Phillies vs. Cubs

$91,000 IN HOOPS ~ $78,000 IN MLB ~ 26-9 L35 TOP PLAYS!

I won with the Cubs yesterday. Off that momentum-building victory, I like them again this evening. Hamels, formerly with the Phillies, will be making his first start against Philadelphia. In fact, the Phillies are the only team that he's never faced before. Needless to say, he's going to be highly motivated to deliver a big performance. In four home starts, he's got a 2.73 ERA and 0.987 WHIP. Irivin has pitched well thus far. However, its a limited sample size; he's only thrown 13 big league innings. The Phillies are just 3-7 their last 10 as road underdogs in the +100 to +150 range. Going back further finds them at a dismal 50-90 (-29.2!) their last 140 in that role. Consider Hamels and the Cubs. 

WHITE HOT Ben Burns was 3-1 Tuesday. Including his winner on the Raptors, he's got an AMAZING 26-9 RECORD his L35 top-rated bets. Overall, he's an AWESOME 139-82 since April 1st! While his short-term stats are INCREDIBLE, insiders know that it's Ben's long-term success with top-rated bets which really separates him from the crowd.

Sharks vs Blues
+1½ -191 at pinnacle
Play Type: Free

The Sharks have been here before in these playoffs and aren't going to panic. Off an embarrassing Game 5 loss, now facing elimination, I expect their very best effort tonight. They're 8-2 (+5.2) the past 10 times that they'd scored one goal or less in their previous game. Both previous games here at St. Louis were decided by a single goal; I wouldn't be surprised if this one gets decided in OT. Consider laying the wood and grabbing the extra +1.5 goals. 

WHITE HOT Ben Burns was 2-1 Monday, 2-0 with top-rated plays. That gives him an AMAZING 25-8 RECORD with his L33 top-rated bets. Overall, he's an AWESOME 136-81 since April 1st!

I'm playing on CHICAGO. The Phillies won yesterday's game by a 5-4 score but I expect the Cubs to bounce back and even the series today. While the Phillies are 4-6 (-3.9) against southpaws, the Cubs are 22-14 (+4.2) vs. right-handers. Quintana is 3-1 with an excellent 2.36 ERA and 1.05 WHIP here at Wrigley. The last time that he faced the Phillies he allowed just three hits and one run through six complete innings. Eflin didn't look too good last time out; he gave up seven hits and four earned runs through just five innings. Thats a very similar stat-line to his last start against the Cubs, a game Eflin lost 7-1. He allowed four runs (3 earned) and seven hits through five innings in that one, too. The Cubs are a dominant 35-7 (+26.9) the past 42 times that they attempted to avenge a 1-run loss. Expect them to improve on those stats here.

Red Sox vs Blue Jays
Blue Jays
+1½ -114 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing TORONTO on the run-line. I like the Jays to win this one outright. However, the poor run support which Stroman has been receiving, combined with the very reasonable price on the extra +1.5 runs AND the "close game history" of today's starters, has me on the run-line. Stroman has a 2.95 ERA on the season. At home, that number dips to 2.60. Five of his last eight starts against Boston have been decided by a single run. Meanwhile, Rodriguez has seen eight of his last 10 starts against Toronto decided by a single run. The Jays were embarrassed 12-2 yesterday. They're 7-4 vs. the money-line the last 11 times that they'd given up 12 or more runs. Expect them to bounce back with AT LEAST a 'run-line cover' here.

Diamondbacks vs Padres

Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on ARIZONA. While I won with the Padres in yesterday's opener, I'm coming right back with the Diamondbacks this evening. Greinke is having a great season and is also in outstanding current form. The former Cy Young Award winner has a 1.74 ERA and 0.726 WHIP his last three starts. His team is 4-0 his last four against the Padres, Greinke delivering a quality start in each of those. While Greinke has a 0.726 WHIP his last three, Strahm has a 1.385 WHIP his last three. Not terrible but still nearly twice as many baserunners allowed as Greinke. Strahm has pitched better on the road too, as he has a 4.24 ERA here at Petco. His lone home start against Arizona resulted in a 10-3 loss, Strahm giving up five earned runs in just 2 2/3 innings. Yesterday's loss notwithstanding, the Dbax have been excellent as small road underdogs. Look for them to bounce back, improving to 23-14 (+8.5) the past 2+ seasons, when off three or more consecutive losses.

Bucks vs Raptors
+2½ -110 at Mirage
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on TORONTO. I won with the Raptors in Game 3 and I'm coming right back with them in Game 4. In Game 3, the Raptors were favored. Now, we're getting them as underdogs. While I do expect an outright win, that's definitely some added value. Yes, I'm aware that Milwaukee was great off a loss in the regular season. However, this is a whole different situation. The Bucks had their chance to knock the Raptors out. If they'd won on Sunday and went up 3-0, the series was finished. They probably would have go on to sweep and that would have likely ended the Kawai ere in Toronto. That didn't happen though and the resilient Raptors now have life and momentum. They did an amazing job on Antetokounmpo, as he was 5-16 before fouling out. Losing Lowry, who fouled out in the fourth, was a huge blow for the Raptors, particularly on a night where guys like Green and Van Fleet were really struggling with their shot. To survive that and win without Lowry is going to be really good for this team. I expect Kawai and Lowry to get more help from their secondary players in this one, leading to another Raptors win.

Red Sox vs Blue Jays
Red Sox

Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on BOSTON. The Jays had a favorable matchup yesterday and they took advantage of it. While I backed them in that game, this is a much tougher matchup. Porcello has rounded into form. He's 3-1 with a 2.97 ERA his last six starts. Last time out, he held Houston to two runs through seven complete innings. Sanchez hasn't fared nearly as well of late. He left his last start early, due to a blister on his middle finger. He'd already given up a couple of runs though. In his previous start, he gave up five runs, on nine hits. He's got a 5.62 ERA his last three. Thats been less than a week for the blister to heal and the Red Sox are a tough team. The Jays are 1-5 the last six times that Sanchez started against them, 0-3 the last three. While the Jays' bats erupted yesterday, the Red Sox are still the much better hitting team. Boston scores the 6th most runs per game in basball. Toronto ranks #26. In fact, the Jays rank near the bottom of the league in nearly all offensive categories. Look for the Sox to bounce back, improving to 20-11 (+6.1) the past 2+ seasons, after allowing 9 or more runs in their previous game.

A's vs Indians
UNDER 9½ -110 Won
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on Cleveland/Oakland UNDER the total. I'm expecting a well-pitched affair in this afternoon's series finale between the Indians and A's. Montas has been outstanding for the A's. He's 5-2 with a 2.67 ERA and 1.13 WHIP on the season. He limited the Indians to two runs through six complete when he saw them, strking out seven while walking one. Last time out, Montas held the Tigers to two runs through 8 2/3 innings, striking out 10 without walking a single batter. Note that he's got a dominant 1.50 ERA and 0.67 WHIP in two daytime starts. Rodriquez also has strong daytime numbers, as he's got a 2.77 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in his daytime starts. Neither team has been great at the plate. The A's rank 15th in runs scored, the Indians rank 23rd. The A's rank 19th in hits, the Indians rank 27th. They rank 22nd and 25th respectively, in terms of batting average. All things considered, this number is generously high. 


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.
