Prior to the season, I was asked to suggest a pitcher who would exceed, or fall short of, his projected win total. I chose Stroman. Here's what I said at the time:

"Health had previously been a problem for Stroman. Last year, he stayed fairly healthy but managed only nine wins. That sub-par result has helped keep this season's projected win total quite low.  He enters spring training in great health and with a great attitude. Supported by what should be a strong Jays' offense, I like his chances of exceeding 10 wins. Consider going Over 10.5."

Stroman currently sits at 10 wins. For the season, he's 10-6 with a 3.00 ERA. At home, he could easily be better than 4-4, as he's got a 2.61 ERA here. I like his chances of picking up Win #11 here. Last time out, Stroman allowed four runs in eight innings. All four of those runs were unearned though; he only gave up four total hits in the eight innings. He's averaging better than seven innings his last three starts, recording a 2.49 ERA. 

Faria, on the other hand, is 0-2 with a poor 5.06 ERA his last three starts. During that 16 inning span, he's walked 10 batters. 

Stroman pitched very well (2 runs, 7 1/3 innings, 10 K's) against the Rays here back in the spring but came away with a no-decision. Expect him to do his thing once again, giving the Jays a solid shot at the victory. Consider Toronto.

I'm playing on CHICAGO (5* ANNIHILATOR). The Cubs are obviously pretty steep favorites here. However, I feel that the price could easily be much higher. While the Cubs had some trouble against yesterday's Red's starter (Castillo) they should have a much easier time against a "tired" Homer Bailey. The veteran Reds' starter, who has had three elbow surgeries since 2014, is 4-6 with an ugly 8.31 ERA and 2.035 WHIP on the season. After he went five innings last time out, Reds' manager Price referred to Bailey as being "fatigued." Lackey, on the other hand, seems to be gaining energy as the season goes on. He's made five starts since the All Star Break and is a perfect 5-0, posting a solid 3.42 ERA. Too many edges for the home team. Cubs win.

I'm playing on HOUSTON (10* GAME OF WEEK). I successfully backed the Astros yesterday, as they closed out their road trip with a big win at Arizona. Now, with facing those same Dbax in their homepark and with some positive momentum behind them, I expect the Astros to follow it up with another victory. 

The Dbax are 27-30 on the road, the Astros are 33-25 at home. The Astros pounded a southpaw (Banda) yesterday. However, they also average a whopping 5.7 runs per game and hit .287 against right-handers. The Dbax hit well at Arizona. On the road, however, they average 4.2 runs per game and hit a paltry .235. 

Both starters have relatively similar overall numbers. Walker is 6-6 with a 3.76 ERA and 1.273 WHIP. Morton is 9-5 with a 3.83 ERA and 1.247 WHIP. However, Morton was better last time out. Walker allowed four earned runs in five innings, serving up a pair of home runs, walking three while striking out just two. Morton had six K's against two walks, kept the ball in the park and allowed three earned runs in 5 2/3 innings. 

Walker is 0-2 his last two starts against Houston, allowing eight runs (6 earned) in just six combined innings. In that six inning span, he gave up five home runs! On the other hand, Morton is 2-0 and has limited Arizona to a mere three runs (0 HR's) in 19 combined innings, his last three starts against the Dbax. I'm going back to the well with Houston. *GOW

I'm playing on MIAMI 8* BREAKFAST CLUB. The Marlins were able to score yesterday, despite facing a previously red hot Madison Bumgarner. This afternoon's task figures to be considerably easier. Cain, who hasn't started since the end of July, hasn't won a game since the middle of May. During that span, he's made 14 appearances, 12 of them starts. His record is 0-8. For the season, he's 3-9 with a 5.22 ERA and 1.68 WHIP. That includes an 0-6 record to go along with a terrible 7.69 ERA and 1.99 WHIP on the road. Yikes. He's also 0-3 with a 6.63 ERA when pitching during the day. By comparison, Urena is 4-1 with a stellar 2.56 ERA (1.01 WHIP) when pitching during the day. Opposing batters are hitting a mere .174 against him in those games. The Marlins hit far better against right-handers than do the Giants. The Marlins bullpen has also been far superior at home than the Giants' bullpen has been on the road. All things considered, the price could easily be higher. Expect the Marlins to close the successful homestand with a victory.

SERVICE BIO

Age: 42

Background

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.

Achievements in Handicapping/Sports

Top Ranked NFL Handicapper

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.

10 Straight Super Bowl Winners

A big part of the reason for Ben's #1 NFL titles was his annual success in the playoffs. He fared particularly well with his Super Bowl selections. In fact, from 1999-2007, he released 10 Super Bowl picks (3 Sides, 7 totals) and went a perfect 10-0. (All selections independently documented.) In the middle of that 10-0 streak, in the 2002-2003 season, Ben won with both the Bucs and the "over" the year that they beat the Raiders. That win was particularly sweet as he predicted that Tampa would win the Super Bowl in a number of national magazines, prior to the season even starting.

Fantasy Legend

Ben got pretty seriously into the DFS world in 2014 and 2015. Recently, he was featured as "The High Roller" in the 2015 documentary, "Living the Fantasy." A regular fixture at Fan Duel and Draft Kings live championship events, Burns has taken down 6-figure scores in football, basketball AND baseball. While many of the other prominent DFS players come from a poker background, two decades as a sports handicapper provide a unique perspective.

Biggest Win of 2016

The year has just begun but Ben has already enjoyed some notable wins. His "Bowl Game of the Year," which happened to be a total (WVU/ASU "over") saw the teams combine for 85 points and 1196 total yards, all of them in regulation. Closing out the campaign with wins on Clemson AND the "over" in the championship game was also rewarding.  

Systems Used For Handicapping

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 particular 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.  

Betting Philosophy

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, than that's a play.

 

Rating and Titles of Plays

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.
