Spanish Copa Del Rey Match Explanation at 3:06 p.m. ET
This match was originally scheduled for 2:45 p.m. ET, but for reasons (so far unknown) the match began at 2:00 p.m. ET. That being said, Streak Headquarters has come to the decision that for Streakers who picked this matchup BEFORE 2:00 p.m. ET will still be credited for the win. If you picked after the games start time, you will have your picks unlocked but will not get credit for this match. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Today's Preview
Ladies and gentleman, the PGA Tour is back! The Sony Open begins this afternoon (morning in Hawaii). Our matchups feature Davis Love III slightly favored against Zach Johnson at 1 p.m. ET, then Nathan Green favored against Shigeki Maruyama at 5:50 p.m. ET.

Our soccer match features the second leg of the Copa Del Rey quarterfinal matchup between Osasuna and Athletic Bilbao. The first leg was a 1-1 tie, so if there is a winner, that team will advance. If the score ends in a 1-1 score at the end of regulation, they will play extra time to get a winner. Although, if the game ends in an 2-2 or 3-3 tie, Osasuna will advance to the next round because of the away goals rule.

At 7 p.m. our first college basketball matchup takes place with a "more 3-pointers" matchup between Purdue and Northwestern. The Wildcats make an average of 7.7 3-pointers per game while Purdue makes 6.8. Minnesota is at Wisconsin (-6) at 9 p.m. ET and at the same time, Danny Green of North Carolina takes on Sylven Landesberg of Virginia. Green averages five points less per game but had 22 against Wake Forest on Sunday. Lastly, we have Arizona State (-1) at USC in a late-night battle.

Other "straight up" matchups include, the Oilers at Wild (-145) and the Sabres at Stars (-135) in the NHL, and the Suns (-1) at Nuggets in our only NBA matchup.
