    Sunday’s Den: Wrapping up a sports Saturday

    13) Like everything else in 2020, the first real Saturday of college football was odd, capped off by a Coastal Carolina-Kansas game that kicked off at 9pm local time in Lawrence, followed by a 1am ET Korean baseball game. Fun for the whole family.

    I’m not a scientist, but I’m pretty sure playing football in this environment isn’t a great idea, especially when the players do not get paid, but college sports is big business, and if you don’t believe that, well Oklahoma charged $55 or so on pay-per-view for their opener against I-AA juggernaut Missouri State. Sooners won 48-0; thrilling.

    12) If the presidents/AD’s in the Big X knew what was going to happen on the field Saturday, they might’ve thought a quarantine wasn’t such a bad idea.

    Coastal Carolina 38, Kansas 23— Second year in row the Chanticleers upset Kansas in Lawrence; this game was 28-0 until just before halftime.

    11) Texas Tech 35, Houston Baptist 33— Houston Baptist is I-AA, so this is kind of like a loss for Tech, except it isn’t officially a loss. I mean, Tech was a 40-point favorite and won by 2.

    10) Louisiana 31, Iowa State 14— Ragin’ Cajuns’ DB’s dominated the Iowa State receivers; it helped that the refs didn’t seem interested in throwing any flags for defensive holding or PI. Iowa State was a 13-point favorite.

    Louisiana missed two easy field goals, but ran a punt back for a TD and also ran a kickoff back for a TD. Saturday looked like it was a very rough day for placekickers, especially young ones.

    9) Arkansas State (+14.5) 35, Kansas State 31— Arkansas State’s coach is Blake Anderson; he deserves some joy in his life- his wife passed away just before last season started, and then he lost his dad this offseason. Guy is a good coach who could be moving up soon.

    8) Game of the Day: Tex-San Antonio 51, Texas State 48 OT— Down 41-35, Texas State ran a punt back 91 yards for a TD with 1:13 left, but they missed the PAT, then missed a short FG in overtime, and the Roadrunners escaped with a win in Jeff Traylor’s debut as USTA’s coach.

    Texas State played without its starting QB, who sat out with COVID-related issues.

    7) Saturday’s football upsets:
    — Louisiana (+13) 31, Iowa State 14
    — Arkansas State (+14.5) 35, Kansas State 31
    — Georgia Tech (+13) 16, Florida State 13
    — Coastal Carolina (+6) 38, Kansas 23

    6) Kansas State (8-1) won the SouthPoint’s prop bet by scoring the first touchdown of the day; the favorites were North Carolina (3-1), Appalachian State (7-2).

    5) Some NFL guys had big paydays Saturday; Saints’ RB Alvin Kamara, Vikings’ RB Dalvin Cook and Rams’ WR Cooper Kupp all got contract extensions.

    4) Oakland A’s got some very bad news; 3B Matt Chapman will have hip surgery, is out for the season. Thats a big loss- they somehow acquired Jake Lamb from Arizona right before I typed this. They must pay Arizona under the table to cut him, then they signed Lamb up when no one else claimed him.

    3) Arizona/Red Sox are first two teams to clinch their under bets in season win total wagering.

    2) Lakers 119, Rockets 96— Lakers win series 4-1; you get the feeling Mike D’Antoni will be the scapegoat for Houston’s 2nd-round exit. Now the Lakers hope Denver can force a Game 7 against the Clippers tonight, just to tire both teams out.

    1) If the baseball playoffs started today (they do not):
    AL East- Tampa Bay, Toronto
    AL Central- Chicago, Minnesota
    AL West- Oakland, Houston
    AL Wild Cards- Cleveland, New York

    NL East- Atlanta, Philadelphia
    NL Central- Chicago, St Louis
    NL West- Los Angeles, San Diego
    NL Wild Cards- Miami, San Francisco

    15 days left in the season, and the Marlins are still a playoff team.

    NBA public betting, line movement September 13
    Patrick Everson

    Jamal Murray and the Nuggets meet Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals Sunday. The SuperBook has Los Angeles an 8.5-point favorite.

    NBA betting odds are up for the lone playoff game on the Sunday schedule, Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals. The Denver Nuggets look to once again extend this series against the Los Angeles Clippers.

    The SuperBook provided insights on NBA opening lines and early line movement, sharp money and public betting for Sunday’s matchup.

    NBA line movement

    Denver trailed Los Angeles 3-1 in this best-of-7 series and was down a dozen at halftime of Game 5 on Friday. But the Nuggets rallied to grab a 111-105 victory and push the Clippers to Sunday’s 1 p.m. ET Game 6. The Clippers opened -8 at The SuperBook and reached -9 Saturday night, but quickly ticked back to -8.5.

    The total opened at 213.5 and moved to 214 late Saturday night.

    NBA public betting

    Perhaps surprisingly, the Consensus is showing strong support for Denver to cover the number in Game 7. Through Saturday night, the Nuggets were landing 69 percent of picks, and on the total, 67 percent of picks were on the Over.

    On the total, 71 percent of early Consensus picks were on the Over.

    **********

    Armadillo: Tuesday's Den: Nobody asked me, but…….

    13) Steelers 26, Giants 16:
    — Pitt led 16-10 late in 3rd quarter; Giants had a 19-play drive that ended on an end zone INT.
    — Last five years, Pittsburgh is 15-6 ATS against NFC teams.
    — 11 of Steelers’ last 14 road openers stayed under the total.

    — Barkley carried ball 15 times for 6 yards; he caught 6 passes for 60 yards.
    — Giants started one drive on Pittsburgh’s 3-yard line but only kicked a FG.
    — Giants started out 0-1 eight of last nine years.
    — Giants are 4-14 ATS in last 18 games as a home underdog.

    12) Titans 16, Denver 14
    — Titans missed three FG’s and a PAT, but kicked 25-yard FG with 0:17 left for the win.
    — The was the Oilers/Titans’ first win in Denver since 1980 (they also won a 1987 replacement game, but I don’t count that)
    — Tennessee won seven of last eight road openers, covered nine of last 13.

    — Broncos were stopped on downs on the Tennessee 1-yard line in 2nd quarter.
    — Titans converted 7-16 on 3rd down, Denver only 3-9.
    — Denver is 21-10-1 ATS in its last 32 home openers.

    11) Why did the Houston Texans trade DeAndre Hopkins? Isn’t it important to keep your best players, especially when your young QB is growing into being an elite player? Going to be a lot of heat on Texans’ management if they regress on offense this season.

    My high school Chemistry teacher was Bill Warner (no relation to Kurt); he was a great teacher, also a licensed pilot, a basketball referee, a brilliant guy. When something made no sense to him, he would call it “nonsensical” He is the only person I’ve ever heard use that word.

    To me, the Texans trading Hopkins was nonsensical.

    10) No NFL head coach has ever won Super Bowls with two different teams.

    Only two guys (Bill Parcells, Mike Holmgren) made it to a Super Bowl with another team, after winning a title somewhere else.

    9) NFL supposedly wants more scoring in their games, but two huge offensive plays in the last minute of close games were nullified Sunday by offensive pass interference calls. If you want more points to be scored, why would you point the officials towards calling more offensive PI?

    Bengals scored a TD with 0:06 left that was negated; Dallas completed a long pass that would’ve set up a game-tying field goal. Wide receivers pushing off has been overlooked for decades; Michael Irvin is in the Hall of Fame because of that.

    The NFL makes their rules, the officials just enforce them; I don’t understand this apparent change in direction.

    8) Last 16 years, Cleveland Browns are 0-15-1 in their season openers; they threw 10 passes to Odell Beckham Sunday in Baltimore, but completed only three of them.

    7) Mike D’Antoni’s NBA coaching record: 16 years, 672-527 in regular season games, 54-56 in playoff games. If he still wants to coach, hard to believe someone won’t hire him.

    6) Denver Nuggets are first NBA team ever to have four straight playoff series go 7 games.

    5) Overlooked with all the football Sunday was Alec Mills throwing a no-hitter for the Cubs in Milwaukee, in his 15th career start.

    Earlier this season, Lucas Giolito threw a no-hitter for the White Sox; this is the first season ever that both Chicago franchises had a pitcher throw a no-hitter in the same season.

    4) Over the last 21 years, Washington Redskins have started 13 different quarterbacks in their season opener. This isn’t a good thing.

    3) Big day for Mets fans; the Wilpon family and Saul Katz have agreed to sell the Mets to billionaire hedge fund manager Steve Cohen, which has to help the team a lot. The Wilpons were horrendous owners.

    Trivia: If you watch Billions on Showtime, Damian Lewis’ character Bobby Axelrod is loosely based on Cohen. He is a rich guy, really rich.

    2) Atlanta Braves signed Pablo Sandoval to a minor league deal, after the Giants released him. Sandoval could be a DH for the Braves down the stretch.

    1) If the baseball playoffs started today (they don’t):
    AL East: Tampa Bay, Toronto
    AL Central: Chicago, Minnesota
    AL West: Oakland, Houston
    AL wild cards: Cleveland, New York

    NL East: Atlanta, Miami
    NL Central: Chicago, St Louis
    NL West: Los Angeles, San Diego
    NL wild cards: Philadelphia, San Francisco

    NBA public betting, line movement September 15
    Patrick Everson

    Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers aim to avoid a big collapse against Michael Porter Jr. and the Nuggets in Game 7 Tuesday. The SuperBook opened Los Angeles -6. 5 and moved to -7.5.

    After a rare day off, NBA betting odds are on the board and getting action for a pair of Tuesday playoff games. The Los Angeles Clippers hope to finally put away the Denver Nuggets in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals, preceded by Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics.

    The SuperBook provided insights on NBA opening lines and early line movement, sharp money and public betting for Tuesday’s matchups.

    NBA line movement

    Denver already rallied from down 3-1 once in the NBA playoffs, beating the Utah Jazz in seven games, and will try to do it again in a 9 p.m. ET tipoff against Los Angeles. In Game 7 Sunday, the Nuggets trailed by 16 at halftime, but blew out the Clippers 64-35 in the second half to post a 111-98 victory.

    For Game 7, The SuperBook opened the Clippers -6.5 and moved to -7.5, where the line remained through Monday night. The total opened at 208, dropped to 206.5, then rebounded to 207.5.

    Meanwhile, Miami has been on a tear the entire playoffs, going 8-1 SU and ATS while sweeping the Indiana Pacers, then dumping the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks in five games. So once again, the Heat are well-rested, having not played since Sept. 8. Boston had to duke it out over seven games with the Toronto Raptors, clinching the series with a 92-87 win Friday.

    The SuperBook opened the Celtics -1.5 and moved to -2 for a couple of hours over the weekend, then went back to -1.5. The total opened at 211.5 and is down to 209.5 for a 6:30 p.m. ET start.

    NBA public betting

    The Consensus shows point-spread bettors have faith that the Nuggets can at least cover, with Denver getting 63 percent of early picks against the Clippers. And through Monday night, 76 percent of picks were on the Over, with the bulk of those picks on the current total of 207.5.

    Heat-Celtics was drawing two-way play in the Consensus, with Boston attracting 52 percent of picks and the Under getting 57 percent of picks.

    Game 7 Odds: Nuggets vs. Clippers
    Michael Crosson

    The second round of the NBA Playoffs in the Western Conference will conclude on Tuesday night as the No. 3 Denver Nuggets will meet in a decisive Game 7 matchup against the No. 2 Los Angeles Clippers.

    Betting Resources

    Matchup: Western Conference Game 7
    Second Round: Series tied 3-3
    Venue: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex
    Location: Orlando, Florida
    Date: Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2020
    Time: 9:00 p.m. ET
    TV: ESPN

    The Nuggets have outscored the Clippers by a combined 47 points in the second-half of the last two games in their 2nd round series. (AP)

    Line Movements

    The Denver Nuggets, who are no strangers to win-or-go-home contests in the bubble, will head into their third consecutive game facing elimination as seven and a half-point underdogs against the second-seeded Los Angeles Clippers, despite knocking off Doc Rivers’ team in back-to-back matchups prior to Tuesday night.

    The ‘over-under’ for Tuesday’s matchup opened around OU 211.5 at most books, but we have seen that number take steep fall down to OU 207.5 as tickets continue to rain in on the ‘under’ – typical for almost any Game 7 affair.

    Spread: Los Angeles -7.5
    Money-Line: Los Angeles -320 Denver +260
    Total: 207.5
    Updated Series Price: Los Angeles -310, Denver +260

    Game 6 Recap

    It feels like the Nuggets have been on the ropes since Game 4 of this series, but they just keep on putting on outstanding displays of resiliency time-after-time again.

    In Game 6, it was on the shoulders of the Joker, Nikola Jokic (34 points, 14 rebounds, 7 assists), who led his team back from a 16-point halftime deficit to stun the Clippers, 111-98 and force a Game 7 on Sunday afternoon.

    Denver scored a modest 64 points in the second half of Game 6, which is the kind of performance they will likely need to compete with LAC in the series finale.

    However, the real story was full blown shooting collapse of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George on Sunday, as the all-star duo shot a combined 6-for-21 from the field in the final two stanzas of the Clippers’ loss, contributing heavily to the LAC’s 10-for-38 as a unit.

    The Claw says his team just went “cold” down the stretch of Sunday afternoon’s contest – he will hope for him and his team to heat back up again before Tuesday night’s tilt.

    Game 6 Betting Results

    Bettors backing the Clippers for the second straight game got another rough taste of reality as L.A. built a big lead before collapsing again.

    Denver outscored Los Angeles by 29 points in the second-half and that followed the Nuggets outscoring the Clips by 18 points in the second-half of Game 5.

    Outcome:
    Nuggets 111 Clippers 98

    Game: Nuggets Win, Nuggets Cover (+8.5), Under (214.5)
    First Quarter: Clippers Win (34-26), Clippers Cover (+3), Over (54.5)
    First-Half: Clippers Win (63-47), Clippers Cover (-4.5), Over (108.5)
    Second-Half: Nuggets Win (64-35), Nuggets Cover (-0.5), Under (105.5)

    Denver Betting Outlook

    Inside the Stats


    Bubble: 10-11 SU, 13-8 ATS, 13-7-1 O/U
    Playoffs: 7-6 SU, 9-4 ATS, 5-7-1 O/U

    They say, “The most dangerous lead in sports is a 2-0 lead,” but it is starting to seem like the Nuggets prefer being down 3-1, as Mike Malone’s team has now officially rallied back from its second straight two-game deficit in these playoffs to force another Game 7.

    Either that, or they just are very fond of seven-game series, as Tuesday night will mark the fourth straight playoff series for Denver that has extended to its seventh contest.

    The first of those four series took place last year and ended with the Nuggets advancing past the seventh-seeded Spurs in an exhausting opening round series to kick off last year’s playoffs, which ultimately led to Jokic and company running out of steam in their second round series finale against the Blazers.

    Consecutive seven-game playoff series are known to be physically AND emotionally draining for athletes – especially in an environment like the Disney bubble. Tuesday night should be a great test to see what this young Denver team is really made of.

    Los Angeles Betting Outlook

    Inside the Stats


    Bubble: 12-8 SU, 12-8 ATS, 10-9-1 O/U
    Playoffs: 7-5 SU, 6-6 ATS, 5-6-1 O/U

    Clippers fans are being driven up all wall by their team in this series and I cannot blame them, as Los Angeles has been in a position to close out the Nuggets in each of its last two contests and has failed in both.

    Now LAC finds itself in a Game 7 matchup, squaring off with Murray and Jokic, who both have the potential to get as hot as anybody in the league and win a basketball game.

    The Clippers are the overwhelming favorite to win this series finale and they should be based off their superior talent-level and offensive firepower.

    Just ask Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz though – This is just not a spot you prefer to be in if you are Coach Doc Rivers right now trying to establish yourself as a Western Conference powerhouse.

    Key Injuries

    Denver


    SF Vlatko Cancar: Foot - Game Time Decision
    SF Will Barton: Knee - Out

    Los Angeles

    None

    Nothing new to add onto the injury report for Game 7 as Vlatko Cancar and Will Barton remain the only players expected to be absent from either side on Tuesday night – the only thing questionable heading into this series finale is what a three-game implosion would mean moving forward for a Clippers team that was originally supposed to be destined for a blockbuster LA vs LA Western Conference Finals.

    **********

    Armadillo: Thursday's Den: 13 athletes who excelled at more than one sport

    (listed alphabetically)
    — Danny Ainge— Played 14 years in the NBA, after a great career at BYU. He also hit .220 in 211 games over three years for the Toronto Blue Jays.

    — Jim Brown— One of the best running backs in NFL history, he led the NFL in rushing in 8 of his 9 seasons. Brown also played basketball, ran track, and was a great lacrosse player while in college at Syracuse.

    — Wilt Chamberlain— Scored 31,419 points in his NBA career; once scored 100 points in a game- he averaged over 30 ppg for his career. He preferred track in high school, high jumping, long jumping, running the quarter-mile and half-mile events while also throwing the shot put.

    When he was in the NBA, Wilt got annoyed that he was criticized for shooting too much so the next season (1967-68) he led the league in assists.

    — Bob Hayes— Played wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys for 11 years; he also won two gold medals in track at the 1964 Olympics. Hayes caught 371 passes for 20 yards/catch in his NFL career, scoring 73 touchdowns.

    — Bo Jackson— Was a great running back at Auburn, and played 38 games for the Raiders, averaging 5.4 yards/carry. He played eight years in the major leagues, hitting 141 homers- he played the last two years with an artificial hip.

    — Michael Jordan— Not much to add here; won a national title at North Carolina, six NBA titles with the Chicago Bulls, and out of nowhere, he hit .202 for the AA Birmingham Barons in 1994, as an outfielder, during his sabbatical from the NBA.

    Hitting .202 doesn’t sound like much, but I was an official scorer for two years at the AA level; there are guys who were career baseball players who didn’t hit .200 at that level. Jordan also stole 30 bases that season.

    — Kenny Lofton— Played 17 years in the big leagues, with a .372 on-base %age and 622 stolen bases— hell of a ballplayer, a 6-time All Star. Lofton also played college basketball at Arizona; he is one of only two people EVER to play in the Final Four and World Series.

    — Nate Robinson— Played 11 years in the NBA, he won the Slam Dunk title three times even though he is only 5-9; he scored 11 ppg for his professional career. Robinson originally went to U of Washington on a football scholarship; he played football for the Huskies as a freshman, but gave football up after that season.

    — Bill Russell— Played 13 seasons in the NBA, won 11 titles, lost in the finals another year. San Francisco won consecutive NCAA titles with Russell as their center in 1955-56. Russell also was a high jumper at USF; at one time, he was ranked as the 7th-best high jumper in the world, but had to choose between track and basketball as far as the Olympics went- he chose basketball.

    — Deion Sanders— Played 14 years in the NFL for five teams; he picked off 53 passes in his pro career, running back nine of them for touchdowns. He also played baseball, playing nine years in the major leagues, hitting .263 for four teams, with 186 stolen bases.

    — Tim Stoddard— First person ever to play in a Final Four and a World Series; he was a starting forward on NC State’s championship team in 1974. He also pitched in the major leagues for 13 years, winning a World Series ring with the ’83 Orioles. He also got a hit in his only at-bat in a World Series game.

    — Charlie Ward— He won the 1993 Heisman Trophy, leading Florida State to their first-ever national title on the gridiron. Ward also played 11 years in the NBA for three teams, mostly the Knicks, scoring 6.3 ppg for his career.

    — Dave Winfield— Played both baseball/basketball for the Minnesota Gophers; his college basketball coach was Bill Musselman, who later coached in the NBA. Winfield was also drafted by the NFL’s Vikings, but he never played college football.

    Winfield was a great baseball player; he played 22 years in the majors, hit .283 with 465 career homers and an on-base %age of .353.

    The Heat’s impressive playoff work aside, DraftKings opened Game 2 at Celtics -2 and moved to -2.5 early Wednesday. Tipoff is at 7 p.m. ET Thursday.

    NBA betting odds are back on the board after a one-day respite, with Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals on the Thursday playoff schedule. The red-hot Miami Heat aim to take a 2-0 lead in their best-of-7 series against the Boston Celtics.

    DraftKings Sportsbook provided insights on NBA opening lines and early line movement, sharp money and public betting for Thursday’s matchup.

    NBA line movement

    Miami is a scorching 9-1 SU and ATS in the NBA playoffs, including a 117-114 overtime victory against Boston in Game 1 on Tuesday. The Heat’s impressive playoff work aside, DraftKings opened Game 2 at Celtics -2 and moved to -2.5 early Wednesday. Tipoff is at 7 p.m. ET Thursday.

    NBA public betting

    Game 2 Odds: Heat vs. Celtics
    Michael Crosson

    The Eastern Conference Finals will continue Thursday from the NBA Bubble in Orlando, Florida and the Boston Celtics will look to rebound after dropping an overtime setback to the Miami Heat in Game 1 on Tuesday.

    Betting Resources

    Matchup: Eastern Conference Finals Game 2
    Series: Miami Heat lead 1-0

    Date: Thursday, Sept. 17, 2020
    Time: 7:00 p.m. ET
    TV: ESPN

    Miami Heat rookie Tyler Herro almost recorded a triple-double in Game 1, finishing with 12 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. (AP)

    Line Movements

    The red-hot Miami Heat pulled off the 117-114 overtime upset in Game 1, but that has not swayed the oddsmakers prior to the second contest of this series as the Celtics still head into Game 2 as two and a half-point favorites, already trailing Miami 1-0.

    It has been a bad month to be an ‘over’ bettor in the 2020 NBA Playoffs so far, as the ‘under’ has cashed in 19 out of 26 post-season games inside the bubble.

    Game 1 between the Celtics and Heat was not one of those games though, as these teams combined for 212 points in regulation – securing ‘over 209’ before they tacked on almost 20 more in the OT stanza. The line for Thursday night’s tilt fallen a little bit though, siting at a tempting line of OU 208.5.

    Spread: Boston -2.5
    Money-Line: Boston -140, Miami +120
    Total: 208.5
    Updated Series Price: Miami -150, Boston +130

    Game 1 Recap

    It sure is a shame that there are no fans present to witness these grueling playoff battles in the bubble, because there is no doubt Boston’s TD Garden would have been rocking for Game 1 on Tuesday night.

    It could have even been just what some of the Celtics’ young stars needed to push them over their competitive edge in overtime during their first battle with Miami in these Eastern Conference Finals.

    No complaints from Brad Stevens’ corner though as Jayson Tatum and Marcus Smart combined for 56 points on 45% shooting in their 2020 ECF debuts – putting their team in a reasonable position to extend/win the game by closing the gap to a two-point differential in OT with just 12 ticks remaining on the clock.

    Tatum had his game-tying dunk attempt emphatically denied at the rim by Bam Adebayo though, earning Erik Spoelstra’s team its first victory in an Eastern Conference Finals matchup since the LeBron James years (2014).

    Game 1 Betting Results

    Outcome:
    Heat 117 Celtics 114 (OT)

    Game: Heat Win, Heat Cover (+2), Over 2019
    First Quarter: Celtics Win (26-18), Celtics Cover (-0.5), Under 54.5
    First-Half: Tied (55-55), Heat Cover (+0.5), Over 108
    Second-Half: Heat Win (62-59), Heat Cover (+1.5), Over 103.5

    Heat Betting Outlook

    Inside the Stats


    Overall: 12-6 SU, 12-6 ATS, 8-9-1 O/U
    Bubble: 9-1 SU, 9-1 ATS, 4-6 O/U

    Miami came out of the gates flat and it looked like the Celtics might run away with the opening game of this series in the early-goings when they jumped out to a 26-18 first quarter lead. However, that shifted rather quickly as the Heat lit up the scoreboard in the second stanza for 37 points on 68.2 percent shooting to close out the half.

    The Heat managed to post another insane offensive column of basketball in the fourth quarter of Game 1, racking up 35 points on 71.4 percent shooting to force OT in the final stanza of the contest.

    The Heat needed every bit of the 72 points they dropped in the second and fourth quarters to force overtime in series opener, PLUS and insane block from Adebayo at the buzzer to seal the deal.

    Not to rain on Miami’s parade here, but they cannot afford to ride the roller coaster in this series like they did in Game 1. The Heat need to string together four good quarters of basketball in Game 2 if they want to take a two-game advantage over a Boston team that has been devastatingly consistent this season. And somebody tell Duncan Robinson to stay out of foul trouble, holy cow.

    Celtics Betting Outlook

    Inside the Stats


    Overall: 13-6 SU, 11-7-1 ATS, 6-11-2 O/U
    Bubble: 8-4 SU, 8-4 ATS, 3-9 O/U

    No need to panic if you are a Celtics series bettor following their loss on Tuesday night, but if Boston fails to get over the hump again in Game 2 then it might be time to admit that Jimmy Butler and company are just on a magical run and may need to avoid betting against them at all costs for the near future.

    I do not believe that is the kind of situation we are dealing with here though, as the heroes in Game 1 for Miami were Goran Dragic and Jae Crowder who went for a combined 51 points in the contest on 60% shooting.

    The Dragic-Crowder-Butler trio shot a combined 10 of 18 from downtown in the contest, and I have a tough time believing they are going to be able to replicate those numbers over the course of a series.

    I think Boston ultimately comes out on top in this series, but there is no doubt the Heat will make me eat those words if their role-players keep burying 3’s at a 55% clip the rest of the way.

    Key Injuries

    Miami


    PF Chris Silva: Pelvis - Out

    Boston

    SG Javonte Green: Knee - Game Time Decision
    SF Gordon Hayward: Ankle - Game Time Decision

    Celtics forward, Gordon Hayward, has been upgraded to a “game-time decision” for Boston’s Game 2 tilt with the Heat on Thursday night.

    The Butler product has not played since injuring his ankle in Game 1 of their opening round playoff series with the 76ers – his return should add some much needed size and scoring depth to Celtic rotation moving forward in this series.

    Armadillo: Friday's Den: Wrapping up a busy Thursday

    13) White Sox 4, Twins 3— Chicago clinches its first playoff berth since 2008.

    6th inning of this game, Josh Donaldson was carping about balls/strikes during his at-bat, then he hits a home run to put the Twins up 3-2. When he rounds the bases, he kicks dirt on home plate as he scores as the ump kicks him out. Not good.

    Twins are fighting like hell to make the playoffs; you can’t get kicked out of a one-run game.

    12) Dodgers were the first team to clinch a playoff berth; they’re 35-15 this season.

    11) Browns 35, Bengals 30:
    — Burrow was 37-61 for 316 yards, most passes a rookie has ever completed in a game.
    — Bengals had 30 first downs, converted 8-18 on 3rd down.
    — Last three years, Cincy is 15-8 ATS as a road underdog; over is 11-2 in their last 13 road openers.
    — Bengals went 5-5 going for it on 4th down.

    — Chubb ran for 124 yards, two TD’s for the Browns.
    — Cleveland scored TD’s on three of first four drives.
    — Browns allowed 68 points in splitting their first two games.

    10) Sean McVay is in his 4th year as an NFL head coach; he went to college at Miami OH, but he is four years younger than another Miami alum, Ben Roethlisberger, who is still playing ball. McVay is 34, Big Ben is 38.

    9) When the Clippers ousted Dallas in the first round of the playoffs, they shot 47% on 3-point shots from the corner, which is exceptional.

    Problem is, they got to Game 7 against Denver in the 2nd round and went 0-12 on those corner jumpers behind the arc. 0-12 doesn’t butter the biscuit.

    8) An adventurous gambler wagered $200,000 on the Lakers to win the NBA title; if the Lakers win it all, the bettor pockets $121,212.

    7) Heat 106, Celtics 101 (Miami leads 2-0)
    — Miami was down 13 at the half, but held Boston to 41 points in 2nd half, after Celtics scored 60 in first half.
    — Miami was +11 (20-9) in turnovers.
    — Crowder/Robinson took 24 shots; 22 of them were 3’s.

    6) This weekend’s Mariners-Padres series was moved to San Diego, because of the poor air quality in Seattle.

    5) Angels’ rookie 1B Jared Walsh has scored a run/driven in a run in nine consecutive games, the longest streak like that by a rookie in baseball history.

    4) Saw a film clip Thursday of Colorado Rockies’ manager Bud Black giving up Reggie Jackson’s 500th home run in 1984, when Jackson was playing for the Angels. Black was a good pitcher, with a 121-116 career record.

    Angels’ manager then was John McNamara; two years later, he was Boston’s manager when they lost the World Series in seven games to the Mets. He was also Jackson’s manager in Oakland in 1970, when Jackson got involved in a squabble with owner Charlie Finley, the team unraveled and McNamara got fired.

    3) How would you like to be the guy who works for the Diamondbacks who advised them to sign Madison Bumgarner to a 5-year, $85M contract? You’d have to be a little bit queasy about you job.

    Bumgarner is only 31, but he’s got a lot of miles on that arm; he’s thrown 1,877 regular season innings and 101 more in the postseason. This year, he is 0-4, 8.53 in seven starts. Not good.

    2) Get well soon to Texas Rangers’ TV analyst CJ Nitkowski, who tested positive for COVID; Ranger games are fun to listen to- Nitkowski is a good analyst.

    1) If you baseball playoffs started today (they don’t):
    AL East: Tampa Bay, New York
    AL Central: Chicago, Minnesota
    AL West: Oakland, Houston
    AL wild cards: Cleveland, Toronto

    Game 1 Odds: Nuggets vs. Lakers
    Michael Crosson

    The NBA Western Conference Finals will tip off on Friday with the No. 3 Denver Nuggets meeting the No. 1 Los Angeles Lakers in Game 1 of their best-of-seven series.

    The Rockets appeared to have something special saved up for the Lakers following Houston’s 112-97 win in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals against LAL, but that was short lived as LeBron James rallied his guys to four straight victories, securing the first Western Conference Finals berth of 2020.

    Denver’s route to the Western Conference Finals was a little more bumpy than the top-seeded Lakers’ path, as The Nuggets have been forced to play six elimination games inside the bubble already and have came away with six gutsy victories in those contests.

    Betting Odds - Nuggets vs. Lakers

    After up catching on a much needed five days of rest, the Lakers head into their first matchup with Denver as seven-point, despite being 0-2 SU in series openers inside the bubble.

    The oddsmakers are not messing around with the ‘over-under’ in this series after watching 20 out of 28 post-season games fall ‘under’ the total inside the bubble so far – setting the line for Friday’s contest at a relatively low bar of OU 212.

    The Nuggets are currently listed as ‘+400 underdogs’ to advance to the NBA Finals, but if you are looking to place a wager on Denver in this matchup, you might be better off waiting until the Lakers take a 3-1 lead because that is when Jamal Murray and company seem to do their best work.

    Aug. 10, 2020: Los Angeles 124 vs. Denver 121, Lakers -5, Over 223.5

    Dec. 22, 2019: Denver 128 at Los Angeles 104, Nuggets +2.5, Over 208.5
    Dec. 3, 2019: Los Angeles 104 at Denver 96, Lakers +2.5, Under 208

    Los Angeles held a 3-1 straight up advantage against Denver so far this seasonr, but the Nuggets have covered a hypothetical seven-point spread in three of those contests.

    Prior to the NBA shutdown, the Nuggets did a great job defending the high-powered Lakers, holding them to just 106 points per game.

    When these teams met up in the bubble though, the game quickly turned into a track meet as Kyle Kuzma went for 25 points on 68% shooting in the LAL’s 124-121 victory.

    I believe the best way to get a feel for what kind of game we are going to see on Friday night, is by examining the overtime matchup in Denver between these teams back in February.

    Nobody has had an answer for Murray defensively so far in these playoffs and the Lakers certainly did not have one for him back in the regular season when he went for 32 points on 13 for 25 shooting from the field – but it still was not enough to take down LAL, as LeBron teamed up with Anthony Davis and bullied their way to a combined 65 points to seal the victory.

    Jokic was good in the contest too, tallying 22 points, 11 rebounds, and 6 assists to complement Murray’s electric outing, but again, it was not nearly enough to get them over the hump against the Lakers’ star-packed lineup.

    Aside from Denver’s 128-104 victory back around Christmas-time, these teams have played each other pretty close and I have a feeling Game 1 of this series is going to end up in a similar fashion.

    Denver Betting Outlook

    Inside the Stats


    Bubble: 11-11 SU, 13-10 ATS, 13-8-1 O/U
    Playoffs: 8-6 SU, 10-4 ATS, 5-8-1 O/U

    The Nuggets are riding high following their Game 7 victory over the Clippers on Tuesday night, thanks to another insane 40-point outing from Murray (57% FG) to close out the second seed in the West.

    It appeared most fans just assumed the Clippers would come out victorious in the series SOMEHOW, but Denver ended up making a mockery of Doc Rivers’ team by the end of the contest – highlighted by the Joker tossing a backwards pass over his head to a cutting Murray, already boasting a 15-point lead in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter.

    Jokic and Murray combined for 56 points, 26 rebounds, and 18 assists on 51.3% shooting for the Nuggets in Game 7, and they will get a crack at a LAL team that really struggles to defend the perimeter at times.

    If Mike Malone is going to continuously get that type of production from his young stars, there is no doubt the Nuggets could make LeBron and his crew sweat out a few extra games in this series, especially with the shooting cold-spells LA has been experiencing at times inside the bubble..

    Los Angeles Betting Outlook

    Inside the Stats


    Bubble: 11-7 SU, 8-10 ATS, 7-11 O/U
    Playoffs: 8-2 SU, 7-3 ATS, 3-7 O/U

    This matchup is really interesting to me because throughout the course of this year the Lakers have been the kings of “being caught off guard” by teams, and the Nuggets appeared to just lull the Clippers to sleep and completely catch them off guard in their previous series after falling in an 0-2 hole against the other team hailing from Los Angeles.

    I am a little worried about something similar happening to Frank Vogel’s team in this series. The hype all year surrounded the two teams from Los Angeles potentially squaring off in the Western Conference Finals against each other, and now that the Clippers have been upset by Denver, it seems a lot of the buzz surrounding this series has faded.

    The Lakers will win this series and likely this year’s NBA Finals, but do not be surprised if the Nuggets come out of the gates playing with an unmatchable amount of energy in Game 1 and put the pressure on LAL early.

    Key Injuries

    Denver


    SF Vlatko Cancar: Foot - Out
    SF Will Barton: Knee - Out

    Los Angeles

    SG Dion Waiters: Groin - Game Time Decision

    Dion Waiters would probably hate me for saying this – but nothing significant on the injury report heading into the first game of this series.

    It looks like there is a chance Denver could get Vlatko Cancar back before the end of this series, but other than that, minute rotations should look pretty similar to how they have looked in previous series for these teams.

    **********

    Armadillo: Sunday's Den: Wrapping up a sports Saturday

    13) Louisiana 34, Georgia State 31 OT— Ragin’ Cajuns sprung an upset at Iowa State last week; but had to fight like hell to avoid being upset here- they trailed 21-7 midway thru the third quarter.

    Louisiana outgained Georgia State by 100 yards, but converted only 3-14 on third down. Both teams ran the ball for 200+ yards.

    12) Back in the day when ESPN first started, 1980 or so, one of the first leagues that let ESPN show its basketball games was the Sun Belt Conference. ESPN needs to show the Sun Belt some love and give their games more airtime. Besides, Sun Belt football is at a pretty high level and is fun to watch.

    By the way, and I’m rambling here because its 2:30am and Korean baseball is on, but in 1980, Sun Belt basketball included VCU, South Alabama, Charlotte, South Florida, among others. Some of those teams are lot higher on the food chain now, but it is still a good league, and ESPN needs to give the league its own weekly time slot.

    11) Dodgers 6, Rockies 1— In his career, LA’s Clayton Kershaw has started 43 games against Colorado; the Dodgers are 32-11 in those games.

    10) Sounds like both the NBA/NHL might not start next season until January; college basketball is rumored to be starting November 25, which means the first part of November is going to pretty desolate for sports, except for football on the weekends.

    Good thing I have a very large stack of books to read; you’ll be getting some book reports in November, and lots and lots of football stats.

    9) Navy 27, Tulane 24— Midshipmen were down 24-0 at halftime, after losing their opener 55-3 at home, so this was an emotional win for them after a huge second half.

    8) Astros’ P Justin Verlander will have Tommy John surgery, will miss next season, then he’ll be a 39-year old free agent.

    7) Miami 47, Louisville 34— Miami’s kicker made 48 and 57-yard field goals, which means we’ll be seeing him kick on Sundays fairly soon. Hurricanes were +3 in turnovers.

    6) Best wishes to Florida State football coach Mike Norvell, who tested positive for COVID and is on the shelf for a while. Seminoles play Miami next week, leaving deputy head coach Chris Thomsen as the interim coach.

    Thomsen was the head coach at Abilene Christian from 2005-11; he spent the past three years coaching the offensive line at TCU.

    5) NC State 45, Wake Forest 42— Deacons stormed back from down 35-21 in third quarter to lead 42-38, but State scored with 5:51 left and held on for the win.

    4) Lot of carping on social media about individual awards and who certain people voted for; to me, this is a total waste of time. I don’t give a rat’s ass about individual awards, other than who gets into the Halls of Fame. Too much drama about these NBA awards; its a team game, people.

    3) Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire abruptly retired Saturday for health reasons; he has a career record of 1,068-1,039 in regular season games. Lot of people posted stuff on social media about how well-liked and well-respected Gardenhire is. We wish him well.

    2) Celtics 117, Heat 106 (Miami leads 2-1)
    — Four starters scored 20+ points for the Celtics.
    — Only six Celtics played double figure minutes.
    — Miami was 12-44 behind the arc; no bueno.

    Armadillo: Tuesday's six-pack

    Six interesting spreads for Week 3 NFL games:
    — Miami @ Jacksonville (-3, 47.5)
    — Las Vegas @ New England (-6.5, 47)
    — LA Rams @ Buffalo (-2.5, 47)
    — Houston @ Pittsburgh (-3.5, 45)
    — San Francisco (-4.5, 41) @ NJ Giants
    — Tennessee (-2.5, 47.5) @ Minnesota

    Please wear a mask when you go out.


    **********

    Armadillo: Tuesday's Den: Nobody asked me, but…….

    13) Las Vegas 34, Saints 24
    — Penalties: Saints 10-129 yards, Raiders 3-13 yards
    — Saints averaged 7.4 yards/play, converted 7-11 on 3rd down.
    — New Orleans lost eight of its last ten road openers.

    — Raiders converted 16-28 on 3rd down, scored 68 points in winning their first two games.
    — Las Vegas ran 76 plays, the Saints only 57, but were outgained by 49 yards.
    — AFC West teams are 5-0-1 ATS outside their division.

    12) Raiders have spent $52.6M of their salary cap on their offensive line, the most of any team in the league.

    When the Raiders’ move to Las Vegas was approved by the league, the vote was 31-1; for some unknown reason, Miami Dolphins were the team that voted against the move.

    11) Being a head coach involves having both onions and a feel for your team.

    3rd quarter Sunday, Rams lead 21-16 at Philly, 6:51 left in 3rd quarter. LA has 4th and a foot on their own 29, after intercepting a Wentz pass in the end zone on the Eagles’ previous drive. Most coaches, maybe 90%, maybe higher, punt the ball there.

    McVay has the Rams go for it, Goff sneaks for the first down, and Rams go down and kick a FG on a drive that went 68 yards on 16 plays and gave his defense a nice rest.

    10) NFL injury issues:
    — Giants’ RB Saquon Barkley is out for the year.
    — Panthers’ RB Christian McCaffrey is out 4-6 weeks.
    — Broncos’ QB Drew Lock is out for 3-5 weeks.

    9) With Lock out for a while, Jeff Driskel figures to be backed up by Brett Rypien, who played college ball at Boise State but has to make his NFL debut.

    8) So far this season, NFC West reams are 6-0 ATS outside their division; AFC West teams are 5-0-1 ATS. NFC East teams are 1-5.

    7) Deion Sanders is going to be the football coach at Jackson State, where his son will undoubtedly follow him to play quarterback.

    Shedeur Sanders has verbally committed to play at Florida Atlantic, but that’s about to change; the kid is an accurate passer, a 4-star recruit. He played on ESPN a few weeks ago, and looked pretty good. Deion Sanders is the offensive coordinator for his son’s high school team.

    6) They were talking on a ballgame the other night how hitters are no longer allowed to watch videos in between their at bats, and it has screwed up some hitters, who are used to doing that and need it to adjust their approach. Thank the Astros and their garbage can for that.

    5) ESPN had Ian Happ miked while he played the outfield Sunday night; this bothers me, it is an intrusion on the game. Alex Rodriguez actually was busting Happ’s chops because he roots for the Cleveland Browns. Who in the commissioner’s office thinks BS like that is a good idea?

    4) I’m thinking that if the expanded baseball playoffs that start next week are popular with fans, they’ll become a permanent part of the major leagues, in combination with a slightly shorter regular season (154 games?)

    One thing I DO NOT want to see ever are automated umpires for balls/strikes; no thank you.

    3) 203 ballplayers have made their major league debut this season, 18 of them play for the Miami Marlins. Someone’s going to write an interesting book about this unusual season.

    2) Of the 30 current major league managers, Colorado’s Bud Black is the only one who was a pitcher in the major leagues. 10 of the 30 skippers were catchers in their playing days.

    1) If the baseball playoffs started today (they don’t):
    AL East: Tampa Bay, New York
    AL Central: Chicago, Minnesota
    AL West: Oakland, Houston
    AL wild cards: Cleveland, Toronto

    NL East: Atlanta, Miami
    NL Central: Chicago, St Louis
    NL West: Los Angeles, San Diego
    NL wild cards: Philadelphia, Cincinnati
