Today's Preview
More soccer, more NHL and NBA playoffs, more baseball. The Streak recommends checking the board throughout the day as weather may cancel some of the baseball games - should that occur, it's likely that new matchups will be added.

We open with a top-notch battle in the English Premier League - Arsenal at Liverpool. While oddsmakers have Liverpool as a slight favorite for the straight win, Streakers are currently leaning the other way. Arsenal gets the draw on the Streak.

The Pittsburgh Penguins hope to seize control of their first round playoff series against the Philadelphia Flyers. The Pens are up 2-1 in the best-of-seven format, but Game Four is in Philly.

Also in the City of Brotherly Love, the World Champion Phillies are off to a slow start in 2009. They have the opportunity to climb back to .500 when they host the Brewers Tuesday night - assuming the weather cooperates.


MLB - New York Mets at St. Louis Cardinals
The Mets are another team that have yet to meet some lofty expectations. They travel to St. Louis where they'll face red-hot Ryan Ludwick and Albert Pujols, who are undoubtably licking their chops in anticipation of facing Oliver Perez. The Mets have their own run producer in David Wright, who is 5 for 7 in his career against St. Louis starter Todd Wellemeyer.

We didn't forget the NBA! We've got two different player propositions scheduled for Tuesday, and the second one closes out the Streak's evening. Carlos Boozer gets both points and rebounds in a contest against Kobe Bryant, who will score onlywhen he scores.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers had one of their worst days in the history of the Streak as huge favorites repeatedly went down in defeat. When the final matchup had been graded, it was the Streakers that flunked out at 24 percent.
