YESTERDAY'S PLAYS
Matchup Selection W/L
NCAA-B  |  Dec 17, 2017
Tenn Chattanooga vs Tennessee Tech
Tennessee Tech
-5 -110 at betonline
Won
$100
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on TENNESSEE TECH (10* PERS FAV). Chattanooga has alternated wins and losses for nearly a full month now. Off a win last time out, I expect the pattern to continue and for today's game to result in a loss. Note that the Mocs are just 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games following a SU victory. Tech comes in hungry, off three straight road losses. Keep in mind that the Golden Eagles had won six straight, prior to that skid. When listed as the home team, Tech is 4-0 and has outscored opponents by a commanding 92-63 margin. Expect them to bounce back and take care of business this afternoon, covering the relatively small number along the way.

Panthers vs Golden Knights
Panthers
+1½ -190 at 5Dimes
Lost
$190.0
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing FLORIDA on the puck-line. (8* PERS FAV) (+1.5 goals.) The Panthers have seen three straight games decided by a single goal. Meanwhile, the Knights are off b2b 1-goal games of their own. In fact, five of their past six were decided by only one goal. A closer look shows that Vegas has only won one game by more than a single goal in its past nine games. While I like the Panthers' chances of winning "outright," with another 1-goal game a real possibility, I'm laying the extra juice to get the extra +1.5 goals. 

Matchup Selection W/L

Cowboys vs Raiders
OVER 45½ -115 Lost
$115.0
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on Dallas/Oakland to finish OVER the total (9* MAIN EVENT). Both teams have been involved in some 'unders' recently. Those results have kept this O/U line a little lower than it easily could have been. I believe that it'll prove to be too low. As of this writing, the Cowboys are favored by a field goal, across the board. Thats noteworthy as the Raiders have seen the OVER go 4-1 the past five times that they were listed as home underdogs of three or fewer points. Off a loss against the Chiefs, note that the OVER is 5-2 the last seven, when the Raiders were off a divisional loss. The last time that they lost to KC, they gave up 34 points (34-14 loss) in their next game. The Cowboys' offense has found its groove recently; Dallas has scored 30 and 38 points its last two games. That was preceded by a stretch where they'd allowed a minimum of 27 points in three straight. When the smoke clears, look for this one to prove higher-scoring than many will be expecting.

Ravens vs Browns
Browns

Lost
$105.0
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on CLEVELAND (8* BREAKFAST CLUB). Both teams are off close, disappointing losses. Cleveland lost in OT vs. the Packers. Baltimore lost by a single points vs. Pittsburgh. I'm expecting another "close one" on Sunday afternoon. Last season's meeting here was decided by five points, a 25-20 win by the Ravens. That was enough for the Raven to cover last season, as the line was only -4. However, we're getting more points to work with this year. The previous year's game were was decided by six points. With the Ravens just 4-10-1 ATS their last 15 times against a sub-500 team, I'm grabbing all the points I can get with what should a very hungry Browns team.

Patriots vs Steelers
UNDER 54 -110 Won
$100
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on Pittsburgh/NE to finish UNDER the total (10* TOTAL OF WEEK). This is a highly anticipated matchup, featuring Tom Brady vs. Big Ben. Not surprisingly, its got the highest O/U line on the board. With all due respect to the offenses, I believe that it'll prove to be too high. In case you missed it, Brady didn't exactly look very good last game - a 27-20 loss vs. the Dolphins on MNF. Note that the UNDER is 3-0 on the season, when the Pats were off a divsional game. That includes a 23-7 win over the Falcons - another game which was expected to result in a 'shootout.' With the Pats listed as small road favorites, note that the Steelers have seen the UNDER go 11-3 the last 14 times that they were listed as underdogs. That includes a 2-0 'under' mark, when listed as home underdogs of three or fewer points. The last few meetings between these teams have produced 53, 43 and 49 combined points. None of those games had an O/U line this high; I feel this very high total is providing excellent value. 

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.
