Free NBA Western Conference Playoffs Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays for 5/11/22

I don’t think too many NBA fans thought we would see two blowouts last night, but that is exactly what happened. Miami and Phoenix looked like NBA Champion contenders with convincing wins at home. They both have a chance to make it to the Conference Finals if they can win on the road Thursday night. Of course, Philadelphia and Dallas will have something to say about that. Tonight, Golden State can eliminate the Grizzlies with a win in Memphis and Boston has a chance to go up 3-2 over Milwaukee in Boston. Should be a fun night of basketball.

We cashed our Best Bet yesterday, after the Heat demolished the 76ers 120-85. Our Best Bet of the Day continues to soar and we are now 95-47 in 2022.

We went 2-0 betting the MoneyLine and our overall record stands at 478-230 since Jan.1st.

And, we hit a small parlay last night turning a $10 Bet into a Payout of $50.74.

Let’s see if we can stay on this hot streak and analyze Game 5 of the Golden State-Memphis series.

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET OF THE DAY* Golden State (-4) at Memphis: Golden State leads the series 3-1: The Warriors come into Memphis tonight with a chance to wrap up this matchup, and advance to the Western Conference finals against either Phoenix or Dallas. The Grizzlies deserve a lot of credit for almost stealing Game 4 in San Francisco, without star player Ja Marant. They led most of the game, but couldn’t close the Warriors out because Marant wasn’t there down the stretch to hit the big shots needed, to close out a team like Golden State. And, he won’t play tonight as well. Golden State was able to win the game, despite making only 9 out of 37 three pointers, including a combined 4-24 from Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Jordan Poole. They are unlikely to shoot that bad again tonight. The Warriors smell blood and they are looking to end this one as soon as possible. But, there is optimism for Memphis tonight. They also suffered from a poor shooting performance in Game 4. They only shot 42% from the field and were 9-35 behind the arc. It can be expected that they will shoot much better in front of the home crowd tonight. I’m going with Golden State to close out the series, but not before the Grizzlies throw everything they have at them. I just don’t think they can finish off Golden State without Marant.
