Welcome to Streak For the Cash 2010!
With the new year comes a new round of SFTC. This time Streakers have one month to see how long a winning streak they can build in their quest for $100,000. There's also a prize for the most total wins in January. Good luck!

Many of us might still have cobwebs upstairs when the Outback Bowl kicks off in the morning. Northwestern goes against Auburn; the Tigers are sizable favorites, so on the Streak the matchup is Auburn's winning margin versus the number of times that the Wildcats score.

The Big Ten and the Southeastern are rematched a couple hours later as Penn State plays LSU in the Capital One Bowl. This game is listed straight-up.

In the NHL's Winter Classic, the Philadelphia Flyers travel to Boston to play the Bruins at Fenway Park - weather permitting.

West Virginia and Purdue both take undefeated records and gaudy rankings into an afternoon meeting in West Lafayette. The Boilermakers are favored, but Streak HQ sees this one going to the Mountaineers.

Rose Bowl: Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Oregon Ducks
This year's edition of "the granddaddy of them all" is a traditional matchup of Midwest defense against Pac-10 speed. The sportsbooks have installed the Ducks as mild favorites but the Pac-10 has not represented well in the bowl season.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers closed out 2009 with one of their worst performances of the year - under 30 percent as Air Force and Navy surprised the oddsmakers with easy victories.
