MLB All-Star Game Bets are Sky-High in Washington State Right Now

It’s that beautiful time of the year for baseball fans of Washington sports betting, as the Major League All-Star Game is right around the corner on July 11. For people in the Pacific Northwest, the good news is that that season’s mid-summer classic will be taking place at T-Mobile Park in Seattle. July is always a beautiful time of year in the city, which has people hyped for the festivities. As you might be able to imagine, the MLB All-Star Game bets are sky-high in Washington state right now.

This really shouldn’t come as a surprise, as this is the first time in more than 20 years that the All-Star Game is making its way to the Emerald City. Obviously, people are checking the MLB betting odds not only for the All-Star Game, but also the Home-Run Derby. The excitement all over town only skyrocketed when it was announced that Mariners center fielder Julio Rodriguez will be participating in the event.

J-Rod was in the Home-Run Derby last season and he put on a show from start to finish. He nearly ended up winning it all, but he lost in the final. Despite that, Rodriguez continues to be one of the more exciting young players in the game. This time around, he’s hoping that he can be the Home-Run Derby king. With him being so popular, people all over Washington State are betting on him to take home the title.

Soon enough when the All-Star Game festivities start, people all over the world will keep on putting in their MLB wagers. The All-Star Game is a great time of year for people to not only have fun, but also place bets. Seattle is going to be packed with people throughout the week. With this, you can fully expect plenty of visitors to make their way to the in-person sportsbooks located around the Seattle area. This will be great news for local businesses as well.

MLB betting as a whole has been strong for Washington this season

In addition to the All-Star Game, MLB betting as a whole has been strong for Washington this season. Last year, the Mariners defied the odds and booked a trip to the playoffs for the first time since 2001. This had people fired up for what they’d be able to get done in this campaign. Unfortunately, Seattle has been quite inconsistent and they’re currently on the outside looking in for the AL Wild Card.

However, there’s still an entire second half of the season left to be played, so you know people will have a strong belief in this team to catch fire. While the Mariners don’t hold strong MLB betting odds to win the World Series – as they’ve never won it all – that doesn’t mean that they don’t have the kind of talent on offense and with their pitching to make a splash in the postseason, if they make it back in that is.

In addition to the Mariners, baseball fans in Washington also have strong interest in the other AL West sides. The Texas Rangers have been a surprise this year, while the Houston Astros are trying to repeat as the champions. Houston holds strong World Series odds, as their offense is one of the best in the bigs. Houston is currently without slugger Yordan Alvarez due to injury, but when he’s back on the field, look out.

Looking at the odds, the Los Angeles Dodgers, Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros are the top three teams when it comes to potentially winning the World Series. People are dreaming of the Dodgers and Braves meeting in the NLCS. That’d be one heck of a series, especially if it were to go all seven games. For the Mariners, a trip to the ALCS would be a dream come true for countless people in the state.

Seahawks bets are about to reach a new level in the coming weeks

Turning our attention to the NFL, Seahawks bets are about to reach a new level in the coming weeks for the state. That’s because in late July, training camp is about to get underway for the squads over at their team facility in Renton. The Seahawks reached the playoffs last year, but suffered a tough loss to the San Francisco 49ers to end their season. Now, this team will be ready for some revenge.

A lot of the talk has been about the addition of star wideout Jaxon Smith-Njigba in the NFL Draft. The former Ohio State standout was considered the best wide receiver available for his class. He’s going to have massive expectations catching the ball from Geno Smith moving forward.

It could prove to be a year to remember for the Seahawks. They’re going to be ready to make a ton of noise from start to finish this fall and winter. With that said, there are always a high number of bets on Seattle at the heart of the NFL campaign. However, plenty of people will hit the ground running with futures bets as soon as training camp gets underway for the NFC West side.
