Pick: DBacks ML (+105) 

The New York Yankees and the Arizona Diamondbacks will open up this series on Monday night. Both of these teams have gotten off the fast starts throughout the first four games of the MLB season. As the New York Yankees are coming off of a sweep of the Houston Astros and the Arizona Diamondbacks are coming off of a series where they took three out of four from the Colorado Rockies. Now they will cross paths for the first time this season and both teams will look to continue their respectable start to the 2024 Major League Baseball season with a series opening victory.

The New York Yankees are off to a fast start this season, and they will look to keep the momentum rolling here on Monday in Arizona. As New York will continue their road trip throughout the southwest, and they will look to remain undefeated on the season with a fifth consecutive victory here in this one. It was an incredible start to the season as they picked up multiple come from behind victories late in the game against a dominant Houston Astros team over the weekend. If it is a sign of things to come for the New York Yankees, this year might finally be the year that they return to the top of the baseball mountain. 

It was yet another come from behind victory for New York on Sunday as they put up a run in the top of the ninth to go ahead for good. They will look to jump out in front this time around against Arizona as they cannot maintain this pace from behind much longer. This New York Yankees lineup has the ability to be one of the most dangerous lineups in baseball this season, as they are loaded with some of the best hitters in the game. They will further look to prove that to be true in a hitters park down in Arizona here on Monday night and throughout the entirety of this series.

Despite losing one out of their opening four game weekend series of the Colorado Rockies, the Arizona Diamondbacks are off to a fast start this season. They will look to keep them a minimum rolling when they welcome in the New York Yankees here on Monday night as they look to improve their record at home and build on their first three victories of the season. They got the job done with a steady mix of solid hitting and timely pitching throughout the weekend against the Colorado Rockies. Arizona put up some fantastic, hitting displays throughout their four game series with the Colorado Rockies and that is something they will look to replicate against the New York Yankees as well. 

However, they will need to clean up some of their mistakes on the mound if they want to be successful against the Yankees this week. Although, the competition will be much tougher this time around as the New York Yankees have a much better lineup coming to Chase Field during the week. Arizona’s pitching staff will need to find a way to shut down guys like Aaron Judge and Juan Soto if they want to be successful throughout this series against the New York Yankees. Ryne Nelson will be making his first start of the season here on Monday night and he has a tough task ahead of him here in this one. Last season he posted an 8-8 record in 27 starts and that is something he will look to improve upon this year. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Arizona is 3-1 at home so far this year

- New York was 40-41 away from home last year 

- New York was 23-23 against the NL last year

I expect this to be a solid back-and-forth ball game on Monday night to open up this series between the New York Yankees and the Arizona Diamondbacks. I can easily see this game coming down to the bottom of the ninth inning, but in the end I do look for the Arizona Diamondbacks to grab the victory at home to open up the series against the Yankees. As I look for this one to go back-and-forth throughout the entirety of the contest, but I do expect Arizona to defend their home field for the fourth time this season.
