Canadiens vs Hurricanes
-150 at Bovada
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on CAROLINA. These teams split a pair of meetings, at Montreal. The Canes have home ice advantage now though which is important as the Canadiens aren't nearly as strong on the road. Both teams played yesterday, each earning a crucial victory. However, while the Habs played at Montreal, the Canes did so right here, at Raleigh. Sleeping in their own beds and not having to travel figures to help them this evening. Note that the Canadiens lost 8-2 (at Anaheim) the last time that they played the second of b2b games, falling to 5-8 in that situation. Expect home ice to prove the difference.

Oklahoma vs Virginia
-11 -105 at BMaker
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on VIRGINIA (8* VIOLATOR). After last season's first round debacle, the Cavs were under serious pressure, entering this year's tournament. That pressure seemed to get to them a little in the first half of their opener, as they found themselves trailing at the break. They responded with flying colors in the second half, however, pulling away for a convincing victory. That monkey off their back, I now expect them to dominate from the opening tip. The Sooners are 0-3 SU/ATS their last three against teams which allow 64 or fewer points per game and they won't have seen a defense this good. The Cavs allow less than 56 ppg (55.1) overall, a mere 51.8 ppg against non-conf. opponents. While the Sooners are just 4-11 SU their last 15, when playing with one or less day's rest in between games, the Cavs are 15-4 SU their last 19, when doing so. Expect them to improve on those stats here, picking up the cover along the way.

Clippers vs Knicks
+10 -105 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on NEW YORK. The Knicks have covered just once recently but I expect their best effort this afternoon. Note that they're 10-6 ATS after having failed to cover six or seven of their previous eight. They're also 7-3 ATS their last 10, off three straight double-digit losses. The Clippers, 0-2 ATS off a road win off three or less, are off a 2-point win at Cleveland. While that marked their fourth straight win, none of those came by greater than seven points. Note that they're just 5-10 ATS their last 15 as road favorites in the -6.5 to -12 range. The Knicks won outright by 22 when hosting the Clippers last season. Playing an early game in the Eastern Time Zone, look for them to give their West Coast based guests all they can handle once again.

Blue Jackets vs Canucks
Blue Jackets
-145 at Bovada
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on COLUMBUS. Winless (0-3) on their current 4-game road trip, the Blue Jackets come in as an absolutely desperate team. They've fallen out of playoff position and time is running out fast. Sunday, the well-rested Jackets catch the Canucks off a big division game vs. Calgary on Saturday. The Jackets, who lost 4-1 at Edmonton on Thursday, are 16-7 off a loss by two or more goals. Going back further finds them at 43-21 (+14.3) in that situation the past few seasons. During that span, the Jackets are also 38-21 (+9.2) when playing with 2-day's rest. Not that the Jackets need any extra motivation but they also haven't forgotten that the Canucks upset them, at Columbus already this season and swept them last season. Desperate for a win, schedule in their favor, expect the Jackets get some payback.

Iowa vs Tennessee
-8 -105 at sportsbook
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on TENNESSEE. The Vols got tested for awhile in their opener. However, they pulled away when it mattered. Having had their "wake-up call," I expect Schofield and co. to flex their muscles and to deliver a double-digit win vs. an over-matched Iowa team. The Hawkeyes managed an upset of Cincinnati in the opener. However, Tennessee is in an entirely different class. Even with the win over the Bearcats, Iowa is still just 19-27-3 ATS as an underdog, the past 2+ seasons. During the same span, the Vols are 2-0 as neutral court favorites in the -6.5 to -12 range. Having failed to cover in either of their last two games, note that the Vols are a lucrative 12-7 ATS the past 19 times that they were off b2b games, where they'd failed to cover the spread. The Vols are better on both sides of the ball; they score more and allow less. Expect a double-digit win.

Cal-Irvine vs Oregon
UNDER 123½ -110 Lost
Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing UC Urvine/Oregon UNDER the total. The Ducks are playing dominant defense. They held Wisconsin to 54 points in the opening round after limiting Washington to just 48 in the Pac-12 finals. They've allowed 61 or fewer points in eight of their past nine games, 54 or less in seven of those. The Anteaters have also been very stingy. They allowed 64 in their opener and have now allowed an average of just 59.75 ppg their last four. Note that the UNDER is 6-3 when they'd allowed 65 or less in b2b games. The UNDER is also 11-6 when the Anteaters had allowed 30 or fewer first half points, in b2g games. While this O/U line may initially seem a little low, keep in mind that the UNDER is 4-1 when the Ducks played a game with an O/U line in the 120s. Its also worth noting that the UNDER is 2-0 when the Ducks were listed as neutral court favorites in the -3.5 to -6 points. Going back further finds the UNDER at 9-4 the last 13 times that Oregon was in that situation. Expect those stats to improve, as defense takes center stage in this one. 


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.
