The pressure is on Greivis Vasquez tonight against the Tar Heels.


So What? If The StreakMaster is Nervous at 4:11 p.m. ET
Yes, a Streaker is at 19 wins in a row and I'll be honest with you, I am kind of nervous. Even though the next eight matchups will be tough, this is still too soon for someone to be this close. Looks like The StreakMaster needs to hunker down! Yeah, that's right, I said hunker down! By the way, The StreakMaster's pick of the day is North Carolina's winning margin. Let's hope this pick works out better then yesterday's, when I revealed my true identity on Streak Speak .

Today's Preview
The Dutch Eredivisie kicks our day off at 2:15 p.m. ET wth a "total goals" matchup between SC Heracles Alemlo and Ajax Amsterdam. Ajax is heavily favored but they have not scored many goals as of late, but the "over" is the smarter play here.

A replay of a fourth round FA Cup match between West Brom and Burnley is at 2:45 p.m. ET. Burnley is favored but if West Brom can win or keep the match tied until overtime, they will be considered the winner in our books.

In college basketball action we have a few different matchups. First, at 7 p.m. ET, Purdue (-2) is on the road at The Ohio State University in a "straight up" matchup. At the same time there is a "more 3-Pointers" matchup between Mississippi State and Kentucky. MSU hits 7.6 3-pointers per game while Kentucky hits on 5.8. Then at 9 p.m. we ask "Which player will score more points?" The options are Devan Downey of South Carolina or Nick Calathes of Florida. Downey averages about two points more per game. Lastly, we have a MWC "total points" matchup between San Diego State and UNLV, with the over/under at 131.5 points.

On frozen water, the Lightning (-105) are at the Islanders, the Maple Leafs hosts the Panthers (-112) and the Stars (-125) play host to the Flames.

In our only NBA matchup, the Nuggets (-3.5) host the Spurs, but so far Streakers are taking San Antonio's side.


College basketball (Maryland at No.4 UNC): Which 'Side" will record a "Higher Total?"
A unique kind of prop is our featured matchup of the night. North Carolina is favored by 21 points on the road at Maryland, so we put their winning margin against Greivis Vasquez's points plus assists. Will Vasquez have a big game or struggle like he did against Duke?

Yesterday's Results
Overall, Streakers dominated the board, finishing with a 68.6 winning percentage. Most of the "favorites" according to Streakers took care of business therefore the only streak breaker were the Flames who were topped by the Avalanche in a close one. In leaderboard news, dbonney is now at 19 wins in a row!
