Today's Preview
We are locked and loaded for the first day of the month. It is a possible five, maybe six win day with a total of 12 matchups.

We start in London once again, beginning with Ivo Karlovic going up against Roger Federer. The odds are even for Federer winning in straight sets and the "any other result" option. Match number two features two big names in a "total sets" matchup. This is one is more than likely going to go at least four sets, but you make the call.

At 12:10 p.m. ET, we have Josh Johnson's strikeouts against Washington's hits off Johnson. Johnson has struck out 94 batters this season while giving up a total of 92 hits.

The CFL makes its triumphant return to Streak with Montreal at Calgary. The Stampeders are four-point favorites at home and they already have the most picks so far.


Wednesday Night Baseball - Giants at Cardinals
Two possible all-stars take the hill on ESPN at 8:00 p.m. ET. Can the Giants keep up their hot play or will the ever-consistent Cardinals take care of business at home?

Yesterday's Results
Streakers took a dip, finishing with a 44.1 overall winning percentage. The Cubbies and the "over" in the Serena Williams match were the big losers. Congrats to SoCalSmitty on his 76 wins in June. Good enough for our top prize of $2,500.

Today's Preview
Welcome to the final day of June! Well, it's official -- summer is here! We start in London, head to Norway, then finish off the night in the States.

Our tennis matchups require a bit of thinking. The first one has the "any other result" as the favorite. Safina went into three sets yesterday and there is a good chance the same outcome occurs today. In the second match, the "over" is the slight favorite because Vegas has this one going three sets as well.

In MLB prop action we put up a pitch-count prop for Johan Santana. Will Jerry Manuel keep his ace in for over 105 pitches or save his arm? It's a tough call but The StreakMaster predicts the over. Also, the over is the favorite in our late-night prop between the Rockies and Dodgers.


WNBA - Minnesota at Atlanta
The Dream are four-point favorites despite their sub-.500 record against the Minnesota Lynx. Look for the road team to get the job done in this one.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers had a nice day, finishing with a 57.8 overall winning percentage. The only major streak breaker was the Detroit Tigers who lost to the Oakland A's late last night.

Wimbledon returns with a huge day, the Euro Under-21 championship match, and baseball in the evening. Happy picking!

If you're playing the tennis, you'll want to keep a close eye on the match schedule, as many of our matchups could be moved hours depending upon what happens on a particular court. Out of our listed affairs, early Streakers are particularly enamored of Andy Roddick, if percentages are to be believed.

The Germans and the Brits are in the Under-21 finals, and it promises to be a close and hard-fought battle. Our matchup is for picking the champion, so any extra periods and/or shootout will be included.


Major League Baseball - New York Mets at Milwaukee Brewers
The Mets have earned themselves back-to-back appearances on ESPN - but don't ask the Streak HQ how. They hope to improve after their lackluster performance against the Yankees.

Yesterday's Results
Winning for most of the day, Streakers ended on a down note after the Seattle Storm was crushed on the road. The final tally had them a touch under 50 percent.

Sunday Blog, YO
Once in a blue moon the StreakMaster sleeps in. Wimbledon has the day off, but Sunday still offers an assortment of baseball, WNBA, golf, soccer, and NASCAR.

The PGA Traveler's finishes up today, hopefully without a weather interruption. On the Streak we're challenging you to predict the final winning score. The course has played easy, but fourth round pin placements can be difficult.

Who would have believed it - the USA men's soccer team in the Confederations Cup Final! It's their toughest task yet as their opponent is the imposing Brazil team. We see this one going to the South Americans by such a margin that the Americans not only get the draw, they get an extra goal as well.

Fans of women's basketball have two different WNBA games to choose from. The slow-starting Monarchs and Shock play in Detroit, and the surging Seattle Storm visit the Los Angeles Sparks.


Major League Baseball - New York Yankees at New York Mets
The Metropolitans have been embarassing themselves in this Subway Series - will they find any redemption on Sunday? They'll be facing winless pitcher Chien-Ming Wang. For the Yankees, star shortstop Derek Jeter is expected to be back in the lineup.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers continued to roll along happily, with their second straight day at 60 percent.

Lots of morning tennis, a NASCAR race, some WNBA, and the omnipresent baseball.

Early birds won't want to miss the morning Wimbledon on ESPN2. Saturday's Streak offers both Stepanek-Ferrer and Hanescu-Simon - plus the conclusion of the suspended Haas-Cilic match.

The NASCAR Nationwide series travels to New Hampshire; on the Streak we're pitting Joey Logano against Jason Leffler. Early Streakers are all over Logano.

The Minnesota Lynx are the professional basketball team that did NOT draft three point guards in the first round. They host the Phoenix Mercury in WNBA action.


Major League Baseball - Seattle Mariners at Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers have the best record in baseball, and are playing at home. The Mariners counter with the King. Will good pitching beat good hitting? We'll find out tonight...

Third round at Wimbledon, second round at the Traveler's, eight rounds in the Friday Night Fight? Round and round we go...

Boo! Mr. Weekley takes on Zach Johnson for the first nine holes in Cromwell.

Tommy Haas looked dominating against a couple of ball boys, but he faces a tougher test Friday afternoon as he takes on Marin Cilic in a third-round Wimbledon match. Cilic is the higher seed, but Streak HQ smells upset.

The Cubs and White Sox play an early afternoon game in, well, Chicago. Scheduled to start are Randy Wells and Jose Contreras.


Major League Baseball - San Francisco Giants at Milwaukee Brewers
Two of the hottest pitchers on the planet go at it in Miller Park where the Giants and Brewers will battle for the early lead in the wild-card race. Matt Cain hasn't lost since May 2 and bids to be the NL's first 10-game winner; Yovani Gallardo sports a 1.88 ERA over his last six starts.

Yesterday's Results
The Washington Nationals upset an otherwise great day for Streakers as they demolished John Smoltz and the Red Sox. Selectors ended up at 45 percent.

As you all know, it gets crazy on Thursday's here at Streak Headquarters and today is no different. If you play your cards right, a 5-win day is a possibility.

A few miles away from us is the PGA Travelers Championship and we have two matchups for you. Hunter Mahan should take the first one with ease but our afternoon prop is much more difficult. Can Lucas Glover carry over his luck from Bethpage or will he be burnt out?

Our two Wimbledon matches feature the opponents working on the same side. Look for Venus to take care of her opponent with ease while Roddick may have some trouble at 9:30 a.m. ET.

A few afternoon baseball as well, today. But, make sure you catch Brazil taking on South Africa. This seems like a no-brainer on paper but it may be closer than you think. Just ask Spain.


NBA Draft: How many Big East players will be taken in the first round?
Everybody knows the Big East was the best conference last season and our draft-master, Chad Ford agrees. In his latest mock draft, he had 7 former Big East players taken in the first round. Vegas says 6, so it should be a close one.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers did well last night, earning a 63.9 overall winning percentage. No major streak breakers at all but today's board could be a killer.

Today's Preview
Wimbledon, Confederations Cup and Major League Baseball headline our day.

From London we have a little Serena to start followed by a "more aces" matchup between Sam Querrey and Marin Cilic. Serena and Jarmila Groth met once before, with the match totalling 18 games. The men's matchup on the other hand, is too unpredictable to play odds here.

The U.S. takes on the number-one soccer team in the world, Spain in the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup at 2:30 p.m. ET. The Spaniards are favored by 1.5 goals but it probably should be more.

We also have some quality "straight up" MLB games with a 2008 World Series rematch prop. Who will be winning after five? The Phils or Rays? You decide.


Wednesday Night Baseball: Who will WIN this matchup?
The Yanks head to Atlanta to play the Braves on ESPN2 at 7:05 p.m. ET. Can Joba finally get rolling or will his struggles continue? Also, it will be interesting to see if Kenshin Kawakami can put together another quality start against another AL East foe.

Yesterday's Results
Streakers dipped below .500 overall with a 43.8 overall winning percentage. The top streak breaker was Christophe Rochus who lost a heartbreaker earlier in the day.

Tennis, soccer and baseball fill-up Tuesday's slate. Will dalebelock make it 22 in a row? I guess we'll see.

From the grass in London we have a "straight up" matchup and a prop to fulfill your morning needs. Murray should have the advantage in the first one.

Our Euro-21 matchups continue as well with the "under" receiving the slight edge in the match between Italy and Belarus.

Later on, the Silver Stars (-3) host the Mercury and Tim Lincecum puts his stikeouts against the total hits from the A's.

Where have all the long streaks gone?
The current incarnation of SFTC is nearing the end of its third month without any Streaker reaching 25 straight wins. While that wouldn't have been a shocker in rounds one or two, the StreakMaster has been much more lenient this time around, listing many matchups that the sportsbooks saw as 3-1 or 4-1 favorites. Hmmm. The good news is, reaching the Streak Seven is quite attainable for all you would-be millionaires!

Monday's slate
A comparatively light day, but still plenty of opportunities to boost your Streak. MLB is again the mainstay, bolstered by the start of Wimbledon. We've also put up the end of the US Open golf, some Under-21 Eurosoccer, and the championship series for NCAA baseball.

Early risers can get their tennis fix from either ESPN2 or ESPN360. On the Streak, Almagro tries his luck against Monaco, while unseeded Malisse looks to take out Rainer Schuettler.

If you prefer America's pastime, the Cardinals visit the Mets in an ESPN2 matchup. Later on, the Giants cross the Bay to take on the A's, while the Rockies head to Anaheim to face the Angels.


College World Series - LSU Tigers versus Texas Longhorns
Only two teams remain in the CWS, and it's a best-of-three for the college baseball title. Game One is scheduled to begin at approximately 7 p.m. Monday evening between two legendary programs.

In the afternoon, we have two Confederation Cup matches on our network. Brazil is slightly favored versus Italy and the U.S. are the underdogs against Egypt.

In the WNBA the Mercury (-1.5) are favored against the Storm and the Sparks are heavy favorites when the host the Monarchs.


Sunday Night Baseball: Who will WIN this matchup?

A full day of picks on this lovely little Saturday. More from Bethpage Black, the Confederations Cup and even a boxing match.

For soccer action we have a "total goals" prop between South Africa and Spain. The odds are tight in this one but the "over" will probably get more play. We also have the L.A. Galaxy on the road at San Jose.

At 5:00 p.m. ET over on ESPN Classic and 360 we have the IBF/WBO title fight between Wladimir Klitschko and Rushlan Chagaev. Chagaev is a late addition so Klitschko is the heavy favorite and the odds of him getting a knockout or TKO is -130.


Nationwide Series (Milwaukee): Which DRIVER will have the BETTER FINISH?
This may look like a mismatch on paper but that couldn't be further from the truth. Both drivers have even odds at winning this race and with that being said, The StreakMaster will take Big-Brad!

From the Euro-21 Championship we have Italy against Sweden "straight up" and a "total goals" matchup between Serbia and Belarus. The "over" has the odds in this one.

More College World Series action today as well. LSU is heavily favored over Arkansas, who they already defeated in the tournament. They combined for 10 runs in their last meeting. Will it be more or less this time around?


Friday Night Fights: Who will WIN this bout?
Two great fighters go at it tonight at 10:00 p.m. ET on the World Wide Leader. Beltran Jr. has the odds at -130 but both Featherweights can bring the heat, so pick carefully.

The U.S. Open is finally here! Can Tiger repeat or will Phil win it for Amy? Golf, soccer and much more coming at you today.

We start at Bethpage Black with Tiger Woods going up against the rest of his three-some. He has a 55% chance to winning the group, do you like those odds? To satisfy you impatient players, we have a "lower first nine" matchup between Zach Johnson and Lee Westwood. The odds are even on this one.

More Confederations Cup action with Brazil taking on the U.S. Brazil is heavily favored so we matched their winning margin (projected at 2) against the United States' total goals.

Two possible MVP's collide at 8:00 p.m. ET, when the Tigers take on the Cardinals. Pujols is having the better year so far and he is at home.


College World Series Elimination Game: Arizona State vs. North Carolina
ASU won the first meeting, can they do it again? The StreakMaster thinks so and so does Vegas, who has the Sun Devils at -160 favorites.

Fernando Torres starts us off against Iraq. He scored three goals in his first match, will he do the same versus Iraq? We also have two quality World Cup Qualifying matchups in the afternoon.

Our lone afternoon MLB matchup features Cy Young award winner Tim Linececum. He averages 7.9 strikeouts per start but will he get 8 to earn the over?

More College World Series action tonight as well. Both 1-1 teams square off in Omaha but The StreakMaster is taking Virginia.

Our late-night soccer action comes from Seattle when the newcomers host DC United. The home squad has the odds in this one.


Wednesday Night Baseball: Blue Jays @ Phillies
The 46-year-old Jamie Moyer takes the mound on ESPN at 7:05 p.m.ET. Will he pitch well enough to take down the Jays? Vegas thinks so, as the Phillies are favored at -135.

We start off in Great Britain in the WTA with Amelie Mauresmo favored at -140 over Vera Zvonareva.

Around Noon ET we have a Cricket match with South Africa favored at -150 and the "under" between Belarus and Sweden has the edge in this U-21 matchup.

In the evening there is plenty of baseball action, highlighted by a "longer outing" matchup between two stud pitchers, Justin Verlander and Adam Wainwright. Both should get through seven but Verlander should have the edge in this one. Don't forget about Streak favorite, Ichiro Suzuki in our latest prop addition. His total is predicted to be around 2.5 in runs, hits and rbi's but Streakers love the "over" so far.


College World Series: Arizona State vs. Texas

Another slow Monday but at least we have a steady pace of action throughout the day.

Tennis starts us off in the morning, with the first one in Holland and the second one in Great Britain. Marc Gicquel and Frabrice Santoro are the favorites but not by much.

On the pitch we have a rare player prop with two of the World's best, Kaka and Robinho of Brazil. They will get plenty off chances but will they put one home is the question. The U.S. also takes on Italy in Confederation Cup action. Italy has the edge here.

More College World Series as well, starting with Fullerton favored against Virginia in bracket one. We also have an over/under for the LSU-Arkansas game.


ESPN Monday Night Baseball: Brewers @ Indians
The Indians get more love from ESPN as they are on tonight against the Brewers. The Brew-Crew are favored here on the road but in the MLB anything can happen. Look for some props on this game as well

Another jam-packed Sunday with soccer, baseball, Nascar and of course, the NBA Finals.

Golf and the Confederations Cup start the day off. The under has the edge between Iraq and South Africa.

In the afternoon there is plenty to choose from. Arizona State or North Carolina? Jimmie Johnson or Tony Stewart? How about a over/under in the mismatch that is Spain versus New Zealand?

When the night falls, things will get interesting. The over/under for runs in the Southern Miss/Texas game is 10.5. Sounds like a lot of runs but with those metal bats, anything is possible. Don't forget about the NBA finals with the Magic favored by three in this elimination game.


ESPN Sunday Night Baseball - Cardinals vs. Indians
Two marquee pitchers hit the mound at 8:05 p.m. ET with Chris Carpenter's Cards against Cliff Lee's Indians. Cleveland is favored at -110 at home and The StreakMaster agrees.

College World Series (Omaha) - LSU vs. Virginia
ESPN's night game is another longtime contender (LSU) against an upstart (the Cavs). The Streak expects a lot of offense in this game.

Two MMA legends will battle it out in UFC99, which is being held in Cologne, Germany. Rich "Ace" Franklin goes against Wanderlei "The Axe Murderer" Silva in a match currently scheduled for 5 p.m., but that's likely to change depending on how long the undercard battles take.

We've tripled up on the hockey offerings - not only is the game listed straight-up, but impatient Streakers can guess the total goals in the first period if they want a faster resolution. Also, Sid the Kid gets his own callout as the Streak asks whether he'll score a point. It may seem like an easy "yes" - but he has yet to get a goal or an assist on the road in this series.

In Italian soccer, Grosseto gets the edge on the road because of the draw.

Tonight we head to Toronto for the IAAF Festival of Excellence. Our first match is based on the Women's 100 meter hurdles. Although both Canadians in the event are the favorites, Streakers like the U.S. and Jamaica runners because of the 6-2 advantage on the track. In the much anticipated men's 100 meter run, Usain Bolt is the big-time favorite so we match him up against himself. In his last race, Bolt finished with a time of 9.77. Just something to think about.

At 2:45 p.m. ET, we have more World Cup Qualifying between Norway and Holland. The odds are the same for the over and under.

More MLB matchups dominate our night with a MLS match in between. Look out for our late-night props with an over/under on runs before the fifth in the Twins-A's game and a plate appearance matchup for Adrian Gonzalez. He was walked three times Monday, so that side of our matchup is the favorite here.


MLB Yankees at Red Sox: Who will have more total bases?
Expensive versus cheap is the matchup here. Will A-Rod and Tex live up to their big-time contracts tonight for Streakers or will Youuuuuk and Bay get the job done for the Sox? It should be a close one but very entertaining nonetheless.

A quiet day after a busy weekend. With most sports off, the Streak relies heavily on baseball.

In England they prefer cricket, so we begin our morning in Nottingham with a Twenty20 match between Australia and Sri Lanka. Look for the men from Down Under to use offspinner Nathan Hauritz in an effort to stem their current losing streak.

The Tigers and the White Sox play an afternoon game - scheduled pitchers are Galarraga and Richard. The teams' offenses are moving in opposite directions, as Detroit's bats have been getting busy while Chicago's lie dormant.


Monday Night Baseball - Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees
The Rays and the Yankees have developed quite the rivalry over the last couple seasons. ESPN's coverage comes to you at 7 p.m. from the home run haven also known as new Yankee Stadium.

Our night ends on the West Coast where the Diamondbacks and Padres both must recover from Sunday's 18-inning marathon.

A possible 5-way day with a total of 13 matchup on this lovely Wednesday.

We start in Paris once again with quarter-final action between two of the top-ten women in the game. Serena is the favorite here at -120. Also in the a.m. we have a "total games" match between Federer and Monfils with the o/u at 39.5 games. Last year they met up in the semi's and there was a total of 41 games.

Our first ever U-20 soccer match makes the board with Netherlands receiving the draw against favored Argentina.

Starting off our night is Wednesday Night Baseball on ESPN between the Red Sox and Tigers. Since the BoSox are heavily favored we match up top hitters, Jason Bay and Miguel Cabrera in a "more total bases" matchup.

Today's Preview
More French Open tennis to go along with a variety of MLB matchups.

Two quality matchups start us off in the morning both coming from France. Maria Sharapova and Andy Murray are the slight favorites here but check the board frequently because the times are subject to change.

Our lone afternoon matchup is a combination between two games at two different times. Turkey hosts Azerbaijan at 1:00 p.m. ET, while Germany travels to the United Arab Emirates. Both Turkey and Germany are heavy favorites therefore this one is a toss-up.

Some interesting MLB matchups include a "higher total" matchup between Roy Halladay's strikeouts against the Angels hits off Roy. Expect the matchup to be around 6-8 for both sides. Also, Brad Hawpe squares off against Carlos Lee in a "more total bases" matchup followed by a "earned runs" prop for Jake Peavy's start against the Phillies. He is at home but is coming off an injury, so be careful here.
