MLB All Star Game MVP and Home Run Odds Preview

With all the heavy hitters stepping into the batter's box tonight in baseball's all-star game, you'd think one would be favored to hit the first home run. You'd be wrong.

The 'None' option tops the list at Bovada at roughly 4/1 odds while Albert Pujols and Miguel Cabrera are close behind. They are called prop bets and they always come out in full force when the sports world pauses to focus on a single game.

Much like the Super Bowl where fans can bet on thousands of different prop or proposition bets, the MLB All Star Game odds go much further than whether the AL can continue its run of domination. The AL is favored again and they send Tampa Bay's David Price out as the starter. Ubaldo Jimenez goes for the NL and he is favored to throw a strike for his first pitch.

Player matchups (betting whether Josh Hamilton will have more combined runs, hits and RBIs than Hanley Ramirez) are also popular. Check out the sampling of odds below and visit Bovada for a full list of all odds.
