  • The Kansas City Royals and Detroit Tigers are also are in for another rough season with 90 plus losses looming

When the Major League Baseball season starts, it’s usually all about who is going to be the best in each division and ultimately win the World Series.

However, not every team can be a winner. New betting odds point to the Baltimore Orioles and Miami Marlins as the favorites to lose the most games in 2019.

Orioles Will Suffer from Exit of Veterans

Manny Machado was dealt from the Orioles to the Dodgers mid-season, but he wasn’t the only player who has left Baltimore over the past 12 months.


Second baseman Jonathan Schoop was dealt to Milwaukee, closer Zach Britton went to the Yankees, and free agent Tim Beckham signed with the Mariners in early January. The bad news is Baltimore will have to lean heavily on players like Chris Davis, who hit only .168 in 470 bats. They don’t have many bright spots coming soon either as outfielder Yusniel Diaz likely won’t be a full time player in the bigs until 2020.

Miami is Still Stuck in a Rebuild

The Miami Marlins are another team projected to lose 100 games as well. Their starting pitching is bad, and their hitters are average, at best. Starlin Castro is the only player who may be of note, and he is a late round fantasy pick if you need to fill out your roster.

Miami’s pen isn’t much better with the highest bullpen ERA in baseball. They don’t have much in the way of prospects coming either and look to be a bad team for the foreseeable future.

Tigers and Royals the Worst of a Weak AL Central

With the big contract of Miguel Cabrera on the books and a thin lineup and prospect pool, the Tigers lost 98 games the past two seasons and things don’t look much better again. Cabrera is aging and was often injured in 2018. Other than Nicholas Castellanos, it does not look good in Detroit. If they lost 100 games it would not be a surprise.

For the Royals, we are only a few short years removed from a World Series title, but it seems like ages ago. Their once prized bullpen was the worst in the American League with an era of 5.04.

Pick: The Orioles (+240) are a great bet with the Marlins (+275) close on their heels.
