Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 12/25/16
I’m taking a few days off from blogging, but the daily free plays will still be here, so make sure to check in! Regular blogs will resume on Tuesday.
Merry Christmas to all, and here’s my Saturday free play (analysis will also return on Tuesday).
Nice job by the Packers as the Saturday free play. Here’s today’s comp.
127 RAVENS at 128 STEELERS
Take: STEELERS -6 (some -5.5 available as of now)
I like the spot for Pittsburgh, but so do the bettors and the line is higher than it really ought to be. One of those games where the math says the dog is the right side, but my eyes tell me they’re not. I’m just not seeing the Ravens as anything close to a good team right now as the defense seems to be wearing down and the offense isn’t very good. All about turnovers probably. If Big Ben doesn’t try and force the issue and turn into Santa with the giveaways, I think the Steelers could win this easily. The betting line offers what amounts to negative value, but I’ve still got to side with the Steelers.
