Today's Preview
Starting at Wigan, and ending in Long Beach, it's a Saturday chock full of matchups. For something new, we've included Six Nations Rugby.

Ireland hosts France in our Rugby matchup, and the fans will be going crazy at Páirc an Chrócaigh. The home team is a slight favorite, but the French have dominated the recent matchups.

Meanwhile, British national Luke Donald will be on our side of the pond hoping to make up ground in the Buick Open. We've got him matched up against Camilo Villegas, the current tournament leader, for a third-round clash.

The middle of the day is loaded with college basketball. Most of them are straight ups, but at 6:00 p.m. we've got a "greater margin of victory" prop between UConn (playing Michigan) and Davidson (playing College of Charleston). The two games can be seen on ESPN and ESPN2.

An hour later, the Butler Bulldogs visit Wright State. Early Streakers are backing Butler by about 300-1. The sportsbooks see it closer, as the Raiders are only a couple points underdog.


NCAA Basketball: No. 15 Memphis Tigers @ No. 18 Gonzaga Bulldogs
The Tigers take their 13-game winning streat to Spokane where they'll face a tough test against the surging Zags. Tyreke Evans will need to have a great game if Memphis is to win.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers went up early behind the Fairfield Stags, but Carmelo Anthony and Travis Henry let them down late. When all was said and done, it was another ho-hum day under 50 percent. The Leaderboard showed little movement, as the current top Streaks seemed uninterested in Ivy League basketball or two light heavyweights who did a lot more hugging than punching.
