The 83rd edition of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game takes place tonight at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. While the majority of baseball bettors will focus on this evening’s outcome, which the odds maker expect to be an American League victory (drawing -144 odds to win the game), those interested in something more can always take a look at the latest 2012 MLB All-Star Game Prop Bets at Sportsbook.ag. The offshore book is offering a host of propositions on tonight’s big event, a few of which are listed below.
2012 MLB All-Star Game Prop Bets
Will there be a Score in the First Inning?
Yes +105 No -135
Given the performance of Justin Verlander and Matt Cain (tonight's respective starters) this season, one would think a first inning score is unlikely; however, both of these pitchers have struggled, relatively speaking, in the opening frame. Cain has a 5.29 first inning ERA while Verlander has a 3.00 ERA in starting games.
Josh Hamilton – Will He Record a Home Run?
Yes +500 No -800
Of course Hamilton will not get as many at bats as he does in a typical game (he will probably only get one or two plate appearances tonight), but there is only one decision here. No one wants to risk $800 to win $100, so why not take a flyer on a 5 to 1 return?
Who Will Win the 2012 MLB All Star Game MVP?
AL Player -130 NL Player +100
The MVP almost always comes from the winning team, so, this prop, in all probability is a wager on tonight’s winner. Given that, those leaning toward the American League would be smart to take this action as the odds are more favorable in the event of an AL loss (-130 to -144).
