Ottawa vs. Winnipeg
55 -110
  at  MIRAGE
in 44m

Off another PERFECT week on the gridiron, CFL is now an EPIC 14-2 the past 16. That includes a PERFECT 10-0 RECORD with his sides. Here, Burns offers an opinion on Friday's Winnipeg/Ottawa total:

While both these teams saw last week's game finish above the total, I feel that this number is a little too high. This season's earlier meeting had an O/U line of 53 and produced just 43 points. Even factoring in last week's game, the Redblacks have seen the 'under' go 8-2 their last 10 in the month of July. Also, during the same span, note that the 'under' is 3-1 when Winnipeg was a home favorite in the -7.5 to -14 range. Consider the Under.

Dodgers vs Phillies
+1½ -165 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing PHILADELPHIA on the run-line (+1.5 runs.) I expect the Phillies to win this one 'outright.' However, in a game where runs could well be at premium, getting an extra +1.5 runs could prove extremely valuable. Nola goes for the Phillies and he's currently in outstanding form. Last time out, he struck out nine over six innings, allowing a single run. That gives him a superb 0.87 ERA his past three starts. In fact, he's got a 0.76 ERA his past five. On the season, Nola has a 2.74 ERA in 12 home starts, much better numbers than he has on the road. Stripling, on the other hand, has a 5.79 ERA his past three starts. Expect AT LEAST a 'run-line cover' for the home team.

Toronto vs Calgary
OVER 52½ -103 Lost
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on Toronto/Calgary OVER the total. While the champs remain without Bo Levi Mitchell, his replacement (Arbuckle) has shown that he can absolutely get it done in this league. He'll have plenty of success against a Toronto team which has given up an average of more than 40 points per game. The Argos will also have success on offense as Calgary has given up 30 or more points in three of its four games. Calgary's two home games finished with 60 and 68 points. Toronto saw last week's road game at Winnipeg finish with 69. Last season's game here finished with 54. Look for the OVER to improve to 4-0 the past four times that the Argos played on a Thursday night.

Dodgers vs Phillies
UNDER 9½ -119 Lost
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on LA/Philadelphia UNDER the total. Nola goes for the Phillies and he's currently in outstanding form. Last time out, he struck out nine over six innings, allowing a single run. That gives him a superb 0.87 ERA his past three starts. In fact, he's got a 0.76 ERA his past five. On the season, Nola has a 2.74 ERA in 12 home starts, much better numbers than he has on the road. The UNDER is 3-0-1 his past four starts here. Stripling was also sharp last time out, delivering arguably his best start since taking Hill's spot in the rotation. He limited the Red Sox to a single run, striking out seven without walking a batter. On the season, he's got a solid 3.22 ERA through five road starts. Four of those fell below the number. Nola has allowed three or fewer earned runs in all three career starts against the Dodgers, just six runs in the three games total. Stripling has a 2.45 ERA during the afternoon this season. Look for this one to prove lower-scoring than most will be expecting. 


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.
