Florida Panthers vs. Philadelphia Flyers
Philadelphia Flyers
Play Type: Top Premium

I am playing on PHILADELPHIA as my 10* NHL Game of the Week.  The Flyers will be looking to wrap up a successful four game home stand and I expect them to do it in style with the win.

The visiting Florida Panthers come in off a 2-1 shootout win over Washington on Tuesday. The Panthers were able to outlast the Capitals in the longest shootout in NHL history (20 rounds).  A let down in the game immediately after would not be surprising.  

 The Panthers are in tough stretch of games here as they have had just one home game sandwiched between five road games. Florida has a big Saturday night game in Pittsburgh up next on the schedule and might get caught looking a little forward to that game oppose to  Flyers team that sits near the bottom of the Eastern conference standings.

Despite sitting in the middle of the Eastern Conference standings and in relatively good position to challenge for a playoff spot, the Panthers have a -9 goal differential on the season. Advanced stats will tell you Florida is due for a regression at some point. A tough set in the state of Pennsylvania could easily be the start of it.

Philadelphia is on a nice 3-1-2 stretch that saw blowout home wins over Carolina and New Jersey on this home stand.  It should be noted that I played on the Flyers in those two wins citing how important it was for the Flyers to make up some ground on this current home stand. I think that same thinking should go into this situation.

The Flyers are 8-5-2 at home this season. Philadelphia crushed the Panthers 4-1 the last time it hosted in this series. Note that Florida is just 8-11 in revenge games this season.

Play on PHILADELPHIA 10* Game of the week.

Tennessee Titans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Tennessee Titans
  at  5DIMES
Play Type: Premium

I am playing on TENNESSEE. This is the battle to determine the NFL’s worst team and I believe that distinction will belong to Jacksonville by the time this game is over.

Tennessee was just a few minutes from entering this week’s matchup off a win but they allowed a one-yard TD to the Jets with three minutes left last week and time ran out on the potential go-ahead drive. There were some positive signs from the Titans in that contest like the fact they threw for 253 yards and finally won the yardage battle in a game for the first time since playing the Bengals on Sept. 21.

The Jags, meanwhile, haven’t won the yardage battle in six games and part of that is their inability to protect the quarterback. The Jags are by far the worst in the league with 63 sacks allowed and they are coming off giving up eight sacks last week against the Ravens. As a result, starting QB Blake Bortles enters this game beaten up and is listed as questionable with a sprained ankle.

The Titans rank a respectable 13th in the league with 34 sacks this season and they pounded the Jaguars for six sacks in the last meeting - a key in the 16-14 victory for Tennessee.

Another reason I like the Titans here is these matchups with Jacksonville are typically close. Twenty-four of the 40 Titans-Jaguars meetings have been decided by seven points or fewer and the last three meetings have been decided by four or fewer. I’ll take the points in this one in what I'm expecting will be another close contest. 9*

Tennessee Titans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
40½ ov-110
Play Type: Top Premium

I am playing on the OVER. This game marks the lowest total of the season for either the Titans or the Jags and I think it’s a little too low for this contest.  

Oddsmakers know bettors will be looking to play the under after they combined for just 30 points for the first meeting in October and they can get away with setting this number lower than what it should be. As low as the number was, sharp money came in early on the under and moved it down a half-point on Tuesday.

I know these two offenses are the kind that the NFL dreads to showcase on weekday primetime television but I think these pitiful defenses will be porous enough  to allow these teams to topple the total on Thursday. Tennessee owns the second most generous scoring defense with 27.9 points against per game and Jacksonville owns the fourth-worst scoring defense with 26.9 points against per game.

Tennessee, in particular, has been extra giving lately with an average of 35 points against over its last four games. The Titans also gave up 88 points over their last two road games and they also scored 45 in combined in those games. Those two games jumped over the total by 22 and 23 points respectively and I believe the third straight Titans game will play over the number this week. 10* Main Event

NY Islanders vs. Detroit Red Wings
Detroit Red Wings
Play Type: Top Premium

I am playing on DETROIT.  The Red Wings enter this game on a four game losing streak but are playing well enough that it could easily be a four game winning streak.  The Islanders enter this game having lost back to back road games. New York has allowed 11 goals in those games.  The Islanders have struggled to kill off penalties in their last six games, allowing eight goals in 18 times short-handed, and now have one of the worst percentages in the NHL at 71.1.  The Red Wings have one of the league's top 10 power plays at 22.3 percent and have scored three times in their last seven opportunities.Detroit has a three game home losing streak versus the Islanders that they no doubt have been made aware of in the games leading up to this mark. Revenge will be a huge factor in this game.  The Red Wings were on an 8-2 mark until getting killed by shootout losses. Note the Red Wings have out shot their opponents in three of the four games during this slide.  Detroit is 5-1 in games on that takes place on Friday nights. Getting it here at a decent home price is sharp decision versus a sub par road team.   Detroit has one of the best home records in the NHL at 11-3-5 and this should be a spot where they add to it. Play on DETROIT 10* personal favorite

Toronto Raptors vs. Detroit Pistons
Detroit Pistons
Play Type: Top Premium

I am playing on DETROIT. Despite Detroit’s troubles this season, the team is showing some positive signs and I believe the Pistons are in a good spot to take the points Friday night. 
The Pistons have now lost 11 straight at home and crowds are getting more sparse every night. That just makes the Pistons more hungry to win a game for the home crowd and we’re seeing signs of fight from them. Andre Drummond scored 19 points and hauled in 24 rebounds in a monstrous effort against the Mavs two nights ago. Detroit failed to cover but was as close as being within five points with 2:35 left to play and narrowly missing covering for the third time in the team's last four games. 
I think the Pistons will rally around Drummond and continue to give teams a fight until they can get a win at the Palace. 
One thing I like about Detroit is I think we’ll start seeing better things from beyond the arc. They shot 39 percent from 3-point land Wednesday night, a huge improvement from their season average of 33 percent. 
The return of guard Jodie Meeks should help with that since his return four games ago and he’s slowly seeing more floor time each game. I think that will help Detroit spread the floor a little more and give Drummond some outside help as he continues to do some damage inside. 10* Best Bet


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.
