4:54 PM ET: Barcelona Just Broke My Heart
Just when I thought things were looking up, Lionel Messi has to shatter my dreams by scoring two goals in the final five minutes of game. Myself and 0.8% of Streakers could be leading the month of October right now, but no, Shakhtar Donetsk can't finish Barcelona off, not even for a draw. Maybe the Phillies will choke and give up their 3-0 lead right now, yeah right. Who am I kidding?

Today's Preview
The UEFA Champions League kicks off our day once again with two matchups at 2:45 p.m. On ESPN Deportes, Thierry Henry and Barcelona take on Shakhtar Donetsk. Streakers overwhelmingly like Barcelona here but odds only have them as a slight favorite. On ESPN2, Liverpool hosts PSV Eindhoven. With Liverpool heavily favored, we put a total goals prop on the board at 2.5.

The MLB playoffs start up tonight with games at 3:00, 6:30 and 10:00 p.m. The favorites are the Phillies -200, Cubs -155, and Angels -132. If your team is out of the playoffs, like my Mets, and you refuse to watch baseball, we have some college football lined up for you on ESPN with Boise State hosting Louisiana Tech. This matchup features Boise State's first half points against the total points of La Tech.

WNBA Finals (Game 1) Detroit @ San Antonio: How many POINTS WILL BE SCORED?
The WNBA Finals begins tonight on ESPN2 with the Eastern Conference Champion, Detroit Shock against the West Champs, San Antonio Silver Stars. With the Stars favored at home, I decided to put a total points scored prop on the board. The line is 146.5, so what do you think? Higher or lower?

Yesterday's Results:
We have our first (unofficial) winner of September! Ddpayton100 is our winner with 55 wins last month, with a solid .630 winning percentage. As for yesterday, Streakers made me look bad once again finishing with a 78.4 overall winning percentage. The StreakMaster needs to make some changes around here.
