in 1d

Some of you will recall that I successfully played against the Cougars, at Cal, last week, the start of a 14-4 Fri/Sat/Sun streak. Washington State was "riding high," entering that game. The 6-0 Cougs had a top-ten ranking and were coming off victories over USC and Oregon. They'd close as -16.5 point favorites.

Then, Friday The 13th got them. Something did, anyway. The Cougs didn't show up and the Bears came away with a convincing 37-3 victory. Thats right. They beat the closing line by 50 points. 

Off that rude awakening, I'm not sure that the Cougs are ready to be laying double-digits here. Colorado, which beat WSU by 14 points last season, is 9-4 ATS its last 13 true road games. Both this season's road games have been close, each decided by four or fewer points. Take a look at the visitors here.

I'm playing on BOSTON (8* ROAST). The Canucks got Ottawa in the first game back from a road trip in their last game. Playing with revenge, they upset the Sens, winning by a 3-0 margin. Don't expect it to happen again. The Canucks are still 23-43 their last 66 against Eastern Conf. opponents. They're also 5-19 the last 24 times they won their previous game by two or more goals. The Bruins too both meetings last season. They were favored by more than -200 for the game here at Boston and I feel they're offering very fair value here.

I'm playing on NY (8* ANNIHILATOR). The Rangers badly need a victory and this should be an excellent spot to get one. While they came up short (5-4) last time out, their fourth straight loss, the Rangers were having to face the defending champs. Even with that loss, they're still 7-1 the past eight times that they'd lost three or more in a row. Catching the Isles fresh of a trip out West, expect a huge effort from the Rangers as they bounce back and move to 33-21 the past 54 times they'd allowed four or more goals in their previous game.

Burns has been WHITE HOT for many weeks now and he's coming off a PERFECT SWEEP OF THE BOARD on Wednesday. He's got a HUGE Thursday lined up with top-rated plays in ALL five (NFL, CFB, NBA, MLB, NHL) sports. Don't get caught on the sidelines when he sweeps the board, again!

The Bulls have dominated the Raptors in recent years. That finally changed towards the end of last season, the Raptors breaking through with a 122-120 victory. The "monkey off their back" and now facing a considerably watered-down version of the Bulls, I expect the Raptors to deliver a "blowout victory" this evening. The Raptors were a lucrative 37-26-2 (43-22 SU) in the first half of the season, the past two years. Knowing they've got the improved 76ers on deck, followed by a difficult and lengthy West Coast road trip, expect the Raptors to improve on those stats, in convincing fashion. Consider Toronto.

I'm playing on LA (10* GAME OF MONTH). While I won with the Cubs yesterday, I'm going with Kershaw and the Dodgers tonight. I believe Kershaw, the best pitcher of this generation, has a date with destiny in the World Series. I don't expect him to be denied. I said the following of Kershaw when I won with the Dodgers on 10/14: "If he wants to be known as one of the all-time greats, he knows that he badly needs a World Series ring." While it remains to be seen if he'll get his ring, expect Kershaw to be at his very best here, understanding the significance of the moment and delivering for his team.

Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on NY/OKC to finish UNDER the total. With Carmelo Anthony joining Westbrook and co to take on his old team, many are going to be expecting to see a ton of points tonight. While there's obviously a lot of offensive firepower out there, I personally believe that the O/U line will prove to be too high. Over the past couple of seasons, the Knicks have seen the UNDER go 36-24 when facing teams from the Western Conference. During that stretch, the Thunder have seen the UNDER go 35-23-2 against teams from the East. Look for this one to also prove lower-scoring than many will be expecting, the Knicks having trouble scoring and the UNDER improving to 43-24-1 the past 68 times that OKC played in the first half of the season.

I'm playing on OTTAWA (10* PERS FAV). The Devils have gotten off to a great start but I expect them to come back down to earth here. The Sens have dominated this series recently, most recently winning by scores of 2-1, 3-0 and 3-1. True, the Sens are off a disappointing upset loss vs. Vancouver. However, that was their first game back from a West Coast trip - which can be a difficult spot - and they were facing a Canucks team which was playing with recent revenge, from an earlier loss at Vancouver. The Devils are just 12-21 the past 2+ seasons, after scoring four or more goals in their previous game. During the same stretch, the Sens were 31-19 after a loss by two or more goals. Expect them to bounce back and improve on those stats on Thursday.

I'm playing on OAKLAND (10* BEST BET). The Chiefs have had their way with the Raiders over the years. They've also been great on the road. Even off last week's loss, they still come in as the hotter team. Therefore, its not surprising that they're favored. That all said, I believe the short week is going to favor the home team here though and I expect a highly motivated effort from what should be a desperate Oakland team. This Raider team was expecting big things this season. Off to a 2-0 start, it appeared as if they'd live up to those expectations. However, since then, they've lost four straight. Carr's back now and has a game under his belt. Last week's loss was by only one, which would get the cover here. The Raiders are 4-2 ATS their last six off a division loss. I expect them to improve on those stats here.

I'm playing on HOUSTON. While Memphis has the higher rating, I believe Houston, 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS its last five on a Thursday, is favored for good reason. Memphis is just 2-8 ATS the past couple of seasons, off a conference win and 3-9 ATS off b2b SU victories. They're just 15-35 ATS their last 50 lined games, in that situation. After losing by four last season, the Cougars have payback on their minds. Expect them to come away with the victory, covering the small number along the way. 

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.
