    Quote of the Day (apparently this is Steve Kerr quote week)


    “Nothing has been done. It doesn’t seem to matter to our government that children are being shot to death day after day in schools. It doesn’t matter that people are being shot at a concert, in a movie theater. It’s not enough, apparently, to move our leadership, our government, people that are running this country, to actually do anything. That’s demoralizing.”
    Steve Kerr, whose father was assassinated in Lebanon in 1984


    Thursday’s quiz


    If you drive straight north from New York City thru upstate New York until you get to Canada, which Canadian province would you be in when you get there?


    Wednesday’s quiz


    Nets, Pacers, Spurs, Nuggets are the four NBA teams used to play in the ABA.


    Tuesday’s quiz


    Salem is the capital of Oregon.




    Thursday’s List of 13: Doing some thinking out loud…….


    13) 17 innocent people died Wednesday in Florida, in a school shooting. In this country so far in 2018, there have been 18 school shootings in 35 school days; something needs to be done about crazy people having assault rifles, which is what this lunatic had.


    12) 50 years ago Wednesday was the first NBA game in the new Madison Square Garden in NYC; Knicks beat the San Diego Rockets 114-102. San Diego had a sub named Pat Riley who scored a basket off the bench; Knicks had a player named Phil Jackson score 14 points for them— wonder whatever happened to those two guys?


    11) Wizards 118, Knicks 113— Washington trailed by 27 with 2:41 left in the first half, by 21 at the half, but they rallied for an unlikely win. Knicks have now lost eight games in a row.


    10) Providence 76, Villanova 71— Wildcats lost for the second time in their last three games.


    9) Former Florida coach Jim McElwain is the new offensive coordinator at Michigan.


    8) Last four years, Oregon is 22-0 SU in Pac-12 regular season games, from Valentine’s Day until the end of the regular season.


    7) North Texas hosts Western Kentucky in a Conference USA game tonight; Mean Green is 7-5 in C-USA this year, after being 30-60 the last five years. All 12 of North Texas’ conference games this season have been decided by seven or fewer points.


    6) Scary car accident in Los Angeles Tuesday night, where a Ferrari clipped a SUV while apparently going very fast; the driver of the Ferrari died when the car overturned- his passenger was pro golfer Bill Haas, who is in serious but stable condition in the hospital. Actor Luke Wilson was driving the SUV; a woman passenger in one of the cars was injured.


    5) If/when the Raiders cut Sebastian Janikowski in the next few days, Tom Brady would be the only NFL player drafted before 2003 who is still with the team that drafted him.


    4) 16 of 30 NBA teams have a guy from Duke; 15 of 30 have a guy from Kentucky.


    3) Last college player to shoot 40%+ from the arc and average 10+ rebounds a game was Kevin Durant; North Carolina’s Luke Maye has a chance to do that this season.


    2) Auburn has trailed by double figures in eight games this season; they’re 5-3 in those games.


    1) RIP Tito Francona, Terry Francona’s dad, who passed away at age 84. Tito Francona played in the majors for 15 years for nine teams, hitting .272 with a .343 on-base %age.

    I say this every year, but there’s no better sport to bet on in order to fill that cavernous NFL void than the NHL. It’s a notoriously volatile market that pays out well if you know where to look. Generally speaking, hockey is one of those sports where you can easily ride out streaking teams. So which ones are raiding the win column? That might not be the right question. What you should be asking is which teams are about to heat up.

    TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS (9-1 SU IN LAST 10 GAMES)



    The upstart Leafs were in an ugly slump through almost all of January but have turned things around in a mighty way. A dazzling 6-3 win over Columbus was highlighted by Kadri notching five points in a true team effort. Of course, Freddy Anderson had to turn away 54 shots because it’s Toronto, he’s been coming up huge as of late.


    While the Maple Leafs are getting absolutely murdered on the puckline because of a tragically poor defence that allows 34.1 shots against per game (29th), this team is so good offensively that they’re still a great take on the moneyline. Auston Matthews leads the team with 47 points and an absurdly high plus-minus of 24, while goalie Freddie Anderson is in a bit of a rhythm right now.


    Toronto also has a pretty favorable schedule in the next week or so, and while they have a bit of trouble on the road, they’re paying out at a rate of 65.5 percent when hosting. There’s no doubt that this young team will take its lumps, but when they’re on point, you have to bet them. And if rumors are true and Rick Nash arrives in town to bolster their second line, the rest of the Eastern Conference is in deep trouble.


    Next Games: at Pittsburgh (2/17), at Detroit (2/18), vs. Florida (2/20), vs. NYI (2/22), vs. Boston (2/24)


    LOS ANGELES KINGS (+231 ON THE MONEYLINE THIS SEASON)


    The Kings made waves by somehow shipping Marion Gaborik’s seemingly immovable contract out of town by taking on another salary that was thought to be anchored deep. Dion Phaneuf is coming to Hollywood! Everyone loves ragging on him, but Phaneuf is a perfect gap filler for what this team needs. The Kings rely heavily on a thick blue line that’s already defended by the likes of Drew Doughty. Shoring up the second unit will be a synch for Phaneuf, who has regressed slightly but is still a minutes monster and a big threat to rip one from distance.


    All in all, I love this move for Los Angeles. Their offence is in a hodling pattern these days and the team has gone just 6-4 SU in the last 10 games, but that should change once Phaneuf suits up as early as this Thursday. This is a buy-low team that has an uphill climb on the road where they’ll have some strong value. If you ride them, you’ll only need two wins on the road for them to payout handsomely, and the first one could be a doozy if they score the upset.


    Their schedule over the next week is absolutely gettable.


    Next Games: at Pittsburgh (2/15), at Buffalo (2/17), at Chicago (2/19), at Winnipeg (2/20), vs. Dallas (2/22)


    COLORADO AVALANCHE (+1242 ON THE MONEYLINE THIS SEASON)


    Colorado is good because they’re deep ad they play to their strengths. There’s no denying that the Avalanche are a tasty treat for bettors, and though the oddsmakers have caught up, and things have been dicey on the road for this squad, they have a delectable schedule coming up.


    What the Avs do well is get quality shots and kill penalties well. They’re 3rd in the league when giving the man advantage and have given up on trying to be good at face-offs by skating their young hearts out. There’s a lot to love about how hard these guys work, and that can be the big difference night in and night out in NHL betting.


    They be out of the playoffs for now, but a strong run against a soft schedule this week can rectify that. These guys have been making the oddsmaker pay all year long. Bet away and bet often.


    Next Games: at Winnipeg (2/16), vs. Edmonton (2/18), at Vancouver (2/20), at Edmonton (2/22) vs. Calgary (2/24)

    BET AGAINST THESE TEAMS…

    It’s bad for these guys and it’s just getting worse.


    MONTREAL CANADIENS (3-7 SU IN LAST 10 GAMES)

    The Canadians are simply no good right now. Even their self righcheous fans are keeping quiet during the season. That’s when you know it’s truly bad. With the league’s second-worst defence (2.5 goals per game), the Canadiens are in the gutter against both the puckline and the moneyline. There’s some sneak value at home, but it’s impossible to predict which games they’re going to show up in. If you want to make a quick buck, then just bet against Montreal. That’s been one of the best bets in the NHL all year.

    ANAHEIM DUCKS (-367 on the MONEYLINE THIS SEASON)



    Everyone who grew up in any other decade prior to the turn of the century has a soft spot for Anaheim because of those goofy movies. And while the on ice product that this franchise has put together certainly deserves some attention, the Ducks are just way too erratic overall as they continue to search for some fresh scoring. They currently rank 23rd in goals for with just 2.7 per game, despite boasting some of the most capable lamp lighters in the NHL. A lot of it is because nobody’s scared of their blue line. They just don’t threaten the crease with booming power or any precision.

    Armadillo: Friday's six-pack

    Odds to win the National League this season:

    9-4— Los Angeles Dodgers

    3-1— Washington Nationals

    7-2— Chicago Cubs

    9-1— St Louis Cardinals

    15-1— Mets-Arizona-Milwaukee-Rockies-Giants

    50-1— Pittsburgh, Philadelphia


    **********

    Armadillo: Friday's List of 13: Random stuff on a winter day

    13) Arizona 77, Arizona State 70— Pretty intense rivalry game. An Arizona male cheerleader was tossed by the refs for taunting an ASU player.

    Arizona coach Sean Miller sweated thru his suit jacket. Sweating thru your dress shirt is one thing, but if you sweat so much it soaks thru your suitcoat too, thats some serious stress.

    Solid win for the Wildcats; ASU is now 7-7 and in 7th place in the Pac-12.

    12) USC 72, Oregon 70— Trojans survived 5-12 shooting on foul line and snapped a 3-game skid, scoring on an alley-oop pass for the game-winner with 0:00.6 left.

    11) Wichita State 93, Temple 86— Owls led 56-42 at the half, but scored only 30 points in the second half, as their 5-game win streak ended. Temple beat the Shockers in Philly, so Wichita might want to avoid the Owls in the A-14 tournament.

    10) Houston 67, Cincinnati 62— Bearcats’ first loss since December 9 to Florida; I’m guessing on Selection Sunday, someone will interview a smiling Kelvin Sampson after his Cougars make the Field of 68— this win should get them in.

    9) Pacers-Pelicans NBA game that was postponed last week because of a leaky roof in New Orleans has been rescheduled for March 21.

    8) Seattle’s new 1B Ryon Healy has a real injury; he had an operation to have bone spurs taken out of his hand— he’ll be out 4-6 weeks.

    7) Orioles signed pitcher Andrew Cashner for two years, $16M; he ain’t going to like the short dimensions at Camden Yards.

    6) Wisconsin 57, Purdue 53— Badgers retired Frank Kaminsky’s number 44, and then went out and handed Purdue its third loss in a row. First half of this game was amazingly ugly.

    5) Denver 134, Milwaukee 123— Nikola Jokic had a triple-double….in the first half!!!

    4) Penn State 79, Ohio State 56— Nittany Lions were up 24 at the half. Impressive.

    3) Bengals’ backup QB AJ McCarron won a grievance with the league, will become an unrestricted free agent next month, which means he’ll be really rich fairly soon.

    2) Football players must hate baseball; Dodger pitcher Alex Wood “tweaked his ankle during calisthenics” Thursday, so he’ll be out a few days. Someone in the NFL “tweaks his ankle” and it doesn’t exactly make the injury report. Plus all baseball contracts are guaranteed.

    I’m 58 years old; there’s a fair-to-midland chance I could get thru calisthenics without tweaking my ankle. As long as calisthenics didn’t include any running ��

    1) Minnesota Timberwolves’ starting five players are all in the top 38 in the NBA in minutes played, which is part of why Minnesota is so improved this year (36-25).

    Armadillo: Saturday's six-pack


    Over/under win totals for baseball this season:


    Houston Astros 96.5


    Los Angeles Dodgers 96.5


    Cleveland Indians 94.5


    Washington Nationals 92.5


    Boston Red Sox 91.5


    Miami Marlins 64.5




    **********


    Armadillo: Saturday's List of 13: Random thoughts, mostly about Las Vegas


    13) My favorite dinner place in Las Vegas is Battitsta’s, a hole-in-the-wall place behind the Cromwell and next to Bally’s. Very good Italian place; old school, with checked tablecloths and an older guy who walks around playing the accordion.


    Runner up place to eat is the Mirage, where they have the Carnegie Deli, with the biggest sandwiches ever. I order extra bread and make two sandwiches out of it.


    Another good restaurant is in the Stratosphere, but I can’t remember the name of it; it is an Italian place downstairs and it is really good- lighting is dark and reminds you of scenes in different movies.


    12) If you like basketball, Las Vegas is a fun place to live; UNLV hoops are lot of fun to go to; they’re having a resurgent year this season- little disappointed the public hasn’t caught on to them that much yet, but part of that is how well the new hockey team is doing.


    11) In July, NBA Summer League is at UNLV for a good part of the month; for $30, you can sit in an air conditioned arena all day long and watch guys try to make the NBA.


    Later in July, the best high school players in the western US play in tournaments all over Las Vegas. All the college coaches you see on TV all winter are there at one time or another— lot of good basketball.


    10) Then in March, the WCC, WAC, Mountain West and Pac-12 all have their conference tournaments in Las Vegas. Lot of good action to choose from.


    9) There is a Pinball Museum on Flamingo Road; you can go in and play these old-time pinball machines for a quarter. its a quirky fun way to spend a couple of hours.


    8) There is a never a shortage of shows, concerts to go to in Las Vegas; plus the Golden Knights have 41 home games a year now. Jewel is playing at the Wynn in late March; Donnie and Marie play in Vegas all the time. Carrot Top has his comedy act there all the time. Lot of stuff going on.


    7) Best sportsbook in Las Vegas is definitely the Westgate, where I stayed the last 11 days; huge place, good bar, three food options, just by the sports book and tremendous TV screens to watch almost anything you want. On NFL Sundays, the Westgate opens their theater to show NFL games.


    6) The Neon Museum downtown has a lot of old neon signs from old casinos that don’t exist anymore; its an oddly cool piece of history, especially at dusk, when they light some of the signs.


    5) They play AAA baseball at Cashman Field downtown in the spring/summer; this will be the last year for the Mets’ AAA team in Las Vegas. They’re also building a new ballpark out in the northwest section of town, up in Summerlin. No word on whose AAA team will move in, with the Mets’ team moving to Syracuse in 2019.


    4) One thing about the Las Vegas airport; people arriving at the airport most always look happier than people flying out of Las Vegas.


    3) Had a 3.5-hour layover in Baltimore’s airport Friday night, which would’ve been lot more palatable if they had decent WiFi there. They do have Chick-fil-A though and Chick-fil-A is tremendous.


    2) St Bonaventure 77, Rhode Island 74— Rams’ 16-game winning streak is over. Bonnies have won eight games in a row.


    1) I’m back in my palatial suburban estate after 11 days in the desert; Las Vegas is great fun to visit- there was a magic convention at my hotel while I was there (no, things didn’t keep disappearing) and I went to a UNLV game (NHL tickets are too expensive since the Knights are doing so well). A full 11 days of fun, plus I missed a snowstorm. Worth it!!!!

    Sunday’s 6-pack


    — 1B Eric Hosmer gets $18M a year for eight years from the San Diego Padres.


    — Georgetown covered six of its last seven games.


    — Indiana Hoosiers are 8-0 vs spread in conference home games.


    — There were no seniors on either roster in Alabama-Kentucky game. None.


    — Notre Dame 84, BC 67— Matt Farrell was 10-12 on the arc for the Irish.


    — Tampa Bay traded P Jake Odorizzi to the Twins for a SS prospect; they also acquired 1B CJ Cron from the Angels, and DFA’d DH Corey Dickerson- he was an All-Star LY.


    Quote of the Day


    “I’m incredibly proud of our players for using the platform they have as players in the NBA and on social media to speak out on issues that are important to them. And I was proud of LeBron and Kevin’s response to the comments that were made about them.”
    NBA commish Adam Silver


    Sunday’s quiz


    Which NBA team drafted Kobe Bryant?


    Saturday’s quiz


    Bill Murray’s son is an assistant coach at Xavier.


    Friday’s quiz


    Montgomery is the capital of Alabama.


    ************************


    Sunday’s List of 13: Wrapping up a college hoop Saturday


    13) Kansas 77, West Virginia 69— Jayhawks were 26-35 on foul line, West Virginia was 1-2, in a game the Mountaineers led by 12 with 10:18 left. To say they got hosed is an understatement.


    This is third straight series game Mountaineers had a double-digit lead over Kansas but lost.


    12) Michigan State 66, Northwestern 60— Spartans were down 27 in first half, 22 at the half. This was one of those scores, when I saw it, thought it was a girls’ score or a mistake, but then State rallies for an unlikely win.


    11) South Carolina 84, Auburn 75— Tigers split their last four games after a 21-2 start. Auburn lost 6-7 McLemore, a solid rebounder, with a severe leg injury.


    10) Idaho 79, Montana 77 OT— Vandals made 12-19 on arc as Grizzlies went 0-2 this weekend after starting the week unbeaten in Big Sky play. Big Sky is ranked as the 18th-best conference this year, highest it has been rated since 2010- they were 25th or lower the last six years.


    9) Marquette 90, Creighton 86— Marquette lost five of its last seven games; they allowed 85-86 points in the two wins. Not a strong defensive team.


    8) Villanova 95, Xavier 79— Wildcats were only 3-5 on foul line, 16-34 on arc- this is not the way to get to a Final Four— you need some kind of inside presence and production. This is obviously a good win, but unless Villanova gets more scoring inside, they’ll have a short March.


    7) Upsets of the Day:
    Eastern Kentucky (+11.5) 72, Tennessee State 59
    Santa Clara (+9) 72, Pacific 68
    James Madison (+8) 69, Towson State 66
    Marquette (+7.5) 90, Creighton 86
    Cal-Davis (+7.5) 71, UCSB 54
    VMI (+7) 75, Citadel 71
    Texas (+6.5) 77, Oklahoma 66


    6) UCLA 86, Oregon 78 OT— Tough weekend in LA for the Ducks, who lost at the buzzer at USC in last game Thursday. Bruins were 16-33 on the arc; they’re a surprising bubble team.


    5) There was a triple OT game Thursday and one on Friday; if you wagered against all four teams in their next game Saturday, you would’ve won three of four bets.


    4) A kid on Arizona State wore one maroon sneaker, one gold sneaker in the ASU-Arizona game Thursday. A player on Alabama wore one crimson sneaker, one white one in the Tide’s loss at Kentucky Saturday. Not sure if this is a growing trend, but if it is, you know each kid has another pair of sneakers at home, just like the mismatched pair.


    3) Texas 77, Oklahoma 66— Sooners lost five in row, 8 of last 10 games, as the Trey Young bandwagon is stuck in reverse. ESPN’s hype machine did this to the Ben Simmons-LSU team couple years ago; they put a target on the kid’s back by talking about him endlessly, then looked on in wonderment when the team suffers.


    2) Nebraska Cornhuskers won their last six games, covered 13 of their last 14 league games.


    1— Shout out to the fine folks at Albany Park & Ride; when I go to Las Vegas, often leave my car there, and they shuttle me to the nearby airport. When I come back, they have the car waiting for me in their lot and it is all very convenient, especially in winter time. Good place.

    McDavid has hat trick, Oilers top Avs 4-2
    February 18, 2018



    DENVER (AP) Connor McDavid had his third hat trick of the season and the Edmonton Oilers beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-2 on Sunday to snap a six-game losing streak.


    McDavid has 11 goals in the last nine games and two hat tricks. His first two goals tied it, and the third was into an empty net with 1:26 left. He has five goals in two games against Colorado this season.


    Ryan Strome also scored, and Cam Talbot had 24 saves to help the Oilers snap Colorado's 10-game home winning streak. Tyson Jost and Alexander Kerfoot scored for the Avalanche.


    PENGUINS 5, BLUE JACKETS 2.


    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Riley Sheahan scored two goals in the first period and rookie Tristan Jarry made 35 saves in Pittsburgh's victory over Columbus Blue Jackets 5-2.


    Jake Guentzel had a goal and two assists, and Brian Dumoulin and Zach Aston-Reese also scored for the Penguins. They have won five straight and 10 of their last 12. The win in front of a sellout crowd at Nationwide Arena moved them past Washington into first place in the Metropolitan Division.


    Artemi Panarin and Alexander Wennberg scored for Columbus.


    MAPLE LEAFS 3, RED WINGS 2

    NHL Betting Cheat Sheet and Odds: Islanders playing well and out for revenge
    Monty Andrews


    The Islanders have allowed the most goals in the NHL by a wide margin, but are coming off back-to-back 3-0 shutout victories over the Rangers and Hurricanes.


    This week we take a look at the Vegas Golden Knights who are the NHL's best moneyline wager this season and the second favorites in the futures market. Also, the Islanders travel to Toronto to take on the Leafs in what could be a potential revenge play. Monty Andrews dangles at the hash and goes bar down to give NHL bettors a breakdown of what to watch for this week on the ice.


    Vegas is the Best Bet


    No one could have predicted that the Vegas Golden Knights would be the top team in the NHL as of the middle of February - but that's where we are as the sensational expansion team continues to defy the odds. The Golden Knights look to continue their home-ice dominance Monday night as they entertain the Anaheim Ducks; Vegas is an incredible 22-4-2 at T-Mobile Arena, and has already beaten the Ducks in each of their first three meetings this season. The Golden Knights were a popular preseason novelty futures bet but are now going off at +700 on Bet365 to claim the Stanley Cup, the second-best odds in the league.


    Battle of East Powers


    Two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference face off Tuesday night in the U.S. capital as the Washington Capitals entertain the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Capitals are trying to fend off the Pittsburgh Penguins atop the Metropolitan Division, and continue to be led by the scoring exploits of NHL goals leader Alex Ovechkin. Washington enters the week a sizzling 20-4-2 SU in games in which Ovechkin scores. The Capitals also have the edge in their head-to-head series with the conference-leading Lightning, having earned three of a possible four points through their first two encounters.


    Armed for Vengeance?


    The New York Islanders appear to have figured out this whole goal prevention thing - and they'll look to put their new skill on display Thursday night in the second of three meetings this season with the Toronto Maple Leafs. The visiting Islanders have allowed the most goals in the NHL by a wide margin, but are coming off back-to-back 3-0 shutout victories over the New York Rangers and Carolina Hurricanes. The Isles will be looking to rebound from having been shut out themselves, dropping a 5-0 decision to the Maple Leafs in their first meeting of the season back on Jan. 31.

    Player News


    * The St. Louis Blues are reportedly in serious talks with Ottawa about acquiring Mike Hoffman and Derick Brassard from the Senators. The Blues enter the week in a battle with Dallas for third place in the Central, and are +1,800 to win the Cup.


    * The Calgary Flames have locked up a key part of their forward corps, signing winger Mikael Backlund to a six-year extension worth an average of $5.35 million per season. The Flames are 18-5-2 SU when Backlund records a point this season.


    * Nashville Predators general manager David Poile says he isn't close to make a deal ahead of the trade deadline. The defending Western Conference champions are installed at +900 to win the title, the fourth-best odds in the league entering the week.


    Injury Updates


    * The Colorado Avalanche welcomed leading scorer Nathan MacKinnon back to the lineup Sunday after he had missed the previous eight games with an upper-body injury. The Avalanche struggled in his absence, going 4-4-0 SU and 4-4 O/U.


    * The Florida Panthers also welcomed back a familiar face, as Roberto Luongo returned to the crease after a 27-game absence due to a lower-body injury. The Panthers are 7-7-2 SU in Luongo's appearances following Saturday's 6-3 win over Calgary.


    * There could be real problems in goal for the Philadelphia Flyers after Michal Neuvirth left Sunday's game against the Rangers with a lower-body injury. The Flyers are already without No. 1 option Brian Elliott, who is out several weeks with a core muscle injury.


    Stanley Cup Futures


    * It's a two-team battle for the best Stanley Cup odds among Canadian franchises. The Maple Leafs continue to lead the way at +1,000 on Bet365, with the Winnipeg Jets a close second at +1,100 entering the week. Calgary is third at +2,800.


    * The Penguins' recent hot streak has them skyrocketing up the odds list, now installed at +1,100 to win their third consecutive title. Pittsburgh is vying to become the first team since the New York Islanders in the early 80s to win three straight Stanley Cups.


    Over/Under Trends


    * The Metropolitan Division has been a dream for over bettors - at least when it comes to the top teams. Washington, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, New Jersey and the Islanders all have at least 31 overs as of Sunday afternoon.


    * The overs have been king league-wide over the previous seven days, with 27 of 45 games going above the total in that span as of Sunday afternoon. That surge makes it 446 overs on the season through Saturday's games, compared with 436 unders.
