  • Saints bury books in Week 13
    December 4, 2017


    After nine consecutive wins and eight straight covers, the Eagles experienced only their second loss of the season Sunday night at Seattle which in turn helped the Las Vegas sports not lose too much, but still enough to hurt. The books were all on the ropes ready for the public knockout punch with another Eagles cover following a rough first 13 games of Sunday's week 13 action. Most books still lost, but a few were able to escape with a short profit.

    "Every scenario for us in the Sunday night game is a loser with the Seahawks and Under being our best scenario," MGM Resorts sports book hub manager Jeff Stoneback said just prior to kickoff of the Seahawks eventual 24-10 win.

    The Eagles had lots of live parlays waiting to cash after nearly every popular team covered the spread earlier.

    "The Saints and Over were both bad for us, but not as bad as the Packers and Rams," said Station Casinos sports book director Jason McCormick. However, Station books were fortunate to escape with a small win thanks to Seattle, which paid bettors +180 on the money-line.

    There was no escaping the Saints' 31-21 home win against the Panthers. Every book took a beating in this battle between the NFC South where the Saints moved from 4-point favorites to -6 by kickoff.

    "The Saints were our worst game of the day," said Stoneback. "The Patriots weren't as bad just because it was a morning game. If was in the afternoon it may have been worse than the Saints."

    The Saints game was in the afternoon and had results branched in from the nine 10 a.m. PT games waiting to cash, and they did cash a bunch. The most popular two-team parlay of the day was Patriots to the Saints. As for New England, the Westgate's 2-to-1 Super Bowl favorite, all they did on Sunday was win 23-3 at Buffalo (+8) for its eighth straight win and sixth straight cover.

    These are the type of teams the public loves to hook up in teasers and parlays and if you look at how the sports books have been faring on a few teams since Week 4, you'll wonder why anyone would bet any other team. The Eagles (8-1 ATS), Rams (7-2 ATS), Vikings (7-2 ATS), Patriots (7-2 ATS) and Saints (6-3 ATS) have combined to go an incredible 35-10 ATS since Oct. 1. The Vikings' 14-9 win at Atlanta had equal action game because the Falcons are still popular, but the public finds other teams to insert.

    "The favorites only went 7-6 ATS on the day, but bettors caught most of the favorites they we're betting the most collectively such as the Saints, Patriots, Rams and Jaguars," said Stoneback. "It was just a terrible afternoon. We we're a small loser in the nine morning games, but got whalloped in the afternoon with the Rams and Saints."

    Jacksonville's No. 1 defense gained public favor this week as they were 10-point home favorites against the Colts and they'd win 30-10. The Rams (-7) took care of business at Arizona with a 32-16 win to maintain it's lead in the NFC West. They get a visit from a Philly squad this week coming off a loss and a couple long west coast flights. It'll be interesting see how they bounce back and if the Rams are really serious about getting that bye in the playoffs.

    Bettors knew how to stay clear of betting against the Browns this week catching +13.5 at Los Angeles against the Chargers. Cleveland lost 19-10 to cover making them 3-9 ATS and pulling them out of the bettors' gutter. After Denver's awful 35-9 loss at Miami, the Broncos (2-9-1 ATS) are now the worst cover team in the NFL. Way to go Mr. Elway, Super Bowl to toilet bowl in record time.

    Anyway, the inflated point spread on the Chargers kept bettors away from picking against the Browns again.

    The Giants also did the amazing to get a backdoor field goal to cut the Raiders (-9.5) lead to 24-17 with under two minutes to go. It's one of the few games to go the books way because the public absolutely hates Geno Smith. There was one game the books also thought they had that turned on them in the last seconds.

    "The Titans (-7) ended up being a loser for us thanks to that play," said Stoneback of Derrick Henry's 75-yard TD run with under a minute to go to go from a 17-13 ATS loser to a 24-13 ATS win. The Texans did the same thing the Giants did by kicking a field goal when down by 10 with hopes of recovering the onside kick. Henry rolled through a sweep and just kept plowing all the way down field. It was cheered heavily by the sports book crowds.

    Week 13 finished up with favorites going 7-7 ATS with five underdogs winning outright and eight of them staying Under the total. Congrats on a great week people, Merry Christmas!

        • Armadillo: Tuesday's six-pack

          — Steelers 23, Bengals 20— Cincy blew a 17-0 first-half lead; they had 173 yards in penalties.

          — Ohio State 71, Michigan 62— Wolverines blew a 20-point first half lead.

          — Wisconsin 64, Penn State 63— Badgers are just 2-5 in their last seven games.

          — Indiana 77, Iowa 64— Hawkeyes are struggling at 4-5, 0-2 in conference.

          — Florida State 83, Florida 66— Impressive road win for the Seminoles.

          — I’m curious if the NFL puts Steelers-Bengals on in primetime again next year, after some of the vicious, WWE-type antics in last night’s game.


          **********

          Armadillo: Tuesday's List of 13: Nobody asked me, but…….

          13) New Jersey Giants fired their coach and GM Monday, in midst of a terrible 2-10 season that blew up even worse when QB Eli Manning was benched last week.

          Interim coach Steve Spagnuolo takes over; owner John Mara says it is Spagnuolo’s choice who starts at quarterback from now on.

          Yeah sure…as long as his initials are “E.M.”

          12) You could make a case for Giants’ GM Jerry Reese keeping his job; Giants won couple of Super Bowls in Reese’s 11 years as the GM, but he is gone now, too.

          11) Instead of two 6-6 teams playing in some obscure bowl game on a Tuesday afternoon in a empty stadium, they should’ve let Ohio State/Alabama play a play-in game in that bowl, 10-14 days before the national semi-finals. Imagine the TV ratings that would get?

          10) If you don’t think Alabama should be in the college football playoff, keep in mind that on a neutral field, they would be favored over any college team in the country, including Ohio State. They’re favored over Clemson in the Sugar Bowl, and Clemson is #1 in the country.

          9) Gus Malzahn gets $49M for seven years to stay at Auburn, as college football coaching salaries continue to go through the roof.

          As recently as 2005, Malzahn was a high school coach in Springdale, Arkansas. Go figure.

          8) In their last five games, Buffalo Bills were outscored 71-6 in the third quarter; they didn’t say it on TV Sunday, but that would suggest their coaches don’t make good halftime adjustments.

          7) Speaking of the Bills, their kicker Steven Hauschka never kicked a football until he was 19 years old. He played soccer/lacrosse and also played trumpet in his HS’s jazz band.

          When he went to Middlebury College, Hauschka was cut from the soccer team, so he tried out for the football team, did really well and wound up transferring to NC State. He’s kicked for five NFL teams and also kicked for Las Vegas in the UFL.

          6) I see video clips of kids strength-training by turning over these huge tires that must go on tractors or something; who came up with that idea? It must work and it looks cool— they just keep turning the tire over and over. Reminds me of the World’s Strongest Man contest they used to show on TV— they had some creative contests that all looked like too much work for me.

          5) Boise State 73, Oregon 70— Go on Twitter or YouTube and find the video clip of the kid on Boise State nailing a runner from just over half court to give Boise this upset win in Eugene over the weekend. Excellent win for both Boise State and the Mountain West.

          4) Houston/Cincinnati’s college basketball teams are both playing off-campus this season, as their gyms are undergoing multi-million $$$ renovations. Houston is playing home games this season at Texas Southern; Bearcats are playing over the river, at Northern Kentucky U.

          3) Monday had to be a big day for UCLA basketball coach Steve Alford; DiAngelo Ball dropped out of UCLA, giving Alford one less big headache to worry about.

          DiAngelo Ball is not expected to ever be an NBA player, so you would think that maybe it would be a good idea if he got a college education, especially for free, but what do I know?

          2) Monday Night Football takes:
          — Sean McDonough doesn’t enjoy announcing football as much as he enjoys announcing basketball.
          — When it rains, could someone please give Mike Tomlin a jacket?

          1) These Big 14 conference college hoop games are being played in December this year because of the conference tournament being a week earlier than normal in March, but they’ll continue next year, because the Big 14 is going to a 20-game conference schedule, starting next season.

            • Shaky OKC start adds to Northwest intrigue

              Head coach Gregg Popovich rested nearly all of the Spurs’ top players on Sunday and still nearly beat Oklahoma City, which suffered through a sloppy game from Russell Westbrook and a foul-riddled off night from Paul George.

              At home, in front of a crowd that has grown nervous instead of confident given what’s transpired over the first few weeks, the Thunder held on to a three-point win in a game where they were favored by 8 and up by as much as 14 in the second half.

              Per the Westgate, they remain at 12/1 to win the Western Conference despite opening the week as the Northwest Division’s last-place team.

              Coming into the regular season, I believed that the Thunder stood as the biggest threat to the Warriors making a fourth straight NBA Finals appearance. I’m not ready to give up on it after six weeks, but certainly have concerns their lack of chemistry is about moving parts that are destined to forever not mesh.

              Westbrook is having issues getting into his preferred in-game rhythm while being cognizant of the fact George and Carmelo Anthony need the ball to get going. He’s had issues with turnovers and has looked rushed, but with so much time still remaining – nearly three-quarters of the season – reps over time can alleviate the concerns.

              George isn’t shooting it well, currently at 41 percent, and has wild scoring swings of late that have seen him score 2 and 8 points in separate games this week, but also dropped 36 on Minnesota. Anthony has only scored more than 20 points once in the last four games.

              Rest of Northwest to make Thunder road bumpy
              Since the Thunder dominated Golden State in the first meeting of the season on Nov. 22, there’s obviously something to work with there. Is Billy Donovan the right guy to wave the right wand and help it all come together? That might be something to consider if Oklahoma City continues to struggle this month.

              After facing the Jazz on Tuesday, OKC hits the road for five of six, opening in Brooklyn before heading down to Memphis. The Thunder than return home to face the Hornets before going to Indiana, Philadelphia and New York. ‘Melo will be making his first appearances in NYC over the next 12 days and is averaging 18.7 points, his lowest output since his rookie year. It will be interesting to see how the Thunder makes it through this stretch. If they flourish, things could take off.

              The Thunder opened the season at 17/2 to win the West and were an overwhelming 1/2 favorite to take the Northwest Division, so a slow start has only slightly tempered expectations. Only Golden State (1/4), Houston (9/2) and San Antonio (7/1) have better odds than the Thunder to win the West since the presumption that they’ll soon take off remains in place for many.

              Their lack of cohesion does make the long regular season far more interesting since no one has taken full advantage to build much of a lead in the Northwest. The four teams ahead of the Thunder were separated by just a half-game on Nov. 5, all less than three games up on OKC.

              Those 12-1 odds the Thunder are fetching in the West are far superior to division-leading Minnesota (40/1), Denver (100/1) and Portland (100/1) despite the fact OKC became the last one to pick up its 10th victory. Utah (150/1), just a half-game behind the division leaders entering the showdown with the Thunder, looks far more formidable than most anticipated.

              Jazz center Rudy Gobert recovered faster than expected from a bone bruise in his leg that was originally supposed to sideline him until mid-month. Instead, he returned on Monday night and grabbed 10 rebounds in 21 minutes in a 116-69 rout of Washington. Despite missing the presence of the top defensive center in the game, Utah went 7-4 in the 11 games he missed, winning and covering five in succession.

              Utah will be able to put his 7-foot-9 wingspan to use entering a critical stretch that will help determine whether a franchise that was written off after losing Gordon Hayward to Boston via free agency can be a factor all season. So far, you have to like its chances.

              The Jazz have also gotten backup point guard Raul Neto back from a hamstring injury and will soon get wing Rodney Hood back from an ankle sprain. Utah hosts Houston in the second half of a nationally-televised TNT doubleheader on Thursday, so they’ll be under the microscope. With shooting guard Alec Burks pouring in 28 points off the bench, Utah is flexing depth most slept on prior to leaving for a season-long six-game road trip that won’t see them play another home game for two weeks after they host the Rockets.

              Former No. 2 overall pick Derrick Favors has averaged 16.5 points and 9.3 rebounds since moving into Gobert’s spot at center, while rookie Donovan Mitchell has averaged 25 points per game over his last five. The Jazz are certainly serving notice that they’re going to be a problem. I’d take advantage of their futures now before the odds become less lucrative.

              The Thunder figure to have company at the top in the Northwest for most of the season given the multitude of candidates that have emerged.

              Minnesota opened as the likeliest alternative to OKC as division champ, coming in 3/1. They’ve had their own issues with getting key new cogs Jimmy Butler, Jeff Teague, Taj Gibson and Jamal Crawford up to speed as they build around young cornerstones Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins, but have avoided a losing streak longer than two games and face a manageable schedule over the next few weeks, playing five straight in Minneapolis from Dec. 10-16.

              Of the teams coming into town, only the 76ers and Blazers have winning records.

              Portland has had the most continuity with Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum leading the charge. It held the Northwest lead as November came to an end but suffered home setbacks to the Bucks and Pelicans to fall out of first. Although young forward Noah Vonleh has stepped his game up as a prolific rebounder, getting Al-Farouq Aminu should upgrade depth in the frontcourt and elevate the defense. He’d missed some time with an ankle injury but should have an impact going forward.

              Denver is the team that may end up falling into the background before the month is up since it can’t stay healthy. The Nuggets have been extremely unlucky, losing Paul Millsap for weeks due to a wrist injury and seeing star center Nikola Jokic turn an ankle last week. Both missed Monday’s 122-105 loss in Dallas, opening a six-game road trip that couldn’t come at a worse time given their ailments since includes games against New Orleans, Detroit and Boston, all teams with elite big men.

              Jokic is a likely All-Star and the franchise’s key piece, so if the injury lingers, it could be a deal-breaker to Denver’s chances. The Nuggets have feasted on the comforts of home, posting a 10-3 mark at Pepsi Center, but is just 3-8 on the road, potentially making them a team to fade relentlessly as they endure a difficult stretch.

              They’ll visit the Pelicans, Pacers, Pistons, Celtics, Thunder, Trail Blazers, Warriors and Timberwolves over the next three weeks. All those teams will be favored, so unless the Nuggets get healthy or find a way to pull off some upsets, they could be in a world of trouble before 2018 even arrives.

              If nothing else, that means Oklahoma City isn’t likely to be a last-place team too much longer.

                • Westbrook's triple-double helps Thunder rally past Jazz
                  December 5, 2017


                  OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Russell Westbrook scored 34 points in his seventh triple-double of the season, and the Oklahoma City Thunder rallied from 17 points down in the second half to defeat the Utah Jazz 100-94 on Tuesday night.

                  Westbrook finished with 14 assists and 13 rebounds. Paul George scored 21 points, Steven Adams had 20 points and nine rebounds and Carmelo Anthony added 14 points and eight rebounds for the Thunder, who won their third straight.

                  Rookie Donovan Mitchell scored 31 points and Joe Ingles added 16 for the Jazz, who had won six straight and scored at least 106 points in each game.

                  The Jazz led 47-39 at halftime, and they opened things up even more early in the third quarter. A driving layup by Alec Burks put the Jazz up 72-55 as the Thunder continued to misfire on open shots.

                  Westbrook closed out the third quarter strong and helped the Thunder cut Utah's lead to 80-68 by the end of the period. He scored 11 points in the quarter.

                  The Thunder finally took the lead on a layup by Westbrook with about four minutes remaining.

                  RAPTORS 126, SUNS 113

                  TORONTO (AP) - Kyle Lowry had 20 points and 10 assists, DeMar DeRozan scored 20 points and Toronto beat Phoenix, improving its NBA-best home record to 9-1.

                  Suns guard Devin Booker had to be carried off the floor by two teammates after suffering an apparent leg injury with 2:40 remaining and Phoenix trailing by 11. Booker froze in pain while playing defense and did not move as trainers came out to examine him.

                  Booker, who shook off a 2-for-11 start to score a season-high 46 points Monday in a win at Philadelphia, shot 0 for 7 in the first half Tuesday. He finished 4-for-15 with 19 points, including 10 of 12 from the foul line.

                  Serge Ibaka scored 19 points and OG Anunoby matched his career high with 16 as Toronto won its fourth straight.

                  The Raptors, who have scored 100 or more points in 10 consecutive games, almost reached triple digits in three quarters Tuesday. Toronto led 97-79 heading to the fourth.

                  • NBA notebook: Warriors' Curry out at least two weeks
                    December 5, 2017


                    Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry will be sidelined at least two weeks with a sprained right ankle, the team announced Tuesday.

                    An MRI exam performed in Charlotte, N.C., displayed no structural damage and the Warriors said Curry will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

                    The Warriors are in Charlotte for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

                    Curry injured the right ankle late in Monday's 125-115 win over the New Orleans Pelicans. Postgame X-rays were negative.

                    --New York Knicks guard Tim Hardaway Jr., the team's second-leading scorer, will be sidelined for at least two weeks because of a "stress injury" in his lower left leg, the team announced.

                    A stress injury means Hardaway has either a stress reaction or a stress fracture, with the latter being more serious. Based on information received from medical experts, the New York Post reported that a stress reaction could sidelined a player for two to six weeks, while a stress fracture could keep a player out for two months.

                    Hardaway, who is averaging 17.8 points, has already missed two games because of the injury and he has begun the rehabilitation process.

                    --San Antonio Spurs All-Star small forward Kawhi Leonard still doesn't know when he will make his season debut. But it could occur later this week.

                    The soft-spoken Leonard has missed the team's first 24 games due to a quadriceps injury and said he is feeling good during his first interaction with reporters since Sept. 25.

                    "I'm feeling pretty healthy right now," Leonard said. "I think they told you guys (reporters) that I've been playing five-on-five. So that's where I'm at right now. It's been good. Just still, just gotta go through a few more processes of doing that. I should be back soon."

                    Speculation persists that Leonard could see action in Friday's home game against the Boston Celtics. But Leonard said there isn't a return date picked out.

                        December 6, 2017


                        Game of the Night: Wolves at Clippers – 10:35 PM EST

                        These two Western Conference foes are hooking up for the second time in four days as Minnesota edged Los Angeles on Sunday night, 112-106. The Wolves failed to cover as hefty 12-point home favorites, while shooting 43% from the floor. Jimmy Butler led Minnesota with 33 points, while the Clippers’ starting backcourt of Lou Williams and Austin Rivers combined to score 53 points in the loss. Since dropping of six of seven to the Clippers since 2015, Minnesota has won three consecutive meetings against Los Angeles.

                        The Wolves (14-11 SU, 10-13-2 ATS) have been pointspread poison in the favorite role recently by posting an 0-6-1 ATS record in the past seven opportunities when laying points. The latest pointspread defeat came in Monday’s 95-92 setback at Memphis as three-point favorites, helping the Grizzlies snap an 11-game losing streak. Minnesota has done a solid job of rebounding off a road loss this season by going 5-1 SU, but 2-4 ATS in this situation.

                        The Clippers (8-14 SU, 9-13 ATS) return to Staples Center following the six-point setback at Minnesota, wrapping up an 0-2 road swing that included a 26-point defeat at Dallas last Saturday. Since beginning the season at 2-0 on their home court, Doc Rivers’ squad has slipped to 2-6 in the past eight home contests, while compiling only four ATS wins in the past 18 games since a 4-0 ATS start to the season.

                        Sitting Steph

                        The Warriors (19-6 SU, 12-13 ATS) picked up their fourth straight victory on their six-game road trip by erasing a 22-point deficit in Monday’s 125-115 triumph at New Orleans to barely cash as nine-point favorites. However, Golden State will be without MVP guard Stephen Curry for the next two weeks after he suffered a sprained ankle in the win. Curry will be unable to face the team he grew up watching, the Hornets, as Golden State seeks its seventh consecutive victory against Charlotte since 2014.

                        The Hornets (9-13 SU, 10-11-1 ATS) continue to be a terrific home team after grabbing their eighth victory in 11 tries at Spectrum Center this season in Monday’s 104-94 victory over Orlando. Charlotte snapped a four-game losing streak, while improving to 7-1 SU/ATS as a home favorite. However, the Hornets have slumped to a 3-8-1 ATS record overall in the underdog role, while putting together a 1-2 SU/ATS mark as a home ‘dog.

                        King vs. Kings

                        Cleveland (17-7 SU, 9-14-1 ATS) is hitting its stride as the Cavaliers have run off 12 consecutive victories. LeBron James helped lead the Cavs to a 113-91 blowout over the rebuilding Bulls on Monday with 23 points, while Kevin Love and Dwyane Wade each put up 24 points to help Cleveland easily cash as nine-point favorites. Cleveland returns to Quicken Loans Arena to host Sacramento, as the Cavs try to improve on a dreadful 1-10-1 ATS home mark, which includes an 0-7 ATS ledger as a double-digit favorite.

                        Sacramento (7-16 SU, 9-11-3 ATS) has performed well of late against the number by posting a 4-1-1 ATS record the last six games. The Kings rallied late against the Bucks on Saturday but fell short in a 109-104 defeat, as Sacramento covered 13-point underdogs, while eclipsing the OVER for the fourth straight game. Sacramento went into Cleveland last season as 10 ½-point ‘dogs and upset the Cavaliers in overtime, 116-112 to snap a four-game skid to the Eastern Conference champs dating back to 2015.

                        Central Command


                        The Bucks and Pistons are each coming off road losses on Monday as the two Central division rivals meet up in Milwaukee. Detroit captured the first matchup this season at home, 105-96 as 1 ½-point favorites, but Milwaukee rebounded with a 99-95 home triumph less than two weeks later as each game finished UNDER the total.

                        Milwaukee (12-10 SU, 9-11-2 ATS) returns home after dropping a 111-100 decision at Boston on Monday, as the Bucks have won four of their past five games at BMO Harris Bradley Center. The Pistons (14-9 SU, 15-7-1 ATS) look to close out their four-game road swing with a victory after losing the first three games at Washington, Philadelphia, and San Antonio. In spite of the defeat to the Spurs on Monday, Detroit improved to 8-2 ATS this season in the role of a road underdog.

                        Mav Plenty

                        Following a 1-10 SU and 2-9 ATS start to the season, Dallas (7-17 SU, 10-14 ATS) has stepped up its play of late by covering in seven of the last 10 contests. The Mavericks are coming off a wire-to-wire 122-105 blowout of the Nuggets on Monday, as Rick Carlisle’s team picked up back-to-back wins for only the second time this season. The task doesn’t get easier on Wednesday with a trip to Boston as the Mavericks attempt to avenge a 110-102 overtime loss to the Celtics on November 20 as 6 ½-point underdogs.

                        The Celtics (21-4 SU, 19-5-1 ATS) finish off a five-game homestand after coming off three straight wins over the 76ers, Suns, and Bucks. Boston has won all seven games against Western Conference foes this season, while the C’s are currently on an 8-1 OVER run overall.

                        Head-to-Head Matchups


                        -- The Pacers destroyed the Bulls in their first matchup at the United Center, 105-87 on November 10. The two Central division rivals hook up in Indianapolis as the Pacers have captured three of the past four home meetings with the Bulls. Chicago is riding a nine-game losing streak, while Indiana owns a perfect 5-0 SU/ATS record as a home favorite this season.

                        -- The Magic and Hawks meet for the first time this season as the two Southeast division squads split four games last season. Atlanta has dropped seven of its last 10 games, while Orlando has lost 11 of its past 13 contests since an impressive 8-4 start.

                        -- Since December 2013, the Grizzlies have captured seven of the past eight meetings with the Knicks, as New York’s only win in this stretch came last season at Madison Square Garden. Memphis ended an 11-game losing streak in Monday’s home victory over Minnesota, while New York has lost five of its past six contests.

                        -- Denver ripped up New Orleans in its last matchup at Pepsi Center last month, 146-114, marking the Nuggets’ third straight win over the Pelicans since last April. New Orleans is riding a 1-4 run following Monday’s home setback to Golden State, while Denver has dropped six of its previous seven road contests.

                        -- The Spurs have owned the Heat since Game 3 of the 2014 NBA Finals by winning 10 straight matchups. San Antonio cruised past Miami in its first meeting this season, 117-100, as the Spurs are 9-1 ATS in this stretch. The Spurs are rolling of late by winning five of their past six contests, while the Heat have lost three of their last four games.
