4:53 PM ET: September Monthly Winner Announced, StreakMaster's Chat Audience Nowhere To Be Found
A lot of things to go over before I head out for the weekend. First and foremost, be sure to check out our feature article on September's "Most Wins" prize winner, Debbie Payton. Debbie is an elementary school teacher, and still managed to win 55 matchups. Now that's commitment!
I also held my weekly chat earlier today and there were maybe 10 Streakers in the room. So, I'm wrong on one StreakMaster lock, then nobody shows up? To get my fans back, I'll offer two locks this for this weekend along with a fantasy sleeper for you to pick up this week:
Illinois beats Michigan at the Big House, and Eli Manning destroys Matt Hasselbeck on Sunday. As for the fantasy sleeper of the weekend, I had a long chat with TMR about who to choose and we (ok fine, he did most of the talking) decided on Chad Pennington. If you don't have him, trade for him, now! Stat! Pronto! By the way whoever is sending TMR all of these posters of Anne Hathaway and the cast of 90210, can I get something? I don't care if it's a One Tree Hill poster, I'll take anything. By the way, whoever did not participate in the chat will have their streak broken next week, a StreakMaster guarantee. I'll get my revenge.
Happy Friday, Streakers. Remember at 1:00 p.m. today you can chat with me, The StreakMaster on any topic you would like. As for today's matchups we start with the White Sox looking to bounce back against the Rays who hold a 1-0 lead in this best-of-five series. The Rays are once again heavily favored with the line opening at -155. Game two of the WNBA finals takes center stage on ESPN with another over/under matchup with the line set at 145.5. The final score was a combined 146 in Game 1 and expect another score close to this one. At 8 p.m., the Cincinnati Bearcats are on the road at Marshall with the line favoring the Bearcats by 3 points. The CFL finishes off our night at 10:00 p.m. with Calgary at Saskatchewan.
ALDS Game 2: Red Sox @ Angels
The Red Sox look to capitalize on their game one victory with another win on the west coast. Dice-K goes up against Ervin Santana in what should be a pitchers duel, but I'd give the Angels the edge in game two. They didn't win 100 games just by luck.
Yesterday's Notes: Those pesky Pitt Panthers strike again! Wow, another upset on Thursday Night Football. With South Florida and the Cubs going down, the overall streak PCT dipped below .500 for the first time in a while. 41.5% is just where The StreakMaster likes it, and how about my Dodger pick? Our new leader stands alone at 16.
