Today's Preview
A light day of action, with many sports taking the day off. We have the Portuguese Liga making a rare appearance, the Hoyas facing another tough opponent, Spurs at the Heat, a cross-sport prop, and an NBA player matchup. It's unlikely Streakers will be able to fit more than two picks in for the day.

Last-place Belenenses visits Braga at 2:45 p.m. ET. They're playing to avoid relegation, but we see Braga as too likely to win to list the matchup straight-up. Instead, we've put a total-goals proposition out there for Streakers to choose from.


College hoops: Georgetown Hoyas at Notre Dame Fighting Irish
There's no rest for the weary in the Big East, is there? Georgetown comes off of games against UConn and Pittsburgh and what do they get? A visit to South Bend where the No. 10 Irish await. They'll need to rediscover what it means to rebound if they want to avoid back-to-back losses. For the Irish, feeding Luke Harangody the rock has been their strategy all season, and we don't expect anything different tonight.

In an 8 p.m. cross-sport matchup, we give you a reason to watch the Fiesta Bowl. Streakers have the option of choosing Chris Bosh's point total (currently averaging almost 24 points per game) or Ohio State's point total (sportsbooks currently predicting around 22 points). Early Streakers like the Buckeyes by a 2-1 margin.

Yesterday's Results
2009's feast-or-famine pattern continued, this time on the plus side of the ledger. Streakers won at a 70 percent clip aided by comfortable wins by the Baltimore Ravens and the Philadelphia Eagles. Unexpected wins by Cal and Michigan prevented total domination.
