How did the Pacers do last year?

The 2023-24 Indiana Pacers exceeded expectations, going 47-35 to earn a #6 seed in the Eastern Conference and then knocking out both the Milwaukee Bucks (#3) and New York Knicks (#2) to advance to the conference finals. That’s where their magical run ended with a loss to the eventual champion Boston Celtics.

It was a great leap forward for the Pacers after having gone 35-47 and missed the playoffs entirely in 2022-23. Of course, that performance also represented a step forward as the Pacers had only won 25 games in 2021-22.

With a combination of trades and draft picks, Coach Rick Carlisle has helped nurture the franchise back into contention during his second stint with Indiana. Carlisle previously coached the Pacers from 2003-2007, during which time he took them to one Eastern Conference final (in 2004). Now in his third season back with the Pacers, Carlisle has managed to equal that feat and hopes to top it in the near future. 

Vegas odds on the Pacers

Pundits still point to the Vegas odds on Pacers games out of habit. The truth is most lines open the same at Indiana sportsbooks as they do in Vegas. Where they may differ is in how they change.

Lines are set to draw an equal amount of betting to both sides. That way, sportsbooks can realize a consistent vig and have no reason to sweat the outcome of any game. When more money comes in on one side somewhere, that sportsbook will move the line to try to even out the betting again. There’s more interest in Pacers games in Indiana than there is in Vegas.

More betting interest means more money bet, making the chances more money is bet on one side much greater in Indiana. That means the lines are more likely to change ahead of tip-off here in Indiana than they are in Las Vegas.

Indiana Pacers live betting and props

Top Indiana online sportsbooks offer live betting and active props markets for every Pacers game. Doing so adds some fun and excitement to every game.

Live betting allows you to bet on or against the Pacers after a tip off at odds that change with the action on the court. These are the fastest-changing betting markets you’ll find, making live betting perfectly suited for betting with a sportsbook app downloaded to your phone.

Meanwhile, Pacers prop markets let you bet on the game within a game, mostly surrounding player and team stat lines. Pacers props may involve bets like:

  • Will Pascal Siakam score more or less than 21.5 points?
  • Will Tyrese Haliburton dish out more or less than 10.5 assists?
  • Will Myles Turner collect more or less than 7.5 rebounds?

How to read Indiana Pacers betting lines

Pacers betting lines at top Indiana online and mobile sportsbook normally look a lot like this:

Indiana Pacers      +3.5 (-110 )        +155          O 203.5 (-110)
LA Lakers               -3.5 (-110)          -175          U 203.5 (-110)

Point spread

The first set of numbers represents the spread with the odds posted in brackets.

If the Pacers are 3.5-point underdogs to the Lakers, spread bets on the Pacers will win if they win, or lose by less than three. That makes the Lakers 3.5-point favorites and means for spread bets on LA to win if the Lakers win by four or more.

Either way, at -110 odds, you’ll win $100, plus your original bet back, for every $110 you bet.


The second set of numbers represents the moneyline.

If the Pacers are +155 underdogs, every $100 you bet on the Pacers will pay $155, plus your bet back, if the Pacers win the game. If the Lakers are -175 favorites, every $175 you bet on the Lakers will pay $100, plus your bet back, if the Lakers win.


The final set of numbers represent the totals line with the odds posted in brackets.

This is a bet on whether the total combined Pacers-Lakers score will be over or under 203.5 points. Either way, if you’re right, you win $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 you bet.

Most popular NBA bets

nba bettingIt could be confusing at first to look at a sports betting site with so many different wager options on the board. Here’s a quick list of the most popular NBA bet types at a glance:

  • Point spread – The point spread is a wager in which you bet on teams to cover a projected margin of victory.
  • Moneyline – The money line is any wager in which you put money down picking an outright winner.
  • Total – The totals bet is essentially a chance to pick whether the final score for a game will be “OVER” or “UNDER” a specific total. If the teams combine to score more points than the number listed by the sportsbook, then the “OVER” hits. If the teams combine to score less points than the total listed, then the “UNDER” hits.
  • Futures – The futures wager is any type of bet in which the outcome will not be known for an extended amount of time. These types of wagers could include anything from betting on Indiana to win an NBA championship to odds to win a division or regular season win totals. It takes a while for futures odds to be finalized. However, if you are willing to wait it out the potential is there to make some serious money betting NBA futures.
  • Parlay – The parlay is any type of wager ticket that features two or more of the bet types listed in this column at the same time. Whether it’s a point spread and a money line bet on the same ticket, or a money line wager and a total on the same parlay, every team listed on these tickets must win in order for the parlay to be considered a winner. If even one team on the ticket loses, then the entire parlay is considered a loser.
  • Props – There are prop bets that focus on individual performances and prop bets that focus on team performances. An example of an individual performance prop bet would be betting on the number of points a player will score in a game. An example of a team performance prop bet would be putting money down on how many three-point shots a team scores in a game. Prop bets are an excellent tool for those looking to bet on a game without actually caring about which side wins outright or how many points the teams combine to score in any given contest.

Brief history of the Indiana Pacers

The Indiana Pacers were an American Basketball Association franchise established in 1967. The team joined the NBA as part of the ABA–NBA merger in 1976. The Pacers won three ABA titles and reached the NBA Finals in 2000, losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in six games.

Hall of Famer Reggie Miller was the star of that team and some of the best Pacers teams in franchise history. Miller played 18 NBA seasons, all with Indiana Pacers. He is widely recognized as one of the greatest three-point shooters in league history. Despite Miller retiring, and the team’s small-market status, the Pacers have remained competitive throughout the 2000s and 2010s.

The franchise has developed a reputation for putting well-coached teams on the floor who truly adopt the team concept rather than rely on free-agent stars. Over the course of the team’s history, the Pacers have had six different players who played multiple season for Indiana make the NBA Hall of Fame:

  • Reggie Miller
  • Chris Mullin
  • Alex English
  • Mel Daniels
  • Roger Brown
  • George McGinnis

Others who have played for the Pacers and made the Hall of Fame include Adrian DantleyGus Johnson, and Tim Hardaway. Pacers coaches Bobby “Slick” LeonardJack Ramsay, and Larry Brown are also Hall of Famers.

Nothing says Indianapolis quite like the Indy 500, and so the Pacers take their name from the Indianapolis 500 pace cars. Plus, Indiana also has a rich harness racing history, so the name applies to those pacers as well.
