- The 2019 MLB All-Star Game gets underway tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET on FOX.
- Using The Action Network's betting tools, we examine how sharp bettors are leveraging public money to find value in tonight's game.
After a thrilling Home Run Derby on Monday night, festivities continue with tonight’s MLB All-Star Game.
With no other games in town, recreational bettors will flock to the All-Star Game, pumping up ticket counts as public money floods the market.
On the other hand, sharps don’t bet for action and have no problem laying off if an edge isn’t there.
However, based on the betting tools available at The Action Network, pros have been happy to buyback the value created by one-sided public betting action thus far.
The All-Star Game total opened at 8.5 with 76% of bets and 72% of money wagered hitting the over.
But even with such lopsided betting on the over, oddsmakers have made a minor adjustment by moving the vig from -110 to -115.
That’s because sharps bought back the under multiple times, keeping the line in check and sportsbooks from pushing this total closer to 9.
According to Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, which track and report professional betting action in real-time — wiseguys hit the under twice on Monday, explaining why the line has remained relatively steady.
There’s still plenty of time for more money to hit the MLB All-Star Game, which it certainly will, so be sure to download The Action Network’s free mobile app to track real-time odds and betting percentage updates.
