Tonight and most nights throughout the NBA playoffs our partners at PointsBet will be providing users with wagers with boosted odds. There is no sharp action attached to these wagers.

These are just entertaining wagers to make your NBA watching experiences more enjoyable. Tonight's slate features a number of wagers with boosted odds. There is also another special odds boost for tonight action that can be found here. Below is a quick breakdown and a few thoughts on each wager. 



Jayson Tatum to Outscore Kevin Durant and the Celtics Win (+175 from +140)

Jayson Tatum hit the game winning shot to lift the Celtics to a Game One victory. Tatum finished the game with 31 points, leading all Boston scorers. With the Nets down one game, look for Durant to go off tonight in Boston. For those of you that play in the “ Pick N’ Roll” and Contest on the NBC Sports Predictor app you already know I like Durant to lead this game in scoring.


Giannis Antetokounmpo 30+ Points and Bucks Win (-120 from -140)

At first glance this looks like a wager that has a pretty realistic chance of hitting. If you do a deeper dive you see that in five games vs. the Bulls this season Giannis has scored 30 or more points twice so this is not a lock although it’s priced like a lock. Giannis averaged 26. 8 points vs. the Bulls this season. He scored 27 points in Game One. This could very well hit but at -120 it’s not worth the risk.

Tyrese Maxey to score 25 + Points and 76ers Win (+575 from +425)

In my opinion this is a wager worth backing tonight. Maybe it’s maybe, maybe I'm just that much of a Tyrese Maxey stan. Maxey went off for 38 points in Game One in Game Two he went for 23 points. This season vs. the Raptors Maxey averaged just under 20 points per game. At +575 odds this is a great sweat for tonight's games. May the Winners be ours.


Kyrie Irving 30+ Points and the Nets Win (+370 from +290)

This is another boosted odds prop wager for tonight that I don't mind taking a stab at. Irving was masterful in Game One of the series leading all scorers with 39 points. There is no love lost between the Celtics fan base and Irving. 30 points from Irving in a Nets victory at +370 is definitely a fair wager.


Kevin Durant, Joel Embiid and Giannis Antetokoumnpo to all score 30 + Points (+365 from +310)

This bad boy right here is PointsBet Hustle boost for tonight's slate. I gotta admit I am with it. All we need is for three of the best players in the NBA to put up 30+ points tonight. We sweat this one as a family.
