Arizona Diamondbacks have long odds for the World Series in 2022 due to betting apps in the state.

Arizona Betting Apps Give Diamondbacks Long World Series Odds in 2022

The ongoing lockout stemming from the league’s collective bargaining agreement, with 118 days remaining until the start of the 2022 Major League Baseball regular season, may impact the scheduled timeline.

Several leading sports betting apps in Arizona have tried to forecast the World Series odds for the Arizona Diamondbacks, but unfortunately, most of them do not have good news to share about the team.

The Diamondbacks are set to begin the 2022 MLB regular season with a tentative schedule for a game at 11:10 a.m. on March 31 in Milwaukee, Arizona time.

Several Arizona sportsbooks have published their odds for the 2022 World Series and league championships, placing the D-backs at the bottom of the rankings in both categories.

An examination of the best in Major League Baseball

The flurry of offseason activity leading up to this week’s lockout had a significant impact on the online MLB betting odds.

After signing free agent infielders Marcus Semien and Corey Seager for $500 million, the Texas Rangers saw the most drastic change in odds according to FanDuel Sportsbook, with their World Series odds dropping from +50000 to +7500 since the end of the season.

The New York Mets’ recent moves before the lockout have propelled them to a tie for third place in World Series odds at +1100. Despite this, the top three teams – the Los Angeles Dodgers at +600, Houston Astros at +1000, and Chicago White Sox also at +1100 – have remained unchanged since the odds were first released in 2022.


What are the latest developments with the Diamondbacks?

Mark Melancon, a former Arizona Wildcats pitcher, was signed by the Diamondbacks to a two-year deal before the MLB lockout on Thursday, along with other free agent acquisitions.

Melancon, the San Diego Padres’ closer last season, led all pitchers in saves by successfully finishing 39 games. Additionally, he boasted a 2.23 ERA and tallied 59 strikeouts in 64 2/3 innings pitched.

Arizona not only added a veteran reliever but also acquired first baseman Jordan Luplow from the Tampa Bay Rays. Additionally, the team signed second baseman Jake Hager, designated hitter Matt Davidson, catcher Juan Graterol, and relief pitcher Chris Devenski to minor league contracts.

The D-backs were able to reach agreements with pitchers Noe Ramirez, J.B. Wendelken, and Caleb Smith on their contracts, thus avoiding arbitration.

Arizona traded infielder Ronny Simon, who had a .245 batting average with 17 home runs and 63 RBIs in 97 games for the Hillsboro Hops and Visalia Rawhide, in exchange for Luplow. Luplow is now a member of the D-backs after the trade.

Luplow is focused on improving his performance in the upcoming 2022 season as he plays in the desert, after posting a .202 batting average and 0.3 WAR in his only season with the Rays in 2021.

In 2022, Lovullo and GM Mike Hazen will guide a scrappy team through challenging circumstances in their quest to break the D-backs’ five-year playoff dry spell.
