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

New York Knicks and New York Islanders to win (Boosted to +265), DraftKings Sportsbook

The New York Islanders are looking to eliminate the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight, while the New York Knicks will try to avoid a 0-2 situation against the Atlanta Hawks. We like the Islanders to get the job done mainly because of their defense. As for the Knicks, they still have plenty of talent and look to be able to even up this series.

Julius Randle and Trae Young to both score 25+ points (Boosted to +240), DraftKings Sportsbook

Due to late heroics, Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks took a 1-0 lead in New York. It is likely that Young is going to be in store for another huge game, but Julius Randle is going to be much better. He had 15 points in Game 1, but shot six of 23 from the field. There is likely no way that he shoots that poorly again, so regardless who wins, this odds boost looks to be a very good play.

Joel Embiid to score 30+ points and the 76ers to win (Boosted from +110), PointsBet Sportsbook

The Philadelphia 76ers started their postseason run strongly with a 125-118 win over the Washington Wizards in Game 1. Now they are looking to double up and we think they can do just that. The good thing about this odds boost is that the 76ers do not have to cover a number. They just have to win, while Joel Embiid needs to have another monster game. He did have 30 points in Game 1, and there is no reason to believe he will not be a bully in this game too. Therefore at plus-money, this play looks pretty good.

Marcus Rashford to score and Manchester United to win, (Boosted to +360), DraftKings Sportsbook

The Europa League Final kicks off soon and Marcus Rashford and Manchester United look poised to bring home a trophy. United have plenty of attacking strength, but Rashford in particular has been potent in front of goal this season. He has only two goals in the Europa League over six matches, but he is still likely to have plenty of chances, making this prop a decent play.

Fernando Tatis to hit a home run (Boosted to +400), PointsBet Sportsbook

The San Diego Padres will face off with the Milwaukee Brewers tonight and this odds boost will be focus on the individual performance from Fernando Tatis Jr. He has 13 home runs this season, only three off the lead in the MLB. He will be facing Eric Lauer, who has been pretty good, however, Tatis has two homers over his last three games, making this odds boost a decent look.
