Gearing Up for Christmas Day Streak! at 3:01 p.m. ET
In case you have not seen the advertisement on top of the Streak entry page, we are offering a mini-contest for Streakers before this version ends on December 31st. There will be 16 matchups for five NBA games (quick prop bets) and if you win all 16, you will win $100,000 and a free-trip to Phoenix for the NBA All-Star game! The props will be similar to the ones we had last Wednesday and Friday. I'm sure you all will enjoy!

Today's Preview
After a weekend jam-packed with 36 matchups, the Streak barely takes a rest. There are 10 competitions in action on Monday, with our highlight the ESPN Monday Night Football game between long-time rivals Bears and Packers. There's also soccer, NHL, NBA, and college basketball for your selection purposes.

This morning's soccer match has EPL powerhouse Chelsea visiting Everton. Chelsea has the edge in this one, even on the road, and even giving up the draw. We're putting it on the board anyway; it is, after all, the holiday season.

At 7 PM, Marquette visits North Carolina State. The early trend is favoring the Golden Eagles, but it's tough to beat an ACC team at home. This game can be seen on ESPNU.

If hockey is more your style, then also at 7 PM are two NHL games. Pittsburgh visits Buffalo, while Toronto travels to Atlanta. Streakers so far heavily prefer the road teams, while the offshore sportsbooks see the home teams as slight favorites. Who will be proven correct?


MNF: Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears
The Bears must win this game to have any chance of making the NFC playoffs. The Pack can only play spoilers, as their promising start to the season quickly degraded and they come to Chicago having lost six of their previous seven games. The weather forecast for Soldier Field is temperatures around 0, with a chance of precipitation. Matt Forte is expected to be back at full strength for the Bears, while Aaron Rodgers looks to answer the questions that have arisen during this disappointing season.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers were well under 40% for Sunday, despite being able to choose either team in any of the thirteen NFL games. What happened? Couldn't you have just gone against an 0-14 Detroit team? Wasn't New England hosting the Cardinals in freezing snow? How easy do you expect us to make this?
