Stop me if you've heard this before: The Orioles are not expected to live up to last season's heights.
One year after the club flouted predictions of a last-place finish in the American League East and came achingly close to the AL Division Series, a Nevada sportsbook has the Orioles falling short of their 89-win mark in 2016.
Reno's Atlantis Casino released projected win totals for this baseball season, the first sportsbook to do so, and there's no "Orioles Magic" expected in Baltimore this year.
The over-under for wins is 84.5 — behind the Boston Red Sox's 90.5 and Toronto Blue Jays' 86.5, and ahead of the New York Yankees' 83.5 and Tampa Bay Rays' 75.5.
The World Series champion Chicago Cubs lead the way with 95.5, while the Washington Nationals are fourth overall (90.5).
