Oddsmakers Release Miami Heat’s Chances of Winning NBA Championship This Season
- Updated: September 16, 2020
The Miami Heat now have the second-best odds to win the NBA title after their Game 1 victory over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday.
Heat championship odds now down to 9-2, per BetOnLine. Second only to Lakers’ 5-to-9. Heat a 20-to-31 favorite now to win East. Nuggets more than 5-1 to win West.

The Heat were also likely helped by the Denver Nuggets upset of the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night.
Denver rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to knock off the heavily favored Clippers in the second round.
The Heat looked as good as they have all postseason on Monday, as they came back from a big fourth-quarter hole to defeat the Celtics in overtime.
Butler called Adebayo a “savior” for his huge defensive play on Jayson Tatum that sealed the win.
The Heat will look to continue to dominate in the playoffs in Game 2. Miami is 9-1 since the postseason began.
