Today's Preview
There is a playoff atmosphere lingering around Streak Headquarters lately with all the NBA and NHL matchups on the board. Today we have a possible four-win day.

We start in black and gold country where the Pirates host the red-hot Marlins at 12:35 p.m. ET. Even though the fish are facing Paul Maholm, they are favored at -120.

In the afternoon, our friends at ESPN360 supplied us with two great soccer matchups. First, Werder Bremen is favored with draw on the road in the German Cup semi's then the "under" has the slight advantage in the Coppa Italia semi's.

This evening we have a "more goals" matchup between both NHL underdogs. Keep in mind, both the Canadiens and Rangers have scored a total of five goals in their playoff series. But, we didn't forget the Blackhawks and Flames, as we have a "total goals" matchup for that one with the o/u at 5.5 goals.

For NBA matchups, we start with Andre Miller's assists and rebounds against the Magic's winning margin. Miller had a combined 14 in game one, while you all know the Magic took the loss. And last but not least, the two-headed monsters from the Hornets and Nuggets square off with Billups and 'Melo taking game one in an easy win at home.

Wednesday Night Baseball: Which Player will record a Higher Total?
Jose Reyes of the Mets is six for nine lifetime against Pineiro, while Joel has had just five strikeouts in his two starts this season. If you think Reyes will reach base a couple times, he is the best play here.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers took care of business once again with a 66.9 overall winning percentage. In the second most picked matchup in streak history, many streaks were saved when Arsenal earned the draw at Liverpool.
