Won
$100
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on NORTHERN KENTUCKY (8* ANNIHILATR). The Norse won by 10 when they played at Youngstown State earlier. Playing on their home floor, I expect a much bigger margin of victory this evening. The Penguins allow a whopping 86.7 ppg on the road. Not very good, when considering that they only score 70.8 themselves. Meanwhile, Northern Kentucky outscores opposing teams by a commanding 81.5 to 60.1 margin here at home. The Norse are off a close loss to Wright State last time out. That was just their second loss since early January. Off their previous loss, they responded with a dominating 72-44 victory, as an 18-point favorite. The Norse have failed to cover three straight for the second time this season. After their first 3-game ATS skid, they responded with a 91-64 victory, as a 4.5 point favorite. They're 3-0 ATS their last three, after three straight ATS losses. Playing their final regular season home game, I expect them to bounce back in similar style, improving to 6-2 ATS their last eight, when listed as home favorites of greater than a dozen points.

$100
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing ANAHEIM on the puck-line (6*, +1.5 goals.) When the Ducks visited here earlier, the final score was 4-3 in favor of Vegas. The Knights also won both meetings at Anaheim. Playing with "triple-revenge," we should get a highly motivated effort from Anaheim here. Note that the Ducks are a solid 65-48 (+7.8) vs. the moneyline the past few seasons, when in the 'revenge' role. Off back-to-back road wins, the Ducks come in with some momentum. They're 29-19 (+10.7) their past 48, after playing their previous three on the road. I expect AT LEAST a "puck-line cover" this evening.

$100
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on NASHVILLE (6*). The Sens are in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Off back-to-back home losses, most recently a 3-1 setback vs. Detroit, the Predators are going to be in an angry mood. The fact that the Preds lost at Ottawa a couple of weeks ago should only add fuel to the fire. Note that they're 31-20 the past 2+ seasons, after scoring one goal or less in their previous game. While the Sens check in off a 6-3 victory, they're just 6-13 (-7) after scoring four or more goals. Even with the recent losses, the Preds are still 19-10 at home. Meanwhile, the Sens are still 9-20 on the road. Payback time.

Capitals vs Sabres

Won
$100
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing BUFFALO on the puck-line (6*, +1.5 goals) While they often don't win outright, the Sabres have been playing competitive hockey for weeks. A look at their last dozen games shows that NONE of them have resulted in a loss by more than two goals. They were 5-7 overall but all seven losses were "close." In fact, four of their past five losses have come by a single goal. That means that they'd be 7-1 their past eight games, if getting an extra +1.5 goals in each. Catching the Caps off a 7-1 loss and with a 3-5 mark in February overall, expect the Sabres to earn AT LEAST another puck-line cover this afternoon.

$110.0
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on WRIGHT STATE (3* VIOLATOR). These teams are at opposite ends of the Horizon Conference. The Raiders have enjoyed an excellent season and sit on top of the standings. They're 20-8 overall, 13-2 when listed as the home team. The Vikings, on the other hand, check in with a 8-21 record, a dismal 1-14 mark when listed as the road team. They figure to have trouble scoring this evening. While the Raiders allow a mere 59 points per game at home, the Vikings score just 63 ppg on the road. Normally, for a mismatch like this, the Vikings might hope the home team would overlook them. However, thats not happening here. Not only is this the Raiders' final home game of the reg. season, but they also lost at Cleveland State earlier this month, when listed as 9-point favorites. Arguably the low point of their season, the Raiders haven't forgotten. They're 10-6 ATS (11-5 SU) the past 16 times that they attempted to avenge an earlier road loss and I expect them to improve on those stats in "blowout fashion" here.

Canadiens vs Flyers
Canadiens
+1½ -200 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing MONTREAL on the puck-line. (6*, +1.5 goals.) Off five straight losses, the first of which came here at Philadelphia, the Canadiens figure to be a fairly hungry team. With six wins in their past seven, the Flyers could start to become a little complacent. A closer look at the Flyers' recent games shows that six of their last nine have been decided by a single goal. A 7-4 win last time out marked the first time in 16 games that the Flyers had won by more than two goals. Eight straight meetings between these teams have been decided by two goals or less, four of those decided by a single goal. I'm expecting AT LEAST another "puck-line cover" for the revenge-minded Canadiens.

Mississippi State vs Texas A&M
Texas A&M
-6½ -106 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on TEXAS A&M (10* GAME OF THE YEAR). The Bulldogs come in on an impressive roll at the betting window. Last time out, they knocked off instate rival Ole Miss by 17 points. That marked their seventh straight ATS victory. I expect that streak to get snapped on Tuesday. Note that this is the second time this season that the Bulldogs were coming off a game against Ole Miss. After their first game against the Rebels, the Bulldogs followed it up with a 17-point loss in their next game. That was their most lopsided defeat of the season. Recent ATS streak notwithstanding, the Bulldogs are still just 1-6 SU on the road, in 2018. They've also struggled the past 2+ seasons, as road favorites in this range. The Aggies are off back-to-back losses. However, both of those came on the road. In their most recent home game, they beat Kentucky by double-digits. Their previous home game, before that, was a 23-point win over South Carolina. In fact, they've won five straight at home and the last four of those victories all came by double-digits. The Aggies have thrived as home favorites in this range. While they lost at Miss. State last season, the Aggies had beaten the Bulldogs four straight times before that, including all three here at home. Expect homecourt to be the difference once again.

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.
