Miami Heat Basketball Betting Report - NBA Miami Heat Odds

Miami-Heat-Betting-ReportWill the real Miami Heat basketball team please step forward? It was a tale of two seasons for the Heat in 2016-17. There was the really bad start that saw them lose 14 of 18 games in one stretch and close out the first half with an 11-30 record, languishing at the bottom of the NBA standings. Then there was the championship-caliber second half that saw Miami win 30 of its final 41 games and creep into playoff contention before being eliminated on the final day of the season. With all ties to the Big Three era now gone, this group of unknowns carved out its own identity in the second half and should be a presence in the playoff race this season.

2016-17 Record: 41-41 SU, 48-33-1 ATS, 38-44 O/U

2017-18 Regular Season Win Total: 42.5

Odds To Win Eastern Conference: +3500

Odds To Win NBA Title: +8500

2016-17 Miami Heat Season Review

The turnaround was unexplainable. There was no trade for a superstar or a coaching change. The Heat didn’t crank fire alarms at the opponent’s hotel the night before games. For whatever reason, they just became a different team at the middle of the campaign. It may have taken some time to get used to the absence of Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, the last two members of the Big Three, but once they did, like a light switch the Heat became a fierce team.

It was a struggle at the outset. The Heat never won more than two consecutive games and they always lost at least two straight, including two six-game slides, a five-gamer and a four-game stretch that had them at 11-30 at the exact midpoint of the season.

Miami had the same group of players, led by Goran Dragic and Hassan Whiteside, but they became a more efficient offensive team with the help of Dion Waiters. The Heat won 13 straight immediately after hitting the halfway mark knocking off Houston, Golden State and Milwaukee in that stretch. And they didn’t lose more than two straight in the second half. There was a four-game win streak later in the season with wins over Toronto and Cleveland twice. The Heat continued rolling right to the very end, beating Washington and the Cavs again in the final week of the season to finish at 41-41. They lost out to the Bulls for the final playoff spot, but the run was one of the best.

2017-18 Miami Heat Season Outlook

It’s difficult to know exactly where the Heat stand heading into the season. They obviously weren’t as bad as their 11-30 record through the first half of last season. And they certainly aren’t a contender even after posting a .732 winning percentage over the second half of last season. Similar to how last season ended, it’s easy to see the Heat maybe increasing their win total by a few games, but a drastic jump is unlikely.

Waiters was a key for the offensive revival and the team locked him up during free agency. They need more than the 46 games he played, but Erik Spoelstra will be happy with the production of 16 points per game and several clutch game-winning shots. The inside-outside attack with Dragic and Whiteside got better as last season progressed and the two will be vital in making things work.

Getting a deal with Waiters was important, but the Heat also added to their arsenal by signing Kelly Olynyk, who likely steps into a starting role with his versatility and three-point shooting. There isn’t much missing from last season’s club and that raises all kinds of expectations after the finish the Heat had. With how things worked out in the East this offseason, the Heat are a definite threat for a middle playoff spot, but winning the conference is a longshot.
