YESTERDAY'S PLAYS

Cardinals vs Cubs
UNDER 8½ -120 Lost
$120.0
Play Type: Top Premium

10* BLUE CHIP under Cards/Cubs. Both starters come in off strong performances. The Cards turn to Carlos Martinez (6-8, 3.36 ERA) who looked great in the All Star Game and then gave up two runs off five hits while striking out five over seven innings in an unfortunate no-decision against the Pirates on Sunday in his first start in the second half (owns a respectable 3.93 ERA in all road games to this point.) Jake Arrieta (9-7, 4.17) gave up two runs off four hits and three walks while striking out three over 6.2 innings in a win over Baltimore on Saturday. Arrieta is finally hitting his stride in 2017 as he’s held opponents to one or fewer earned runs in three of his last five starts. St. Louis has already seen the total go under the number in ten of 15 games in July, while Chicago has seen the total dip below the posted number in three of its last four after three or more consecutive wins. Play the under.

8* play on the San Francisco Giants. Everything points to a wire-to-wire rout for the home side. San Diego turns to Trevor Cahill (4-3, 3.14 ERA) who gave up one earned run over 6.2 innings in a victory over San Francisco on Sunday. Cahill was sharp in that one but had gone just 9.1 total innings over two starts earlier in July, which followed a stretch on the DL of over seven weeks. Cahill has been solid overall, but he’s been poor on the road by going 0-3 with a 5.01 ERA. San Fran counters with Jeff Samardzija (4-11, 4.86) who will be out to atone for a poor performance against these very Padres last Sunday, allowing seven earned runs over six innings of work. Samardzija has been serviceable this year, but has the pedigree and track record to turn things around. I like Samardzija to take advantage of this favorable matchup as Cahill’s road struggles continue. Giants roll.

Play Type: Premium

8* play on the Mariners (RUN-LINE). While I wouldn’t be shocked by an outright victory, I think the 1.5 runs of insurance at this price range is just too good to turn down. The Yanks turn to CC Sabathia (8-3, 3.54 ERA) who comes in off his best start of the year, going six shutout innings in Boston on Sunday. Sabathia has so far defied the odds and looked great overall (does own a pedestrian 4.09 ERA in all “night” games though.) The home side counters with Andrew Moore (1-1, 5.25) who comes in off an outing to forget against the White Sox on Sunday, giving up five runs over three innings. Fortunately for Moore his next start is at home where he’s gone a respectable 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA. The Yanks have done well against the league’s best, but have consistently “played down” to the level of their competition against the “lesser” teams, going just 17-21 (-11.8 units) against clubs with losing records. Conversely, the Mariners have been at their best against the best, going 27-24 (+6.2 units) against teams with winning records. In a game which I foresee being decided late or in extra frames, I’m grabbing the insurance.

6* play on the Red Sox. I’m expecting a rout from start to finish in this one. Boston turns to ace Chris Sale (11-4, 2.59 ERA) who comes in off a gem against New York on Saturday, going 7.2 scoreless and allowing just three hits while tying a season high with 13 K’s. To go along with his very respectable 2.75 ERA, Sale also owns a tiny 0.90 WHIP and elite 12.5 K/9 (Sale’s been sharp in all “night” contests as well with a 6-3, 2.96 ERA.) LA counters with Ricky Nolasco (4-10, 4.82) who comes in off a decent outing, giving up one run off two hits over seven innings in a no-decision against Tampa on Friday. Nolasco has looked better of late, but he’s still just 2-4 with a 4.42 ERA at home and only 4-7 with a 4.76 ERA in all “night” games. Boston is 28-15 (+8.6 units) this season after a loss, while LA is just 19-27 (-7.2 units) following a victory. I like the hard-hitting visiting side to bounce back off last night’s home loss to Toronto. Red Sox roll.

Winnipeg vs BC
OVER 56 -110 Won
$100
Play Type: Top Premium

10* TOTAL OF MONTH on over Blue Bombers/Lions. This is a pivotal, albeit early Western Conference matchup. The Blue Bombers are 2-1 and the Lions are 3-1. Winnipeg is led by QB Matt Nichols, who has 826 yards, five TD’s and three INT’s on the year. One other player on the Bombers’ offense to keep your eyes on is WR Westron Dressler, who has 19 catches for 309 yards and two TD’s. It’s yet to be seen who will be under center for BC, as Jon Jennings was injured in last week’s victory at Hamilton. Backup Travis Lulay was admirable in relief and now has 436 yards, three TD’s and two INT’s. WR Nic Moore has 18 receptions for 340 yards and one TD (RB Jeremiah Johnson has 265 yards and four TD’s already this year.) The over is 6-0 in Winnipeg’s last six against clubs with winning records, while the over is 5-1 in BC’s last six at home overall. With each team pushing the pace from start to finish, look for this one to fly over the number as it comes down the stretch.

Play Type: Free

1* FREE PLAY over Jays/Indians. Neither club can be happy with the performances of their respective starting pitchers this evening. Toronto turns to Marco Estrada (4-6, 5.33 ERA) who gave up four runs off five hits and four walks while striking out five over 3.2 innings in a fortunate no-decision against Detroit on Sunday. That makes it three straight starts that Estrada has failed to last past the fifth framesand he’s now allowed 23 walks over his last 24.1 innings of work (Estrada has been especially poor on the road as well with a 2-4, 5.63 ERA record.) Trevor Bauer (7-8, 5.59) has been even worse than his counterpart lately, most recently allowing four runs off three hits and three walks over 2/3’rds of an inning (additionally he owns a poor 4.75 ERA at home and a worse 5.66 ERA in all “night” games.) No need to over-think this one in my opinion, as recent form displayed by these starting pitchers suggests we’ll likely have a bit of a “slug-fest” on our hands. Consider the over.

6* BM BLOWOUT SPECIAL on Kansas City Royals. I had a play on KC yesterday and I think the home side will build off that solid performance. The White Sox turn to James Shields (2-2, 5.10 ERA) who gave up four runs off seven hits and three walks over six frames in a 4-2 loss to Seattle on Friday. Shields has now given up at least one home run in seven of his eight starts this year (note that he’s 0-0 with a 4.57 ERA on the road.) The Royals counter with Ian Kennedy (3-6, 4.32) who gave up two runs off five hits while walking one and striking out six over 6.2 innings in a no-decision against Texas on Sunday. Kennedy hasn’t been perfect this year, but he’s now unbeaten in seven games and I’m expecting the veteran to continue his recent form. Note as well that Chicago is is just 25-41 (-6.3 units) against right-handed starters this season, while KC is 35-31 (+8 units) in the same position. Royals roll.

10* PERSONAL FAVORITE on Cleveland Indians. Neither club can be happy with the performances of their respective starting pitchers this evening. Toronto turns to Marco Estrada (4-6, 5.33 ERA) who gave up four runs off five hits and four walks while striking out five over 3.2 innings in a fortunate no-decision against Detroit on Sunday. That makes it three straight starts that Estrada has failed to last past the fifth frame and he’s now allowed 23 walks over his last 24.1 innings of work (Estrada has been especially poor on the road as well with a 2-4, 5.63 ERA record.) Trevor Bauer (7-8, 5.59) can empathize with his counterpart, most recently he allowed four runs off three hits and three walks over 2/3’rds of an inning against the A’s (additionally he owns a pedestrian 4.75 ERA at home.) For arguments sake, let’s call these struggling starters a “wash.” Note though that TO is just 1-3 (-2.4 units) in its last four agaisnt right-handed starters, while Cleveland is 5-2 (+2.3 units) in the same position. I think this will prove to the difference, play on the Tribe.

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, 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.
