Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Wednesday, June 2 for the MLB, NBA playoffs and NHL playoffs
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, PointsBet Sportsbook and William Hill Sportsbook today and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.
Jose Altuve to record over 1.5 hits and Astros to win (Boosted to +440), DraftKings Sportsbook
Houston’s Jose Altuve has been extremely solid this season, hitting .308. He will face the Boston Red Sox tonight and Nick Pivetta will be on the mound. Pivetta’s numbers are not bad, but they also are not as good as they look. Altuve is three for five in the series with the Red Sox so far and has two home runs. The reason why he does not have more hits is because Boston continues to walk him. Still, Altuve is seeing the ball plenty well and should be able to have success against Pivetta. Especially at this price, backing him to record two hits seems like a decent play.
Nathan MacKinnon to score a goal and the Avalanche to win (Boosted to +185), PointsBet Sportsbook
Nathan MacKinnon has really upped his game in the postseason and has now scored five goals in five games. He had two goals in Game 1, so there is a good chance he finds the back of the net tonight as well. The only difference is that our experts like Vegas to tie up this series. They only lean that way, though, making this a play a possible hedging opportunity because a Colorado win likely means MacKinnon will have scored.
Kawhi Leonard to outscore Luka Doncic (Boosted to -110), PointsBet Sportsbook
These two superstars, Kawhi Leonard and Luka Doncic, have both been great in this series. However, in what looks to be a must-win Game 5, we like the Clippers to pull away and win comfortably. That likely means Leonard is going to have to take over at some point during the game. He has outscored Doncic in two of the four games and has looked better recently. For that reason, this might be worth a small play, even at the standard odds of -110.
Trae Young to score 25+ points and the Hawks to win (Boosted to +230), PointsBet Sportsbook
The Hawks are one game away from eliminating the Knicks and as the series heads back to New York, we are expecting Trae Young to have a huge game. Young is averaging 27.5 points per game in the series. Actually, in the two road games, Young is averaging 31 points per game compared to 24 points per game at home. Atlanta is going to lean on Young big time in this closeout game, making this play worth a shot.
Kawhi Leonard and Luka Doncic Over 70.5 Combined Points (Boosted to +270), William Hill Sportsbook
Kawhi Leonard and Luka Doncic have been the stars in the Clippers vs. Mavericks series and another big game for both guys seems to be on the cards tonight. Leonard is averaging 33 points per game, while Doncic is averaging 33.25 points per game. They have gone over this combined total twice in the series and we believe it will happen tonight too. Especially because Doncic will be poised for a bounce-back game after scoring only 19 points in Game 4. Plus, Leonard is one of the Clippers main weapons, so backing this odds boost seems to be a decent play.
Donovan Mitchell and Ja Morant each to score over 30.5 points (Boosted to +700), William Hill Sportsbook
If the Grizzlies want any chance of getting back into this series, they will need Ja Morant to go off (again). Morant is averaging 31 points per game this series and should be able to have his way again with this Jazz defense. On the other side, Donovan Mitchell is averaging 28 points per game, but has played in only three games. He is capable of going off any night and will need a big game if the Jazz are going to advance. It will take a lot for this odds boost to cashed, but at these odds, it is worth a shot.
Grizzlies and Clippers both to Win (Boosted to +650), William Hill Sportsbook
Though the odds are nice and big, this play is hard to get behind because we do not see the Grizzlies hanging around in Game 5. They are down 3-1 in the series and while they might put up a fight for three quarters or so, the Jazz appear to be much too strong. As for the Clippers, they seem to have got their act together after the first two games and our experts believe Game 5 is where the Clippers will take over. Though because of our thoughts on the Jazz game, this odds boost might not be worth a play.
