MLB All Star Game: First step to the World Series
Our Crew here at Advantage Sports Bettinge are huge sports fans – from a stat tracking and a viewing enjoyment perspective. We are also serious sports handicappers who are not big on All Star betting – no matter the sport. The lone exception is the MLB Midsummer Classic as it’s the only All Star contest in North America that actually counts for something. Following the 11-inning exhibition marathon in 2002, that ended as a 7-7 tie, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig & Co. mandated that the All Star game winner would gain home field advantage in the World Series. Since then, All Star Champions have won seven of ten World Series and four straight.

With all the hugs and giggles exhausted during last night’s Home Run Derby (won by Prince Fielder) it’s time to get down to business. Checking the betting board, at the williamhill.com online sports wagering website, we find the National League as fairly thick home chalk tonight. The Senior Circuit Boys are listed with a -1.5 (+160) run line and and they’re -135 straight up. The Junior Circuit squad are road pups at +1.5 ATS and +115 on the money line while the Game Total is posted at 8 (-110) runs. We are going to ease off the gas a little today and drop a Franklin on a parlay backing the National League (-135) and the OVER (-110) at William Hill.
