Seattle will host the 2023 MLB All-Star Game, which will take place at T-Mobile Park on Tuesday, July 11. The 93rd Midsummer Classic will feature an impressive collection of superstars, from MVP candidates Ronald Acuna Jr. and Shohei Ohtani to thriving rookies like Josh Jung and Corbin Carroll.
With so much talent on both sides, who will come out on top in the annual summer clash between the American League and National League?
Let’s predict which star-studded team will lead their team to victory with our MLB All-Star Game best bets and predictions.
MLB All-Star Game Odds
MLB betting odds used for my writeup are current as of 10 p.m. ET on Sunday, July 9, at Caesars Sportsbook.
- Moneyline: American League (-115) • National League (-105)
- Run Line: American League -1.5 (+180) • National League +1.5 (-220)
- Over/Under Run Total: Over 7.5 (-105) • Under 7.5 (-115)
The American League is favored to win the event, which makes sense given the AL’s home-field advantage. However, these rosters are evenly matched, leaving this showdown as a near toss-up.
MLB All-Star Game Prediction
American League 4 • National League 3
The MLB All-Star Game is always tough to predict because the starting position players usually come out midway through the game, and pitchers rarely go more than one inning, making the outcome somewhat random.
With so many substitutions, these games tend to be close, lower-scoring affairs. For example, the last nine games have all been decided by three runs or less, while only one of the previous 16 contests has produced double-digit runs.

That said, the American League has won nine consecutive All-Star Games going back to 2013 and 16 of the previous 20 contests.
I will back the home team, consisting of several American League West players in their starting lineup (Ohtani, Jung, Jonah Heim, Marcus Semien, and Corey Seager) that will be very familiar with T-Mobile Park.
MLB All-Star Game Best Bets
UNDER 7.5 Total Runs (-115)
WAGER: 1 Unit
Even with all the big bats on display, pitchers typically have the upper hand in the All-Star Game. They only come in for one inning, and the hitters are usually unfamiliar with them.
Accordingly, the All-Star Game is often a pitching duel. Five of the last six games have gone under this total, including last year at Dodger Stadium when only five total runs were scored, making this our MLB Play of the Day.
Americal League Moneyline (-115)
WAGER: 1 Unit
The American League has been the stronger league for a while, which explains its sustained success against the National League.
Even without Aaron Judge or Mike Trout in the starting lineup, the AL will have an embarrassment of riches to replace them such as Luis Robert, Adolis Garcia, Julio Rodriguez, and Kyle Tucker.
In addition, the American League has an incredible bench full of talent with names such as Adley Rutschman, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette, Jose Ramirez, and Wander Franco.
The AL does not have a substantial edge on paper by any means, but with history on its side and home-field advantage, they are the smart choice.
