Ottawa vs. Winnipeg

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.

Diamondbacks vs Rangers

Both today's starters have a superb 0.82 ERA their past recent starts. However, Lynn has gone 22 innings over his past three, an average of better than seven innings per start. Young, on the other hand, has only gone half as long, just 11 innings over his two starts. While Lynn has been getting it done all season, those are the only two big league starts Young has made. So, he's working with a very small sample size. Also,note the Young really struggled in a Triple-A start last week. Lynn should be happy to see Arizona; he's a perfect 6-0 with a 2.80 ERA in 12 appearances (10 starts) against the Dbax. Consider Texas. 

WHITE HOT Ben Burns was 100% PERFECT once again yesterday, including an ABSOLUTE LAUGHER with his TOTAL OF THE WEEK. That gives him a SICK 10-1 RECORD over the past five days. While the short-term hot streak is sweet, Ben has DOMINATED right from Opening Day. Top-rated baseball is on a long-term run which has produced an INCREDIBLE $85K IN PROFIT. Today, Ben adds to his HUGE pile with his #1 GAME OF THE WEEK. You know what to do!

Braves vs Brewers

I'm playing on MILWAUKEE. While the Braves won yesterday's game, I'm confident that the Brewers will have the edge in this one. Woodruff had an outstanding first half. Indeed, he was 10-3 with a 3.67 ERA and 1.14 WHIP, striking out 126 in 108 innings. At home, he's a perfect 8-0 with a stingy 1.10 WHIP. Woodruff figures to get plenty of support as Wilson has an ugly 6.23 ERA and 1.71 WHIP for his career. In two road starts this season, Wilson has a terrible 9.39 ERA and 2.09 WHIP. Over the past 2+ seasons, the Brewers are 92-49 (+20.1) as home favorites of -110 or greater. With Woodruff getting the better of Wilson, expect them to improve on those stats this evening.

Giants vs Rockies

Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing on COLORADO. The Rockies got absolutely embarrassed in yesterday afternoon's opener. Then, they lost again in the nightcap. Overall, they were outscored by a 21-3 combined score on the day. That's going to have them thinking payback today. I expect them to get some. Admittedly, Lambert has had some trouble at Coors Field so far this season. However, he was respectable in his last start here - after giving up a pair of early HR's, he settled down and eventually allowed just four runs overall. That was against the Astros, too, one of the better hitting teams in the league. Now, he'll face the second lowest-scoring team in the NL. Lambert figures to get plenty of support. Not only are the Rockies itching for some payback, they're also facing a struggling pitching in Pomeranz. Last time out, Pomeranz gave up four runs in four innings. On the season, he's 2-9 with an ugly 6.42 ERA and 1.77 WHIP. Pomeranz has been particularly bad on the road. Indeed, he's 1-4 with an awful 9.76 ERA and 1.99 WHIP in seven starts away from SF. Opposing hitters are batting .336 against him on the road. Even factoring in last night's loss, the Rockies are still a healthy 17-8 the past 25 times that they were favored in the -125 to -175 range. Expect them to bounce back with a big win.

I'm playing on COLORADO. While I lost with the Rockies yesterday, I'm coming right back with them today. Pitching at Coors can be tough but Gray has cracked the code. In nine home appearances, eight starts, he's 4-1 with a 3.24 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. Over his last seven games overall, Gray is 4-1 with a 2.92 ERA. Anderson, a rookie, will be making his first career start at Coors. Again, thats not always so easy. Over his past three starts, Anderson has an ugly 6.13 ERA to go along with a 1.772 WHIP. His last road start came at PetCo and he allowed four earned runs, on eight hits, in just four innings. Gray has been excellent in both this season's starts against SF. He allowed 0 runs through six innings last time he faced them and one run through 6 2/3 innings in his previous start against them. No sweep here!

Mets vs Twins

Play Type: Premium

I'm playing on MINNESOTA. Off b2b losses, expect the Twins to respond with a big effort this afternoon. While the Mets are 13-18 (-5.4) in day games, the Twins are 23-15 (+3.1) in day games. Even with yesterday's loss, the Twins are still a healthy 17-8 the past 25 times that they were listed as home favorites of -150 or greater. Vargas has a 5.10 ERA on the road. Perez, on the other hand, has a 3.44 ERA at home. In Perez's lone start vs. the Mets, which came back in 2017, he allowed a mere three hits (0 walks) through eight complete innings, winning 5-1. The Twins have much better offensive numbers and they also have the edge in the bullpen. Minnesota rolls. 


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.
