Pacquiao Clottey Odds - Boxing Bettors Seek Value

Manny Pacquiao’s former sparring partner doesn’t think PacMan will knock out Joshua Clottey when the men battle Saturday in Texas. Many observers feel Clottey’s stellar defense and ability to block punches will also make it hard for a knockout to happen.

Then there’s the fact Clottey could be as much as 15 pounds heavier at fight time. Does all this point to a decision in the welterweight title fight? There are plenty of boxing oddsmakers out there who are betting that it will happen this way.

Pacquiao is a huge -800 favorite on the boxing odds menu at Bovada making Clottey a huge +500 longshot. With PacMan being such a prohibitive favorite, bettors are looking elsewhere for value in betting the fight, starting with over under rounds wagering. The OVER 9.5 is the favorite position at -165 while those thinking the fight will end earlier get a +125 incentive to do so. Clottey is tough and has a solid chin but Pacquiao has taken apart three tough customers in his past three fights (Miguel Cotto, Ricky Hatton and Oscar De La Hoya). And to the earlier point of Clottey being the bigger man, that didn’t bother Pacquiao in those earlier fights as he destroyed all three. “I just want to make my people happy,” Pacquiao told reporters. “I don’t worry about a knockout. It’s nothing personal. I’m just going to do my job.” Boxing bettors who think Clottey can win a decision would be rewarded with a 10/1 payout. That means $100 wagered would pay out $1,000 if he can win. And of all the longshot bets available, what is the biggest on the Pacquiao Clottey odds list at Bovada? It’s Clottey to win in a first-round knockout, which is a 90/1 bet. It’s only 30/1 for Manny to knock out Clottey. Check out the variety of boxing odds and prop bets available on this big fight.
