19 Results for month: 08/2019

Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 9/1/19

Football week is complete, as I won't be involved in the final two college games. Ended up going 5-6 overall, which is disappointing. 11-8 season to date is okay, but lots of room for improvement. The three college football free plays posted here went 2-1. Managed to earn a small profit altogether for August, fourth straight positive month, though none of ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Friday 8/30/19

It's that time. I like to find one value team, or at least one with value in my eyes, to key for a Super Bowl future in the NFL. I realize that playing earlier can often yield a better potential return. But I like to get a feel for teams in the preseason before taking the plunge. My play last year was on the Rams, and while they fell short in the Super ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Thursday 8/29/19

Clock is my enemy this morning. No results last night as I had no action, but plenty in play tonight. Two colleges, two NFLX and one baseball that I'll post here as a free play. Packages available at Cokin's Picks, as well as a single game in college for those just looking for a solitary spot. PADRES (Paddack) at GIANTS (Rodriguez) Take: GIANTS ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Wednesday 8/28/19

The college season begins in earnest tomorrow night following an exciting pair of Week Zero games that should have whetted the appetite of all fans. I'm on a total of nine games altogether, and don't anticipate adding anything. Subscribers to my personal service (package available here at Cokin's Picks) get all the plays, as well as whatever I have in ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Tuesday 8/27/19

After a day off from wagering on Monday, back in action tonight with one game. I'll post that here as the free play. Back with more tomorrow, including a college football comp for the weekend. RED SOX (Porcello) at ROCKIES (Garcia) Take: ROCKIES F5 +115 Standard play for me as I like backing debuting big league pitchers. Built in edge first time ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 8/25/19

Up against the clock this morning, so this will be very abbreviated. I'll try to size up the Andrew Luck stunner in tomorrow's blog. I split Saturday, with another NFLX winner on the Bears (6-2 on those to date) and a tough miss on the diamond with the Padres. Deeper than usual MLB card today and one of my plays is today's free selection. REDS (Bauer) ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Saturday 8/24/19

Lots of action today with a full slate in baseball, a six-pack in NFLX and the first two college games of the brand new system. I won't be doing much myself as I passed on the two colleges (nine plays already made for next week though) and have only one MLB play as of now. I also played one of the NFLX games (5-2 thus far), and I'll share that here as the ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Friday 8/23/19

Quick edition today. I split my two NFLX plays last night, winning the Redskins and losing the Jaguars. NFLX now 5-2 on the season. The MLB winning streak ended as the Yankees lost at Oakland, but no beefs with the overall results on the diamond. Blank on the two football games tonight, but will be involved with a couple on the diamond. Here's one of ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Thursday 8/22/19

Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. A prime example took place for me on Wednesday evening as the Mets rallied from a 3-2 tenth inning deficit to steal a 4-3 win over the Indians. This game probably should have finished 3-2 Tribe, but pitcher Brad Hand didn't cover first on what likely would have been a 3-6-1 DP to close out the proceedings. That ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Wednesday 8/21/19

Nice winner with the only Tuesday play, as the Rangers F5 wager came through on the arm of debuting rookie Burke. No free play today, as I'm playing just one baseball game and that will be for my personal service subscribers. All my plays are included with the college football season subscription available at the Cokin's Picks menu. I also have one ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Tuesday 8/20/19

My focus is mostly on college football, and I'm now up to nine plays for the opening week of the season. I won't be involved with either of the two matchups this week, but am obviously ready to roll next week. Meanwhile, I'm not ignoring baseball and will be making a Tuesday play on the opener (it's now actually Game Two) of the doubleheader between ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Saturday 8/17/19

There really is an advantage to be garnered by digging deep for meaningful info on these August NFL exhibitions. I'm 3-0 with the Bills winner on Friday night, and my only disappointment is that I haven't played more games in these first two weeks. But no complaints to be sure. Note that ALL my plays are included with any of the packages on the Cokin's ... More
