MLB odds handicappers do not expect much from the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2011 as they are a rebuilding team in the National League with the MLB betting odds.

The Arizona Diamondbacks will host the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night with a starting time of 8:40 PM ET.  Be sure and open your Sports Gambling account for side and total odds on this inter-league exhibition game.

Arizona was off to a slow start to the exhibition season with a MLB betting mark of 3-7.  Kirk Gibson, the hero of the 1988 World Series with the Los Angeles Dodgers, is in his first season as manager.  Paul Goldschmidt was off to a great start in impressing his new manager as he was hitting .462 with 3 doubles, 1 home run, and 6 runs batted in.

AJ Pollock was another Diamondback that arrived ready for action as he was hitting .471 with 2 doubles, 5 runs scored, and 1 run batted in.  Justin Upton was also in good form as he was hitting .444 with 1 double, 1 home run, and 4 runs batted in.

Mike Hampton threw 3 shutout innings from the mound and Aaron Hellman was even more impressive with 5 shutout innings to begin exhibition action.  The Diamondbacks are a very young team that is in the initial stages of rebuilding and will juggle the lineup and pitching rotation quite a bit during exhibition action.

The Chicago White Sox were sleepwalking through the initial stages of the MLB baseball betting exhibition season with just 1 win in their first 6 games.  Brent Morel was awake however with a .429 batting average to start exhibition play and had 2 doubles with 3 runs scored.

Omar Vizquel was also in good form with a .429 average with 1 run and 1 run batted in. Mark Buehrle was yet to allow a run on the hill but Tony Pena was rocked for 2 earned runs in 3 innings of work.

The White Sox were a +1800 choice at Sports-Gambling to win the 2011 World Series while the Diamondbacks were a +6500 selection with the MLB odds to win the World Series title in October.
