Leyton Orient Odds

Like every football side currently playing professional football in England, Leyton Orient odds have become more popular amongst bettors in recent years. With League Two being a division well renowned for its unpredictability, even the most seasoned bettors find it tough to judge results in this league. With sides fighting relegation one season and challenging for promotion the next, Leyton Orient relegation odds are just as commonly bet on as odds on Leyton Orient to get promoted.

In big League Two clashes, such as a playoff game, or a match against rivals in a cup competition, Leyton Orient odds can be subject to a variety of bookmaker promotions. For instance, odds on Leyton Orient v Southend United can be offered as enhanced odds or the odds boosted, with bookmakers such as William Hill offering a range of price boosts often during the football season.

Odds based on ‘on-the-pitch’ activities are of course extremely popular, and many bookmakers also offer odds on what happens behind the scenes at football clubs as well. For example, Leyton Orient manager odds or Leyton Orient transfer odds can also be popular, offering more opportunities to make profit when betting on football.

History

Leyton Orient are a professional football club located in the district of Leyton in the Borough of Waltham Forest in Greater London. One of few clubs to have spent at least one season in every Football League division, Leyton Orient are currently members of the English fourth tier, League Two.

The history of Leyton Orient Football Club begins in 1881. Members of the local cricket club, the Glyn Cricket Club, founded the football club. Leyton Orient were first known as Eagle Cricket Club before changing its name in 1888 to Orient Football Club, 

The club has undergone numerous name changes throughout its history. The club name was changed to Clapham Orient in 1898 and then to Leyton Orient in 1937. In the 1960’s, the name changed to Orient, before reverting back to Leyton Orient in 1987.

Orient Football Club first played in the Clapham & District League, winning the title in the 1894/1895 season, before moving to the London League. In the Third Division, the club won two successive promotions, and the season of the club’s name change, to Clapham Orient, the club were playing in the London League First Division.

Clapham Orient were elected to the Football League in 1905, joining the Second Division. The club struggled initially, with five consecutive bottom half of the table finishes, before 1910/1911 saw an upturn in form. The following season, Clapham Orient won their second piece of silverware, winning the London Challenge Cup.

The Football League calendar was suspended for the duration of the First World War. When the Football League schedule resumed, Clapham Orient struggled. During the following nine seasons, the club only finished in the top half of the table once. This poor form led to the club’s first relegation. After finishing in 22nd place in the 1928/1929 season, Clapham Orient were demoted to the Third Division.

The club played in the Third Division South until the onset of Second World War. During this period, the club name changed from Clapham Orient to Leyton Orient. Following the resumption of competitive football after the Second World War was over, Leyton Orient continued their struggles in the Third Division South, coming close to relegation on a number of occasions.

However, the 1950’s saw an upturn in fortune for the club. A second place finish in the 1954/1955 season was followed by the club winning the Third Division South title in the season after, and Leyton Orient returned to the second tier of English football.

Following a series of mid table finishes in the Second Division, a second place finish in the 1961/1962 season was enough to send the club into the First Division for the first time in Leyton Orient history. Unfortunately for Leyton Orient, the club’s time in the top flight was short lived and they were relegated in their first season of top tier football.

Returning to the Second Division, the club suffered a further demotion three seasons later. Coinciding with the club back in the Third Division, Leyton Orient became Orient Football Club.

The first three seasons back in the third tier, Orient Football Club struggled. However, following a 14th, 19th and 18th place finish, the club stormed to the Third Division title, earning back their second tier status.

In 1972 and 1973, Orient Football Club won the London Challenge Cup in consecutive seasons. However, the club couldn’t transfer its cup form into the league. Orient Football Club spent twelve consecutive seasons in the Second Division, earning mid table finishes each season before the 1981/1982 campaign brought with it another demotion.

Things got worse for Orient Football Club. Three seasons after returning to the Third Division, the club were relegated once more. Playing in the Fourth Division for the first time in the club’s history, this period saw the club change its name back to Leyton Orient.

The club didn’t spend long in the fourth tier of English football. In the 1988/1989 season, Leyton Orient reached the Fourth Division playoffs. Facing Wrexham in the playoff final, Leyton Orient won the game 2-1, sealing the club’s return to the Third Division.

In time for the 1992/1993 season, the Premier League was introduced. This new league replaced the Football League First Division, and resulted in the other Football League divisions being renamed. The Second Division became Division One, the Third Division Division Two and the Fourth Division Division Three. As such, Leyton Orient began the 1992/1993 campaign as a Division Two club.

Just missing out on a playoff place during the 1992/1993 campaign, Leyton Orient’s form faltered. Two seasons later, the club were back in the fourth tier of English football. Leyton Orient spent the next eleven seasons in the fourth tier, twice suffering Division Three playoff final heartbreak.

In time for the 2004/2005 season, the Football League divisions were once more renamed. Division One became the Championship, Division Two League One and Division Three League Two. As such, Leyton Orient became of member of League Two.

The following season, Leyton Orient finally won promotion. Finishing in the third automatic promotion spot, Leyton Orient were elevated to League One. The club made steady progress in this division, reaching the 2013/2014 League One playoffs. However, the club were defeated in the final by Rotherham United on penalties. The following season, rather than another promotion push, the club battled against relegation, a fight the club ultimately lost.

Since the 2015/2016 season, Leyton Orient have been members of the Football League League Two.

Crest

The Leyton Orient crest features two red mythical dragons, situated either side of a football, which incorporates the club’s date of foundation. Above and below this image, the Leyton Orient football badge features two banners, stating the full name of the football club.

The first Leyton Orient football crest was based on the Borough of Leyton coat of arms. This badge was changed to a blue and white striped shield in the 1960’s.

The current Leyton Orient badge was then introduced, and has been used on Leyton Orient kits ever since, though has been subject to a number of minor alterations.

Colours

The Leyton Orient colours are traditionally red. Red has been used as a Leyton Orient kit colour since the club were formed. However, between 1947 and 1967, the Leyton Orient kit colours consisted of blue shirts, white shorts and blue or white socks.

When the club were first formed, the kit consisted of red shirts, white shorts and red socks. This kit was changed in 1904, replaced with green, white and red striped shirts worn with black shorts and black socks.

Between 1910 and 1931, a white shirt with a red ‘V’ shape was worn, before the club adopted red and white hooped shirts, worn with black shorts and black socks.

Red was reintroduced in 1967. Wearing red shirts with alternating red or white shorts with red socks, this kit changed once more to an all white kit featuring two red stripes down the shirts and shorts.

Since 1981, the Leyton Orient colours have been predominantly red, often featuring white as a shorts or socks colour.

The 2016/2017 Leyton Orient kit consists of a red shirt with a black trim, red shorts with a black trim and red socks.
