We’re getting deeper and deeper into the NBA playoffs and as the series approach crunch time, it seems that sports bettors are backing the Miami Heat to stay cool.

Up 2-0 against the Bucks, the Heat have looked extremely impressive on the court and bettors have responded accordingly. In the 24 hours since their 2-point victory in Game 2, more bets have been placed on Miami to win the NBA title than any other team, with 31.82% of wagers backing them.

This is despite the fact that their odds of +800 sets them as the fifth-favorite with oddsmakers, and carries an implied probability of just 11.11% that they will achieve the feat.

Oddschecker spokesperson Pete Watt: "Miami was one of the form teams within the bubble and each passing day has only further developed a bond between the players. Whereas other teams may have more stars, the Heat have become more than the sum of their parts, a real team."

“Jimmy Butler is at his All-Star best, but his supporting cast, Dragic, Herro and Adebayo, are also showcasing their talents.”
