MLB All-Star Game Prediction 86th Midsummer Classic

MLB All-Star Game Prediction 86th Midsummer Classic

Zack Greinke leads a parade of NL pitching studs 

Selected as the starter by National League manager Bruce Bochy, Los Angeles Dodgers ace Zack Greinke will fire the first pitch in Cincinnati tonight. Greinke will be followed by a host of stud pitchers including teammate Clayton Kershaw, 2014 World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner, Pirates ace Gerrit Cole, plus star closers Jonathan Papelbon from the Phillies and Aroldis Chapman from the Reds. 

Dallas Keuchel gets the start from the American League pitching rotation

Enjoying the best year of his young MLB career, Houston Astros ace Dallas Keuchel was selected by manager Ned Yost as the starter for the American League tonight. Though slightly less impressive than the NL parade of pitchers, AL aces like the Tigers David Price, the Mariners Felix Hernadez, and Chris Sale from the White Sox are all expected to pitch for the American League squad in this contest.

MLB 2015 All-Star Game Prediction: The Junior circuit is 9-3 since the 2002 Midsummer Classic ended in a 7-7 tie – a debacle that led MLB to institute the current carrot at the end of the All-Star stick. As one would expect, when some of the greatest players on the planet gather together, bookmakers have kept the lines tight for this tussle. Sensing this being a contest close, and liking the NL slightly more than the AL, we will take the runs being offered here. We are backing the National League All-Stars with a 500 unit wager on the Adjusted Runline price posted on the Sportsbook.ag betting board.

The Oscars: Nomadland The Pick Of The Flicks

There are no past performances to assess, so going with an underdog isn't necessarily a bad strategy.
