We have put together a list of all of the day’s best odds boosts, which are from PointsBet Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook. We will discuss whether or not they are worth playing. Let’s dive in.

Either Team to Win by 15+ Points in ECF Game 5 – Boosted from +320 to +420 with FanDuel Sportsbook

This prop will need either the Boston Celtics or the Miami Heat to win Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals by at least 15 points. So far in this series, 3 of the 4 games have been decided by double-digit margins. In 2 of those games, the margins exceeded 15 points. Either the Heat looked awful the other night or the Celtics figured out something defensively because Boston stormed past Miami by 20 points. The injuries are mounting up for the Heat and this may be their last real chance to take control of the series. Even though this series is tied 2-2, one of these teams is likely going to make a statement tonight, therefore backing this prop is worth a play.

Nathan MacKinnon to record 2+ points and the Colorado Avalanche to win – Boosted from +185 to +205 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Nathan MacKinnon to record at least 2 points and the Colorado Avalanche to win Game 5 tonight against the St. Louis Blues in the Western Conference semifinals. The Avalanche have taken a commanding lead in this series, up 3 games to 1 after winning both games in St. Louis. MacKinnon failed to record a point in Game 4, the first time this postseason where he did not record a point. He does have 9 points in the playoffs though, but just 1 game with at least 2 points. Being back at home in Colorado should change that, especially with the Avs closing in on a series win. The crowd in Colorado will be fully behind the Avs tonight, so because our experts like the Avalanche to close our the series, backing this prop is worth a play.

Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to each score 25+ points and the Boston Celtics to win – Boosted from +320 to +375 with PointsBet Sportsbook

For this prop, we will need Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to each record at least 25+ points and the Boston Celtics will need to win Game 5 against the Miami Heat tonight in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Celtics look poised to take control of this series after a dominant Game 4 win. Tatum had 31 points in Game 4 and is now averaging 24.3 points per game in the series. The only game where he scored under 25 points was Game 3, where he scored 10 points in a loss. Brown is averaging 25 points in the series, exceeding 25 points in the first 3 games, while only scoring 12 in Game 4.

If the Celtics are going to win in Miami tonight, they will need both Brown and Tatum at their best. Our experts do like the Celtics to win tonight, therefore backing this prop is worth a shot.
