Boxing Betting Odds: March Preview
The month of March offers bettors a wide array of boxing odds.
Action includes a WBO Lightweight World title match, a rematch for the British and Commonwealth Super Middleweight title, and a bout between two former Light Middleweight champions that’s been closely handicapped.
On March 10 newly-crowned WBO Lightweight champion Ricky Burns will defend his title for the first time when he steps into the ring against former WBA Lightweight champion Paulus Moses.
Burns is currently a heavy -650 favorite. He has stated publicly that he expects a tough challenge against Moses, but oddsmakers at 5Dimes seem to think differently. Moses will pay upset boxing odds of +475 and will need to regain the form that made him the champion three years ago just to compete with Burns.
On March 16 George Groves will put his two titles on the line in a rematch against Kenny Anderson. Oddsmakers at 5Dimes have boxing odds of -550 on Groves to retain his British and Commonwealth Super Middleweight titles, while the Anderson upset payout is currently at +425.
Groves should continue his undefeated rise towards a world title shot against Anderson. He stopped the challenger in the sixth round of their first fight, and if anything he has improved since then. At -550 this could be the cheapest price you’ll get on Groves for a long time.
James Kirkland will look to continue his strong comeback with a win over WBO Light Middleweight champion Carlos Molina. According to the boxing odds at 5Dimes Kirkland will be the favorite, and currently comes with a -240 price.
Despite the fact that Carlos Molina is undefeated in his last twelve fights, oddsmakers at 5Dimes have him as the +180 underdog.
Kirkland will hold the power edge; he’s KOed four of his last five opponents and has looked very good. This -240 price could be the best boxing odds bargain of the month.
