Free NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays for 5/11/22

I don’t think too many NBA fans thought we would see two blowouts last night, but that is exactly what happened. Miami and Phoenix looked like NBA Champion contenders with convincing wins at home. They both have a chance to make it to the Conference Finals if they can win on the road Thursday night. Of course, Philadelphia and Dallas will have something to say about that. Tonight, Golden State can eliminate the Grizzlies with a win in Memphis and Boston has a chance to go up 3-2 over Milwaukee in Boston. Should be a fun night of basketball.

We cashed our Best Bet yesterday, after the Heat demolished the 76ers 120-85. Our Best Bet of the Day continues to soar and we are now 95-47 in 2022.

We went 2-0 betting the MoneyLine and our overall record stands at 478-230 since Jan.1st.

And, we hit a small parlay last night turning a $10 Bet into a Payout of $50.74.

Let’s see if we can stay on this hot streak and analyze Game 5 of the Milwaukee-Boston series.

Milwaukee at Boston (-5.5): The series is tied at 2-2: This has been a back and forth type of series with ebbs and flows in every game. The Celtics outscored Milwaukee 43-28 in the 4th quarter, to even up the series, and return to Boston with a ton of momentum on their side. They rode the shoulders of 35-year old Al Horford, who finished with a career best playoff high 30 points. Jayson Tatum also scored 30 points, and Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart each added 18. They will have a raucous Boston crowd behind them tonight in this pivotal Game 5. But, it won’t be easy and the defending NBA Champs from Milwaukee, aren’t going down without a fight. They have got to find some consistent scoring from someone else to support the heroic play of Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is averaging 32 points per game in the series. They are struggling from the 3-point line and the absence of Khris Middleton is beginning to become a problem. They will be hoping that Jrue Holiday can have a much better shooting game, as he was only 5-22 from the field on Monday. Neither team has been able to win 2 in a row in this series, and Boston is looking to do that tonight. I think the Celtics are going to win, but that 5.5-point spread is a little much. I’m going with Milwaukee and the points. PAPA DUDES PICK: Bucks +5.5


We are playing the 2 NBA games and a hockey game in this parlay.

Leg 2: Golden State (-4) at Memphis: Bet Golden State -4
