Miami Heat Player Stats
The defending Eastern Conference champions came into the 2020-21 season with high expectations, but a humbling sweep at the hands of the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA Playoffs saw the Heat heading to the beach before Memorial Day.
The Heat struggled to maintain the lofty standards they set in the bubble: DraftKings projected their win total at 43 wins, but the Heat managed to go only 40-32 on the moneyline, losing bettors 6.35 units over the course of the season. See below for all Miami Heat betting information you need to know.
Miami Heat Point Spreads
Casual bettors love to say “Vegas always knows,” which certainly appears to be the case with Miami, which went 35-36-1 against the spread (ATS) in the 2020-21 season. Spread bets are among the most popular bets offered in basketball, as they are simply a margin-of-victory bet.
Let’s use an example of a point spread for a Heat home game:
- Atlanta Hawks (+3.5)
- Miami Heat (-3.5)
As always, the favorite is denoted by the minus sign (-) and the underdog by the plus sign (+). As 3.5-point favorites, point spread bets on the Heat would need at least a four-point win by Miami to cash; bets on the Heat would lose if the Hawks were to win or lose by three points or fewer.
Miami Heat Moneylines
If betting on the margin of victory seems too nervy, moneyline bets might be more your speed. Moneyline bets are a simple bet on who will win the game. Same as point spreads, the favorite is indicated with a minus sign (-) and the underdog with a plus sign (+).
Let’s use that Hawks game as an example:
- Atlanta Hawks +150
- Miami Heat -180
The odds shown in American format are expressed in units of $100. To win $100 betting the favored Heat, one would have to wager $180. On the flip side, a $100 wager on the visiting Hawks would win $150 if Atlanta were to prevail.
Miami Heat Over/Unders
With a team of defensive grinders, one might expect tons of low-scoring games in Miami. But the Heat’s 2020-21 season saw them go over the total 38 times against 34 unders, scuttling bettors who relied on tight defense.
An over/under, or total, is a bet on the combined number of points scored between the two teams in question, with the winner of the matchup having no implication on the wager. If the total between the Hawks and Heat was set at 232 points, over bettors would need both teams to combine for 233 points or more, while under bettors would be rooting for 231 points or fewer. The bet would be declared a “push,” with wagers refunded, if the teams were to score exactly 232 points.
Miami Heat Props
If you’d rather bet on Bam Adebayo, Jimmy Butler, or any of the young shooters on the Heat, what you’re looking for is a prop bet. A prop bet can be a wager on just about anything, from over/unders on points, rebounds, or assists, to bets as specific as “who will score the first bucket?”
Futures are bets on events far in the future, such as division or title winners, who will win MVP, or whether or not a team will make the postseason. If you’re bullish on Miami’s ability to add a third star over the summer, you might be inclined to bet some of its futures.
