team who struggles to score, so this looks to be a play to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game previews for all of today’s MLB games.
Vegas Golden Knights to score last and to win (Boosted to +165), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Vegas Golden Knights have their backs to the wall in what will be a possible elimination game. They look to be switching goalies for this game, which should help their defense from allowing too many goals. Most of the games in this series have been close, and our experts like the Golden Knights to force a Game 7 tonight. In a possible one-goal game, Vegas could very well score an empty net goal, making this odds boost worth a small play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Devin Booker to record 50+ points + rebounds + assists (Boosted to +530), DraftKings Sportsbook
Devin Booker may have not had the greatest Game 2, scoring 20 points on just 5 of 16 from the field, but the likely return of Chris Paul should only help his production. Booker is not likely to shoot that poorly again, so we should still expect a big game. Still, asking him to combine for 50+ points, rebounds and assists may be too much to ask for, so this looks like an odds boost that is best to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
