Cokin’s Corner, Friday 8/31/18

  • August 31, 2018

Quick blog tonight as I’m running through my final looks at the weekend colleges. Nice start to the new season here. UCF was free money on Thursday and Tulane +7 got home when the Green Wave lost in OT but only by xix in a thriller with Wake Forest.

I’ve got five more colleges on tap for the weekend as of now. Get all my plays by subscribing to one of the packages available at the “Cokin’s Picks” menu to the right of the page. Email me at cokin@cox.net if you’d prefer more detailed information.

The free play for Friday is on a familiar side as this team has been exceedingly good for me lately and I’ll try them again here.

REDS (Bailey) at CARDINALS (Gomber)

Take: CARDINALS -1.5 -110

Only one way to play here. The Reds are off two very long games vs. the Brewers and lost them both. Makes this a tough spot for a team playing out the string. The Cardinals remain play on material and even with some injury issues, this team keeps on winning.  Add in the fact the Reds are an incredible 1-17 when Homer Bailey starts while the Redbirds are 6-0 when Austin Gomber opens. The money line is awfully high, I’d rather lay a very small price and go the Runs Line route with the Cardinals tonight.
