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

Detroit Red Wings at Columbus Blue Jackets (+170, 5.5)

Even though the Detroit Red Wings secured their 21st consecutive playoff berth with a 7-2 blowout of the Columbus Blue Jackets Monday, don’t expect them to let up when the two clubs complete a home-and-home series Wednesday.

The Red Wings thoroughly outplayed the Blue Jackets in every zone and with Henrik Zetterberg leading the charge, tallied a handful of highlight reel goals.

On Wednesday, they’re expecting to have Johan Franzen back in the lineup after he missed four games with back spasms.

“I think it's real important, as you've seen with Pavel (Datsyuk) and Nick (Lidstrom), when you miss time, it doesn't matter how good a player you are, it doesn't come back right away, so it's important he gets in and gets playing,” Detroit coach Mike Babcock told reporters of Franzen’s return.

Franzen leads the team with 26 goals and Detroit might as well be playing an AHL team here. This one could get ugly, too.

Pick: Over


San Jose Sharks at Anaheim Ducks (+105, 5)

San Jose leads the Pacific by one point over Dallas and Phoenix - who are tied for seventh in the West - and two points over Los Angeles.

“We haven’t done anything yet,’’ captain Joe Thornton said. “We have to keep winning to make the playoffs.’’

After Wednesday, the Sharks have five games remaining – at Phoenix and home-and-home sets with Dallas and Los Angeles. So, it isn’t going to be easy.

Anaheim is on the verge of being eliminated from playoff contention, but the club isn’t going to back down against the Sharks.

Goaltender Jonas Hiller is expected to add to his franchise record when he makes his 70th start of the season. Hiller has owned the Sharks recently with a 5-1-0 mark and a 1.92 goals against average

Pick: Under

Wednesday’s betting tips: Clips cruising after owner speaks out

Who’s hot

NBA: Boston has covered in five straight home games.

NBA: New York is 14-3 against the spread in its last 17 home games.

NHL: Colorado has lost its last five games in Vancouver.

NHL: Anaheim is 5-1 in its last six meetings with San Jose.

NCAAB: Washington State has covered the number in four straight.

Who’s not

NBA: New Jersey is 1-6 against the spread in its last seven overall.

NBA: The under is 0-5 in Denver’s last five games.

NHL: Los Angeles is 3-14-1 in its last 18 games in Calgary.

NHL: Edmonton is 3-9 in its last 12 home games.

NCAAB: The under is 0-5 in Utah State’s last five games.

Key stat

1.67 – Felix Hernandez makes his fifth Opening Day start for the Seattle Mariners Wednesday in Tokyo. In his first four Opening Day starts he is 3-0 with a 1.67 ERA and 27 strikeouts. The Mariners are set as -130 favorites against the Oakland Athletics. Oddsmakers have the total pegged at 7.

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Brandon McCarthy, Oakland Athletics – McCarthy tore the fingernail of his middle finger on his throwing hand in his last start of the preseason last Tuesday when he gave up four runs in four innings against the Blue Jays. He had a fake nail put on at a nail salon but that fell off on Sunday and there hasn’t been any word on his condition outside of the fact that he’s expected to make his first Opening Day start Wednesday against the Mariners. He was 9-9 with a 3.32 ERA last season and had 125 strikeouts compared to only 25 walks last season.

Game of the day

Chicago Bulls at Atlanta Hawks (4, 183)

Notable quotable

"It didn't need to be done but it is appreciated. It's a difficult situation. People start talking even though it's not the reality of the situation; it becomes a headache. We're trying to build something special here and do it the right way and when you lose games, you're going to be questioned on things. That's just part of it." – Los Angeles Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro after the team’s ownership gave him a vote of confidence this week, supposedly ending speculation that Del Negro’s job was in danger during a three-game losing streak. The Clips have rebounded to win consecutive contests, covering the number in both as they head into Wednesday’s date with Phoenix as 6-point favorites.

Notes and tips

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony tweaked his groin in the third quarter of Monday night's 89-80 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. "I don't think it's too bad; I just want to take it day by day," Anthony said. The 27-year-old missed seven games with a right groin strain last month. He noted that Monday's injury was less severe than his previous groin ailment. Anthony is averaging 20.2 points and six rebounds in 40 games this season.

After batting leadoff throughout his career, Ichiro Suzuki will hit third in the Seattle Mariners’ lineup to begin the regular season in an effort to drive in runs. If preseason stats are any indication, it doesn’t look like the switch will bother him much. He hit an even .400 in exhibition play.

Edmonton Oilers star left wing Taylor Hall will undergo surgery on his left shoulder and miss the remainder of the season. Hall will be sidelined five to six months after the surgery, Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini said. Hall, 20, has collected 27 goals and 26 assists in 61 games this season.

Armadillo: Wednesday's six-pack

Six ballplayers who came to bat last season with the most runners on base
6) Miguel Cabrera, 460—Will the switch to third base hurt his hitting?

5) Ryan Howard, 462—Hopes to be back from Achilles tendon surgery by Memorial Day.

4) Jay Bruce, 463—Came to bat 83 times LY with a man on third; only knocked him in 25 times.

3) Matt Kemp, 471—Will be playing for new owner by season’s end.

2) Prince Fielder, 473—He’ll miss Miller Park; the Brewers will miss him.

1) Adrian Gonzalez, 486—Why did the Commissioner let Padres trade him?


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


Armadillo: Wednesday's List of 13: In a perfect world, where I make decisions

13) Baseball season would never, ever start in Japan. Ever. If teams have to go over there, they play exhibition games. Period.

12) I-A college football teams wouldn’t play I-AA teams and if they did, tickets prices would have to be reduced by at least half of what they are for a I-A opponent.

11) The Presidential election would be determined by popular vote, not the outdated electoral college. With the electoral college, only votes in certain swing states have a real impact on the election.

10) It would be OK to make noise during a golf swing. Put it this way; on a baseball field, Albert Pujols tries to hit a 95 mph fastball with 35,000 fans yelling, when the pitch might just as easily be a 72 mph change-up; the golf ball is sitting still. Just hit it already.

9) All states would have a shot clock for high school basketball; we have it here in New York—just makes the game so much more fun to play and watch. Most states don’t have it.

8) Fighting would be banned from the NHL, just like all the other sports. Hockey is a great game; you don’t need it.

7) Wouldn’t turn the clocks back in the fall, just leave them the way they are now. Its cruddy when it gets dark at 4:30 in December.

6) NBA playoff series would be best-of-5, at most, instead of best-of-7.

5) Online poker would be legal again; its legal everywhere else in the world. I know guys who spend a lot of their year in Malta so they can play cards for a living; they’re Americans. They should be able to do that here.

4) NFL teams shouldn’t call a press conference after trading for a backup quarterback. Unless, of course, they’re just starved for attention. That usually leads to trouble.

3) Our taxes pay the salaries of state troopers; the first time you get pulled over for speeding, you should get a warning card saying to slow down. No one should get a ticket the first time they’re pulled over, and no, I haven’t gotten any tickets recently.

2) Sports teams shouldn’t be allowed to price tickets on tiers, according to the opponent/event. If a team charges more because the Angels are in town, but Pujols doesn’t play that day, you don’t get a discount, do you? Why should Opening Day tickets cost more than tickets later that week? Why do teams blatantly rip off their own fans?

1) Kids should be able to go straight from high school to the NBA; the pro league should be in kids’ ears, telling them where they’re likely to be drafted, if at all, then kids can make better decisions. Its ridiculous for a kid to go to college for only one year, and then bolt for the league. I’m surprised that wasn’t addressed with the new NBA labor agreement.

Minnesota, Stanford clash Thursday for NIT title


STANFORD CARDINAL (25-11)

vs. MINNESOTA GOLDEN GOPHERS (23-14)


NIT Championship
Tip-off: Thursday, 7:00 p.m. EDT – New York, NY
Line: Minnesota -1, Total: 132½

After needing overtime to outlast Washington in the semifinals, sixth-seeded Minnesota looks to capture the NIT Championship when it faces third-seeded Stanford on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.

Despite playing without its two best frontcourt players in this tournament (Trevor Mbawke and Ralph Sampson III), Tubby Smith’s Gophers have found a way to win all four of their NIT games, despite not playing any of them at home. Minnesota is now 7-0 ATS (6-1 SU) in March, outscoring these teams by 7.0 PPG (74.1 PPG to 67.1 PPG). Despite missing the 6-foot-11 Sampson III for the past six contests, the Gophers have hung tough on the glass, outrebounding these half-dozen opponents by a whopping 8.3 RPG. Stanford does not have great size down low and shoots much worse (44.5% FG for the season, 36.9% FG on Tuesday) than Minnesota (46.5% FG). The Gophers have connected on a stellar 50.5% FG in the NIT and are more battle-tested going up against great Big Ten schools, as opposed to Stanford, which finished 10-8 in a dreadful Pac-12 Conference this season. The pick here is MINNESOTA to prevail.

This strong FoxSheets trend also likes the Golden Gophers to win the NIT Championship.

MINNESOTA is 7-1 ATS (87.5%, +5.9 Units) in road games versus good teams - outscoring their opponents by 4+ points/game after 15+ games this season. The average score was MINNESOTA 67.1, OPPONENT 65.9 - (Rating = 1*).

The Cardinal are led down low by 6-foot-8 senior C/F Josh Owens (11.8 PPG, 5.9 RPG) who is coming off his best game of the tournament with 15 points and 12 rebounds in the 74-64 semifinal win over UMass. Owens has averaged 13.0 PPG, 7.5 RPG and 2.5 SPG in the NIT. The team’s top scorer, freshman G Chasson Randle (13.8 PPG), is dangerous from beyond the arc, making 43.4% of his shots from deep. He’s averaging 13.8 PPG in the NIT, drilling 8-of-18 three-point tries. Randle also had six boards and three steals in Tuesday’s win. The team’s other double-digit scorer is sophomore PG Aaron Bright (11.6 PPG, 3.6 APG) who also shoots well from deep (43.4% 3-pt FG). Bright has averaged a hefty 17.3 PPG on a sizzling 66% FG in the NIT, scoring in double-figures in all four games. This includes a 29-point showing on 11-of-13 FG against Illinois State in the Second Round. He’ll need to take better care of the basketball though, as he has nearly as many turnovers (12) as assists (15) in the NIT, and his team committed 17 turnovers against the Minutemen. Sophomore swingman Anthony Brown (8.0 PPG) also had a big night at MSG on Tuesday, scoring 18 points on 7-of-12 FG.

Since losing Trevor Mbakwe earlier in the year to a knee injury, the entire Minnesota squad has done a great job adjusting to its offensive attack without its star player. Much of the team’s offensive surge is due to junior F Rodney Williams (12.2 PPG, 5.6 RPG), who is having an unbelievable tournament with 21.0 PPG on 62% FG. He scored 18 points and pulled down nine boards in Tuesday’s win over Washington. But Williams has had help, especially from the all-Hollins backcourt. The two brothers (Andre and Austin) combined for 32 points on 11-of-22 FG against the Huskies. Freshman Andre had 20 points (7-of-7 FT) and five assists, increasing his NIT averages to 17.8 PPG and 3.5 APG. Sophomore Austin scored a dozen points (5-of-8 FG) to give him 11.5 PPG in the four tournament games.

Pacers favored heavily over Wizards Thursday


WASHINGTON WIZARDS (11-38)

at INDIANA PACERS (29-20)


Tip-off: Thursday, 7:05 p.m. ET
Line: Indiana -10½, Total: 192 ½

Indiana hopes its legs hold up when it plays for the sixth time in eight nights Thursday versus the Wizards.

Washington has been in a scoring slump during its four-game SU losing skid (82.0 PPG), mainly due to cold shooting from three (23.9%). But the Pacers have done a terrible job at defending the three-pointer in the past three games, allowing 44% (25-of-57) from downtown. Can the Pacers cover this hefty spread? For the answer, connect to the NBA Weekday Pass for ATS picks covering all the marquee NBA games each day.

The Wizards haven’t been scoring much, but they also haven’t been giving up much either, limiting opponents to 87.2 PPG on 42.4% FG in the past five games. Each of their past eight games have finished Under the total. Washington has not had much success on the road though, going 5-19 SU (10-14 ATS) and allowing 101.4 PPG.

Washington has had two days of rest since losing a squeaker at home to Detroit, 79-77, on a shot with 0.2 seconds left. The Wizards entered the fourth quarter with a nine-point lead, but were outscored 26-15 in the final period. PG John Wall (17.1 PPG, 7.9 APG) shot poorly again (6-of-17 FG), but filled the stat sheet with 14 points, nine assists, seven rebounds and two steals. In his past five games, Wall has just 12.4 PPG on 30.9% FG, but has distributed the rock nicely with 38 assists and just 14 turnovers (2.7 ratio) in this span. C Nene (13.5 PPG, 7.6 RPG) has been up-and-down in his four games since being traded to the Wizards, scoring 22, 6, 21 and 8 points on Monday. He will need to have a strong game to keep his team in this contest. SG Jordan Crawford (14.0 PPG) led them with 20 points on Monday, marking his sixth straight 20-point effort. He’s averaging 21.0 PPG on 49% FG during this six-game surge. This three-star FoxSheets trend expects the Wizards to stay competitive in this one:

Play Against - Home favorites (INDIANA) - extremely tired team - playing 9 or more games in 14 days, a marginal winning team (51% to 60%) playing a losing team. (38-13 since 1996.) (74.5%, +23.7 units. Rating = 3*).

Indiana has been a quality home team (15-7 SU), but is just 10-12 ATS. However, the Pacers limit these visitors to just 92.2 PPG on 42.7% FG at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. But they are coming off a terrible loss at New Jersey, by a 100-84 score on Wednesday. Indiana simply ran out of gas in that game, trailing by just two points entering the final quarter. The Pacers committed 17 turnovers and were outrebounded 43-39.

The lone offensive bright spot in Wednesday’s loss was SG Paul George (12.3 PPG, 5.3 RPG) who led his team with 22 points on 8-of-13 FG. He also chipped in four rebounds and four assists, but finished the game with a minus-22 rating. Team leading scorer SF Danny Granger (17.8 PPG) was horrible, making just 2-of-8 shots with four turnovers, and finishing with more fouls (six) than points (five). But in his previous five games, Granger averaged 21.8 PPG on 46.4% FG, and he has scored 22.9 PPG in the past 15 meetings with the Wizards. This two-star FoxSheets trend expects the Pacers to win big:

Play On - Favorites (INDIANA) - a marginal winning team (51% to 60%) playing a terrible team (<=25%), second half of the season. (65-35 over the last 5 seasons.) (65%, +26.5 units. Rating = 2*).
