Even though the showcase of the MLB All-Star break is the All-Star Game itself, you could argue for the Home Run Derby being the most illustrious event of the few off days. The ratings for the Home Run Derby are always off the charts, and this year won't be an exception.
Whereas in years past, many of the top sluggers have decided to sit out the Home Run Derby, this year, several of the big boys are going to be on display.
The emergence of Aaron Judge has been remarkable to watch in 2017. He has 30 home runs in the first half of the season and has blasted some tremendous shots against live pitching. How will he fare in de facto batting practice? The oddsmakers are hoping well, lining him at +180.
The favorites, though, is Giancarlo Stanton. Stanton really had no choice but to partake in this event, knowing that the game is being played in Miami. His history is awfully good here as well. Stanton has the most home runs in a single Home Run Derby (61), the third-most home runs in a single round (20) and the sixth most career home runs in the Home Run Derby (67). If Stanton does anywhere near as well as the record 61 dingers he blasted last year in Cincinnati, he'll win this event going away as he did then. There's a reason why Stanton is the +160 favorite.
Aside from that, the oddsmakers are assuming there are going to be a bunch of longshots. Cody Bellinger is another of the top rookies in the game, but at a price of +650, it's hard to disregard him. The same really is true for Miguel Sano (+1000) and Justin Bour (+1800), both of whom have the ability to absolutely crush the ball.
The other participants include Charlie Blackmon (+1200), Mike Moustakas (+1200) and Gary Sanchez (+1500). Sanchez is the only man of the bunch who doesn't have at least 19 home runs coming into the last weekend before the All-Star break, though it should be noted that he has only played in 55 games due to injuries and the fact that, as a catcher, he is given plenty of days off.
The 88th MLB All-Star Game will be hosted by the Miami Marlins and will be played at Marlins Park on July 11, 2017. It will be televised nationally on Fox.

It doesn't get any better than this if you love baseball played at the highest possible level, as the All-Star Game is where you get to find all of the top players in the game as they look to put on a show for the dedicated fan base that shows up.
The Midsummer Classic, as it's frequently referred to, may be an exhibition if you want to get technical about it, but it's also an amazing opportunity for stars on the rise to show the fans what they're made of, and fans also know that the winner holds the key to home-field advantage in the World Series as well.
Though the winning league has earned home-field advantage in the World Series since 2003, the impact has likely not been as strong as expected as only on three occasions has the team with the advantage been crowned champion.
MLB All Star Game odds are popular in part because the game features the best players in the world and betting on the game will give you a chance to place wagers on players from opposing teams that rarely play together, as teammates, during the regular season.
Additionally, the baseball All Star odds involve a game with some genuine meaning, unlike the All Star Games in many other sports, because the league that wins will get home field advantage during the World Series.

In the past, online baseball bettors have tried to place a bet on a baseball game, only to find out that the first pitch was a few minutes ago?
This is when those baseball bettors were informed by the online sportsbook clerk that there’s "No Action" once the game starts, and you’ll just have to pick a later game or wait until next day to get your baseball bets inn.
However, online sportsbooks have revolutionized the gambling world by adding live and in-play baseball betting to the menu of options available to bettors. Continue
All-Star Game is an annual exhibition match between the best players from the American League and the National League, the two smaller leagues constituting the MLB. Also known as the "Midsummer Classic", The All-Star Game starts with a man named Arch Ward, a sportswriter who invented the game as a one-time event for the 1933 World's Fair.
Due to the success of the first game, it has been played annually ever since. The game is played in July and marks what is roughly the halfway mark in the MLB season. It is played on the only two days during the season when no major sports events in America play. The MLB All-Star Game provides baseball betting fans with the unique experience of watching their favorite stars from different teams play together.
Nowadays, the sports betting fans and manager-selected players of the National and American Leagues play in a mid-season exhibition game and the results determine which league's team gets home-field advantage in the World Series that year.
