Cokin’s Corner, Friday 6/16/17

  • June 15, 2017

One of my quick blogs tonight, with a brief recap of the prior day’s results, the daily plug for the consulting service and the Friday free play.

My Thursday was a mundane 1-2. No complaints as the two losers were simply wrong sides. I like my chances of snaring a nice profit tonight, as I’ve already played two games and might be adding a couple more during the day if the market cooperates.

My service includes the following: All my plays, emailed with analysis at the same time I play them myself. Plus, my daily Pros vs. Joes reports, as well as my line calculations for the entire schedule. I like to think this is as full service as it gets, so if that sounds like something you’re up for, sign up for the Summer Special. Do that via the menu on this page or email me at for more elaborate details.

The Thursday free play was a bust from the outset as the Twins jumped all over Ariel Miranda and easily defeated the Twins. Here’s the Friday free play.

GIANTS at ROCKIES (Samardzija vs. Senzatela)

Take: GIANTS -101

Jeff Samardzija might be just 2-8 pitcher for the Giants. But he’s pitching good baseball, and is commanding all five of his pitches. He’s simply not getting anything in the way of good fortune.

But I believe there’s now some real value in backing Samardzija as bettors are simply looking at the 2-8 record and betting against him. I can virtually guarantee that the Rockies will be one of the two highest ticket percentage counts on the Friday schedule.

Buster Posey will be sitting out this game for the Giants, but I think you’ll see the sharper dollars on San Francisco here. The early money line movement indicates just that, with the price having dropped a couple of pennies.

I might as well add that I believe we’re starting to see what I feel is an inevitable regression on the part of Rockies rookie righty Antonio Senzatela.

The oddsmakers are speaking with the line being where it is for this game. The Giants are a bad road team, and they’ve got a 2-8 pitcher on the hill against a Colorado entry that has been a cash cow all season. I’ll fade the public here and will back the Giants to get the win tonight at Coors.
