Free NBA Picks, Best, Bets and Parlays for 4/10/22

We head into the final day of the NBA season with still some playoff seeding to be settled. Today will be almost impossible to figure out and get right, especially in games involving teams with nothing to play for. Go easy on your betting for sure.

We cashed the Best Bet as Golden State won at San Antonio. That raised our Best Bet of the Day record to 69-33 since Jan. 1st.

We were an average 4-0 betting the MoneyLine, and our overall record now stands at 422-210 for 2022.

There are 15 games on the schedule for tonight and there will be some surprises for sure as these games continue to be very unpredictable. I won’t spend much at all for today.

Papa Dudes Best Bets for the NBA Today

Golden State 52-29 (-5) at New Orleans 34-46: The Warriors need this game to finish as the #3 seed in the West. New Orleans is already locked in as a 9 seed so this game means very little to them. I think this line is pretty low and I think the Warriors are the better team and have more to play for. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Golden State -5

*PAPA DUDES UPSET SPECIAL* Milwaukee 50-31 at Cleveland (-7.5): I must be missing something here. Milwaukee still needs a win to capture the #2 seed in the East so they should be motivated. Meanwhile, Cleveland has been a terrible team down the stretch. I just don’t buy into the idea that Milwaukee will rest players in this game. I’m going with the Bucks all day long. PAPA DUDES UPSET PICK: Milwaukee +7.5

3-Team Parlay:

We are going with 2 upsets and 1 favorite tonight.

Leg 1: Milwaukee at Cleveland (-7.5): Bet the MoneyLine on the Bucks +265

Leg 2: Miami (-12.5) at Orlando: Bet Miami +12.5

Leg 3: Golden State (-5) at New Orleans: Bet Golden State -5

Bet $10 for a Payout of $126.72
