Matchup Selection W/L
MLB  |  Apr 22, 2014
Chicago White Sox vs. Detroit Tigers
Detroit Tigers
Play Type: Premium

I’m playing on DETROIT. The Tigers are 90-67 off a loss the past couple of seasons, 4-2 this year. Verlander has been been on the mound for two of those “W’s” in his last two starts, the Tigers winning when off a loss their previous game. With Verlander in top form, I expect them to again bounce back with a big win. 

Verlander has quietly been very good. He’s 2-1 with a 2.08 ERA (1.89 at home) in four starts, the Tigers winning three of them. For his career, Verlander is now a dominating 73-33 at home. 

While Sale would have normally gone in this spot, he’s headed to the disabled list instead. That means the Tigers are more expensive but it also should mean a big drop off in class for the Sox on the mound. 

Yesterday notwithstanding, the Tigers have owned the Sox here in recent seasons. I expect a big win here. 9* annihilator (action)

Houston Astros vs. Seattle Mariners
Seattle Mariners
Play Type: Premium

I’m playing on SEATTLE. The Mariners desperately need a win. After getting swept at Miami, they lost with their ace on the mound last night. Things weren’t supposed to be like that for them this year, as hopes in Seattle were high. This should be an excellent spot to right the ship.

Admittedly, Ramirez hasn’t pitched too well of late. Since dominating the Angels in his first start, he’s taken a step back. He’s determined to bounce back with a better effort though and was quoted as saying: “... I know I'm better than that.’’

I believe the Astros will be the perfect opponent for Ramirez to get back on track against. Houston is only hitting .196 as a team, averaging only 2.9 runs. Also, Ramirez beat the Astros the only time he started against them.

The Astros are also dismal against southpaws. A 1-5 mark this season (averaging 2.2 runs in those games) brings them to a terrible 29-66 (-24) vs. left-handed starters the past couple of seasons. Ramirez also figures to get some support here. 

McHugh has been called up from Triple-A and is expected to get the call for the Astros, replacing Feldman, who has been put on the DL. While we have to pay more to play on Seattle, that’s a big drop-off. Feldman was 2-1 with a 1.69 ERA. McHugh is 0-8 with an 8.94 ERA in 15 big league appearances - nine starts - for the Mets and Rockies since 2012.

Regardless of who starts for Houston, I look for the M’s to get back on track with a much-needed “W.” 10* personal favorite (Action)

San Jose Sharks vs. Los Angeles Kings
5 un-103
Play Type: Premium

I’m playing on SJ and LA to finish UNDER the total. Four games were played last night. All marked the third game of their series and that meant that each was played at a new venue. While the opening two games had nearly all been high-scoring, three of last night’s four Game 3’s were shutouts, 3-0, 2-0 and 1-0.

Tonight, the Sharks/Kings shift their series to LA for Game 3. After back-to-back humiliating and high-scoring losses, I expect the normally defensive-minded Kings to attempt to go back to what got them here.

Despite getting lit up in both games at SJ, the UNDER remains 11-2-2 after the Kings allowed four or more goals and a highly profitable 19-3-5 in that situation the past few seasons. During that time, the Kings have also still seen the UNDER go 18-7-5 when they were off a loss by two or more goals.

Games here at LA have averaged a mere 4.6 goals on the season. Opposing teams average only 23.3 shots and 2.0 goals per game here.

Remember, before this series started, the previous two 2014 meetings between these teams had scores of 1-0 and 2-1. So, there has been a recent history of low-scoring games.

With the high-scoring games at SJ, we’re getting better line value than we normally would be. I’m expecting a much different style of game. 10* best bet.

Matchup Selection W/L
NBA  |  Apr 22, 2014
Washington Wizards vs. Chicago Bulls
Chicago Bulls
Play Type: Premium

I’m playing on CHICAGO. After dropping Game 1, the Bulls can’t afford to lose this one. They’re battle-tested, they’ve been very tough at home again this season. They’ve also been excellent in the “revenge” role.

Even with the Game 1 loss, the Bulls are still 27-15 here at home. While the Bulls allow 89.9 points per game here, the Wizards allow 100.3 on the road.

The Bulls are also 25-15 ATS (26-14 SU) the last 40 times that they faced a team that beat them in the previous meeting and 26-17-1 ATS (32-12 SU) the last 44 times that they were off an upset loss. I expect them to bounce back and improve on those stats in convincing fashion here. 9* annihilator

Matchup Selection W/L
NBA  |  Apr 22, 2014
Atlanta Hawks vs. Indiana Pacers
Indiana Pacers
  at  SPBOOK
Play Type: Premium

I’m playing on INDIANA. After dropping the opener, the Pacers know they can’t afford another loss here. Not at home, where they’re normally much better than they are on the road. I expect them to respond with a huge effort.

Its true that the Pacers stumbled overall in the final weeks of the regular season. However, the majority of those struggles came on the road. 

Even with the Game 1 loss, the Pacers are still 35-7 here, outscoring teams by a 98.4 to 88.4 margin. Meanwhile, the Hawks are still just 15-28 on the road, giving up more than 104 points. 

The Pacers have been here before. They’re still 18-6 SU the last 24 times that they attempted to avenge an earlier loss and they’re 5-1 SU/ATS the last six times that they were trailing in a playoff series. (While we have to go back some years, the Hawks are just 4-11 SU and 5-10 ATS the last 15 times that they were leading in a playoff series.)

The Pacers have still won six of the last eight home meetings with the Hawks. The last four (and five of the six) of those wins all came by double-digits 

This is a well-coached, talented Pacer team which is loaded with depth. I believe they’ve worked too hard to get here to blow both games at home. I expect them to be all business from the opening tip, keeping the pedal to the metal the entire way. 10*

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!
