Cokin’s Corner, Friday 3/8/19

  • March 7, 2019

Tournament time means late nights for me updating what took place on teams that won and are moving on to play the next day. So I probably won’t be doing much in the way of commentary for a good number of days.

But the recaps and daily free plays will always be here. i split the two basketball plays on Thursday. As usual, the winner was a blowout and I lost the coin flip. Weber State was a walk in the park, Niagara pulled mu usual late fade and lost to Monmouth. It’s really uncanny how that last media timeout has been the signal for the bad finishes to click in, but that’s just how it runs sometimes. I did manage a small profit for the day thanks to a White Sox 0.5x winner in baseball.

Here’s the Friday free play.

855 NORTHERN ILLINOIS at 856 BALL STATE

Take: NORTHERN ILLINOIS +5

Final weekend of the regular season, many teams are more focused on the upcoming conference tournaments. So it’s not a bad idea to look for teams who figure to have a little extra motivation for the regular season finales. Northern Illinois dropped a 72-71 decision to Ball State earlier, so i imagine the Huskies would like to get revenge tonight. It certainly doesn’t hurt that the Cardinals have been horrible in the chalk role. I’ll side with Northern Illinois plus the points.
