What can we learn from Venezia – Sassari playoff series?

As I told you in a previous article this will be a balanced series with both teams having a chance to win, regardless of the home-court advantage.

I will analyze below the battle between Umana Venezia and Dinamo Sassari from the point of view of betting:

In the first two games played at Venezia, Sassari came with a lot of energy dominating the first part and then step by step losing ground and in the end, Venezia stole the victory.

Then in the next 2 games, we have 2 clear wins of Dinamo Sassari who gave no chance to the visitors.

And then again it comes game 5 which decided the winner of the entire series which will reach the semifinals of the Italian championship. Sassari led again by double-digit and it seemed that this time it will be an easy win. Entering the last stanza, Dinamo Sassari had 16 points advantage and I am sure that nobody trusted Venezia with that huge comeback. But that’s nothing like this in basketball. There’s always could be a comeback. That’s why huge odds have to be hit.

I am sure that many bettors (not only In this game between Venezia – Sassari) are placing live their money on the team that it seems will win the game. Simply because that team contradicting the bookies’ estimation took a significant advantage by 10 or more points.

The odd is low, let’s say 1.23 but you say to yourself that’s “easy money” to be made here. The final result proved that you had to bet on Sassari (if you trusted them) but pre-game at odd 2.40, not when they had a huge lead and the odds went down. That was the moment of making the cash-out or to bet on Venezia to come back. Always take huge odds!
