The Baltimore Orioles betting odds are not looking great this year. The rest of the division was better than them last year, and the O’s haven’t done much to bolster their status or their standings. Their division has been openly criticised for having a lack of deep starting pitching rotations, and Baltimore is no different. However, if you want to bet on the Birds, they can still put a scare on any of the top teams in baseball. Chris Tillman is the lone bright spot in their starting rotation.
So if you’re going to bet on a Baltimore win, he’s the horse to put your money on. Also, if you’re looking to play the over-under game, this team is poised to give up a lot of runs this season.

Baltimore Orioles Betting
As we’ve stated, the outlook is less than spectacular for Baltimore Orioles Betting this season. The Toronto Blue Jays, Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees all have stronger teams, and will likely have better records.
At the offensive end, they have decent hitting in Chris Davis and catcher Matt Wieters. Their lineup also boasts Manny Machado, center fielder Adam Jones and second baseman Jonathan Schoop. They have also added newcomers Mark Trumbo and Pedro Alvarez. All solid, but not enough pop to win them a division or wild card.
At the other end, we’ve already talked about their lack of pitching. This is going to hurt them, as they play the bulk of their games against power-hitting teams like the Blue Jays, The Yankees, and the Red Sox. The starting rotation isn’t going to scare anyone.
The bullpen’s Darren O'Day along with closer Zach Britton are an amazing one-two bullpen punch, but can’t help you in the early innings.
Always remember, when betting on baseball take a good long look at the pitching matchup, the injuries, and trends. Because the first place team in a division isn’t actually much better than the last place team, most years. So, if a division leading team is playing a 3 game series with the last place team, it’s very likely the cellar-dweller will win at least 1 of those games. So place your bets with that in mind.
