Today's Preview
Today’s matchup board is loaded, from soccer to football to baseball. The English Premier league makes its Streak debut with West Bromwich on the road against Bolton. With the draw given to the road team, it is basically a 50-50 matchup. At noon, a great matchup is set with Virginia Tech on ESPN and Northwestern on ESPN2 featuring the prop matchup "who will have the higher winning margin". V-Tech is favored by 9 and Northwestern by 11, so it should be fun switching back and forth between the two games. A potential upset special is on ABC at 3:30 p.m. with a veteran Utah team at the Big House to face a young Michigan squad. More college football is on our board at 8:00 p.m. with Alabama +5 at Clemson, followed by three intriguing props that should get a lot of play. In MLB action the Red Sox, Indians, Reds, DBacks and Rockies are all favored.

NCAA Football (Top 25 Special): Which side will record a HIGHER TOTAL?
On ESPN, two top 25 teams with top-tier quarterbacks go at it on the gridiron. Missouri and Heisman candidate Chase Daniel are favored to beat Juice Williams and Illinois by 9. So we made the prop interesting, by putting Illinois longest rushing touchdown against the winning margin by Missouri. It’s basically a toss-up, but there is slim chance Juice Williams breaks loose for a long TD or maybe Illinois can even pull an upset.

Yesterday's Notes: A solid day overall for Streakers with a 66.7% winning PCT. Our leader SRudnicki1 is now at 10! The biggest breaker of the day was Phil Mickelson to no real surprise but everything played out for most Streakers as the heavy favored Chicago Cubs barely got by Philly as the day's biggest streak extender.
