The best players of the American and National Leagues in American baseball are gathered each year for the All-Star Game. In it’s 89th installment, this year’s game is being held at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. The American League is the favorite this year, coming off a 5-year winning streak, however the teams are all tied up with a lifetime record of 43-43-2.
It’s not always easy to find value bets for the All-Star game. Both teams are loaded with talent. This year the total runs has been set at 7, but 5 of the last 8 meetings have been under that total.

It will be Sale’s third consecutive All-Star start and Scherzer will be on his home field for his second start in a row. So expect a pitching battle!
