Indiana Pacers Odds, Betting Guide & Picks for 2019-20
  • URL Copied!

The Indiana Pacers were left for dead when Victor Oladipo suffered a ruptured right quad in January. But instead of fading, Nate McMillan’s group stayed afloat, went 15-19 and made it to the postseason. Oladipo is out for the early portion of the season, but the 2020 Pacers will be improved in a number of areas. They’re a contender in the top-heavy East.

Here’s the key odds available and how you should bet them:

Pacers Win-Total Betting

The Line: 47.5 with SugarHouse

The Pacers lost Bojan Bogdanovic (Jazz) and Darren Collison (retired) but added Malcolm Brogdon, a significant piece for a team that will begin the year without Oladipo. Still, there will be early struggles before their All-Star returns, which means they’ll need a strong second half to get to 48 wins.

The Bet: Back the under. We think they’ll just miss the mark.

Pacers Central Division Odds

The Line: +400 with DraftKings

Indiana is a playoff team, but they’re a clear tier below the Milwaukee Bucks. Milwaukee is the league’s biggest division favorite for a reason, and the Pacers really have no chance to keep up with the presumed top seed in the East.

The Bet: Avoid this bet.

Pacers Eastern Conference Odds

The Line: +1600 with FanDuel

If OIadipo returns to form, Myles Turner makes an All-Star leap and Brogdon fits in, the Pacers are good enough on both ends to make noise in the playoffs. A bet on the Pacers is a bet on Oladipo.

The Bet: A lot has to go right, but this may be worth a small wager just to see what they look like with a healthy Oladipo.

Pacers NBA Title Odds

The Line: +5000 with 888sport

This is probably too aggressive. Maybe the Pacers can hang in the East, but it’s tough to envision them going toe-to-toe with the winner of the West. Even in a best-case scenario, the Pacers don’t have a championship roster.

The Bet: You can safely avoid these odds.

Best Pacers Player Prop Bets

The Line: Myles Turner Defensive Player of the Year +1200 with PointsBet

Turner has gotten better every year he’s been in the league. Last season it meant leading the NBA in blocks per game for the league’s No. 3 defense. After an impressive showing for Team USA in the FIBA World Cup, Turner could continue his rise as an elite interior defender.

The Bet: At these odds, for the reigning leader in blocks, it’s pretty good value.
