Guaranteed Pick: Ben Burns

***BLOWOUT ALERT*** Burns' BIG EASY BEATDOWN!: Ben Burns' is off a 5-3 Thursday & is now a BLISTERING 39-19 the L11 days. Ben's "Big Easy" selections continue to LIVE UP TO THEIR NAME, most recently an 82-57 WINNER w/ a -8.5 point favorite, New Mexico State over LA Tech. This should be another ABSOLUTE LAUGHER. Enjoy!

Game: Vermont at North Carolina Mar 16 2012 4:10PM
Prediction: North Carolina
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: I'm playing on NORTH CAROLINA. The Tar Heels are obviously the much stronger team in this matchup. As is often the case, they also figure to be a "popular" play with the betting public. Sometimes, the popular side can be the right one though. I expect that to prove the case here. The Tar Heels barely got by NC State and then proceeded to lose to Florida State in the ACC Tournament. Let's not forget that they were 8-0 SU and 7-1 ATS in their previous eight games though and that five of those victories came by a minimum of 16 points. That loss to the Seminoles should have the Tar Heels seeing red here. The last time that they were off a loss, they followed it up with an 18-point win, as a -10 favorite, over Virginia. The previous time that they were off a loss, they followed it up with a 14-point victory, as a -6.5 point favorite, at Virginia Tech. The Tar Heels are 6-2 ATS the last eight times that they were listed as neutral court favorites in the -15.5 to -18 range and 3-1 ATS the last four times that they were favored by more than a dozen on a neutral floor. I expect them to improve on those stats in convincing fashion here. *9
