Free NBA Western Conference Playoff Picks, Best Bets, and parlays for 4/26/22

After missing 6 out of the last 8 NBA games, we cashed on all 3 games last night. There are three more games tonight as the first round continues. Miami can close out the Hawks and we have two pivotal game 5’s in the Western Conference.

We hit our 2 Best Bets yesterday as the Celtics closed out the Nets and Dallas thrashed the Jazz. Our Best Bet of the Day record now stands at 86-41 in 2022.

We went 3-0 betting the MoneyLine and the overall record is now 456-228 since Jan.1st.

Toronto forced a game 6 and we hit the Upset Special for a very nice profit maker.

And finally, the parlay came in again and we turned a $10 Bet into a Payout of $61.16. That’s our 3rd parlay in the last 4 days.

Let’s take a look at the two Western Conference games for tonight and see what there is to bet. A repeat of last night would be great.

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET* Minnesota at Memphis (-6): The series is tied at 2-2: To be honest, this series has been a total surprise to me. When it began, I thought Memphis would have no trouble with the T-Wolves and had a chance to sweep them. Were it not for a complete collapse in game 3, Minnesota would have a 3-1 lead and would be looking to eliminate the Grizzlies tonight. The Wolves have been the better team through 4 games and Memphis seems to be playing tight. After blowing game 3, Minnesota came back and won a gritty game 4, to even up the series at 2-2. Will this be the game that Memphis gets their game back? I’m betting on the answer being yes. I like the Grizzlies at home in this one. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Memphis -6

*PAPA DUDES UPSET SPECIAL* New Orleans at Phoenix (-6.5): The series is tied at 2-2: I don’t think any of us thought that this series would be tied at 2-2 after the first four games. But Devin Booker got hurt in the 3rd quarter of game 2, the Pelicans have been awesome, and here we are in a pivotal game 5 tonight in Phoenix. New Orleans has ridden their two star players, Brandon Ingram and C.J. McCollum, along with their more physical game, and have taken it right at the Suns. And so far, Phoenix hasn’t found the answer. I expect more of the same tonight and it is very tempting to think that the Suns are going to come out and destroy the young Pelicans. But, I’ve seen no evidence that they are capable of doing that to this point. I think Phoenix will win, but I’m going with New Orleans to get this one down to the wire and beat the spread. PAPA DUDES UPSET PICK: New Orleans +6.5


We are betting the 2 upsets and 1 favorite today.

Leg 1: Atlanta at Miami (-7.5): Bet Miami -7.5

Leg 2: Minnesota at Memphis (-6): Bet Memphis -6

Leg 3: New Orleans at Phoenix (-6.5): Bet the Pelicans +6.5

Bet $10 for a Payout of $59.58
