The Nationals have been underdogs in MLB betting odds a lot of this season and that is not likely to change in this series at Arizona.
MLB odds trends are not in favor the Nationals in this series. Before this series began yesterday they had lost 7 of the last 10 against the Diamondbacks and they were 2-4 in the last six at Arizona. The teams met in a three game series last year in Arizona and the Diamondbacks won two of the three. They won 4-0 and 5-0 while losing 7-4 as MLB odds results indicate.
Washington was a disaster early this season in MLB odds but they have been better recently. Many gamblers still look to avoid the Nats on a regular basis in MLB betting odds but there are some signs of life for Washington. Adam Dunn and Ryan Zimmerman can both impact MLB betting odds and the Nationals do have some young talent. They definitely need more pitching though if they are to be serious contenders in MLB odds on a regular basis.
Arizona might actually be the more disappointing team in MLB odds. Nothing was expected of the Nationals but the Diamondbacks were supposed to be good. So far they have not been. Their offense has been really bad, ranking right near the bottom of the league as MLB betting odds numbers show. Arizona really needs Justin Upton to get going offensively and they probably need to pick up another player by way of trade. Their pitching has been okay as MLB odds statistics indicate but it was supposed to be great. Dan Haren and Doug Davis have looked solid but Brandon Webb still looks hurt and the rest of the rotation is weak.
Six of the last ten games between the two teams have gone under the MLB odds total but the over/under numbers are 3-3 in the last six games at Arizona. It is sometimes difficult to predict totals in Arizona versus the MLB odds since the roof being open or closed can make a big difference.
