$100
Play Type: Free

Yesterday, Ben Burns gave you an EASY complimentary winner with Brooklyn. (The underdog Nets won outright vs. the Raptors.) Today, Burns offers his opinion from the Colorado/Tampa hockey game:

Admittedly, the Avs have been playing well. Their 39 points is tied for the most in the Western Conference. However, they're up against the top team in the entire league today and I'm not sure that they're ready. Tampa checks in with 45 points and on a 5-game winning streak. While the Lightning tend to get fired up for other top teams, the same cannot necessarily be said for Colorado. Over the past couple of seasons, the Avs are 40-61 (-7.8) against teams with a winning record. During the same span, the Bolts were 63-45 (+8.8). The Avs would surely like to avenge an earlier 1-0 loss at Colorado. They're only 22-34 the past 56 times that they attempted to avenge a home loss though. With the Lightning at 38-15 (+6.7) the past couple of seasons, when playing a home game with an O/U line of six or greater, this line could easily be higher. Consider Tampa. 

***NOBODY IS HOTTER THAN BEN BURNS!*** A 33-9 overall mark includes an 11-1 record on the gridiron, 7-1 with NFL, 4-0 with college. Hockey & hoops are EVEN HOTTER! NBA,CBB, NHL on a combined 48-15 RUN. All top-rated plays are a **REMARKABLE 16-2** the L18, part of a *$106K PROFIT RAMPAGE!*

***GAME OF THE MONTH ALERT!*** Burns has released eight GOM plays since the start of November & he's a PERFECT 8-0. His December CBB GOM goes today!

I'm playing on FLORIDA (8* BREAKFAST CLUB). Needless to say, I respect the Spartans. In fact, I won with them in their last game, when they destroyed Iowa. That was at home, however, where the Spartans are perfect. (Plus, the Hawkeyes currently aren't that good.) This afternoon, they're at a tough road venue against a far more difficult opponent. Note that both the Spartans' losses have come on the road. In fact, they're only 7-12-1 ATS their last 20 road lined games. During the same span, the Gators have won 24 of 30 at home, including all three this season. Last time out, the stingy Gates beat WVU by double-digits. The Mountaineers managed a mere 56 points, on just 29% shooting. Before that, the Gators hammered North Florida by 32. They're 9-2 (SU) the past couple of seasons, when off b2b double-digit victories. Expect them to keep rolling with AT LEAST another cover here.

Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on TEXAS A&M. The Aggies have narrowly missed covering a few times recently. However, they're still feeling good about themselves, off b2b double-digit SU victories. The Eagles, on the other hand, are off a tough, deflating OT loss vs. Providence, their former Big East rival. The Eagles were down double-digits much of the first half of that one. To fight all the way back, only to ultimately lose, figures to take a toll. The Eagles really missed 6-11 Nik Popovic (concussion) last game and will suffer again if he's unavailable. Even if he was allowed to return, its not going to matter against a determined Aggie team. Note that the Eagles are 0-4 ATS the past four times that they were road underdogs of six or fewer points. Expect the Aggies to take care of business, moving to 6-2 ATS the last eight times that they were off three or more consecutive ATS losses.

Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on ATLANTA. The Nuggets absolutely destroyed the Hawks, at Denver, a few weeks ago, a 45-point beatdown. At the time, the Hawks were in the middle of a road trip and had just lost tight games against the Lebron Lakers and the defending champion Warriors. Off those b2b close losses and weary from being thousands of miles from home, they were vulnerable. This time, its the Hawks which are at home. This time, its the Nuggets who have been on the road for some time. The Nuggets played last night at Charlotte and are now playing their third game in four days, the final leg of a 5-game road trip. Dating back to the 11/15 game against the Hawks, the Nuggets have not played in the same arena in consecutive games. Thats a lot of travel; after this they finally get a 4-game home stretch. The Hawks haven't forgotten the 11/15 loss. Schedule and venue in their favor, expect them to improve to 11-4 ATS the last 15 times that they attempted to avenge a loss of 20 or more points.

I'm playing on FLORIDA (8* VIOLATOR). The Panthers have been alternating wins and losses for some time. On 11/24, they lost against Chicago. That was followed by a win against New Jersey and then by a loss against Anaheim. Next, came a victory against Buffalo, a loss against Tampa, a win against Boston. Most recently, they lost against Colorado. Off that setback and playing with 'double-revenge,' I expect the 'pattern' to continue and for the Panthers to bounce back with another victory. While the Rangers have won both this season's meetings, both of those were at MSG. Thats significant as NY is 10-4 at home but 3-8 on the road. The last meeting here was last March and the Panthers won 4-3. More of the same Saturday.

Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on Army/Navy OVER the total (8* BEST BET). These teams have had a recent history of low-scoring games, a longstanding run of 'unders.' I say that the streak comes to an end this year though. None of the recent games between these teams have had an O/U line this low. In fact, I looked all the way back to 1995 and none of them were this low. Series history notwithstanding, I feel that its too low. Navy's games have finished with 100, 43, 73, 61, 42, 41, 85, 66, 42, 59, 66 and 57 combined points. Notice that ALL TWELVE GAMES produced a minimum of 41 points. As for Army, nine of its 10 games produced at least 42 combined points. One difference between this year's game and other recent games is that Army is now the favorite, instead of Navy. The OVER is 14-6 the last 20 times that the Knights were laying points. Expect those stats to improve Saturday afternoon

Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on SF (10* GAME OF WEEK). The Broncos have been all over the place lately. After playing two of three on the road, they got a bye in early November. That was followed by a trip out West (LA) and then back to Denver. Last week, they played at Cincinnati. Now, here they are back on the West Coast. I expect it to catch up with them and feel that they're over-valued. The last time that Denver played the second of b2b road games, it lost by seven. While the defense improved the last couple of weeks, the Broncos are 0-4 ATS their last four, when off b2b games where they allowed 17 or fewer points. During the same span, the 49ers are 5-3 ATS, after failing to score more than 17 in b2b games. The last time that the 49ers were in that situation they won 34-3. Expect them to bounce back with AT LEAST another cover Sunday afternoon.

I'm playing on KC (8* BREAKFAST CLUB). While he was certainly a talented runner, the loss of Hunt isn't as big deal as many might believe. This offense is more than capable of putting up a big number without him. We saw that when they scored 40 on the road last week. They average 37 ppg on the season. I think that the Ravens, who average only 21 ppg on the road, are going to have some trouble keeping up. The Ravens have won three straight, the last two of those coming by double-digits. However, they're 0-2 ATS the past couple of seasons, when off b2b double-digit wins, 1-7 ATS their last eight off b2b covers and 1-6 ATS their last seven off a road win. KC rolls.

Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on WASHINGTON. As many of you know, I successfully played against these same Redskins on Monday night, while also cashing with the 'under' in that game. However, that was on the road against the defending Super Bowl champs, who were playing for their season. Now, the Skins are at home, facing a Giants team which is playing out the string. Thats a major difference. Yet, they're still getting a handful of points. Talk about no respect! While the Giants have actually won a few recently, including a win over the Bears last week, none of those wins came by more than four points. They're also just 1-5-1 ATS their last seven off a SU win as an underdog. While I like the Skins to rise to the occasion and win this one outright, I'm happy to 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.
