All Star Game Prediction

Some things never change. One of those things is going to be the American League’s dominance over the National League in the All Star Game. Look for Cole to shut down the offense early, and the American League to get after a few of the National League pitchers. Betting the American League at -120 seems like the way to go here. Also, bet the over 7.5, as the American League wins 6-4.
