Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Tuesday, May 25, for the MLB, NBA playoffs and Phil Mickelson's resurgence
There are plenty of sports going on tonight with the NHL playoffs, NBA playoffs and a decent-sized baseball slate. 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 William Hill Sportsbook today and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.
Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving Over 70.5 Points, (Boosted to +550), William Hill Sportsbook
After a slow start in Game 1, the Nets ended up pulling away in what was a comfortable win. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving combined for 61 points in that game, and that was with them shooting a combined 3 for 16 from downtown. The Nets already look to be too much for the Celtics and another big night for both guys is expected. Look for them to be more efficient from deep range and find a way over this total.
Devin Booker, Anthony Davis and LeBron James Over 90.5 Points, (Boosted to +300), William Hill Sportsbook
The Lakers find themselves down 0-1 in the series after a not so great performance from Anthony Davis. LeBron James played well, but he is going to need to be scoring more than 18 points per game if the Lakers are going to defend their title. Look for both of these guys to bounce back big time and I would not be surprised to see them both reach 30+ points in what might be a must win Game 2. The other part of this boost involves the Suns’ best player, Devin Booker. He dropped 34 points in Game 1 and there is no reason to believe the same will not happen again. Because James and Davis should be better here, this looks like an odds boost worth taking advantage of.
Luka Donic, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George Over 100.5 Points, (Boosted to +400), William Hill Sportsbook
Luka Donic put the Los Angeles Clippers on early notice as he scored 31 in a 10-point Game 1 win. Doncic was efficient with the ball, shooting 11 for 24 and 5 for 11 from downtown. He might actually have to more in Game 2 because we know the Clippers will be itching to bounce back. Kawhi Leonard had 26 points on 9 of 22 shooting and Paul George had 23 points on 8 of 18 shooting. Not the worst percentages there, but they certainly need to try an improve to avoid an 0-2. There is also the fact that Leonard and George combined for 3 of 14 from three-point range, a mark we expect to be significantly better tonight. If Doncic does his thing as usual and Leonard and George improve their outside shooting, this number will be obtainable and worth a play at these odds.
Nets, Lakers and Clippers all to win, (Boosted to +250), DraftKings Sportsbook
We already love the Clippers to bounce back strong tonight and are also backing the Nets and Lakers. With this odds boost, all these teams just have to win. Because the Clippers cannot afford to go down 0-2 in the series, this may be a play worth backing tonight.

Nets, Lakers and Mavs all to win, (Boosted to +700 ), William Hill Sportsbook
This is going to be more of a hedging opportunity if you believe the Lakers and Nets are a lock to win. We actually have predicted a Clippers win and cover, but if you believe Luka Doncic can take over this game, it might be a decent bet at some juicy odds.

Cleveland Browns to win the Super Bowl, (Boosted to +2000 William Hill Sportsbook
The Browns took the next step by making the playoffs in 2020, but with their team continuing to become more experience, backing them as longshot to win the Super Bowl might not sound too crazy at the odds offered on William Hill.
Phil Mickelson to win the US Open (Boosted to +6000), William Hill Sportsbook
Phil Mickelson became the oldest Major winner in the PGA last week, winning at +20000 odds. For those who think he still has it, can take advantage of more massive odds at William Hill.
Rays to Win vs Royals (Boosted to -159), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Rays enter this game having won 11 in a row, and they’ve scored at least six runs in eight of their last nine games. Their offense has been outstanding as of late, so backing the rays to stay hot at better odds may be worth a look.
