    Armadillo:Saturday's six-pack

    Biggest upsets in NFL Wild Card round, last 15 years:

    — Titans (+9) 22-21 @ KC, 2018

    — Chargers (+8) 27-10 @ Cin, 2013

    — Broncos (+8) 29-23 vs Pitt, 2011

    — Vikings (+6.5) 31-17 @ GB, 2004

    — Jets (+6.5) 20-17 OT @ SD, 2004

    — Falcons (+6) 26-13 @ LA, 2018


    **********

    Armadillo: Saturday's List of 13: Clearing out a cluttered mind…….

    13) If you’re up late at night and love college basketball, FS1, ESPNU and AT&T Sportsnet (#684 on DirecTV) are your channels to watch- they generally show replays of games all night long.

    12) Speaking of late night TV, one of the most underrated basketball movies was on after the UCLA game Thursday night— He Got Game, with Denzel Washington, Ned Beatty, Ray Allen in a movie about a big time college prospect whose father is in prison, but the warden promises to pardon him if he can talk his son into going to college at the governor’s alma mater.

    Outstanding movie that is 20 years old now, but lot of it still resonates today.

    11) Pac-12’s basketball season is on a fast track to the ashcan;
    — Arizona State beat Kansas, then lost consecutive home games to Princeton/Utah.
    — UCLA already fired its coach, despite Bruins making Sweet 16 three of last five years.
    — Oregon’s best player Bol Bol is out for year, and those are the better teams in the league.

    10) Steve Alford’s son Kory is still on UCLA’s staff as the video coordinator; that has to be at least a little awkward.

    Am I the only person who finds it odd that the guy who replaced Alford as UCLA’s coach (Murry Bartow) is the son of the guy who replaced John Wooden as UCLA’s coach (Gene Bartow)?

    9) Last 6 years: defending Super Bowl champ missed playoffs the next year three times. Other three teams won their first playoff game the next year, by 14-7-21 points.

    8) College football stuff:
    — West Virginia hired Troy coach Neal Brown (35-16 at Troy) as its new coach.
    — QB Justin Fields transferred from Georgia to Ohio State.
    — Oklahoma hired Alex Grinch as its new DC; hopefully they won’t have to play any games on Christmas the next few years.

    7) Patrick Mahomes might be the NFL’s MVP this year, but he makes less than $2M a year, and by rule, he cannot re-negotiate his contract until 2020. Great value for the Chiefs for the next couple years.

    6) Knicks 119, Lakers 112— Lonzo Ball is shooting xx.x% on the foul line this year; how does that happen? Lonzo shot 67.3% from the line in his one year at UCLA, then shot 45.1% on line with the Lakers LY and now xx.x this year. He needs a sports psychiatrist.

    5) Pacers 119, Bulls 116, OT— Victor Oladipo banked in a straight-away 3-pointer with 0:00.3 left for the win, as Zach LaVine’s tying 3-ball was ruled to have come after the buzzer. Pacers are very quietly 26-12 and are the #3 seed in the East right now.

    4) Nets 109, Grizzlies 100— Brooklyn won 11 of its last 14 games, is only half-game out of the last playoff spot in the East.

    3) Penn State hoop coach Patrick Chambers has been suspended for Sunday’s game against Wisconsin for pushing one of his players during a timeout in Thursday’s loss to Michigan. it probably looked a lot worse than it was, but in today’s softer era, it didn’t look good.

    2) Friday, someone at Monmouth Park in New Jersey wagered $275,000 to win $250,000 on the Cowboys to cover as 2-point favorites vs Seattle Saturday night. Yikes.

    1) When you’re retired and can do anything you damn well please, one of the most important things to master is time management. If you’re not careful, it becomes easy to waste time.

    There is an old saying: “We won’t all run out of money, but we’ll all run out of time.”

    I enjoy exploring the Interweb, but where should I focus? There is an almost infinite amount of material on here, but lot of it is nonsense, so have to narrow things down and focus on that.

    Hopefully you do the same, and don’t consider this site nonsense.

    How high can Bolts-Sharks total climb, and this week's NHL predictions and picks

    The NHL has a packed slate of games this weekend, headlined by a clash between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the San Jose Sharks Saturday night. We’re diving into all the action on the ice with some key NHL betting notes for the next three days.

    THE PENS ARE MIGHTIER...

    After a bumpy start to the 2018-19 season, the Pittsburgh Penguins are in familiar form as the New Year gets rolling. The Penguins picked up their seventh straight victory with a dominating 7-2 blasting of the New York Rangers at MSG Wednesday. Pittsburgh has netted 28 total goals in this span – an average of more than three per game – but it’s been the defense that’s really propelling this surge.

    The Pens have allowed two or fewer goals in each of those seven victories, entering Friday’s home stand against the Winnipeg Jets. The Jets have stumbled a bit in recent outings, posting a 3-3 mark in their last six contests. Winnipeg has been inconsistent on offense, scoring just one goal in each of those six games, and top defenseman and special teams weapon Dustin Byfuglien is sidelined with a lower-body injury. That could keep scores down for a Jets team that leans on the power play to produce points, and give value to the Under 6.5 for this Friday night tussle.
    LUCKY NO. 7?

    Two of the top-scoring teams in the NHL will put on a show in San Jose Saturday, when the Tampa Bay Lightning take on the Sharks. These clubs enter this matchup ranked No. 1 and No. 6 in goals per game on the season respectively, and San Jose has turned up the intensity in recent efforts, potting 21 total goals in its last four outings.

    Oddsmakers will set the bar for this total at 6.5 goals but could we see the Over/Under creep to seven? At the very least the Over will be extremely juiced, with San Jose entering this game on a 4-0-1 Over/Under run and Tampa Bay topping the total in seven of its last eight games – including going Over 6.5 goals in five of those contests. These teams have also gone Over the betting total in 12 of their past 15 head-to-head meetings.

    BETTING BOWL

    In a game that will draw a ton of NHL betting action – but from two separate sides of the country (and likely on separate teams) - the New Jersey Devils roll into Sin City to face the Vegas Golden Knights Sunday. Of course, New Jersey and Nevada are the two states atop the legal sports betting markets in the U.S. since the Garden State won its court battle last spring.

    Vegas books are slammed with action on the Golden Knights in every home game, with bettors not only grabbing the inflated moneyline price but also jumping on Vegas -1.5 on the puckline. Those sportsbook operators with spots in both Nevada and Jersey should be able to balance some of that liability with money on the Devils coming in on the East Coast.

    New Jersey has played Vegas tough in their limited meetings. They split their two encounters last year – losing 3-2 at home but winning 8-3 in Las Vegas – and recently knocked off the Knights as hosts on December 14, winning 5-4 in overtime as +122 home pups. One note though: the Devils will have a day off in Vegas Saturday before playing the Knights – just enough time for that infamous “Flu” to set in.

    GOALIE PROFILE

    Collin Delia, Chicago Blackhawks: The Blackhawks' young call-up is playing some incredible hockey since joining the big club and has kept Chicago competitive each time he steps between the pipes. Delia, who has played only four games since making his 2018-19 debut on December 21, owns a 1.98 GAA and has allowed only three even-strength goals in that span.

    He boasts a save percentage of .952 despite getting peppered with shots in those recent starts. He faced 48 shots in a 5-2 win versus Minnesota on Dec. 27 and 50 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the New York Islanders Thursday, stealing a point for Chicago with a stellar performance. Going back to last season, he has just one regulation loss in six career starts for the Blackhawks.

    INJURY UPDATE

    Garret Sparks, Frederik Andersen G Toronto Maple Leafs: Goaltending injuries could derail the Maple Leafs start to 2019 with both Garret Sparks (concussion) and Frederik Anderson (IR – Groin) sidelined. That has Toronto calling up two minor league netminders for the near future, bringing in Michael Hutchinson and Kasimir Kaskisuo from the Marlies. Sparks was hit in the head with a puck in practice Wednesday and left the ice, eventually landing in concussion protocol. The Leafs don’t play until Saturday, when they host the Vancouver Canucks, and he will be re-evaluated before then.

    HAT TRICK TRENDS

    • Washington takes on Dallas Friday night. The defending Cup champs have notoriously struggled against the Stars, going just 7-21-1 in the last 29 meetings, including a 4-11 record in their last 15 trips to Dallas. Oddsmakers have Washington as a +104 road underdog.

    • The Buffalo Sabres' strong start to the season shocked everyone – making them one of the most profitable moneyline bets in the NHL – but now it seems the club is crashing back to earth. Buffalo has lost five of its last seven games entering Saturday’s road tilt in Boston. Pouring salt on that wound is an injury to top scorer Jack Eichel, who will miss at least the next two games with an upper-body injury.

    • The New York Islanders continue to be one of the best moneyline teams in terms of returns in the NHL, thanks to their strong play on the road. The Isles have won six of their last seven away from home and sit 12-8-1 as visitors on the season, stacking +8.48 units for those taking their road moneyline price. New York is short road underdog at St. Louis Saturday.
