Diamondbacks Face Long Arizona Sports Betting World Series Odds Entering Season
Fact Checked by Young Ruth

The Arizona Diamondbacks kick off the first full MLB season since the introduction of sports betting in Arizona with a game against Yu Darvish and the San Diego Padres on Thursday.

The D-backs are entering the 2022 MLB season with minimal expectations, as oddsmakers anticipate that the team will miss the postseason for the fifth year in a row.

The Arizona Diamondbacks are looking to climb above a .500 winning percentage for the first time in three years by blending young prospects with seasoned veterans. Madison Bumgarner, a left-handed pitcher, will take the mound as the team’s opening day starter at Chase Field on Thursday night.

The Diamondbacks are the underdogs at home on Opening Day.

The D-backs will start off Thursday’s Opening Day with a game against San Diego at 6:40 p.m. Arizona time.

As per FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona, the odds for Torey Lovullo’s team to win against the Padres are currently +126, while the Padres are listed at -148.

Since 2019, Arizona has a 13-16 record against the Padres, including an 8-11 record in the 2021 regular season.

Arizona is expected to have a low preseason ranking.

Few people expect the D-backs to have a major impact on the field this season.

Both DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona and FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona are projecting 66.5 wins for Arizona, which seems to be the agreed upon baseline.

BetMGM Arizona and Caesars Sportsbook Arizona both have the 2001 World Series champions, the D-backs, at +25000 odds to win the World Series and +12500 odds to win their first National League pennant in 21 years.

The D-backs are currently tied for last place on both the operators’ World Series and National League odds boards, along with Baltimore and Pittsburgh.

On other platforms like DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona and FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona, the team’s odds of winning their second championship are equally dismal at +25000.

The Diamondbacks have the second-longest odds in the National League at +15000 according to FanDuel Sportsbook in Arizona, ahead of the Pirates. Meanwhile, DraftKings Sportsbook gives them slightly better odds at +12500.

Key trends to keep an eye on for Arizona Diamondbacks bettors

Those utilizing Arizona betting apps for MLB should keep in mind that the regular season is a tough road, as any team can emerge victorious on any given night.

Teams like the D-backs, who are often underestimated, are likely to win more than one-third of their games, which makes them a contender regardless of their overall record.

This indicates that bettors must carefully analyze the moneyline and run spread, taking into account variables such as the starting pitcher and lineup decisions made by the team’s manager, which can ultimately determine the ease of a win or the pain of a loss.

With 162 games in a season, betting on a single MLB game can be unpredictable, but bettors have plenty of opportunities to make successful wagers if they time their bets wisely.

For instance, let’s take a look at the no-hitter pitched by rookie Tyler Gilbert against the Padres last year. The D-backs were considered a +190 underdog for that game, according to DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona.

This achievement is highly uncommon in sports, emphasizing that every team should never be underestimated, regardless of their record.

With everything out in the open, now is the moment to take a seat at the ballpark or your living room recliner and enjoy the national pastime. Thursday’s Opening Night signals the start of D-backs baseball in 2022.
