On Friday, north of the border, Ottawa will visit Winnipeg. The Redblacks are off an impressive 29-11 road win on Sunday. However, keep in mind that victory came against a Montreal squad which has really been struggling of late. Also, lets not forget that the Redblacks are still a sub-500 team. Now, they play on an extra short week against a very well-rested Winnipeg team. The Bombers, who won by three at Ottawa back in August, were last in action way back on 9/9. They destroyed Saskatchewan by a 48-28 margin in that one. With the schedule in their favor, provided that the line doesn't climb above a touchdown, consider laying the points, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers

I'm playing on ARIZONA (10* GAME OF WEEK). I lost with the Dbax yesterday; they're now 0-2 in the series. That won't stop me from coming right back with them to avoid the sweep though. Arizona is a perfect 5-0 the last five times that Ray took the mound, winning those five games by 18 combined runs. In those five starts, one against these same Padres, Ray allowed only six combined runs through a total of 32 1/3 innings. That translates to a 1.39 ERA. Over that span, he had an awesome 55 K's while issuing just six walks. In fact, he's off four straight double-digit strikeout efforts. Dominant. While it certainly hasn't all been his fault, as he's actually been fairly respectable, the Padres are 0-5 in Lamet's last five starts. Unfortunately, it doesn't get any easier for the rookie here, as he's unlikely to get much in terms of run support. The Padres average less than 3.5 runs per game vs. southpaws and they're facing a red hot one. Behind another strong effort from Ray, an angry Arizona team bounces back and closes out its road trip with a win.

I'm playing on MIAMI (8* BREAKFAST CLUB). The Marlins took yesterday's game and I expect them to close out the series with another victory this afternoon. In four 2017 appearances against the Mets, including two starts, Urena has a 2.25 ERA. At 13-6 with a 3.62 ERA, Urena is having a very solid season. He's been particularly dominant during the day. In nine afternoon starts, he's 5-1 with a superb 2.13 ERA. Montero is 5-10 with a 5.08 ERA on the season. He threw 108 pitches last time out and that didn't even translate to five complete innings. In 12 daytime appearances, seven starts, he's got a 5.77 ERA and 1.69 WHIP. Over his last three starts, he's allowed 16 hits, while walking 12 batters, in just 15 combined innings. All things considered, this line could easily be higher. Marlins roll.

I'm playing DETROIT on the run-line (+1.5 runs, 8* BREAKFAST CLUB.) The A's won a wild one by a 9-8 score yesterday. While I expect the Tigers to bounce back and avoid the sweep, another close one won't surprise. With the A's favored on the money-line, we're able to get the Tigers at a reasonable price on the run-line. That's where I believe I have the best chance of cashing a ticket on this matchup. The Tigers have been pretty bad under the lights this season. However, they've been respectable when playing during the day, most recently winning 12-0. Admittedly, Sanchez's overall stats are not good. However, he showed he can still pitch last time out and brings some momentum and confidence into this afternoon's game, as a result. Through six innings, he allowed just one run while striking out 11. You don't record 11 K's in six innings without doing something right. Speaking of strike-outs, the last time Sanchez faced the A's (April last year) he recorded nine K's, in 5 2/3 innings, en route to a victory. Mengden's got a 7.07 ERA in three daytime starts, opposing hitters batting .316. Expect AT LEAST a "run-line cover" for the home team. 

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.
