Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 3/31/19

There will be a bit of a change taking place during baseball season as far as the publishing time of this blog is concerned. I'm going to be shifting to mornings for the time being. The reason is simple enough. Most of the daily free plays here are going to be in baseball from now until at least August. I'd rather post these plays at lines that anyone ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Saturday 3/30/19

Sorry for the extreme brevity due to something unforeseen, but just the Saturday free play in this space today. I'll catch up in the Saturday evening/Sunday blog. GIANTS at PADRES Take: PADRES -125 Back late Saturday evening, thanks for stopping by and good luck today! More

Cokin’s Corner, Friday 3/29/19

The brand new baseball season is underway and it sure didn't very long for a statement to get made. The Dodgers can rake. Eight home runs in the very first game of the season is amazing. If this team's staff stays healthy, the Dodgers are looking like a team that could post triple digit wins. This lineup has lethal potential. On the flip side, and this ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Thursday 3/28/19

Funny how things just work out so well sometimes. I'm a big Opening Day guy, love the prospect of watching baseball all day long. So it's one of those days where I'd rather be able to camp out in my favorite old chair and not have to do the radio show. Enter UNLV. There will be a press conference at 2PM to officially welcome the new head basketball ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Wednesday 3/27/19

That's it, the exhibition games are done and the real games are about to begin. Notwithstanding the two games played in Japan between the Mariners and A's, MLB '19 Opening Day is just about here. Quick primer for those who will be wagering. If you're handicapping mostly on the starting pitching you might be better served to focus on F5 options to get ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Tuesday 3/26/19

One of the perks of being one's own boss, at least for the most part, is that I get to call my own shots. Since I really don't have much to write about tonight, I will exercise that option and will simply post the Monday recap and a free opinion for Tuesday. 2-0 Monday as a nice current roll was maintained. Longwood hung tough with DePaul to cover the ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Monday 3/25/19

This is going to be a very quick edition. Ultra-long weekend with all the baskets and the pucks, and I'm ready for a couple of cocktails. I managed to follow the huge Saturday with a solid Sunday, registering a 4-2-1 ledger for the day with the push being a -1 NHL play on the Hurricanes. I'm completely undecided as of now for Monday, so the daily ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 3/24/19

Saturday's NCAA action started off with a pair of thrillers. LSU got a buzzer beater to nip Maryland and Kentucky managed to stave off a very legit Wofford entry. The rest of the day was a series of blowouts, so not much suspense in the afternoon and evening. That was fine with me as I played four favorites and coasted to wins on all four. Add in an NHL ...

Cokin’s Corner, Saturday 3/23/19

Splitsville Friday at the Big Dance for me with two no doubt about it winners and two no doubt about it losers. I'm aggravated with myself for backing off Butler, but hindsight is always 20-20. Nothing else to write about this evening, so I'll just get right to the free play for Saturday. MURRAY STATE vs. FLORIDA STATE Take: FLORIDA STATE ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Friday 3/22/19

Quick blog tonight. Very long day now in the archives, made extra lengthy as I simply had to stay up super late last night to watch Ichiro Suzuki's apparent final game. What a phenomenal career. Next stop, Cooperstown! My Thursday was good enough in the hoops. Big Dance sides are 5-2 thus far, with a winner on NC Central on Wednesday plus the Thursday ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Thursday 3/21/19

The real deal gets rolling on Thursday, with 16 NCAA Tournament battles and a full day of what should be incredible action. I'll be involved with plenty of games, so lots of excitement in store on a personal level. Quick Wednesday recap. I split two hoops but wisely went with only a first period play on the ice, and won that as the Capitals skated to a ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Wednesday 3/20/19

Welcome back, Major League Baseball. Absolutely awesome to be opening the season with a game in Japan between the Athletics and Mariners at a time when viewers will be few and far between. MLB will glow over their great financial health. Just imagine how much the sport would be raking in if they had even a bit of a clue as to what they're doing from a ... More
