Baltimore Orioles Betting

There was a time when the Baltimore Orioles were the gold standard of Major League Baseball. From 1969 through 1973 the O’s were loaded with pitching and power hitting that put them into the playoffs five out of six years with three consecutive American League pennants from 1969-1971. Modern times have not been nearly as good for Baltimore with just three playoff appearances since 1998 with the last coming as a 2015 wild card team. Previous manager Buck Showalter returned the O’s to respectability with three playoff appearances between 2012 and 2016. However, Baltimore decided to gut payroll and blow up the team afterwards. In particular the past two years have been an unmitigated disaster. Attendance has been cut nearly in half and gamblers avoid this team like the plague. While players such as Trey Mancini and Renato Nunez offer signs of hope a return to contender status is unlikely for 2020.

2020 Season Preview

The 2019 season went exactly as expected for the Orioles. They were picked to be one of the worst teams in Major League Baseball and proved to be so. Although Baltimore finished well into the red, they did not lose nearly as much money on the board compared to the 2018 season. That is because the oddsmakers have the Orioles listed as such huge underdogs that a single win can offset several losses. By contrast a gambling loss on a big favorite against the Orioles can bust a bankroll for several weeks.

The Orioles are a team that had few redeeming qualities in 2019 as they finished 22nd for run production, 30th for earned run average, 26th for quality starts, 29th for bullpen ERA, and 25th for fielding.

Entering the 2020 season Baltimore ranks 29th out of the 30 major league team for total team payroll. Only the Tampa Bay Rays spend less.

Manager Brandon Hyde took his expected beating last year with a young and rebuilding roster. He was a coach under manager Joe Maddon with the Chicago Cubs from 2014-2018. General manager Mike Elias learned his trade with the St. Louis Cardinals and Houston Astros from 2007-2018. Baltimore hired Hyde and Elias based in large part due to those connections to highly successful organizations. Elias is a believer in analytics and hired Sig Mejdal from the Astros to head up the number crunching.

Left hander John Means is expected to head the Baltimore rotation. Last year he was one of the few bright spots on the O’s with a record of 12-11, 3.60 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 121 strikeouts in 155 innings of work. It was his first full season in the big leagues.

Right hander Alex Cobb is expected to return from a nightmare 2019 season in which he suffered a back injury as well as having undergone knee and hip surgeries. Cobb is needed to anchor a young and struggling rotation.

Right hander Mychal Givens is projected to be default closer after saving 11 games and posting 86 strikeouts in 63 innings of work for 2019. He was 2-6 with a 4.57 ERA in 2019.

Former Texas Ranger Hanser Alberto impressed all in his first season as an Oriole and first campaign as a starting second baseman. Alberto hit .305 with an OPS of .751. Alberto clicked for 21 doubles, 12 home runs, and 51 RBI. Baltimore needs Cobb to return to his form of 2017 when he went 12-10 with a 3.66 ERA and a WHIP of 1.22 Right fielder Trey Mancini was another light at the end of a very dark tunnel. Mancini powered to 38 doubles, 35 home runs, and an OPS of .899. The third-year star hit .291 with 106 runs scored and 97 runs batted in.

Another man to watch with Baltimore is left fielder Anthony Santander. Last year the second-year starter hit .261 with 20 doubles, 20 home runs, 46 runs, and 59 runs batted in. Santander compiled an OPS of .772.

Baltimore has the added challenge of playing in the American League East, which could be the most difficult division in baseball. Consider the AL East includes the perennial contender New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays.
