Free NBA Western Conference Playoffs Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays for 5/9/22

Yesterday we saw two best of 7 matchups go to 2-2, as the 76ers and the Mavericks won and evened up those two series. Tonight we could see the very same thing happen in Milwaukee, but Golden State seems to have the upper hand over Memphis, especially since Ja Marant may not play tonight for the Grizzlies. We had a great week of betting the NBA and let’s hope we can stay hot.

We cashed our Best Bet yesterday, as the 76ers played their best game of the series and won 116-108, and with Embiid back in the lineup, Miami looks vulnerable. Going into the new week our Best Bet of the Day record is now 93-47 in 2022.

We went 2-0 betting the MoneyLine and our overall record stands at 474-230 since Jan.1st.

Let’s look at the Memphis-Golden State tonight and see what Vegas is thinking.

Memphis at Golden State (-10): Golden State leads the series 2-1: It is hard to predict this game because we don’t know if Ja Marant is going to play for the Grizzlies after the knee injury he suffered in the 4th quarter Saturday night. He is listed as doubtful, but hasn’t been ruled officially as being out. It didn’t matter who was in the lineup for Memphis is Game 3 as the Warriors played, close to perfect, in a 142-112 blowout. Golden State shot 63% from the field, including 17-32 from behind the arc. Stephen Curry led the way with 31 points and was 14-14 from the free throw line. Jordan Poole was outstanding and chipped in another 27 and Klay Thompson added 21 points as well. Memphis will get Jordan Dillon back tonight from a one-game suspension and that will help, but they are going to need a lot more than that. I will be surprised if Marant doesn’t play, but how much will the sore knee affect him. I don’t expect the Warriors to shoot as well tonight, but they seem to have their mojo back and are playing very well. I don’t like the spread, but I’m betting they cover.
