    Armadillo: Friday's six-pack

    Nevada casinos’ profits for 2018:

    — Sports betting: $301M

    — Roulette: $386.1M

    — Craps: $386.4M

    — Blackjack: $1.1B

    — Baccarat: $1.2B

    — Penny slots: $3.3B


    **********

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

    13) New York Knicks traded Kristaps Porzingis to Dallas Thursday, in a surprising trade that results in New York having around $75M in cap space this summer, when the following players will be free agents:

    Durant, Irving, Klay Thompson, Kemba Walker, Cousins, Jimmy Butler.

    Knicks would conceivably have room for two max contract players, but the question is this: Who the hell wants to play for one of the most dysfunctional franchises in sports?

    12) Knicks sent Porzingis, Courtney Lee, Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr to Dallas for DeAndre Jordan, Dennis Smith, Wesley Matthews and two first round picks.

    11) Mark Cuban has seen the light; he has Luca Doncic and Porzingis now, following in the footsteps of Dirk Nowitzki. He still has to get Porzingis to commit longterm to the Mavericks.

    Cuban isn’t fond of the grassroots basketball system in this country and believes that kids from other countries, generally speaking, work harder and are more coachable.

    Look at the Spurs; during their run of five NBA titles, they often had a majority of foreign players on their roster.

    10) There are only two D-I college basketball teams with two players averaging 20+ points/game this season; Duke and………Cal State-Northridge.

    Duke: RJ Barrett 23.9 ppg, Zion Williamson 21.7
    Northridge: Lamine Diane 23.5 ppg, Terrell Gomez 20.1

    Three of those four players are freshmen.

    9) Mississippi State DT Jeffrey Simmons won’t be invited to the NFL Combine, even though he is a projected top 10 pick in the draft. Simmons doesn’t meet the criteria under the NFL’s policy about past issues involving violence; he was seen on video in 2016 striking a woman.

    8) Sacramento Kings won their last five home games, first time they’ve done that since 2008.

    7) Twitter can be a lot of fun when people aren’t so serious; someone posted a quiz the other night on which movie people preferred, Forrest Gump or Road House? Reading the various responses made me laugh for a while.

    I chose Road House, by the way, even though Tom Hanks was a soda vendor at the Oakland A’s games in the Coliseum when he was 14 years old, back in the early 70’s.

    6) Hofstra of the CAA has college basketball’s longest current win streak, winning their last 16 games.

    5) Is Kevin Garnett the Bobby Bonilla of the NBA? Garnett is still making money from his Celtics contract, banking $5M a year until 2024.

    4) You know your college is having a cruddy sports year when NCAA puts your school’s girls’ softball team on probation.

    Missouri’s football, baseball, softball teams all were fingered by the NCAA, which put the athletics department on three years of probation as a result of academic fraud.

    3) Nolan Arenado and the Colorado Rockies agreed on a one-year, $26M contract as he begins what is likely his last year with the Rockies. Arenado will be a highly sought after free agent next winter.

    2) Arizona State 95, Arizona 88 OT— Bad beat if you had the Wildcats +5.5; ASU get its first win in last seven tries against its in-state conference rival.

    1) Georgetown 80, Xavier 73— James Akinjo scored 23 points for the Hoyas, all after halftime.

    High-flying Bolts vs stout Islanders highlights this weekend's NHL odds and analysis
    Monty Andrews

    The Lightning have been the class of the NHL for the majority of the season, leading the league in points thanks in large part to an absurd 3.96 goals-per-game average.

    With a host of teams coming off their bye, the next three days will feature a ton of hockey – and bettors, we have you covered. This weekend's schedule includes the offensively-gifted Lightning facing the hottest goaltending tandem in the league, Phil Kessel looking to finally make an impact against one of his former teams, and the Carolina Hurricanes starting to see their puck luck turn around. Here are the top games, trends and tips for the next three days of puck action:

    Offense vs. Defense

    The highest-scoring team in the NHL visits the best defensive club in the league when the Tampa Bay Lightning take on the host New York Islanders on Friday night. The Lightning have been the class of the NHL for the majority of the season, leading the league in points thanks in large part to an absurd 3.96 goals-per-game average. But that offensive prowess will be put to the test Friday against an Islanders goaltending duo of Robin Lehner and Thomas Greiss that is limiting opponents to a league-low 2.41 goals per contest. Totals bettors take heed: the Isles are 21-6-1 to the under in their past 28 games overall.

    Not-so-Special Teams

    The Buffalo Sabres can only hope that flipping the calendar to February will put an end to their demoralizing special teams woes. The Sabres enter Friday's showdown with the visiting Chicago Blackhawks owning the dubious distinction of ranking last in the league in power-play success rate (four percent) and 30th out of 31 teams on the penalty kill (71.4 percent). It's no surprise, then, that Buffalo enters the end of the week having lost nine of 13 to fall to seventh overall in units won (5.13). Chicago comes in with the league's No. 1 power play for the month, having converted 40 percent of its chances.

    Ready for a Kessel Run?

    Phil Kessel was a polarizing figure during his time in Toronto, but the lovable winger hasn't made nearly the same impact when facing the Maple Leafs in his career. Kessel looks to improve on a dreadful showing vs. Toronto as he and the Pittsburgh Penguins head to Scotiabank Arena for a Saturday night encounter with the Leafs. Bettors considering a player prop might want to steer clear of Kessel, who has just nine goals and five assists in 29 career games against Toronto. He could learn a thing or two from teammate Evgeni Malkin, who has racked up 62 points in 37 games against the Leafs.

    Hurricane Relief

    The Carolina Hurricanes are finally reaping the benefits of their shot-heavy approach – though they wouldn't mind a little more luck at the other end of the ice. The Hurricanes welcome the Calgary Flames to Raleigh on Sunday having averaged a robust 3.83 goals per game in January – more than a goal higher than their season rate (2.78), which ranks among the lowest in the league despite the Hurricanes leading the league in shots per game at 35.8. Unfortunately, they've surrendered 3.33 goals per contest in January despite limiting opponents to 27.9 shots over the month. The over is a strong option in this one.

    Goalie Profile

    Carey Price, Montreal Canadiens: Is Carey Price all the way back? It's impossible to say, but it's certainly encouraging that he was one of the top netminders in the league in January. The much-maligned netminder posted a 5-3-0 mark with a 1.52 goals-against average, a .953 save percentage and two shutouts for the month, and is a significant reason why the Canadiens have cashed the under in 11 of their previous 12 games overall. Montreal resumes its schedule with four games in a six-night span against New Jersey, Edmonton, Anaheim and Winnipeg; the Canadiens went above the total in their previous game against all four teams.

    Injury Update

    Shayne Gostisbehere, Philadelphia Flyers: The Flyers have made progress in their Herculean quest to rally for a postseason spot – and they're doing it without the services of their top offensive defenseman. Shayne Gostisbehere missed his third consecutive game Thursday with a lower-body injury, and it isn't known when he'll be able to return to action. Gostisbehere leads all Flyers blue-liners in points with 20, and while his minus-12 rating is among the worst on the team, Philadelphia is an impressive 9-3-2 SU in games in which "Ghost Bear" earns at least one point. The Flyers enter the weekend having won a season-best six in a row.

    Hat Trick Trends

    Unders have a slight edge in January heading into the final day of the month, having converted at a 51.6-percent clip over the previous 30 days worth of games. Strangely, overtime games in January have fallen below the total (14) more often than they've finished above it (12). Unders have a 372-364 edge on the overs as of Thursday.

    January has also been a strong month for the underdogs, particularly those playing at home. The previous 30 days have seen home 'dogs prevail at a 49-percent rate, well above its 45.6-percent win clip for the season. Underdogs overall have won 46.9 percent of games SU in January, raising the season-to-date average to 43.5 percent.

    MmmBop! There's never a bad time for a 90s music reference, and this one is of particular interest to totals bettors. Veteran official Trevor Hanson has provided the best return on investment for over players, earning a whopping 11.06 units thanks to an incredible 30-18-2 O/U record. Teams are averaging nearly 6.5 combined goals in the 50 games he has worked.
