Kelso's Advanced Sports Betting: The Straw that Broke the Camel's Back

That's an important metaphor for sports bettors to remember. Because, it's a phenomenon that trumps many handicapping strategies. It doesn't matter what a camel's full season stats are if a final straw just broke his back. It doesn't matter what trends and angles favor that camel in their current game situation. It doesn't matter what the camel's Power Ratings or Computer Ratings are either. Once a team breaks down, you need to be betting against them until they show signs that they're standing up and ready to compete again.

We just saw great examples of that on Thanksgiving Day. I swept my NFL plays in my annual Turkey Shoot largely by fading teams who established that they're not as good now as they were earlier this season.
