Play Super Pick'em today!

Are You Feeling Super? at 4:37 p.m. ET
ESPN's Super Pick'em is now available to play, and if you feel lucky, challenge The StreakMaster in his group. It's free to play and you have a slim chance of taking down a professional. What more could you want?

Today's Preview
Soccer takes over our board in the early afternoon. In Coppa Italia action, we have a "first goal" prop between Sampdoria and Udinese with the spread at the 25th minute. These props are usually toss-ups, so if you have a streak over 10, The StreakMaster advises to stay away but, if you live dangerously, take a pick!

In the second Italia match, two prestigious teams battle it out in a "total goals" matchup. Inter Milan is the heavy favorite against AS Roma, so take your shot at guessing the over or under. Also at 2:45 p.m. ET, the second leg of the Carling Cup Semi-Finals finishes up with Tottenham at Burney. Tottenham has the aggregate locked up, but will they let up and rest their starters, or go for the win?

We also have a variety of college basketball matchup in the evening. Leading scorers Earl Clark and Mike Rosario go head-to-head in a "more points" prop with Clark averaging 13.9 points-per-game and Rosario averaging a stellar 17.1. Also, Villanova takes on UConn in a "more three pointers" matchup with 'Nova averaging 6.1 per game and UConn averaging only 4.9.

In the late time-slot, Missouri is on the road at Oklahoma State (-2) and two of the country's top scorers battle it out on our ESPN networks. Blake Griffin takes on Nebraska, while Jodie Meeks takes on Auburn. Both guys could score 30-plus, so enjoy watching these two future NBA players take over.

In the association, we have a few close spreads. The Bucks (-2) host the Mavericks, and the Rockets (-2) are favored at home against the Jazz. In late night action, the Cavs and Blazers are a pick'em and the Kings (-3) host the Wizards.

Men's College Basketball: (No. 9 Clemson at No. 6 North Carolina): How many TOTAL POINTS will be SCORED?
The StreakMaster cannot believe this spread is -15 in favor of the Tar Heels. It seems a little high, but Carolina should win the game. Since this is a big ACC conference game with two top-ten teams, it has to be on our board. The over/under is at 163.5 points, and that is a lot of points for a college basketball game. The StreakMaster likes the under here with Carolina rolling 78-67.

Yesterday's Results
Another .500 day for Streakers. Looks like The StreakMaster made a mistake going on a hunch, putting the Ohio State-Illinois game on the board with a seven-point spread, as Illinois made him look bad with their easy victory over the Buckeyes. Although, he did get his revenge with the afternoon soccer match going over four goals, which was the top streak breaker of the day.
