Golf matchups moved to later times at 2:44 p.m.
Due to inclement weather conditions, the tee times for the Mercedes Championship have been delayed to later in the afternoon. The Streak has followed suit.

Today's Preview
We've got top team showdowns in multiple sports. Chelsea against Man U, Giants and Eagles, Tar Heels and Demon Deacons. Aren't sports the best?

At 11 AM, the Chelsea Blues visit Old Trafford to take on Manchester United. This should be a great match, with both teams nearing full health. The Red Devils are on an 8-match home winning streak in EPL play, so we're giving Chelsea the draw.

NFL playoffs - Philadelphia Eagles @ New York Giants
A classic NFC East battle. We expect the Giants will rely heavily on their running game, and we expect the Eagles to stack the line and dare Manning to pass. On the other side of the ball, McNabb needs to avoid turning the ball over if the Iggles want to move on.

At 1:30 PM we have a couple different golf propositions. One is a simple player vs. player matchup - Anthony Kim vs. K.J. Choi. They'll be playing in the same threesome. Your other possible choice is a prediction of the winner's final round score.

At 8 PM, North Carolina travels to Winston-Salem where the undefeated Wake Forest Demon Deacons await. The Deacons boast a huge front line (four players 6' 11" or taller) - will they be able to contain Tyler Hansbrough? Early Streakers don't think so, as they've selected the Tar Heels at a 98% clip.

Yesterday's Results
After three straight winning days, Streakers dipped back under 50%. Most of the losing was due to two of the matchups - Andy Roddick's straight-set loss to Andy Murray, and the Stanford Cardinal's 1-point defeat at the hands of the Wazzou Cougars.
