Today's Preview
Back to normalcy on this last day of November. We get started late but we end late as well.

In our only afternoon prop, the public loves the draw but Blackpool is the better team and should get most of the play.

Virginia is favored by 5.5 over Penn State and are -140 favorites to score ten first. After that, the smart play would be Drew Brees at home who is a -120 favorite to throw the first touchdown pass. Although, our late night basketball prop could go either way. It's a coin-flip that's for sure.


MNF - New England Patriots @ New Orleans Saints
The undefeated Saints go against their toughest foe of the season, the New England Patriots. Drew Brees and company are 2.5 favorites at home and look to keep the good times rolling.

Yesterday's Results
A 69.9 winning percentage for the Sunday. Streaks are rising, especially with the Ravens taking down the Steelers. The only major breaker was the Miami Dolphins, who lost to the Buffalo Bills.

Today's Preview
Extra soccer and day basketball accompany the usual Sunday avalanche of NFL.

Arsenal and Chelsea clash in the EPL, plus a double dose of Spanish Primero. Real Madrid and Barca should be a barnburner - we're giving Madrid the draw.

Indianapolis tries to stay undefeated at Houston, who have lost two straight heartbreakers by a 20-17 score.

The Celtics open a four-game road trip at Miami. The Heat have played just .500 ball after opening the season 4-1.


NFL - Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens
The defending champs may not even make the playoffs, and with Big Ben out they'll have to come up with an outstanding defensive effort on the road if they want to topple Joe Flacco and the Ravens. Dennis Dixon is expected to get the start for Pittsburgh.

Sunday ends north of the border in Vancouver, where the Canucks host the red-hot Sharks in what could be the best hockey match of the weekend.

Yesterday's Results
Saturday started off very poorly for Streakers, but a late comeback by the LSU Tigers brought them back to almost even at 47 percent.

Today's Preview
Time is running out for would-be members of the Streak Seven. Saturday offers an easy 5-win day for those who navigate the Streak pitfalls successfully.

The traditional morning English Premier League is the Bolton-Fulham clash. Surprisingly, Streakers are leaning heavily towards the home team, despite giving up the draw.

There are certain rivalries that always seem to throw point spreads out the window, and Clemson-South Carolina is one of them. However, Clemson has won 10 of the last 12 matchups - can the Ole Ball Coach stem the tide?

That game should finish in plenty of time to give Streakers a shot at the 3:30 action - Mizzou visits Kansas, while Arizona travels to Tempe. Both games will be covered on ABC.


NCAA Football - Arkansas Razorbacks at LSU Tigers
LSU hopes to rebound from the debacle against Ole Miss. Les Miles has already instructed his team not to attempt to spike the ball with only one second left in the game. Meanwhile, Ryan Mallet aims for his third straight SEC Offensive Player of the Week award. Streak HQ thinks the game is a tossup, but predicts a lot of points in this one.

Our night, like so much else, ends in Los Angeles. The Blackhawks bring their gaudy record to the STAPLES center hoping to start a new winning streak with a victory over the Kings.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers enjoyed both leftovers and Streaking, cruising to a 60 percent record.

The Day After
The Streakmaster is full, and so is our Friday menu. Plenty of NBA and NHL, plus the college sports for the kiddies. Enjoy!

Lots of early hockey today, and the best of the bunch may be the Devils and the Bruins. Faceoff is at noon in Boston.

Don't despair, soccer fans. We haven't forgotten you, and to prove it there's a Bundesliga snack in between all the other sports. Bochum hosts Cologne; the visitor gets the draw.

Two perennial powers are at Madison Square Garden for the NIT Season Tip-Off championship. It's Connecticut against Duke in a game that will no doubt be looked at again when seeding time comes around.


NCAA Football - Pittsburgh Panthers at West Virginia Mountaineers
There's mean, there's nasty - and then there's the Backyard Brawl. The Mountaineers are still looking for revenge after Pitt knocked them out of the 2007 national championship race, and while the sportsbooks currently have the Panthers favored, Streak HQ is going with West Virginia by double-digits. The test will be which defense can stop the opponent's star running back.

The scoreboard will be on fire in Boise when the Broncos play the Nevada Wolfpack. We've set our total at 70 points - heck, Nevada scored that on their own against Idaho!

Yesterday's Results
On a relatively quiet day, Streakers were just above break-even at 52 percent.

Happy Thanksgiving
Our holiday slate is stuffed with football, basketball, and hockey.

Is there any more American tradition than the Detroit Lions losing on Thanksgiving? With Matt Stafford probably out, expect Daunte Culpepper to start at quarterback for Detroit. With the Packers needing a win to stay ahead in the wild card race, Streak HQ is predicting a blowout win for Green Bay.

More than one turkey will be roasted this Thanksgiving. The Oakland Raiders travel to Dallas in the second NFL game - will the 'Boys will double up on the Raiders?

In college hoops tournament action, the Crimson Tide try to pin a first loss on the Baylor Bears.


NCAA basketball - Minnesota Golden Gophers vs Butler Bulldogs
The 76 Classic opens up in Anaheim with these two undefeated and ranked teams facing off. The Bulldogs rely on stud sophomore Gordon Hayward, while the Gophers should get a boost with the return of leading scorer Lawrence Westbrook.

We end the night north of the border, where the Canucks host the Los Angeles Kings.

'Twas the night before Thanksgiving...so how about a five-window day?

About even odds for the over/under in the Coppa Italia in the morning with Wolfsburg as the favorites with the draw in the early afternoon.

Nadal takes on Davydenko which should be a classic today as well. Shockingly, the Russian is a -140 favorite.

In college basketball, Jerome Dyson of UConn and a Duke single digit win, should get most of the picks tonight, while the Hornets need to stop the Bucks in the Association.


NBA (Heat @ Magic): Which player will record a higher total?
D.Wade is a scoring machine and will not be stopped! He is averaging 28 points per game but when you put him against the double-double machine in Dwight Howard, you're in for a great matchup. Howard is the pick here, just because he has two stats to work with.

Yesterday's Results
A nice comeback by Streakers, netting a 68.3 winning percentage. Oral Roberts did a lot of damage followed by Andrew Bynum and the Maryland Terrapins.

A variety of matchups on the board today starting with the usual soccer. Can Streak favorite, Dynamo Kiev salvage a draw against FK Rubin Kazan?

In the afternoon slot, you all have three choices: Oral Roberts (-1), Barcelona and Arsenal are favored in their respective matchups.

Before you go to bed, try to squeeze in two matchups. Florida(-4) is your best choice at 7:00 p.m. ET then expect Andrew Bynum to have a big game as well.


NCAAF (Ball State @ W.Michigan): What will be the longest TD of the game?
These ones are always tough but with Western Michigan as a heavy favorite the "over" should get a lot of play here. But, as always you never know when someone will break off for a long run.

Yesterday's Results
Finally, a sub-.500 record for the day. 46.1 percent was the overall stat with Gonzaga as the big upset of the day.

Today's Preview
Plenty to choose from on a normally boring monday thanks to some college hoops.

Soccer starts us off with the "over" in the timing of the first goal and also the over in the English League match. Both odds are very tight therefore they can go either way.

In college hoops, Gonazaga is favored over Colorado by 10.5, the Bearcats of Cincinnati are favored by 3 and don't let the three-pointers match fool you. It is still early in the season but both teams shoot around the same from beyond the arc.


MNF: Tennessee Titans @ Houston Texans
If Chris Johnson can put together a great game, the Titans will be tough to beat on the road but the Texans' offense is pretty solid too. Expect a ton of points tonight either way.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers dominated The StreakMaster, finishing with a 70.1 overall win percentage. Users better start making some picks as the Streak 7 are very close to booking tickets!

More NFL football for you today thrown in with some NHL, NBA and NASCAR action.

Some notes for the early NFL games: The Lions are 3.5 favorites, the Colts are favored by 1 at Baltimore. The larger margin of victory props are dead even as well. Eli Manning, Ryan Grant and Sidney Rice are all projected to win their matchups as well.

In the afternoon, the Cardinals are projected to win by 10 but can Steven Jackson get his team some points in the second half? Also, the Patriots are 11 point favorites, while the Bengals are only favored by 9.


MLS Cup: Real Salt Lake vs. LA Galaxy
The MLS Cup is on the line tonight with the Galaxy as heavy favorites. Can the Cinderella squad, Real Salt Lake cap off a great season or will Landon Donovan and David Beckham be too much?

Yesterday's Results
Streakers had another solid day, finishing with a 59.2 overall win percentage. LSU took down a few streaks but Penn State and Forrest Griffin helped out plenty.

College hoops, baby! Plus Eurosoccer returns, along with the rest of the usual suspects.

The Wolfpack of NC State travels to Florida where they'll take on the Akron Zips. In a sign of how far this program has fallen, the sportsbooks rate this game as dead even.

The Zips are also playing football today - they'll travel to Bowling Green to take on the heavily-favored Falcons. We've got a proposition on this one - Akron's second half points against BG's winning margin.


NCAAB: Coaches vs Cancer Classic - Syracuse versus North Carolina
We go right back to the Big Apple for Friday's featured game, where yesterday's two winners face off in the championship game of the Coaches vs Cancer tournament. Syracuse romped over short-handed Cal - UNC appeared to be headed for an easy win as well, but Ohio State made it close in the final couple minutes before ultimately succumbing. This could well be an early matchup of Final Four teams, and Streak HQ is unwilling to predict a winner in what should be a fantastic early-season game.

Two of the decade's top scoring guards have a points contest in Boston when Vince Carter matches up against Ray Allen.

For the second straight night, we finish up in the Staples Center with an NBA player proposition. This time, we've given Chris Kaman of the Clippers a needed boost - he'll match his points and rebounds up against Carmelo Anthony's points.

Yesterday's Results
A second straight down day for Streakers, who fell even further to 35 percent.

Early season college hoops tourneys hold court (haha) in both Puerto Rico and New York. Later on the slate we have hockey, NFL, and an NBA scoring battle; soccer has a very rare day off.

Freshman stud Derrick Favors leads Georgia Tech against the Dayton Flyers in San Juan. This is a battle of youth versus experience - Streak HQ is calling this one for Dayton.


NCAAB: Coaches vs Cancer Classic
Four ranked teams play in MSG this evening. The Syracuse Orange are officially the road team against the California Golden Bears, but we suspect they'll have the crowd support nonetheless. After that game is completed, North Carolina takes on Ohio State. Both games will be televised on ESPN2.

It's now time for both the Miami Dolphins and the Carolina Panthers. Both teams are 4-5 and are nearing playoff elimination. They face off in Charlotte - the Dolphins will be without star running back Ronnie Brown.

We end the night in Los Angeles where the Lakers will host the Bulls. On the Streak, it's a scoring contest between John Salmons and Ron Artest - early Streakers are siding with Salmons, but the Streak wonders if they are considering the defensive assignments.

In college football, the Buffalo Bulls are favored by two while Dan LeFevour should tear up the Ball State defense.


NCAAB: Nebraska @ Saint Louis
Two undefeated teams square off in Missouri, when the Cornhuskers take on the Billikens. Nebraska is favored by one but in this stage of the season, anything is possible and The StreakMaster won't be shocked who wins.

A slow morning/afternoon but we make up for it in the evening hours.

We begin in Denmark for a first division matchup between Fredericia and AB Copenhagen. The road team has the odds here, and Streakers agree so far.

As for the night, you have two windows to choose from. The Kings are heavy favorites on the ice and the Mavericks are favorites on the court.

As for late-night, Pacific (-2) is the smart pick but Streakers are taking the road team, San Diego in overwhelming fashion.


MNF (Ravens @ Browns): Which side will record a higher total?
A mismatch on paper here. The Ravens are 10 point favorites and with the over/under at 38, oddsmakers are predicting a 24-14 outcome. The Browns are the play here, believe it or not.

As usual, every NFL game is on the board in one manner or another. The Sprint Cup approaches its finish, and there's plenty of hoops and hockey as well.

The English Premier League is taking the weekend off, so Spain's Segunda League makes an appearance for the first time in a month. Numancia visits Hercules - we figure taking on a demigod deserves the draw.

The PGA Disney finishes up in Florida. With a tight pack at the top of the leaderboard, the Streak's matchup is "Justins versus the field". Both Leonard and Rose are part of the 4-way tie for the lead.

The NFL's afternoon games include a couple tempting tilts - Dallas goes to Green Bay, and Philly travels to San Diego. Streak HQ likes the Pack in a minor upset.


NFL - New England Patriots at Indianapolis Colts
The decade's best rivalry is renewed on Sunday night at Lucas Oil Stadium. Peyton Manning seems to just get better and better with age, while Tom Brady is finally looking like he's fully recovered from major knee surgery. If the weather is cooperative, we could see a lot of points in Indianapolis.

Saturday's Recap
The Streakers continued their recent tear, as they repeatedly found the right side in college football, soccer, golf, hockey, basketball, NASCAR, and even some MMA.

We matched up two golfers fighting for 2010 exemption in Joe Ogilvie and Will MacKenzie. Will breezed to the 9-hole win, but Joe took dead aim on the back nine and could get that top-5 finish he needs.

The Spartans and the Boilermakers kept the scoreboard operator busy. The Spartans wound up on top, 40-37.

Al Groh decided that the easiest way to make a first down on fourth-and-one-foot was to try a QB draw from the shotgun formation. Al was wrong, and Boston College survived their trip to Virginia.


NCAA Football - Auburn Tigers at Georgia Bulldogs
The Bulldogs spotted the Tigers two touchdowns early, then came roaring back to take the lead. Auburn caught up twice, but at the end of the game penalties cost them in their final attempt to force overtime.

Streakers were a smoking 72 percent: a few users are ready to make a charge at the Streak Seven.

We're back to Florida for two more 9-hole golf matchups. Steve Lowery goes against J. B. Holmes in the early morning; Cameron Beckman faces Briny Baird in the later tee times.

Frenchman Gael Monfils will be the crowd favorite in Paris tennis, but the Streak sees his quarterfinal match against Marin Cilic as dead even.

The two most dysfunctional NBA teams of the last decade play each other in New York when the Warriors tip off against the Knicks. Streak HQ doesn't know who will win, but it's -140 that at least one player will ask for a trade during the game.


NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Denver Nuggets
Kobe brings the defending champs into Denver for a rematch of June's Western Conference finals. The Lakers are on the road, played last night, and are missing Pau Gasol - but they are still the Lakers. Carmelo Anthony has started this season on fire, averaging over 30 points per game.

For soccer matches, the under is the play for Columbia-Switzerland, Spain should make it to the final and a goal should be scored fairly early in the Copa del Rey match between Hercules and Almeria.

In college football, Bowling Green is favored by three at Miami Ohio and South Florida is favored to beat Rutgers by one.

On the ice, the Lightning (-145) and Coyotes (-140) are both favored.


NFL: Chicago Bears @ San Francisco 49ers
Two teams that are fading fast look to stop the bleeding. Can Jay Cutler lead his squad over the Niners on the road? The 49ers are three-point favorites in this one, but the Bears look like they better team so far this season.

Two different early games match NFL teams with winning records. The Cardinals visit the Bears, and the Bengals host the Ravens.

Kyle Busch is going for the triple sweep at Texas. After winning the trucks and the Nationwide, he faces his stiffest test today in the Sprint Cup. To win on the Streak, he only needs to finish ahead of Jeff Gordon.

It's back to Santa Anita and the second day of the Breeders' Cup. In the Classic, Streakers are confident that Zenyatta will win, place, or show.

Kyle Busch tries to make it two for two at Texas in today's Nationwide race. We think Kyle is an easy favorite, so on the Streak our proposition matches Cousin Carl Edwards against Brad Keselowski.


NCAA Football - Ohio State Buckeyes at Penn State Nittany Lions
The traditional Big Ten powers collide in State College (if tradition only goes back to 1980 or so). Terrelle Pryor returns home and needs this win to keep OSU in the hunt for the conference title. While the sportsbooks like Penn State, the Streak is calling this one for the Buckeyes.

The Breeders' Cup is underway in Santa Anita, and all six of Friday's races are on the board. If those don't catch your fancy, there's plenty of night games on tap in the NBA and NHL.

We wanted to find a soccer match that would end before the races, so we've posted a 2 Bundesliga affair between Paderborn 07 and Koblenz. The visitors get the draw.

ESPN2 will be at the track all day as we progress through our six propositions. Perhaps appropriately, early Streakers are putting all their faith in Blind Luck (running in the Juvenile Fillies).

The NASCAR trucks make their first Streak appearance in many months. Current leader Ron Hornaday will try to hold off early-season monster Kyle Busch.


NBA - San Antonio Spurs at Portland Trailblazers
No rest for San Antonio as they go back to back on the road - after losing at Utah on Thursday, they head west to Portland where the Blazers await. Will they have anything left in the tank?

Thursday opened with tennis, then on to a typical melange of soccer, basketball, hockey, and college football.

Streak favorite John Isner won the first set in Basel, but Frenchman Richard Gasquet played gamely down the stretch to pull out a three-set victory.

In the Streakers biggest Thursday triumph, Villarreal scored early and often on their way to a dominating 4-1 destruction of Lazio.


NCAA Football - Virginia Tech at East Carolina
The Hokies were huge favorites in this game, so we made it a proposition instead: would the Hokies win by more points than the Pirates scored in the second half? The answer was an easy yes as Tech's stifling defense shut out ECU in the second half and gave up only three points all game.

The night closed on an unhappy note for Streakers when the Jazz easily topped the Spurs.

ESPN's basketball doubleheader opens with Miami at Washington. Star guards Gilbert Arenas and Dwyane Wade are both averaging 26.5 PPG in the early season.

The Phillies travel back to Yankee Stadium hoping to force a deciding seventh game in the World Series. The Bombers are heavy favorites, so we've put up a prop instead - will starter Andy Pettite be credited with a win? Early Streakers think not by a 3-1 ratio.

The world's top golfers are in Shanghai China for the WGC-HSBC Champions event. In tonight's proposition, young Kiwi Danny Lee takes on American Matt Kuchar in a 9-hole challenge. We're giving the tie to the kid.


NBA: Dallas Mavericks at New Orleans Hornets
New Orleans has stumbled out of the starting gate with a 1-3 record to open the season. They'll try to right the ship against the visiting Mavericks, who are on an impressive three-game winning streak since losing their opener to the Wizards.

A four-win day on this rather slow Monday. Soccer, hockey, basketball, baseball and football all make the board today.

In Danish soccer action, Odense has the -150 odds at home and for our second soccer matchup, the under is the best bet for second half goals.

The World Series may end tonight but the Phillies have their ace on the hill to try to prolong the series. Can Cliff Lee pitch another gem for the Phils or will A.J. Burnett lead his Yanks to their first title since 2000?

Lastly, Ryan Gomes is averaging 12 points per game while Al Thornton is just below 9 points per game. Keep in mind this is a first half prop.


MNF: Falcons 2nd Half Points vs. Saints Winning Margin
The Saints are projected to win by about 12 points therefore the Falcons would need two touchdowns in the second half to win this matchup. The StreakMaster thinks Matt Ryan and Michael Turner can get that number and will take this matchup.

Sunday Preview
November begins with a healthy helping of NFL, plus side dishes of soccer, basketball, hockey, and NASCAR.

Manchester City visits Birmingham in the pre-football football. The home team gets the draw in this match.

For the first Sunday in quite a while, most of the NFL games are close enough to list straight up. Streakers like the Houston Texans best of all, perhaps forgetting that it's never easy to travel to Buffalo during the colder months.


NFL - Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers
It's the rematch between Brett Favre and his former team, and as there have already been a few million words written about this game, I'll leave it at that.

The two Southern California MLS teams face each other in the playoffs. Most oddsmakers regard Chivas and Galaxy as evenly matched, so a draw will be a draw.

The Phillies will have to beat Yankees ace Carsten Charles Sabathia tonight to square the World Series at two wins each.
