    Armadillo: Sunday's six-pack

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

    — Alabama 10.5, over -$150

    — Ohio State 10, over -$125

    — Penn State 9.5, under -$125

    — Florida State 9.5, over -$130

    — Clemson 9

    — Oklahoma 9.5, over -$145


    Armadillo: Sunday's List of 13: Random stuff on a spring Sunday……..

    13) Lebron James isn’t one of the three finalists for NBA’s MVP; they should change the name of the award to Player of the Year, because no one is as valuable to their team as James is to the Cavaliers. He is so consistently great he gets taken for granted.

    12) Atlanta Braves acquired 1B Matt Adams from St Louis for a minor leaguer; they need a bat with Freddie Freeman out for the next 2-3 months.

    11) Baseball oddity; in Jason deGrom’s last two starts, he had the same home plate umpire, Phil Cuzzi, who switched crews this week, for some reason. Very rare for the same umpire to work two starts in a row by the same pitcher.

    10) Cloud Computing ($28.80) won the Preakness, only the 4th time in the last 34 years the Preakness winner was a horse that didn’t run in the Kentucky Derby.

    9) White Sox are apparently close to signing 19-year old outfielder Luis Robert, who is thought to be the best unsigned Cuban prospect right now. The young man defected from Cuba and is Haiti these days— he is going to be really, really rich pretty soon.

    8) Best wishes to Vikings coach Mike Zimmer, who recently had an 8th operation on his right eye, after he detached a retina last year. Zimmer missed one game and coached another while wearing an eye patch.

    7) Texas Rangers quietly won ten games in a row; while they’re still 6.5 games behind Houston in the AL West, if the playoffs started now, Texas would be one of the Wild Card teams.

    6) When he went to the NBA Combine 10 years ago, Kevin Durant couldn’t lift 185 pounds, which isn’t good but hasn’t seemed to hamper his career much. Now Durant advises prospects to skip the combine. At some point in all of this scouting over-analysis, the primary question has to be: “Can he play?”, not “Is he is a candidate to win a gold medal in the clean-and-jerk?”

    5) Astros’ pitching ace Dallas Keuchel is on the 10-day DL with a pinched nerve in his neck. The new 10-day DL allows teams to simply skip a pitcher’s turn if he has a minor injury, which this one supposedly is.

    4) Pointspreads on Cavaliers (-14.5) and Warriors (-13.5) this weekend are the biggest in any NBA conference final game since 2005.

    3) Before the Nationals-Braves game Saturday, after the national anthem on what was Military Appreciation Day, Bryce Harper posed for pictures with service members for several minutes. Pretty cool to see; the media is so quick to point out bad things about people. Nice to see the good things these guys do.

    2) Oklahoma City Thunder’s Enes Kanter is from Turkey; he was traveling in Europe this weekend, but because of his political beliefs (I have no idea what they are), his passport was voided by the Turkish government. With no “valid” passport, Kanter was not allowed to enter Romania and was later put on a flight to London, on his way back to this country.

    NBA has thought about putting some teams in Europe eventually; you wonder if stuff like this will put a kibosh on those ideas. It is a crazy world out there.

    1) Think about this week in Washington, when Kurdish protestors were getting beat up by the Turkish president’s bodyguards out in the open on the street; Turkey must be a really fun place to live. We are lucky to live in this country; it isn’t perfect here, but it is a hell of a lot better than most places.

    I don't know what the hell is going on with internet functions today. I can't access most of these sources today. I'll keep trying but it's just next to impossible under these conditions.

    I've talked to several other people this morning who all seem to be experiencing the same thing. It must be a Microsoft update problem because it's effecting all my browsers. Hell, I can't even access browser contained pages like settings, extensions, plug-ins, history, faves..........NOTHING!!!!

    Do we U.S. Americans do anything well anymore? It sure doesn't seem that way.

    Could this be a government intervention? They really don't like us being able to access information freely and they surely don't like the idea of money leaving the country except, of course, for their own money that is stashed all over the world in secret accounts. I guess it might be but it's more likely that it's just Silicon Valley people thinking again.

    p.s. I usually don't like to use anything in these threads that's just someone's opinion, including my own, as opposed to a verifiable fact. I'm just a tiny bit pissed this morning. Please excuse me.

    Sunday's NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Betting Preview: Senators at Penguins

    Ottawa Senators at Pittsburgh Penguins (-185, 5)

    Series tied 2-2

    The Ottawa Senators used a blistering-hot start to put the Pittsburgh Penguins on their heels in Game 3, only to sputter out of the blocks in the following contest and see the visitors even the Eastern Conference final at two victories apiece. Coach Guy Boucher's charges look for a better start out of the gate on Sunday afternoon as the series shifts to PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh for Game 5.

    "They played with urgency, which was to be expected. Stanley Cup champions, they bounce back in every series," Boucher told reporters after the Penguins matched their sum goal total from their first three contests of the series to post a 3-2 triumph in Game 4 on Friday. Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby set up defenseman Olli Maatta's game-opening goal and added a power-play tally for his first multi-point performance since sustaining a concussion on Washington defenseman Matt Niskanen's cross-check in Game 3 of the second-round series. "As I've said all along here, this group has a knack for responding the right way to any of the adversities or the challenges that this team has been faced with. I think it always starts with our leadership. It starts with our captain," Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said of Crosby, who is one helper shy of becoming the 22nd player in NHL history to collect 100 playoff assists.

    TV: 3 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC, TVAS

    LINE HISTORY: Oddsmakers opened the Penguins as big -195 home favorites and they were bet as high as -200. However since then, money has come back on the Senators, moving the line to the current number of Penguins -185. The total was set at 5.

    GOALIE MATCHUP: Craig Anderson (OTT) vs. Matt Murray (PIT)

    Anderson - GP: 16, W/L: 10-6, 2.25 GAA, .922 SAVE %, 1 SO
    Murray - GP: 2, W/L: 1-0, 1.69 GAA, .935 SAVE %


    Senators - D M. Borowiecki (Questionable Sunday, leg), LW A. Burrows (Questionable Sunday, leg), D C. Ceci (Questionable Sunday, lower body).

    Penguins - RW P. Hornqvist (Questionable Sunday, upper body), RW B. Rust (Questionable Sunday, upper body), D J. Schultz (Questionable Sunday, upper body), RW T. Kuhnhackl (Questionable Sunday, lower body), D C. Ruhwedel (Out Sunday, concussion), D K. Letang (Out for season, neck).

    ABOUT THE SENATORS: Ottawa mustered just three shots in the first three of four power-play opportunities in Game 4 to drop to 0-for-25 with the man advantage in the last nine contests. "I think everybody's frustrated. We just weren't connecting," said Kyle Turris, who was captured on camera jawing with captain Erik Karlsson on the bench. For his part, Karlsson has recorded an assist in back-to-back contests and is averaging a robust 28:25 of ice time in the postseason despite playing with two hairline fractures in his heel that presumably will require attention in the offseason.

    ABOUT THE PENGUINS: While Pittsburgh enjoyed its highest scoring output since Game 4 of the second-round series, the focus has shifted to the other end of the ice as a returning Matt Murray made 24 saves to mask the injury troubles of a beleaguered group of blue-liners. Chad Ruhwedel sustained a concussion in the first period following a hit from Bobby Ryan, forcing four of the five remaining defensemen to play more than 20 minutes on Friday (Maatta, 24:58; Brian Dumoulin, 23:29; Trevor Daley, 23:03; and Ron Hainsey, 20:42) while Ian Cole played 19:47. Justin Schultz, who sustained an upper-body injury in Game 2, may return for Game 5 in addition to forwards Bryan Rust (upper body), Patric Hornqvist (upper body) and Tom Kuhnhackl (lower body), Sullivan said on Saturday.


    * Penguins are 0-4 in their last four games following a win.
    * Senators are 3-13 in the last 16 meetings in Pittsburgh.
    * Under is 4-1-1 in the last six meetings.
    * Under is 8-2-1 in Penguins last 11 home games.
