What Day of the Week is Best for the Diamondbacks?
Fact Checked by Michael Peters

Few in the Valley — or those participating in Arizona sports betting — will forget the run the Diamondbacks went on during the 2023 MLB postseason, advancing out of the NL Wild Card round to reach the club’s second World Series before falling to Texas in five games.

Last season, the D-backs reached the playoffs for the first time since 2017 with an 84-78 (.519) record and were outscored by 15 runs in the regular season, illustrating how anyone can get hot at the right time in the postseason.

This year, oddsmakers at FanDuel Arizona list the D-backs’ win total over/under at 83.5, with +1100 odds of capturing the NL West (ranking second behind the Los Angeles Dodgers at -600) and +3500 World Series odds.

Ahead of Arizona’s regular season opener against Colorado at Chase Field on March 28, BetArizona.com looked at the 2023 season to see what day of the week the Diamondbacks are at their best, utilizing BaseballReference.com.

Which Day of the Week Did D-backs Excel?

The D-backs’ best day of the week a year ago was Monday, when Arizona went 13-5 (.722), with the first day of the week joining Friday (16-12, .571), Saturday (15-12, .556) and Wednesday (11-11, .500) as the only days the club went .500 or better.

Arizona’s worst day of the week last season was Thursday, where it went 5-11 (.313). Keep that in mind if you’re using Arizona sportsbook promos to wager on the Diamondbacks.

Torey Lovullo’s team will start the 2024 regular season on a Thursday evening, with the D-backs’ Opening Day slated to start at 7:10 p.m. at Chase Field in the first of a four-game weekend series.

Based on the records from 2023, it seems like D-backs fans should probably buy tickets to Arizona’s Friday night showdown with the Rockies if they want a better chance to see a home victory.
