Arizona Diamondbacks Futures Bets: 2021 Team & Player Props
Player Props & Futures
NL Cy Young
- Zac Gallen (+5000) (Bet365)
Zac Gallen To Win 2021 NL Cy Young
Bet $20, Payout $1020
Gallen is coming off an impressive season where he posted a 2.75 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with a 28.2 K% in 72 innings. This is a 25-year old pitcher who has performed at a high level in each of his two half-seasons in the big leagues. Gallen boasts an impressive arsenal, including a four-seamer that averages 93 MPH along with a changeup and curveball as put-away pitches.
While we can’t expect as much volume as other NL aces like Jacob deGrom, Trevor Bauer, Max Scherzer and Aaron Nola, the price is too enticing to pass up. It’s in Gallen’s range of outcomes to put up a sub-2.50 ERA with a strong WHIP, which could put him in contention for the Cy Young. The D-Backs will need to be a surprising team for this to pan out, but I can’t pass up this value.
Arizona Diamondbacks Futures Bets: 2021 Team Props
OVER 75.5 Wins (-110) (BetMGM)
Arizona Diamondbacks To Win Over 75.5 Games in 2021
Bet $20, Payout $38
The D-Backs aren’t likely to make the playoffs this season, but 75.5 wins is a low bar, especially for an offense that really underachieved last season. This team has a budding ace in Gallen along with talented players like Ketel Marte in their lineup.
The offense ranked 26th in wRC+ last season, but several of their hitters underperformed in the shortened season, including Marte, Eduardo Escobar and Christian Walker. With some positive regression, this lineup could improve to a Top-20 unit in MLB.
Their pitching is led by Gallen, but we could see a bounce-back season from veteran Madison Bumgarner, who was abysmal last year. We can give MadBum a mulligan in a season characterized by disruptions in routine. He showed improved velocity down the stretch and is likely to return to form as a dependable innings-eater. The back-end of the rotation has some potential with Luke Weaver, Merrill Kelly and Caleb Smith.
The team added veteran Joakim Soria to help shore up the back-end of a bullpen that posted a 4.84 ERA last season (20th). It’s likely that they’ll remain a mediocre unit in 2021, but this team should be able to win 75+ games with improvements on offense and starting pitching.
