Today's Preview
Eurosoccer, lots more baseball (including a couple of props), and Monday Night Football fill today's slate.

Just because the EPL is back in session doesn't mean we've forsaken the Allvenskan. Two of the Streak's favorites duke it out as Hammarby (getting the draw) visits Gefle IF.

Cliff Lee has been near-perfect since joining the Phillies, and has yet to give up more than one earned run in any of his four National League starts. We're holding him to that standard in a day game at the Mets - is this the game where he falters?

Aston Villa visits Liverpool in a match broadcast on ESPN2. Liverpool is a huge favorite, so we've made this one a total-goals proposition.

The New York Football Jets play at Baltimore on Monday Night Football. The Jets still need to figure out who their starting QB is going to be; a couple quarters against the Ravens first-string defense will be a tough test for Mark Sanchez.


Monday Night Baseball - Detroit Tigers at Los Angeles Angels
Cy Young hopeful Justin Verlander faces a tough test tonight on the road in Anaheim, where one of baseball's hottest-hitting lineups awaits. So far Streakers see this one going to the Angels by a 3-1 margin, but the Streakmaster is predicting Justin shuts them down and the Tigers win easily.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers were just over 40 percent as major league baseball in particular proved difficult to predict.
