Scottish Cup Match Postponed at 3:24 p.m. ET
The eagerly awaited clash between Vale of Leithen and Inverurie Locos will not take place this afternoon because of a "frozen pitch."


Thanks for the help, Simon.

Everybody Loses Eight in a Row, Right? at 3:12 p.m. ET
The StreakMaster has been getting some grief over his past few picks, but the truth is, he has been picking against the crowd lately. Guess it has not been working according to plan, whoops. As for the Golf matchup today, Simon Dyson couldn't beat Rory Sabbatini! Why, Simon, why? The scoring was a little messed up this morning due to the tournament website incorrect leaderboard, but thank you all for being patient until it was fixed.

Today's Preview
It's another five-sport day at Streak Headquarters, with competitions from three different continents. We have a wide array of matchups to choose from, including an unusual Thursday Night Football offering.

The morning kicks off with an early-bird (or should that be night owl?) golf special, as Rory Sabbatini is matched up against Simon Dyson in the Alfred Dunhill Championship. The early returns show Streakers favoring Sabbatini, who may have the home-field advantage playing in his native South Africa. Get your picks in early - this matchup locks at 5 AM Eastern!

At a more decent hour, there's a total-goals offering for the third-round Scottish Cup match between Inverurie Locos and Vale of Leithen. In this match, any extra-time goals will count towards the total.

NFL - Drew Brees passing yards total?
The Saints visit Chicago for Thursday Night Football, and Brees will be in the limelight. Will the Saints' passing attack stay on record pace against the Bears defense? Brees has averaged over 300 yards-per-game - but don't forget that this game is in a December chill, at Soldier Field.

In our late game, two of the best young teams in the Western Conference face each other as Brandon Roy and the Portland Trail Blazers visit Salt Lake City to take on Deron Williams and the Jazz. Carlos Boozer is expected to miss the game, but Paul Millsap is a more than adequate replacement. Expect this game to go down to the wire.

Yesterday's Results
Led by a Real Madrid romp, Streakers cruised to their fourth straight winning day. It would have been even better had not Andre Iguodala bested LeBron James in an exciting NBA prop offering - while King James outscored Andre 29-27, the Sixer's nine rebounds more than made up the difference.
