Free NBA Western Conference Playoffs Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays for 5/15/22

After a night off, we have a couple of exciting series ending Game 7’s today. On Friday, Boston stayed alive with a great win in Milwaukee leading to a deciding game today in Boston. And in the West, Dallas will head to Phoenix with a ton of momentum to determine who will play Golden State in the Western Conference Finals. These two games should be a lot of un to watch and very difficult to predict.

We missed our Best Bet on Friday even though we picked Golden State to win, but thought Memphis would beat the 8.5-point spread. Our Best Bet of the Day record now stands at 96-49 in 2022.

We went 1-1 betting the MoneyLine and our overall record stands at 480-234 since Jan.1st.

These two games are tough today and it will be a play here and there that will decide the outcome. Let’s look at the Dallas-Phoenix game and see what there is to bet.

Dallas at Phoenix (-6.5)): The series is tied at 3-3: Phoenix had a chance to end the series in Dallas on Thursday, and were blown out 113-86, to send the two teams back to Arizona for the deciding Game 7. Both teams have been unbeatable at home and very average on the road. So, it form holds up, this should be an easy win for the Suns. However, Game 7’s are a different animal and I will be shocked if this game isn’t close. The Mavericks have received a heroic performance from Luka Doncic who has averaged over 30 points per game throughout the playoff run. Phoenix hasn’t had an answer for him and when Jalen Brunson, Reggie Bullock, and others give him some support Dallas has dominated. That will be a big key for the Mavs tonight, because other than Doncic, they have been inconsistent on the road. The Suns have been a hard team to figure out throughout the entire playoffs to this point. They have had some games where they have been special and looked invincible, and others where they have appeared to be disinterested and soft. Chris Paul has had three straight subpar shooting games in this series and has looked his age at times. Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton have done a decent job and they will have to play well in this one. Dallas should feel very little pressure because everyone is expecting a Phoenix win in this one. On the other hand, Phoenix had the best record in the NBA in the regular season, and a loss in a Game 7 at home in the 2nd round, would be a disaster. I like the Suns to win because of the home floor, but I think Dallas is certainly capable of pulling off an upset. That’s why I’m going Dallas and the points. PAPA DUDES PICK: Dallas +6.5
