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

Kawhi Leonard and Donovan Mitchell to each score over 30.5 points (Boosted to +475), William Hill Sportsbook

Kawhi Leonard pretty much carried the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round against Dallas and there is no reason to believe he will not do the same against the Utah Jazz. He averaged 32.1 points per game over a long seven game series and will likely do the same tonight. Donovan Mitchell on the other hand, averaged 28.5 points against the Memphis Grizzlies and that was in only four games. Against the Clippers, he will likely have to switch gears, making this odds boost a decent play at the listed odds. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Paul George over 40.5 points + rebounds + assists (Boosted to +175), William Hill Sportsbook

Paul George is another player for the Los Angeles Clippers that could go off on any night. He averaged 23.5 points against the Mavericks, but will likely need to do more than that to help steal Game 1 on the road. He also averaged 9.0 rebounds in the first-round and 5.7 assists. George nearly went over this mark in five of the seven games against Dallas, so at given price, this boost looks to be worth a play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Trae Young to record 50+ points + rebounds + assists (Boosted to +460, DraftKings Sportsbook

The Atlanta Hawks won Game 1 in Philadelphia, and once again it was Trae Young who the Sixers could not seem to slow down. He posted 35 points, two rebounds and ten assists in this game and will be looking for even more tonight. Atlanta’s defense ended up struggling down the stretch, so Young will need to make sure he does everything he can to try to steal Game 2. Young is capable of posting 40-plus points, making this odds boost a decent play at these odds. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Utah Jazz to lead at half-time and win the game (Boosted to +125), DraftKings Sportsbook

The Utah Jazz have had plenty of rest and preparation for this series, seeing that they beat Memphis in five games. We expect them to come out of the gates strongly to set the tone for this series. This could very well be a Jazz win from the start, so getting them to lead at half-time and win the game at plus-money looks like a decent play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Tyler Glasnow to record 8+ strikeouts (Boosted to +100), PointsBet Sportsbook

One of the best pitchers in the MLB will take the mound tonight in Tyler Glasnow. He is a strikeout machine and has 106 Ks on the season in 77.0 innings pitched. His K/9 is 12.4, one of the top marks in the league. While the Washington Nationals do not strike out a ton, Glasnow still could reach this number if he goes deep into the game. For that reason, this odds boost looks to be a decent play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Kawhi Leonard to score 25+ points and the Clippers to win (Boosted to +270), PointsBet Sportsbook

The Clippers will head to Utah for Game 1 of their series with the Jazz tonight. Coming off a Game 7, the Clippers could be a little sluggish, which is why we like the Jazz to win and cover. Kawhi Leonard will likely reach the 30-point mark, however the Jazz have been too good at home, therefore this is another odds boost to probably avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Joel Embiid to score 30+ points and the 76ers to win (Boosted to +150), PointsBet Sportsbook

The Sixers are 1-0 down in the series, but Joel Embiid looked plenty heathy in Game 1. He was well enough to drop 39 points on the Hawks and we believe he should be able to reach this mark tonight as well. We also like the Sixers to bounce back with a win and cover, so this odds boost looks to be worth a play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Brandon Saad to score a goal and the Avalanche to win (Boosted to +380), PointsBet Sportsbook

There is no question that the Colorado Avalanche have lost some momentum after losing their 2-0 lead in the series, which is now tied at 2-2. However, they will look to rebound when they play the Vegas Golden Knights at home tonight. The player in question for this odds boost is Brandon Saad. He has two goals in the series, most recently scoring the only goal for the Avs in Game 4. The Golden Knights’ defense is starting to play much better and our experts actually like them on the road tonight. For that reason, this may be an odds boost to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
