I tried looking and didn't see anything. Anyone else play this on ESPN.com? It is pretty entertaining and a fun way to get involved with games you don't care about other then just betting on them.

They are starting a new season today so now is the perfect time to get in on it, I made a wolfweb if anyone wants to join.

I'm going with Spain to win, 3 goals or more in the USA World Cup qualifier and the Suns at night.

^ Not quite the same thing.

I've looked at this before, and I always end up forgetting about it.



When I remember to do it, it is a good time, though.

Yeah gunzz I searched first but all I found was the MLB beat the streak, this is different.

In this you are trying to put together a streak of predicting games correctly, whether it is picking the winner, over/under or various prop bets for a bunch of sports. This season they changed it and the top 7 streak pickers will win 10k and one of them will win a million. Last season it was anyone who got a streak of 26 won a million (nobody did).

I've been in on this since January. It's a helluva lot harder than it sounds. My best streak is only six games. And I've had two separate six-game losing streaks. I'm in a group with about 45 bloggers from The Kinston Free Press, and the best streak in our group was 11.

Still, I keep on playing and keep on thinking I'm gonna win.

I've been playing this. My longest win streak is only 5 though. I think I was somewhere around 37-24-2 or something like that before it reset

Haha yeah I know how you feel. I've gotten to 9 twice. Personally I think its better to try for the monthly and win the 1k. I was staying pretty even close to the monthly leaders (within 5) for about half this month, then I missed a weekend and I was down around 15 like that.

I got a streak of 6 or 7. My overall record isn't that great because I'll pick the next available game everytime for my 1st bet just to get the streak started.

i just joined. it sounds like some fun.

can you make more than one pick per day?

^Yea. You can make a new pick after the game of your first pick ends. So sometimes it's possible to get in 4 picks a day while other times you might only get 2. It just depends on what games are available for the day.

Yeah, typically try and plan your picks so you can maximize per day, that is, if you have a low streak or you are going for the highest monthly total. I usually check it in the morning and try to plan it out, overtimes and other things can delay games and screw you up though.

Yeah it was golf. Mine did too but I was at work and didn't notice so I couldn't pick soccer. Got Penn St about to be in the W column and I'll be taking Denver later.

i can't make up my mind on that game. denver is hot right now, but didn't they just clinch a playoff spot? might make them slack up a bit. meh, i'm not that knowledgeable about the nba anyway.

LeBron points + rebs was an easy win over Jamison points + rebs + assists.

I'm on a roll right now, started off with 5 straight. I have a feeling I'm going to whiff on soccer today though. Whenever I have a good streak going I tend to get it messed up by soccer.

So what happens if there's a push? Does the streak continue? I don't want to lose my first 3-pick streak.
