Indiana Pacers Post-Season Odds Improve Slightly

The Indiana Pacers are currently in third place in the Eastern Conference and certainly exceeding most pre-season expectations. But the oddmakers are still taking a cautious approach to predicting playoff success for the Pacers.

Bovada just released updated odds to win the NBA Championship and the Eastern Conference Championship which show the Pacers have improved since the pre-season odds released on December 15th but there is still some lingering doubt as the Pacers are tied with the Atlanta Hawks at 25 to 1 to win the Eastern Conference title which would have those teams as 7th and 8th seeds.

Of course, there's some Jeremy Lin impact at work here as well. Not only are the New York Knicks 9 to 1 to win the East, good for third, but Lin himself is listed among the MVP odds for the end of the season award. The Pacers are 50 to 1 odds to win the NBA Championship which has improved from 75 to 1 before the season started.

After the links, check out all of the updated odds for the NBA title, Eastern Conference title and MVP. Also, make sure you sign up for SB Nation's YouTube channel set to launch on March 1st.
