Diamondbacks Win Totals Have Proved Prescient Over Years
Fact Checked by Michael Peters

The Arizona Diamondbacks are on the verge of kicking off a season brimming with promise after the National League West stalwart caught fire and reached the franchise’s second World Series in 2023.

Fresh off that 84-78 campaign that came on the heels of a preseason win total at Arizona sports betting sites of 75.5, it’s worth wondering how the Diamondbacks have performed versus the burden of preseason expectations.

Using SportsOddsHistory.com, BetArizona.com broke down how the D’backs fared against their Opening Day win total odds since 2014. At the moment, FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona lists the D’backs total for 2024 at 83.5, which is the franchise’s highest entering a season since 2018.

Diamondbacks Win Totals by Year

Year Preseason Over/Under Record

Arizona betting apps list the Los Angeles Dodgers as the World Series favorite at +400, followed by Atlanta at +650.

D’backs Preseason Totals Usually Predictive

Since 2014, the D’backs have hit their preseason win total over/under five times, doing so in each of the last two seasons. There are five times since 2014 where Arizona failed to clear its preseason win total figure, including 2021 when it went a disappointing 52-110 despite a preseason number of 75.5.

In the last 10 seasons, the D’backs’ highest win total entering a season was 85 in 2018. They finished 82-80. This year’s 83.5 figure comes as oddsmakers from ESPN BET Arizona list the club at +750 to win the NL West.

Overall, ESPN BET gives Torey Lovullo’s team the second-best odds of winning its division, behind the Los Angeles Dodgers (-375) and ahead of San Diego (+900), San Francisco (+1000) and Colorado (+10000).

If Lovullo and company can clear the D’backs’ preseason win total of 83.5, it’d mark the first time since 2006-2008 that the franchise did so in three straight seasons.
