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 wonderful Wednesday of sport. Today we have a big MLB slate plus a bunch of midweek MLS matches, and today’s the day you need to get your bets locked in for the 150th British Open Championship golf too. Let’s get straight to making your next bet better!

About Last Night

Dream dozen for our YRFI/NRFI run
It may soon reach the point where we consider scrapping our usual comprehensive coverage of sports and concentrate solely on first-inning run markets. The amazing winning streak of our daily YRFI/NRFI best bets reached 12 yesterday as Keith Schmelter went 2-0 with a double NRFI success — the 6th perfect day in a row! We als0 went 2-0 on MLB props, including a second straight YRFI/NRFI winner from Mark Zinno. There were some hot bats across the MLB parks on Tuesday, as the Giants smashed the Diamondbacks 13-0, the A’s beat the Rangers 14-7 in 12 innings, and the Cardinals beat the Dodgers 7-6.

Today’s Slate

16-game MLB slate
We have bonus baseball today, with the Mariners and Nationals playing a doubleheader to give us a 16-game slate. Brewers vs Twins is being streamed on YouTube at 1:10 pm ET. Read today’s MLB game previews.

10 MLS matches
We have a big midweek MLS slate, with 10 games including Minnesota United vs Sporting Kansas City on ESPN at 8:00 pm ET. Read today’s MLS game previews.

Best Bet of the Day

MLS: Over 3 goals in San Jose Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy
10:05 pm ET, FS1

The LA Galaxy will take on the San Jose Earthquakes tonight in what should be a high-scoring affair. The Galaxy have scored 14 times in their last 5 MLS matches and should keep up that run as they face a San Jose defense that is tied with DC United for the most goals allowed in the league (37). Their attack continues to impress, however. The Earthquakes scored 2 goals in each of their last 2 games and netted twice on the road against LAFC at the end of May. Neither defense has looked very strong this season and the teams should combine for more than 3 goals. Read our full game preview for San Jose Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy.
