Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Indiana Pacers
Indiana Pacers
  at  BMAKER
Play Type: Top Premium

I’m playing on the Indiana Pacers as my 10* Best Bet Friday.

The Pacers play host the Cleveland Cavaliers, who are coming off a massive showdown with the Golden State Warriors Thursday. Cleveland is having to hop a plane and take the court for the second night of back-to-back outings after facing the Warriors' fast and furious pace.

There is tremendous value go to against Cleveland, which is ripe for a letdown. On top of that, Indiana is playing its best basketball of the season, picking up victories in seven of its last 10 games and boasting a 7-3 mark against the spread. A big-name opponent like the Cavs come to town only pumps up the Pacers home line even more, which we’ll gladly take advantage of.

Indiana has seen a spike in scoring during this hot streak, averaging 103 points per game this month - a massive uptick from the Pacers’ season scoring average of just 96.1 points per game. They’ve already knocked off Cleveland this month, serving LeBron & Co. a 103-99 defeat in Ohio on February 3.

On top of that offensive surge, Indiana remains one of the better defensive clubs in the NBA, giving up just under 98 points per game during that 10-game span. The Pacers are even stingier at home, allowing only 96.4 points on 43.4 percent shooting – a big reason why Indiana has covered in four straight home stands and is 5-1 ATS in its last six games versus the Cavaliers inside Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Cavaliers ripe for a letdown and the Pacers picking it up on both ends of the floor are why I’m playing on Indiana as my 10* Best Bet Friday.

Golden State Warriors vs. Toronto Raptors
Toronto Raptors
Play Type: Top Premium

I’m playing on the Toronto Raptors as my 10* Personal Favorite Friday.

Toronto welcomes the Golden State Warriors to the Air Canada Centre – a far cry from the sun and surf of the Bay Area. The Warriors travel overnight from Cleveland after a massive clash with the Cavaliers Thursday and are in a tough letdown spot against a very opportunistic Toronto club.

The Raptors went 1-3 on their latest road trip, losing the final three games of that trek to Dallas, Houston and New Orleans. Toronto is back home and can’t afford to extend this skid to four games. The Raptors are a tough matchup for the Warriors, running a similar guard-heavy offense that can put up points in a hurry. Toronto is averaging almost 105 points per game – fifth in the NBA.

The Raptors fell to Golden State when they visited the Bay Area in early January. The Warriors shot better than 53 percent from the field in that 126-105 beating, while Toronto coughed the ball up 17 times. Don’t expect a repeat with this non-conference series swinging north of the border. The Raptors boast the eight fewest turnovers at home (13.5) and limit opponents to just 96.9 points per home game – a drastic drop from the 104 points against per game on the road.

Toronto has been beaten up in the fourth quarter during this three-game skid and recognizes it must close out teams in order to snap this funk. The Raptors, who have allowed more than 29 points per fourth quarter in those three losses, will look to take advantage of a Golden State side feeling the effects of the road on the second half of back-to-back nights in the final frame.

The Warriors primed for a letdown and the Raptors hungry for a home win are why I’m playing on Toronto as my 10* Personal Favorite Friday.

Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning
Tampa Bay Lightning
  at  5DIMES
Play Type: Top Premium

I’m playing on the Tampa Bay Lightning as my 10* Personal Favorite Friday.

The Lightning open the doors of Amalie Arena to the Chicago Blackhawks Friday. Chicago is taking the ice for the second night of back-to-back contests and faces a frantic Tampa Bay attack, which averages 3.2 goals per game – tops in the NHL.

The Blackhawks snapped their three-game slide with two wins over the Florida Panthers in a home-and-home set, including a 3-0 victory Thursday night. Chicago was a mess before that short series, getting outscored 13-5 in those three defeats and needed a cupcake opponent to get back on track. Those two wins over the Panthers don’t hold much water and have only trimmed the odds on Tampa Bay, giving us even better value with the home team Friday.

The Bolts were 3-2 on their Western road trip, scoring a total of 19 goals during that span. Tampa Bay is back home, where it is a solid 22-6-0-1 and has had plenty of rest and preparation since losing 5-4 in Colorado last Sunday. The Lightning are 5-1 in their last six games played on three or more days of rest and will look to exploit a tired Blackhawks squad with that offense, especially since Chicago lost one of its top guns in Patrick Kane to a broken collarbone.

Tampa Bay has dominated Chicago in recent meetings. It owns a 5-1 record in their last six clashes overall and is 4-1 in its last five against the Blackhawks inside Amalie Arena.

The Lightning well rested and ready to pile on the points and the Blackhawks playing the second night of back-to-backs are why I’m playing on Tampa Bay as my 9* Personal Favorite Friday.

Valparaiso vs. Cleveland State
Cleveland State
Play Type: Premium

I’m playing on the Cleveland State Vikings as my 9* Personal Favorite Friday.

Cleveland State has a massive opportunity to better its postseason position and greatly improve its chances of winning the Horizon League and earning a spot in the NCAA field of 68. The Vikings can overtake first place overall in the conference with a victory over Valparaiso at home Friday night.

Cleveland State assumed its chances of winning the Horizon League and hosting the conference tournament were shattered when it dropped a 66-60 squeaker at Wisconsin-Milwaukee Sunday. However, the Crusaders did the Vikes a solid and fell to Detroit Wednesday, opening the door for Cleveland State to take over first place.

Not only do the Vikings have a huge motivating factor for this Friday night matchup – and a home-court edge – but Valparaiso must battle the disappointment of missing out on the regular season title just two short days ago. Cleveland State has had almost an entire week to prepare and comes into this contest as healthy as it’s been in a long while.

This is also an odd start time for Cleveland State, with tipoff coming at 10 p.m. ET due to TV purposes. That absolutely favors the home side, which will get a boost from a Friday night “Black Out” at the Wolstein Center. The Vikings are 3-0-1 in their last four meetings with the Crusaders and have gone 6-1-1 ATS in their last seven home stands against Valpo.

The Vikings’ opportunity to take first in the Horizon League and the Crusaders coming off a disappointing finish on short rest are why I’m playing on Cleveland State as my 9* Personal Favorite Friday.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Memphis Grizzlies
199 ov+100
Play Type: Top Premium

I’m playing on the Over in Los Angeles Clippers at Memphis Grizzlies as my 10* Blue Chip Friday.

These Western Conference rivals are very familiar with each other after playing just this past Monday, with the Clippers and Grizzlies staying well Under the total in a 90-87 Los Angeles victory.

The teams played a sloppy game offensively, shooting a combined 42.5 percent from the field and turning the ball over a collective 24 times. The teams also shot identical 33.3 percent clips from beyond the arc, which is odd for the Clippers – one of the best teams from distance in the NBA.

That previous meeting is keeping this total extra low Friday night, even though a repeat of that offensive snoozer is highly unlikely. The familiarity between these teams will open up looks on offense, and we’re expecting an easy Over winner.

The Clippers continue to put up huge numbers with the basketball. Los Angeles is averaging 110.3 points per game in its last six, with that low-scoring win over Memphis as the only hiccup. Without Blake Griffin in the lineup, the Clippers have gone to a short rotation and often like to roll out a four-guard set with Jamal Crawford coming off the bench for some offensive firepower.

Memphis is still among the top defensive teams in the NBA but has shown cracks in its armor in recent games. The Grizzlies allowed the Sacramento Kings and their new tempo, under head coach George Karl, to score 102 points in a loss to Sacramento Wednesday. They also gave up 105 points to the Oklahoma City Thunder earlier this month.

The Over has been the smart bet when these rivals collide, going 5-2-1 Over/Under in their last eight clashes overall. Los Angeles and Memphis have also topped the total in three of their previous four games in Memphis.

The market overreacting to their low-scoring last meeting and the Clippers pace breaking the Grizzlies defense are why I’m playing the Over in Los Angeles at Memphis as my 10* Blue Chip Friday.

San Antonio Spurs vs. Phoenix Suns
Phoenix Suns
Play Type: Top Premium

I’m playing on the Phoenix Suns as my 10* Personal Favorite Saturday.

Phoenix opens the doors of the US Airways Center to the defending NBA champion San Antonio Spurs Saturday. The Spurs traveled overnight from Sacramento where they took on the Kings and their up-tempo attack Friday night. The Suns can catch a road weary – and aging - San Antonio side in a tough spot, especially with the way the Spurs have stumbled on their annual “Rodeo Road Trip”.

Heading into Friday night, San Antonio had dropped the first four games of the Western Conference side of this extended nine-game road swing. The Spurs defense, which has limited foes to just 97.5 points per game (ninth in the NBA), has gone soft. They’ve allowed 107.5 points per game in those four losses and face a well-rested Suns squad coming off a statement win in the conference pecking order.

Phoenix handed Oklahoma City a 117-113 loss in overtime Thursday, getting massive efforts from Eric Bledsoe and Markieff Morris, who scored 28 and 29 points respectively against the Thunder. The Suns are ranked third in the league is scoring, putting up 106.3 points per night, and will overwhelm a tired San Antonio side playing the second of back-to-back nights.

The Suns' offense picking up steam and the Spurs' road woes are why I’m playing on Phoenix as my 10* Personal Favorite Saturday.

Ottawa Senators vs. San Jose Sharks
San Jose Sharks
Play Type: Premium

I’m playing on the San Jose Sharks as my 8* Personal Favorite Saturday.

The Sharks take on the Ottawa Senators, who are a long way from home Saturday. The Senators are currently on a five-game road trip, taking victories over the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings in their first two stops of this stretch.

San Jose can catch Ottawa in letdown mode after coming away with hard-fought wins in those road openers and is presenting solid value as the host team Saturday night. The Sharks haven’t been their sharpest at home, losing two straight inside the SAP Center to Los Angeles and Detroit – both one-goal games. We see the opportunity for San Jose to bounce back in a big way, especially at this price.

Both teams are hungry for a win, trying to squeak into their respective conference’s playoff picture. San Jose has been dealt some heartbreakers in recent weeks and isn’t as bad as its current record would indicate. Four of its last seven defeats have come by one goal. The Sharks have dominated this series with the Senators, winning seven of their last eight head-to-head clashes.

San Jose still possesses one of the most lethal power-play units in the NHL, ranked sixth overall with a 20.6 power-play percentage. The Sharks have a power-play sniper in Joe Pavelski, who has netted 16 goals with the man advantage. Ottawa has trouble staying out of the box, tallying 365 penalty minutes this season – fifth most in the NHL. The Sharks will have plenty of opportunities to break this game open on special teams if the Sens can’t avoid the whistles.

The Senators bound for a letdown and a hungry Sharks team ready to attack on the power play are why I’m playing on San Jose as my 8* Personal Favorite.

BYU vs. Gonzaga
Play Type: Top Premium

I’m playing on the BYU Cougars as my 10* Main Event Saturday.

Brigham Young is one squad no one wants to see make the tournament cut. The Cougars are a live bubble team but lack big-name wins on their NCAA resume. They can fill that gap with a victory over Gonzaga Saturday.

Brigham Young is a lofty road underdog against the projected tournament No. 1, seed but there is serious motivational value with BYU in this do-or-die situation. The Cougars have covered the spread in five straight games while Gonzaga is just 3-4 ATS in its last seven WCC games. The Bulldogs are no longer the mid-major darling and oddsmakers have treated them like an elite program, stacking a pile of points on the line for each of their outings.

The Cougars are the most explosive offensive team in the country, topping the land with 84.4 points per game on 46.8 percent shooting. Brigham Young has two superstars in Tyler Haws and Kyle Collinsworth, as well as boasts four players averaging more than 13 points per game on the year. They’re a tough team to key on, with nearly every starter presenting a scoring threat.

BYU runs one of the faster paces in the country, with 70.4 possessions per 40 minutes. The Bulldogs don’t have those same wheels and rely on their loaded frontcourt to do damage inside and open up the wings for open shooters. The Cougars look to put Gonzaga on its heels and beat those big men down the floor. Gonzaga’s lone loss on the season came against Arizona in overtime, with the Wildcats possessing similar scoring depth on their roster.

The Cougars desperate for a resume win and their explosive offense are why I’m playing on BYU as my 10* Main Event Saturday.

Boise State vs. San Diego State
San Diego State
Play Type: Top Premium

I’m playing on San Diego State as my 10* Personal Favorite Saturday.

The Aztecs play host to the Boise State Broncos at Viejas Arena Saturday, looking to snuff out Boise State’s NCAA tournament hopes. The Broncos are on the NCAA bubble – the same spot in which they sat last year around this time. Boise State crumbled under the pressure and missed out on the big dance last season and we expect a similar situation on the road against the Mountain West Conference’s top team.

San Diego State has jumped to the top of the conference with a red-hot four-game winning streak, which included wins over programs like Wyoming, Colorado State (two teams on its heels in the standings) and old rival New Mexico. In fact, the Aztecs most recent loss came at the hands of the Broncos, losing 61-46 in Boise in what was SDSU’s worst showing of the season. There is a heated revenge spot here for San Diego State, who won’t be taking BSU lightly.

The Broncos have never defeated SDSU on the road and face an Aztecs defense that doesn’t allow much room when in the role of host. San Diego State is giving up only 47.3 points per home game – lowest in the entire country – and limiting visitors to just 35.6 percent shooting.

The Broncos crumbling under the bubble and the Aztecs out for revenge at home are why I’m playing on San Diego State as my 10* Personal Favorite.

NC State vs. Boston College
Boston College
Play Type: Premium

I’m playing on the Boston College Eagles as my 9* Breakfast Club Saturday.

Boston College welcomes the North Carolina State Wolfpack to the Silvio O. Conte Forum Saturday, with NC State ripe for a letdown after a big win over North Carolina Tuesday. Since the 1994-95 season, NC State is just 1-14 SU in games following wins over either UNC or Duke.

The Wolfpack, one of many NCAA tournament bubble teams, knocked off the Tar Heels 58-46 in Chapel Hill and have won three in a row heading into the weekend. The betting markets are over-correcting to NC State’s success and not accounting for this letdown versus Boston College. The Eagles are giving tremendous value at home where they have covered in each of their last five games against the Wolfpack.

Boston College is among the bottom teams in the ACC but has kept things respectable in recent outings. The Eagles hung tough at Pitt, lost at Florida State by nine, and was edged by Miami in overtime. Boston College has a wild card in ACC leading scorer Olivier Hanlan, who is averaging more than 19 points per game.

Hanlan is on fire heading into this matchup, netting 30 or more points in four of his last six appearances. He dropped 29 points on the Wolfpack in Raleigh last March. The Eagles are much better offensively at home, recording 68.1 points per game – eight points more than on the road – and is shooting 45.4 percent from the field.

The Wolfpack ripe for a letdown and Hanlan’s ability to single-handedly take over games are why I’m playing on Boston College as my 9* Breakfast Club Saturday.


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!
