Friday's betting tips: Big Ben could have shoulder troubles

Weather to watch

Houston Astros at Atlanta Braves: A 50 percent chance of thunderstorms throughout the evening hours could cause delays at Turner Field.

Who’s hot?

The Seattle Mariners are winners of seven straight and have 14 victories in their last 19 games. They'll be put to the test in a three-game set with the Yankees beginning Friday.

Who’s not?

The Cleveland Indians have lost five straight and are falling out of contention in the AL Central. They're seven games back of the White Sox for the division lead heading into action Thursday.

Key stat

Albert Pujols is the fourth player in history to reach the 1,400-RBI mark in his first 12 seasons, joining Joe DiMaggio, Al Simmons and Lou Gehrig.

Game of the day

Los Angeles Angels at Chicago White Sox (+124)

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger says he isn't concerned about the "little torn rotator cuff" in his right arm.

"I'm good. It's OK, just sore," he said when asked about the injury Thursday. "I have a little torn rotator cuff. That doesn't heal. We just have to hope it doesn't tear the rest of the way,"

Notable quotable

“Everyone deserves a second chance in financial situations.”- Jose Canseco after filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Nevada.

Betting notes

- Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann’s next scheduled start has been pushed back from Friday to Saturday due to minor shoulder inflammation.

- The Philadelphia Phillies are 38-31 (.550) on weekdays this season heading into action Thursday and just 9-26 (.257) on Saturday and Sunday.

- Miami OF Giancarlo Stanton, out since July 7 with a right knee injury, could begin a rehab assignment with Class-A Jupiter on Friday. Stanton, who has 19 homers and 50 RBIs, may return to the majors next week barring any setbacks.

Armadillo: Friday's six-pack

-- LSU is first preseason #1 college football team since 1997 that doesn't have its QB back from the year before. That said, LSU's QB last year was awful, so the new guy almost has to be an upgrade.

-- Ten years ago, Mike Davis coached Indiana to the Final Four; he went on to UAB, where his teams fizzled out. Now he's new coach at Texas Southern, as his career appears headed in the wrong direction.

-- Nebraska has a new 16,000 basketball arena opening next year; they're about to get better under coach Tim Miles, who built a strong program at North Dakota State. If you can win there, you can win anywhere.

-- Ryan Dempster lasted 4.2 innings in his Texas debut, giving up eight runs to the Angels. Not exactly what the Rangers were looking for.

-- Guy who bought the Cleveland Browns is older brother of Tennessee's governor, Bill Haslam; he owns 550 truck stops/travel plazas. Seeing as he paid $1B+ for the Browns, truck stops must be a profitable business.

-- 37 rare baseball cards found in an Ohio attic brought back $565,332 in an auction Thursday night. Go clean out your attics, people......


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


Armadillo: Friday's List of 13: Random stuff with the weekend here....

13) How can David Stern, or any NBA executive watch these Olympic basketball games and not see that the game played under FIBA rules is a better game than it is under NBA rules?

More passing/shooting, less pounding the ball with the dribble on isolation plays. Let teams play any defense they want, then its real basketball, but not until then.

12) France-Lithuania game early Thursday morning was great fun to watch; fast-paced, good passing, very spirited play, the way basketball was meant to be played. I am told the Brazil-Russia game in the afternoon was also excellent.

USA-Nigeria? Not so much.

11) I had no idea that Olympic medal winners also got money: $25K for gold medals, $15K for silver, $10K for bronze. Why does no one mention this? Michael Phelps bagged $200,000 back in '08. Not bad.

10) Tony Parker is wearing goggles to protect the eye he injured in a fracas in a nightclub this spring. All five starters on the French team are either in the NBA or were at one time.

9) Showtime’s reality show on the Miami Marlins is very interesting and more up-to-date than I thought it would be. Still strikes me as odd that David Samson, the Marlins’ President, is owner Jeffrey Luria’s stepson. Inquiring minds want to see the mom.

8) Cliff Lee is owed $87M over next three years; am curious to see if Lee passes through waivers, and the $87M makes that more likely, which team would Philly trade him to (Texas makes most sense)? Phillies keeping Cole Hamels over Lee is smart, since Hamels is lot younger, and better.

7) Falcons/Cowboys are both 18-1 to win the NFC; why? Atlanta is not only better than Dallas, they’re in an easier division, with New Orleans having their coaching issues this year. Dallas has to battle Giants (two SB titles in last five years) and the Eagles just in their own division.

At 36-1, Falcons are good longshot to win a Super Bowl, as long as they improve on their 4th-and-1 plays this year.

6) Saints’ over/under for wins is still 10; I just don’t see them winning ten games. Football players don’t do well in unusual circumstances; the Saints’ HC and GM are both suspended for the year, and the interim head coach is gone until Week 7!!!! How does this end well? Who decides if they punt on 4th-and-1? If Drew Brees ever got hurt, they’d be a 3-13 team.

5) Baseball has made Marlins’ closer Heath Bell a wealthy guy, but he never made his high school baseball team until he was a senior.

4) Over/under on games Peyton Manning plays before missing a game due to injury is 8.5, with over a -$170 favorite, under a +$140 underdog. Until last year, Manning had never missed a game due to injury.

3) Carlos Lee turned down trades to the Dodgers/Bronx, but accepted one to the Marlins. Why would you want a guy who obviously cares so little about winning? If you’re a competitor, don’t you want to play in a pennant race?

2) Reno-Tahoe PGA golf tournament, which is played in high altitude, has switched to the modified Stableford scoring system that was formerly used at the now-defunct International tournament that was played in Colorado. Rather than play against par, players get two points for a birdie, five for an eagle, lose one for a bogey. It rewards risk taking more than stroke play.

1) Francisco Liriano averaged 12.9 swings/misses per start with Minnesota this year, with a miss rate of 31.9% on opponents’ swings. His first start for the White Sox was against his old team and they did even worse against him, missing on 17 of 44 swings, a 38.6% clip. Liriano has always had big talent but hasn’t always shown grit in tough situations.

Unusual that after watching him pitch for several years, his old teammates did worse against Liriano than the rest of the league does.
