We have put together a list of all of the day’s best odds boosts, which are from FanDuel Sportsbook. We will discuss whether or not they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

New York Rangers & Calgary Flames both to win – Boosted from +280 to +350 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this parlay, we will need 2 NHL teams to win their games tonight: the New York Rangers against the Carolina Hurricanes and the Calgary Flames against the Edmonton Oilers. The Flames have their back to the wall after losing 3 games in a row to trail 3-1 in the series. The Oilers attackers are doing their job right now and are tormenting this Flames’ defense. However, with this being an elimination game, our experts like this game to trend more towards how Game 1 went. A lot of goals scored with the Flames coming out on top, this time to extend the series.

The Rangers did well to win both of their home games to even this series at 2-2, but now face the uphill battle of winning a game in Carolina. The Hurricanes are 6-0 at home in the postseason, while they are 0-5 on the road. Our experts like that trend to continue tonight and like Canes to reestablish a lead in this series on their home ice. Because Carolina have been so dominant at home, this parlay is likely one to avoid.

Be sure to check out all of our NHL picks for today’s action.

Stephen Curry and Luka Doncic to make 8+ combined threes – Boosted from -110 to +130 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop needs Stephen Curry and Luka Doncic to make a combined 8 three-pointers tonight in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. Curry is averaging 4.0 made threes per game in the seriesand being at home tonight should see Curry firing from deep often. Doncic, on the other hand, is averaging 3.8 made threes per game in the series. The Mavericks know they must outshoot the Warriors if they are going to extend this series another game, so expect Doncic to also take plenty of shots from long range. With both guys having well established themselves from behind the arc already this series, backing this prop looks to be worth a small play.

Klay Thompson, Jalen Brunson, and Andrew Wiggins to each score 15+ points – Boosted from -110 to +130 with FanDuel Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Klay Thompson, Jalen Brunson and Andrew Wiggins to each score at least 15 points in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. Thompson is averaging 15.3 points per game in the series, Brunson is averaging 20.0, and Wiggins is averaging 18.8. Both the Warriors and the Mavericks will need their role players to step up if they are going to win, therefore backing this prop looks to be worth a play.
