Saturday Blogging

We were in a mood here at Streak HQ, so we decided to just fill up the board with any and all games that looked interesting. That's mostly college football, but there's some playoff-relevant baseball mixed in, and some more NHL season-openers.

There's one early EPL match on the board - Tottenham Hotspur visits the Bolton Wanderers. Early Streakers favor the Spurs, but veterans of the game know that the home team with the draw is always hard to overcome.

The morning college football is all Big Ten - Minnesota hosts Wisconsin, and Michigan State hosts Michigan. If you prefer your hitting on the ice, the Panthers and the Black Hawks have a rematch in Helsinki.

There's still one division race yet to be decided in major league baseball. The Twins trail the Tigers by just one game with two days remaining, but they've got a tough row to hoe as they face Zach Greinke. Detroit is at home against the White Sox - both games are listed straight up on the Streak.

NCAA Football: USC Trojans @ California Golden Bears
Is the Streak listing a gimme? No team in college football looked more overrated than the Bears last week, who gave up the last 42 points of the game at Oregon to lose by a final of 42-3. On the other side, the unimpressive Trojans are also dealing with the loss of Stefon Johnson. This game comes down to whether Jahvid Best can get loose - if he doesn't, Kevin Riley will be under pressure all afternoon long, and Cal will take another loss.

Let's just say that so far the NHL has not been kind to Streakers.
