    Ducks vs. Wild
      at  BETONLINE

    Both teams are hot right now but home ice figures to make the difference. While the Ducks are 10-14 away from Anaheim, the Wild are 15-5 here at Minnesota. The Ducks get outscored by a 2.9 to 2.5 average on the road. The Wild outscore opponents by a commanding 3.4 to 1.9 average margin here at Minnesota. Take a look at the home team.

    Since wrapping up a winning '16, Ben Burns is taking his game to new heights in '17. Off a 2-1 Friday, he's an EXTRAORDINARY 71-41 overall for the year. While he's also a PERFECT 5-0 his L5 on the ice, basketball has led the charge, as he's now an INSANE 41-18 w/ his '17 pro/college hoops, 24-6 & 17-12. Going back further finds him on an EPIC 309-218 ATS HOOPS HEATER the L12 months. HUGE WEEKEND on tap. You in?

    Devils vs Flyers
    -155 at 5Dimes
    Play Type: Premium

    I'm playing on PHILADELPHIA 8* PERS FAV. The Flyers are well-rested. The Devils played last night. While the Flyers are 14-9 at home, the Devils are 9-18 on the road. Philly outscores teams by a 3.3 to 3.0 margin here. NJ gets outscored by a 2.9 to 2.1 average score on the road. Throw in the fact that the Devils beat them 4-0 earlier at NJ and we should have a highly motivated Flyer squad. Look for home ice and fresher legs to make the difference.

    Suns vs Knicks
    -5½ -110 at GTBets
    Play Type: Top Premium

    I'm playing on NY 10* REVENGE GAME OF YEAR. While the Suns certainly have some capable players, the Knicks have the superior lineup. They're also much better at home than the Suns are on the road. The Knicks are 12-10 SU (14-8 ATS) here at MSG, the Suns are just 6-18 on the road. The Suns consistently give up a lot of points and they allow more than 113 ppg away from Phoenix.

    Speaking of bad defense, NY has been at its best, when coming off a sub-par defensive effort. Off a 113-110 loss against the Wizards last time out, note that the Knicks are a lucrative 17-8 ATS the past 25 times that they'd given up 105 or more points in their previous game.

    Looking at the game from a motivation standpoint and the Knicks should be the hungrier team. For starters, they're fighting for their playoff lives in the East, while the Suns are playing out the string in the West. If the season ended today, the Knicks would be out. They know they can't afford to squander a home game against the team with the worst record in the West.

    There's more to it than that though. Current NY coach Jeff Hornacek was fired by the Suns. The Knicks talked about winning his return to Phoenix for him last month but the Suns spoiled those plans by beating them, in OT. After that game, Hornacek commented: "I don't think we came out with the intensity that we needed to play the game."

    Expect Hornacek to have his team ready to go. In this case, the 'revenge' factor is real.

    Wyoming vs New Mexico
    New Mexico
    -7½ -110 at GTBets
    Play Type: Top Premium

    I'm playing on NEW MEXICO 10* CONF GAME OF YEAR. While they lost a couple of games here to begin the year, the Lobos have long been known for their homecourt advantage. Off back-to-back impressive road wins, I expect them to carry the positive momentum back to their home floor this evening.

    The Lobos have just accomplished something that no other team has done before, defeating San Diego State, Boise State and Colorado State, all on the road, all in the same season. That's not something thats done by fluke. This is a very capable group of Lobos. They're going to have a ton of confidence entering today's game and will be hungry to keep the roll going.

    The Cowboys are off a road win of their own. However, that was their first road victory in conference play and it came against lowly San Jose State. This will mark the third time that the played two straight true road games. In each of the previous two instances, they lost the second of those b2b game by double-digits.

    While the Lobos are averaging 82 ppg their last five, the Cowboys are allowing 82.4 ppg their last five.

    New Mexico coach Craig Neal knows how important this game is and knows his team needs to take care of business at home. He commented: "Unfortunate that we didn't take care of the two home games. But I think our guys are in a good place."

    I also believe that Neal's crew, which is now 14-7 ATS its last 21 in January, is "in a good place." I expect them to put up a big number here with the Cowboys unable to keep up. *top Mountain West play

    Georgia vs Texas A&M
    Texas A&M
    -3 -110 at betonline
    Play Type: Top Premium

    I'm playing on TEXAS A&M 8* BLOWOUT. The Aggies, who advanced to the Sweet 16 last year, have admittedly gotten off to a tough start this season. Thats partly due to a difficult schedule and partly due to losses suffered from last year's team. That said, I still believe that they're a little better than their record indicates and I expect them to be "ready to go" on Saturday afternoon. Off an upset loss last time out and knowing their next two games are on the road, the Aggies know that they can absolutely cannot afford another loss this afternoon.

    Prior to the Arkansas loss, a game they let get away, the Aggies won their previous home game (LSU) by 30 points. This is still a team which gave UCLA all it could handle earlier in the season.

    The Bulldogs have been tough at home but only mediocre on the road. Georgia coach Mark Fox noted this of the Aggies: "... I think they're way better than what their record shows. I do think they have a really good balance between inside and outside scoring ..."

    While the visiting team has taken the last couple of meetings, I look for homecourt to be the difference this afternoon.




    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, its 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.
