There are now 4 days left in the regular season and still playoff positions to be settled. There are plenty of important games left.

We missed the Best Bet as Atlanta pulled away in the 2nd half and covered against the Wizards. It also lowered our Best Bet of the Day record to 66-33 since Jan. 1st.

We were an average 5-1 betting the MoneyLine, and our overall record now stands at 406-206 for 2022.

There are 7 games on the schedule for tonight and there will be some surprises for sure as these games continue to be very unpredictable. Let’s see if there is anything worthwhile to bet. Let’s get after it.

Papa Dudes Best Bets for the NBA Today

Philadelphia 49-30 at Toronto 46-33 (-1.5): This is a big game for both teams as far as playoff seeding goes. The 76ers are in a battle with Boston for 1st place in the Atlantic division, and are battling for the highest seed they can get. Boston is in Milwaukee tonight for a very difficult game against the defending champion Bucks. The Raptors are solidly in 5th and that is high as they can go, but the Bulls could still knock them down to 6th. I like the way Toronto is playing and they are at home. This will be a good one for sure. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Toronto -1.5

*PAPA DUDES UPSET SPECIAL* 55-24 at Denver 47-33 (-3): It is all about focus and motivation for the Grizzlies in this game tonight in Colorado. They are the tougher, better team, but they are locked in as a #2 seed and have little to play for. On the other hand, the Nuggets still need a win to safely escape the Play-In round. So, they have a lot more to gain or lose than Memphis does. Logic says take Denver, but I don’t like the way they play. I’m going with Memphis. PAPA DUDES UPSET PICK: Memphis +3

3-Team Parlay:

We are going with 3 upsets tonight.

Leg 1: Boston at Milwaukee (-6): Bet Boston +6

Leg 2: San Antonio at Minnesota: Bet the Spurs +8.5

Leg 3: Memphis at Denver (-3): Bet the MoneyLine on Memphis +175

Bet $10 for a Payout of $90.23
