England v New Zealand, from 11:00
England lead the series 1-0 as they take on New Zealand at Trent Bridge in the second Test that begins on Friday...
Ed Hawkins says: "The average first-innings score in the last 13 at Trent Bridge is 292. That's probably a bit higher than many would have thought. Eight of those matches were won by the side batting first so the toss-winning skip should be prepared to be bold.
"Just like at Lord's, the side that bats first will need to negotiate a tricky first hour. There's not a huge amount of confidence that either can manage it to be fair.
"Shorting the first-innings runs lines may well be the best option. We can envisage a price in the mid 290s, possibly higher. Bet the runs lines here. India thumped England by nine wickets bowling first at the venue in August.
"No rain is forecast currently for the first four days although there is plenty of cloud cover to cheer the bowlers."
Ed's bet: Back New Zealand @ 2.8815/8
Pakistan v West Indies, 12:00
It's game two in the series on Friday and our previewer expects the batters to dominate the bowlers in sweltering Multan on Friday.
Ed Hawkins says: "Pakistan are 1.402/5 with West Indies 3.4012/5. It's a big old gap between two teams who had a ding-dong affair in game one.
"Still, that's ok. Having watched the prices a trade strategy is clear. But it requires two things; one West Indies batting first. And two, them batting well. When the visitors were poised for a big total, they hit 2.305/4 in-play.
"Unfortunately if Pakistan bat first we don't see much room for manoeuvre. Their starting price would suggest that if they were to bat first they would be on for 320."
Ed's bet: (1pt) Back Imam-ul-Haq top Pakistan bat 3.7511/4
Alan Dudman has all the stats, movers and angles for the afternoon and evening horse racing action on Friday...
Alan says: "In terms of quality, the feature of the day is the 15:30 York 1m Listed Ganton Stakes and we'll be greeting the return of 112-rated Mohaafeth.
"It's the first UK run of the year for this exciting William Haggas colt judged on his 2021 form, who was last seen running against Lord North out in Meydan in March in Group 1 company. Haggas is 2-6 on the Knavesmire this term at 33% and does show a level stakes profit of +5.00 - which is pretty decent from his 2-6 thus far considering they would mostly be fancied runners in the betting.
"The native Yorkshireman is reaching for the tongue-tie today for his one-time Derby hope, and remember he was the 3yo who was a late withdrawal at Epsom due to spot of rain. He's a horse who must have quick ground, and having tried 1m2f, he's back down to 1m for this afternoon - and could be a cut above these rivals. "
Alan's bet: Back Mohaafeth @ 2.26/5
Austria v France, 19:45
Dan Fitch previews tonight's Nations League matches, and picks a wager for each, including a Bet Builder for the World champions' clash against Ralf Rangnick's new charges...
Dan says: "The Nations League holders France have yet to win a game, as they look to defend their title. They followed a 2-1 opening defeat to Denmark, with a 1-1 draw with Croatia and surrendered the lead on both occasions.
"Austria beat Croatia 3-0 and then lost 2-1 to Denmark, so should be competitive. Both teams to score and goals in both halves, is priced at 2.255/4."
Dan's bet: Back both teams to score and goals in both halves @ 2.255/4
