Beat the Streak Report: Monday, May 24
The calendar is about to reach June and the highest streak we have right now is 24 games.
Not that getting to 24 isn’t a stellar accomplishment, but come on people! Does anybody want to win $3,000,000?
I know this game takes incredible patience and a tiny bit of research but we’re not trying to solve Good Will Hunting math problems or attempting to put together one of those exile puzzles from Fresh Meat II here; it’s baseball for crying out loud!
Expert guy who only has a three-game streak right now.
Time for Monday’s picks …and there’s only four games. This should be a doozy

“postbud32” is enjoying his/her 15 minutes of fame atop the leaderboard with a 24-game streak and is officially 42.1 percent on the way to buying as many KFC Double Down sandwiches he could ever dream of.
That just can’t be a good idea.
