MLB Odds: Overachieving Orioles Roll Into Interleague Set

Betting on Baltimore Orioles Baseball



Two months into the 2012 Major League Baseball season and the Baltimore Orioles remain at the top of the American League East division. This Friday, despite a glaring lack of credit on the MLB odds, the O’s will play host to an interleague threat that until this year would have been considered overwhelming favorites.

Have we arrived at a time when the Baltimore Orioles can truly overpower contending teams like the Philadelphia Phillies? Not necessarily. According to World Series futures, the O’s have just 50/1 odds of winning the championship this season. The Phillies, in contrast, dead last in the NL East, sit at 14/1 on those same MLB odds.


When the two clubs square off in a three-game set this weekend all eyes will be on how the unpredictable Orioles line up against the struggling, but legitimate contenders from Philly. If a playoff berth is in the card for Baltimore, they’ll have to capitalize on opportunities like this – the trailing Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees sure would.


Can Philadelphia use the road series to gain some ground on their own division rivals? Months remain before any the regular season winds to a close, but it’s a long drop from the top if the MLB betting community ever loses faith in them.
