Frozen soccer fields, where "I'm not playing in this weather" happens.



English Conference Match Cancelled at 11:16 a.m. ET
Due to a frozen pitch, the match between Woking and Northwich Victoria has been cancelled. All picks are now unlocked. Good luck the rest of the way!

The English Conference starts us off in the afternoon when Woking hosts Northwich Victoria, with the home team favored even with the draw against them.

After that, make your pick with a jam-packed evening. There are three NHL games with the Wild at Flyers (-155), Hurricanes at Panthers (-116) and the Penguins at Predators (-110).

We have some new props in college basketball beginning with Minnesota team steals vs. Iowa team three pointers at 7:05 p.m. ET on ESPN2. The Gophers average nine steals per game. Iowa typically hits that number of three-pointers but the Hawkeyes in their first two conference games have had 14 and five, so this is a tossup. The struggling Nevada Wolf Pack take on New Mexico State at 9 p.m. ET followed by some West Coast love with the nation's eighth-leading scorer, Josh Akognon (23.5 points per game) of Cal State Fullerton against the top two scorers from Cal Poly.

One lone NBA matchup features Marcus Camby against "The Big Fundamental" Tim Duncan in a points plus rebounds matchup. Camby has had four games with 20-plus rebounds but Duncan usually has big games against the Clippers.


NCAA Football (BCS National Title Game): Florida vs. Oklahoma
Here is the game we have all been waiting for! The Gators and Sooners finally square off in Miami, with the Gators currently favored by four points. The StreakMaster predicted a Florida national title in August and expects that prediction to come through with Florida winning 38-28.

In our national title game prop, we put the past two Heisman winners against each other in a more touchdowns prop. In their last seven games, when both quarterbacks settled down, Bradford has had 28 touchdowns to Tebow's 27. Expect a 4-3 victory with Tebow taking the crown.
