- The Golden Knights are -135 betting favorites to close out the series against the Colorado Avalanche.
- The Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros both have -110 odds to win on Thursday.
LAS VEGAS – Thursday should be an eventful day in the world of sports with so many events going on.
However, in this Daily Sports Betting Preview, we’ll focus on the NHL Playoffs, the MLB and the Palmetto Open.
The Vegas Golden Knights took a 3-2 series lead with an overtime win in Game 5 and will now return to their home ice in hopes to eliminate the Avalanche from the playoffs and move on to the next round. Online sportsbooks suggest the series ends tonight.
Golden Knights vs Avalanche Moneyline Odds
- Vegas Golden Knights -135
- Colorado Avalanche +115
Vegas has now won three straight games in this series and has taken all of the momentum away from Colorado. The Avalanche also have been unable to win on the road this series.
There’s a lot of factors siding with the Golden Knights in this one and considering the hockey betting odds, should be worth betting on.
MLB Odds: Boston Red Sox vs Houston Astros
The Boston Red Sox will look to avoid being swept by the Houston Astros on Thursday night. Houston has taken the first two games of the series by scores of 7-1 and 8-3. Despite the poor play from Boston, the teams are listed as a pick ‘em on sports betting sites.
Red Sox vs Astros Moneyline Odds
- Boston Red Sox -110
- Houston Astros -110
Now, the Red Sox will have to face Zack Greinke (6-2, 3.38 ERA, 1.09 WHIP) who is arguably the toughest pitcher they will have faced this series. The Astros should have shorter odds than what they do and MLB betting followers should take advantage.
PGA Tour Odds: 3-Ball Bets For First Round
The Palmetto Championship started early this morning, but groups will continue hitting the first tee box throughout the afternoon. The best value in golf bets often comes from 3-Ball bets and that’s exactly what is presented.
First Round 3-Ball Betting Odds
- Brooks Koepka EVEN
- Keith Mitchell +225
- Lucas Glover +250
It seems scary to go with a guy like Keith Mitchell over the elite talent of Brooks Koepka, but the value is there to justify the bet. Koepka came in second at the PGA Championship a couple of weeks ago, but that’s the only cut he’s made since the end of February.
Also, this is likely just a tune-up for Koepka as he prepares for next week’s US Open and could try a few new things that cost him some strokes.
There’s no question who the best golfer in this grouping is, but there is the chance that Keith Mitchell is the best on a random Thursday in the middle of June, and that’s all this bet needs. Given the golf odds, it’s worth a shot.
