Baltimore Orioles Betting Preview
The Baltimore Orioles were one of the worst teams in Major League Baseball in 2021, and are expected to be in the discussion for that dubious distinction once again. Going into last season, the Orioles at least had some advanced metrics on their side that suggested that they were poised for some form of improvement. Those signs of potential improvement did not result in success on the field, though, and the Orioles have no such signs of hope this time around.
Instead, the Orioles will simply need to prove their doubters (of which there are many) wrong with their play on the field. Baltimore has not made any massive moves to improve their roster, which will serve as a substantial hurdle in attempting to achieve that goal. But the games are not played on paper, as they say, and the Orioles will look to exceed their low expectations as Brandon Hyde looks to get more out of his team than he has during the first three years of his managerial tenure.

Baltimore Orioles Betting Picks, Predictions & News
Key Additions: Rougned Odor
Key Departures: None
The Baltimore Orioles largely stood pat this offseason, as has been the case in the recent past. They are not looking to spend much on building up their roster, as the cost of buying their way to competitiveness in the best division in baseball would be astronomical. Bringing in Rougned Odor is interesting, as they take him away from the rival Yankees. But Odor is far from sufficient to bring this team to any sort of marked improvement.
Baltimore had the worst run differential in Major League Baseball last season by a sizable margin, making it a surprise that they did not go out and get any sort of meaningful pitching reinforcements. Jordan Lyle comes in on a one-year, $7 million deal, but he had an ERA over 5.00 last season and is unlikely to make a huge difference for the league’s worst team.
|Batting Average (BA)||.258 (7th)||.239 (19th)|
|On-Base Percentage (OBP)||.321 (16th)||.304 (26th)|
|Slugging Percentage (SLG)||.429 (13th)||.402 (20th)|
|Weighted On-Base Avg (wOBA)||.323 (14th)||.305 (24th)|
|Weighted Runs Created Plus (wRC+)||104 (13th)||91 (T-23rd)|
|Batting Avg on Balls In Play (BABIP)||.309 (8th)||.290 (18th)|
|Strikeout Percentage (K%)||22.9% (12th)||24.3% (7th)|
|Walk Percentage (BB%)||7.3% (28th)||7.5% (28th)|
Nearly every last one of these numbers saw a decline for the Orioles in 2021 compared to their 2020 outputs, with the exception being a slightly increased walk rate. This was caused in part by teams going from playing two-thirds of their games against division opponents in 2020 to a schedule with far more variety in 2021. But other teams were able to make that adjustment in a way that the Orioles could not.
The question coming into this season is whether or not the existing talent on this roster can produce more than they did a year ago. Trey Mancini and Cedric Mullins are both stars in the making, but the overall quality of the Baltimore lineup was only good for the fifth-worst run total in the league last year. With the deeper fences at Oriole Park set to come into play, the Orioles could be hurt offensively just as much as they benefit defensively.

While the offense for the Orioles was far from impressive in 2021, it was their pitching that really let them down last season. They were the worst team in the league in terms of runs allowed, coming up just short of conceding 1,000 runs for the season. This year, they are hoping that the pitching improves, while the changes to the field dimensions help the pitchers for the Orioles as well.
John Means was a respectable starter for the Orioles a season ago, with an ERA of 3.62. But the starting staff for the Orioles as a whole had an ERA of 5.99, while their bullpen had a 5.70 ERA. Barring John Means being cloned several times by the Orioles organization, it will take some serious steps forward from someone in the Baltimore rotation for this team to develop something resembling a decent pitching staff.
Positives & Negatives
Despite all of the issues with this team, there are some positives to be found in the form of players like Means, Mancini, and Mullins. Unfortunately for the Orioles, baseball is not a sport where a few individual bright spots can carry a team to a winning season, as the Los Angeles Angels can confirm. But there are at least a few compelling players to keep an eye on in Baltimore, even if the season is not expected to end in anything but disaster.
On the negative side, the pitching staff for Baltimore is just alarmingly bad. While moving the fences back in left field could help them avoid giving up the 258 home runs they gave up last season, the actual arms on the mound have not inspired much confidence that they are going to use that extra space to give up fewer runs.
Baltimore Orioles Win Total Pick & Prediction
Baltimore Orioles Pick & Prediction: Under 62.5 Wins
The season win total for the Orioles this season is basically asking whether or not the team will record 100 or more losses this season. That kind of loss total requires a massive amount of ineptitude, but the Orioles have proven that they are more than capable of those kinds of struggles. This year, there is no reason to believe that the Orioles are going to improve their win total by 11 games to hit the over here.
Baltimore plays in the toughest division in baseball, which means a ton of games against teams like the Blue Jays, Yankees, and Rays that are expected to be in the championship chase in 2022. That will not do them any favors, but bettors should not expect the Orioles to take advantage of the portion of their schedule that takes place outside of the division either. Take the under for the Orioles this year, and avoid the insanity that comes with cheering for the worst team in baseball for a full season.
