Matchup Selection W/L

Orioles vs Phillies
+1½ -120 at Mirage
Play Type: Free

The Phillies are off an emotional loss on Sunday Night baseball. They'll be excited to step down in class for a series against the Orioles. They should be careful what they wish for though, as tonight's matchup is not an easy one. Means has been tough all season. He's allowed three or fewer earned runs in five straight starts. In 12 road games, he's got an excellent 2.48 ERA and 0.853 WHIP, averaging slightly over six innings. Note that Means has seen three of his last four starts result in 1-run losses. Also, the Phillies have seen three of their last five games decided by a single run. Additionally, Suarez's last three starts were all decided by a single run. In what could well be another close one, consider Baltimore on the run-line. (+1.5 runs)

Nationals vs Marlins
+1½ -171 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing MIAMI on the run-line (+1.5 runs). These same starters just faced each other, at Washington. Pitching in his home park, Fedde got the better of Luzardo. With this evening's rematch being played at Miami, I like Luzardo's chances of returning the favor. While the Marlins are just 24-50 on the road, they're a respectable 39-36 at home. That includes a 5-2 mark in Luzardo's home starts. (Overall, his teams are 7-4 in his "home" starts.) In fact, the Marlins are 3-0 in Luzardo's last three starts here, wins against the Reds, Phillies and Mets. He allowed three or fewer runs in each of those games. Yes, Fedde did also get the better of Luzardo in a game here last month. Still, the Nats are just 26-45 on the road and Fedde has been rocked in both road starts since. Yesterday's victory was the kind of win that can provide positive momentum for the Marlins. Expect AT LEAST another "run-line" cover.

Lions vs Packers
-11½ -107 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on GB. As you probably saw, or heard, the Packers got hammered by the Saints in their opener. The Lions showed a little more life; they still lost but rallied from a big deficit to earn a backdoor cover. We know that the Packers have been the much better team for many years. That's very unlikely to change this season. The big question is, how will they react to the Week 1 beating? History suggests that they'll "bounce back big." The Packers were money off an ATS loss last season. They're also a perfect 5-0 ATS the last five times that they had scored 15 or fewer points in their previous game. After scoring 10 points against Tampa last October, the Pack bounced back and scored 35 the next game, a 35-20 blowout win at Houston. Prior to that, after the 49'ers held them to eight points, the Pack responded with a 31-13 destruction of the Giants. A few weeks earlier, they had managed only 11 points against the Chargers. They immediately bounced back with a win and cover at Carolina. You get the idea. The "rebuilding" Lions are the perfect opponent to "bounce back" against. These teams met here exactly one year ago, to the day. The Packers doubled Detroit in that 9/20/20 game, a 42-21 rout. History repeats itself tonight.

Braves vs Diamondbacks
-168 at SC Consensus
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on ATLANTA. (action) The Braves got back on track yesterday and I expect them to carry the positive momentum into this evening's game. Home hasn't been kind to the Dbax recently. They've dropped their last five games here and are 1-7 their last eight here. The Braves have won their last three games here and five of their past six. Expect them to continue that success this evening.

Pirates vs Reds
-172 at linepros
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on CINCINNATI. (Action) While both teams lost yesterday, the Pirates' loss figures to be tougher to bounce back from. I say that because the Pirates rallied from a deficit to take the lead in the ninth inning. It looked like they might win but the Marlins managed to force extra innings. Then, the Pirates took another lead in the top of the 10th, only to see the Marlins win it in the bottom of the 9th. Again, those are the type of defeats which can be deflating. Note that they're now just 22-52 on the road. That makes the Red's 39-35 home record look pretty good, by comparison. Having recently dropped two of three at Pittsburgh, the Reds have payback on their minds. After facing the Dodgers, the Pirates aren't going to seem too intimidating. Look for the Reds to take this one.

Rangers vs Yankees
-244 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on NY. (Action) The Rangers are in the wrong place, at the wrong time. After getting pounded in b2b games, the Yankees are going to be in an angry mood. They've got advantages all over the place. Much more to play for. Homefield advantage. Much better lineup etc etc. Cortes should also give them an edge on the mound. The Yankees are 8-3 in his starts, 4-1 at home. Last time out, he struck out 11 through 6 1/3 inning, allowing just one run on three hits. His previous start saw him allow only two runs through six complete. The Rangers are just 11-39 their last 50 as road underdogs in the +175 to +250 range. I see this one going only one way. Yanks roll. 


Age: 45


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.
