Today's Preview
A doubleshot of EPL, an afternoon bowl game, and Monday Night Football highlight the action.

We take advantage of an expanded Monday schedule for the English Premier League - twice! The Blackburn Rovers host Sunderland; later, Manchester City visits the Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Texas A&M Aggies take on the Georgia Bulldogs in the Independence Bowl needing a win to avoid a losing season. The sportsbooks have Georgia favored to win by a touchdown.


Monday Night Football: Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears
The Favres hit prime time television again, and while they've clinched the NFC North, a win tonight would help them get a higher seed for the playoffs. The Bears thought they'd scored a coup when they landed Jay Cutler in the off-season, but with their record at 5-9, this year has been a disappointment as they'll miss the post-season for the third straight year following their most recent Super Bowl appearance. The game may seem like a mismatch on paper, but home underdogs have a way of coming up big on Monday Nights.

Later on the West Coast, the Nuggets visit the Kings while the Coyotes swim with the Sharks.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers stayed hot with an almost 70 percent record on Sunday behind winning favorites Clemson and Dallas.
