Armadillo: Tuesday's six-pack

Some over/under win totals for college football this coming fall:

— Utah 6.5, over -$120

— Virginia Tech, 9

— Washington, 9.5

— Washington State 7.5, over -$125

— West Virginia 7, over -$120

— Wisconsin 9.5, over -$125

**********

Armadillo: Tuesday's List of 13: Nobody asked me, but……..

13) Apparently there are severe political problems in Venezuela which are stressing out lot of the Venezuelan ballplayers playing in the major leagues here.

Chip Caray said on the Braves game last night there are over 90 players/coaches from Venezuela in professional baseball right now. If a ballplayer here speaks out against what is going on there, it can have severe repercussions for his family back home. Not a good situation.

12) So far, 631 college basketball players have announced the intent to transfer; 271 of them haven’t said where they’re going yet. Thats just about two transfers per Division I team.

11) According to people in Las Vegas who know about such things, when Celtics (+16) won Game 3 in Cleveland Sunday, it was the third biggest upset in ANY NBA game in the last 22 years, coming after a Nuggets (+17) upset of Washington in ’97 and the Lakers’ (+17) upset of Golden State last fall.

10) Gonzaga/Creighton signed to play a home/home series; sounds a made-for-TV deal, which is good for us, the viewing public. Good for Gonzaga’s strength of schedule, too. Creighton plays in the Big East, so their SOS doesn’t need the help.

9) No baseball team has ever started 12-24 or worse and rallied to make the playoffs.

8) Last fall, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones gave around 200 policemen in North Little Rock game tickets and transportation to Cowboys’ games in Dallas, as a way of thanking them for their service. Now all that has been ruled an ethics violation, for the cops accepting the gifts. Jones refused reimbursement; seems to me that all this lacks some common sense, but thats just me.

7) Monday was former major league pitcher Tommy John’s 74th birthday; the crafty lefty pitched 2,544 innings AFTER the revolutionary elbow surgery in 1963, that now bears his name.

6) Atlanta Hawks’ Paul Millsap is voiding the last year for his $21.4M contract and will become a free agent this summer. Millsap is 32 but still a highly productive player.

5) Braves 5, Pirates 2— Ender Inciarte had five hits for the Braves, first Atlanta player to do that since Jason Hayward four years ago.

Newly acquired Matt Adams homered for the Braves, making him the first person to homer for two different teams in brand new SunTrust Park— he homered for St Louis there earlier this season.

4) We talked a few days ago about Arizona’s Chris Iannetta getting hit by a pitch in the face, breaking his nose and a couple of teeth. Iannetta came off the 7-day DL Sunday and hit a homer in his first at-bat back, which can’t be an easy thing to do.

3) Warriors 129, Spurs 115— Took Kevin Durant’s advice and watched baseball instead. Golden State now awaits the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, assuming Cleveland can put away an underdog Celtics team playing without its best player, Isaiah Thomas.

This was the last NBA game for Manu Ginobili, who had a great, great career.

2) Two drivers who will compete in the Indianapolis 500 this weekend were robbed at gunpoint of a drive-thru window at a Taco Bell in Indianapolis Sunday night. The crime was perpetrated by two kids, a 14 and 15-year old, at 9:40 pm. I have no idea what else to say about this.

1) Nashville 6, Anaheim 3— Predators are in the Stanley Cup final for the first time ever.

Tuesday's Eastern Conference Game 4 Betting Preview: Celtics at Cavaliers

Boston Celtics at Cleveland Cavaliers (-14.5, 215.5)

Cavaliers lead series 2-1

The Boston Celtics recorded an improbable victory to get back in the series and now attempt to even it up when they visit the second-seeded Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals. The Celtics appeared ready to go down meekly after losing star point guard Isaiah Thomas but instead posted a final-second 111-108 victory on Sunday to trim their deficit to 2-1.

Thomas (hip) is done for the postseason, so it was backcourt mate Avery Bradley taking the big shot and delivering the game-winning 3-pointer with 0.1 seconds left to cap a comeback from a 21-point, third-quarter deficit. "We were playing way better. I don't know how to phrase it other than that - we were playing way better," Boston coach Brad Stevens told reporters of the difference between Sunday's win and a 44-point loss in Game 2. "We were getting good shots on offense and playing with great purpose, and on defense I thought we were much better than the score indicated. I think that when you play better, you feel better." The top-seeded Celtics broke the Cavaliers' record-tying 13-game postseason winning streak and limited red-hot forward LeBron James to 11 points, his fourth-lowest output in 210 career playoff games. "I had a tough game, period," James told reporters. "I didn't have it. That's all I've got to say about my performance."

TV: 8:30 p.m. ET, TNT

LINE HISTORY: Despite the shocking Game 3 loss, oddsmakers aren't deterred, opening the Cavaliers as 15-point home favorites for Game 4. However, bettors think the Celtics will show up again and the line has already moved down to -14.5. The total hit the board at 216 and has been bet down a half-point to the current number of 215.5.

INJURY REPORT:

Celtics - PF A. Johnson (Questionable Tuesday, shoulder), PG I. Thomas (Out for season, hip).

Cavaliers - No injuries to report.

ABOUT THE CELTICS: Marcus Smart was a nonfactor by averaging five points on 2-of-11 shooting over the first two games but he stepped up with Thomas out and put on a spectacular performance. The third-year guard was 7-of-10 from 3-point range while producing 27 points and seven assists and putting forth his typical feisty effort that grates on opposing players. "Everybody had to step up their game, especially with one of our brothers down," Smart told reporters. "Our love and support goes out to Isaiah. We wish he could be here but we understand. We just kept fighting. Everybody did their part."

ABOUT THE CAVALIERS: James was on a tear with eight consecutive 30-points efforts and was averaging 34.3 points before he basically disappeared in the second half by missing eight of nine shots and finishing 4-of-13 from the field. He was testy after Sunday's game and then avoided reporters on Monday to leave his teammates and coach Tyronn Lue to explain his dreadful performance "No blame," Lue told reporters. "We're all to blame. We lost; it happens. For a guy who played great for five straight months, he's got to have a bad game sooner or later. He's human. He didn't shoot the ball well. It wasn't his ordinary game."

TRENDS:

* Cavaliers are 7-0 ATS in their last seven games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
* Road team is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings.
* Over is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Cleveland.
* Over is 21-7 in Cavaliers last 28 games following a SU loss.

WNBA Betting Recap - 5/13-5/21

League Betting Notes (Saturday, May 13 through Sunday, May 21)

-- Favorites went 13-3 straight up (SU)
-- Underdogs went 10-6 against the spread (ATS)
-- Home teams posted a 9-7 SU record
-- Road teams posted a 10-6 ATS record
-- The 'under' went 10-6

Team Betting Notes

-- Atlanta (2-1) kicked off its season with a pair of road wins and covers, posting its first 2-0 start since the 2014 season. The second victory came at the expense of Chicago (1-2), who began life after Elena Della Donne, who was traded in the offseason. However, it was the Sky winning the second end of the home-and-home in Atlanta, winning 75-71 as 6 1/2-point underdogs to fire out to a 2-1 ATS start.

-- Washington (1-2) suffered a 10-point setback at Seattle (2-1) on Sunday, as the Mystics dropped to 0-3 ATS to kick off their campaign. The 81-71 loss was also the first 'under' result for Washington after a pair of 'over' finishes. The cover Sunday for the Storm was its first of the season in three tries.

-- New York (1-1) split their first two games. They topped San Antonio (0-3) to fire out of the chute with a win, but the Liberty failed to cover in either of the outings, including a 90-71 blasting from Minnesota (3-0) at home. The Liberty should be well rested with five days between that outing against the Lynx and a trip to face Phoenix (2-1) on Tuesday.

-- The Stars might be winless in three tries, but they have been keeping it close. They're 3-0 ATS to start the season, covering all three games as double-digit underdogs.

-- The Lynx will play host to Connecticut (0-2) on Tuesday, and their modest two-game 'over' streak will be put to the test. The 'under' is 2-0 for the Sun so far out of the box.

-- The 'under' is a perfect 3-0 for the Mercury through three outings, but they're just 1-2 ATS during the early going.

-- Indiana (1-2) has failed to cover each of the past two while the 'under' has cashed in each outing.

-- Dallas (1-1) split their first two outings of the season, topping the Mercury as eight-point underdogs in the desert on May 14. They also played the Lynx tough, dropping an 89-87 decision on Saturday as 10 1/2-point underdogs. As such, the Wings are an impressive 2-0 ATS to start.

-- Last, but certainly not least, the defending champion Los Angeles (2-0) have won and covered their first two games at home, winning by an average of 10.0 points per game. They'll hit the road for the first time, kicking off a three-game sojourn against the Fever on Wednesday.
