Indiana Pacers NBA Championship Odds 2022-23

The current Indiana Pacers NBA championship odds are . Indiana is an obvious longshot to win the NBA Championship, considering it is in a complete rebuild. After trading Domantas Sabonis at the trade deadline for Buddy Hield and Tyrese Haliburton, it was clear that Indiana was going to blow up its roster and acquire as many young, high-ceiling players and draft capital as possible. Unfortunately, that will not lead to wins in the meantime.

It has been a while since the Indiana Pacers had a season as abysmal as the 2021-22 campaign; however, at least this awful season was somewhat by design. Indiana decided to embrace a complete rebuild at the trade deadline by moving on from All-Star Domantas Sabonis and now Malcolm Brogdon. Myles Turner has also been mentioned in several trade rumors, but there has not been any real traction. Assuming Indiana trades Turner, it will probably be a bottom five team in the NBA for the next few years, especially in an Eastern Conference that has several teams in title contention.

Reasons Why Indiana Pacers Can & Can’t Win NBA 2022-23 Championship


  • Rebuild: A rebuild is a strength if a franchise is in a bad enough place. In this case, the Pacers were stuck with several guys who can be competitive but not competitive enough; this team has been middle-of-the-road for the better part of the last two decades.
  • Guard Play: Tyrese Haliburton embraced Indiana’s new environment and culture with open arms, and his play improved, too. Haliburton averaged roughly 18 points, ten assists, four rebounds, and two steals on a 50/42/85 shooting split in 26 games with the Pacers. There is no question that Hali is the Pacers’ point guard of the future, and Indy has done a fantastic job of surrounding him with solid talents like first-round pick Benn Mathurin and Chris Duarte. The Pacers also have veterans Buddy Hield and T.J. McConnell to round out their rotation.


    • Defense: While defense has been a Pacers staple in the past (think the early 2000s and early 2010s), it was not all that important to last season’s team. Of course, this is partly because the ‘Cers were tanking, and Myles Turner missed half the season, but a little more effort wouldn’t have hurt. Indiana ranked dead-last in opponent 3P% (three-point percentage) and 28th in opponent eFG% (effective field goal percentage) and defensive efficiency. It’s likely not going to get a lot better this season, especially if the Pacers move on from Myles Turner before the 2022-23 season.
    • Three-Point Shooting: Three-point shooting has not been a strength for the Pacers in recent years, especially last season when they ranked in the bottom five in the league in 3P%. Indiana traded Malcolm Brogdon to the Boston Celtics, which is suitable for its rebuild but means it has one less capable perimeter shooter. Still, I anticipate the Pacers to be a better shooting team as long as they keep Buddy Hield and have Haliburton, Duarte, and Mathurin healthy for the whole season.
    • Superstar-less: Ever since the Pacers moved on from Paul George, they have not had a superstar to fill the gap; they tried to make Victor Oladipo the next star, but it didn’t work out. One thing that is abundantly clear about the NBA is that you must have at least one, if not more, superstars to compete for a championship.
