Arizona Diamondbacks Betting Preview
The Arizona Diamondbacks had a dismal 2021 season, racking up 110 losses. They managed to go an unfathomable 10-31 in one-run games last season, but even if that evens out somewhat, they are going to be in for another tough year in 2022. The only question is how poorly things will go in Arizona again this year.
Arizona did not make many meaningful changes from last year’s team, as this season is going to be one in what appears to be a more long-term rebuilding process. In a division with several elite offensive teams, the pitching numbers are likely to get ugly once again in Arizona. But the expectations are set pretty low at most Arizona sportsbooks for the Diamondbacks, their season win total is certainly in play.

Key Additions: Mark Melancon
Key Departures: None
The Diamondbacks were bad offensively and with their pitching last season, which makes improving their roster such a difficult task. But it is impossible to improve a roster without making any kind of meaningful movement, which the Diamondbacks failed to do here. As a result, things are likely to be incredibly tough on the current roster in Arizona again this year following their 110-loss campaign.
Arizona has the eighth-lowest payroll in Major League Baseball coming into this season, and are one of 10 teams that have spent under $100 million on their roster. That signifies a lack of willingness to improve things from a management perspective. While Mark Melancon had a very strong 2021 season for the Padres, the Diamondbacks might not be able to get him the ball in enough save situations for that acquisition to matter.

Offensively, the Diamondbacks struggled to hit for average or power last season. They were a bottom-10 team in the league in runs scored, and bottom-five in batting average and home runs. Only Arizona and the Pittsburgh Pirates hit fewer than 150 home runs in 2021, and there is little reason to believe that they will enjoy any sort of radical turnaround in either of those departments this season.
The Diamondbacks were decent at drawing walks last season, finishing in the middle of the pack in that department. But unless the plan is to draw enough walks each inning to walk in several runs at a time, the Diamondbacks are going to need to find a way to generate some offense of their own.

Somehow, the pitching situation for the Diamondbacks was even worse than their offensive output in 2021. They were in the bottom-three in most major statistical categories, and their approach to fixing those issues seems a little myopic. While Melancon will help them on the back end, their pitching staff is broken to the point that they are unlikely to get him enough save situations to make that move worthwhile.
Interesting here is that the Diamondbacks were decent in the walks department with their pitching staff, just like they were on offense. But they were simply hit hard, giving up 232 home runs to finish in a tie for the fifth-worst total in that regard. Even if they give up fewer hard hit balls in late game situations, the Diamondbacks’ staff is still likely to be a disaster in 2022.

Positives & Negatives
The list of positives for the Arizona Diamondbacks is a short one, as there are few bright spots to look forward to. Eduardo Escobar is an interesting player at third base, while the addition of Melancon and the potential for a bounce-back for Madison Bumgarner could help the pitching staff. But there is not a whole lot else to like about the Diamondbacks this season.
There are a ton of negatives for the Diamondbacks, though, as they are again expected to be one of the worst teams in Major League Baseball. Their team ERA should be around 5.00 again this year, as their offense continues to lack the impact players necessary to lift them anywhere near the top-three teams in their division.
Arizona Diamondbacks Pick & Prediction: Under 67.5
It would be hard for the Arizona Diamondbacks to be much worse than they were last season, but a 15-game improvement seems like too much to ask from them. Statistically they are likely to improve in one-run games this year, but that is not likely to be enough to drop them all the way to 95 or fewer losses. Take the under here and expect the Diamondbacks to get picked apart by the rest of the NL West.
