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.

Wednesday’s midweek sports action includes NBA, NHL, college basketball and soccer games, so let’s get straight to making your next bet better!

About Last Night

Doncic returns to boost Mavs
Luka Doncic had missed the Dallas Mavericks’ last 3 games, all losses, but was able to return against the Clippers last night, inspiring the team to a 112-104 overtime win. The Lakers weren’t able to overcome the suspension of LeBron James against the Knicks, losing 106-100.

Stars shine in NHL
The Dallas Stars shone brightly in Wednesday’s 3-game NHL slate, beating the 13-5-0 Edmonton Oilers 4-1, while their were also clear wins for the Lightning and Flames.

Best Bet of the Day

New York Rangers ML vs New York Islanders
10pm ET

The New York Rangers visit the New York Islanders to get their first look at the UBS Arena. The new home for the Islanders hasn’t treated them well so far, as they are currently 0-2-0 there, being outscored 8-2 and were shut out on Sunday. This game was already going to be tough enough for the Islanders, but they are also dealing with unavailable players due to Covid. The Rangers have won 5 of their last 6 games and should be in full control of the game. Read our full game preview for Rangers vs Islanders.
