Best sportsbook promotions and odds boosts for Wednesday: NHL Playoffs and PGA Championship
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.
New York Rangers & Calgary Flames Both To Win – Boosted from +280 to +400 with FanDuel Sportsbook
For this parlay, we will need 2 NHL teams to win their games tonight. That being the New York Rangers against the Carolina Hurricanes and the Calgary Flames against the Edmonton Oilers. With this being Game 1 of the second round of the playoffs for both games, there is sure to be a lot of energy in the arena tonight. Our experts do like the Flames to take advantage of being at home and we like for them to beat an Oilers side that does not have the greatest defense. As for the Rangers, they are coming off an emotional series against the Penguins where they came back from 3 games to 1. Our experts like their momentum to be stopped here with a Hurricanes win. For that reason, this parlay looks best to stay away from.

Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth all to make the cut – Boosted from +160 to +190 (Starts 5/19) with PointsBet Sportsbook
The PGA Championship begins on Thursday morning and this prop will need Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and Jordan Spieth to all make the cut. This is Woods first time teeing it up since The Masters back in April. He made the cut in Augusta, so even with all his injuries, there is no way I can fade Woods making it to the weekend. As for Spieth, he has played 12 PGA events this season, making the cut in 9 of them. He has 1 win and 2 second place finishes. He did miss the cut at The Masters, so this will be a chance of redemption to make it to the weekend in the 2nd Major of the year.
Finally, for McIlory, he has played just 7 events this season, but has made the cut in 6 of them. He has finished in the top 20 in all the official events he has played, including a win at the CJ Cup last October and a 2nd place finish at The Masters. McIlory last played at the Wells Fargo Championship, a 5th place finish, so we should expect to see him in the weekend here as well. All three of these guys have far too much talent to not make the cut. Unless something goes horribly wrong, this is a prop worth backing.

Tigers Woods, Tony Finau, and Max Homa to all make the cut – Boosted from +215 to +250 (Starts 5/19) with PointsBet Sportsbook
Similar to the prop above, this prop will need Tiger Woods, Tony Finau, and Max Homa to all make the cut. As mentioned before, we like Woods to make the cut. As for Finau, he has played 14 official PGA events this season, making the cut in 10 of them. This includes a 2nd place finish at the Mexico Open at the beginning of May. Homa on the other hand, has played in 14 events as well, and has made the cut in 12 of them. His most recent start was a win at the Wells Fargo Championship. Finau and Homa has been consistent all season in terms of making it to the weekend. Since we already like Woods to make the cut, this prop also looks to be worth play.
