Free NBA Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays for 4/6/22

With a full schedule of games last night, it was bound to be a wild night and it did have some crazy results. But, with teams jockeying for playoff position, it is bound to happen.

We cashed another Best Bet as Toronto stayed hot and knocked off the Hawks 118-108. That win for the Raptors combined with a Chicago loss moved Toronto into the 5th spot in the Eastern conference playoffs. It also improved our Best Bet of the Day record to 66-32 since Jan. 1st.

We were an average 8-4 betting the MoneyLine, and our overall record now stands at 401-205 for 2022.

There are 6 games on the schedule for tonight and there are some very important contests. Let’s get after it.

Papa Dudes Best Bets for the NBA Today

Washington 35-44 at Atlanta 41-38 (-11): Both teams are coming off of games last night. The Wizards beat the T-Wolves and are playing solid basketball down the stretch. Meanwhile, the Hawks lost a hard-fought game to the Raptors in Toronto. This is a much bigger game for Atlanta as they are battling for a home game in the Play-In round of the playoffs. I think they are going to win, but the Wizards are in good form and 11 points is a bunch to cover. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Washington + 11

*PAPA DUDES UPSET SPECIAL* Oklahoma City 24-55 at Utah 47-32 (-17): The Thunder have been showing a lot of spunk in the final days of the regular season and have managed to win a couple of games. They come into Utah and take on the Jazz, who are coming off a big overtime win over Memphis last night. It is not a stretch to see a letdown for Utah in this one. I see no way they lose this game, but 17 points is a very big margin to cover, on the 2nd game of a back-to-back. PAPA DUDES UPSET PICK: Oklahoma City +17

3-Team Parlay:
