The 2023 MLB All-Star Game is set to kick off tonight and this year’s Mid-Summer classic is set to be another good one.
With Nick Castellanos and Craig Kimbrel both earning all-star nods this year, Phillies fans are also going to want to see this. With that and plenty of notable stars from around the league, there is plenty of room to make this competition even more entertaining as a fan by placing some (responsible) wagers.

MLB All-Star Game Starting Lineups
The American League team is the betting favorite heading into this star-studded MLB All-Star Game, currently sitting as a -112 favorite. This means you’d have to bet $11.20 to win and profit $10.
The National League, however, is making this a pretty evenly split game for betting purposes, currently sitting at -104, meaning $10.40 profits you $10.
The total for this one is sitting at 7.5 runs, which feels like Vegas is expecting pitching to run the game. And with guys like Gerrit Cole and Zac Gallen starting and Sonny Gray, Spencer Strider, and more to follow them, it makes sense.
