D-Backs' Season Forecast Changes

Sportsline not only has a pick on every game and line our Experts provide winning Daily Fantasy Optimal Lineups every day.

SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: B-

At 26-25 the D-Backs are exceeding expectations. The combined projected win total based on per game money lines is 24.4 wins. If you consider winning as a clear-cut underdog or winning by 2+ as a slight favorite, or by 5+ as a favorite then they have 19 good wins vs 8 bad losses. They have been better than expected on the road. Their 15-12- road record is +13% better than their expected win percentage. Over the past 3 weeks they have played poorly going 8-12, 40%. The D-Backs should be a slightly above average team based on simulations where they won 52.1% of the simulations played vs every other team as if they were playing on a neutral court with players available in the playoffs (#11 in the league). They have moved up from #18 in the league back on 3/27.

Their record should be better. Their average run differential is +0.76 which ranks #3 in the NL, but their rank based on win percentage is #8. This is a relatively better road team than a home team. They are the #2 ranked team in run differential in road games, vs #5 in home games. Their average run differential in their past 12 games is +1.83 which ranks them #2 over this stretch, slightly better than overall.
