Free NBA Western Conference Playoffs Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays for 4/25/22

The first round of the playoffs continue to produce some surprises and injuries are beginning to become a problem for some of the teams. Tonight there are 3 games on tap with Boston and the Sixers looking to close out their series. In the West, Utah heads to Dallas for a pivotal game 5.

We split our 2 Best Bets yesterday as the Heat whipped up on the Hawks, but the Suns lost at New Orleans as the Pelicans continue to be a huge surprise so far. Our Best Bet of the Day record now stands at 84-41 in 2022.

We went 2-2 betting the MoneyLine and the overall record is now 453-228 since Jan.1st.

These games continue to be difficult to pick and there isn’t much I feel good about tonight. But, it is my job to pick out some winners so let’s get after it.

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET* Utah at Dallas (-3): The series is tied at 2-2: The Jazz and the Mavs meet up tonight in the pivotal game 5 of this series. Utah came from behind in the waning seconds to pull out a 100-99 victory, in game 4. They were able to win despite shooting only 40% from the field and hitting only 10 of 35 3-point attempts. The Jazz took it to the Mavs and shot 42 free throws and only turned the ball over 8 times. As so often happens, Dallas welcomed back superstar Luka Doncic to the lineup, and failed to win in his return. He did his part scoring 30 points with 10 rebounds, but the Mavs couldn’t finish out the Jazz. This has been a great series so far and this game tonight is shaping up as a classic. I firmly believe whoever wins tonight, will advance to the next round. I’ve liked Dallas all along, and I’m sticking with them in this one. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Dallas -3
