What’s the Zig-Zag Theory?

What’s the Zig-Zag Theory?

If you are an NBA lover, probably you already know the Zig-Zag Theory, something can be useful also in the Old Europe.

In order to explain this topic I take some information from superb websites, surely more serious and nice than our cigarafterten.

Let’s start with oddshark.com It is named the Zig-Zag Theory for its propensity of momentum shifting between the home and road teams based on how each performed in the previous game. The idea is that each game in a playoff series is affected by the result of the game that preceded it.

A lot websites have interesting articles about this topic. We suggest to read bodybets.com and minyaville.com. Anyway waht is interesting now for us is what we can ready in the oddshark.com article: if the road team wins Game 1, typically in an upset as an underdog, the home favorite is a very strong bet to rebound, historically winning around 75% of the time in that scenario.

The point is that this theory is good for NBA, but is it good for Euroleague too? We think so, even if we don’t have enough stats about Euroleague playoffs.

Betting: two interesting games for Saturday

Betting: two interesting games for Saturday

Yesterday we lost some money bacause of Darussafaka, today we hope to get a revenge thanks to Maccabi Tel Aviv.


Liga ACB
19:00 CB Canarias Tenerife – Real Madrid
Israeli League
19:30 Hapoel Gilboa – Maccabi Tel Aviv

Tenerife, Spain, EU
What a battle in Tenerife, with Liga ACB leader Tenerife hosting the great Real. As Liga ABC official website writes, for Canarias Tenerife this is one of the most important match in it’s history. Do we want to break Tenerife’s dreams? No we don’t!
Tenerife (+4.5) @ 1.87 stake 2/10


Gan Ner, Israel
Just a not for people who don’t follow Israeli League daily: last week Hapoel Gilboa lost at home by 14 with the weak maccabi Kiryat. What about Maccabi Tel Aviv?  The head coach Ainars Bagatskis knows he has one target to reach: the Israeli League title. This is the cigarafterten match of the day.
Maccabi Tel Aviv @ 1.25 stake 3/10

– Be careful !! –
We suggest to place only single bets and to place few bets. We are set to bet only on Hapoel Gilboa – Maccabi Tel Aviv, the match of the day, as we like to place maximum only 1 bet for each day.

Betting: we close February with +3.46%
