Baltimore Orioles on Baseball Odds History

The Orioles inaugural baseball gambling season in Baltimore was in 1954 and while they were a flop on the field.

It would take a few more baseball gambling seasons but Baltimore was soon to play host to a baseball powerhouse and several baseball gambling World Series.

The breakout baseball gambling season for Baltimore was 1966 when Hall of Famer Frank Robinson won the American League Most Valuable Player AND the Triple Crown leading the Birds into the baseball gambling World Series, where they swept the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Midway through the 1968 baseball gambling season, Earl Weaver took over as manager and the Orioles were ready to fly high with the baseball odds. Weaver, armed with a phenomenal starting rotation led by Jim Palmer, Dave McNally, and Mike Cuellar led the Orioles to a smashing 109-53 baseball odds record. The Orioles swept Minnesota in the ALCS before losing the baseball gambling World Series to the miracle Mets. The 1969 Orioles, however, set a precedent of things to come with their superior pitching, along with an outstanding lineup led by legends such as powerful Boog Powell, and slick fielding third baseman Brooks Robinson, who stole the 1970 baseball gambling World Series with his glove as the Orioles bested the Reds. Palmer, McNally, Cuellar, along with Pat Dobson, EACH won 20 games in that 1970 baseball gambling world championship season! Baltimore’s third consecutive World Series appearance ended in defeat to Pittsburgh in 1971, but the Orioles would return to post season in 1973 and 1974, losing the ALCS to Oakland.

A new group of Orioles reemerged as American League champions in 1979 baseball gambling season before losing a tough 7-game World Series to Pittsburgh. In 1982, a rookie named Cal Ripken went 3-5 with a homer on opening day and would not miss a game during the next sixteen baseball odds seasons. Weaver, one of the greatest managers in baseball history, retired at that season’s conclusion.

New manager Joe Altobelli led the Orioles to the 1983 World Series title over Philadelphia. Baltimore did have an embarrassing note of futility when they lost their first 21 games of the 1988 baseball gambling season.

In 1992, the Orioles moved into Camden Yards, which is one of baseball’s most revered ball yards to this day. While they have not been able to play to the level of their home, Orioles fans turn up in large numbers to enjoy the ambience if nothing else.
