Online sports betting is not yet active in Florida. This page will be updated with the latest promos, news and odds once Florida sportsbooks launch.
With a winning culture led by former head coach & current team president Pat Riley and the famous South Beach nightlife, the Heat are a marquee destination for both NBA free agents and road teams.
Add legal online sports betting, which Florida will soon have, and there’s no telling how big the Heat’s star factor will get. While All-Stars Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry and Bam Adebayo currently hold things down—and have a lot to do with how Heat moneylines, spreads or totals are set for each game—betting on the Heat is about to reach new levels.
Below, we’ll show you how to jump directly into the action. We’ve got tonight’s live Heat odds from Florida online sportsbooks, along with the Heat’s NBA Finals odds, player and team props and more.

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 the HardRock:
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 favorites at -180.
Those odds mean that in order 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 got the W. 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.

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 at FanDuel Sportsbook could look like this:
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. The 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.

A total bet, which is 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 as you might find on the BetMGM Sportsbook app.
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.

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

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

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 goes along. For example, betting odds in a Heat game can be updated after every point scored or missed shot.
You have a number of 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.

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 more than 15 points after halftime.

Tickets to a Heat home game are a hot commodity. To capitalize on their popularity, the Heat have in place a dynamic ticket pricing system for individual game tickets. That means ticket prices for the games with the most demand will be higher, while games with less demand will be priced accordingly. However, tickets to select (read: less popular) regular season games have tickets starting as low as $15.
Heat games can be streamed by subscribers to Bally Sports Sun, TNT, ESPN, NBA TV and Bally Sports Florida. Download your favourite Florida sportsbook apps onto your mobile device, and you’ll be able to bet directly from the sportsbook app while you watch the Heat play from anywhere in Florida.
