As one of the two youngest franchises in Major League Baseball having entered the league in 1998 (Tampa Bay is the other), the Arizona Diamondbacks have experienced quite a bit of success during their short time in the league. 1999 saw Arizona win their first division title after a 100-win campaign, and two year’s later the Diamondbacks were able to capture the franchise’s first and only World Series in the franchise history.
Lately things haven’t gone as well for Arizona with only one playoff appearance since the 2008 season as fans hope the 2016 season and beyond bring a return to glory. That ascend could happen soon and that’s why bettors can continue to find value in Arizona Diamondbacks odds each week.

Bet On Diamondbacks Games
Since winning the NL West in 2011, the Diamondbacks failed to post a winning record the next four years. It’s been a constant trend of hovering around the .500 mark and with how much success the Dodgers and Giants have had in that span, a .500 mark won’t even sniff the playoffs. In fact, the closes Arizona was to 1st place in the NL West during that span as 11-games back in 2013.
Led by the likes of Paul Goldschmidt and now P Zack Greinke, Arizona is looking to be a threat to the Dodgers and Giants once again. Yet, bettors have a tough time trusting this team because their results have been rather consistent on the losing end. From 2012-14, the Diamondbacks cost bettors -47.9 units had they bet on Arizona to win every game each year.
The peak of those losses came in 2014 when the Diamondbacks finished with the worst record in MLB vs the moneyline at -31.1 units.
However, things turned around a bit in 2015 with a +1.54 unit record for bettors in that same scenario and many believe it might be a sign of things to come for this team.
Arizona went out and signed P Zack Greinke after the 2015 season to a long-term deal and the former Cy Young winner is counted on to be the ‘ace’ of a pitching staff that has had many issues during those down seasons.
Make no mistake about it though, this team is one that’s on the rise, and with the favourable underdog prices you are likely to get with the Diamondbacks as the Giants and Dodgers steal all the headlines should bring winning bets.
