The Arizona Diamondbacks last won the World Series in 2001 and haven’t made the playoffs since 2017, when they lost in the National League Division Series. Arizona baseball fans, however, aren’t deterred.

Not only will they be able to bet right from their seats thanks to legal and regulated sportsbook apps, but also at Caesars Sportsbook, which will be adjacent to the home of the Diamondbacks, Chase Field.

Betting on baseball can be extremely fun and exciting. There are so many different options of what you can wager on. There are bets that focus on who wins, of course, but you can also wager on runs. There are even tons of prop bets and individual player bets as well. In this section, we will discuss most of the bets that you can place on the Diamondbacks or any MLB team.
A moneyline wager is the most basic type of wager an individual can place. A moneyline wager simply means that you wager on the team you believe will straight up win the game. Moneyline wagers will always feature a team that is a favorite and one that is an underdog. The favorite will typically have negative (-) odds, while the underdog will have positive (+) odds.
For this example, the Diamondbacks are the favorites to win, while the Rockies are the underdogs. Basically, if you wagered $180 on the Diamondbacks and they won, you would win $100. This is because they are the favorites. Oppositely if you placed $100 on the Rockies and they won, you would win $210.
Runline wagers are common in baseball, but not as much as spread betting in other sports. Regardless, this is still a solid bet type that you will see. A runline wager is basically a way to make a moneyline wager fairer for bettors. This is done by setting a spread between the two teams. This allows the odds to even out at typically -110 for each side. There is still a favorite and underdog, but the odds are just even now. The favorite will have runs removed from their final score, and those runs will be added to the underdog’s final score.
In this example, the Diamondbacks are favored by 1.5 runs. This means that if you were to wager on the Diamondbacks, they would need to win by two runs for the wager to win. This can be difficult because you are no longer looking for an outright winner. You just need to beat the spread.
Totals betting is one of the most exciting ways to wager on baseball. Considering baseball is a game that is hard to determine winners night in and night out, betting on totals is highly popular with sports bettors. Essentially when you place a totals wager, you are betting on whether the total score of a game will be over or under the line set by the sportsbook. These types of wagers typically have -110 odds on each side.
For this wager, the sportsbook has set the line at 7. This means that you will have to choose whether to wager on the final score of the game is over or under seven runs. In the event that the final total score is 7, then it would be a push, and you would receive your wager back.
Prop betting is wildly popular in MLB betting circles. This is because there are so many options of different wager types you can place. Here are just a few examples:
There are also several other types of prop bets, so be sure to check with your preferred sportsbook to see all of your options.
Live betting is one of the best features of mobile betting. It allows you to literally place wagers in the middle of the action. You can watch a game and place wagers on what you believe will happen next. It is important to note that odds are constantly changing when live betting. Also, you can typically only place wagers before an inning begins, during the middle inning shift, and after an inning has ended.
There are several types of wagers you can live bet on MLB games, so here are some popular ones:
Futures bets are pretty different from all the other bets types we have listed here. These bets are wagers placed on events that will happen in the future. They typically take weeks or months to complete, but they are a ton of fun. They also work kind of differently as even though there are favorites, every wager will still have positive odds, at least until a certain point in the season.
Player futures are also a big part of MLB betting at Arizona sportsbooks. These will typically focus on accolades a player could potentially receive at the end of the season. Here are some potential examples:
Baseball has a tradition of managers who help create a winning, or sometimes losing, atmosphere in their ball clubs. For the Diamondbacks, they’ve been trying to find the right combination of manager and coaches to get that winning formula underway. Here is the staff for 2021:
The Diamondbacks, in the larger scope of the history of Major League Baseball, are a young team. They played their first game in 1998 and since that time have had just a handful of managers running the clubhouse.
Here are all the managers the Arizona Diamondbacks have had since they first stepped onto the field.
The Arizona Diamondbacks have called the same stadium home since they first began playing in 1998. The field, originally known as Bank One Ballpark before changing its name to Chase Field, opened on March 31, 1998, as the brand-new Diamondbacks hosted the Colorado Rockies.
Not everyone can get out to the ballpark and watch the D-backs in person every game of the season. Thankfully, there are options for watching and listening to the games, even if you’re stuck in traffic.
The primary Diamondbacks broadcast is on FOX Sports Arizona, which is available in many Arizona cable packages, but can also be found on Hulu Live, AT&T Now and YouTube TV, for folks who have cut the cord.
You can also live stream MLB games through MLB.tv. The service streams out-of-market games for every team in the league. The only problem is, if you’re within what MLB considers the team’s “home region,” you’ll likely be subject to blackouts for that team’s games.
There are ways to still watch the D-backs on that platform. A little bit of internet sleuthing will help you if you’re interested in taking that route.
However, if you cannot watch the Diamondbacks, you can always listen to them on the radio. Here are the stations in Arizona that broadcast the games:

If you’re watching the Diamondbacks on television, you’ll likely hear the team of Steve Berthiaume (play-by-play) and Bob Brenly (analyst). On the radio, you’ll hear Greg Schulte (play-by-play), Tom Candiotti (analyst) and Mike Ferrin (analyst) on the English-language broadcast, while Oscar Soria (play-by-play) and Rodrigo Lopez (analyst) are on the Spanish-language coverage.
The Diamondbacks may be one of the youngest teams in Major League Baseball, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t built themselves up a nice little history. In fact, in the earliest years of D-backs baseball, the team provided some thrills, winning its division several times over, along with the NLCS and a World Series.
Here’s a quick breakdown:
According to Diamondbacks CEO Derrick Hall, the team plans both to open a sportsbook outside of Chase Field and launch a sports betting app. Hall indicated the sportsbook will be a sports bar with betting windows where patrons will be able to place wagers.
In May 2021, the Diamondbacks found their sports betting partner in Caesars. The company, which also finalized an agreement to be an authorized gaming operator of Major League Baseball, will launch a betting app in the state and open a retail sportsbook on the plaza near Chase Field.
The brick-and-mortar space, sitting at what was once Game Seven Grill, will feature a state-of-the-art sportsbook, sports bar, and broadcast studio. Caesars’ betting app also will allow customers to accrue credits through its Caesars Rewards loyalty program and redeem them for things like food and beverage, entertainment, and VIP experiences at Chase Field.
The sportsbook will likely resemble ones planned for other MLB parks in states with legal sports betting. The Washington Nationals and BetMGM partnered to open one at Nationals Park in 2021. Meanwhile, the Chicago Cubs and DraftKings also plan to open a sportsbook at Wrigley Field by 2022.
Teams are moving in this direction because MLB allows them to host actual retail sportsbooks at their stadiums.
The new law authorizes mobile sports betting, and the Arizona Diamondbacks do plan to offer their own online sports betting app through Caesars.
The app will be available statewide and will employ geolocation technology to ensure bettors are located within Arizona when they place their wagers.
As for when that app will go live, that all depends on a few factors.
Given the state’s need to create and establish sports betting regulations, it will likely take at least a few months for the Diamondbacks to launch a sportsbook. Realistically, no sportsbooks, mobile or retail, will be ready to launch before fall 2021 at the earliest.
That said, the Arizona Diamondbacks could be in a good position to be among the first to roll out a sportsbook app in the state.
If true, expect to see the Diamondbacks push for opening its retail sportsbook at Chase Field and getting its Caesars betting app live by the end of 2021.
Again, though, it all depends on how quickly the state’s sports betting timeline plays out.
Yes. In fact, in Arizona’s early years in MLB, Randy Johnson dominated the award, winning it in 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002. He was the co-MVP of the 2001 World Series, as well. In addition, Brandon Webb won the Cy Young in 2006.
No, not in the regular season. In 2001, Craig Counsell won the National League Championship Series MVP award, while Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling shared World Series MVP honors.
Arizona has one World Series title to its name, which came in the 2001 season when the Diamondbacks defeated the New York Yankees. It took all seven games, but they won, 4-3.
Yes, most major sportsbooks allow customers to make a variety of in-game bets on baseball games. Baseball is unique in that you can bet on nearly anything. To name a few, you can make bets on the outcome of the next at bat, winner of the inning or whether or not the next pitch will be a ball or a strike.
