With the NBA and NFL leagues in lockouts, it’s time for North American facing sportsbooks to focus on the MLB and its marquee game, the 2011 MLB All-Star game.
Well, the National League finally got the thirteen year old monkey off their back by beating the American League in the Mid Summer Classic.
Obviously the biggest prop wager you want to make is who will win the MVP, with the many stars in this game, it’s really anyone’s guess.
If you were planning on betting on the 2010 MLB Allstar Game, keep in mind, the National League hasn’t won the Mid Summer Classic since 1996.
There’s really only two true power hitters in the field in David Ortiz and Miguel Cabrera, but David Ortiz isn’t the man he used to be.
The MLB is calling it the closest allstar voting race in history as Nick Swisher barely edged out Kevin Youkilis to make the AL allstar team.
It’s pure injustice that the Reds first baseman Votto isn’t already selected to the Allstar team roster.
