Sunday's betting tips: Heat hungover after LeBron's bash?

Who’s hot

- Washington Redskins are 6-1 ATS in their last seven vs. NFC East.

- Charlotte Bobcats are 9-3-1 ATS in the last 13 meetings with the Heat.

- Nashville Predators are 6-1 in their last seven home games.

Who’s not

- Dallas Cowboys are 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall.

- Villanova Wildcats are 1-10 ATS in their last 11 road games.

- Washington Wizards are 0-4 ATS in their last four games overall.

Key stat

6-0 – The Baltimore Ravens can finish a perfect 6-0 inside the AFC North for the first time in franchise history with a win over the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday. Baltimore is a 1-point road favorite and has gone 3-1-1 ATS versus division rivals this season.

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Mike Conley, Memphis Grizzlies – the Grizzlies point guard injured his ankle against the Thunder Wednesday and is expected to miss Sunday’s game against the Bulls. Conley had 11 points, seven assists and three rebounds in the season opener versus San Antonio.

Game of the Day

Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants (-3, 47.5)

Notable quotable

“This is for the No. 1 seed, so we’re going out there and giving it all we’ve got for four quarters.’’ – Patriots WR Wes Welker talking about clinching the AFC No. 1 seed and home-field advantage in the playoffs in Sunday's game against Buffalo.

Notes and tips

- LeBron James is hosting a New Year’s Eve/Birthday party Saturday night, attended by a select 50 guest including teammates Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Miami hosts the Charlotte Bobcats Sunday and could be a little worse for wear after a big night out on the town.

- The Atlanta Falcons will be watching the Detroit-Green Bay game with great interest – and bettors should too. If the Lions lose to the Packers in their 1 p.m. ET kickoff, then the Falcons have a chance to take the No. 5 seed in the NFC playoffs. If Detroit wins, Atlanta would be stuck in the No. 6 seed and Sunday’s game wouldn’t matter, leaving the team to rest most of its starters.

- Look for a very physical game between Cincinnati and Pitt Sunday. Panthers coach Jamie Dixon is fed up with his team’s lack of intensity and toughness on defense after back-to-back losses and has preached physicality in practice this week. The Bearcats aren’t afraid to throw their weight around, which could mean a lot of scoring from the free-throw line – stopping the clock and making the over a tempting play.

Armadillo: Sunday's six-pack

Six most popular picks and six least popular picks in Hilton handicapping contest, which has 517 contestants, all of whom who pick five NFL games a week against the spread. They put up $1,500 each, so these are serious handicappers........

6) Miami Dolphins 93
5) Houston Texans 96
4) Carolina Panthers 126
3) Pittsburgh Steelers 134
2) New Jersey Giants 159
1) Kansas City Chiefs 176

27) St Louis Rams 40
T28) Arizona Cardinals 34
T28) Jacksonville Jaguars 34
30) Tampa Bay Bucs 28
31) Chicago Bears 27
32) New Orleans Saints 21


******************


Armadillo: Sunday's List of 13: Wishing you all a Happy New Year.....

13) Idea for reality TV—NFL Films should follow Adrian Peterson as he rehabs his injured knee. Average fans like myself have no idea how much work he has ahead of him. We’d have lot more respect for these athletes if we could see the work they put in to get back on the field.

12) Wish the NFL would take the radios out of players’ helmets; coaches get to coach six days a week, preparing the players to play. Gameday should be the players’ day, where they do what they’ve been trained to do. Radios in the helmets makes the players too robotic.

11) According to ESPN.com, Miami Heat’s Big 3 earns a total of $635,537 every single game; Heat rookie Norris Cole will earn $861,220…..all year.

10) San Diego State is going to play football in the Big East, so shouldn’t they have to change the name of the league?

9) Having NFL Network, its fun to get reacquainted with NFL Films and its great work. Still though, my favorite NFL Films moment was 30 years ago, when Marv Levy calls an official who is an old schoolmate of his an “……overofficious jerk.” Tremendous television.

8) Raven-Bengal game Sunday is a sellout, meaning game will be televised locally, so if it’s a bad weather day, they’re still going to wind up a lot of no-shows.

7) A’s trading closer Bailey makes perfect sense,s ince whats the point of a cruddy team paying a good closer. Not like Oakland will have a lot of leads to protect the next 2-3 summers.

6) We need a Chick-fil-A and a Steak ‘n Shake here in Albany; both would do a tremendous business.

5) Whomever planted the rumor about Mike Munchak going to Penn State embarrassed the school bigtime, unless Munchak is lying thru his teeth when he says he has no interest in replacing Joe Paterno. When the most prominent coaching alumni of a school says he has no interest, why should anyone else have any interest? Replacing a legend is very tough duty.

4) If you had NBA League Pass on DirecTV last year, and you didn’t cancel during the lockout, they automatically re-newed you for this year at last year’s price, which is insane, since there are 19.5% less games this year than last. Greedy bastards. I’m waiting until next week to have my talk with them about whether or not I’m signing up this year.

3) Once in a while I stop at the Burger King drive-thru window on way to work to get breakfast; always order two sausage/egg/cheese biscuits, and without fail, they ALWAYS tell me they only have one biscuit left.

How is this possible? Do they get commission for selling the croissants? I’m just curious.

2) I’d like to see a bald man elected President in 2016; it would say something for this country if, for once, we could elect someone who doesn’t look that good on TV. We don’t have any smart bald men in this country?

1) Spring training starts in about seven weeks and still no word on where Prince Fielder will be playing; this is holding up the other free agent 1B’s from signing with new teams. Scumweasel agent Scott Boras must’ve gone on vacation for the holidays, though I thought greed never took a holiday.

Armadillo's Write-Up

Sunday, January 1

Home side won six of last seven Rutgers-South Florida games, as Scarlet Knights lost last three visits here, by 22-23-9 points. Rutgers lost by 15 at Miami in its only true road game Nov 15; but they just beat Florida at home in double OT, their fourth win in row. South Florida lost five of its last seven games, losing last two by combined total of five points to two pretty good teams, Southern Miss/UConn. Big East home favorites are 3-2-1 vs spread so far this young season.

Villanova won four of its last five games vs Marquette, with last four all decided by 4 or less points; home side won five of last six series games, with Wildcats losing two of last three visits here (losses by 13-7, with a 74-72 win last visit). Wildcats are 0-3 on road, losing by 11-16-14, and only the West Virginia loss was outside of Philly. Marquette was 10-0 but lost two of last three games, scoring 57-59 points- they fell behind Vanderbilt 31-8 in last game, lost by 17 at home.

Illinois State lost three of last four games against Southern Illinois, losing 57-54 to Salukis in MVC tourney in March; five of last six series games were decided by 4 or less points, with Redbirds losing 81-80/62-59 last two visits here. SIU lost its last four games, allowing 82.8 ppg; the three teams they've beaten are in bottom 15 in country. State upset No Iowa in MVC opener last game; they've split pair of road games, losing by 8 at Fresno State, winning by 5 at Morehead State- neither team is good.

9-3 Marshall is 3-3 vs top 100 teams, with #61 Ohio worst team they've lost to; Thundering Herd split pair with #33 Belmont-- six of their last eight games vs D-I teams were decided by six or less points. #99 Akron lost by point in OT to VCU Thursday; they're 1-3 against teams in top 100, losing by 21-1-24 points.

Minnesota lost eight of last ten games with Michigan, but they split last four visits here, losing by 12-28 points. 12-2 Gophers lost conference opener in double OT at Illinois- it was also their first true road game all season- they're 3-2 vs top 100 teams, but two of three wins were against top teams in Summit League. 11-2 Wolverines are 2-2 vs top 100 teams but haven't played one in almost a month- they're #1 in country, making 59.3% on 2-point shots. Fifth straight home game for Michigan.

Syracuse won its last five games vs DePaul by average of 15 points, but that was inflated by LY's 107-59 thrashing in Carrier Dome; Orange won its last two visits here, 60-55/59-57. Syracuse hasn't played close game in almost a month- their last five wins are by average of 23 points. Big East home teams are 6-3-1 vs spread, 3-1 if home dogs. Orange won by 16 at NC State in their only true road game so far. Improved DePaul's only loss (9-3) by more than a basket was by 11 to Wisc-Milwaukee.

6-7 Penn is 0-6 vs teams in top 100, but 20-point loss to Pitt was their only loss by more than 8 points- they lost by 4 at UCLA, not that the Bruins are great this year, but Quakers are better than their record would suggest. Duke is 5-0 vs teams not in top 100, with four wins by 23+ points- they won last two games by 27-40 points- their ACC opener is still six days away. Ivy League road underdogs of 14+ points are 5-2-1, 3-0 when they get 20+; ACC home favorites of 20+ points are 7-5.

Cincinnati lost seven of last eight games vs Pittsburgh, losing last five by average of 8 points; they lost last four visits here by 20-6-16-12 points. Panthers have already lost at home to Long Beach State/Wagner; they've scored 54-59 points in losing last two games. Pitt is 2-3 vs teams ranked in top 75- they're #162 in defense, much worse than usual. Cincinnati is 10-3 after pulling out 56-55 win over Oklahoma Thursday, its first win against a top 100 team- they're 2-1 on road, losing by 23 at Xavier.

Penn State won six in row and 10 of last 11 games vs Northwestern, as Lions won last three visits here by 11-11-14 points, but if Wildcats are an NCAA-caliber team, they don't lose this game. PSU is 0-3 vs teams in top 100, losing by 38-18-18 points- they're 1-3 on road, winning only at Boston College, with losses by 18-7-18 points.

Evansville is 2-11 in last 13 games vs Northern Iowa, losing last eight in this gym, by 13-18-3-11-13-7-19-12 points- home team won last five in series.
