in 12h

Early money is on Boston to extend its winning streak to 16 games, but not so fast. Dallas might be ready to turn the corner after a horrific start and its out-of-nowhere 32-point thrashing of a solid Milwaukee team on Saturday night could be a sign of good things to come as the Mavs adjust to a smaller lineup with Dirk Nowitzki now playing the 5. Boston, meanwhile, has had to dig itself out of double-digit holes in several recent games and coach Brad Stevens is warning that doing that on a regular basis is not sustainable. Dallas looks ripe for a cover in this one as oddsmakers start posting lines that will inevitably eat into the Celtics’ amazing 14-2-1 ATS record.

8* ANNIHILATOR on the LA Kings. The Kings come in off a relatively simple 4-0 win over the Panthers at home yesterday (I had LA in that one) and I’m expecting them to carry that momentum over here. Vegas returns home after a 5-2 win at Vancouver. LA will turn to Jonathan Quick in net and he’s so far 9-8 with a 2.13 GAA on the year, including 5-2 with a 2.11 GAA on the road. The Kings average 3.00 GPG and allow just 2.42, ranked second in the league. The Knights average 3.62 GPG and allow 2.85. Malcolm Subban is expected to get the call in net for this one and he’s 2-0 with a 2.06 GAA on the year. Vegas is 7-1 at home, but I think it’s set up for a letdown here against an LA team that comes in off a solid win. I also expect the veteran Quick to outduel his counterpart between the pipes. In my opinion, the value is on the visitors. Kings roll.

10* PERSONAL FAVORITE on Minnesota. The Western Carolina Catamounts opened the 2017/18 campaign with back-to-back losses, before finally scoring a victory over lowly Hiwassee College. Western Carolina though had 21 turnovers in that one and was also outshot 45.3 percent to 36.7 percent. Minnesota is rolling along at 3-0 to open the year, most recently hammering Niagara 107-81 on Wednesday. The Golden Gophers played swarming defense, holding the Purple Eagles to just 36.4 percent shooting, while countering with 53.8 percent themselves. I simply can’t see the Catamounts mustering any sort of offensive attack today and I don’t expect the Golden Gophers to waste this opportunity by “looking past” their opponent. This spread could in fact be a lot larger in my opinion. Lay the points, Minnesota rolls.

10* PERSONAL FAVORITE on Phoenix Suns. I think the Bulls have a predictable letdown here after they broke their five game losing streak in their 123-120 victory at home over the Hornets. Conversely, I believe the Suns are going to build off their impressive 122-113 road victory at the Lakers on Friday, snapping a two-game slide. These bottom feeders split a pair of games last year, each winning on its home floor. Despite their latest win, the Bulls are still horrible offensively, ranked second to last in scoring with 94.8 PPG. The strength of the team lies on the defensive side as Chicago is allowing 104.2. The Suns can run with the best of them though, averaging 107.6 PPG, while allowing 116.6 per night. Phoenix catches a break facing a tired Bulls team. Lay the points, Suns roll.

8* BEST BET on Oakland Raiders. This one’s being played in Mexico City, meaning that this will essentially be a “home” game for the Raiders. New England enters off a 41-16 road win in Denver, while Oakland comes in off a well timed bye week, after posting a come-from-behind, season-saving 27-24 home win over the Fish in Week 9. The Pats’ defense looked great against the impotent Denver passing attack last week, holding it to just 221 through the air. QB Tom Brady was his effecient self, going for 266 yards, three TD’s and no picks. Derek Carr and company won’t be going down without a fight today though. Carr has a 13:7 TD:INT, while RB Marshawn Lynch has 323 yards over eight games. But after a slow start to the year, Carr and the offense has looked a lot better of late. Back-to-back tough road games for the Patriots here. First in Mile High in Denver and then also in altitude in Mexico City. The Raiders have had an entire week off to prepare and re-focus. I’m expecting a competitive affair. Grab the points.

As bad as things have gone for the Broncos of late – five straight losses, all of them by double-digits – there is some hope. And that hope comes in the form of the Cincinnati Bengals, who arrive in Denver with their own set of issues. The Bengals are 1-4 on the road this season, and that one victory was against the Browns, who are more than halfway toward a winless season. So  . . . books have made this a tight spread in what is basically a playoff elimination game. There’s not a lot of compete left in either team, but the Broncos are playing at home and giving less than 3 in what very well could be a field goal game. So swallow hard and lay the points, figuring that Denver is less-bad than Cincinnati is at this point in time.

9* ANNIHILATOR on the Cleveland Browns. Jacksonville comes in off three straight wins and is tied for first in the tough AFC South. But with another tough one in Arizona next weekend, Jacksonville is going to run out of gas here in my opinion. The Browns have nothing to play for but pride, but the team clearly won’t be giving up until it manages its first victory of the year. The Browns continue to burn through QB’s like they’re going out of style, but whoever gets the start this week, there’s no question that this one sets up nicely for the home side from a situational stand point. The Browns looked competitive in last week’s 38-24 loss at Detroit and I look for the team to carry that momentum over here and keep it close enough to comfortably sneak in through the back door down the stretch.

8* BREAKFAST CLUB on the New York Giants. Kansas City could get caught “looking past” its lowly opponent today to its game next week at home to Buffalo. The Chiefs could also be “rusty” coming out of their bye week after getting smashed 28-17 by the Cowboys in Week 9. The Giants are enduring one of their worst seasons in recent memory, most recently coming off a 31-21 setback at San Francisco. On paper, clearly Kansas City is the better team. In alll three phases. It also has the better QB in Alex Smith, who has an unreal 18:1 TD:INT. New York is dealing with major injury issues on both sides of the ball and never had a chance this year. Kansas City has for the most part looked fantastic this season and it has the people on the field to make a deep playoff run. But as I mentioned off the top, I simply feel this is a bad spot for the Chiefs. Eli Manning won’t be rolling over, as he’ll try to score the upset in front of the home town crowd. In the end, I’m not calling for an outright victory, but I do think that the conditions are right for a much more competitive affair than most would believe. Grab the points.

10* MAIN EVENT on the Dallas Cowboys. It’s “do-or-die” for the Cowboys this weekend, who will almost assuredly be out of the running with a loss to division leader Philadelphia tonight. The Eagles are 8-1 and look primed for a playoff push, but I think the team has a letdown here. Chemistry is difficult to build and often a “bye” week can actually be detrimental to a team which had been firing on cylinders for weeks heading into its break. Dallas is banged up without many key pieces on both sides of the ball missing, but it still has a Top 10 QB in Dak Prescott and an elite offensive line. The run game has taken a hit with Ezekiel Elliot’s suspension, but the defense also remains a strength of the team. On paper, clearly Carson Wentz and company are the better team right now. But I’m not throwing in the towel yet on Prescott. With their season in the balance, I like the Cowboys to at the very least, keep this one competitive unitl the final moments. Grab the points.

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.
