    Armadillo: Friday's six-pack

    More early over/under baseball totals for 2019:

    — St Louis Cardinals, Washington Nationals 88.5

    — Tampa Bay Rays 85.5

    — Atlanta Braves, Minnesota Twins 84

    — Brewers, Angels, Mets 83.5

    — Oakland A’s, Philadelphia Phillies 83

    — Colorado Rockies 82


    **********

    Armadillo: Friday's List of 13: Basketball notes from this week……

    13) Marquette 106, Creighton 104 OT— Bluejays totally butchered game management at end of regulation; they had ball out of bounds with 0:00.8 left, up 3 points- they throw the ball the length of the court, but it goes out of bounds without being touched, then Marquette drains a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer to force OT.

    All they had to do was flip the ball to a Marquette player inside the arc and the game was over, but thats not what happened.

    Marquette’s Markus Howard scored 53 points, most ever in a Big East game; he nailed 10-14 treys, 13-15 on foul line. Horrific home loss for Creighton.

    12) Virginia Tech 52, Georgia Tech 49— Look at this score, then you remember that Markus Howard scored 53 by himself at Creighton. Different styles of play, for sure.

    11) UCLA 87, Oregon 84 OT— Staggering collapse by the Ducks, who led 76-68 with 0:44 left in regulation- it was 72-59 with 2:30 left. Bruins are 3-0 under interim coach Murry Bartow.

    10) Villanova 76, St John’s 71— Red Storm led by 13 early, by 5 with 3:48 left, but faded badly down stretch and lost for second time in four Big East games. Villanova ended the game on a decisive 14-4 run.

    Sign of times; there were 67 3-pointers taken in this game, 48 2-pointers, 30 foul shots. Red Storm basically played only six guys (a 7th guy played 5:00). 67 possessions; slow tempo, lot of jump shots late in the shot clock.

    9) Hofstra 93, William & Mary 90, 3OT—Visiting Pride led by 10 at the half, survived in triple OT— four Hofstra kids played 42:00+, with Wright-Foreman playing whole 55:00. Four guys on W&M played 44:00.

    Bad beat of the night: Northeastern (-9) won/covered 81-70 at Elon, but in OT. If you have the underdog +9 and the game goes overtime, you’re supposed to win.

    8) ESPN has obviously told his game analysts to hype up Zion Williamson at every chance, the way they did with Trey Young LY and Ben Simmons the year he was at LSU.

    Williamson doesn’t need the hype, he is really good, but ESPN has this new thing where they seem to choose one player a year and they hype him up so much that you wind up rooting against him.

    7) Warriors 122, Knicks 95— Klay Thompson scored 43 points for the Warriors Tuesday, on 29 shots. On the 29 touches where he shot, Thompson dribbled a total of four times. Four.

    6) Pitt 89, Louisville 86 OT— Panthers end a 23-game ACC regular season losing streak. Jeff Capel has Pitt heading in the right direction, and he’s done it quickly.

    5) Eastern Michigan 84, Ball State 82, 2OT— Ball’s Trey Moses had 16 points, 10 assists, but he was 4-15 on the foul line in a game the Cardinals led by 3 in the last minute of regulation. Tough way to lose; Ball State was 15-30 on foul line in a 2-point loss.

    4) Ole Miss 82, Auburn 67— Rebels outscored Auburn 27-9 on foul line, never trailed in moving to 12-2 under new coach Kermit Davis, who built a mid-major power at Middle Tennessee the last few years.

    3) Quinnipiac 89, Monmouth 83, 2OT— Bobcats led 63-49 with 1:36 to play, blew the lead, as Monmouth somehow scored 34 points in last 11:36 of this game, but still lost. Quinnipiac was -8 (22-14) in turnovers, but still got the win.

    2) Kansas State 71, West Virginia 69— Wildcats trailed 20-3 early, by 21 with 17:46 left, but rallied to hand the Mountaineers their third straight Big X loss. West Virginia is 0-3 in its conference for first time since an 0-6 start in the ’02 Big East.

    1) There were 32 games in the Las Vegas rotation Wednesday night; in 8 of the 32 games, the team that lost had a lead of 10+ points at some point in the game; five of those teams led by 14+ points at one point. Lot of runs/droughts in college games these days.

    Friday's Big Ten Tips
    David Schwab

    The betting board for this Friday night’s action in college basketball is on the lighter side, but FOX Sports 1 has dialed up an interesting doubleheader of games in the Big Ten.

    First off at 7:00 p.m. ET, No. 22 Indiana will be on the road against Maryland in College Park. In a 9:00 p.m. ET tip at the Kohl Center in Madison, Wisconsin will play host to Purdue.

    No. 22 Indiana Hoosiers at Maryland Terrapins (FOX Sports 1, 7:00 p.m. ET)

    Opening Odds: Maryland -5, Total 142 ½


    Betting Matchup

    Indiana is one of four Big Ten teams ranked in the current AP Top 25, but it will most likely need a win on Friday to remain on the list. The Hoosiers’ recent straight-up seven-game winning streak came to an end last Sunday in a 74-63 loss to Michigan as nine-point road underdogs. They are 1-3 against the spread on the road this season as part of a 7-8 record against the closing number overall.

    The total went OVER 131 points against the Wolverines, but it has stayed UNDER in 10 of 15 games this year. Freshman guard Romeo Langford scored 17 points in Sunday’s loss after putting up 28 his previous game against Illinois.

    The Terrapins could slip into the national rankings by winning this game after winning their last four outings SU with a 3-1 mark ATS. Three of the wins were against conference foes including Tuesday’s 82-67 road upset against Minnesota as two-point underdogs.

    Maryland is 13-3 SU overall with a 9-7 record ATS. The total has gone OVER in its last six games. Junior guard Anthony Cowan Jr. has been this team’s leading scorer with 17.2 points per game and, with 27 points against Minnesota, he has exceeded that average in two of his last three starts.

    Betting Trends

    -- The Hoosiers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven Friday games and they are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games following a SU loss. The total has stayed UNDER or ended as a PUSH in 10 of their last 12 road games.

    -- The Terrapins have failed to cover in 11 of their last 15 home games with a 2-5-1 record ATS in their last eight home games against a team with a SU losing record on the road. The total has gone OVER in their last four games played at home.

    -- The home team in this matchup has covered the spread in the last four meetings with the total staying UNDER in four of the last five games between the two.


    Purdue Boilermakers at Wisconsin Badgers (FOX Sports 1, 9:00 p.m. ET)

    Opening Odds: Wisconsin -4 ½, Total 136 ½


    Betting Matchup

    Purdue opened Big Ten play in early December with a road loss to Michigan and a win at home against Maryland. In recent conference play, it beat Iowa by 16 points as a 9 ½-point home favorite before coming up well short on Tuesday night in a 77-59 loss to Michigan State as a seven-point underdog on the road. This roller-coaster ride is indicative of the Boilermakers’ overall record of 9-6 SU (7-7 ATS).

    They tend to win the games they are supposed to, but they have failed to cover in two of three games this season as underdogs. Led by junior guard Carsen Edwards’ 24.5-point scoring average, Purdue is scoring 77.6 PPG. He was held to 11 points in Tuesday’s loss.

    Wisconsin has been another up and down team this season at 11-4 SU with an 8-7 record ATS. Its stint in the national rankings came to an end with a stunning 83-76 loss to Western Kentucky on Dec. 29 as a 6 ½-point road favorite. The Badgers then lost to Minnesota as nine-point favorites at home before last Sunday’s 71-52 rout of Penn State as two-point road favorites.

    Wisconsin’s top scorer this season has been senior forward Ethan Happ with 19.3 PPG. With 22 points in the win against the Nittany Lions, he has put up at least 19 points in three of his last four games.

    Betting Trends

    -- The Boilermakers have gone just 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 road games and they are 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 conference games. The total has stayed UNDER in four of their last five games on the road.

    -- The Badgers are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games following a SU win, but they have failed to cover in four of their last five games against a SU winning team. The total has stayed UNDER or ended as a PUSH in 11 of their last 13 Friday games.

    -- The home team is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings and the total has stayed UNDER in the last four meetings at Wisconsin.

    Taming the Terrapins

    There has been no stopping the Maryland Terrapins, who carry a four-game winning streak into Friday's encounter with the visiting Indiana Hoosiers. Maryland has won six of seven overall while finishing above the total six consecutive times, including each of their last four home games. The Hoosiers are a dismal 1-3 SU on the road this season but have done well to limit scoring for the most part, having gone 9-2-1 to the under in their past 12 games away from Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. The teams have also finished below the number in four of their past five meetings.
    Doubling Down

    Combining the quirky with the concrete isn't always a solid approach but doing so this weekend could net bettors a nice payday as the Pittsburgh Panthers visit the N.C. State Wolfpack on Saturday. The Panthers bring two interesting trends into the weekend, having gone an incredible 10-1-1 ATS in their previous 12 games against teams with winning records and a ridiculous 23-5 to the under in their past 28 games played on a Saturday. But if you're thinking about creating a fun parlay here, be aware that the host Wolfpack are 7-2 ATS in their past nine home games.


    Reversal of Fortune?

    The Kansas Jayhawks have been a less-than-inspiring cover option this season, carrying a 7-8 ATS record into Saturday's Big 12 encounter with the host Baylor Bears. And things have been even worse away from Allen Fieldhouse; their only two losses this season have come on the road, and they're just 1-4 ATS in their past five away games overall. But the Jayhawks are in good shape to turn things around Saturday – they're 10-2 ATS in their previous 12 visits to Ferrell Center, and the road team has successfully covered in 20 of the last 28 meetings between the teams overall (with one push).


    Team News

    The Jayhawks will have to do without one of their most reliable big men, with center Udoka Azubuike undergoing season-ending surgery on his right hand. Azubuike was a force in the middle for Kansas, averaging 13.4 points and 6.8 rebounds while shooting better than 70 percent from the field. Kansas has lost two of its last three games without him.
    The Oregon Ducks are starting to feel the pressure of having to make do without sensational center Bol Bol, who will miss the remainder of the season with a foot injury. The Ducks are just 3-3 SU and 2-4 ATS with Bol on the sidelines, compared to a 6-3 SU mark and a 5-4 ATS record with Bol – one of the top prospects in the nation – in the lineup.


    National Title Odds

    Duke may have fallen to No. 2 in the coaches' poll, but the Blue Devils remain a rock-solid No. 1 option in oddsmakers' eyes. Vegas has the Zion Williamson-led powerhouse as a +150 favorite to capture the national title this spring, well ahead of the runners-up Gonzaga Bulldogs (+1,100) and Michigan Wolverines (+1,100).

    Oddsmakers still have faith in the Kentucky Wildcats despite their stunningly slow start. The Wildcats, who have dropped to No. 18 in both the coaches' poll and the Associated Press rankings, carry the seventh-best odds of winning the national championship at +1,700, sandwiched between the Tennessee Volunteers (+1,400) and Nevada Wolf Pack (+1,800).

    Looking for a good live underdog play? Consider the Iowa State Cyclones, who are listed at +10,000 to win their first NCAA title in program history. The Cyclones were the biggest movers in both polls last week, jumping six spots to 21st in the AP poll and five spots to No. 20 in the coaches' poll after trouncing Kentucky 77-60.


    Betting Trends

    Road teams have been a slightly better cover option over the past seven days, converting at a 52 percent clip (162-149-2). That has closed the overall gap for the season to the width of a betting slip, with the home team covering 1,236 times and the road team making good on 1,233 occasions (with 49 pushes).

    Totals betting has been a little more one-sided, with the under at 53.7 percent of non-overtime games, and 51.8 percent overall. And those trends have been even more pronounced over the previous 30 days, with 55.1 percent of non-overtime games and 52.9 percent of all contests finishing below the total.

    Oklahoma continues to be the top cover/under parlay option in all of Division I. The Sooners enter the weekend with a sparkling 12-1-2 ATS record to go along with a 4-11 O/U mark. And those records are even more pronounced at Lloyd Noble Center, where Oklahoma is 6-0 ATS and 0-6 O/U entering Saturday's home date with TCU.
