The current Dallas Mavericks NBA championship odds are . Just one season after upsetting the No. 1-seeded Phoenix Suns before falling in the Western Conference Finals to Golden State, the Mavericks failed to make the postseason; they did not even qualify for a play-in game, which gives the No. 9 and No. 10 seeds a chance to squeeze into the postseason.

Now, Dallas will try to hit the reset button and build around the duo of Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic. Can the Mavs find the playoffs again in 2024 and make a deep run, or will they again fall short? Take a look at all of the current Dallas Mavericks NBA Championship odds below!

The Doncic-Irving saga has started off poorly: they have a 5-11 record together so far. However, it is difficult to properly judge the efficacy of this experiment due to the simple fact that the sample size is so small. Further, the Mavericks were a below-average team last season, so adding Irving was not going to change their luck overnight.

While there are a lot of questions that still need to be answered with this team, they made a number of promising off-season moves that could expedite their growth. For one, they brought in Grant Williams, a perfect stretch forward that will instantly raise the Dallas’ defensive quality. Additionally, the Mavs signed Seth Curry, traded for Richaun Holmes, and drafted Olivier-Maxence Prosper and Dereck Lively II. There is a lot to like about the overall direction of this team, but will it be enough for them to enter their championship window already? Check out their strengths and weaknesses below!

Reasons Why Dallas Mavericks Can & Can’t Win NBA 2023-24 Championship

Strengths

  • Three-Point Shooting: If we have learned anything from this Mavs team, it is that they are not afraid to let the deep ball fly. Last season, Dallas finished third in 3PA (three-point attempts) and eighth in 3P% (three-point percentage.) As if that was not impressive enough, the Mavericks opted to sign Seth Curry, a career 43.5% three-point shooter, and Grant Williams, who just shot 39.5% from deep on much higher volume. Additionally, Jaden Hardy shot over 40% from behind the arc in just his rookie year, which is a terrific sign for future shooting success. Kyrie Irving is also a career 39%+ three-point shooter! As a matter of fact, Luka Doncic is the weak link in this area, but we can expect his shooting to improve with much improved offensive spacing and some off the ball play. Don’t be surprised if Dallas winds up being the best three-point shooting team in the league.
  • Star Power: Even though they struggled in their 16 total games together, one has to think that Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving are going to figure out how to not only co-exist, but thrive, too. Doncic is amongst the best players in the NBA, but his play style requires him to have the ball in his hands a lot. If he can improve his shooting off the ball and delegate some of the offensive responsibilities to a more-than-capable Irving, the Mavericks are going to be terrifying offensively.

    Weaknesses

    • Rebounding/Frontcourt: While Mavs fans should feel optimistic about the additions of Richaun Holmes, Grant Williams, and Dereck Lively II, they will not completely erase the rebounding troubles that Dallas has had in the past few seasons. The Mavs finished dead last in offensive rebounding percentage and 29th in total rebounding rate. If they don’t improve on the glass, it’s hard to imagine they will get very far.
    • Defense/Rim Protection: Dallas struggled with a capital “S” on the defensive end of the floor last season; it ranked 25th in defensive rating and 20th in opponent eFG% (effective field goal percentage.) While the Mavs did a good job contesting three-pointers, they have a huge, explotable problem on that end of the floor: interior defense. Trading for Grant Williams should help the Mavs’ frontcourt a bit, particularly with their physicality and strength, but he will not aid their lack of rim protection whatsoever. The Mavericks’ best hope is that Dereck Lively II comes along sooner than expected, filling that much-needed gap, because Dwight Powell is never going to be the answer.
