Wisconsin Badgers Sam Dekker shouldn't leave for 2015 NBA Draft

Sam Dekker Slam

Sam Dekker made his debut with the Wisconsin Badgers in 2012 and ever since there has been rumblings of the kid eventually leaving for the NBA.

There's no doubt he should make the jump to the pros, the questions lie in when he's ready to make the jump and will his game translate to the next level?

Our resident basketball expert, David Kay, has Dekker going 19th overall in his 2015 NBA Mock Draft. However, I strongly feel that the young forward should stay through his senior year to be the best prospect he can be.

College basketball espn logo

Welcome to the fifth installment of my newest weekly feature. The Streak Journal will analyze a group of specific Streak for the Cash (SFTC) props from the previous week.

The purpose of this new journal is to provide streakers with a unique perspective of the props picked by ESPN’s Streakmaster and give you the straight statistics which will hopefully provide some insight to help you build a longer streak.

First Week: Beware of the NBA’s back-to-backs (Jan. 20th-26th)
Second Week: Is March Madness here early (Jan. 27th-Feb. 2nd)
Third Week: Heavy favorites are no sure thing in NHL props (Feb. 3rd-Feb. 9th)
Fourth Week: No such thing as a 99% curse on Streak for the Cash

This week (Monday, February 17th through Sunday, February 23), I focused on straight up college basketball props because learning from these will provide streakers with the most help going in to the month of March. When I took a look at college basketball in the second week of the Streak Journal, it was straight chaos. Not so much this time around:

First Week: Beware of the NBA’s back-to-backs (Jan. 20th-26th)
Second Week: Is March Madness here early (Jan. 27th-Feb. 2nd)
Third Week: Heavy favorites are no sure thing in NHL props (Feb. 3rd-Feb. 9th)

This week (Monday, February 10th through Sunday, February 16), I focused on Streakers instead of a specific sport, particularly props tilted 95% or more towards one side of the prop. I came up with this idea because I wanted to support or dispute the claim of a “99 percent curse” or “trap game” and here’s what I found:

1. Houston Texans - Teddy Bridgewater*, QB, Louisville (6-3, 205)


I had Bridgewater here in my first mock and I don’t see that changing. The Texans simply don’t need Jadeveon Clowney and Bridgewater has all the tools to be valuable in Head Coach Bill O’Brien’s system.

Welcome to the Streak Rumor Mill which more specifically examines big stories swirling around the world of sports and their speculated impact on the game of Streak for the Cash.

This week I focus on college basketball because it’s been quite frankly brutal to predict this month and it’s not going anywhere as we head to conference tournaments and March Madness.

Here’s what is milling around this week:

Badgers Fans should be all in for Ryan Suter in 2014 Sochi Olympics

Ryan Suter Olympics

Americans typically have no problem getting exciting to watch the Olympics which is completely understandable because we have undoubtedly some of the best athletes in the world.

However, what makes Americans the most excited about "The Games," is when they can cheer on for a local hero.

The state of Wisconsin is in for a treat in the 2014 Sochi Olympics because former Badgers defenseman and Madison, Wis., native Ryan Suter is one of the top dogs on the United State Hockey Team.
