    Armadillo: Thursday's six-pack

    Odds to win the college basketball national title:

    2-1— Duke

    7-2— Gonzaga, Virginia

    4-1— North Carolina

    10-1— Michigan

    12-1— Michigan State

    18-1— Kentucky, Tennessee


    **********

    Armadillo: Thursday's List of 13: Happy Opening Day, everyone!!!!

    13) So far this spring. UNLV fired Marvin Menzies and Vanderbilt fired Bryce Drew, both after their third season at that school, after seasons where their best player didn’t play after Christmas. Here are the details:

    — Menzies was 48-52 in three years at UNLV, 23-31 in Mountain West.
    — Drew was 40-59 in three years at Vanderbilt, 16-38 in SEC.

    By way of comparison, here is how another coach did in his first three years at his current job:

    — Unnamed coach: 38-47 at School A, 13-29 in conference games.

    In other words, if Duke had hired Mike Krzyzewski three years ago, he’d be fired by now.

    12) A person who has money to burn bet $500 on the Baltimore Orioles to win the World Series this year at 1,000-1 odds. Orioles were 47-115 last year, so good luck with that.

    11) How is it Opening Day and Dallas Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel are still free agents?

    10) Coaching carousel:
    — Alabama hired hoop coach Nate Oats, who 13 days ago signed an extension with Buffalo.
    — Stetson hired former UCF head coach Donnie Jones.
    — UNLV hired South Dakota State coach TJ Otzenberger.
    — Jackrabbits then replaced Otzenberger with assistant coach Eric Henderson
    — San Francisco promoted assistant Todd Golden to replace Kyle Smith as HC.

    9) Alabama guards John Petty, Kira Lewis, Jr. and Dazon Ingram all announced that they’re transferring out of Alabama’s program; this was before the Crimson Tide hired Oats.

    8) Eight different major league teams used a 4-man outfield at least once LY, all against left-handed hitters. Hitters that saw it the most? Lucas Duda and Joey Gallo (7 games). Overall, hitters were 10-37 (.270) when the defense had four OF’s.

    7) Last year, 42 different major league players played 5+ different positions.

    6) Random golf stat: 2018 European Ryder Cup golf team went 11-1 Thursday in the Match Play tournament in Texas. The guys on the American team went 4-5-2 (Rickie Fowler isn’t playing this week).

    5) Teams with best win %age in Sweet 16 games (minimum 12 games):
    — Michigan 13-3, last in 2018
    — Oklahoma State 11-3, last in 2005
    — North Carolina 27-8, last in 2017

    — Kentucky 36-12, last in 2-18

    4) Charlotte Hornets were 2-0 against the Spurs this season, first time they swept the season series with San Antonio since 1996-97.

    3) Oakland A’s traded minor league IF Jesus Lopez, international signing bonus pool space to Toronto for 1B/DH Kendrys Morales.

    2) Fernando Tatis Jr. will be 20 years, 85 days old on Opening Day; if he plays, he will be the youngest player to play on Opening Day since Adrian Beltre in 1999.

    1) Today is Opening Day in baseball, always a day full of optimism- if you can’t be optimistic when you’re 0-0, when can you be? Not every team has realistic hopes of making the playoffs this year, but you never know. At this time last year, I had zero hope of the A’s making the playoffs, but they wound up winning 97 games!!! Enjoy the season.

    MLB Daily Line Drive: Opening Day picks, betting odds and analysis
    Andrew Caley

    The Under First 5 Innings went 23-4 in Jacob deGrom's last 27 starts last season. Will that trend roll over to 2019?

    Winter is finally over. Which means baseball is back and MLB bettors can rejoice. That also means the return of our famous MLB Daily Line Drive, in which we will break down the odds, streaking and slumping starters, trends and much more, plus give you our best bets every day of the Big League season. Here is our MLB Daily Line Drive for Opening Day 2019.

    DOUBLE-PLAY PICKS

    NEW YORK METS vs WASHINGTON NATIONALS (-141, 6.5)


    Those of you familiar with Line Drive, you’ll know that Opening Day this year means one thing, and one thing only…

    IT’S JACOB DEGROM DAY!

    We welcome back one of the most profitable baseball bets in recent memory. The Under first five innings in Jacob deGrom starts. The Mets and deGrom were a perfect storm for this bet. deGrom was spectacular on his way to the Cy Young Award, while the Mets were one of the worst hitting teams in baseball. As a result, the Under first five innings went 23-4 (85.2 percent) in his last 27 starts last season.

    deGrom had a historic season in 2018, pitching to a ridiculous 2.67 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP while striking out 269 batters compared to 46 walks. He also limited batters to a .196 average and a .521 OPS. In the first five innings of games those numbers shrunk to a 1.52 ERA, a 0.87 WHIP and a .181 opponent batting average.

    Now, the Mets did attempt to upgrade their offense this offseason bringing in Robinson Cano, Jed Lowrie and Wilson Ramos. But, none of those guys inspire that much confidence. We’ll need to see it before we can believe it when it comes to the Mets’ offense.

    Oh, and did we mention? Some guy named Max Scherzer is starting for the Nationals. We heard he’s pretty good.

    PICK: Under 3.5 First Five Innings (-130)

    CHICAGO CUBS vs TEXAS RANGERS (+115, 9.5)

    Life is tougher these days for the “Loveable Losers.” Expectations have grown since their 2016 world championship, and despite winning 187 games the last two seasons, not getting back to the Fall Classic has got to be a bit of a disappointment.

    But there is no reason to think the Cubs won’t be in the mix for another National League Pennant in 2019. They trot out basically the same team they have the last couple of seasons and the rotation could be improved with a healthy Yu Darvish and a full season of Cole Hamels.

    The Cubs open the season with an interleague matchup in Arlington, Texas where they’ll hand the ball to Jon Lester. Lester is a gamer who will be making his fourth consecutive Opening Day start for the Cubs against a Rangers team that is in Year 1 of its rebuild.

    Lester was solid in 2018, posting a 3.32 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP, but he was more comfortable away from the “Friendly Confines.” On the road Lester went 11-2 with a 2.87 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP. He faces a Rangers lineup that is also mostly the same as last season and ranked 21st in average and OPS versus lefties.

    Texas counters with Mike Minor. The lefty had a solid if unspectacular year in 2018 with a 4.18 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP. The Cubs ranked sixth in average and OBP against south paws a year ago. Take the Cubbies to start 2019 on the right note.

    PICK:
    Cubs RL (+115)

    STREAKING AND SLUMPING STARTING PITCHERS

    STREAKING


    Blake Snell, Tampa Bay Rays (2018: 21-5, 1.89 ERA, $1,474): When you’re talking about streaking starters heading into a new season there’s no better place to start than the reigning Cy Young Award winner. Snell had a tremendous year for the Rays, pitching to a ridiculous 1.89 ERA, an 0.97 WHIP, good for a 20-5 record. He also led the AL in homer runs per nine innings.

    He was even better at Tropicana Field, where he went 10-1 with a 1.27 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP. He’s in tough on Opening Day facing off against Just Verlander and the Astros. The Rays are currently +120 home dogs with a total of 6.5.

    SLUMPING

    Carlos Rodon, Chicago White Sox (2018: 6-8, 4.18 ERA, $66): The Pale Hose young south paw looked like 2018 was going to be his breakout year, then September happened. In Rodon’s final six starts of last season he pitched to a 9.22 ERA with a 2.12 WHIP.

    Maybe the slog of another losing season got him down late in the year and could bounce back to start the season. Rodon and the White Sox are slight -105 favorites when they visit the Royals, with a total of 8.5.

    WEATHER WATCH


    Weather can always be a factor in early season baseball. So, make sure you check out our in-depth Weather page every day to get the inside scoop on how adverse conditions could affect your bets.

    Quickly today, there are notable hitter’s winds at Yankee Stadium, Citizens Bank Park in Philly and the Oakland Coliseum. While there will be expected pitcher’s winds at Globe Life Park in Arlington and Petco Park in San Diego.

    KNOW YOUR UMPS

    Umpires are another overlooked aspect of baseball handicapping but knowing the tendencies of those guys calling balls and strikes can be a valuable recourse. For instance, did you know that thanks to his low strike rate (62.7 percent) Chris Guccione was the best Over umpire in baseball last season with games going 19-6 O/U when he was behind home plate? You can find all that information and more on our Umpire page.

    POSH PINSTRIPES

    The Yankees are massive -375 favorites for their home opener against the Orioles. That is the largest moneyline favorite on Opening Day since 2005. In fact, there has only been one other Opening Day over that span to close as a moneyline favorite greater than -300 and that was the Los Angeles Dodgers who closed as -355 favorites for their home opener against the Padres in 2017. It should be noted however, the Yankees were moneyline favorites of -300 or greater 13 times last season and only went 7-6.

    Starter-Based Trend of the Day:

    -- The Rays were 5-0 SU last season as a DOG with Blake Snell when they won in his last start against their opponent.
