Free NBA Eastern Conference Playoff Picks, Best Bets and Parlays for 4/22/22

Last night was a perfect night of betting the NBA. All of our tickets cashed and that is a rare feat for sure. There are three more first round games in the NBA playoffs on the schedule for Friday; 2 games in the Eastern Conference and Phoenix-New Orleans in the West.

We cashed both of our Best Bets yesterday as Memphis and Golden State covered small spreads. That raised our Best Bet of the Day record to 82-37 in 2022.

We made some money on Dallas as they went into Utah, without Luka Doncic, and impressively upset the Jazz. That made our small wager come through with a nice profit as we hit the Upset Special.

We went a perfect 3-0 betting the MoneyLine raising the overall record to 450-220 since Jan.1st.

And finally, we hit the parlay turning a $10 wager into a Payout of $61.36.

Let’s check out the three games for tonight, and try not to get overconfident in our betting for tonight.

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET* MIami (-1.5) at Atlanta: Miami leads the series 2-0: This series moves to Atlanta after the Heat took care of business and won the first two games in Miami. Atlanta made a run at them in game 2 and that should give them some confidence coming into this game. Miami has been able to control Trae Young, forcing his teammates to step up and beat them. Their defense has been the difference in this matchup and that should continue tonight. The Hawks are a good team at home and it is very tempting to pick them to win in a must game for them. But that line is just too small for me to pick against the Heat. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Atlanta -1.5

*PAPA DUDES UPSET SPECIAL* Milwaukee (-2.5) at Chicago The series is tied at 1-1: The Bucks could easily be down 2-0 in this series as they have been unimpressive in the first two games. The Bulls were terrible down the stretch of the regular season but have returned to their mid-season form and have been the better team. This is the pivotal game 3 and Chicago can really put the defending champs in a tough spot with a win. I’m going to throw a couple of bucks on the Bulls because of the injury to Bucks starting forward Khris Middleton. Without him in the lineup, I think Chicago prevails in this one. PAPA DUDES UPSET PICK: Bulls


We are betting the 2 favorites and 1 underdog today.

Leg 1: Miami (-1.5) at Atlanta: Bet Miami -1.5

Leg 2: Milwaukee (-2.5 at Chicago: Bet the MoneyLine on Chicago +125

Leg 3: Phoenix (-2) at New Orleans: Bet Phoenix -2

Bet $10 for a Payout of 68.64
