2011 Diamondbacks, Against The Odds

Here is a look at how the Diamondbacks 2011 actual results stacked up compared to what the Vegas odds makers thought of them throughout the season.  If you take the win Vegas win expectancy from all 162 of the Diamondbacks games and add them up, you get a seasonal win expectancy of 0.4969 which translates to an expected win total of 80.49 games.  If you do the same for my simulation of each Diamondbacks game you get a seasonal win expectancy of 0.4837 or 78.37 wins.  The Diamondbacks actually went 94-68 on the season.  Neither Vegas or the simulator were able to pick up on the Diamondbacks as a 94 win team.  Below is a list of all 162 games with the Vegas odds for every game, the list is sorted by games in which the Diamondbacks were the largest favorite to win.
