    Armadillo: Friday's six-pack

    — Phil Mickelson shot a 60, leads the Desert Classic by three strokes.

    — Seahawks signed QB Paxton Lynch to back up Russell Wilson.

    — Bronx signed reliever Adam Ottavino to a 3-year, $27M deal.

    — Diamondbacks signed utility guy Wilmer Flores to a 1-year deal.

    — Texas QB Shane Buechele is transferring from the Longhorns’ program.

    — TCU G Jaylen Fisher is leaving the Horned Frogs’ program, their 4th transfer this season.


    **********

    Armadillo: Friday's List of 13: Random stuff with weekend here…….

    13) Not that I’m paranoid or anything, but since 2012, Rams are 0-8 (0-2 this year) when Bill Vinovich’s crew referees their games (Saints are 5-3).

    Vinovich is a good official (he’s also done the Final Four in college hoop) but would it kill the NFL to send him to the AFC game?

    12) Those who don’t study history are doomed to repeat it: FOX signed Urban Meyer to be a college football analyst next season.

    Meyer was an analyst on ESPN for a year before he went to Ohio State, and he was incapable of humor or laughter- I actually felt bad for the guy. We’ll see next fall if he’s lightened up at all.

    11) Thursday night’s college hoop upsets:
    — FIU (+12.5) 77, Western Kentucky 76
    — Manhattan (+6) 58, St Peter’s 56
    — Oregon (+4.5) 59, Arizona 54

    10) Bill Belichick’s first NFL coaching job (assistant special teams coach) was with the Detroit Lions, in 1976; Also on that staff? Jerry Glanville, who went on to coach the Oilers/Falcons, one of the all-time great characters. Hard to imagine both of those guys in the same meeting.

    Belichick was a special assistant with the ’75 Colts, but technically was not a member of the coaching staff.

    9) For some reason, I became curious about this yesterday, so I looked it up. Last year, the average WNBA salary was $71,635, and this year will be closer to $75,000. The maximum veteran salary is $113,500.

    8) Reason why VCU is a better college basketball job than most mid-majors: Rams have had 126 consecutive sellouts at home. Basketball is sports priority #1 at VCU, by far.

    7) Sounds like Cam Newton has a chance to miss all of 2019 with shoulder issues, much like Andrew Luck missed all of 2017. If so, where do the Panthers turn for a new QB?

    6) Former Alabama QB Jalen Hurts is taking his 26-2 record as a starting QB to Oklahoma, which should prove to be very interesting.

    5) Once Oklahoma signed up Hurts, they released backup QB Austin Kendall, who quickly bolted to West Virginia, where he will play against the Sooners next year.

    4) Speaking of Alabama’s football team, five of their assistant coaches from this past season have already found new jobs; was reading an article during bowl season- pro scouts were saying that this was Saban’s worst coaching staff in his many years with the Crimson Tide, so you wonder if guys jumped ship or got pushed overboard?

    3) Jets’ DC Gregg Williams is now working for his ninth NFL team; he could write one hell of a book someday.

    2) Michigan Wolverines offered a college scholarship to a 7th grade QB in Michigan, which is highly unusual and even a little weird. What are the odds that Jim Harbaugh is still coaching there when the kid graduates from high school, five years from now?

    1) Cincinnati basketball coach Mick Cronin got tossed from a game Tuesday when his team was winning; not sure I’ve ever seen that before. AAC had a rough week with its refs; Tulsa/UConn game the next night saw both head coaches get tossed at the same time, even stranger.

    Battle of Alberta highlights this weekend's NHL odds and analysis
    Monty Andrews

    The Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers are well apart in the standings, but it's been a long time since the Flames tasted victory in enemy territory. The latest chapter in the Battle of Alberta highlights this weekend's NHL slate, which includes a Vegas Golden Knights team looking to improve its puck luck against Pittsburgh, and the Arizona Coyotes looking to continue a bizarre trend in Toronto. Here are the top matchups and betting trends to monitor as we enter a fun-filled weekend on NHL ice:

    Who Needs Rest?

    Certainly not the surprising New York Islanders, who will face the host Washington Capitals on Friday – one night after cruising to a 4-1 win over the New Jersey Devils at Barclays Center. The Islanders have been the best team in the NHL this season when it comes to playing on the tail end of a back-to-back, having gone 6-0 SU entering Friday night's showdown with the Capitals. And it gets better: The Islanders have outscored the opposition by a combined score of 25-6 in those games despite surrendering 35.5 shots per game in that span and being outshot by an average of nine shots per contest.
    Advantage: Oilers

    The Calgary Flames are one of only three teams to have reached the 30-win plateau to date – but none of those victories have come in Edmonton. The Flames make the trip up Highway 2 this Saturday night having lost six consecutive games at Rogers Place dating back to the 2015-16 season. And the Oilers have put together some of their best defensive efforts of the past few years in those home encounters with the Flames, having limited Calgary to one or fewer goals in four of those six contests. The road team hasn't scored in the third period in four consecutive meetings between the teams.

    Unlucky in Vegas

    An incredible hot streak has made the Vegas Golden Knights a virtual lock to finish in the top-3 in the Pacific Division – but goals have been hard to come by so far this month, at least compared to the number of shots taken. The Golden Knights enter Saturday's showdown with the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins having racked up a league-high 37.1 shots per game so far in January, but they've managed just 2.71 goals per game for the month, a rate that ranks 21st out of 31 teams. Pittsburgh hasn't been nearly as unlucky, having averaged 4.29 goals in January despite ranking ninth with an average of 31.9 shots per outing.

    Home Ice Disadvantage

    Sunday night should hold special meaning to Toronto forward Auston Matthews as his Maple Leafs entertain his hometown team, the Arizona Coyotes. The visiting side is on a tear in the head-to-head series, having won four consecutive meetings and seven of the previous nine. And recent meetings haven't been all that close, with the last three encounters decided by three goals. As for bettors considering a player prop play on Matthews, he hasn't faced his native franchise all that often but has been mostly effective, with two goals and an assist in four career games vs. the Coyotes.

    Goalie Profile

    Semyon Varlamov, Colorado Avalanche: It has been a trying eight days for Varlamov, who has been torched for 16 goals over his previous four games to extend what has been a concerning stretch of subpar goaltending for the Avalanche. Colorado netminders Varlamov, Philipp Grubauer and Pavel Francouz have combined to past an .830 save percentage in January, the worst in the league over that span. And those struggles have spoiled a strong offensive showing by the Avalanche, who are averaging 3.57 goals in January but have just two wins to show for it. On the plus side, Colorado's 26 over conversions are the most of any Central Division team.

    Injury Update

    Ryan Kesler and Jakob Silfverberg, Anaheim Ducks:
    Even after ending a 12-game losing skid Thursday night in Minnesota, there's more bad news in Anaheim. The struggling Ducks will be without forwards Ryan Kesler and Jakob Silfverberg indefinitely as both players nurse lower-body injuries. It has been a dismal season for Kesler, who has just four goals, two assists and a minus-15 rating in 44 games with Anaheim this season; Silfverberg has been slightly better with 12 goals and seven assists in 42 games. Anaheim has been one of the most injury-riddled teams in the league, and it shows: The Ducks are at -5.66 units won on the season, good for 21st overall.

    Hat Trick Trends

    The tide has finally turned on road favorites following an incredibly lucrative month. Teams favored away from their home arenas have gone a dismal 4-9 SU over the past seven days, good for a 30.8-percent success rate. Home favorites have also cashed in less often than expected over that stretch, winning SU just 57.1 percent of the time (20-11-4).

    Bettors looking for a totals edge didn't find one this past week. The Overs and Unders have been split right down the middle over the previous seven days, with each outcome converting 24 times. The under is still king over the past 30 days, converting at a 53.9 percent clip, while the season to date has seen 349 under results compared to 343 overs.

    While totals play was a 50-50 proposition this past week, one NHL official remains a terrific Under option. Graham Skilliter has provided plenty of profit for under bettors, with his games having gone 14-25 O/U to date; his -12.84 over units won are the lowest in the NHL. Teams are averaging just 5.48 total goals in the games he has worked.
