Boxing Betting: December Preview

The first weekend of December will offer boxing betting fans a wide selection of boxing odds as numerous cards are scheduled and lines on at least 10 fights are already available.

In defense of his newly won IBF Middleweight title, Darren Barker (26-1) will face a tough test against Felix Sturm (44-3-2). Currently a slight -120 favorite at 5Dimes to hold onto his belt, Barker will need to take advantage of pace and speed if he’s going to hold onto his title this weekend.


Boxing: Pacquiao vs. Rios Betting Odds

Manny Pacquiao hasn’t looked like himself in recent fights and the moneyline for boxing bettors doesn’t look the same either.

The former multi-division champ looks to return to the win column against Brandon Rios in Macau, China on Saturday and the odds to back Pacman have seldom been as affordable.

Boxing Betting: October Preview

Normally a slower month for boxing betting action, October 2013 is stacked with lots of bouts featuring some of the biggest names in the sport. On the line in October will be the WBA, IBF, IBO, Ring, and WBO Heavyweight titles, the WBO Welterweight title, as well as the IBF Light Heavyweight title.

This coming weekend on October 5 all eyes in the boxing betting world will be on the Olympic Arena in Moscow when Wladimir Klitschko (60-3, 51 KOs) puts all his Heavyweight titles on the line against undefeated Olympic Gold medallist Alexander Povetkin (26-0, 18 KO’s).


Mayweather Betting Odds Shorter

Betting on Mayweather has been one of those rare 100% guaranteed wagers, but not everyone can afford to place the bet.

It's different Saturday as he faces Saul Alvarez, because oddsmakers view Canelo as a more serious threat to Mayweather's perfect 44-0 record.

"Normally, laying a bet on Floyd Mayweather forces you to risk so much money that it's not really worth the bet," explains Jack Randall of "When he is a 6-1 favorite, it means betting $600 to turn a $100 profit - pretty risky without a ton of return."


Boxing Betting: September Preview

Boxing betting action for September will feature a WBO Lightweight title fight between Ricky Burns and Raymundo Beltran, a WBC and WBA Light Welterweight title fight between Lucas Martin Matthysse and Danny Garcia, and a WBC and WBA Light Middleweight unification title fight between Saul Alvarez and Floyd Mayweather Jr.


Boxing Odds: August Betting Preview

Boxing odds action for the month of August will include a highly-anticipated WBO Light Heavyweight title fight between Nathan Cleverly and Sergey Kovalev. Boxing betting lines are already available on at least six prize fights scheduled for the first couple weeks of August.

On August 2 a Featherweight matchup with potential top-contender implications will go down between undefeated Javier Fortuna (21-0, 15 KOs, 1 No Contest) and the lethal Luis Franco (11-1, 7 KOs). This one promises to be a war between two hungry contenders trying to earn a title shot.


Boxing Betting Odds: July Preview
