    Armadillo: Thursday's six-pack

    — Colorado 84, UCLA 73— Is possible both UCLA/Arizona jobs will be open soon.

    — TCU 70, Oklahoma State 68— JD Miller hit a tough runner at the buzzer for the win.

    — LSU 92, Mississippi State 88 OT— Really good game that felt like a March game.

    — Vermont 86, Maine 63— Vermont leads by a game in America East.

    — UNLV 83, Boise State 72— Rebels made 14-26 three-pointers.

    — Villanova 66, Creighton 59 OT— First meeting was 90-78; go figure. This game ended on a hoop that was well after the buzzer, but was allowed- that hoop covered the spread.


    **********

    Armadillo: Thursday's List of 13: Doing some thinking out loud

    13) MLB has suggested a rule requiring pitchers to face a minimum of three batters in each appearance, to lessen the tedious lefty/righty pitching changes that make the end of games drag out endlessly. In one game last year, a team used five relievers in one inning, with each pitcher facing one guy.

    12) Also looks like the DH could be in the NL soon, as soon as in this year or next, which makes the Mets’ acquiring Robinson Cano look better. The players’ union would like the DH to be put into place this season in the NL, probably because DH’s make a lot more money than the average player.

    Last season, pitchers batted .115 with a .144 on-base %age and .149 slugging %age in 4,524 at-bats.

    11) Big trade in the NBA late Tuesday night; Clippers traded Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic, Mike Scott to the 76ers for Landry Shamet, Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, a ’20 1st-round draft pick, ’21 unprotected 1st round pick and two 2nd round picks.

    Elton Brand is Philly’s GM, and he is being very aggressive in his trading.

    10) Kansas-Kansas State game Tuesday night was a joy to listen to; Jon Sciambi calling the action, with Stan Van Gundy/Chauncey Billups doing analysis. Really good team of guys, no screaming, no BS, they talked about basketball with enthusiasm and it was great.

    9) Tuesday night also was the 20th anniversary of the first time Mike Breen/Walt Frazier worked together on a Knicks’ telecast; they’re an excellent team.

    I was lucky enough to meet Walt Frazier at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas a few years ago; he was friendly, enjoyed talking when he really had no reason to be nice to me, a stranger. He’s a good guy, a great ambassador for the NBA and the Knicks.

    8) Atlanta Falcons released 43-year old kicker Matt Bryant, who had two years left on his contract; he was 20-21 on FG’s this past season, and had been with the Falcons for the last decade.

    7) Odds to win the AAF, the new football league:
    5-2: Arizona Hotshots
    4-1: Salt Lake Stallions
    5-1: Atlanta, Orlando, San Antonio
    10-1: Birmingham, Memphis, San Diego

    Not sure how you come up with odds for a brand-new league, but they did.

    6) One thing that will be coming up soon that is a little odd; Conference USA has left the last four games of its teams’ conference schedules blank. After the games of Feb 16, the league will then schedule those games, with top teams playing each other, to increase all their power rankings, in hopes of getting an at-large (they ain’t getting one).

    Maybe the C-USA survivor will get a better NCAA seed; this is the first time this approach has been tried, so we’ll see how it works.

    5) Roger Staubach turned 77 this week; typing that made me feel old.

    He is my sleeper answer to the question: “If you had the ball on your 20 with 2:00 left, down 3, who would you want as your QB?” I’m not a Dallas fan, but he was a great player.

    4) Former Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops re-emerged Wednesday as the coach/GM of the Dallas franchise in the XFL, a new league that will begin play in the spring of 2020.

    3) This is an interesting number: 40% of all men’s basketball players who enter Division I directly out of high school leave their first college by the end of their sophomore year.

    2) Damn, that happened fast; one of Kirk Herbstreit’s sons signed on to play DB at Clemson next season. I remember when Herbstreit would bring his kids on the College GameDay set, and they were all little kids. Time flies.

    1) Next year is the NFL’s 100th season, and it sounds like they’re going to start with a Packers-Bears Thursday night matchup in Week 1, the oldest rivalry in the league.

    Inside the Paint - Thursday
    Chris David

    The NBA trade deadline takes place today at 3:00 p.m. ET and handicapping the card on this day is never easy, especially with 12 teams in action. I’d tread lightly with early wagers, knowing that anything can happen throughout the day. Let’s handicap the card.

    East hosts West

    Minnesota (25-28 SU, 26-27 ATS) at Orlando (22-32 SU, 27-26-1 ATS):
    The Timberwolves blasted the Magic 120-103 on Jan. 4 as four-point home favorites and the ‘over’ (214) connected. Including that win, Minnesota has won four of the last five against the Orlando and the high side has cashed in all of the victories. The T-Wolves have gone both 10-7 SU and 10-7 ATS versus the Eastern Conference this season, which includes a 4-3 SU and 5-2 ATS record on the road. The ‘over’ has cashed in nine straight games vs. the East for Minnesota.

    This is a tough spot for Orlando, who is coming off a 132-122 loss at Oklahoma City on Tuesday as a nine-point road underdog. After this game, they had back on the road for three more games. The Magic have won two straight at home and against solid opponents (Pacers, Nets) as well but they have haven’t fared well in non-conference games this season (6-17 SU, 9-14 ATS). At home, the club has gone 3-7 both SU and ATS while the ‘over’ is 7-3.

    Orlando opened as a one-point favorite and was quickly pushed to -2. As a home favorite, the Magic are just 6-6 this season, 5-7 ATS and that includes the two recent wins mentioned above versus Indiana and Brooklyn.

    L.A. Clippers (30-25 SU, 29-25-1 ATS) at Indiana (35-19 SU, 26-27-1 ATS):
    Tough game to handicap as the Clippers were involved in a trade on Wednesday morning, which sent Tobias Harris and a couple reserves to Philadelphia. L.A. improved to 2-1 on its current six-game road trip this past Tuesday with a 117-115 win at Charlotte as a three-point road underdog. Including that win, the Clippers have gone 11-8 both SU and ATS versus the East. Make a note that Los Angeles has gone 7-3 both SU and ATS on the road in non-conference games but the absence of Harris changes everything.

    After dropping its first four games without Victor Oladipo, the Pacers have won rebounded with three straight wins. Indiana has gone 10-9 SU and 9-10 ATS this season versus the Western Conference and that includes a 6-4 both SU and ATS mark at home. One of those wins came on Tuesday, a 136-94 blowout decision over the L.A. Lakers.

    This will be the first meeting between the pair this season. Indiana has won and covered four straight games in this series. The Pacers opened as four-point home favorites and now sit at -6 as of late this morning.

    Pending Domination?

    Barring any major trades, these games will likely have the largest spreads on Thursday and we could be looking at easy ‘chalk’ winners if recent head-to-head history holds.

    Toronto (39-16 SU, 24-30-1 ATS) at Atlanta (18-35 SU, 24-29 ATS):
    The Raptors have won six straight against the Hawks and they’ve covered five of those games. The pair met in Canada on Jan. 8 and Atlanta put forth a great effort but still fell to Toronto 104-101 as a 13 ˝-point road underdog. The ‘under’ has gone 5-1 in the last six encounters. The Raptors as 10-point road favorites but the early money moved the line to Atlanta +9. The Hawks are coming off a solid road trip (4-3 SU, 4-3 ATS) but the first game back at home is never easy and they’ve been better away this season than at home (8-113 SU, 7-14 ATS).

    Memphis (22-33 SU, 24-30-1 ATS) at Oklahoma City (34-19 SU, 30-23 ATS):
    The Thunder have captured seven straight and nine of their last 10 meetings with the Grizzlies. Oklahoma City has gone 7-3 ATS during this span. Total bettors should note that the ‘over’ is on a 9-2 run in this series. Memphis is expected to be short-handed with center Marc Gasol resting and possibly other players involved in trades. The Thunder have gone 5-3 SU and 3-5 ATS when listed as a double-digit home favorite this season.

    TNT Action

    L.A. Lakers (27-27 SU, 23-29-2 ATS) at Boston (35-19 SU, 27-26-1 ATS):
    Both of these teams have been featured in trade speculation for the past week, more so the Lakers and their hopes of acquiring Anthony Davis from the Pelicans. Los Angeles was embarrassed 136-94 at Indiana on Tuesday and is now 1-2 since LeBron James returned to action and they currently sit on the outside of the playoffs.

    While the Lakers aren’t connecting, Boston has quietly won five straight and 10 of its last 11 games. The Celtics have gone 5-5-1 ATS during this run. At TD Garden, Boston has gone 17-3 SU and 14-6 ATS in its last 20 at home and the offense is averaging 119 points per game during this span, which has helped the ‘over’ go 13-7.

    Boston opened -7 ˝ and the number was pushed to -9. The assumption is that the Lakers will likely pull off a major deal and be short-handed for this game.

    The Celtics (10-9 SU, 8-11 ATS) versus the West, 5-3 SU and 4-4 ATS at home. While Boston has been pedestrian in non-conference matchups, L.A. has been awful for bettors versus the East, going 8-9 SU and 4-12-1 ATS. Outside of the Staples Center, the Lakers have gone 3-4 SU and 2-5 ATS.

    Boston owns a 4-1 record in the last five games of this series, but Los Angeles has gone 3-2 ATS during this span while the ‘under’ is 4-1 during this span.

    This game is set to tip at 8:05 p.m. ET nationally on TNT.

    San Antonio (32-23 SU, 31-23-1 ATS) at Portland (32-21 SU, 29-24 ATS):
    The “Rodeo Road Trip” for the Spurs hasn’t started out well as the team was blasted by the Kings on Monday (127-112) before getting hammered 141-102 at Golden State last night. Even though the Spurs are facing a back-to-back spot on Thursday, they shouldn’t be too fatigued as they rested DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge in last night’s loss. After dropping its first six games of the season on no rest, San Antonio has won its last three games in this situation but two of them took place at home. The ‘over’ has gone 8-1 for the Spurs on no rest this season.

    Portland is coming off a rare 118-108 home loss on Tuesday to Miami, which dropped their record to 22-8 SU and 19-11 ATS at the Moda Center. Prior to that setback, the Trail Blazers had won eight straight (7-1 ATS) at home. Make a note that Portland hasn’t lost two straight at home this season and the early money moved the Blazers from 4 to 5 ˝-point favorites for this game.

    Sticking with the home theme, the host has won and covered the last three meetings in this series, which includes both matchups this season and all three were decided by double digits. Portland captured a 121-108 win at the Moda Center on Oct. 20 before San Antonio avenged that loss with a 131-118 victory on Dec. 2.

    Total bettors should note that the ‘over’ is on an 8-2 run in this series and that includes four straight tickets to the high side.

    TNT will provide national coverage of this game at 10:35 p.m. ET.

    Trending towards the Under

    The Under has been a great play for both the Clippers and Pacers with the Under cashing in 13 of the Clippers last 19 games, and nine of the last 10 on the road. Numbers have been similar for the Pacers with the Under hitting in four of their last five overall and 17 of their last 24 at home.

    When these two teams meet up, the Under has hit in five of the last six at Bankers Life Fieldhouse with the average score over their last 10 games in the head-to-head 102-95 in favor of Indiana. Look for similar numbers today and back the game total Under 217.


    Playing well in the head-to-head at home

    The Magic are 2-point favorites as they host the Timberwolves. Minnesota have lost two straight games, and four of their last five and will be without Derrick Rose, Jeff Teague, Robert Covington, and Tyus Jones.

    Minnesota has struggled when playing Orlando posting a 6-14 record overall, and only winning one of the most recent 10 games on the road. With the Magic historically doing well in the head-to-head, back them as small 2-point home favorites.


    Needing to take more shots

    The Lakers travel to Boston to take on a Celtics team who have won nine of their last 10 games and have posted a 22-6 record on their home court this season.

    Before his hip injury, Kyle Kuzma was shooting the ball exceptionally well. Since then he saw his shot attempts per game decrease and his minutes played as well. It is imperative he shoots the ball with success today, otherwise the Lakers could be on their way to a second straight blowout. Fortunately, this looks like a good bounce back game for Kuzma who logged 28 points in their final meeting last season and shot 10 of 16 overall including five of seven from beyond the arc.


    Scoring with ease

    The Raptors travel to Atlanta to take on the Hawks as 9-point favorites. Toronto have won five of the last five in the head-to-head, and come in winning two straight. Atlanta have also won two in a row (against far worse opponents) but have not faired well on their home court this season winning only eight times.

    The Hawks defensively give up the most points in the Association with 118.2, and opponents are shooting 47.6 percent from the floor. For a Raptors team that shoots the ball effectively and ranks as one of the best road teams, they should be able find a lot of success today. Take Over their team total of 120.


    All-star on a roll

    The Spurs got decimated last night versus the Warriors, however they were without DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge, and the score was expected as the Warriors were double digit favorites. Today San Antonio heads to Portland as 6-point underdogs.

    The Spurs play their best when Aldridge is involved, and before sitting out last game for rest, Aldridge had scored 20 or more in six straight games, recording a double-double in four of those. Look for Aldridge to find success again today versus a Blazers team allowing opposing centers to score 21.9 points on 53.8 percent shooting and grab 13.9 rebounds per game. Back Over his points, rebounds, assists total today.
