- MLB All-Star Game Begins Tonight At 7:30 PM On FOX
- Shohei Ohtani Leads All-Star MVP Odds
- National League Favored To Win By 1.5 Runs
Tonight at 7:30 on Fox will begin Major League Baseball’s 91st All-Star game live from Denver’s Coors Field.
Major League Baseball betting sites have provided game lines and prop bets for several occurrences that will be in play tonight, and Shohei Ohtani is sitting on top of the MVP odds following his dominant Home Run Derby performance last night.
2021 All-Star Game MVP Betting Odds
- Shohei Ohtani +325
- Field – Any Other Player +350
- Fernando Tatis Jr. +800
- Nolan Arenado +900
- Vladimir Guerrero Jr. +900
- Aaron Judge +1000
- Freddie Freeman +1200
- Xander Bogaerts +1400
This will be the last prominent MLB wagering event until betting on the World Series and the playoffs commence this October, and the All-Star Break couldn’t have come at a better time for fans around the country that can rejoice now that COVID-19 is no longer running amok and causing for empty stadiums.
The world’s best online sports betting sites have set the following line for the 2021 MLB All-Star Game that predicts the National League will be victorious by at least one run.
American League vs. National League – MLB All-Star Game Odds
- Point Spread: AL +1.5, NL -1.5
- Moneyline: AL -175, NL +155
- Over/Under: 11.0
Using the over/under total of 11 runs and combining that with the point spread of 1.5, we can calculate what the oddsmakers are predicting will be the final score of the game.
National League 6
American League 5
Because the game is taking place in the high altitude of Denver’s Coors Field, baseballs will travel further and create the potential for extra home runs when gathering the league’s best hitters together.
Once again, the first Major League Baseball All-Star player that is predicted to hit a home run tonight is Ohtani, but the best odds are granted to the field of players that are not listed in this MLB prop bet.
Player To Hit First Home Run In MLB All-Star Game
- Field – Any Other Player +500
- Shohei Ohtani +600
- Fernando Tatis Jr. +700
- No Home Runs Hit in the Game +800
- Aaron Judge +900
- Vladimir Guerrero Jr. +900
- Nolan Arenado +1000
Decent odds are placed on the prospect of no home runs being hit at all but considering the thin atmosphere in Colorado, we don’t advise placing any action on that prospect.
The American League holds a 2-contest edge over the NL for All-Star Games, winning 45 to their 43, with two exhibitions ending in a tie.
Another fact to consider before placing MLB bets is that the last time an All-Star Game was hosted in Coors Field, it was the highest-scoring affair in the game’s 91 season history. However, during that same game, there were only two home runs hit (Alex Rodriguez and Roberto Alomar).
Tune in tonight to find out if the NL can climb back to within one game all-time against the AL, and if you can’t make up your mind on what to bet on before the first pitch is thrown, check out the live betting odds offered by our top sportsbook sites for in-play lines that update as each inning completes.
