Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Wednesday: NBA Playoffs, Stanley Cup Final, and MLB
There are plenty of sports going on today with the NBA Playoffs, Stanley Cup Finals, 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 all from DraftKings Sportsbook today, and whether they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.
Devin Booker to score 30+ points and the Suns to win (Boosted to +330), DraftKings Sportsbook
Ever since Game 1, when Devin Booker went for 40 points, he has not been the same. Maybe it was the broken nose in Game 2, but he has only scored more than 30 points once since then. He is averaging 26.2 points per game in the series as a whole, but only 20 points per game on the road in two games. We do like the Suns to close out the series, but Booker has not shown us enough in this series to believe he will surpass 30 points. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Terrance Mann to record 2+ made threes (Boosted to +250), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Los Angeles Clippers managed to avoid elimination in Game 5 and will look to do the same at home in Game 6. Ivan Zubac and Kawhi Leonard are still sidelined, so the Clippers will likely need Paul George to continue to step. Not only George, but Terrance Mann is another guy who could look to make a difference. He is 5 for 11 on three in this series, but has only managed to make at least two in one game. Even still, his minutes are likely going to increase for tonight, so this still looks to be an odds boost worth a play. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Canadiens vs. Lightning – either team to win by exactly one goal (OT included) (Boosted to +160), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Tampa Bay Lightning crushed Montreal 5-1 in Game 1 and it is shaping up to be another convincing win. The Lightning’s powerplay has been too strong, so we do not believe the Canadiens will be able to keep this game close. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
Brendan Gallagher to record a point and the Canadiens to win (Boosted to +450), DraftKings Sportsbook
The Montreal Canadiens looked flat in Game 1 and will attempt to bounce back in Game 2 to even the series. Our experts are confident in a Tampa Bay win though due to how good their powerplay has been, and because of the edge we believe they have in net. Brendan Gallagher failed to record a point in Game 1, so this looks to be an odds boost to stay away from. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
White Sox, Blue Jays, and Astros all to win (Boosted to +275), DraftKings Sportsbook
We actually really like this parlay being offered tonight because all three teams have winnable games. The White Sox are playing the Twins, who have a rookie on the mound, the Blue Jays are playing the Mariners and the Astros are playing the Orioles. We actually like the Astros and the Blue Jays to win comfortably on the run line, so this odds boost definitely looks to be worth a play. Be sure to check out our picks on the side and total for all of tonight’s MLB matchups.
Shohei Ohtani to record 5+ strikeouts and hit a home run (Boosted to +330), DraftKings Sportsbook
There is every reason to believe Shohei Ohtani is the frontrunner for AL MVP right now with what he has been doing at the plate and on the mound. He will be starting this game on the mound and comes into the game with an ERA of 2.59. Ohtani strikes out batters 33.1 percent of the time, so he should be able to have success against a strikeout heavy Yankees lineup. He is also expected to be the DH, and with a two home run game on Tuesday, there is reason to believe he can cash this odds boost. Be sure to check out our full game preview for this matchup.
