Miami Heat Betting Outlook
- Championship Odds: +1800
- Conference Odds: +1000
- Division Odds: Ev
The Heat are the current favorites to win the Southeast Division over the Hawks, Hornets, Wizards and Magic.
Most of the early betting money has come in that betting market, but they have also been speculated to win the Eastern Conference at +1000.
The addition of Kyle Lowry helps the defense, which could see Miami improving significantly on last season. We’re not surprised by the money coming for the Heat, especially with the drama surrounding Kyrie Irving and the Nets.
The structure is there for the Heat to make a deep playoff run, similar to the one made in the bubble. We expect the odds to hold steady as the season progresses.
Heat 2021-22 Predictions
- Regular Season Record: 49-33
- Conference Standing: 4th
- Division Standing: 1st

Miami Heat Team Leaders
There isn’t a lack of team leadership on the Heat. Jimmy Butler is the player they look to for guidance, and he is one of the more vocal leaders in the NBA.
However, it’s not just the Jimmy Butler show. The Heat also have new acquisition Kyle Lowry, who not only adds to the leadership group, but his work on the defensive side of the ball could transform the Heat.
Add in the likes of 36-year-old P.J. Tucker, 41-year-old Udonis Haslem and 32-year-old Markieff Morris, and the Heat are rolling with plenty of experienced players. It is a nice balance with young stars Tyler Herro and Bam Adebayo.
It was an interesting season for the Heat, who went 40-32 to finish sixth in the Eastern Conference and second in their division.
They were bounced in the first round 4-0 against eventual champions Milwaukee.
Miami was swept in the playoffs for the first time since 2007, and although it was a disappointing effort based on the previous year, it performed well enough considering the roster talent.
Most of the problems came on offense, with the Heat ranked 18th in the league in offensive efficiency. The likes of Duncan Robinson and Tyler Herro took a backwards step, but Butler was steady.
Defense was stout, ranking 7th, so Miami lived up to expectations on that side of the ball.

Erik Spoelstra continues his long association with the Heat. He started coaching in 2008 and continues for his 14th season.
Spoelstra won consecutive NBA Championships in 2011-2013, with LeBron James. They haven’t won since, but they have been a consistently top-level Eastern Conference team.
The Heat have had only two losing seasons under Spoelstra’s leadership, and they have made the playoffs in all but three seasons.
It’s an impressive record for the 50-year-old, who took over from Pat Riley. It was an innovative decision from Riley to select Spoelstra as head coach in 2008, but clearly an inspired pick.
He is often regarded as one of the best coaches in the NBA.
