Hot Handicapper Icon Hot Streaks: PERFECT 6-0 NBA RUN | 33-9 YTD SOCCER | 153-91 MLB (10-4 O/U)

FRIDAY: GOING FOR **7 STRAIGHT** NBA WINNERS!

NBA IS HEATING UP >> Don't look now but Ben Burns has WON SIX STRAIGHT NBA PLAYS

After a big March, its been a disappointing April. The month isn't over yet though! A profitable 5-1 Thursday (3-0 10*) gives Ben plenty of positive momentum. Don't be surprised if he "breaks out the broom" and delivers a "perfect sweep" Friday! 

SOCCER REMAINS RIDICULOUSLY HOT >> Off easy win, soccer is 22-6 YTD, 33-9 incl free plays. 

BASEBALL = MONEY >> Totals are 10-4 YTD and all MLB is 153-91 since last season.

Who is Ben Burns?

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.

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.

What sports does he bet on?

Most Ben Burns' bets are placed on the big 6 leagues (NFL, NCAAF, NBA, NCAAB, MLB and NHL), but will occasionally release picks on MMA, Soccer and CFL when he sees value.

What are his handicapping systems/methods?

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 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.

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, then that's a play.

What is his strategy for pick rating and bankroll management?

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.

Best of the Best - Equivalent to a Game of the Month or Game of the Year selection.

What should I expect for pick volume and release time?

Ben Burns has anywhere from 3-5 plays per day in various sports, increasing to 5-7 during football weekends.

Ben generally releases his plays the evening before to take advantage of early line value, with football picks posted mid-week for the upcoming weekend.
