2:56 PM ET: Norway Defeats Scotland, Three Streakers At 14
Norway's U-21 team just took down Scotland at home, 1-0. With that victory, Tacaws has moved into a first-place tie with co-leaders: travtheman87 and JHill34. For all those that have been wondering, JHill34 is not ESPN.com columnist Jemele Hill. Our Insider's version of the Streak winner has the all-time record of 15 consecutive wins, but that record is in serious jeopardy. Also, last Thursday during The StreakMaster chat, an idea was suggested that I shave my head bald if a streak hit 15. Although I refuse to shave off my newly frosted tips, I am now taking suggestions on my new Facebook page on what to do if someone reaches 20 wins in a row.

Be sure to listen to Thursday's Fantasy Focus Podcast when Nate Ravitz and Matthew Berry bring me, The StreakMaster on the show to talk Streak, all things fantasy and of course, 90210.

10:19 AM ET: Monday Night Football Issues
Last night after the Vikings and the Packers game on ESPN, the next matchups on our board (Denver vs. Oakland and longest TD play) became locked while we tried to extend the matchups for Streakers to pick. Unfortunately, we ran into some technical difficulties and were not able to unlock them. We are working on this issue so it will not occur in the future. Keep streaking everybody!

Today's Preview
The U-21 Euro Championship makes its debut on our board with Scotland on the road in Denmark. Scotland is favored in the match with the draw but just by a few percentage points. In the evening, the Rockies try to continue their playoff push in Atlanta, but with time running out they need a win today to stay alive. The Braves are favored -117 going up against Colorado's ace Aaron Cook. The Cubbies try to stay on top of the NL Central as they take on their arch-rivals in St. Louis. The Cubbies get the edge at -117 as well but don't sleep on the Cards. The WNBA finishes off our night with the Seattle Storm on the road against the Sacramento Monarchs. The Sue Bird led Storm are underdogs and rightfully so, by 4.5 points but I'd take the Storm here.

Pitchers Duel in Boston: Rays @ Sox: Which Ace will have MORE STRIKEOUTS?
Two stud pitchers take the hill in this very important game at Fenway Park. In this strikeout matchup, they seem to be dead even with 33 strikeouts a piece in their last 5 starts. But with the Sox at home, Dice-K gets our pick at Streak Headquarters.

Yesterday's Results: You guys can't be taken down! 61.1% overall winning PCT, another day over 60? Wow, I'm not sure if these matchups are too easy or you all are on a hot streak, I am hoping for the latter. Anyway, the top streak breaker of the day were the Minnesota Vikings whom 65% of users picked in that matchup (should have listened to the StreakMaster) but the Broncos saved the day with their pounding over the Raiders 41-14, earning them the top streak extender of the night. Two leaders have reached 14, but entries with 13 are breathing down their neck...Can they all hang on?
