Cokin’s Corner, Thursday 5/30/19

Quick hit this morning as the free play for the day gets started at 10AM Pacific/1PM Eastern, so let's get right to that. Back with a more expanded edition tomorrow. GIANTS (Beede) at MARLINS (Alcantara) Take: GIANTS -105 Good luck and have a great day! More

Cokin’s Corner, Wednesday 5/29/19

Busy morning with time at a premium, so just the quick recap from last night and today's free play. I split last night, winning with the small favorite Twins and losing with the small dog Pirates, so nothing accomplished either way. I've got two plays I'm set on as of now for Wednesday, with one of them being a F5 Over/Under. I'll use that one as the ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Tuesday 5/28/19

Cody Bellinger put on another terrific show on Monday night as the Dodgers got the win at home against the Mets. At least I think he did. All I got to see was a couple highlights. That's because Major League Baseball continues to insist on keeping this utterly stupid ho e market blackout rule in place. There's not way to describe this action as ... More

Happy holiday to all. A rare weekday off from the radio show, but The Las Vegas Sportsline will return on Tuesday. We air 2-3 PDT on ESPN Las Vegas, and can also be heard online at LVSportsNetwork.com. Sunday was a quiet but profitable day as I played only the Tampa Bay Rays. They led wire to wire at Cleveland, so a nice little pickup for the day. I ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 5/26/19

My usual ultra-abbreviated Sunday edition. Saturday was a bitter pill of sorts. I went 1-2 snd the one winner was a nice price with the Orioles coming through. But the other two plays featured blown saves, so this was what a could or should have been day. I've got just one play as of now for Sunday, so the comp in this space is just an added opinion, and ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Saturday 5/25/19

I'm getting an early start on the Saturday baseball slate. MLB has been quite solid lately, although I did miss with the Blue Jays on Friday night. That game was decided on a brutal throwing error by Toronto reliever Daniel Hudson, and for the life of me I will never figure out why pitchers are unable to even come remotely close to the target when throwing ...

Cokin’s Corner, Friday 5/24/19

Things can certainly change in the blink of an eye. The NBA Eastern Conference Finals series between the Bucks and Raptors is great example. Two games in, this looked like Milwaukee's series. They had pulled out a close opening game, got the easy Game Two win and appeared to have the Raptors on the ropes. Fast forward a small handful of days and the ... More

Cokon’s Corner, Thursday 5/23/19

Short slate today, with a handful of baseball games and the critical Game Five of the NBA Eastern Conference Final series between the Raptors and Bucks. I'll offer an opinion on that game as today's free play, although please note that's all it is. I've got just one baseball play today and that will be my only personal service selection. By the way, 1-1 ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Wednesday 5/22/19

I'm up against the clock this morning. Have to record First Pitch at WagerTalk, post plays, and get the info out to my personal service players, so no time for any commentary. Tuesday was sweet. I lost a half unit play on the Sharks 1P in the NHL. But three dogs all crossed the finish line as winners in baseball, so it was a highly profitable evening. I'm ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Tuesday 5/21/19

Quick blog for me on a late Monday evening. I ended up passing the entire card as fas as the personal plays go, although the free opinion published here on the Rangers held on to win. Tuesday will be much busier as I've already played three baseball games and will also have a small play on the NHL contest. I'll post that one here as the daily free comp. ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Monday 5/20/19

There's one consistency in sports. Once everyone knows the head coach or the manager is going to get fired, there is no point whatsoever in delaying the inevitable. Doing so simply prologs the agony and in fact, often results in the team playing even worse than they had been doing so previously. Good example, the New York Mets. It's common knowledge ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 5/19/19

No controversy coming out of the second leg of this year's Triple Crown. War of Will got a perfect ride and was a clear winner at this year's Preakness. My choice was the 12 horse, and heading to the final turn I thought I had a chance to at least hit the board. The horse was well positioned in his role as a stalker but he simply didn't fire when asked ... More
