    Beat The Streak on ESPN.com

    Is anybody playing this? One of the poker dealers at Prairie Meadows told me about it earlier this evening. I thought it sounded like fun. Just curious how big of a streak anybody on CF has had.

    just broke my high streak of 8 today, picked Whales in rugby over France. I figured the French suck at everything else, why not rugby.

    Re: Beat The Streak on ESPN.com

    I started playing in December and my biggest streak is 6. It seems like it should be easier than it is, but they typically pick games where the spread is close so it isn't so easy to pick. A lot of times you will see the seemingly better team on the road against a slightly worse team. Its fun though.

    It's really fun and really frustrating at the same time. ESPN really knows how to pick games that look easy on paper, but are a whole different story once gametime rolls around

    Re: Beat The Streak on ESPN.com

    I was going to start a thread to see if anyone was playing this, but I searched and found this one.

    I just pushed my streak to 3 (!! ). Is anyone else playing this? What is the longest streak you have reached?

    France actually put together a pretty decent world cup team a few years ago.

    Re: Beat The Streak on ESPN.com

    I just noticed someone has 24 picks in a row and needs 3 more for the Million and now only has 2 days to do it in. This current round ends on the 31st with a new game starting on the 1st of April. I think he has made 10K for picking 24 in a row.

    Read some of the comments on his profile, I think that would get pretty irritating after a while but 1 Mil may make it a bit easier.
