Matchup Selection W/L
NCAA-F  |  Oct 21, 2014
Arkansas State vs. UL-Lafayette
  at  BOVADA
Play Type: Premium

I’m playing on LA LAFAYETTE. The visiting team has won the last two in this series. However, I believe the home team is offering value as a small underdog here.

I won with the Rajin’ Cajuns last Tuesday, in a similar role. Listed as small underdogs vs. Texas State, they won convincingly. 

While he won at Arkansas State last year, Louisiana Coach Hudspeth hasn’t forgotten that it was the Red Wolves who handed him his first home loss, the last time that the teams played here. The Cajuns were negative five (5-0) in the turnover category in that one, also a Tuesday game, which didn’t help matters.

With a O/U line in the low/mid 50s, note that the Cajuns are 5-0 SU (4-1 ATS) the last five times that they played a home game where the O/U line ranged from 49.5 to 56. 

While Anderson has done a fine job at Arkansas State, this is his first year as coach. Asking his team to lay points here is asking a lot. I’ll grab all the points I can get but look for Hudspeth’s crew to score another “upset.”  9* main event 

Matchup Selection W/L
NHL  |  Oct 21, 2014
Carolina Hurricanes vs. Winnipeg Jets
Winnipeg Jets
  at  BMAKER
Play Type: Premium

I’m playing on WINNIPEG. Both these teams could really use a victory tonight. Playing on home ice, I expect the Jets to be the team which gets one. 

While the Hurricanes are already getting healthier, they’re dealing with a number of day-to-day injuries at the moment. Working players into the lineup that are returning and/or at less than 100% can be challenging. 

Note that the Canes are 2-6 (-5) the past couple of seasons when playing with three or more day’s rest. During that time, they’re also 7-14 after scoring one goal or less in their previous game. 

While they gave up four against Calgary last time out, the Jets are 17-13 (+6.3) the past 30 times that they gave up four or more goals in their previous game.

Winnipeg’s Paul Maurice used to coach Carolina, twice. I expect him to have his current team, who he read the riot act to, ready to play against his former one, their hard work leading to a much needed two points. 9* personal favorite

Matchup Selection W/L
MLB  |  Oct 21, 2014
San Francisco Giants vs. Kansas City Royals
Kansas City Royals
Play Type: Premium

I’m playing on the ROYALS’ RUN LINE (+1.5). You’ll need to reach into your pockets and hand over a little extra cash for this one, but I believe it will be well worth it. The Royals are as hot as any team in postseason history, 9-0 in their last nine games as an underdog and 11-1 in their previous 12 games against teams with winning records. The Royals are legit.

Game 1 starter James Shields has had an up-and-down showing in the playoffs, but was one of Kansas City’s most reliable starts over the course of the season. And the way the Royals’ bullpen has performed, he’ll probably only need to get through six innings in decent shape for Kansas City to have a great shot at the win. Between Kelvin Herrera, Wade Davis and Greg Holland, the Royals have mastered the art of the six-inning start; the trio has allowed three runs on 14 hits in 26 2/3 combined innings, with 30 strikeouts.

San Francisco starter Madison Bumgarner has been sensational so far in the postseason - posting a 1.42 ERA over 31 2/3 innings - but I have to wonder if the innings load he bears may come crashing down at some point. Bumgarner is now at 249 innings for the season, 25 more than he’s ever recorded. Add in the fact that the Royals were eighth in the majors in average against lefties (.266) and are at a league-best .289 in the playoffs, and it’s clear Bumgarner may have his hands full.

I like the Royals to get off to a great start in their first World Series in 29 years.

Ben Burns burst onto the sports betting scene in the 1990s, first making his selections available to the public in 1998. Now entering his tenth year, Ben has become one of the most successful and well-respected handicappers on the entire Internet.

From 1998 to 2006, Ben had his selections documented by the Big Guy Sports Monitor. During that time, he accumulated numerous seasonal titles in all the major sports. In fact, competing against a field of 150, Ben's NFL selections still rank as #1 of all-time there. With such a commanding lead over the field, it is highly unlikely that his all-time NFL record there will ever be matched.

Like all handicappers, Ben goes through both hot and cold streaks. However, whether winning or losing, he always "tells it like it is." Perhaps more importantly, as his many fans are quick to point out, Ben's winning weeks tend to greatly outnumber his losing ones. Note that Ben followed up an extremely strong 2006 with an even better campaign in 2007!

Ben is known as a "Totals Expert" and his over/under plays are highly sought after in all sports. In addition to his "total" success, Ben's "sides" are also known for their sizzling hot streaks. While he advocates playing all his selections equally, Ben's knack for nailing his "Big" plays is truly remarkable.

Ben capped off a highly successful college football season by winning his Bowl Game of the Year, a 41-10 wire-to-wire destruction on Georgia over Hawaii. Ben's NFL playoffs didn't go as well though and he lost his first ever Super Bowl selection, when the Patriots were upset by the Giants. Despite that rare setback, Ben's Super Bowl record remains at 10-1 for his career. Additionally, his NFL playoff picks remain a powerful 47-22 (68%) ATS the past six years. Ben isn't just a football expert though, as his hockey, baseball AND basketball picks are also highly respected.

Ben logs extremely long hours. His hard work clearly shows itself in his high quality writeups and extraordinary long-term records. If you're looking for an honest, hard-working handicapper with a documented history of success, give Ben Burns a try. We're sure that you'll be impressed!

Ben Burns has been one of the top names in sports handicapping ever since making his picks public in 1998.  Ben has built an impeccable reputation by being one of the most honest men in the business.  He is widely considered an expert in every sport for over/under picks, but has also shown significant success in picking winners against the spread.

What clients love most about following Ben Burns is his in-depth analysis.  Few, if any, handicappers match his consistent insight.  This allows you to learn how to handicap your own games as you learn from one of the sharpest minds in the industry.

Ben is a self-proclaimed contraritan, meaning he often times finds those teams that the square betting public is backing and plays against them.  This method has paid off in spades, particularly in the NFL.  Keep in mind that this is no a conscious effort, but that his game analysis often points to the winning side of the game that few others are able to see.

Ben Burns has been monitored all over the place, including Big Guy Sports, where he is the All-Time leader in the NFL.  He has collected numerous seasonal awards, but is most proud of turning a profit for his clients year-in and year-out.

Since joining our network, Ben has racked up seven top-10 finishes across the NFL, NBA, college football, and baseball.  He has finished in the top 10 in college football four times and is one of our best five college handicappers of all-time.  His talents also extend to the hardwood, where he has also recorded three top-10 finishes including a 2nd place overall finish in 2010.
