Free NBA Western Conference Playoff Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays for 5/26/22

The Boston Celtics went into Miami and handed the Heat a deflating 93-80 loss. They now return to Boston with a 3-2 lead and will have a golden opportunity to close out Miami and play for an NBA championship starting on June 2nd. Meanwhile, the Mavericks will try and pull off a major upset in San Francisco tonight and send the series back to Dallas for a game 6 as well. I doubt that Golden State is going to be a very hospitable host however.

We missed the Best Bet last night as we picked the Heat to beat the Celtics so our NBA slump continues. Our Best Bet of the Day record now stands at 101-56 in 2022.

We went 0-1 betting the MoneyLine and our overall record stands at 485-240 since Jan.1st.

Let’s look at what Vegas thinks about Game 5 in the Dallas-Golden State matchup for tonight.

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET OF THE DAY* Dallas at Golden State (-7): Golden State leads the series 3-1: Dallas showed a lot of heart Tuesday night, by warding off elimination with a 119-109 win in Game 4. Six players scored in double figures and they outscored the Warriors 71-46 in the middle two quarters. Luka Doncic had 30 points, 14 rebounds, and 9 assists to lead the Mavericks amd received plenty of support from his teammates. Dallas is going to need more of the same tonight in San Francisco if they are to stay alive. Golden State never could get their vaunted offense going and made only ten 3-pointers in a lackluster effort. They allowed the Mavericks to make twenty three pointers of their own, as Dallas outscored the Warriors 60-30 from behind the arc. This Golden State team has been able to bounce back from subpar efforts throughout the playoff run, and there is no reason to doubt them tonight. I look for a super effort from the Mavericks and I’m afraid of the spread being a bit too high. I think Golden State will win but fail to cover. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Dallas +7
