2016 MLB All Star Game Betting Lines And Prediction
First implemented in 1933, the MLB All-Star game is a fan favourite partly due to the democratic nature of the event, as the general public votes in the starting lineup. For the most part, this annual event takes place after the halfway point of the season. Since 2003, Major League Baseball and the player’s association agreed to up the ante for the all star game, giving home field advantage in the World Series to the league that wins.

Over the history of the MLB All-Star game, the results have been surprisingly tight, with the National League besting the American League with a record of 43-41-2. Run production has also been close, with the National League scoring only a few more runs than the AL over the decades of play.
These stats are more unlikely when you consider the fact that leagues tend to dominate the All-Star game in a streaky fashion. Since the late eighties, the American League has crushed the National League on a regular basis, including a lossless streak of 13 between 1997 to 2009. However, between the early sixties and the early eighties, the National League had a streak of 19 wins in 20 games.

National League Wins Low Scoring Affair
The American League has dominated the National League at the All-Star game over the past decade and a half. Normally, they would be the favourites, especially considering the amazing depth of talent they boast at every position. While both sides have an incredible lineup of hitters, the AL has multi-faceted stars like Josh Donaldson and Mike Trout who are capable of making a difference with their defence and baserunning as well as their bats.
A factor that must be considered, however, is the pitching depth of the National League, which can trot several hurlers to the mound capable of pitching a no-hitter on any given night. While the overall level of talent of the AL may result in superior odds, smart fans of wagering on the MLB All-Star game will take a close look at the moneylines for the NL. If the payout for the moneyline is decent, it’s not a bad idea to wager on the underdog of the match. Unless the spectre of injury further depletes their pitching staff, the NL should be considered a solid play.
San Diego hosts the 2016 edition of the MLB All-Star Game at Petco Park, which is one of the most difficult venues for hitters. As a result, it’s more likely than not that this matchup will be a low scoring affair, making an under bet for over/under wagering a decent proposition.
