Free NBA Western Conference Playoffs Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays for 5/10/22

Another good night of betting the NBA is in the books as we saw Boston overtake the Bucks with a great 4th quarter to even that series at 2-2. And, in San Francisco, Golden State overcame a poor shooting night and beat a tenacious Memphis team 101-98 to take a 3-1 lead. The Grizzlies will return home for game 5 not knowing whether their star, Ja Marant will miss another game or not. Tonight, we have two pivotal Game 5’s and they both should be great games.

We cashed our Best Bet yesterday, after the Celtics scored 43 points in the 4th quarter to overcome Milwaukee. Our Best Bet of the Day record is now 94-47 in 2022.

We went 2-0 betting the MoneyLine and our overall record stands at 476-230 since Jan.1st.

Let’s look at the Dallas-Phoenix game tonight and see what we can bet..

Dallas at Phoenix (-6): The series is tied at 2-2: Like the Eastern Conference game tonight, these two teams have held serve at home, each winning two games. Both of them have shot the ball so much better in front of the home fans and have played with the confidence needed to win this series. Dallas got the usual good game from Luka Doncic (26 points and 11 rebounds), but he was only 9-25 from the field, including 1-10 from the 3-point line. But, in the two games in Texas, he has received the needed support from his teammates as Dorian Finney-Smith scored 24 points on 8-12 shooting from behind the arc, and Jalen Brunson chipped in with 18. The Mavericks are going to need that kind of production tonight. On the other hand, the Suns received a sub-par performance from Chris Paul who battled foul trouble and scored only 5 points in 23 minutes. He isn’t likely to have another game like that tonight. Despite the absence of their leader, Phoenix still had a chance to win the game because Devin Booker poured in 35 points to keep the Suns in the game, I’m leaning towards the Suns, but that 6-point spread is a worry. I’m going to go with Phoenix to win and keep my fingers crossed that they can cover. PAPA DUDES PICK: Phoenix -6
