Today's Preview: Kicking things off at 8:00 a.m. is the U.S. Men's basketball team taking on Angola. The Americans are heavily favored to win the game therefore we created a prop between 'Melo and Angola's leading scorer of the game. In their first game against Germany, Eduardo Mingas led Angola with 24 points while Carmelo only had 3 against China. Look for 'Melo to bounce back today but I'm not sure about 20-plus. Our first beach volleyball matchup is at 10:00 a.m. with the U.S. squad of Jacob Gibb and Sean Rosenthal against the German team of Julius Brink and Christoph Dieckmann. The third qualifying round of the UEFA champions league starts today as well with our featured matchup at 4:00 p.m. featuring Slavia Prague on the road against ACF Fiorentina who get slight edge on their home pitch. A little ATP action to rounds up the afternoon segment then at 10:21 p.m. Michael Phelps goes for his fourth gold medal in the 200 meter butterfly. We have him up against the field and he is still highly favored, what a story this guy is. Some MLB lines for you: Tigers -120, Marlins -120, Yankees -125, Astros -120, Phillies -125. Possible 5-win day, somebody could be making some serious moves by Wednesday!

Best bets: Angola, Germany Volleyball, Phillies and Phelps.

Yesterday's Results: Streakers are starting to catch fire lately and last night's winning PCT of 81.1% proved that theory true. Pedro looked like the Pedro of old with only 1 earned run allowed on 3 hits in 6 innings of work. He gave 94% of users the win, good for the biggest of the day. The biggest streak breaker was the Phillies as they were taken down again by the Dodgers late last night. Two leaders with 9 sit on top of the leaderboard.
