3:12 PM ET: Showing Monthly Leaders Some Love
The million dollar grand prize (for a streak of 25 consecutive picks in a row) often overshadows our monthly leaders. Leading the monthly contest is just as impressive as going for the 25-game win streak. In order to win this part of the game, you have to visit the game multiple times per day and not only pick the games, but get them correct. The leader right now is ddpayton100 with 42 wins this month. Anybody on the leaderboard has a chance to take her down with six days left, so good luck to all. Forty-two wins is impressive and for October, I think I'm going to switch my efforts towards winning the month just to showcase my talent even more. Good luck trying to win next month, Streakers.

Today's Preview
The Tour Championship tees off today so I decided to put two golf props on the board. First at 11:50 a.m., Chad Campbell goes up against Bubba Watson in our head-to-head "lowest score after nine holes" matchup. Our second golf matchup features Vijay Singh against Camilo Villegas in a nine-hole matchup as well. Campbell and Singh are favored to win their respective pairings but with our nine-hole props, anything can happen. At 9:00 p.m. on ESPN2, David Beckham and the LA Galaxy take on the Chicago Fire. The Fire are favored to win outright at home even with the Galaxy receiving the draw. MLB odds for the day: Cardinals -115, Cubs -112, Twins -145, Dodgers -125, and Giants -111.

NCAA Football (USC @ Oregon St.): Which team will be the LAST TO SCORE?
The top-ranked Trojans are in Beaver country for the first time since their shocking loss to Oregon State in 2006. USC is favored to win the game by 26 so we’re wondering, "Which team will be the last to score?” With USC expected to blow out Oregon State, I have to give USC the edge to win our prop even though there is a decent chance the Beavers could score last.

Yesterday's Notes:
Streaker's sure know how to get some wins, as proven by the astonishing 68.7% overall winning PCT. Our leader harry4312 has come out of nowhere to take the lead with 16 wins in a row. Streakers did get lucky with the Angels barely getting past the Mariners in a 6-5 ball game. 95% of Streakers who played this matchup received the win and were part of yesterday's top streak extender's club.
