It’s a big day for streakers in ESPN’s Streak for the Cash as it’s a all out stunt day full of props in which the longest streak gets a cool $5K. There’s no better prescription for a busted bracket than plenty more picking to get you through Friday. It also means there’s an insane amount of picks throughout the day so in this daily blog I’ll treat it a little differently.
Normally I tell you the picks I like, give you a brief analysis and then my confidence in that pick. With 45 picks on the board already for today, its a whole different separate competition from the monthly picks. I’ll resume the regularly scheduled picks tomorrow after this one-day special.
Today, I’ll run down every pick, tell you which side I like and how confident I am on a scale of 1-10.
