Cokin’s Corner, Monday 6/17/19

I guess it's really no surprise that with things the way they are this season, we had to get a record broken. First of many, no doubt. This one took place at Coors Field, where the Padres and Rockies set a new record for most runs scored in a four-game series. Fittingly, it was mostly the fault of a bullpen, in this case that of the Rockies. Their relief ... More

Taking a day off from the blog. Back tomorrow. Enjoy your Sunday! More

Cokin’s Corner, Saturday 6/15/19

The usual Saturday morning quick hit, with just the recap for the prior night and today's free play. I split a pair on Friday, missing by a mile with the Marlins but getting home easily with the White Sox and the scoring hot Lucas Giolito. Here's the Saturday free play. CUBS (Darvish) at DODGERS (Buehler) Take: F5 UNDER 4.5 There's no way I can ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Friday 6/14/19

The final game of the NBA season was center stage last night for obvious reasons. Therefore, I don't imagine many folks saw what took place early in the CFL opening night game between Saskatchewan and Hamilton. You can easily search out the play to see it for yourself. Just search "Collaros" on Twitter and you'll really see the video of an illegal head ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Thursday 6/13/19

Congratulations to the St. Louis Blues, the new Stanley Cup champions. The Blues capped off one of the most amazing comebacks of all time with the win at Boston last night. This, of course, refers to the fact that on January 3 of this year, the Blues were dead last in the entire league, #31 out of 31 in points. For a team dead and buried to turn it around ... More

I've been locked in pretty well with the golf lately. Winner two weeks back with Patrick Cantlay and my two picks for last week were Lowry and Simpson, who finished tied for second. Here's my duo fo this week's US Open. PATRICK CANTLAY +1800 XANDER SCHAUFFELE +2500 Shop around if able for prices, you might be able to find a little better. Good ... More

Very much up against the clock, so I'll just publish the free play for tonight. Good results last night, let's see about more of the same today. RED SOX/NATIONALS +150 money line parlay. Good luck! More

Cokin’s Corner, Monday 6/10/19

We could be bringing down the curtain on the NBA season tonight. The Raptors are back home in Toronto with a chance to close out the Golden State Warriors. Here's the portion I'm taking for a wager this evening. WARRIORS at RAPTORS Take: WARRIORS +0.5 FIRST QUARTER Elimination game for Golden State and I don't think they're just going to roll ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 6/9/19

Game Six between the Bruins and Blues tonight with St. Louis positioned to win its first ever Stanley Cup. The Blues have some edges here. They're a little healthier and I wouldn't rule out a mental edge with the Bruins perhaps still frustrated with the Game Five officiating. But my lean is with Boston. I still believe they're the better hockey team ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Friday 6/7/19

It's not an elimination game, but it's pretty close. A loss at home on Friday evening and the Golden State Warriors will be on the brink of coughing up their crown to the surging Toronto Raptors. There's no question that the Warriors have a legitimate excuse for their issues in this series. The Kevin Durant injury has played a huge role, and he's hardly ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Wednesday 6/5/19

My craziest game of the season took place on Tuesday night. I had the Orioles as my only selection, and it looked like a Baltimore winner with no real sweat. The Birds jumped out to a 4-0 lead and by the time the ninth inning rolled around, Baltimore had expanded its lead to 12-5. But you never really know with that awful Orioles bullpen. That opinion was ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Tuesday 6/4/19

This will have to be a very quick edition, as I'm overloaded with commitments today. No plays for me last night, and as I'm intent on getting lineup info before proceeding with anything in MLB tonight, I won't have anything set until this afternoon. Therefore, today's free play is just an opinion for now. Whether it makes the card is still to be ... More
