Today's Preview: Once again the U.S. Men's basketball team kicks our day off with Dwyane Wade taking on Lithuania's leading scorer, whoever that may turn out to be at games end. Around noon, the Feyenoord Jubilee Tournament kicks off with Tottenham Hotspur favored against the popular Irish squad, Celtic FC. The second game is scheduled to start at 2:45 with the host team, Feyenoord Rotterdam taking on the heavy underdogs, Borussia Dortmund of Germany. Two of the best teams in the AL battle it out in the Bronx with the Angels taking on the Yankees, with Ervin Santana taking the hill for the Halos and Sidney Ponson for the Yanks. Santana is struggling a little bit, going 0-2 in his last two starts, while Ponson is 4-1 since joining New York. Tonight's prop features injury-prone Pedro Martinez against... well, Pedro Martinez. The Mets plan on using Petey for around 80 pitches but he may not even make it to that point if the Astros have anything to say about it, so we set the over under at 70. All these options leave open the potential for a 5-win day, good luck. Best Bets: Lithuania, Feyenoord Rotterdam, and Tampa Bay.

Yesterday's Notes: Final overall winning PCT for the day checks in at a solid 68.8% with several 4-win days recorded. Most picked winner award split between Nick Flanagan and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Detroit Tigers in the books as the day's most picked loser. New current leader's at streak of 8.
