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 them that I’ll use as today’s free play.
BRAVES (Foltynewicz) at METS (deGrom)
Take: METS -1
Mets are about as go with as it gets right now. Foltynewicz looked really good in his first start back up with the big club, but has already started regressing and was not at all good last time out. Certainly no issues backing deGrom, especially against a team he lost to in this park last time he faced them. Steep price for fairly obvious reasons, and I like to reduce liability on this type. So I’ll go the -1 route by splitting the Mets, half on the money line and half on the runs line.
