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.

The ScoreThe best moments from the 2024 MLB All-Star Game

The 94th Major League Baseball All-Star Game was certainly one to remember as baseball's stars got together to create a fun-filled evening in Arlington. Here are the best moments from this year's Midsummer Classic.Drone entrance Crack a door, let that drone into @GlobeLifeField #AllStarGame pic.twitter.com/bTkvUiYBnD FOX Sports: MLB (@MLBONFOX) July 17, 2024 What better way to get things started than by entering Globe Life Field via drone?Phillies dazzle on the field and the mic "Well, it officially is the greatest play by a player that has wore the mic." Not even a mic can stop @treavturner from flashing the leather pic.twitter.com/TwIhmklekB FOX Sports: MLB (@MLBONFOX) July 17, 2024 A trio of Phillies helped hold down the NL's starting infield while chatting with broadcasters Joe Davis and John Smoltz. So everyone got to hear Trea Turner's amazing diving stop and Bryce Harper's bewildered reaction to his teammate's feat.Skenes' debut Paul Skenes brings the heat deep in the heart of Texas! The @pirates phenom works a hitless opening inning in his #AllStarGame debut! pic.twitter.com/RINpFZYnBi MLB Pipeline (@MLBPipeline) July 17, 2024 The world was waiting for Paul Skenes to start the All-Star Game, and he didn't disappoint. The Pirates rookie worked around a walk to Juan Soto by tossing a hitless first inning and got Aaron Judge to ground into a force with his final pitch.Shohei goes deep SHOHEI OHTANI #ALLSTARGAME HOMER! pic.twitter.com/Q8QF8nuEbu MLB (@MLB) July 17, 2024 There's no stage too big for Shohei Ohtani. Baseball's biggest star got the scoring started with a massive three-run homer off a helpless Tanner Houck. He became the first player ever to be the winning pitcher in one All-Star Game (2021) and homer in another, as well as the first Dodger to go deep in a Midsummer Classic since Mike Piazza in 1996.Fry's moment All tied up in Arlington after an RBI single by David Fry : #AllStarGame on FOX pic.twitter.com/lIu55qeoac FOX Sports: MLB (@MLBONFOX) July 17, 2024 David Fry, perhaps the unlikeliest of this year's All-Stars, used his moment to introduce himself to the world. Pinch hitting for Yordan Alvarez in the third inning, the Guardians' Swiss Army knife helped key the AL's comeback with his game-tying single.It's Miller Time Mason Miller Masterclass. pic.twitter.com/LxRKtfWpvO Oakland A's (@Athletics) July 17, 2024 Mason Miller brought his A-game to Arlington. The Athletics closer's 12-pitch fifth inning included a strikeout of Ohtani and an All-Star Game-record 103.6-mph pitch that almost certainly left Trea Turner seeing stars. Miller became the first rookie pitcher to earn the win at the All-Star Game since 1954.Big Papi's got jokes Big Papi never disappoints on the mic. #AllStarGame pic.twitter.com/RYoQ7KPyvK MLB (@MLB) July 17, 2024 David Ortiz knows how to have fun. He spent the seventh inning schmoozing in the AL dugout, yukking it up with Jarren Duran before pleading with Baltimore's Gunnar Henderson to take it easy on his Red Sox. Papi: Can you do me a favor? Can you take it easy on my Red Sox?Gunnar Henderson: I don't know if I can do that Big Papi.Papi: Beat the Yankees while you're at it. pic.twitter.com/pV1fZPHkDm FOX Sports: MLB (@MLBONFOX) July 17, 2024 Duran steps up JARREN DURAN 2-RUN HR FOR THE LEAD : #AllStarGame on FOX pic.twitter.com/lSwunPK385 FOX Sports: MLB (@MLBONFOX) July 17, 2024 The AL recovered from Ohtani's blast by scoring five unanswered runs, with Duran's huge blast standing up as the game-winner. For his effort, Duran won the Ted Williams All-Star Game MVP award.Clase closes it out Emmanuel Clase closes it out for the AL! #AllStarGame pic.twitter.com/wqQhRK77c0 MLB (@MLB) July 17, 2024 For the second time in three years, Emmanuel Clase shut down the National League in the ninth inning. The Guardians stopper let out all his emotions after striking out Bryan Reynolds to end it.Copyright © 2024 Score Media Ventures Inc. All rights reserved. Certain content reproduced under license.
