    YESTERDAY'S PLAYS
    Matchup Selection W/L
    NBA  |  Dec 16, 2017
    Thunder vs Knicks
    Knicks
    +2½ -110 at betonline
    Won
    $100
    Play Type: Premium

    I'm playing on NY (8* BEST BET). The Thunder are just 13-22 SU the past 35 times that they played the second of b2b games. Here, they'll do so after playing a very hard fought triple-OT game against the 76ers. Expect the rested Knicks, who have won three straight themselves, to take advantage, improving to 25-11 ATS the past 36 times that they were off a divisional game.

    Matchup Selection W/L

    Suns vs Wolves
    Wolves
    -11½ -102 at 5Dimes

    $102.0
    Play Type: Top Premium

    I'm playing on MINNESOTA (10* PERSONAL FAVORITE). I attended the 11/11 game, at Phoenix, between the T-Wolves and Suns. Behind a huge game from Booker, the Suns won that one. Since then, however, Booker has gotten hurt. The Wolves already got some payback with an 11-point win here at Minnesota. I expect an even more lopsided margin this evening. The Wolves, who are off a 23-point destruction of Sacramento, know that they'll play at Phoenix again on 12/23. A look at the rest of their December schedule reveals that this is their "easiest" game remaining in 2017 - at least, they wont be favored by this much again. With the Suns at just 6-18-1 ATS (3-22 SU) the past 25 times that they played with exactly two day's rest, look for the Wolves to take hold serve at home, doing so in convincing fashion.

    Matchup Selection W/L
    NCAA-B  |  Dec 16, 2017
    Utah vs BYU
    BYU
    -4 -110 at betonline
    Won
    $100
    Play Type: Top Premium

    I'm playing on BYU (10* GAME OF WEEK). The Utes have had the better of the Cougars in recent seasons. However, I expect the Cougars to take care of business this evening. Granted, the schedule hasn't been exactly tough. Still, the Cougars check in with a 5-game winning streak and full of confidence. The last four of those victories all came by greater than five points. While perfect at home, Utah has struggled on the road. The Utes' last road game resulted in a double-digit loss at Butler. Before that, they'd lost a neutral site game against UNLV by 27. Off a win over another instate rival (Utah St) look for the Utes to have a minor letdown here with the Cougs more than happy to take full advantage.

    Matchup Selection W/L
    NCAA-B  |  Dec 16, 2017
    Drake vs Iowa
    Iowa
    -6½ -110 at betonline
    Won
    $100
    Play Type: Premium

    I'm playing on IOWA (8* ANNIHILATOR). Drake left it all on the floor last time out. Listed as 20 point underdogs, it lost by only one at Minnesota. As impressive as that result may have been, those type of losses can really take a toll - games where a team was so close to pulling off a major upset, only to then fall short. Iowa, on the other hand, "got healthy" with a 31-point blowout last time out. Expect the Hawkeyes to carry that momentum into this afternoon's contest, en route to a big win and cover.

    Matchup Selection W/L
    NHL  |  Dec 16, 2017
    Penguins vs Coyotes
    Penguins
    -160 at betonline
    Won
    $100
    Play Type: Premium

    I'm playing on PITTSBURGH (8* ANNIHILATOR). Both teams enter on a losing streak. Lengthy losing streaks are nothing new for the Coyotes. However, they don't happen often to the Penguins. The only previous time that they were on a 3-game losing streak, the Pens answered with a 5-2 win over Tampa. Having lost three straight, expect the Pens to bounce back big once again.

    Matchup Selection W/L
    NCAA-B  |  Dec 16, 2017
    Butler vs Purdue
    Purdue
    -7½ -115 at betonline
    Won
    $100
    Play Type: Premium

    I'm playing on PURDUE (8* BREAKFAST CLUB). The Bulldogs have had their way with the Boilermakers the past couple of decades. Over the past 19 seasons, Butler is 5-0 against Purdue. I expect that to change in a big way in Saturday's Crossroads Classic. Purdue senior guard P.J. Thompson had this to say about today's game: "I think this is probably the biggest game of the season so far, because we have a chance to finish the non-conference strong." Butler averages 75.1 ppg (62.7 away from home) Purdue, on the other hand, averages 85.9 ppg. Purdue also allows slightly fewer points per game than does Butler. Additionally, Butler opponents have hit 43% of their fg's while Purdue opponents had hit just 38% of theirs. Lay the points and expect Purdue to pull away for a double-digit win.

    Matchup Selection W/L
    NHL  |  Dec 16, 2017
    Ducks vs Capitals
    Capitals
    -145 at betonline
    Won
    $100
    Play Type: Top Premium

    I'm playing on WASHINGTON (10* GAME OF WEEK). The Capitals could easily be a bigger favorite here. Washington comes in on a roll, having won two straight and six of its past seven. Note that the Caps scored a minimum of four goals in all six of those victories. Considering that they've scored three or fewer goals in 14 straight games, thats going to make it difficult for the Ducks to keep up. With the Ducks below .500 on the road and the Caps now 13-5 at home, I'm laying the reasonable price with the favorite.

    Matchup Selection W/L
    NCAA-F  |  Dec 16, 2017
    Oregon vs Boise State
    Boise State
    +7½ -110 at Bovada
    Won
    $100
    Play Type: Top Premium

    I'm playing on BOISE (10* MAIN EVENT). I won with the Ducks in their last game, a 69-10 thrashing of Oregon State in the "Civil War." So, I'm well aware that the Ducks enter the Bowls on a roll. Its important not to over-react from that blowout. First, Oregon State was terrible this season. Second, that was only game. Even factoring in the result, the Ducks have still lost four of their last seven. The Broncos eked out a win in their last game and have now won eight of their past nine. Boise did lose by three points at Washington State earlier in the season. However, that same Washington State team hammered the Ducks by a score of 33-10. Plus, the Broncos had to face the Cougars on the road while the Ducks got to host them. With the Broncos a profitable 26-14-1 ATS their last 41 as underdogs, I'm grabbing the points.

    Matchup Selection W/L
    NCAA-F  |  Dec 16, 2017
    North Texas vs Troy
    North Texas
    +7½ -135 at GTBets

    $135.0
    Play Type: Premium

    I'm playing on NORTH TEXAS (8* BREAKFAST CLUB). The Mean Green badly lost their last game and that has many taking them lightly. However, I expect them to play much better than most others seem to expect. Prior to the loss at Florida Atlantic, UNT had won five straight, covering four in a row. Keep in mind that UNT averages more than 35 ppg (35.9) to go along with 467 ypg. (Troy averages 30 ppg and 415.8 ypg.) While Troy enters on an impressive win streak, note that two of the Trojans' past four games have been decided by seven or fewer points. With three of UNT's last six games also decided by a touchdown or less, I'm grabbing the points

    Matchup Selection W/L
    NFL  |  Dec 16, 2017
    Chargers vs Chiefs
    OVER 46 -110 Lost
    $110.0
    Play Type: Top Premium

    I'm playing on LA/KC to finish OVER the total (10* TV MAIN EVENT). These teams played a fairly low-scoring game against each other back in September. However, last season's meeting here produced 60 combined points and I'm expecting another relatively high-scoring affair on Saturday evening. As of this writing, the Chargers are actually favored at most shops. Thats noteworthy as the OVER is 7-3-1 the last 11 times that KC was listed as an underdog. The Chargers have scored 54, 28, 19 and 30 points their past four games. Thats a combined 131, an average of nearly 33 ppg. The Chiefs have scored 31 and 26 their last two games. Expect both teams to find the end zone with relatively regularity once again, the final combined score finishing above the number.

    SERVICE BIO

    Age:42

    Background

    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.
