Bet baseball with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.
The biggest stars in the game are ready to shine in the 91st MLB All-Star Game tonight.
This year’s Midsummer Classic is out in Coors Field, with first pitch slated for 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT on FOX. Shohei Ohtani and Max Scherzer are the starting pitchers for the two teams, with Ohtani also batting leadoff for the American League.
The National League, serving as the home team, opened as a -108 moneyline favorite at William Hill Nevada to prevail in the All-Star Game over the American League (-102 opener). That line has shifted slightly, with the NL up to -110 and the AL now residing at even-money odds.
“National League is a slight favorite pretty much because they get last at-bat,” said Nick Bogdanovich, Director of Trading for William Hill US. “With the game right around pick’em, I’m not expecting too big of a decision one way or the other. There have been years where one side has been favored by 30, 40, 50 cents, but the rosters and the pitching look pretty even here.”
The total, meanwhile, has actually jumped up by half a run from where William Hill first posted it.
“When it’s warm at Coors, just average fly balls become home runs,” Bogdanovich said. “We opened 10.5 over -120, and now we’re at 11 under -115. We’re dead even to the total, and we’ve been getting good action on it. With the Coors factor and all the pitchers throwing, the total is definitely intriguing in this game.”
The American League has attracted 53% of the total number of tickets and 63% of the total dollars wagered among all moneyline bets, including one New Jersey bettor staking $18,196.70 on American League -102 for a total potential payout of $36,036.60. That is the largest 2021 MLB All-Star Game wager taken thus far at William Hill.
William Hill bettors are divided on the total, though. While the over has the advantage with 58% of the total number of tickets, the under has the edge with 54% of the total dollars wagered.
There are many other markets being offered by William Hill in several states, including All-Star Game MVP. Shohei Ohtani is the +350 favorite there, followed by Fernando Tatis Jr. (+450), Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (+600) and Aaron Judge (+700).
