Free NBA Western Conference Playoff Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays for 4/21/22

There are three more first round games in the NBA playoffs on the schedule for Thursday. All 3 contests will take place in the Western Conference as the Eastern Conference takes a break tonight.

We cashed our Best Bet last night as the Celtics rallied and defeated the all flash and no smash Brooklyn Nets. That raised our Best Bet of the Day record to 81-37 in 2022.

We went 1-2 betting the MoneyLine barely missing the Raptors and Bucks games. Our overall record stands at 448-222 since Jan.1st.

Let’s check out the three games for tonight and see if we can get back on the winning track.

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET* Memphis (-2) at Minnesota: The series is tied at 1-1: Memphis got back on track in game 2 and kicked the T-Wolves around like most of us thought they would. Now, the series heads to Minnesota for a key game 3. If the Grizzlies can win this one, they should have solid footing for the rest of this first round matchup. In game 2, they held Minnesota to only 96 points and the T-Wolves aren’t going to win any games that are low-scoring. If Memphis can hold them down again tonight they should win. But, Minnesota is a dangerous offensive team and if they get to rolling, they are a nightmare for anyone. I think Memphis is the far superior team when they are focused and there is no reason they won’t be tonight. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Memphis -2

*PAPA DUDES UPSET SPECIAL* Dallas at Utah (-7) The series is tied at 1-1: I’m a little surprised at the line for this one. I understand that Luka Doncic, the Dallas superstar is questionable for this game, but the Mavericks beat Utah without him in game 2. I’m betting on him to play tonight, so I’m getting a bet in early in this one. I think Dallas is the better team, and their defense is underrated, as they have been able to hold the Utah offense down in the first two games. However, a Dallas victory won’t come easy. The Jazz are 29-12 in Salt Lake City and won’t go out quietly. This should be a great game. I think Utah might win, but fail to cover. PAPA DUDES UPSET PICK: Dallas +7

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET* Golden State (-2) at Denver. Golden State leads the series 2-0: It’s do or die time for the Nuggets in this one. They have barely shown a pulse in the first two games. The Warriors have been dominant and are in total command heading into Colorado for tonight’s game 3. They have been able to do whatever they want offensively and have shot the ball extremely well. Denver is going to have to bring a much better effort and a lot more intensity to have a chance to turn the tide. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Golden State -2


We are betting the 2 favorites and 1 underdog today.

Leg 1: Memphis (-2) at Minnesota: Bet Memphis -2

Leg 2: Golden State (-2) at Denver: Bet the Warriors -2

Leg 3: Dallas at Utah: Bet Dallas +7
