Rain washed out Thursday's round

1:55 PM ET: Golf props pulled
Remnants of Hurricane Gustav blew through St. Louis today and washed out the first round of the BMW Championship. As such we set both golf props as "Postponed" and anyone who picked them were scored as a "PUSH", as if they didn't happen. Play should resume tomorrow AM and 36 holes are scheduled for Saturday over what's sure to be a soggy course.

12:01 AM ET: Chat With The StreakMaster This Morning at 11:00 AM
Back by popular demand is the SportsNation live chat with me, The StreakMaster this morning at 11:00. Be sure to stop by and ask a question or two!

Today's Preview
The BMW Championship in St. Louis starts off our Thursday. Two pairings make it to the board, starting off at 11:51 a.m. ET with Tim Clark against Geoff Ogilvy. Both golfers have the same odds to win the pairing, both with 7/4 odds but Clark is playing better as of late. The next streak pairing hit the links at 1:41 with Angel Cabrera taking on Rory Sabbatini. Cabrera is the favorite to win this group at 11/8 odds. Not sure if you heard but the NFL season is finally here! The Redskins are on the road taking on Super Bowl champion New York football Giants at 7:00 on NBC. The spread for the game is -4 for the Giants, so we decided to have a total yards prop featuring both starting quarterbacks: Jason Campbell vs. Eli Manning. In our MLB prop of the night, we have Scott Kazmir and his strikeouts against the New York Yankees total hits. Kazmir is averaging 6 strikeouts a start in his last 5 outings while only giving up 4.6 hits in that time. Lastly, the MLS comes back to the board with Colorado visiting Dallas.


NCAA Thursday Night Football: Which matchup will yield a HIGHER total?
Vanderbilt hosts #24 South Carolina tonight in ESPN's Thursday Night Football. The Cammodores are 10-point underdogs, but the prop tonight puts their longest rushing touchdown against the winning margin of South Carolina. We'll see if Vandy can give the Gamecocks a fight and rush for another 13 yard touchdown like they had last week.

Yesterday's Results: A nice looking day for Streakers on the board with a overall winning PCT of 65.4%. There was no major upset, which is very rare for our game but that means everyone moves up on the leaderboards. The top streak extender was Serena Williams who defeated her sister Venus in a back and forth battle at the U.S. Open. 82.6% of entries were picked correctly in that matchup. We have two Streakers who have reached 9, sitting on top of the leaderboard.
