There are plenty of sports going on today with the NHL playoffs, NBA playoffs and plenty of baseball games. There look to be plenty 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 and PointsBet Sportsbook today and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Shane Bieber and Tyler Glasnow to record over 18.5 Ks (Boosted to +160), DraftKings Sportsbook

Shane Bieber and Tyler Glasnow are known for their strikeouts, making this odds boost worth a look right away. Beiber has 110 strikeouts over 72.0 innings this season, giving him a K/9 of 13.8. Glasnow has 98 strikeouts over 70.0 innings and his K/9 is 12.6. Both teams these pitchers are facing strike out plenty, making this odds boost worth a small play.

Fernando Tatis Jr or Adolis Garcia or Garrett Cooper to hit a home run (Boosted to +115), DraftKings Sportsbook

We have three young stars playing tonight and all of them will have nice opportunities to hit a home run. Especially Adolis Garcia, who will be playing at altitude in Colorado. Fernando Tatis Jr will face a shaky Kyle Hendricks and Garrett Cooper will matchup with Robbie Ray. The odds are not anything crazy, but with the amount of power all three of these guys have, it may be worth a shot backing this boost.

Brayden Point to score a goal and the Lightning to win (Boosted to +350), PointsBet Sportsbook

The Lightning have raced out to a 1-0 series lead against the Hurricanes and frankly, we believe they will be able to go up 2-0 in the series. Tampa Bay has too much depth right now and Carolina have not looked like they can keep up. For this odds boost, we will be needing Brayden Point to score a goal. He already has one goal in this series and had four in the opening series. Point has been one of the Lightning’s go-to guys this postseason, making this odds boost worth a play.

Kevin Durant to score 35+ points and the Nets to win (Boosted to +210), PointsBet Sportsbook

The Nets are headed back to Brooklyn with a 3-1 lead in the series and the Big 3 for the Nets have pretty much been doing it all. Kevin Durant in particular is averaging 34.8 points per game in the series and has eclipsed 35 points in the last two games. We believe that Boston can cover this game given the double-digit spread, however the Nets should win this home game, making this an odds boost worth playing.

LeBron James to score 25+ points and the Lakers to win (Boosted to +310), PointsBet Sportsbook

Tonight the Lakers are more than likely going to be without Anthony Davis which represents a huge issue. I would be confident that LeBron James can score 25+ points because without Davis, the Lakers’ scoring options are somewhat limited. The bigger concern is how are they going to win this game? We know Davis missed a lot of time in the regular season and LA no doubt struggled. Plus, with a healthy Chris Paul back, it just gives Phoenix another layer of potential. For that reason, this might be an odds boost to stay away from because the Lakers look to be in trouble without one of their stars.

Nikola Jokic to score 30+ points and the Nuggets to win (Boosted to +185), PointsBet Sportsbook

I am not sure what happened to the Nuggets in Game 4 as they were basically run out of the building. Going back to Denver, however, should give them the confidence they need to bounce back in a big way. A Denver win starts with the effectiveness of Nikola Jokic, and our experts believe he is going to have a big night. Despite scoring just 16 points in Game 4, Jokic is still averaging 31 points per game in the series. The fact that he will be back in Denver makes us believe this odds boost is worth a play.
