Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 3/24/19

  • March 23, 2019

Saturday’s NCAA action started off with a pair of thrillers. LSU got a buzzer beater to nip Maryland and Kentucky managed to stave off a very legit Wofford entry. The rest of the day was a series of blowouts, so not much suspense in the afternoon and evening.

That was fine with me as I played four favorites and coasted to wins on all four. Add in an NHL winner on the Canadiens -1 and the day could not have been better.

I can see the chalk entries doing well again on Sunday. Here’s one I like that i’ll use as the daily free play.

CENTRAL FLORIDA vs. DUKE

Take: DUKE -13

This has blowout written all over it. You wouldn’t think it with Tacko Fall on the floor for UCF, but they’re actually very vulnerable to giving up offensive rebounds. The Blue Devils should win the turnover battle as I don’t like the Knights against a pressure man to man defense. My only worry is Duke chucking up too many threes. They’re really not a great outside shooting team. But if they work the ball Barrett and Williamson will be unstoppable and will get UCF info foul trouble. UCF has to stay close early to have any chance. If the Blue Devils get an early lead they will win by a ton. I’ll give the points with Duke.
