The Boston Celtics are bound for South Beach with another winner-take-all Game 7 on the line.

Many left the Miami Heat for dead ahead of their Game 6 trip to Boston, but they covered as 9-point dogs to force the series back to Florida. Bettors eyeing Celtics vs. Heat Game 7 odds will find Boston favored across the sportsbook industry.

Jimmy Butler will be the leading force if the Heat pull off the upset in Game 7. He erupted for 47 points on 16 of 29 shooting from the field, including 4 of 8 from behind the arc. As electrifying as his performance was, Heat backers have to be equally encouraged by Kyle Lowry’s 18-point, 10-assist performance after he struggled with injury and ineffectiveness throughout the postseason.

Bettors should continue to shop around for the best prices for the side and props on which they’d like to wager. Sportsbooks are constantly adjusting prices for individual games in addition to the NBA Finals.

Celtics vs. Heat Game 7 Odds

The Celtics are laying as 2.5-point favorites at several of the industry’s top sportsbooks and own odds as short as +260 (DraftKings Sportsbook) to win the NBA Finals.

Bettors willing to assume some perceived risk, however, can find the Heat at +600 to win it all. While the Heat would certainly be significant underdogs in a meeting with the Golden State Warriors, they’ve demonstrated their mettle on the biggest stage and shouldn’t be written off.

Celtics vs. Heat Game 7 Props, SGPs

Bettors are far from limited to betting solely on the outcome of this high-stakes affair. Sportsbooks offer a plethora of prop bets, with player props among the most popular way to enhance the wagering experience.

Tatum and Butler Headline Player Props

There are plenty of options for those who want to place a few simple prop bets — perhaps an ‘over’ or ‘under’ on Jayson Tatum or Jimmy Butler points scored. FanDuel sets Tatum’s total at 28.5 with ‘over’ odds at -116 and the ‘under’ at -104. Meanwhile, bettors can lay -112 on Butler to surpass 27.5 points or -108 for him to fall below that mark.

Game 7 Same-Game Parlays

Same-game parlays are a fun way to take in postseason action, but bettors should be sure to approach them cautiously as the book owns a substantial advantage.

With that said, bettors who want to pair a Celtics win with a Tatum ‘over’ can chase nice profits on the +173 odds. Meanwhile, an SGP combining the Heat covering with a Butler ‘over’ is priced at +196.
