    Armadillo: Monday's six-pack

    Six interesting first round pointspreads:

    — Kentucky -6 vs Davidson

    — Clemson -5.5 vs New Mexico State

    — Tennessee -13 vs Wright State

    — Kansas -15.5 vs Penn— Lowest spread in 1-16 game since UNC-Vermont in 2012.

    — Seton Hall -2 vs NC State

    — Michigan -11.5 vs Montana


    **********

    Armadillo: Monday's List of 13: Initial thoughts on the field of 68

    13) When I first saw the brackets, it upset me that USC was left out; they’re a very good team and surely deserved to get in, right? Same with Oklahoma State and to a lesser extent, Louisville.

    Then I read something Pat Forde of Yahoo! Sports posted on Twitter:

    “Louisville out. USC out. Oklahoma State out. What do they have in common? Part of the federal investigation of college hoops.”

    That actually made me feel better, that there was a reason those teams got left out, but still don’t think Syracuse belonged in, but they are in, so we move on despite that.

    12) Turns out Davidson’s win over Rhode Island knocked Notre Dame out of the field of 68.

    11) Middle Tennessee State won Conference USA, the #12 league in country, but lost in their conference tournament; the Blue Raiders played #13 non-conference schedule in the country, losing to USC by 5, Miami by 3- they beat Vandy, Ole Miss, Murray State, but they get left home.

    10) Texas Southern deserves special mention; coached by Mike Davis, who replaced Bob Knight at Indiana, the Tigers won the SWAC tourney, after starting this season 0-13.

    In November/December, Texas Southern played guarantee games at:
    Gonzaga-Ohio St-Syracuse-Kansas-Clemson-Oregon-Baylor-Wyoming-TCU-BYU

    Texas Southern may not be a great team, but their players probably pack really well, and their accountants are really happy, because all those guarantee games pay a lot of bills.

    9) Something to ponder when the Sweet 16 rolls around: looking back over the last 12 NCAA tournaments, the eventual national champ went 21-3 vs spread on the first weekend, so look for teams who were impressive on the first weekend to maintain that momentum.

    8) Since 2006, 46 of 52 #1-seeds got to the Sweet 16, so if you’re filling out a bracket and are tempted to predict an early out for a #1 seed, please don’t do it. For your own good.

    7) Last three years, #1-seeds are 7-5 vs spread in the first round.
    Last four years, #2-seeds are 9-7 vs spread in the first round.
    Last three years, #3-seeds are 4-8 vs spread in the first round.

    6) Penn is a 16-seed, the first time since at least 2002 the Ivy League champ is a 16-seed; they were a 15-seed only once in last 15 tournaments, back in ’06.

    Over the last eight years, Ivy League teams are 7-1 vs spread in NCAA first round games.

    5) Since 2003, only 8 of 60 Final Four teams lost their first conference tourney game: Here are those teams:

    2003— Marquette, Texas
    2005— Michigan State
    2007— UCLA
    2009— UConn
    2010— Michigan State (only team to do it twice)
    2016— Syracuse
    2017— South Carolina

    4) Over the last 15 years, of the 60 teams who made the Final Four, 26 won their conference tournament. Over last six years, only 7 of 24 Final Four teams won their conference tourney; from 2004-11, 19 of 32 Final Four teams did.

    7 of the last 15 national champs won their conference tourney, but only one of the last six.

    3) Since the NCAA tournament went to 64, and then 68 teams, #2 seeds are 124-8 in their first round tournament games; here are the eight #2 seeds who lost in the first round:

    1990— Richmond (+9) 73, Syracuse 69
    1993— Santa Clara (+20) 64, Arizona 61
    1997— Coppin State (+17) 78, South Carolina 65
    2001— Hampton (+17.5) 58, Iowa State 57
    2012— Lehigh (+12) 75, Duke 70
    2012— Norfolk State (+21.5) 86, Missouri 84
    2013— Florida Gulf Coast (+13.5) 78, Georgetown 68
    2016— Middle Tennessee State (+18) 90, Michigan State 81

    2) First Four point spreads for Tuesday/Wednesday games:

    Tuesday: Radford -3.5 vs LIU; UCLA -3 vs St Bonaventure
    Wednesday: Texas Southern -4.5 vs NC Central; Arizona State -1 vs Syracuse

    1— Must be nice to have lot of money: Michigan State’s basketball team spent couple of days in Chicago last week, practiced in the Chicago Bulls’ practice facility, just to get away from campus.

    Big 14 teams have extra time to prepare for the NCAA’s this year, because the Big 14 tournament was a week earlier than usual. Lot of people think the layoff will make those teams fresher.

    NHL Betting Cheat Sheet and Odds: Lightning continue to electrify the Eastern Conference

    The Tampa Bay Lightning boast +400 odds to win their second Stanley Cup championship after becoming the first team to reach the 100-point plateau on the season.

    The Tampa Bay Lightning are the first team in the league to reach 100 points on the season and will face their expansion cousins, the Ottawa Senators this week. Covers dangles at the hash and goes bar down to give NHL bettors a breakdown of what to watch for this week on the ice.

    40-40 Showdown

    The NHL's top two goal-scorers meet Monday night in the U.S. capital as Patrik Laine and the Winnipeg Jets visit Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals. Laine and Ovechkin come into the week deadlocked at 40 goals apiece, and both players have 14 games remaining in the regular season. It's also a pivotal game for both teams with regard to their respective playoff races. The Capitals enter the night just one point behind the Metropolitan Division-leading Pittsburgh Penguins, but have two games in hand. Winnipeg is looking to close a seven-point gap between themselves and Central-leading Nashville, whom they'll face Tuesday.

    Simply the Best

    The Tampa Bay Lightning remain the team to beat in oddsmakers' eyes as they set their sights on securing the best record in the Eastern Conference. The Lightning carry a five-game winning streak - and a six-point advantage over the runner-up Boston Bruins - into Tuesday's encounter with their 1992 expansion cousins, the Ottawa Senators. The Lightning boast +400 odds on Bet365 to win their second Stanley Cup championship after becoming the first team to reach the 100-point plateau with a 3-2 shootout win over Montreal on Saturday. Ottawa finds itself at the other end of the standings, 43 points behind Tampa Bay entering Monday.

    Devils Visit Sin City

    It's a match made in Vegas as the New Jersey Devils make their first-ever visit to Nevada on Wednesday for a date with the continually surprising Golden Knights. New Jersey enters the week as one of the top Under plays in the league, having gone below the number in seven of their previous eight games. Vegas is also trending in that direction with six Unders in its previous seven games - and has the upper hand on the visitors by virtue of a 3-2 victory in Newark last week. The expansion Golden Knights remain a strong play in Stanley Cup futures, installed at +800 to win the championship.

    Player News

    * Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin is now No. 5 on the all-time scoring list among Russian-born players, passing Pavel Datsyuk over the weekend. Malkin has a point in 18 of his past 20 games; the Penguins are 14-5-1 SU over that span.

    * The New York Islanders surrendered 50 or more shots for the league-leading sixth time over the weekend, but escaped with a victory over the host Calgary Flames. Surprisingly, the Islanders are an impressive 3-2-1 SU in those games.

    Injury Updates

    * The Flames have activated No. 1 netminder Mike Smith from injured reserve after he sat out 13 games with a groin injury. The Flames went 5-6-2 in his absence, then dropped a 5-2 decision in his return Sunday night against the Islanders.

    * The Bruins' banged-up forward corps received more bad news over the weekend after Brad Marchand was held out of Sunday's game against Chicago with an upper-body injury. Marchand is questionable for Tuesday's road encounter with Carolina.

    Stanley Cup Futures

    * The Nashville Predators' double-digit winning streak might be over, but their chances of winning their first-ever Stanley Cup title are alive and thriving. Nashville has moved all the way up to +450 on Bet365 - their strongest odds of the season.

    * The Florida Panthers have been one of the hottest teams in the league over the past several weeks, and might be a sneaky underdog play entering the postseason. The Panthers enter the week at +2,800 to secure their first-ever championship.

    Betting Trends

    * The league's top teams are asserting their dominance more than at any point in the season, with favourites having won at a 73.9-percent clip over the past seven days. That moves the favourites' conversion rate to 59.4 percent for the season.

    * The Under has been the stronger play over the past week of games, coming through 27 times compared to 21 Overs in that same span. The season totals remain frighteningly close, with 519 unders against 515 overs.
