Streak of 29 on the line at 10:36 PM ET
Ladies and Gentlemen, our current leader, andyaknow has make a pick. He chose the San Diego Padres over the Washington Nationals. Let's see if he can reach 30!

Today's Preview
It's the final day of the month, so you monthly contenders better stay tuned all day. We start with the U.S. Open, shift to soccer then football and baseball to round up the night.

Our first matchup should be 50-50 with no clear cut favorite but it looks like Streakers are jumping on the German, Simon Greul for one reason or another.

In soccer, the under is favored in the English League while Barcelona should take care of Sporting Gijon rather easily.


NFL Preseason: Minnesota Vikings @ Houston Texans
All eyes will be on Brett Favre once again, but The StreakMaster will be focusing on Steve Slaton and Matt Schaub as fantasy football draft commence shortly. The Texans are favored by 3 at home.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers dominated the board, finishing with a 62.6 overall winning percentage. No major streak breaker while the Bears and Everton helped a few people out.

A top Eurosoccer matchup highlights Saturday's slate.


English Premier League - Arsenal at Manchester United
Although the EPL season has barely begun, this game could go a long way in defining who will be at the top of the standings when all is said and done. The Gunners have been unstoppable so far, scoring ten goals their first two times out in league play. Man U was stunned by Burnley in their second game, but came back to thrash Wigan five to nil. Now the Red Devils are back at Old Trafford - can they defend against Arsenal's attack?

New York's two NFL teams will have Big Apple bragging rights on the line in their Saturday night preseason clash [in New Jersey]. New starting quarterback Mark Sanchez will be in the spotlight for the Jets.

The Rockies and Giants continue a pivotal wild-card series in San Francisco. Scheduled to take the mound are Jason Marquis and Barry Zito.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers had a tough morning, but made a comeback late and finished just short of 50 percent for the day.

A breather after yesterday's packed schedule. Morning golf and soccer, baseball later, plus CFL, WNBA, and preseason NFL.

Unlike Jane, the Streak is not done with Sergio. We've matched him up against Padraig Harrington (playing in the following group) for the front nine holes. Despite his late season success, Garcia gets the tie as well.

One of the longest names in Eurosoccer hits our board. Borussia Monchengladbach hosts Mainz in a Bundesliga tussle - Mainz gets the draw.

The Tampa Bay Rays are starting to run out of time if they want to make this season's playoffs. A good place for them to start their stretch run would be Detroit, where they open a 4-game series on Friday night. Matt Garza is scheduled to start against Rick Porcello.


Major League Baseball (fewer earned runs) - Felix Hernandez vs. Tim Lincecum
This is a rematch of sorts. Last time around, the goal was more strikeouts, and Tim responded by whiffing 15 Pirates while The King was having one of his worst starts all year. Now Felix gets another chance, and the winner is the pitcher who allows fewer earned runs. Lincecum has been a bit off in his last few starts; Streak HQ is going with the Mariner.

Yesterday's Results
A slip-up for the Streakers, who were betrayed by some heavily favored sides and ended up below 40 percent.

You've asked for it and you now you have it...kind of. It's a mini-stunt for all you Streakers. Enjoy and good luck.

We start in Jersey City with some golf or you can go the soccer route with a ton of Europa League games. Either way, make some picks and build that streak in the a.m.

In the evening we head to the diamond. Can J.A. Happ pitch another gem? The StreakMaster thinks so. After that matchup, you might be able to get the Padres/Braves matchup in to get a quick streak of two. Don't forget about the three late-night matchups as well.


NFL Pre-Season: Miami Dolphins @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Dolphins are getting their wins before the real deal and they should before they face a killer schedule this season. Expect them to be 3-0 while Tampa tries to figure out their QB situation.

A ton of baseball with some soccer and tennis rounding out the board.

Once again, we get started in Southern CT with the Pilot Pen.

In the afternoon we have three quality matchups. You can go the prop route with the Indians/Royals matchup or head to the pitch for Wigan at Blackpool. With Blackpool at home, they have the edge by a slim margin. If you really want to push your luck, take the 3:35 game between the Tigers and Angels.

Also, on the pitch under the lights Chivas USA have the advantage on the road against Real Salt Lake.

Ever wonder how many home runs are hit per game in Yankee Stadium? Try 3.18! With 2 or more be hit before the sixth? You make the call.

Tennis, soccer and baseball. Sounds like your typical Tuesday here at Streak HQ.

We get started right down I-91 in New Haven for the Pilot Pen. Our matchup features Taylor Dent against Igor Kunitsyn. Dent has the odds at -140 but they have never faced each other.

In Carling Cup action look for the home team to get at least a draw against Blackburn.

At night, if you at looking to grab two wins, the Phillies and Matt Cain should get the job done.


WNBA (Chicago @ Los Angeles): Which player will score more points?
Lisa Leslie is the bigger name and started off hot but Candice Dupree has caught fire as of late so it should be a tough choice. So far users are split down the middle as they should be.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers dipped below .500, netting a 46.1 winning percentage. Users did not think Cliff Lee would pitch a gem but he proved you all wrong. Thankfully, the Ravens helped extend some streaks.

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.

The Streak quiets down on a Sunday dominated by major league baseball.

Tim Lincecum hopes to rebound from his worst start of the season as the Giants play the third of a four-game series at Colorado. The Rockies took the wild card lead in winning last night's slugfest.


Sunday Night Baseball - New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox
Does this game really need a build-up? The traditional AL East powers go at it once again, with Boston needing the win more than the Bombers. Scheduled to start are aces Sabathia and Beckett.

Sunday ends in Houston where the Dynamo host the Seattle Sounders. Seattle has had a tough time winning away from home, so they're getting the draw in this one.

Yesterday's Results
After a couple consecutive losing days, Streakers bounced back above 60 percent behind the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Los Angeles Angels.

A full slate for Saturday, heavy on the baseball for one of the last times this year as real football lies just ahead on the calendar.

Today's LLWS spotlights the international teams in the morning. Recent champion Warner Robins plays in the afternoon.


ATP Tennis (Cincinnati) - Roger Federer vs. Andy Murray
There are only a couple players who can say they've had the best of The Raj over the last couple years, but Andy Murray is one of them. Fed's been back on his game, however - could today's semifinal match be a preview for the US Open final?

Matt Kenseth and Mark Martin both want to maintain their top-12 positions in the NASCAR Sprint Cup points race. Will they race conservatively or aggressively in Saturday's Sharpie 500? Both ran well in qualifying, and will start in the first three rows.

Little League baseball takes over our board today with some other interesting matchups strategically placed throughout the day.

If you're looking for odds on the LLWS games, you are not going to find any. The StreakMaster likes Staten Island, Chinese Taipei's over and Warner Robins.

For MLB games, the Yankees are favored against the Sox and the Twins, Rockies and Cardinals are also picked to win.


CFL Saskatchewan @ Montreal: How many total points will be scored?
In their week 3 meeting, Montreal beat Saskatchewan 43-13 on the road. If that is not a sign, I'm not sure what is. Look for Montreal to win east and win big, pushing the over.

A jam-packed board this Thursday with a variety of sports. We start in North Carolina for golf, then head overseas for the afternoon.

Both golf matchups today are for 9 holes, so they can go either way. But when it comes to soccer, both "win" teams are favored to take home the prize.

At 2:35 p.m. all eyes turn to Usain Bolt as he runs the finals of the 200 meters. His personal best is 19.30 but he has not been under 20.00 during qualifying.

The Vick-less Eagles are favored in Indy at -3 and for MLB props, Josh Johnson and the "over" for Albert Pujols have the odds.


MLS (New England @ Seattle): What will be the match result?
The Revs head to Seattle to take on the Sounders tonight at 10:00. The Sounders have 32 points while New England only has 24, so the home team is the team to pick here.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers finished with a 52.7 overall winning percentage. The top breaker of the day was Gerd Kanter, who failed to capture the gold in the IAAF Championships.

We have a nice little Wednesday ahead of us. Tennis, track and field, soccer, baseball and the WNBA.

For soccer matches, SV Salzburg has the edge at home and in our "largest margin of victory" Liverpool has the slight edge with a 81% to 79% odds over Manchester United.

In the MLS, the L.A. Galaxy has the edge with the draw even though Landon Donovan probably won't play.

Later on in the evening we have a Rich Harden innings pitched prop. In his last outing against the Padres he pitched 6 innings.


Wednesday Night Baseball: Which combo will record more total bases?
Big names versus big time production. Youkilis and Ortiz look to do some damage off Halladay while Hill and Lind have been playing well all year. Can the Sox duo step up and hit well off Halladay?

A slate similar to Monday hits again. Soccer to start up the afternoon, then a big mix in the evening.

In baseball props, Josh Beckett's strikeouts goes against the Blue Jays hits. Beckett usually has the same amount of each in road starts, so with the tie, the Jays are perhaps the better play. Then at 10:05, we ask how many runs will be scored before the 5th. The under was the favorite yesterday, will the case be the same today?

Don't forget our WNBA matchups with the Mercury at the Sky and Alana Beard (18.1 ppg) going up against the Candace Parker (10.4 ppg) in a first-half points matchup.


Tuesday Night Baseball: Mariners at Tigers
According to Accuscore this game is a 52-48% matchup favoring the Mariners. Keep in mind Felix Hernandez has not lost on the road since May 9th.

Streak favorites BK Hacken and Malmo FF meet up. BKH is on the road, so the Streak gives them the draw.

The Braves host the Diamondbacks in the only early MLB game. Atlanta is a heavy favorite, so on the Streak the question is whether young starter Tommy Hanson will end up with the victory.

New Yorkers won't know who to make fun of in the LLWS Mid-Atlantic Regional final: New Jersey takes on Staten Island for the coveted trip to Williamsport.


Monday Night Football - Carolina Panthers at New York Football Giants
Don't expect the starters to get too much play, but it's always fun to watch Monday Night Football. Eli Manning will probably get a series or two to justify his huge contract, while Steve Smith is only probable after his recent injury.

Liverpool visits Tottenham in the EPL opener for both teams. Unusually, it's the home team that gets the draw for this matchup.

The Giants finish up their series with the Mets. There could be some bad blood in this one after yesterday's head-hunting shenanigans.

New world #2 Andy Murray takes on Juan Martin Del Potro in the finals of the men's Rogers Cup (formerly known as the Canadian Open). The Scot is a big favorite, so on the Streak he'll have to win in straight sets to git 'er done.

Tony Stewart and Jimmie Johnson continue their season-long Sprint Cup battle - this time in the Carfax 400 at Michigan.


Little League World Series - Chula Vista, California vs. Granite Bay, California
It's North against South as these two California teams hope to punch their ticket for the penultimate American spot in the Little League World Series. Both teams went undefeated in pool play, but it's SoCal that's had the more impressive scoring margins.

ATP Rogers Cup - Andy Roddick vs. Novak Djokovic
Defining the term "true to form", the eight highest-ranked players in the world have all made the quarterfinals of the Rogers Cup.

We get started in Minnesota with Tiger Woods going up against -- Tiger Woods. Can he shoot a 34 on the back nine? The StreakMaster is thinking over here.

In MLB action we have Michael Young going against Grady Sizemore. Young has had a better season but Sizemore is the favorite today.

Other MLB props include the Marlins versus the Reds for a larger victory margin and CC Sabathia's strikeouts against his hits allowed. This season, Sabathia has given up more hits than his strikeouts. Just something to think about.

Today we have 10 matchups in what seems to be 4 windows. We start with baseball then move to the pitch. After that, who knows how your day pans out.

For day league baseball, the Yankees are heavily favored against the Blue Jays at home. Can they win by 3 or more? You make the call. If you would rather play a game straight up, we have the A's at the Orioles.

For soccer action, we have an international friendly with Switzerland getting the edge at home and then Mexico is in a must-win situation against the U.S.

In the evening we have some big-league softball then the White Sox-Mariners. Don't forget about our Mark Buehrle prop either. He usually throws more pitches against weak teams but the Mariners aren't terrible. It will be interesting, that's for sure.


Wednesday Night Baseball: Phillies at Cubs
Pedro makes his triumphant return tonight against the Cubs. Can he regain his old form, even just a little bit? Also, if you're confident in your view about Pedro, take a chance in our prop that revolves about Martinez.

WNBA: Which Player will record a higher total?
