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.

It’s another terrific Tuesday of sports as college basketball finally returns! Plus, we have NBA, NHL, and college football action to enjoy. Let’s get straight into it!

About Last Night

Steelers deny Bears to move to 5-3
The Pittsburgh Steelers recovered from a fourth-quarter slump to beat the Chicago Bears 29-27 on Monday Night Football. Like the AFC West, the AFC North also has 4 teams with winning records. The Steelers are +500 with FanDuel Sportsbook to win their division. Find out what Ricky Dimon made of both teams in our Monday Night Football reaction article.

NBA cappers go 6-2 on Monday night 
It was a magic Monday for our NBA handicappers, who went 6-2 on the sides for Monday’s 8 games. Germantas Kneita also cashed both his best player prop bets for Monday! On the court, the Bulls beat the Nets and the Warriors rolled to a 9-1 record with a home win over the Hawks.

Rangers hand Panthers first regulation loss
There were only 3 NHL games yesterday, but they were noteworthy — with the New York Rangers handing the Florida Panthers (10-1-1) their first loss in regulation of the season while the Los Angeles Kings won their 5th game in a row by beating the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Today’s Slate

College basketball begins
There’s no shortage of action tonight with a monster slate of NCAAB games as the college basketball season begins. Check out our previews of all this week’s college basketball here.

NBA contenders in action
We have only 3 NBA games today but there are some strong teams in action and 2 games on TNT, which has Bucks vs 76ers at 7:30pm ET and Trail Blazers vs Clippers at 10pm ET. Read today’s NBA game previews here.

Busy night in the NHL
After only 3 games on Monday, the NHL gets busy tonight with a 10-game slate including the Panthers trying to get back on track against the Devils and the 9-1-0 Carolina Hurricanes taking on the 6-3-2 Tampa Bay Lightning. Read today’s NHL game previews here.

Tuesday night college football
Week 11 in college football gets started tonight and after last week’s #MACtion games produced some great entertainment and a ton of points, we’re hoping for more. Our experts are expecting a bold show from the underdog teams tonight. Check out our previews of all this week’s college football here.

Best Bet of the Day

Kansas Jayhawks -4 vs Michigan State Spartans (NCAAB)
7pm ET, ESPN

Kansas is a national title contender and Michigan State is looking like a second-tier Big Ten team. MSU coach Tom Izzo does a great job improving his team over the course of the season but this looks like a significant mismatch to start the year. The Spartans will rebound the ball but it’s hard to see where their offense is coming from and good effort won’t be enough in the opener. Read our full game preview for Kansas vs Michigan State.

Stat of the Day

Boost of the Day

Tampa Bay Lightning & St. Louis Blues both to win
