Usually, the Miami Heat betting odds are favorable. With a top-notch roster of talented players, the team is always a contender. Attracting wagers from fans who believe the franchise has the grit and skill to take the Championship, the Heat regularly draw favorable odds.
With a tough-to-beat defense, the Miami Heat manages to prevent excessive scoring from talented teams. Working as a synchronized unit, the team exemplifies gameplay at its best. Strategically implementing both the man-to-man and zone defense, the Heat often dominates skilled opponents.
If necessary, the Heat will throw multiple players at an opposing superstar to maintain control. Opponents who finally score must get past the Heat's formidable Bam Adebayo to do so, and that is no easy task.
Working in collaboration, Jimmy Butler and Adebayo aggressively attack the hoop. Butler calls Adebayo "unguardable" when he's got his game face on. At the very least, the center and power forward is highly effective.
The two bring a sense of synergy to the Heat, which sparks high-level play from the entire team. Outscoring opponents with the help of a dynamic supporting bench, the team finishes the pick and roll and drives to the hole with style and flair.
The Heat's shooting game could be better. Closing the season and post-season play with a 32-2 when the team is shooting at least 40% on 3-pointers but 32-34 if shooting worse. It's an indication that the Heat may consider picking up another long-distance shooter at the draft time to complement its strong cast of performers.
Butler is one of the NBA's best wings, capable inside the arc, and one of the best mid-range players in the league. However, he's not a high-volume 3-point player.
