Kelso Advanced Sports Betting: Lessons From Buffalo Benching Taylor
Wednesday morning Las Vegas time, Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott announced that he was benching starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor in favor of backup quarterback Nathan Peterman. While that might seem harsh to many of you, given how great the Bills looked a few weeks ago when beating the Oakland Raiders 34-14, it's at least a sign that Buffalo has a sense of urgency about THIS season.
If you've been watching a lot of NFL lately, you've noted that many teams have lacked that urgency. Some teams even seem to be losing on purpose to position themselves for next year's draft (Cleveland, again) or to get their head coach fired (NY Giants). This past Monday night, neither Miami nor Carolina played any defense in the second half. Carolina's a playoff team! But, even good teams start pacing themselves if they have a big lead.
Today's lesson in my College of Advanced Sports Betting is about the importance of recognizing whether or not teams are playing with a sense of purpose. I think McDermott made that move because he saw his team give up last week when they fell behind New Orleans. They lost the second half 30-7, and allowed almost 300 rushing yards. That shouldn't happen AT HOME to a playoff contender. He graded his team an "F" and realized something had to be done.
Your homework is to go through the NFL team-by-team and give everybody a grade for whether or not they've been playing with a sense of urgency lately. This simple act by itself will help talk you out of those "value" underdogs that sharps supposedly get rich betting. Nobody's getting rich betting on Cleveland this year (again). Nobody's getting rich backing the Giants.

UCF, USF play for AAC title-game berth
Central Florida and South Florida have played eight times in what is billed as the "War on I-4" -- a reference to the interstate highway that links the schools' campuses in Orlando and Tampa, respectively -- but none had the impact or buildup that goes with this week's matchup.
