NCAA-B  |  Mar 28, 2015
Notre Dame vs. Kentucky
137 un-115
  at  BOVADA
Play Type: Top Premium

I am playing on the UNDER. Both of these teams have played under the total in two of their three tournament games so far and I feel oddsmakers have set this number too high heading into their Elite Eight matchup.

Most of the trends in relation to the total are pointing towards the under and just to name a few: five of Notre Dame's last seven games have played under; six of Kentucky's last nine have gone under; the under is 14-3 in UK's last 17 non-conference games; the under is 7-2 in Kentucky's last nine neutral site games; the last two meetings have played under.

Trends aside, both teams are playing pretty solid defense right now with the Irish holding foes to 65 points or fewer in six of their last nine while Kentucky hasn't allowed more than 56 points in this year's tournament.

The Wildcats are coming off a 78-39 win over West Virginia, which was the fewest number of points allowed in a Sweet 16 matchup since 1975. That game fell under the closing total by 19.5 points.  

"They were what I thought they were," West Virginia coach Bob Huggins told reporters after the game. "That's the best defensive team I think that I've ever coached against."

I think the public may be overlooking the defense here a little bit because of the talent level and hot shooting of these two teams. But I believe Notre Dame knows it simply can't expect to line up and out-talent Kentucky. I think we'll see a bit of a slower pace and some tough defense in this game and I believe the books have set this number far too high as a result. 10* O/U Total Of The Year

Golden State Warriors vs. Milwaukee Bucks
Milwaukee Bucks
Play Type: Top Premium

I am playing on MILWAUKEE. You may not have guessed it but the Bucks actually love playing Golden State when it comes to covering the spread. Milwaukee is 7-1-1 against the number in the last nine meetings including covering the last two times these teams met despite the fact the Warriors won. 
Now the Bucks are getting points on home court where they typically perform far better than on the road this season. Milwaukee enters this game after two solid wins against Miami (as an underdog) and the Pacers and I think the Bucks will at least keep it very close against the Warriors. 
Everyone knows Golden State is on fire these days but the Warriors enter this game after playing at Memphis just last night. I think we might see a bit of fatigue in their legs in this back-to-back spot in what is the third game of a four-game, cross-country road trip. 
The Bucks are playing great basketball right now and getting key contributions from players who are stepping up as they hold onto sixth place in the Eastern playoff standings. Ersan Ilyasova scored a career-high 34 points on Thursday and center Zaza Pachulia piled up 14 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists in a big night against Miami two games ago. 
Golden State has first place in the West pretty much wrapped up so I'm not sure how much the Warriors have left to play for as they cruise toward the start of the playoffs. I think a more desperate Milwaukee squad that's getting points at home will find a way to cover or win outright Saturday night. 10* Best Bet

Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Detroit Red Wings
Detroit Red Wings
  at  5DIMES
Play Type: Top Premium

I am playing on DETROIT. Franchise pride and playoff contention are on the line for the Red Wings Saturday night and I believe they'll pull out a big effort and beat the Lightning. 
The Lightning have won all three meetings against Detroit this season and the veteran Red Wings aren't going to take being swept in a season series lightly. After allowing 11 goals in their past two games, I think we'll see a new level of intensity in the defensive end for Detroit and they are starting Petr Mrazek in goal ahead of Jimmy Howard. 
Mrazek has an impressive .936 save percentage in his three outings this month and to put that in perspective, Montreal's Carey Price leads the NHL with a .937 save percentage this season. 
As Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg said after losing to the Sharks the other night, this isn't just on the goalies. The Wings have been losing battles at both ends of the rink and I think it will help having Niklas Kronwall back in the lineup for his second game after being out due to an injury. He's the Wings' anchor on defense and is a physical presence for Detroit. 
The power play could be big for Detroit here also as they chase down a playoff spot, just five points ahead of the chasers in the Atlantic Division. 
The Red Wings own the best PP in the NHL and they've tallied a power play marker in 14 of their last 17 games so I think that will be a big key to a win for Detroit. Tampa Bay has given up a power play goal in four of its last six games heading into this one. 10* Personal Favorite


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.
