When it comes to the standings in themselves, the Miami Heat haven’t been terrible, at all, this season. If one were the betting or wagering type though, they also haven’t been a bad route to go.

Admittedly, they’ve been poorer than expected in this latest road trip, but that doesn’t mean that it hasn’t been some cash to be made on them throughout the season thus far. If you take a look at their odds history and though 9-5 overall, they are actually 10-4 against the spread.

When it comes to their over/under proficiency, they managed to hit the over in eight of their 14 contest, so about 50/50 there. Through their early injury trouble, they’ve still managed to be a pretty high-output team on the offensive side of the ball, which certainly helps when it comes to wagering scoring totals.

A lot of that scoring ability, early offense, high-pace, and output can be directly attributed to the addition of Kyle Lowry to the offense.

The Miami Heat haven jumped out as one of the better teams in the league and they should be one of a bettor’s team. They’re not a bad bet, at all, this season.

He has brought a new energy and fire that has propelled the Miami Heat to a top-six team scoring rank in the league, at 110.1 points per contest.

When you look at the Miami Heat’s next contest, odds, and information, all provided by WynnBET, they’ll have another good chances to help wagerers cash in as they face the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night. Coming off a good win over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Oklahoma City, they welcome in the 2-13 Pelicans for a game that shouldn’t even be that close.

Jonas Valančiūnas is having an amazing year, averaging 19 points, 13 boards, and nearly three assists on 50 percent shooting from the floor, 59.3 percent from three, and 87.7 percent from the free throw line. However, with the Heat’s high-level defensive ability, taking on any scoring-props for the Lithuanian big man might be a risky play.

Either way, it should be a fun matchup with a plenty of earning opportunities. The Miami Heat should, indeed, continue in their money-winning ways as well.

Have fun and wager wisely!
