NBA Playoff bettors that subscribe to the “Zig Zag” theory are well aware of the Miami Heat and their SU (straight up) and ATS (against the spread) success recently.
The Zig Zag theory is simple enough: Wager on the team coming off a straight up loss. And, after getting blown out by the San Antonio Spurs in Game 3, the Heat won and covered in Game 4. The victory extends their streak to 12 straight times they've won and covered coming off a loss.
Oddsmakers opened Sunday's Game 5 as a pick 'em, but that line has been on the move all day. The Heat are now -1.5 road faves.
