The 2017 Major League Baseball season has reached it’s halfway point in the season. While teams have played more than half their games, this is known as the Mid Summer Classic, and the All Star Game and the festivities around it are set to take place. The 2017 version is where the American League can tie the all time series between the two teams. There has been two ties in the game as well. Marlins Park in Miami Florida will be the host of the 2017 All Star Game. Let’s take a look at How to Bet on the 2017 Homerun Derby and the Major League Baseball All Star Game.
The Homerun Derby will take place on Monday night. Giancarlo Stanton is the defending champion of the event, and now he is at his home park. He is not the only Marlins player in the event, as Justin Bour will also participate. Let’s take a look at a the odds.
Giancarlo Stanton 9/2
The defending champion can mash baseball’s wherever he goes. He will face Gary Sanchez in the first round of the derby.
Aaron Judge 5/1
The youngster has burst onto the scene, and is the 2nd seed in the event. He will take on hometown fan favorite Justin Bour in the first round.
Cody Bellinger 11/2
The National League version of Aaron Judge is taking on Charlie Blackmon in the first round. This could be an interesting battle for the young stud.
Miguel Sano 7/1
The third baseman for the Minnesota Twins is having a break out season. Sano is allowing the Twins to hang in the division with Cleveland and Kansas City.
Mike Moustakas 7/1
The MOOSE has been outstanding for the Kansas City Royals. Kansas City has started to heat up offensively, and that’s due in large part to the Royals slugger.
Charlie Blackmon 14/1
The Colorado Rockies look like they could be a playoff team. Blackmon is great at home, but can also mash the ball away from home.
Justin Bour 19/1
Look out for Bour in this event. He knows the park, and the big dude can really smash the baseball.
Gary Sanchez 24/1
Sanchez has cooled off a little bit, but still has silly amounts of power. Sanchez wants to prove that he belongs.
When we make our final bets for the All Star Game Homerun Derby, we are going to go with an underdog. We are going to take Justin Bour. Bour is listed at 19/1, so giving you great value on the bet.
Finally, it’s time to make a bet on the actual All Star Game. The National League will likely trot Max Scherzer out there. In All Star Games, starting pitchers do not pitch too long, so it will be up to the rest of the pitchers. The American League will likely go with Chris Sale. He is nasty as well. The concern for the American League is a few of the starting pitchers that made it for the first time. They will be coming out of the bullpen, which is a different role. Take the National League at 5/6 odds to win the All Star Game in 2017.
There is a look at some of the best bets for the 2017 Homerun Derby and the Major League Baseball All Star Game. Best of luck with all your betting, and enjoy the action. It should be a great second half of the season, but let’s see the best players in the game get together this week.
