Armadillo: Friday's six-pack

Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal wrote an interesting article, talking about how much alumni of each college basketball program had named in the NBA, since 1985. Here are the top six teams:

6) UConn Huskies $679M—Ray Allen-Hamilton

5) Michigan Wolverines $715M—Webber-Jalen Rose

4) Georgetown Hoyas $727M—Iverson-Mourning-Mutombo

3) Arizona Wildcats $738M—Bibby-Elliott

2) Duke $809M—Grant Hill-Elton Brand

1) North Carolina $853M—Vince Carter/Rasheed Wallace


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


Armadillo: Friday's List of 13: The best times to be in Las Vegas.......

First of all, there are no bad days to be in Las Vegas. None, not even when its 113 degrees in mid-July (its usually only 98 or 100 after the sun goes down). With that in mind, here are 13 of my favorite times to be in America’s Favorite City:

13) Super Sunday—There is so much gambling going on, almost every play in the Super Bowl causes money to change hands somehow. People bet on the coin toss and the length of the national anthem. For the action junkie, it doesn’t get much better than this.

12) NBA Summer League in July—OK, so its 113 outside, but for $28, you can sit in the Thomas & Mack Center and watch NBA rookies try to impress their new teams all day long, while also getting a chance to talk with celebrities as they enter/leave by same doors you do. Underrated fun. Did I mention its air conditioned?

11) Eating pancakes in a casino coffee shop at 5am— pinnacle of people watching, if you’re into that, and who isn’t? Plus, I’m convinced that food tastes better in the middle of the night.

10) First day of World Match Play golf tournament; Mini-version of March Madness; 64-golfer bracket means 32 matches to invest in on a Wednesday afternoon. Some of these guys no one has heard of, Some of the ones you’ve heard of get upset early on.

Lot of action for a Wednesday in February.

9) Bowling at South Point at 4am, going to the indoor go-kart track, or to the shooting range, all good stuff. I’m a terrible go-kart racer; too cautious.

8) Any weeknight during baseball season—Six hours of baseball goes by quickly in a sportsbook, where the Royals or Pirates get as much attention as the big market teams, as long as a group of guys bet on them. Always fun to figure out which game is involved when you hear random screaming from a corner of the room.

7) Watching World Series of Poker at Rio—Very large room, convention center-size, packed with poker players, with no noise except for poker chips clicking together and the occasional yell of “All In!!!” when someone puts their tournament life on the line.

Not as much fun as on TV, because you can’t see percentages of winning, obviously, but still lot of fun to see once.

6) UNLV basketball—Lot of history in Thomas & Mack Center; Tark the Shark still goes to the games, and the Rebels are good. They have good hot dogs in the arena, too.

5) Any football weekend—13 hours of action on Saturday, 11 more on Sunday. I recommend the South Point for watching football; there was always room when I was there, it wasn’t a ripoff for food/drinks and the people who run the place act like they want you there. Did I mention they sell 75-cent hot dogs?

4) Lounging by the pool at Bally’s—Had never done this before April, but its excellent, very relaxing. Weather in April was perfect for sitting by pool, doing some reading while you lounge in the sun, taking in the sights, and believe me, there are some interesting sights. .

3) Championship Week of college hoop, especially Thursday/Friday: 40-something games on Thursday, a few less on Friday, but every game packed with meaning, as Selection Sunday is only 2-3 days away.

2) New Year’s Eve—I haven’t done this one yet, but they shut down the Strip to traffic for a while, and there are lots of fireworks, even more than usual. Hotel rates are steep, but what better way to bring in a new year?

1) First weekend of NCAA tournament—Its almost too crowded in sportsbooks for this weekend, but again an off-the-strip place like South Point is probably the best idea. This is my favorite weekend of the year, no matter where I am, but if you’re in the desert and can go bowling at 4am after watching the games, its just that much better.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Game of the day: Los Angeles Clippers at Philadelphia 76ers
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Los Angeles Clippers at Philadelphia 76ers (-4, 189.5)

THE STORY: The Philadelphia 76ers haven’t lost back-to-back home games this season and are 13-4 at home. The Pacific Division-leading Los Angeles Clippers figure to provide a good test for the Atlantic Division leaders and are 2-1 during a six-game road excursion. The Clippers lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday in what All-Star point guard Chris Paul described as “definitely one of our worst showings.” Philadelphia has won six of its last eight despite losing to San Antonio at home on Wednesday.

TV: 7 p.m. ET, Fox Sports West (Los Angeles), Comcast SportsNet (Philadelphia)

LINE: The opening spread of -4 has held steady, however, the total has dropped from 189.5 to 188.5 at some books.

ABOUT THE CLIPPERS (15-8, 13-10 ATS): Randy Foye drew the start Wednesday against Cleveland in Los Angeles’ first game without Chauncey Billups (Achilles’ tendon). Foye scored 15 points and has reached double digits in five of his seven starts this season. Coach Vinny Del Negro opted to keep Mo Williams in a reserve role and Williams had just five points in 34 minutes. Williams has made just 5 of 22 shots over the past two games but is averaging 14.1 points overall.

ABOUT THE 76ERS (18-8, 17-8-1 ATS): Versatile Andre Iguodala was named to the All-Star team Thursday for the first time in his eight-year career. Iguodala has been a superb all-around player during Philadelphia’s surprise rise, averaging 13 points, 6.7 rebounds and 5.2 assists with nearly as many steals (46) as turnovers (49). Philadelphia sees his inclusion as a sign of respect for its team-first philosophy. The Sixers have committed the fewest turnovers per game in the league at 10.7.

TRENDS:

* Over is 4-1 in the last five meetings.
* Clippers are 6-13 ATS in the last 19 meetings.
* Road team is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. Philadelphia guard Jrue Holiday averaged 22 points and seven assists as the Sixers swept two games from Los Angeles last season.

2. Griffin shot just 32.1 percent from the field against the 76ers last season.

3. Philadelphia is 0-5 this season when allowing 100 or more points.

PREDICTION: 76ers 91, Clippers 87

Pick 'n' roll: Friday's best NBA bets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Portland Trail Blazers at New Orleans Hornets (N/A)

Sometimes the Trail Blazers look like one of the elite teams in the Western Conference and others they look absolutely lost on the court.

Consistency has been a major problem and was again in Wednesday’s 103-96 loss to Houston. Portland was asleep at the wheel while the Rockets jumped out to a 60-46 lead at the half. The Blazers have now dropped three of four both straight up and against the spread as they head out on the road.

"I don't know, but we are playing tight,” Wesley Matthews said about the team’s recent slump. “Playing not to mess up. Not to lose. That's not how we are. You look at this team we have dawgs, guys who just get after it, who don't think, basketball is just second nature. We just go out and play. That's when you see us at our best.”

LaMarcus Aldridge was battling the flu and managed just 13 points on 5-for-14 shooting against Houston and should be much better Friday. He's putting up 23.3 points and 8.5 boards per game.

The Blazers will be able to play freely against the Hornets, which should help them snap this slump. New Orleans has dropped seven in a row straight up and against the spread.

Pick: Trail Blazers


Atlanta Hawks at Orlando Magic (-4.5, 182)

Coming off an impressive 102-89 victory over LeBron James and the Heat, it’s hard not to think about what this Magic team could accomplish if Dwight Howard remains with the club.

Howard had another huge game against Miami, putting up 25 points and 24 rebounds in the win. Despite all the distractions about his contract status, Howard is staying focused on each upcoming game on the schedule.

“Just giving the same energy and effort every night is the big thing,” Howard told reporters. “This is a great win considering the loss we had against the Clippers. But we have to erase this game and move on to the Hawks."

Nine of the last 10 meetings between these two teams have played under the total and we expect a similar story Friday.

Pick: Under

Ice picks: Friday's best NHL bets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dallas Stars at Buffalo Sabres (-145, 5.5)

If all it took was a few broken ribs to get his team playing with purpose, you can bet Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff would have hit the trainer's table a lot earlier in the season.

Ruff suffered three broken ribs during an accident in practice earlier this week and was forced to watch Wednesday’s game against the defending-champion Bruins from the press box. The Sabres responded with a 6-0 drubbing of the B’s and didn’t shy away from the physical play when Boston started throwing its weight around.

"It's killing him because he is the pulse and heartbeat of the team," assistant coach James Patrick told reporters of Ruff. "He's our leader. He's in a lot of pain, but he feels sick that he can't be here."

Ryan Miller stopped all 36 shots he faced for his second shutout in three games, helping Buffalo improve to 4-0-1 in its last five.

The Sabres are riding a high while Dallas is playing on consecutive nights.

Pick: Sabres


Chicago Blackhawks at San Jose Sharks (-140, 5.5)

The Chicago Blackhawks are riding a six-game losing streak with no solutions in sight.

The Blackhawks just can’t put a complete 60 minutes together right now. Tied 2-2 at Colorado heading into the third period, they fell apart again when the Avalanche pumped in three even-strength goals to run away with a 5-2 victory.

"We still have a lot of work to do,” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville told reporters. “That's what we have to reinforce, maybe looking at taking baby steps in certain areas, whether it's the depth of our forecheck, our play in our own end -- all have to be more detail-oriented."

So basically, Chicago needs to be better in all areas .The Sharks aren’t going to make that easy on the Hawks.

Chicago has won 12 of the last 15 meetings between the two teams but is winless in its last eight road games.

Pick: Over
