    Armadillo: Wednesday's six-pack

    Odds to win the 2019 college basketball title:

    5-1— Duke

    8-1— Kansas, Kentucky, Villanova

    12-1— North Carolina

    15-1— Gonzaga, Michigan St, Virginia

    20-1— Michigan, Oregon

    30-1— Auburn, UCLA, West Virginia

    **********

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

    13) Rams traded 1st and 6th-round draft picks to New England Tuesday for WR Brandin Cooks and a 4th-round pick. Two things about this:

    a) I no longer have to worry about the Rams trading for Odell Beckham
    b) Rams still have eight draft picks, but only one of their original picks- four of those eight picks are in the 6th round. Their first pick right now will be the 87th selection.

    12) This means all those geniuses who do a mock draft every 36 hours get to do more of them, since the #23 pick moves to the Patriots. Still 22 days until the draft.

    11) Louisville QB Lamar Jackson is being advised by his mother instead of by an agent. No one knows what this means exactly, since the mom is a private person and hasn’t said much. Will be curious to see if an agent is hired once a team drafts him, and negotiations for a contract begin.

    One thing, for sure; Lamar Jackson is going to play QB, and only QB.

    10) This was the 4th time in last five years the college basketball national champ went 6-0 vs spread in its NCAA tournament games.

    9) This is a little hard to believe, but they said on TV Monday night that Padres’ reliever Adam Cimber is first the major leaguer ever to wear number 90.

    8) Arizona 8, Dodgers 7 (15)— This game ended at 3:26am Tuesday morning; had the game gone to the 16th inning, both teams would’ve used position players to pitch.

    7) Two pitchers have already been removed from games this season with a no-hitter going: Minnesota’s Kyle Gibson Saturday in Baltimore, Pirates’ Trevor Williams Sunday in Detroit.

    6) A’s drew only 7,416 fans for their home game with Texas Monday night, their smallest home crowd since 2003. Oy.

    A’s drew 9,157 fans last night on Free Parking Tuesday, which doesn’t seem like a big promotion until you realize they charge $30 to park a car in Oakland.

    5) There were 144 hitters last year who got enough plate appearances to qualify for the batting title; 89 of them hit 20+ home runs, which means 61.8% of hitters who qualified for the batting title hit 20+ homers. In 2014, that number was 32%.

    4) Number of times a pitcher went thru the opponent’s whole lineup three times in a game:
    2017 1,196 (39.9 per team, out of 162 games)
    2016 1,405
    2015 1,670
    2014 1,906

    Unless the guy is an ace or really rolling that night, starting pitchers aren’t allowed to go thru the lineup three times anymore.

    3) Rhode Island Rams were apparently going to hire Rick Pitino as their new basketball coach, until the school president put the kibosh on that. Now what?

    2) San Diego 3B Christian Villanueva was 0-4 for the season before Tuesday; he hit three homers for the Padres last night in their win over Colorado.

    1— Brewers 5, Cardinals 4— Christian Yelich tied game with a dramatic two-out HR in the 9th, then Ryan Braun won it with a walk-off tater.

    This was the first game in MLB history where the first two batters of the game homered, and also the last two.

    Injury of Note

    The Celtics are lifting up the couch cushions looking for point guards at this point. They started somebody called Kadeem Allen – who had played 39 minutes in the NBA before Tuesday – last night against the Milwaukee Bucks because their four primary ball handlers were all out.

    Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart are on the long-term injury shelf while Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin are questionable to play on Wednesday against the Raptors. The Celtics are 7.5-point underdogs at Toronto tonight.

    NBA Game of the Day: Celtics at Raptors betting preview and odds

    Boston Celtics at Toronto Raptors (-7.5, 205)

    The race for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference intensifies Wednesday when the first-place Toronto Raptors host the Boston Celtics. Both teams lost games Tuesday night, leaving them separated by two games with five to play, including this final encounter of the season series that will also determine the tiebreaker between the two teams.

    The Raptors have lost two in a row for the first time since mid-January and five of eight overall as they navigate a run of difficult opponents. "It's good for us," Raptors coach Dwane Casey said Tuesday. "Last year we were playing against some teams that were so-called rebuilding and we were winning by 15-20 points. It did not get us ready for the playoffs. These games, playing against a good team like Cleveland, a good team like Boston will help us get ready, harden us, showing some things we need to be better in." The Celtics saw their six-game winning streak snapped with a 106-102 loss at Milwaukee while operating with a limited roster as physical issues continue to pile up. Already without guards Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart, Boston chose to sit Terry Rozier (ankle) and Shane Larkin (illness) against the Bucks, giving G League player Kadeem Allen an unexpected start.

    TV:
    8 p.m. ET, ESPN, NBCS Boston, TSN 4/5 (Toronto)

    LINE HISTORY:
    The Raptors opened as 8-point home favorites for this crucial Eastern Conference battle and by Wednesday afternoon that number was down to -7.5. The total hit betting boards at 206.5 and has been bet down slightly to 205.

    INJURY REPORT:


    Celtics - PG T. Rozier (Questionable, Ankle), PG S. Larkin (Questionable, Illness), PG K. Irving (Early May, Knee), PG M. Smart (Mid May, Thumb), PF D. Theis (Out For Season, Knee), SF G. Hayward (Out For Season, Ankle).

    Raptors - No injuries to report.

    POWER RANKINGS:
    Celtics (-7.2) - Raptors (-11) - Home Court (-3.0) = Raptors -6.8

    MATCHUP CHART:




    ABOUT THE CELTICS (53-24 SU, 48-27-2 ATS, 39-37-1 O/U):
    Irving is recovering from knee surgery and coach Brad Stevens said postgame that Tuesday's team - plus Rozier and Larkin - would constitute the team's active roster when the playoffs begin, eliminating any chance that Irving returns to begin the postseason. Jaylen Brown scored 24 points on Tuesday and the second-year pro has produced at least 19 in three of five games since returning from a concussion. Rookie Jayson Tatum, who had 24 points in the 110-99 win over Toronto at home on Saturday, added 20 versus the Bucks and is averaging 20.8 over his last four contests.

    ABOUT THE RAPTORS (55-22 SU, 40-37 ATS, 39-37-1 O/U):
    Kyle Lowry was limited to five points on 2-of-11 shooting in Tuesday's loss and the All-Star is 6-for-24 over the last two games. "I played terrible," Lowry - who traveled to San Antonio on Monday to watch his alma mater Villanova claim the NCAA championship - told reporters. "Just a bad game overall for me. I'll take the 'L' on me." DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors with 19 points after scoring 32 to go along with seven assists and seven rebounds in the loss at Boston.

    TRENDS:


    * Celtics are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.
    * Raptors are 0-9 ATS in their last 9 games overall.
    * Under is 5-0 in Celtics last 5 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
    * Over is 6-0 in Raptors last 6 games playing on 0 days rest.
    * Celtics are 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Toronto.

    CONSENSUS:
    62 percent of bettors are on the underdog Celtics while 71 percent of bettors are on the Over.
