Today's Preview
We start the day in San Diego for the Buick Invitational. In our lone matchup, Woody Austin takes on JB Holmes in a full 18 hole matchup, with both golfers similarly favored to win the group.

For afternoon soccer we head to Holland for a "total goals" prop between ADO Den Haag and PSV Eindhoven. Expect a few more goals then usual in this mismatch.

A couple NCAA basketball props start the evening off with Alonzo Gee of Alabama going up against A.J. Ogilvy in a "higher total" matchup. Both players average around 21 points plus rebounds per game. There is also a "total points" matchup between Temple and Xavier over on ESPN with the over/under at 135.5 points.

In NHL action, the Blues (-117) host the Oilers, the Stars (-120) are in Colorado and the Flames (-122) host the Blackhawks.

Other notable matchups include: Wisconsin (-3) hosting Illinois, Austin Peay (-3) playing host to Tennessee Martin, Washington at California (pick'em), and Fresno State at Hawaii (pick'em).


NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Boston Celtics
The Celtics look to even the season series with the Lakers when they come to Boston in a rematch of last year's NBA Finals. The Lake-Show took care of business at home on Christmas Day but don't expect the C's to let that happen twice. The defending champions are five-point favorites in this one, and The StreakMaster expects a Celtics victory in this statement game.

Yesterday's Results
As predicted, The StreakMaster was right about the tough day Streakers were going to have. Overall, entries finished with a 29.7 winning percentage, ouch. Wake Forest, Liverpool and the Phoenix Suns were your days top streak breakers. Congratulations to anyone who won three matchups yesterday, you deserve a shout out!
