Today's Preview
The UEFA Champions League continues with two matchups at 2:45 p.m. ET. First, Liverpool (34 percent chance of winning) takes on Atletico Madrid (38 percent) on ESPN2 in a "straight-up" matchup, which once again means if a draw occurs it will be ruled as a "push." In the same timeslot, two top clubs, Barcelona and Chelsea are in action as heavy favorites in their respective matches. I matched the teams up against each other in a "more goals" matchup.

With the World Series starting at 8 p.m. ET, I put two player props on the board. Sluggers Ryan Howard and Evan Longoria battle it out for a "more total bases" matchup while starters Cole Hamels and Scott Kazmir square off for a "fewer" hits matchup.

NHL favorites of the night: New Jersey Devils, St.Louis Blues and the Chicago Blackhawks


World Series, Game 1: Philadelphia Phillies at Tampa Bay Rays
The World Series is here! At 8 p.m. on FOX, the Rays look to use home-field advantage to draw first blood when they host the Phillies. Currently, Las Vegas has the Phillies favored at minus-115. With Hamels on the hill, I have to take their side. Look for the Phillies to take Game 1, 5-3.

Yesterday's Results:
Ouch! Tuesday was a rough one for Streakers, finishing with a 27.7 overall winning percentage. The No. 1 heartbreaker was Real Madrid, who lost on the road to Juventus, 2-1. Congratulations to the 1.9 percent who picked this matchup correct, including myself, The StreakMaster! Meanwhile, our picky leader sits at a respectable, 15 wins in a row.
