Today's Preview
One of the biggest golf event's in the world, the Ryder Cup tees off today at 8:00 a.m. in Kentucky. The Europeans are favored to win day one by a slim margin, but are probably the smart pick here against a Tiger-less USA. The WNBA playoffs continue with Eastern Conference #1 seed Detroit Shock on the road against #4 Indiana Fever, with the road team favored by two points. Five MLB matchups make our board with the odds favoring the Astros -125, Blue Jays -110, Phillies -115, Twins -120 and Rockies -105.

NCAAF (Baylor @ Connecticut): How many POINTS WILL BE SCORED in the game?
A half-hour down the road in UConn country, the Baylor Bears take on the 12-point favorite Huskies. Vegas has set the over/under at 51.5 therefore we made a prop featuring how many total points will be scored. I have seen UConn play a few times and I don't see the final score being this high nor a blowout, so I'd suggest taking the less then 51 side.

Yesterday's Notes:
Fargonauts' 19 game streak has ended! As they say, "all good things must come to an end", but he did put on quite a show (not to mention a scare at Streak Headquarters). Our new leader sits on top with 16 in a row, only 9 away from a cool million. The StreakMaster also guaranteed a Colorado win, but Streakers overwhelmingly chose West Virginia which destroyed even more streaks. The overall win PCT was another low 34.5%.
