In today’s version of ESPN Streak for the Cash, there are 22 total options on the board from the EPL, NFL, NBA,  NCAA College Cup Final, and college basketball. I posted all my NFL picks for the day earlier this morning (click here for post), so for all the breakdown of my NFL picks click and read there. Here’s my picks of the day, a brief reasoning why, and how confident I am in each one:

Streak Picks for 12/9

8:30- Manchester United win or draw: Unless you’re in the red, I’d avoid this one since it could go either way. I’ll take the draw and the team atop the table in this despite the crazy-good homefield advantage that Man City has. Both these teams are so good that picking against either is crazy, so avoid this game if you can. Confidence Meter: 2

1:00- Brandon Weeden: Weeden threw for 364 yards in Oakland last week. Quinn’s season-high was also last week, but it was a more modest 201 yards. Yardage props like this can be trickier than they appear on the surface, but Weeden seems a solid pick. Confidence Meter: 4

1:00- St. Louis Rams: See my NFL Picks for analysisConfidence Meter: 5

1:00- Cincinnati Bengals: See my NFL Picks for analysisConfidence Meter: 6

1:00- Atlanta Falcons: See my NFL Picks for analysisConfidence Meter: 6.5

1:00- Chicago Bears: See my NFL Picks for analysisConfidence Meter: 7

2:05- Georgetown Hoyas: College soccer is unpredictable and Indiana has overcome some big odds to get here (see their #16 seed). However, I watched the Hoyas face the top team in the country for most of the season and take down the Terps of Maryland in their last game. Georgetown looked incredibly and can claim the National Championship by knocking off the Cinderella Hoosiers. Confidence Meter: 4

4:25- Arizona Cardinals win or single-digit loss: I know I’ll be in the minority here, but see my NFL Picks for analysisConfidence Meter: 4

4:25- 6 TD or more: This one will be a shootout and I can see both throwing three or either Brees or Manning throwing four. Confidence Meter: 3

6:00- California : The UNLV Runnin’ Rebels are up to number 21 in the rankings but could be without Mike Moser for a second consecutive game as the face the Golden Bears in Berkeley who enter play tonight with a 6-1 record that matches UNLV’s. Cal was undefeated before losing their last time out to Wisconsin on the road but have been dominant at home behind Allen Crabbe and Justin Cobbs who both average almost 20 points a game. I think the Bears get the upset here at home and knock off the REbs. Confidence Meter: 4

8:00- Orlando Magic: The Magic head to the desert to take on the Suns as Phoenix returns home on the second night of a back-to-back. Orlando lost in Sacramento dropping to just 3-7 on the road this year. Phoenix has lost six in a row and seven of their last eight, so both teams come in struggling. I think the back-to-back will be what unravels Phoenix in this one and that Orlando heads home with a win. Confidence Meter: 5

8:30- Packers win by Double Digits: See my NFL Picks for analysisConfidence Meter: 6
