Since a dozen runs were scored in the All-Star Game in 2005 the contest hasn't produced more than nine combined runs, leading to that run of UNDER winners at the sportsbooks. In fact, the total for the game at the sportsbooks has been decreasing for the All-Star Game over the past decade, from 10 back in the mid-late 2000s down to 8.5 in more recent years and then to 8 over the past two years.
The American League won last year's All-Star Game, reversing a trend of National League wins at the contest from 2010 to 2012. Prior to that the American League had dominated the game, with their lengthy winning streak broken up only by that tie in Milwaukee in 2002.

Home-field advantage in the World Series will be at stake when the National League hosts the American League in the 2013 MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday at Citi Field in New York.

The NL, which has won three straight all-star games, opened as a -130 favorite at Bovada. 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.
