Burns enters Tuesday with a 10-2 record (all sports) over the past nine days. That includes an 8-1 mark at the ballpark. While short-term streaks are nice, its Ben's long-term stats which tell the whole story.

Matchup Selection W/L
MLB  |  Jul 21, 2014
Kansas City Royals vs. Chicago White Sox
Chicago White Sox
Play Type: Premium

I’m playing on CHICAGO. Both these teams lost Sunday. With Chris Sale on the mound, I believe the Sox will be the team which bounces back with a win. 

Note that after getting blanked yesterday, the Royals are now 0-3 their last three vs. southpaw starters, 1-6 their last seven. They haven’t hit nearly as well vs. left-handers and now they’ll be up against one of the best in the game. 

Sale will certainly be well-rested. I don’t expect it to have a negative effect though. Sale was among the very best pitchers in baseball in the first half. He’s 8-1 with a 2.08 ERA and 0.84 WHIP. In nine home starts, he’s 6-1 with a 1.97 ERA and 0.71 WHIP. Opposing batters have hit a paltry .167 against hime here. In 59.1 innings here, he’s recorded 75 K’s vs. just eight walks. Dominating. 

Needless to say, at 5-8 with a 4.56 ERA (4.72 on the road) Guthrie’s numbers don’t compare with Sale’s. 

In two July starts, Guthrie has a 15.75 ERA 3.00 WHIP, opposing hitters batting .475. With a 5.14 career ERA in July, its historically been his worth month. Meanwhile, Sale has a 1.08 ERA and 0.60 WHIP in July, opposing batters hitting .172. 

Sale has limited the Royals to one run or less four of the last five times he’s faced them. In this season’s lone start against them, he tossed eight shutout innings, en route to a 5-1 win. All things considered, I believe the price could easily be higher. 8* personal favorite 

Matchup Selection W/L

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Pittsburgh Pirates
Pittsburgh Pirates
Play Type: Top Premium

I’m playing on PITTSBURGH. The Pirates are playing well right now. With yesterday afternoon’s victory, they’ve won three straight and four of five. In fact, they’re now 10-2 their last 12 home games, 6-0 their last six here. I believe this one sets up nicely for another win.

While the Pirates played here yesterday afternoon, the Dodgers are off an evening (ESPN) game at St. Louis.

Volquez gets the call for the Pirates and he’s been in outstanding form of late. Indeed, he’s got a 0.90 ERA his last four starts, a span of 30 innings. Volquez allowed one earned run or less in all four or those games. The Pirates were 4-0, winning by a combined score of 25-6.

Ryu has been a bit inconsistent of late. Yes, he tossed a gem last time out. However, he got rocked in his previous start. While he limited them to two runs through six innings, the Pirates had 10 hits off Ryu when they faced him earlier this season, hitting .357. Ryu, who was opposed by Cumpton, got a ton of support in that 6/1 contest. I don’t expect him to be so fortunate here.

The Pirates took two of three from the Dodgers here last season, the lone loss coming against Kershaw. They’re 5-2 the last seven series meetings overall. 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.
