What are odds the Heat set new consecutive wins record? About 6/1.

If the Miami Heat are going to set a new NBA record with 34 consecutive wins, it will happen April 9 in Miami against the Bucks.

That’s 11 games and a few weeks away, what are the odds they can make it?

How about 6/1?

That’s the odds at Bovada, showing you the bookmakers know it is still a pretty long way to the promised land. There are road games in Chicago and San Antonio, there are back-to-backs, and there is the need to start getting players rest before the playoffs. Plus, other teams are motivated against the Heat right now — look how well both the shorthanded Celtics and the 76ers played the Heat in the last week.

If Miami gets to 34, it’s only five more games until the end of the season. You can get 10-1 odds the Heat close out the season without a loss. The under/over bet on the win streak is 29.

What are the odds on the Heat to win the NBA title? 11/10. Which means bet $100, win $110. Not much return on investment, but that’s where the public’s mind is about who wins it all this year. (I say public because odds are about public perception and earning the house an edge, although to be honest most basketball insiders think it’s the Heat then everyone else, too.)

    I kinda expected this… didn’t you? 2 years ago the Best player in the planet joined forces with the 2nd best guard in the league and a top 3 power forward. Having said that I do believe LBJ and co. will break the record, also they have a legitimate chance to win 4 championships in a row

    Chalmers and Bosh look like Zombies in that picture, lurking down the court to dig Jason Terry up from the dead.

        Whoa, hit the wrong button there. it was going to be a great post too. Something about how pathetic it is that you’re no longer only hoping that the Knicks will be good. you’re no longer hoping the Heat don’t win a championship(s). Now you’re only hope in life is that the Heat lose ONCE. That they lose A game. Singular. That they go 23-1 in their last 24 games. If they only would lose ONE meaningless regular season game, THEN you could gloat and say, “told you”.

        You call yourself a basketball fan? To not acknowledge the Heat’s accomplishment, even if it goes no further, is such a weak and loser move on your part man. Expected more from you.

    6:1 … I need to start gambling just for this. That’s what – 10 opportunities for a team to beat them. This might be my first sports bet

    Whether they make that goal or not what they’ve done so far is pretty impressive, especially in this day and age.
