Show Bio

I've been writing about the NFL and a host of other sports for the UK's top daily betting paper the Racing Post for more than 20 years. An incurable Browns fan (1-31 survivor), I also specialise in all kinds of motorsport betting including F1, MotoGP, IndyCar and NASCAR.

Welcome to another terrific Tuesday of sports. The brooms were out last night as the Colorado Avalanche completed a sweep in their series against the Edmonton Oilers to punch a ticket to the Stanley Cup Finals. The Rangers and Lightning will continue their battle to join them tonight and we also have a big MLB slate, so let’s get straight to making your next bet better!

About Last Night

Avs clinch series in overtime
The Oilers led 3-1 and 4-2 during Game 4 against the Avalanche, but Colorado came through to win 6-5 in overtime and seal a 4-0 series win. FanDuel Sportsbook now has the Avalanche as -210 favorites for the Stanley Cup, with the Lightning and Rangers both at +400.

Low-scoring day in MLB
A small 6-game Monday MLB slate was further reduced when the Rangers vs Guardians game was postponed, and only 7 teams managed to score a run as there were 3 shutouts in the 5 games! The Reds beat the D-Backs 7-0, the Blue Jays beat the Royals 8-0 and the Red Sox beat the Angels 1-0. The Mariners took down the Astros 7-4 and the Mets beat the Padres 11-5 in the other games.

Today’s Slate

All eyes on the champions
The Tampa Bay Lightning just avoided falling into a 0-3 hole against the Rangers in Game 3, but they need another home win in Game 4, which is on ESPN at 8:00 pm ET tonight. Check out today’s Rangers vs Lightning preview.

16 MLB games today
We have an expanded 16-game MLB slate today as the Rangers and Guardians are playing a doubleheader, with the first game at 3:10 pm ET. Dodgers vs White Sox is on TBS at 8:10 pm ET. Check out today’s MLB game previews.

Best Bet of the Day

Over 7.5 runs in Colorado Rockies vs San Francisco Giants
9:45 pm ET

The Giants are the second-most profitable team for overs this season. The last time they played at home the series had games with 16, 25 and 12 total runs. We need only 8 for an over tonight, which should be no issue. Colorado is just behind San Francisco as the fourth most-profitable team for overs. The Rockies have had the worst bullpen for quite some time, and the Giants haven’t been far behind. They just had a day off, but the relief pitching quality is still not high enough to overcome the bats in this game. Read our full game preview for Rockies vs Giants.
