Mariners vs. Padres

in 3h

In what could be a well-pitched affair, I like the youngster against the veteran. Paddack had a 2.10 ERA in the minors last season. This spring, he had a 1.76 ERA through five starts, the final one coming against the Mariners. Through four big league starts, Paddack has a stellar 2.25 ERA and 0.800 WHIP.  Hernandez, on the other hand, has a 4.91 ERA and 1.473 WHIP. While its true that he's always pitched well here, so far this season, on the road, King Felix has an ugly 7.71 ERA and 1.857 WHIP. Consider laying the wood with San Diego, listing Paddack. 

A tidy 4-1 Tuesday brings Ben Burns to a SICK 64-40 for the month of April. Known for his "big game prowess," Ben's top-rated MLB plays are on a long-term $69K profit heater. With $82K in profits, his top-rated basketball has been even better. A HUGE Wednesday card features SIX premium plays. Ben's shooting for a PERFECT 6-0 CARD. Do NOT miss it!

Twins vs Astros

Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on HOUSTON. Miley was sharp last time out, allowing two runs, on just four hits, through six complete innnings. In his lone home start, he allowed just four hits through 5 2/3 shutout innings. Pineda, on the other hand, got rocked in his last start, allowing six earned runs through just four innings. Miley has only faced the Twins once since 2017 and he won 5-1. While they were beaten yesterday, the Astros are still an outstanding 162-86 the past 2+ seasons against right-handed starters. During that span, they're also 70-40 when the O/U line was nine or 9.5. Expect them to bounce back and improve on those stats here.

White Sox vs Orioles
+1½ -132 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing BALTIMORE on the run-line (+1.5 runs) Wins have been hard to come by for the O's thus far. However, Cashner leads the club with three of them, as well as 25+ innings pitched. He had a tough start at Yankee Stadium in March. However, since that time he's allowed three or fewer earned runs in all four of his April starts, going 3-0 with a solid 3.38 ERA for the month. Nova, on the other hand, is 0-2 with a 6.23 ERA. He's allowed six or more earned runs in two of his last three starts. Note that each of Nova's last two starts against Baltimore were decided by a single run. Ditto for Cashner. He's faced Chicago twice the past two seasons. Scores were 3-4 and 3-2. Expect AT LEAST a "run-line" cover for the home team in this one.

Diamondbacks vs Pirates

I'm playing on PITTSBURGH. Arizona won yesterday but I expect the Pirates to even things up today. Williams has been excellent. Through four starts, he's got a 2.59 ERA. He's only allowed more than three earned runs once since last July. Williams has made two home starts vs. the Dbax, one in 2018 and one in 2017. Both were quality. He allowed a combined four earned runs in 12 innings. On the other hand, Weaver has allowed six earned runs in two starts at Pittsburgh, a span of just 9 1/3 innings. Yesterday notwithstanding, the Pirates have been excellent as home favorites. Expect them to bounce back here.

Magic vs Raptors
OVER 205½ -110 Won
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on Orlando/Toronto OVER the total. With the first four games of the series all falling below the number, the O/U lines keep getting lower and lower. I feel that this one will prove to be too low. The Magic offense, admittedly, hasn't been very good the past three games. This team doesn't quit though. Facing elimination, I expect them to give their all the entire way. Note that the OVER is 8-5 when the Magic were attempting to avenge a loss of 20 or more points. As for the Raptors, they've seen the OVER go 5-3 when off a road win of 20 or more points. Even better, the OVER is 8-2 when they were off b2b road wins. Additionally, the OVER is 17-8-1 when the Raptors were off three or more consecutive victories. Magic road games are still averaging 210.2 points. Meanwhile, Raptor home games are still averaging a whopping 221.6. All things considered, this number is too low. Go with the OVER.

Golden Knights vs Sharks
-116 at betonline
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on SAN JOSE. I've successfully played on the Sharks in all three of their wins in this series, while staying off of them in all three of their losses. They battled so hard to keep the series going and now get to play at home with everything on the line. At a pick'em price, I feel that they're offering outstanding value. While the Knights are 20-24 on the road, the Sharks are 27-17 at home. The Sharks dominated the last game here, jumping all over the Knights out of the gate and eventually winning 5-2.  The Sharks still haven't forgotten that it was the Knights who knocked them out of the playoffs last season. On Tuesday, they finally settle the score. 


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.
