    Nationals vs Giants
    -140 at betonline
    Play Type: Top Premium

    I'm playing on SF. The Giants have taken six of the last 10 home meetings with the Nats and I expect them to have an edge in this evening's opener. Cueto is having an outstanding season. He's 13-2 with a 2.53 ERA, the Giants winning 17 of his 20 starts. At home, he's 5-1 with a 2.43 ERA and 0.938 WHIP. He averages nearly eight innings per start here (7.8) and he's only given up two home runs (and only 8 walks) in more than 70 home innings. He allowed a single unearned run through six innings last time out, striking out nine Yankees in the process. The Nats know all about that. In Cueto's last two starts against them (2014 and 2015) he allowed ZERO runs through 16 complete innings, allowing only six combined hits while striking out 20. Cueto got the "W" in both games, winning 5-0 and 1-0, outpitcher Scherzer and Gonzalez. Roark has been very solid all season, just not in Cueto's class. Also, he wasn't sharp last time out, allowing five runs in five innings, while also serving up a pair of long-balls. Given Cueto's numbers, this line could easily be higher. 10*

    Diamondbacks vs Brewers
    -138 at 5Dimes
    Play Type: Premium

    I'm playing on MILWAUKEE. After taking the first two games of this series, the Brewers got hammered (8-1) yesterday. I expect them to bounce right back in this afternoon's finale. Davies is quietly having a very solid season. He's now 7-4 with a 3.64 ERA. At home, he's 5-3 (team is 7-4) in 11 starts, recording a 3.56 ERA and 1.081 WHIP. Davies is at his best right now, too. Over his last three starts, he's 2-0 with a superb 1.35 ERA and 0.95 WHIP. In that 20 inning stretch, he didn't allow any home runs. Those games came against the Cubs and at Cincy and Washington. So, they were against either a tough team, and/or at a tough venue. Ray is also in decent current form. With 10 K's in his last start, one can see he's capable of dominating hitters. However, he also allowed six runs (3 earned) in five innings. For the season, he's 5-9 with a 4.45 ERA and 1.509 WHIP. While he's been a little better on the road, he's still 2-5 with a 1.491 WHIP, averaging less than 5 1/2 innings per start with the Dbax going just 2-8. The Brewers are well below .500 vs. right-handers, averaging just 3.5 runs per game. However, they're a healthy 18-14 (+7.5) vs. southpaws, averaging five runs per game. It all adds up to a win for the home team. 8*

    Rockies vs Mets

    I'm playing on NY. The Mets have dominanted the Rockies here in recent seasons. With DeGrom on the mound, they should have a major advantage agains this afternoon. DeGrom, 2-0 with a 1.27 ERA and 0.75 WHIP vs. the Rockies, has a stellar 2.55 ERA in nine home starts, the Mets winning six of them. Anderson, on the other hand, is 0-2 on the road. The Mets are a commanding 82-53 (26.8) in day games the past few seasons and I look for them to improve on those stats here. 7*

    Mariners vs Cubs
    -165 at betonline
    Play Type: Premium

    I'm playing on CHICAGO. After their sensational start to the season, the Cubs were fairly mediocre for awhile. Off back-to-back victories, they're starting to gain some positive momentum again though and appear poised to go on another roll. I expect them to have the advantage this afternoon. Lester struggled at Milwaukee last time out. However, he dominated in his most recent home start, allowing one run on only four hits, through 7 2/3 innings. For the season, he's 5-2 (Cubs are 7-2) with a stellar 2.18 ERA and 0.968 WHIP in nine starts at Wrigley. He'll face a Seattle team which has struggled against southpaws, averaging only 3.9 rpg, far less than their average vs. right-handed pitchers. Admittedly, Iwakuma is having a strong season. He'll be facing a potent Chicago lineup here though, one which is averaging 5.1 rpg, 5.3 rpg in day games. While the M's are 14-20 (-7.7) vs. southpaws, the Cubs are 30-17 in day games. I expect them to improve to 14-6 (+4.4) their last 20 when listed as home favorites in the -150 to -175 range. 8*




    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.
