Tonight at Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium, the games elite will face off in the 83th annual MLB All-Star game. Since it’s inception in 1933, the National League has a slight lead in the midsummer classic with a 42-38 record, including victories the past two summers. However, prior to this abbreviated winning streak the American League had won twelve consecutive matchups — discluding the infamous tie of 2002, of course.
For fans, this game offers some of the sports greatest players regardless of whether their careers are winding down (like future hall of famers Chipper Jones and Derek Jeter) or just getting started (like rookie phenoms Bryce Harper and Mike Trout). But where is the value for sports bettors?
