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.

This was a game that anyone involved with the NFL had circled weeks ago. The New England Patriots visiting the Denver Broncos in what might be the last time Tom Brady went head-to-head with Peyton Manning.

Instead, fate has intervened...setting up what might be the beginning of the Brock Osweiler era! Manning is out with an injury...in the second half of what had already been his worst season ever. Osweiler won at Chicago last week...which looked even better when the Bears beat the Packers Thanksgiving night. Should Osweiler and the Broncos beat Brady...Manning may never get back on the field in an orange uniform! A win for Osweiler over Brady would be the official beginning of the Osweiler era.
