Today's Preview
World Cup qualifying takes center stage at 1 p.m. ET with the Netherlands at Norway. The Dutch are favored after a strong Euro 2008 showing, but watch out for the home squad who could easily pull off an upset. The United States visits Trinidad and Tobago (ESPN, 8:11 p.m. ET) in a qualifying match and is favored slightly. The United States defeated Trinidad and Tobago 3-0 at home last month and has already qualified in their group. If you're thinking about taking the United States, be aware that their starters might sit or play fewer minutes during this game.

In the NHL, the undefeated New York Rangers are favored at home against the Buffalo Sabres at 7 p.m. ET. The Phoenix Coyotes are also favored when they host the Chicago Blackhawks at 8:30 p.m. ET.



NLCS Game 5: Philadelphia Phillies at Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers looks to avoid elimination at home. Philadelphia has all the momentum after winning Game 4 on the road and are favored to win the series tonight with a minus-120 line. Chad Billingsley needs to pitch the game of his life and get some help on offense from Manny Ramirez to send the series back to Philadelphia.

Yesterday's Results:
There wasn't a lot of movement on our leaderboard even though Streakers only had a 48.8 overall winning percentage. The top streak-breaker was the Boston Red Sox, now down 3-1 to the Rays in the ALCS. Our leader is still at 16 after taking the day off.
