Mayweather Ortiz Odds Favor Decision Win

You must have quite a bit of money to bet on Floyd Money Mayweather Saturday as he defends his WBC welterweight belt against Victor Ortiz.

Mayweather has been a steady favorite and a big one heading into this fight, at -650 at Bovada. The hard-punching Ortiz, a southpaw who deefated unbeaten Andre Berto in April, pays a big +450 profit for the upset.


Mayweather Ortiz odds highlight September

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has only fought twice in nearly four years but he found ways to keep himself in the public eye.

And being 41-0 and remaining in the public eye is a good way to make yourself a huge boxing betting favorite. That’s what’s happening Sept. 17 when he faces hard-punching Victor Ortiz, a fight many hope is a prelude to a superfight between Pretty Boy Floyd and Manny Pacquiao.

August 13 will be a live date for boxing action with three fights on tap. Betting options range from a lopsided mismatch to a near-even opportunity on an undefeated up-and-comer.

5Dimes is offering action on the undefeated Abner Mares (21-0, 13 KOs) against Joseph Agbeko (28-2, 22 KOs). These two were originally set to meet back in April, but a health issue caused Agbeko to postpone the week of the fight. It will finally go down on the 13th at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Boxing Betting Odds: July Preview

The month of July gets started with a bang for boxing fans as Wladimir Klitschko returns to the ring Saturday night in his latest title defense against David Haye.

Not only will Klitschko be defending his numerous titles against Haye, but he can also add another belt to his already crowded waist. The fight is a unification bout for the WBO, IBF, IBO, and Ring Magazine Heavyweight titles that Klitschko holds, and the WBA Heavyweight title owned by Haye.


Boxing Betting Odds: June Preview

The June slate of boxing matches gets underway this weekend with notable bouts around the world, starting in the U.K. with a heavily-favored Mikkel Kessler versus Mehdi Bouadla.

Kessler is the reigning WBC Super Middleweight champion emeritus, but his title won't be on the line when he faces Bouadla. Judging by the odds on the fight at 5Dimes Kessler is expected to roll over Bouadla, who the oddsmakers don't think has a chance. At 5Dimes Kessler is a -1800 favorite, while Bouadla is a +1150 longshot.


Pascal vs. Hopkins Boxing Odds

After another war of words outside the ring Jean Pascal and Bernard Hopkins finally get to trade blows in the ring this weekend when they face off in a Light Heavyweight championship rematch.

When Hopkins and Pascal do go toe-to-toe on Saturday night it will have been almost five months since they last met up in the ring. The initial fight between Pascal, the reigning WBC, IBO, and Ring Magazine Light Heavyweight champion, and Hopkins took place on December 18, 2010, and ended in controversy.
