Best NBA bets for Heat games

Heat moneyline

A moneyline bet is a straightforward bet on which team will win the game. Here’s what a moneyline for a Heat-Pacers matchup might look like at Hard Rock Bet:

  • Indiana Pacers +120
  • Miami Heat -180

The team that’s favored is indicated with a minus sign (-) while the underdog is noted by a plus sign (+). In this tilt, the Heat are listed as the favorite at -180.

Those odds mean that to win $100 betting on the Heat, you would have to place a $180 wager. Meanwhile, a $100 bet on the Pacers (+120) would translate into a $120 win if the Pacers prevail. Note: You do not need to bet $100. It’s merely the unit used to explain your odds and payouts. If you bet $10, you’d get a similarly scaled payout.

Heat point spread

When you bet on the spread in a Heat game, you’re betting on the margin of victory. For example, a spread for a Heat-Celtics game could look like this:

  • Boston Celtics +5.5 (-110)
  • Miami Heat -5.5 (+110)

As usual, the favorite is indicated by the minus sign (-) and the underdog by the plus sign (+). The numbers in brackets are the odds you use to calculate how much you’d win based on your wager. Half of a point (0.5) is often used by oddsmakers to prevent ties (AKA pushes).

If you bet on the -5.5 favored Heat, they would need to win by six points or more to cover the spread. If you wanted to bet against the Heat and take the +5.5 underdog Celtics, Boston would need to lose by five or fewer points, or win the game, to cover the spread.

Heat totals bets

A total bet, also known as an over/under, is a bet on whether the number of points scored by both teams will be over or under the amount listed by the oddsmakers. Here’s an example of an over/under for a hypothetical Heat-Raptors game:

  • Over 211 (-110)
  • Under 211 (-110)

An over bet, for example, would require the Heat and the Raps to rack up buckets for a combined score of more than 211. As with the spread, the number in brackets is the odds used to calculate your winnings based on your initial bet.

In this scenario, that could mean the Heat beating the Raps 115-110 for a total of 215. An under is a bet that the two teams will fall short of scoring 211 points combined.

Heat props & futures

Betting on Heat props and futures is a fun way to take your sports gambling further. With prop betting, you bet on specific players and events to happen during a game that doesn’t directly affect the game’s outcome.

Some examples of the NBA prop bets you can make through a Florida sportsbook while watching the Heat are:

  • Who will be the Heat’s leading scorer in the first quarter?
  • Will Jimmy Butler score more than 30 points in the game?
  • How many three-pointers will Duncan Robinson hit during the game?

Futures are bets on an event that will take place in the future, like end-of-season honors and championship titles. Examples of Heat futures odds include:

Heat live betting odds

Live betting (or in-game wagering) allows you to bet on a Heat game while it’s happening in real time. Live betting is fast-paced and exciting, with Heat betting odds updated as the game progresses. For example, betting odds in a Heat game can be updated after every point scored or missed shot.

You have several betting options when it comes to live betting. You can make bets similar to the ones available before a game starts, including moneylines, spreads and totals. Or you can make partial game wagers, such as betting on the Heat to lead at a certain point in the game by a certain number of points.

There are also a variety of in-game prop bets you can consider. Most of them are based on the achievement of a specific statistic or milestone during the event, like the odds on Jimmy Butler scoring at least 25 points, or Tyler Herro hitting at least four three-pointers.
