Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 8/19/18

Closing out an exceptionally long day, so this will be as brief as it gets for me. I split my Saturday plays, 1-1 on the diamond, 1-0 NFLX and the lengthy win streak in the CFL finally ended as BC came up short at Toronto. Sunday's free play will be something a little different as I like a pair of big chalk pieces. DIAMONDBACKS/RED SOX No line on ... More

Next weekend at this time, I'll be looking forward to the first college football games of the 2018 campaign. But for now, it's the usual brief weekend blog. My Friday was uneventful, with a 2-2 split. I'm on three plays for Saturday, one in baseball, one in the CFL, and one more in the NFL. Get all my plays by subscribing to one of the packages available ... More

If Hollywood ever decides to do a football remake of "The Picture of Dorian Gray", the title of the film will have to be "The Picture of Tom Brady". In case you missed it, Brady took the field for the first, and most likely the only time this NFL preseason. Big surprise. Brady is still Brady. He looked to be in typical outstanding form as he carved up ... More

Going with a very brief blog tonight as I'm perusing as many NFL team reports as I can to try and gain some edges on this week's exhibition slate. One of the games I like is tonight's clash between the Steelers and Packers, so I'll use that as the daily free play. I'll get back to the regular format on Thursday night. STEELERS at PACKERS Take: PACKERS ... More

One of the teams I thought had a chance to make some positive progress this year was the Oakland A's. But there is no way I saw this coming. We're at the 3/4 mark of the season and rather incredible, the A's are now just one game behind prohibitive favorite Houston in the AL West. I would still have to rate the Astros as the likely winner of the divisi... More

Welcome to the latest edition of Beating A Dead Horse. I honesty hate that cruel expression, but it fits here. Yes, it's yet another installment of the Dave Martinez is the worst in-game manager I've ever seen series. DMart is awful. He makes decisions that indicate to me has has absolutely no feel for strategy. Here's the latest brain fart, and it's ... More

Plenty of observations coming out of the first full week of NFL preseason action, and that will be the focal point of today's edition of The Las Vegas Sportsline, airing 2-3 PM PDT on ESPN Las Vegas, online at lvsportsnetwork.com. One thing we probably won't cover is the suspension of a couple of Jacksonville Jaguars players. Dante Fowler will get a week ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 8/12/18

Usual quick weekend blog. Saturday was good. The Cardinals hung on to complete a very nice opening week of NFL preseason action. 2-1-1 on the diamond, so a solid couple of units in the plus column for the day. My Sunday card looks thin. I have just one MLB play as of now, and that's for my subscribers. So file this one in the added opinion category. ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Saturday 8/11/18

My usual abbreviated weekend blog mode, with just the Friday recap and the Saturday free play. Friday was okay. Winner with the Jets in the NFL. 1-1-1 on the diamond. Tigers were good, I pushed the F5 Indians-White Sox (0-0 after five in a game the Chisox eventually won 1-0 on a Palka walkoff homer), and a peculiar loss on Oakland. The A's hit two bombs in ...

Cokin’s Corner, Friday 8/10/18

It's just one exhibition game. The opposing defense was a collection of mostly second and third unit guys. The actual stat line was nothing spectacular. But make no mistake, the professional debut of Baker Mayfield was more than just a little impressive. The Cleveland Browns have to be ecstatic at the poise and polish displayed by the overall number one ... More

"Give me 20 bucks on the Vikings and an order of parmesan wings." Buffalo Wild Wings is reportedly looking to add sports betting to its menus at locations throughout the country where it's going to be legal.
