Streak for the Cash: Cardinals over Phillies

I’ve never been much of the gambling type, never had the cohonais to risk money that I don’t have. Besides, whenever I’ve bet on sports, mainly fantasy football, it was never about winning the money, it was always about bragging rights. I have to admit, when something is riding on a game, whether it’s money or pride, it makes the game more exciting, it just does. When I stopped betting on games, I began to be less interested in games that didn’t involve my home teams…until I started Streak for the Cash.

ESPN’s Streak for the Cash gave me a rooting interest for games that I wouldn’t otherwise care about, and now I’m addicted. I try to pick a game, mainly baseball during this time of year, every day.

For the remainder of the baseball season, I will try to do the same for you: give you one baseball game a day that I think is a lock for the Streak for the Cash. Let’s see how big of a streak we can build.
