I used to like Jim Tressel and his sweet sweater vests. Now, not so much.
Ohio State Proves There Is No Such Thing as a Lock at 3:35 p.m. ET
So, I lost my last two "Locks of the Week" that I tell Streakers in my live chats (Fridays at 1 p.m.) Both times, The Ohio State University were the cause of my losses. Right when I think the Buckeyes were having an off-year, they destroy Michigan State. That win proved to me that they were national title contenders again, so I was confident they would beat Penn State at home this weekend. But, no, they lose and look nothing like the team I saw the week before. So, that's it. I'm done with Ohio State, period. I am admitting my locks are no longer locks. Therefore, use my advice at your own risk. Updates on the "Beat The StreakMaster" mini-game groups will be coming shortly.

Two soccer matches start off our busy Monday. First, at noon ET, slight favorite CSKA Moscow is on the road at Dinamo Moscow in the Russian Premier League. Next, at 3:45 p.m. ET, Estrela Amadora travels to Braga in the Portuguese Super Liga, with the home team favored.
Our "Monday Night Football" prop features the Colts' Reggie Wayne against Tennessee's Chris Johnson in a "receiving yards vs. rushing yards" battle. Also, our first NHL prop hits our board at 8 p.m. ET, with Patrick Sharp of the Blackhawks against Antti Miettinen of the Wild in a "more goals" matchup. Both forwards are leading their squads with five goals apiece on the season.
NHL favorites for the night: Anaheim Ducks, New York Rangers (upset special?), and the Edmonton Oilers.
MNF: Indianapolis Colts (3-3) at Tennessee Titans (6-0)
The Titans look to stay perfect when they host Peyton Manning's Colts at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN. Tennessee is favored by four points and rightfully so since they're undefeated. However, you can't rule out the Colts, who have had been of the best teams in the NFL over the past few years.
Ouch! After a phenomenal two days over 70 percent, Streakers finished the day with a dismal 31.2 overall winning percentage. The two Tampa's were the top streak breakers with the Rays losing to the Phillies, 10-2, and the Bucs who lost to the Cowboys, 13-9. Two leaders sit on top of the leaderboard with 16 wins each.
