Today's Preview
It was difficult to find suitable matchups for today's board, but I did however, find three matchups that meet the game's criteria. Starting things off at 8:00 a.m. is a tennis match from the ATP Kremlin Cup taking place in Moscow, Russia. Fabrice Santoro is the favorite but he will face a tough opponent in Denis Istomin, who knocked off No. 6 seeded Michael Llodra yesterday. At 8:00 p.m., Montreal and Joe Public square off in the CONCACAF Champions League. Our prop asks, how many total goals will be scored? In the first leg of their matchup, Montreal defeated Joe Public 2-to-0 at home. We'll see what happens in leg number two.

Cricket (Australia vs. India): How many NUMBER OF RUNS will be scored when the FIRST WICKET FALLS?
With a limited number of matchups to choose from, I decided to give Cricket a try. Australia and India are two great teams going head-to-head for the Border Gavaskar Trophy. Australia has been dominant in Cricket for a very long time, but some Cricket experts consider India to actually be the favorite to win this match. With no clear-cut odds, the matchup will instead ask the question, how many number of runs will be scored when the first wicket falls? The first wicket could go down in minutes or better yet, hours. Please be patient with me as it may take some time to enter the result in the early morning hours. Enjoy the match!
