The NL, which has won three straight all-star games, opened as a -130 favorite at Bodog. Mets ace Matt Harvey will get the start in front of his hometown crowd. Detroit’s Max Scherzer gets the start for the AL.
Harvey, a hard-throwing righthander, leads the NL in strikeouts and three times has taken no-hit bids into the seventh inning.
Scherzer won his first 13 starts, but got roughed up Saturday in a 7-1 loss to the Texas Rangers. The righthander gave up four runs on eight hits in six innings and suffered his first loss of the season.
The past five games have all gone under the total (1-6 past seven). The AL, which owned a 12-game unbeaten streak against the NL, has only scored two runs total in the past three All Star games. The total was 8 earlier at GTbets.eu.
Each lineup is stacked-it’s an all-star game after all-but the AL would seem to have a little more pop with the Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera and the Orioles’ Chris Davis. Cabrera, who won the Triple Crown last season, leads the AL in batting and RBIs and is second to Davis with 30 home runs. Davis has 37 home runs at the break.
The Rockies’ Carlos Gonzalez leads the NL with 25 home runs. Mets third baseman David Wright will hit cleanup for the NL, with the Cardinals’ Carlos Beltran and the Nationals’ Bryce Harper joining Gonzalez in the outfield.
The AL won seven straight all-star games before the NL started its current win streak. The last 10 all-star games have averaged 7.7 runs. Teams are batting just .236 at Citi Field this season.
