MLB All-Star Game Betting Odds

Let’s start with MLB All-Star Game betting odds. The National League is the slight favorite after going seven consecutive games without a win.

The National League is favored to end their slump in the MLB All-Star Game. If you’re a totals bettor, you’ll be interested to know that overthrows have hit in 11 of the last 14 years.For the 2021 MLB All-Star Game, the total is set at 8.5 runs with each side paying -115.

National League -120 O8.5 (-115)
American League -110 U8.5 (-115)

Why Is the National League Team Favored?

To start, the favorite in the World Series odds is a National League team, the Los Angeles Dodgers, though it may seem odd that there isn’t a Dodger representative in the lineup.

The NL Starting Lineup

C: Buster Posey (Giants)
1B: Freddie Freeman (Braves)
2B: Adam Frazier (Pirates)
3B: Nolan Arenado (Cardinals)
SS: Fernando Tatis Jr. (Padres)
OF: Ronald Acuna Jr. (Braves)
OF: Nick Castellanos (Reds)
OF: Jesse Winker (Reds)

The National League lineup includes 2016 NL Rookie of the Year, 2015 Hank Aaron Award winner, and 2017 Gold Glove awardee.However, Castellanos and Frazier have had good batting averages in the first half of this season, currently ranked 3rd and 4th respectively.

It Is Hard To Bet Against The American League

The AL has won seven straight Midsummer Classics, and is the underdog in odds this year. Last time they played, their pitching struck out 16 NL batters on route to a narrow 4-3 victory.

The American League has won 25 of the last 32 MLB All-Star Games and I predict they will win this year’s game as well, particularly because Ohtani is pitching.

AL Starting Lineup

C: Salvador Perez (Royals)
1B: Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (Blue Jays)
2B: Marcus Semien (Blue Jays)
3B: Rafael Devers (Red Sox)
SS: Xander Bogaerts (Red Sox)
OF: Mike Trout (Angels)
OF: Aaron Judge (Yankees)
OF: Teoscar Hernandez (Blue Jays)
DH: Shohei Ohtani (Angels)

We spoke about the National League’s pitching staff and of course their favorite to win the MVP award in Jacob deGrom, but unfortunately, he is not participating in the All-Star gameOhtani is not just good at pitching. He also hit a lot of home runs in the first half of the season, even more than Guerrero.

MLB All-Star Game Betting Prediction

I’m afraid the National League will continue its slump as there is no significant betting value in either team. With the AL dominating and being the underdog, I’ll take an UNDER 8.5 runs with -115 odds.
