Free NBA Western Conference Playoffs Picks, Best Bets and Parlays for 5/6/22

The NBA Playoffs are back in action after a night off for all everyone on Thursday. For some strange reason, the teams that played on Wednesday night are back at it again today and the teams that played on Tuesday are off until Saturday. I would like somebody to explain that one to me. Anyway, we shall have to wait another day to see Ja Marant get back into action. Meanwhile, these two games are very difficult to pick tonight.

On Wednesday night, we cashed both of our Best Bets as both the Heat and the Suns were winners and covered the spread. That raised our Best Bet of the Day record to 91-46 in 2022.

We correctly predicted both games and went 2-0 betting the MoneyLine and our overall record stands at 469-229 since Jan.1st.

We also cashed the Parlay turning a $10 wager into a Payout of $68.36.

Let’s look at the Phoenix-Dallas game tonight and see what Vegas thinks about this one.

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET* Phoenix (-1) at Dallas: Phoenix leads the series 2-0: The Suns have put together two outstanding games to take a commanding lead in the series. They shot 64% from the field in Game 2 and looked like the dominant team we saw in the regular season. It is unrealistic to assume they are going to shoot it that well tonight in Dallas. But, the Mavericks haven’t shown that they have any answers on the defensive end against the Suns. People point to the fact that no one is stepping up to help Luka Doncic and that is true. But the biggest problem may be the inability to slow down the Phoenix offense. I expect the Mavericks to come out tonight and play their best game of the series; I just don’t know that it will be enough. With a line this small, I’m sticking with Phoenix. PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Phoenix -1


We are playing the 2 NBA games and a hockey game in this parlay which is based on Joel Embiid playing for the 76ers.

Leg 1: Miami (-3) at Philadelphia: Bet the MoneyLine on Philadelphia +135

Leg 2: Phoenix (-1) at Dallas : Bet the MoneyLine on Phoenix -110

Leg 3: Toronto at Tampa Bay: Bet the MoneyLine on the Lightning -120

Bet $10 for a Payout of $72.25
