YESTERDAY'S PLAYS
Matchup Selection W/L

Flyers vs Rangers
Rangers

Won
$100
Play Type: Free

Its a big Tuesday, as Ben Burns is firing with his NHL GAME OF THE MONTH. He's also testing a PERFECT 6-0 YTD record on top-rated CBB totals. With another winner yesterday, all top-rated CBB is now 24-10 the L34. Overall, Ben's top-rated basketball is on a long-term streak which has generated more than $90K in profits!

At a pick'em price, I believe that the Rangers are offering us solid value on Tuesday. Off three straight losses, their first losing streak of more than two games since October, the Rangers should be "hungry." Over the years, NY is 88-65 (+17.6) when off three or more consecutive losses. That includes an 8-2 (+5.8) mark the last 10 in that situation. The Flyers, 16-27 (-14.7) the last 43 times that they played with exactly two day's rest in between games, are still 9-11 on the road. Meanwhile the Rangers are still 15-11 at home. Consider New York.

Wisconsin vs Purdue
OVER 133½ -110 Lost
$110.0
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on Wisconsin and Purdue to finish OVER the total (10* BLUE CHIP TOTAL). Both teams have seen recent games finish below the total. Those results have worked in our favor by helping to keep this O/U line a little lower than it easily could have been. I believe it'll prove to be too low. True, Wisconsin games are averaging only 134 points. However, Purdue games are averaging a much higher 147.7. Conference games, though lower-scoring than non-conference ones, are still averaging 139. Look for the Boilermakers, who have scored 70 or more in 11 straight games, to put up 75+, the Badgers chipping in enough to send the final combined score OVER the relatively low number.

Golden Knights vs Predators
Predators

Won
$100
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on NASHVILLE (10* GAME OF MONTH). Playing with "double-revenge," I expect the Predators to be extremely motivated this evening. Both these teams have been much better at home. The Preds, who lost 3-0 on 1/2 at Vegas, check in off b2b victories, most recently a 2-1 win over Edmonton. They're 13-6 at home. On the other hand, the Knights lost vs. the same Oilers last time out and are 11-9 on the road. When the Preds hosted the Knights earlier, they were laying -160. Tonight's line is considerably lower and that's providing us with excellent value. Payback time!

Mavs vs Nuggets
Nuggets

Lost
$110.0
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on DENVER (10* VIOLATOR). The Mavs got the better of the Nuggets when these teams met earlier. However, that 12/4 meeting came at Dallas and the Nuggets were still without Jokic. Tonight's rematch is at Denver and the Nuggets' star center is back and looked in top form (23 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists) last time out. While the Nuggets are just 7-16 on the road, they're an impressive 15-5 here at Denver. Last game here saw them win by double-digits. The Mavs are 9-15 at home, 6-14 on the road. Note that the Mavs will be without Barea, which hurts their depth at guard. Look for the revenge-minded Nuggets to continue their strong play at home, picking up the cover along the way. 

SERVICE BIO

Age: 42

Background

In "Outliers," Malcolm Gladwell asks the question: "What makes high achievers different?" Gladwell suggests that those at the top of their field have a number of similarities - that their upbringing (culture, family, what generation they came from, experiences) had much to do with their success.

As a professional sports handicapper, Ben Burns is widely recognized as being "at the top of his field." A look at Ben's upbringing shows that he fits Gladwell's model to a tee.

Exposed to the world of point spreads early and often as a child, Burns reached adulthood as the Internet was first beginning to explode, just as the first offshore sportsbooks were springing up. By that time he'd already spent thousands of hours learning and studying stats.

From an early age it became apparent to family and friends that Ben wasn't a "typical" fan. At age 11, he was mentioned in a major newspaper (Toronto Star) for correctly predicting a high profile trade before the Major League Baseball trading deadline. (Winner of the contest got tickets to the All Star game.)

Ben's father and uncles were always involved in a weekly NFL (ATS) pool. Some of Ben's earliest memories included that pool and his fascination with it. As soon as he was allowed to play, Ben demonstrated an uncanny ability to surprise the adults. Around this time, one of his uncles moved his casino business to the Caribbean. This was the environment which he came from.

The caption underneath Ben's high-school graduation photo references Ben's love for betting on football. That's because he was famous throughout his school for annually winning the local football contest, along with the $1700 per year which was awarded to the champ.

Coming of age right as the first sports books were coming online, Ben was fortunate to enjoy some success with his some of his early online sports betting endeavors. He did so well that the first shop he ever played at ended up refusing to take his hockey bets.

Also, in the very early days of the Internet, Ben won an NBA playoff contest, put on by a company which was called NSS.net. The contest victory awarded him a trip for two to Las Vegas, $1000 cash, a limo at his disposal, free shows, hotel and live sports odds for a year. Not a bad prize for a kid in his early 20s. However, the bigger prize was that Ben was exposed to the world of "professional sports handicapping." Inspired by his personal success and encouraged by his peers, Ben first made his picks available to the public in 1998.

Achievements in Handicapping/Sports

Top Ranked NFL Handicapper

From the years of 1998-2007, Ben's selections were independently documented at one of the Internet's earliest and most respected sports monitors, Big Guy Sports. During that time, Ben earned literally dozens of documented Top 3 finishes in football, basketball, baseball AND hockey, including numerous #1 titles. Competing against a field of 150 of the biggest names in the industry, he ranked as the #1 NFL handicapper in the existence of that sports monitor, in their All-Time rankings.  No competing handicapping service ever came close to matching his NFL record. In fact, Ben also ranked as the #1 combined NFL/NCAA football handicapper.

10 Straight Super Bowl Winners

A big part of the reason for Ben's #1 NFL titles was his annual success in the playoffs. He fared particularly well with his Super Bowl selections. In fact, from 1999-2007, he released 10 Super Bowl picks (3 Sides, 7 totals) and went a perfect 10-0. (All selections independently documented.) In the middle of that 10-0 streak, in the 2002-2003 season, Ben won with both the Bucs and the "over" the year that they beat the Raiders. That win was particularly sweet as he predicted that Tampa would win the Super Bowl in a number of national magazines, prior to the season even starting.

Fantasy Legend

Ben got pretty seriously into the DFS world in 2014 and 2015. Recently, he was featured as "The High Roller" in the 2015 documentary, "Living the Fantasy." A regular fixture at Fan Duel and Draft Kings live championship events, Burns has taken down 6-figure scores in football, basketball AND baseball. While many of the other prominent DFS players come from a poker background, two decades as a sports handicapper provide a unique perspective.

Biggest Win of 2016

The year has just begun but Ben has already enjoyed some notable wins. His "Bowl Game of the Year," which happened to be a total (WVU/ASU "over") saw the teams combine for 85 points and 1196 total yards, all of them in regulation. Closing out the campaign with wins on Clemson AND the "over" in the championship game was also rewarding.  

Systems Used For Handicapping

Bruce Lee noted: "Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style of system." Lee was known to talk about being shapeless, formless (like water) and ready to adapt to any situation. Likewise, Burns doesn't rely on any one particular methodology. Rather, he combines fundamental, technical and situational techniques, making use of any and all data, which he deems relevant to the situation.

Ben does tend to pay particular attention to the 'situational' side of things. Among numerous other factors, this includes trying to determine when (and why) a team will be extra motivated ("pumped up") to play its best and also when a team may be ripe for a "letdown." Burns has a contrarian nature and this trait is often revealed in his selections.  

Betting Philosophy

Ever adapting, Burns is just as likely to take points as he is to lay them. Over the years, he's played more "unders" than "overs" but that doesn't mean that he won't pull the trigger on an "over" when the time is right to do so. While many handicappers shy away from playing MLB/NHL favorites on the money-line, Ben has proven that one can be highly successful by doing so. For him, it’s all about value. If he can get a team at -130 that he likes and that believes should be -160, than that's a play.

 

Rating and Titles of Plays

Ben uses a scale of 5-10 to show his level of confidence with each play. Plays may include "titles" in order to give users a better idea of what to expect. Some of those titles include:

Personal Favorite - Strongest favorite (or pick'em game) in that sport for the day.

Best Bet - Strongest underdog (or pick'em game) in that sport for the day, occasionally can be a total.

Blue Chip Total - Strongest rated total in that sport/category for the day.

Main Event - Big play which is featured on national television.

Game Of The Week/Month/Year - Top rated side or total for that particular week/month/year.
