Bettors are fully behind the American League favorite in the All-Star Game on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium.

The AL is a 1.5-run favorite (-105) with a total of 7.5 runs drawing big support, including 72 percent of the handle with DraftKings.

The American League has won eight consecutive All-Star Games.

The prop bet getting the most action at BetMGM is “American League to win by 1 run” at +600.

More than four out of five bets at BetMGM on the total are on the over (eight runs).

Splits for the MVP award lean toward Angels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani, the +390 favorite. Of all MVP bets, 13 percent are on Ohtani at DraftKings, sho slots in ahead of Nationals outfielder Juan Soto (+4000, backed by 14 percent of handle) and Yankees slugger Aaron Judge (+500, 10 percent of handle).

Among MVP longshots, former Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager (+10000) has 5 percent of total MVP bets, tied with Red Sox infielder Rafael Devers (+2500).
