1:33 PM ET: Beat The StreakMaster Mini-Games Group Update
Pigskin Pick'em: 60th place out of 105. I am taking a beating here but I will bounce back like always but with four Streakers already at 29 it's going to be tough to catch them.
Gridiron Challenge: Struggling here as well but I am not doing as bad here. I am only 82 points behind so watch out leaders.
Eliminator Challenge: Tied for first-place with...well basically everyone else in the group. I have already used the Pats, G-Men and Bills. Going with the Steelers this week.
College Pick'em: As a pre-season favorite to win this group, I started off strong leading the way after three weeks but thanks to North Carolina blowing it against Va Tech, I am in 7th place. No worries here though, I will be back on top before you can say, "I love the StreakMaster".

Today's Preview
Major League Baseball takes over our board today, including a few games with playoff implications. The A's are in Texas for an afternoon matchup at 2:05 p.m. against the Rangers, who are favored at -115. Our lone soccer matchup is from the English Carling Cup and features Tottenham at Newcastle. Tottenham gets the slight edge on the road, but it should come down to the final minutes. The Mets look to build off of last night's win and are favored at -130 against the Cubs' ace, Carlos Zambrano. Other MLB odds for the night: Tigers -118, Cardinals -128 and Mariners -125.

AL Central Battle for 1st Place: White Sox @ Twins
Game 2 of this highly important series takes place tonight at 8:10 p.m. in Minnesota. With their lead down to 1.5 the White Sox need a win and turn to Mark Buehrle for a quality start. Personally, I'm not sure Chicago can hang on and I wouldn't be surprised if Mauer and company can snatch the AL Central title.

Yesterday's Notes:
The WNBA does it again! Our leaders that started on top went down thanks to the L.A. Sparks who took down the Seattle Storm. It was actually a rough day all-around with an overall winning PCT of 36.7 percent. If it wasn't for the Red Sox pulling out a victory against Cliff Lee and the Indians, which took down the StreakMaster's streak of five, it could have been a lot worse for Streakers.
