All Star Game: Best Bets, July 13
We have reached the midway point in the baseball year and it’s time for the all star game at Coors field. With both rosters finally set, let’s explore some of your best betting options on tonight’s game.
NL Money Line
The AL has won this game seven years in a row and have only lost three times in the last 20 years! While this game doesn’t count for anything anymore, you can still expect a good show. Now, while I slightly side with the AL in terms of their offense, I greatly side with the NL when it comes to pitching, and that’s what will make the difference here. Look for it to be a close game and for the NL to take the lead late and finally snap the streak.
Yes, I know it’s Coors, but it’s also the ace of every staff going against guys who would rather have fun than go all out and risk getting hurt. Since 2006, only 1 All Star game has reached double digits. With the pitching skates for both sides we’re riding with the under.
Here is a bonus if you need more action because who doesn’t need more action. Will there be a score in the first…take yes. Now, I love Ohtani and make plays when he starts often, but his small weakness is giving up home runs. So now you have a situation of a guy who gives up homers, who was in the home run derby last night as your opening pitcher, pitching to nothing but all stars at Coors field. Sounds like it’s at least worth some lunch money to me.
