Cokin’s Corner, Tuesday 1/1/19

Happy New Year! Nice finish to 2018, with a 4-1 overall heading into the late play on Texas A&M in the Gator Bowl. Regardless of how that one turns out, a successful day and that wraps up a third straight really positive month. Here's a quick free play on a New Year's Day CBB game and I'll be back on Wednesday with the more detailed blog and ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Monday 12/31/18

Quick heads up on the blog and radio schedule for the next couple days. I'll be only posting the daily free play on this page, with regular blogging to resume on Wednesday. Ditto for The Las Vegas Sportsline. No shows on Monday or Tuesday, back at it on Wednesday at 2PM Pacific ESPN Las Vegas and lvsportsnetwork.com. HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR TO ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 12/30/18

Monday Morning Quarterbacking is so easy. Lots of complaining about Notre Dame being included in the four-team college football playoff. This, of course, came after the fact. I didn't hear much squawking before the Fighting Irish got smacked by Clemson. If you're asking me whether I think Georgia is better than Notre Dame and therefore should have been ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Saturday 12/29/18

This will be one of my quick blogs, with just the Friday recap and an opinion on one of the Saturday bowl games. My Friday worked out okay, although I have to admit I wish I hadn't talked myself out of playing Auburn. At least I wasn't on the other side. I did garner wins with Syracuse and Iowa State, so 2--0 on the bowls. Loser in college hoops with ... More

The value of late information was on display Friday morning. I've lost count of the number of times I've stressed the importance of being on Twitter. Not so much for the conversation as that might be of little interest to some. But if you're wagering, then Twitter is an incredibly valuable resource. The latest example of why that's a truism was illust... More

Cokin’s Corner, Thursday 12/27/18

I definitely did not see this one coming. Justin Herbert provided the stunner with the announcement that he's going to return to Oregon for his senior season. Herbert was the favorite to be the first QB off the board in the 2019 draft. That's what makes this news a shocker, at least from my vantage point. I'll be happy to give him props for honoring his ... More

Saturdays have the same number of hours as the other six days. But for anyone in my line of work, Saturday always seems much longer, thanks to the ultra-deep schedules across the betting board. Good thing this is a labor of love. Very good results continue here. 5-1 overall on this Saturday, 3-0 bowls, 1-0 hoops and a split on the ice. The one loser was ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Saturday 12/22/18

My usual abbreviated late Friday night blog. Off another profitable day thanks to relatively easy winners in the NHL and college hoops with the NJ Devils and Ole Miss. I lost the bowl play on Toledo, which was clearly the wrong side. Nevertheless, 2-1 +1.15 works just fine and the positive flow enjoyed over what is now the last three months continues. ... More

Friday's college basketball schedule is fairly deep, so I'll make this a quick blog as I continue to try and dig beyond just the numbers in an effort to find some advantages. Thursday was perfect. Penguins and Golden Knights on the ice, Northern Illinois in hoops. I'm on the early bowl battle in the Bahamas, and have one CBB play set already. Hope to ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Thursday 12/20/18

Just in case you missed it, there was an epic bad beat on Wednesday night in college basketball. I'm talking all-time level here. I was not personally involved in the game. Let's just say that anyone who had Duquesne +5.5 got incredibly unlucky. If you had Penn State, take the money and run. Tie game with five seconds remaining. Duquesne gets whistled ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Wednesday 12/19/18

I'm always up for something new. So I'm smiling at the war of words between Penny Hardaway and Rick Barnes. Hardaway is clearly the aggressor right now in this battle. The former NBA star and first year Memphis Tigers head coach is none too pleased with Barnes accusing his players of flopping in the game that got played a few days ago. The fact is they ... More

That was weird. I'm referring to the finish of the Monday night football game between the Saints and Panthers. I can't really put it in the bad beat category as the Panthers squandered a couple of really good scoring chances that might have made them relatively easy winners.  But if you had a Saints -6 ticket, you've got to be shaking your head at ...
