    Armadillo: Wednesday's six-pack

    — Tom Brady has a sprained left shoulder, is expected to play against the Jets Sunday.

    — Game 4 of Cubs-Nationals got rained out; they’ll try again Wednesday at 4:00.

    — Texas Southern’s basketball team has 13 pre-conference games, all true road games.

    — Mets bought a AAA farm team in Syracuse, so Las Vegas 51’s will have a new parent club next season.

    — Bucs signed Patrick Murray as their new kicker; Fordham grad can also punt and once played Gaelic football in high school.

    — Las Vegas 5, Arizona 2– NHL’s expansion Golden Knights are 3-0.


    **********

    Armadillo: Wednesday's List of 13: Mid-week musings…….

    13) San Francisco 49ers are 25th NFL team since 1997 to play overtime games on consecutive weekends; Niners lost both games, are now 0-5, with last four losses all by 2 or 3 points.

    12) Of the previous 24 teams who played consecutive OT games, four had a bye the following week, so that takes us down to 20 teams- those 20 teams went 10-10 SU in the third week, but 12-7-1 against the spread.

    11) A breakdown according to how the teams did in the OT games:
    WW?— Teams that won both OT games went 2-2 vs spread in that third game.
    WL?— Teams were 1-3 vs spread in the third game.
    LL?— Teams were 4-2-1 vs spread; this is where the 49ers trend this week.
    LW?— Teams were 5-0 vs spread in the third game.

    10) For the record, Baltimore has played OT games on consecutive weekends four times in the last 21 years; no one else has done it more than twice.

    9) Ironic that with lot of college basketball coaches in hot water over fraud allegations with the shoe companies, the 16-team PK80 tournament taking place in Oregon next month to honor Phil Knight’s 80th birthday will be a big deal.

    16 teams, all Nike-affiliated, will play three games in this event; might make it easier for the FBI to serve their subpoenas, with so many teams in the same city all at once.

    8) Thru 4.5 games this season, Chicago Bears didn’t have a pass play longer than 30 yards, the only NFL team without one. Finally Chicago scored on a 38-yard TD pass in the third quarter Monday night; problem is, it was a pass thrown by punter Pat O’Donnell on a fake punt. Oy.

    7) Mitchell Trubisky is the 30th starting QB for the Bears in the last 25 years.

    6) San Diego State is bowl-eligible already, which means coach Rocky Long gets a $50,000 bonus, and the athletic director, for some reason, gets a $12,500 bonus.

    5) New Orleans Saints traded RB Adrian Peterson to the Cardinals Tuesday for a conditional draft pick. Why would a RB without great receiving skills have signed with a Payton/Brees team in the first place? Arizona’s skill players have lot of miles on them; we’ll see if this helps them.

    4) Greg Bird hit a home run in a 1-0 playoff game the other day; the first player to ever hit a home run in a 1-0 postseason game was Casey Stengel in 1923, he of course went on to be a famous manager in New York City, but he was also a good player, hitting .284 in 14 MLB seasons.

    3) Political trivia: when Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was in college, he was a drummer in the University of Texas marching band.

    2) I’m glad the NFL lightened up and allows (most) celebrations after TDs now. They don’t hurt anyone and I think most people like them. Maybe most importantly. the media likes them and over time, that will help the public’s perception of the league, which could use some help.

    1) RIP to the great QB YA Tittle, who played 17 years in the NFL with Colts-49ers-Giants; his W-L record was 78-50-5, but he never won a playoff game (0-4). Keep in mind it was a lot harder to make the playoffs back then. Mr Tittle passed away over the weekend at age 90.

    Tittle was also one of the opposing coaches against Al Pacino’s Miami Sharks in the excellent football movie Any Given Sunday. RIP, sir.

    Wednesday's MLB Division Series Betting Preview and Odds

    The Yankees are playing their third must-win game already in the playoffs after winning the wild-card game and staring down a 2-0 deficit in the ALDS.

    Another great day of playoff baseball will kick off with Game 4 between the Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, and this evening we will be treated to a thrilling Game 5 between the New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.

    Washington Nationals at Chicago Cubs (-125, 7)

    Cubs lead series 2-1

    After an unexpected day off, the Chicago Cubs will try to wrap up the National League Division Series when they host the Washington Nationals for Game 4 on Wednesday. The potential clincher was pushed back a day due to rain in Chicago on Tuesday, but the scheduled pitching matchup will remain the same with Chicago's Jake Arrieta squaring off against Tanner Roark.

    The extra day could benefit Arrieta, who was slotted fourth in the Cubs’ postseason rotation to allow him more time to rest his tender hamstring before making his first start since Sept. 26. Arrieta, who said his nagging right hamstring injury is a “non-issue,” hopes to follow the rest of Chicago's starting rotation, which has allowed two runs - one earned - in 18 2/3 innings over the first three games of the series. The day off also gave the Nationals the option of skipping Roark and pitching Game 1 starter Stephen Strasburg on regular rest, but manager Dusty Baker said Strasburg was “under the weather” and would not have been able to follow his routine of throwing a bullpen session two days before his start if called upon Wednesday. "I just think the atmosphere around here is amazing," Roark, who grew up about an hour’s drive from Wrigley Field, told reporters. "To pitch here at Wrigley, and to hear the fans, I know they are going to be crazy. I'll just do what I do best and try to keep them quiet." *Update - Stephen Strasburg will now start Game 4 for the Nationals.

    TV:
    4 p.m. ET, TBS

    PITCHING MATCHUP:
    Nationals RH Stephen Strasburg (15-4, 2.52 ERA) vs. Cubs RH Jake Arrieta (14-10, 3.53)

    Strasburg allowed only three hits and two unearned runs over seven innings of work in Game 1 of this series against the Cubs. He was pegged with the loss despite striking out 10 and only allowing one walk in the eventual 3-0 win by Chicago.

    Arrieta is 4-2 with a 3.64 ERA in seven starts over the last two postseasons, including a pair of wins in last year’s World Series. The 31-year-old has been outstanding at home throughout his tenure with the Cubs, going 30-14 with a 2.31 ERA in 59 outings. He hasn’t fared as well against the Nationals, however, as he’s 1-2 with a 5.48 ERA in nine meetings.

    TRENDS:


    * Nationals are 1-4 in their last 5 playoff games.
    * Cubs are 5-0 in their last 5 Divisional Playoff home games.
    * Under is 5-1 in Cubs' last 6 playoff home games.
    * Under is 4-0 in Arrieta's last 4 starts vs. Nationals.

    CONSENSUS:
    The public is leaning toward the home favorite Cubs with 64 percent of the picks and Over is grabbing 67 percent of the totals wagers.



    New York Yankees at Cleveland Indians (-190, 7.5)

    Series tied 2-2

    The Cleveland Indians have not lost three games in a row since July 30-Aug. 1, though it had been almost seven weeks between back-to-back setbacks before they dropped Games 3 and 4 of the American League Division Series. The AL's top seed will try to avoid a first-round knockout when the Indians host the surging New York Yankees in a decisive Game 5 of the ALDS on Wednesday.

    The Yankees, who will start veteran lefty CC Sabathia on Wednesday opposite Cleveland ace Corey Kluber, are playing their third must-win game already in the playoffs after winning the wild-card game and staring down a 2-0 deficit in the ALDS, and are confident in their ability to handle the pressure. "I've seen them step up a lot during the course of the season, but obviously, you know, when you're in the playoffs, I think it's important to learn how to win those games and I think you play -- you see players mature pretty quickly in these type of games," New York manager Joe Girardi told reporters. "So moving forward, I think it's important. Obviously, Wednesday's a really big game and let's see what happens." The Indians won 33 of their final 37 regular-season games but have arguably been the lesser team in this series - beginning with a Game 2 win that required the them to overcome a five-run deficit - and struggles at the top of the lineup from Francisco Lindor (1-for-14, five strikeouts) and Jose Ramirez (2-for-17, seven strikeouts) are part of the problem. "In one game, what we ultimately care about is when it's over, we're one run better than them, however we do it," Indians manager Terry Francona told reporters in reference to Lindor and Ramirez. "But it makes it easier when the guys up top are setting the tone for it."

    TV:
    8:08 p.m. ET, Fox Sports 1

    PITCHING MATCHUP:
    Yankees LH CC Sabathia (0-0, 3.38 ERA) vs. Indians RH Corey Kluber (0-0, 20.25)

    Girardi was heavily criticized for several decisions in Game 2's 13-inning loss, but the main gripe was his decision to yank Sabathia after 77 pitches and 5 1/3 innings. The 37-year-old retired 12 of the last 13 batters he faced and left with a five-run lead before watching the bullpen and Girardi let him down. Sabathia is 9-5 with a 4.47 ERA in 20 career postseason appearances and has had his struggles against Ramirez (4-for-8, two RBIs) and Lindor (5-for-9).

    Kluber suffered through his worst start of the season in Game 2, serving up six runs on seven hits - two homers - in 2 2/3 innings but was let off the hook when Cleveland stormed back for the win. Kluber started Game 7 of the World Series for the Indians last October, and his team has plenty of confidence in the Cy Young candidate. "It's hard to imagine giving it to somebody better," Francona told reporters of starting Kluber. "We tried to set up for a five-game series with plans, contingency plans, and pretty much everything is -- there's been a lot of things happen, and we go to Game 5, we're at home, and we have Kluber. It will be -- we're looking forward to it."

    TRENDS:


    * Yankees are 0-5 in their last 5 playoff road games.
    * Indians are 6-0 in their last 6 Divisional Playoff home games.
    * Indians are 8-1 in their last 9 home games vs. a left-handed starter.
    * Under is 9-3 in Sabathia's last 12 road starts.
    * Under is 6-1 in Kluber's last 7 home starts.
    * Indians are 6-0 in Kluber's last 6 starts vs. Yankees.

    CONSENSUS:
    The public is leaning toward the home chalk Indians with 73 percent of the picks and Over is grabbing 65 percent of the totals wagers.
