Matchup Selection W/L
MLB  |  Jul 22, 2014
Miami Marlins vs. Atlanta Braves
Atlanta Braves
Play Type: Premium

I’m playing on ATLANTA. The Marlins scored the upset in yesterday’s opener, knocking off the Braves in extra innings. I expect Atlanta to return the favor this evening.

Admittedly, Minor has been a little inconsistent. He’s just 3-5 with a 4.86 ERA. He usually gives the Braves a chance to win, when pitching here at home though. Minor did have one bad start here back in May, his second home start of the season. He allowed six runs in that one. However, since then, he’s allowed 2, 3, 1, 3 and 4 earned runs in his last five home starts. In fact, he’s allowed four or fewer earned runs in 19 of his last 20 home starts. Minor figures to get some support here. 

Turner was a top prospect and the Marlins are still hopeful he might turn it around. That said, at 2-6 with a 6.22 ERA, whether in the starting rotation or out of the bullpen, he’s been a major disappointment. He’s got a 1.62 WHIP and opposing hitters are batting 3.26 against him. When pitching under the lights, his ERA rises to 7.15. Ugly. 

The Braves are 4-1 when facing Turner and they already beat up on him earlier this season. I like their chances of bouncing back. 7*

Texas Rangers vs. New York Yankees
New York Yankees
  at  5DIMES
Play Type: Premium

I’m playing on NEW YORK. The Rangers took yesterday’s opener. I like the Yankees to return the favor here. 

Admittedly, Whitley hasn’t been too good of late. The Yankees are still 7-4 when he starts though and the Rangers haven’t hit well vs. right-handers. Perhaps more importantly, he figures to get plenty of run support here. 

Nick Martinez is coming off the disabled list to make the start for the Rangers. That’s not necessarily good news for Texas fans though. He’s just 1-6 with a 5.10 ERA. That lone victory, the only one of his career, came back in May. Since then, he’s gone 0-5 with an 8.10 ERA. The last time he pitched in the majors was on July 1st. He gave up eight runs, three home runs, in five innings.

In a game that may feature the bullpens, note that NY relievers entered the series with a 3.81 ERA and 1.283 WHIP. Texas relievers entered the series with a 4.54 ERA and 1.38 WHIP, those numbers climbing to 4.89 and 1.486 on the road. 

The Yankees are 31-17 (+3.6) as home favorites in the -150 to -175 range. I expect them to improve on those stats this evening. 7*

Baltimore Orioles vs. Los Angeles Angels
Los Angeles Angels
  at  5DIMES
Play Type: Premium

I’m playing on the LA ANGELS. While the Orioles took yesterday’s opener, I believe the Angels are providing us with fair value this evening.

Santiago, who was solid in a pair of starts vs. Baltimore last season, is off an easy win in his last start. He recorded 8 K’s in six innings, while walking only one, the Angels winning 15-6. The Angels have now won his last three starts by a combined score of 32-13. Santiago had 19 Ks vs just four walks in those games. I believe he’s pitching better right now than his record indicates. (While he doesn’t always stick around into the late innings, he’s allowed four earned runs or less in 18 of his last 20 starts.)

Admittedly, Gonzalez has pitched well his last couple of starts. He’s still 2-3 with a 4.76 ERA and 1.478 WHIP on the road though, serving up nine home runs in eight road starts.

The Angels entered the series averaging 5.0 runs per game, 5.4 vs right-handers. The Royals entered the series averaging 4.3 runs per game. That number dips to 4.0 vs southpaw starters.

Yesterday notwithstanding, the Angels have been red hot in July. They haven’t lost two in a row all month and I don’t see it happening tonight either. 9* 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!

Handicapper Ben Burns has been analyzing sports and looking at odds nearly all of his life, but he is now going into his 10th year of offering his sports picks accessible to the general public. During that span he has escalated to the pinnacle of the handicapping world and is now one of the most flourishing and respectable names in the industry.

Burns has gathered national attention for his numerous season titles in all sports. His NFL betting tips rank him #1 at a few of the leading sports monitors and his figures in the sport will most likely never be beaten by another handicapper. While he does go through ups and downs like each different handicapper in the industry, you'll always see him saying it like it is. However, you'll see his numerous winning streaks outnumbering his few little losing streaks. If you take a look at his record over long term then we have no incertitude you will be struck by the cash that he racks up for clients.

If you bet totals, then you really should see which over/under plays he's making every night. Don't take this the wrong way though, since he easily beats the football betting lines, basketball betting lines, and baseball odds for sides as well. And, if you like watching your action then there isn't anybody better at picking out the hard victors on national televised contests.

Last year his football picks were very prosperous, and he ended his season in a 41-10 rout by taking the Bulldogs over Hawaii for his Game of the Year. If you want to lay lots of action on the Super Bowl, then his picks on the game are now 10-1 over his life history. However, Ben doesn't just concentrate on football, his baseball, college basketball, and pro basketball picks are all very moneymaking and win customers loads of money.

There are not a lot of services that can put the long hours in that Ben can and his work shows with the detailed writeups that he releases with his plays, and the exceedingly high win-rate that his picks achieve. If you want one of the hardest-working handicapping services in the industry who has a documented history of winning, give Ben a try and we know that you'll realize that you have found a winner!
