Match Up Pick Rating Result Profit Analysis
Rockies vs Yankees UNDER 10½ -110 Top Premium Lost -$110.0

I'm playing on Colorado/NY UNDER the total. While I won with the Yankees/Rockies 'over' the number yesterday, I'm expecting to see far better pitching this afternoon. The big difference is that I respect Marquez a lot more than yesterday's starter, Senzatela. True, Marquez wasn't very good last time out. In fact, he was terrible. However, that can happen sometimes at Coors. He's far better on the road, where he boasts a 3.30 ERA and a stingy 0.90 WHIP. Naturally, he's going to be highly motivated to bounce back with a much better performance. Paxton has been sharp since returning to the rotation. He's got a 2.50 ERA in July, striking out 21 in 18 innings. All three of his July starts have been quality. On the season, he's got a 3.22 ERA through nine home starts. With all due respect to the offenses, this number is too high. Go with the Under. 

#Nationals vs #Braves UNDER 11½ -113 Top Premium

I'm playing Washington/Atlanta UNDER the total. This is one of the higher totals on the Sunday board; I feel that it'll prove to be too high. Filling in for the injured Scherzer, Voth is going to be highly motivated, as he wants to prove worthy of a starting spot. Voth was extremely sharp last time out, allowing just one run, on only four hits, through six complete innings. He's going to be happy to see the Braves, too. When he faced them earlier this season, Voth allowed just two runs through six complete innings, striking out seven. He's got a 3.48 ERA and 1.26 WHIP on the road. Gausman was dealing with plantar fascitis earlier but has now recovered. He struck out 10 in seven innings, in a recent rehab start, throwing 104 pitches. So, he shouldn't have any limitations. Expect him to be better than he was, prior to the injury, the final leading to the final combined score staying beneath the generously high number. 


A's vs Twins Twins -140 Top Premium Won $100

I'm playing on MINNESOTA. Consistency counts. One might be surprised, given his mediocre overall numbers, but Pineda (6-5, 4.38 ERA) has been remarkably consistent. In fact, over his past dozen starts, he's allowed more than three earned runs only once. After shaking off an ugly April, which saw him compile a 7.20 ERA, he's just gotten better and better. He had a 4.50 ERA (0.97 WHIP) in May, a 3.58 ERA in June and so far through two July starts, he's got a 1.50 ERA. Off another excellent outing, he's now allowed just one earned run in five of his past six. Prior to a strong start against Seattle, Mengden had arguably been going the other way, as he had a 6.48 ERA in June, after a much better May. The Twins will be seeing him for the second time in three weeks; they scored five runs, on eight hits, in just five innings against him on July 2nd. Mengden was very fortunate to still win that game (8-6) but he's highly unlikely to get that kind of run support against red hot Pineda. While the Twins just got a look at Mengden, the A's havent seen Pineda yet this season, another factor working in his favor. Pineda's last two starts against Oakland came in 2016 and 2017, when he was with NY. His team won both of them. Expect more of the same Sunday afternoon.

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.
