Diamondbacks See Arizona Sports Betting Odds Improve After Surprising Start
Fact Checked by Young Ruth

The Arizona Diamondbacks have been a pleasant surprise in this MLB season, surprising both fans and Arizona betting apps.

On Friday, the D-backs will begin their series against the Chicago Cubs with a 17-15 record, putting them 4.5 games behind the NL West-leading L.A. Dodgers.

The team’s surprising strong start is unexpected, especially since DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona projected it to finish with a win total over/under of 66.5.

The D-backs have already clinched series wins against the Dodgers, St. Louis, Miami, and Colorado, earning them more recognition and respect in the world of MLB betting.

The team’s up-and-coming players, such as centerfielder Daulton Varsho and pitchers Merrill Kelly and Zac Gallen, have been praised by national baseball media for their outstanding performance, suggesting that the team could be a surprise contender.

Diamondbacks poised as one of the NL’s dark horse teams in 2022

The Diamondbacks’ standing in Arizona sports betting is currently in the lower third of the league, which is a notable improvement from pre-season predictions.

For instance, the D-backs’ projected win total has risen from 66.5 prior to the start of the season to 72.5 as of Thursday, as reported by Caesars Sportsbook.

You can place a bet on the D-backs making the 2022 MLB playoffs with DraftKings Sportsbook Arizona, where Arizona is listed at odds of +1400.

The long-term prospects for the team at FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona are not looking very promising.

The operator located in New York has the D-backs tied with Baltimore and Cincinnati for last place in the odds to win the 2022 World Series at +100000. Arizona is ranked 12th out of 15 teams in the NL odds board at +31000 and +30000 to win the National League West.

Arizona is a slight underdog in Friday’s game against Chicago.

This weekend, the Arizona Diamondbacks will face off against the Chicago Cubs at Chase Field. The D-backs are +1.5 and -110 in Friday’s game, which starts at 6:40 p.m. Arizona time. Kelly is looking to outperform Cubs pitcher Drew Smyly.

It is still unclear if Torrey Lovullo’s team has the potential to become the first D-backs squad to make the postseason since 2017.

Currently, Arizona has proven they can compete with any team, a notable improvement from their 52-110 record in 2021.
