Dbacks’ World Series odds: Facing a “Snakey” Challenge

Dbacks World Series Odds: Defying Expectations

At the height of MLB finest hours, the Arizona Dbacks World Series odds are challenging expectations once again. Despite starting as underdogs, they’re set to embark on a journey to conquer the World Series. Let’s delve into their remarkable story.

Entering the MLB season, there were nine National League teams with better odds to appear in the World Series than the Arizona Diamondbacks. Those who trusted the Dbacks from the beginning, rolling with Arizona at +12500 to win the World Series, will have felt they embarked on a “snakey” journey, and now could be in for a stunning surprise by late October or early November.

After three consecutive losing seasons, the Diamondbacks defied the MLB odds by edging out the Chicago Cubs by one game and finishing two games ahead of the Cincinnati Reds and San Diego Padres. This secured them one of the National League Wild Card spots.

Their journey didn’t stop there. After sweeping the National League Central Division champion Milwaukee Brewers and the National League West champion Los Angeles Dodgers, the Diamondbacks even overcame defending National League champ Philadelphia in seven thrilling games, whose highlights you can review here in Godds MLB betting news.

The Underdog Story Continues

As we look at the Dbacks World Series odds, the “snakes” are underdogs once again, priced at +145. But they’ve thrived as underdogs throughout the MLB postseason.

Arizona’s 48 wins in 2023 when listed as the underdog ranks eighth in the majors. Their resilience shines with a 29-26 outright record as a road underdog and a remarkable 57-40 record against the MLB betting lines as the underdog. They’ve proven that being an “underdog” only fuels their determination and inspires them to shine.

The Strengths That Define Them

  1. Big Zac Attack: Zac Gallen, though not likely to win the National League Cy Young Award, is a force to be reckoned with. His postseason ERA may not be exceptional, but the Diamondbacks often secure victories when he’s on the mound. With well-timed days off, he could make a significant impact in the World Series.
  2. Kelly Feeling Strong: The 1-2 punch of Gallen and Merrill Kelly powered the Diamondbacks throughout the MLB season. Kelly’s resilience and consistency have been instrumental in their journey to the World Series.
  3. Strong Leadership: Ketel Marte, with his record-breaking postseason batting streak, has been a constant source of success. Christian Walker and other experienced players bring valuable postseason experience and leadership to the team.
  4. The Kids are Just Fine: The Diamondbacks boast a talented young roster that has played a significant role in their success. From Corbin Carroll’s impressive playoff performance to Gabriel Moreno’s contributions, the future looks bright for Arizona.
  5. Key Pickup at Trade Deadline: The addition of Paul Sewald at the MLB trade deadline has proven to be a game-changer. Sewald’s impeccable performance in the playoffs, coupled with the team’s confidence in him, has solidified their bullpen.
