His goal is to consistently give out winners and will put in the research to try and achieve this.

The MLB dominates today’s sports action before NBA Finals Game 6 tonight, and there are still plenty of promotions and odds boosts on offer that you can look to take advantage of.

We have put together a list of all of the day’s best boosts, which happen to be from DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook and PointsBet Sportsbook today, and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

4+ home runs hit in Mariners vs. Rockies – Boosted to +180 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Being in Colorado tends to mean we should expect plenty of runs. Our experts do like the under tonight, however 4+ home runs is not out of the question by any means. The Rockies actually play some great baseball at home and while German Marquez has been solid in Colorado this season, allowing a solo home run or two is still very possible. On the other side, Seattle will start Marco Gonzales, who has been inconsistent this season. Therefore, backing there to be at least four home runs looks to be a worthwhile play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Bryce Harper to record an RBI and the Phillies to win – Boosted to +250 with DraftKings Sportsbook

The Phillies return to the diamond today after an off-day to face the New York Yankees. Aaron Nola will be on mound for the Phillies, but here we are going to be focused on Bryce Harper. Domingo German will be the pitcher for the Yankees and his 4.72 ERA looks to be an area Harper could exploit. Even though Harper has not recorded an RBI in the last four games, tonight looks to be a great opportunity with this game being played in Yankee Stadium. Our experts like the Phillies to win this game too, so I would look to play this odds boost, but only as a small play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Chris Paul to record a double-double and the Suns to win –Boosted to +425 with DraftKings Sportsbook

Chris Paul has been very solid in the NBA Finals, but is not racking up the double-doubles like we might have thought. He finally recorded his first double-double of the series in Game 5, which ultimately lead to another Suns loss. Being an elimination game, there is still a good chance that Paul has a big game, however, our experts believe the Bucks are too good right now for the Suns to force a Game 7. For that reason, this looks to be an odds boost to avoid. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Bet $1, win $150 on either the Bucks or the Suns to win Game 6 in the NBA Finals, DraftKings Sportsbook

DraftKings is offering a very generous odds boost for the NBA Finals and one that you should consider taking advantage of. At the price of $1 and with how they have looked the past three game, the Bucks look like a great choice to end this series. We already lean their way to cover, so a win looks likely for the Bucks. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Giannis Antetokounmpo to score 30+ points and the Bucks to win – Boosted to +160 with PointsBet Sportsbook

After the Bucks went 2-0 down in the series, they looked dead in the water. However, since Game 1 even, Giannis Antetokounmpo has been on fire. He is averaging 32.2 points per game in the series, and 33.5 points per home game. Our experts like the Bucks to win and cover, so backing this odds boost looks to be a worthy play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Devin Booker to score 30+ points and make 3+ threes – Boosted to +220 with FanDuel Sportsbook

Luckily this odds boost only requires Devin Booker to score points, while also making some threes. We do like the Bucks to win the game, but if the Suns want any chance to force a Game 7, Booker is going to need to be at his best. In this series, he is averaging exactly 30.0 points per game, but has gone over the 30-point mark in three of the five games. His three-point shooting has not been great, shooting 11 of 35 from downtown in the series (31.4 percent). He has made 3+ threes in just one of the five games, but with this being an elimination game, I do think he is going to step up big time. For that reason, this looks like a play worth a small shot. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

Milwaukee Bucks to cover -4.5 and Giannis Antetokounmpo to score over 32.5 points – Boosted to +250 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This very well could be the last game of the NBA Finals as the Milwaukee Bucks have narrowed in on the title. Giannis Antetokounmpo has been an absolute beast in this series, averaging 32.2 points per game in the series, which is essentially right on this number. The Bucks know the Suns are going to come out strong, so expect Antetokounmpo to step up his intensity even more. Our experts lean towards the Bucks to cover the spread in this game, backing that as well as a big game from Antetokounmpo is well worth a play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.

FanDuel is also offering a massive odds boost for Game 6 of the NBA Finals tonight. We have been going to the Suns time and time again, but the Bucks look ready to seal the title. At 30/1, we like the Bucks to win their fourth game in a row and to bring home the trophy. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
