Jimmy Butler and Nikola Jokic have done the unthinkable! Nobody predicted a Heat-Nuggets NBA Finals this season. With teams like the Boston Celtics, Golden State Warriors, Milwaukee Bucks, and Phoenix Suns all dominating in 2022, many thought one of those four teams would participate. However, those two superstars mentioned proved everyone wrong.

The Heat defeated the Celtics in seven games as they won three road games in that series. As for the Nuggets, they swept the Lakers in four games and have had over a week off.

Here are the same-game parlay odds for the NBA Finals Game 1

Same-Game Parlay Odds: Heat-Nuggets NBA Finals Game 1 Odds

  • Miami to cover the spread
  • Jimmy Butler 25+ points
  • Jamal Murray 25+ points
  • Nikola Jokic 12+ rebounds

Same-Game Parlay Odds: +597 (subject to change)

Butler and the Heat are +9 underdogs to win Game 1. Miami has been underdogs the entire playoffs and it seems a bit disrespectful to give them nine points, even on the road.

Butler scored 28 in Game 7 as he earned himself the ECF MVP. If the Heat want to compete in this game, then Butler must score the rock and 25 points seem very doable.

Jamal Murray is a scoring machine himself, especially in the postseason. He's averaging 27.7 points in the playoffs and will certainly score close to 25 tonight.

Jokic is a rebounding machine and averages over 13 rebounds per game. It's likely he will grab 12+ as Bam Adebayo is not playing well right now.
