The ScoreMLB All-Star Game odds: AL slight favorites, Ohtani tops MVP board

The All-Star festivities got underway Monday night with the Dodgers' Teoscar Hern ndez winning the Home Run Derby as a +1000 longshot - the sixth-longest odds of the eight contestants.Now it's time for the main event.The American League is a slight -120 favorite over the National League in the 2024 Midsummer Classic. Last year, the NL snapped a nine-game winless streak that dated back to 2013 with a 3-2 victory at T-Mobile Park in Seattle. The AL will send the Orioles' Corbin Burnes to the mound to take on rookie sensation Paul Skenes, who will become the first rookie to start an All-Star Game since Hideo Nomo in 1995.Here are the starting lineups for both sides: American League National League LF - Steven Kwan (CLE) 2B - Ketel Marte (ARI) SS - Gunnar Henderson (BAL) DH - Shohei Ohtani (LAD) RF - Juan Soto (NYY) SS - Trea Turner (PHI) CF - Aaron Judge (NYY) 1B - Bryce Harper (PHI) DH - Yordan Alvarez (HOU) C - William Contreras (MIL) 3B - Jos Ram rez (CLE) RF - Christian Yelich (MIL) 1B - Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (TOR) 3B - Alec Bohm (PHI) C - Adley Rutschman (BAL) CF - Teoscar Hern ndez (LAD) 2B - Marcus Semien (TEX) LF - Jurickson Profar (SD) Despite two loaded lineups and plenty of pop coming off the bench, All-Star Games were low-scoring in recent years. Six of the past seven games had fewer than 7.5 runs, the current betting total for Tuesday's game. The under is the slight favorite at -120.If you thought betting on the Home Run Derby was a crapshoot, how about the All-Star Game MVP?With limited at-bats, predicting which player will win the award is difficult. You're banking on a player to hit a key home run or cash in a few runners with a timely double. Good luck calling that. MVP odds Player Odds Shohei Ohtani +800 Aaron Judge +950 Bryce Harper +1000 Gunnar Henderson +1200 Juan Soto +1400 Trea Turner +1800 Yordan Alvarez +1800 Adley Rutschman +2000 Bobby Witt Jr. +2000 Vladimir Guerrero Jr. +2000 Christian Yelich +2500 Elly De La Cruz +2500 Jos Ram rez +2500 Ketel Marte +2500 William Contreras +2500 Odds via theScore Bet. Players above +2500 are not listed. Ohtani is the slight favorite over Judge, but it's evident given the condensed prices that oddsmakers have little idea who will win the award. If anything, backing a starter with longer odds, since they are likely to get two or maybe three at-bats, is the most valuable route to take.If you are thinking about backing a pitcher to win the award, keep in mind that only two pitchers (Shane Bieber in 2019 and Mariano Rivera in 2013) have earned the honor since 2000.Copyright © 2024 Score Media Ventures Inc.

NBC SportsKetel Marte will lead off for Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo in the NL All-Star lineup.

It's a defensible choice, though Shohei Ohtani is right there, and Trea Turner and Christian Walker also might have been better options. Marte will be followed by Ohtani, Turner, Bryce Harper, William Contreras, Yelich, Alex Bohm, Teoscar Hernandez and Jurickson Profar.

NBC SportsKetel Marte blasted a grand slam homer on Sunday afternoon, but it wasn't enough to power the Diamondbacks to victory over the Blue Jays.

Marte got the Diamondbacks' offense started with a monstrous 443-foot (109.8 mph EV) grand slam as part of a seven-/run uprising off of Yusei Kikuchi in the fifth inning. He also had a pair of singles in the ballgame, finishing the day 3-for-5. The All-Star second baseman finishes the first half hitting .292/.362/.515 with 19 homers, 57 RBI and six stolen bases.

NBC SportsYusei Kikuchi completely fell apart in the fifth inning on Sunday, giving up seven runs on six hits and three walks over 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks.

Kikuchi cruised into the fifth inning on Sunday with a comfortable 7-0 lead, but things got much tighter after Kikuchi allowed a single, two walks and then a one-out grand slam to Ketel Marte. Jays' manager John Schneider stuck with him, as he allowed a walk to Gabriel Moreno and a single to Lourdes Gurriel Jr. before punching out Christian Walker for the second out. He then allowed an RBI single to Randal Grichuk and plunked Jake McCarthy before mercifully being removed -- and both inherited runners went on to score. Kikuchi heads into the All-Star break with a 4-8 record, 4.42 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and a 117/26 K/BB ratio over 106 innings through his first 20 starts. He looked like a much better trade chip prior to Sunday's disastrous fifth inning.

NBC SportsCorbin Carroll is not in Sunday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

Curious to see Carroll sitting after a two-homer game, but he'll take a breather to finish up the first half with left-hander Yusei Kikuchi starting for the Blue Jays. Ketel Marte will slide into the leadoff spot and Randal Grichuk will play right field.
