Wild vs Blues
-109 at betonline
Play Type: Free

The Blues are catching the Wild at the end of a 7-game road trip. Earlier in the trip, the Wild won here at St. Louis. Since that loss, the Blues have won their next two games by a combined margin of 8-1, scores of 4-1 and 4-0. Note that they're a lucrative 8-4 (+5.1) the last 12 times that they were off a shutout victory. At roughly a pick'em price, consider backing the revenge-minded Blues. 

Off another HUGE Saturday and WHITE HOT ACROSS THE BOARD, Ben Burns is looking to "break out the broom" on Sunday. It all starts with a BIG PLAY on the soccer pitch, where he's an EPIC 29-11 on the year. Speaking of big plays, over recent years, Burns' top-rated plays have produced an AMAZING $90.7K IN PROFIT. That includes a SICK 6-1 RECORD the L2 days & a MASSIVE 24-11 ($11,310) mark since late October. Jump on board and ride the wave!

Flames vs Sharks
-170 at GTBets
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on SAN JOSE (10* PERS FAV). Off back-to-back losses, the Sharks, who had yesterday off, are going to be in an angry mood. Both previous times that the Sharks were off b2b losses they responded with a victory. They won those games by a combined score of 9-4. Unlike their hosts, the Flames played (at LA) last night. That 1-0 victory notwithstanding, the Flames have struggled vs. divisional opponents; they're now a money-burning 27-39 against Pacific teams the past couple of seasons. During the same stretch, the Sharks were a profitable 35-20 (+12.2) in divisional play. Given those numbers, its not surprising to learn that the Sharks have dominated the Flames in recent h2h play. Schedule and venue in their favor, expect that dominance to continue this evening, the Sharks improving to 30-15 the last 45 times that they were off a loss by two more goals.

Manchester United vs Manchester City
UNDER 3¼ -108 Lost
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on Manchester City and Man. U to finish UNDER the total (10* TOTAL OF WEEK). Man City is the stingiest team in the Premier League. Through 11 matches, Man City has allowed a mere four goals. With or without Pogba, who is questionable, United is likely going to have real trouble scoring. On the other side, Man U just held Juventus to a single goal in its last game, a 2-1 victory. Thats the fourth straight match that the Red Devils have conceded only one goal, as their previous games saw them limit Everton, Bournemouth and Juventus all to one goal with final scores of 2-1, 2-1 and 0-1. Expect a relatively low-scoring affair.

Falcons vs Browns
+5 -115 at Bovada
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on CLEVELAND (8* BREAKFAST CLUB). While the Falcons have been rolling lately, they're 0-2 SU/ATS against AFC opposition. In fact, they're just 2-9 ATS (3-8 SU) their last 11 against AFC teams. Cleveland, on the other hand, is 2-0 ATS against NFC teams. While the Browns are playing their second straight at home, the Falcons are playing their second straight at home. While the weather isn't expected to be terrible, its still a November game in Cleveland. Expect that to favor the Browns, who bounce back with AT LEAST a cover.

Saints vs Bengals
+5 -105 at sportsbook
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on CINCY (10* GAME OF WEEK). The Saints have sure been on a nice roll. However, this will mark the fifth time that they played on the road, in their past seven games. Off a big win over the previously undefeated Rams, preceded by a big win over the Vikings, the team which knocked them out of the playoffs last season, I feel that the Saints are going to be ripe for a letdown here. Note that the Saints have long struggled against the AFC North, going 8-20-2 ATS their last 30. While the Saints were busy battling the Rams last week, the Bengals are coming off a bye. The Bengals have won three of four home games and I expect AT LEAST a cover Sunday afternoon.

Lions vs Bears
UNDER 45 -110 Lost
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on Chicago/Detroit UNDER the total (10* TOTAL OF YEAR). Three of the last four meetings between these rivals have stayed below the total. All three of those 'unders' finished with 37 or fewer combined points. I'm expecting another relatively low-scoring affair. The Bears have held each of their last two opponents to 10 points or less. Though they scored 41 points, much of that was directly or indirectly from the defense. The Chicago offense managed only 190 yards and 11 first downs, in fact. As for the Lions, they managed a mere nine points themselves, last week. The previous week, they scored just 14. The Bears have seen the UNDER go 12-7-1 their last 20 home games. That includes a 3-0-1 UNDER mark in games here when the O/U line ranged from 42.5 to 45. Expect those stats to improve Sunday afternoon. 


Age: 42


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 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.
