The 2022 MLB All-Star Game will be played tonight at Dodger Stadium, in Los Angeles.

Some of the biggest stars in the game will be on the field.

Despite some key absences (Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, Yordan Alvarez, and Jose Altuve won’t be able to play, just to name a few), other excellent players will put on a show: Aaron Judge, Shohei Ohtani, Paul Goldschmidt, Manny Machado, Clayton Kershaw, Nestor Cortes, and many others will take the field in LA.

Both teams are stacked with top talent: what do the oddsmakers say?

Who is the favorite and who is the underdog?

According to Fox Bet Live, the National League is the slight favorite to win the Midsummer Classic.

They are not overwhelming favorites at -118, but the odds say they are the more likely team to celebrate on the field when all is said and done.

Overall, they seem to have a slightly better team with the junior circuit missing two of the best five hitters in baseball in Trout and Alvarez.

The National League, on the other hand, will have Ronald Acuna Jr. Goldschmidt, Trea Turner, Mookie Betts, Machado, and other potent hitters as starters, and a solid amount of aces waiting to cover some innings.

Kershaw will start the game, but Corbin Burnes, Carlos Rodon, Sandy Alcantara, Luis Castillo, Max Fried, Joe Musgrove, and Tony Gonsolin will be available, too, plus some of the best relievers in the game.

The American League does have some talent, too, in Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Rafael Devers, Judge, Ohtani, and Giancarlo Stanton.

It will be a fascinating game for MLB fans all over the world.
