Wednesday's betting tips: Lakers can't cover without Kobe

Weather to watch

San Francisco Giants at Colorado Rockies – 19 mph winds are expected to be blowing out to left-center with a game time temperature of 69 degrees.

Who’s hot

NHL: Vancouver has won eight of its last nine.

NHL: Pittsburgh is 21-7 in its last 28 games as a favorite.

NBA: San Antonio is 24-8-3 against the spread in its last 35.

NBA: The over is 8-3 in Utah’s last 11 road games.

MLB: Detroit is 41-11 in its last 52 games when Justin Verlander is starting.

Who’s not

NHL: Detroit is 1-7 in its last eight road games.

NHL: Philadelphia is 2-7 in its last nine games as an underdog.

NBA: The L.A. Lakers are 5-16 against the spread in its last 21 games overall and have dropped nine of 10 against the number - including their last two without injured star Kobe Bryant.

NBA: Utah has covered twice in its last eight games.

MLB: The home team is 4-10 in Bob Davidson’s last 14 games calling balls and strikes. Davidson is scheduled to work Wednesday’s Giants-Rockies game.

Key stat

.329 – The Detroit Tigers are the only undefeated team left in the American League and leads bigs with a .329 team batting average. They’ve produced 31 runs through their first four games of the year – tied with St. Louis for No. 1 in the majors.

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers – Bryant has been ruled out of his third consecutive game with a sore shin. Bryant is putting up 28.1 points and 4.6 assists per game. Oddsmakers have yet to set a line for L.A.’s matchup against San Antonio.

Game of the day

Los Angeles Clippers at Oklahoma City Thunder (-8, 196.5)

Notable quotable

"(Monday) was about as bad as we could play as a team. It was just one of those days where when you play an 82, or in this case a 66-game season, it's going to happen. It's the unfortunate part of being in the NBA is nights like this. It's one of the worst feelings in the world." - Golden State’s David Lee after the Warriors were hammered 123-84 by Denver on Monday. The Warriors visit Portland Wednesday.

Notes and tips

Arkansas has fired coach Bobby Petrino and terminated his contract with cause on Tuesday following a scandal involving a 25-year-old female football program employee. Petrino was suspended and placed on paid administrative leave last Thursday night in the wake of new information regarding his motorcycle crash on April 1. Assistant coach Taver Johnson has been put in charge of the program through spring practice while Petrino was suspended.

Philadelphia Flyers center Danny Briere returned to practice and will likely return for Wednesday's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series versus the Atlantic Division rival Pittsburgh Penguins. Briere has been sidelined with a back injury after being blasted by a shot from Pittsburgh's Joe Vitale in the waning moments of Philadelphia's 6-4 win on April 1. The 34-year-old Briere has collected 16 goals, 33 assists and 69 penalty minutes this season.

New York Mets third baseman David Wright suffered a broken right pinkie and did not play in Tuesday's game against the National League East rival Washington Nationals. X-rays showed a small fracture in the finger and the team later noted that it will be placed in a splint. Surgery is not required for the injury, and Wright will re-evaluated on Wednesday. Wright has gotten off to a strong start this season, belting one homer while recording at least one hit in every game.

Los Angeles Kings forward Jeff Carter returned to practice Monday and says he'll be ready for the team's Western Conference playoff opener Wednesday against the Vancouver Canucks. Carter missed the final five games of the regular season with a deep bone bruise in his ankle. The 27-year-old said he would "for sure" be ready to play Game 1 on Wednesday. Carter had six goals and three assists in 16 games since being acquired from the Columbus Blue Jackets in February.

Armadillo: Wednesday's six-pack

-- First two names suggested to replace Bobby Petrino at Arkansas are Tommy Bowden and Gus Malzahn.

-- Baylor got good news: Quincy Miller will be back for his sophomore season. Good news for Miller too. Leaving too early can be a disaster.

-- Loyola Greyhound basketball coach Jimmy Patsos threw out the first ball before the Orioles game last night.
-- Duquesne hired LIU coach Ferry, who was replaced from
within by the Blackbirds. Ferry did an excellent job at LIU, but Duquesne is in a tough league. Ron Everhart is a good coach who couldn't get it done there. .

-- Guy named Greg Shaheen is out as head of the NCAA tournament, it is rare to hear of a guy who is loved by both coaches/media. Politics can be a ridiculously petty thing, and it appears that Shaheen got hosed.

-- David Wright has a broken bone in the pinky on his throwing hand; he will wear a splint until further notice.


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


Armadillo: Wednesday's List of 13: Random midweek thoughts........

13) PG Burke is coming back to Michigan next year; Watford/Zeller are both coming back to Indiana, great news for those teams, both of whom figure to be in the top 15 in November. The Big Dozen got lot tougher with those two announcements.

12) Utah Jazz signed Blake Ahearn from the D-League; Ahearn is one of the greatest shooters of all-time (seriously, he is).

11) Mets are 4-1, but 1B Ike Davis is 0-15, and the team’s crack medical staff is wondering if Davis is still suffering from jungle fever. Davis was given Tuesday night off, with the Nationals starting lefty Detwiler. Facing Strasburg this afternoon ain't going to help any.

10) Baseball schedule will be much different next year, with the Astros moving to the AL West, and both leagues having 15 teams. There will be at least one interleague series going on at all times.

9) Former St John’s coach Norm Roberts left the Florida staff to go back to work for old friend Bill Self; Roberts fills Danny Manning’s opening, after Manning became head coach at Tulsa.

8) Texas Tech won the national title in chess last two years; who knew? Their whole team all returns next year to defend their title, but they'll be doing it at a different school.

Webster University in St Louis offered them all full scholarships, so the kids and their coach bolted Tech for the Gateway City, and even better, they don’t have to sit out a year like football/basketball players would. The seven chess wizards are all international kids, coming from Iran, Germany, Israel, Brazil, Azerbaijan and Hungary, so moving from Lubbock to St Louis is no big deal to them.

If this happened with a basketball team, it would be a huge national story. Chess? Well, I wonder if the people at Texas Tech think they got rooked.

7) Arkansas fired Bobby Petrino, which means a top 25 college football job is open. You don't see football jobs open up at this time of the year, so it'll be interesting to see how they go about replacing Petrino.

6) My question is this: Does the woman involved get fired too?

5) Ian Kinsler got five years, $75M from the Rangers; only people happier than Kinsler and his agent are Robinson Cano and his agent; Cano is a free agent this winter. Throw in Brandon Phillips getting $72M for six years from the Reds, and it’s a great day to play second base.

4) Washington Huskies’ two-year starter Colin Porter has had to give up football; U-Dub’s offensive line is so messed up right now they’re not sure if the Huskies will hold a spring game, lest their QB or RBs get hurt, too.

3) Former Buccaneer RB Mike Alstott was an assistant coach LY at St Pete Catholic; this fall, he’ll be the head coach at Northside Christian School in the Tampa Bay area.

2) Rams’ coaching staff will have several second generation coaches; John Fassel is the special teams coordinator, assisted by Paul Boudreau Jr, whose dad is the Rams’ OL coach. In addition, the sons of Jeff Fisher/Gregg Williams are also on staff, on the defensive side of the ball.

1) So the Reds just shelled out close to $300M to secure the right side of their infield for the next six years. Next question, and a more important one: Are they developing any pitchers?, because for sure they won’t be able to sign any decent free agent pitchers to work in that bandbox they call home. Its critical that some pitchers come up thru their farm system.
