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

Last night was a perfect night of betting the NBA. All of our tickets cashed and that is a rare feat for sure. There are three more first round games in the NBA playoffs on the schedule for Friday; 2 games in the Eastern Conference and Phoenix-New Orleans in the West.

We cashed both of our Best Bets yesterday as Memphis and Golden State covered small spreads. That raised our Best Bet of the Day record to 82-37 in 2022.

We made some money on Dallas as they went into Utah, without Luka Doncic, and impressively upset the Jazz. That made our small wager come through with a nice profit as we hit the Upset Special.

We went a perfect 3-0 betting the MoneyLine raising the overall record to 450-220 since Jan.1st.

And finally, we hit the parlay turning a $10 wager into a Payout of $61.36.

Let’s check out the three Phoenix-New Orleans game for tonight, and try not to get overconfident in our betting for tonight.

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET* Phoenix (-1.5) at New Orleans: The series is tied at 1-1: The Suns have been unimpressive in the first two games and now will head to New Orleans minus their best player. Devin Booker has a Grade 1 hamstring strain and could miss 2-3 weeks and that further complicates their situation. Meanwhile, New Orleans is showing plenty of fight and moxie, and they are not going down without a fight. This is a pivotal game 3 and a Pelicans’ win could put Phoenix is some significant trouble. I’m hanging with the Suns because they didn’t win 64 games without a reason. They will be focused and ready for this one. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Phoenix -1.5


We are betting the 2 favorites and 1 underdog today.

Leg 1: Miami (-1.5) at Atlanta: Bet Miami -1.5

Leg 2: Milwaukee (-2.5 at Chicago: Bet the MoneyLine on Chicago +125

Leg 3: Phoenix (-2) at New Orleans: Bet Phoenix -2

Bet $10 for a Payout of 68.64
