The last time Chavez Ravine hosted the Midsummer Classic was 42 years ago in 1980 – the NL won 4-2.

The AL has won the last 8 All-Star Games, including 5-2 a year ago at Coors Field.

The NL’s last ASG win came in 2012 behind an 8-0 shutout at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. It was the last of 3 consecutive wins for the Senior Circuit.

The AL has won 20 of the past 24 All-Star Games – the 2002 contest ended in a 7-7 tie.

MLB All-Star Game picks and predictions

Prediction

AL 4, NL 2

Money line

BET AL 105TO WIN 0.7 UNITS.

There wasn’t much thought put into this coin-flip game since, as mentioned, the AL has dominated lately.

The AL’s run of winning 8 in a row and 20 of 24 is a trend hard to ignore.

Run line/Against the spread

BET 0.3 UNITS ON AL -1.5160).

Six of the victories during the AL’s current 8-game win streak have been by 2 or more runs.

Over/Under

BET UNDER 7.5107TO WIN 0.5 UNITS.

I have loved playing Unders in these All-Star Games for years. There was no sweating last year’s “strongest play” of Under 11 (-115) with the AL coming out on top 5-2.

The Under is 12-2-1 in the past 15 All-Star Games.

Tuesday’s 5 p.m. PT start will benefit pitchers as the setting sun will make things tough for batters.

However, Tuesday’s O/U line is a seemingly low 7.5.

I still like it and I’m still suggesting it, but this isn’t a “strongest play” unless the line climbs to 9 – I don’t see that happening.

I am going to wait to make this play just in case the line climbs to 8.

Bonus wager

BET NO FIRST-INNING RUNS TO WIN 0.4 UNITS.

Currently, Tipico Sportsbook is not offering this line. If you can find it for -140 or less, play it.
