The Arizona Diamondbacks and the New York Yankees will meet in a rematch of the 2001 World Series this week in Phoenix from Chase Field starting this Monday on the YES Network. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Yankees vs Diamondbacks Prediction.

New York Yankees Preview

New York enters at 4-0 after sweeping Houston in Texas. to Seattle last night, 1-0. The Yankees flexed their muscles by sweeping a talented Astros squad, and they’ll look to bring that swagger into the desert this week versus the Diamondbacks. New York is batting .273, while scoring 4.2 runs per game, with a team ERA of 2.00.

Yanks Projected Starter

Luis Gil (0-0, 0.00 ERA) is set to open the game for New York. The third-year pitcher missed most of the 2023 campaign with an injury, and it’s unclear how deep he’ll pitch into this contest. 

New York’s Player Props

  • Juan Soto had quite the debut in the pinstripes last week, and after totaling multiple hits in the final three games, he’s hitting .529, with a home run and 4 RBI. 
  • Oswaldo Cabrera came out on fire as well, and after a productive three-game stretch to open the season, he’s tallied 6 RBI, with a .438 batting average. 
  • Aaron Judge produced a run in the game four win over Houston, but he’s batting just .125 thus far. 
  • Giancarlo Stanton has totaled multiple bases in his last two appearances, and he’s hitting .214.  
  • Anthony Volpe recorded a hit in three first three matchups with Houston, and he’s posting splits of .400/1/2.

Arizona Diamondbacks Preview

Arizona enters at 3-1 after taking three of four from Colorado. The Diamondbacks looked good in their divisional series with the Rockies to open the season, and they’ll have to maintain the same energy with a rejuvenated Yankees group coming in this week. Arizona is batting .333, while scoring 7.3 runs per game, with a team ERA of 3.50.

D’Backs Projected Starter

Ryne Nelson (0-0, 0.00 ERA) will get the ball for Arizona. The Oregon product delivered mixed results during his rookie season, posting a 8-8 record, with a 5.31 ERA, and 96 strikeouts. Nelson did manage to put together a gem in his World Series start versus Texas, and there’s hope he can build on that performance heading into the season. 

Arizona’s Player Props

  • Ketel Marte has scored at least one run in each of the Diamondbacks' last four games.
  • Christian Walker has recorded at least one total base in each of the Diamondbacks' last eight home games.
  • Lourdes Gurriel Jr. has recorded at least one RBI in each of the Diamondbacks' last four home games.

New York’s Team Facts 

  • The Yankees have trailed after 3 innings in each of their last three games as favorites.

Arizona’s Team Facts

  • The Diamondbacks have led after 3 innings in five of their last six games as home underdogs against AL East opponents.

New York vs Arizona Trends

  • NYY is 4-0 against the spread, with a 1-2-1 O/U record.
  • ARZ is 3-1 ATS, with a 3-1 over/under record.  

Yankees vs Diamondbacks Prediction 

I can honestly say baseball feels different when there’s a buzz in the Bronx, as the Yankees look like the real deal after sweeping the Astros in Houston, but Arizona has the bats to compete, and there’s a chance they slow the visitors down this week. As we saw in the playoffs last Fall, this D’Backs team can swing with the best of them, and if Ryne Nelson can keep things within reach early, they have a shot to take game one. Let’s see if the hosts bring the fight Monday night, and spot Arizona the runs for this interleague battle.
