Boxing Odds to Pounce On Before 2011 is Out

There are a lot of big boxing fights taking place before 2011 is over with, and that also means that there are a lot of enticing boxing odds to take advantage of. Once you know what the lines are, and which fights you can bet on, you'll be able to get in on all of the fun for yourself. Here's a quick rundown of some of the best boxing odds on fights in the remainder of 2011.

The action will of course start this weekend, with Manny Pacquiao squaring off against Juan Manuel Marquez. Pacquiao is a huge favorite in the fight, going off at about -1000, while Marquez is at +550.

The draw is at +2500, and that's not necessarily a bad wager, given the extremely close history between these two. The general consensus is that Pacquiao will win this fight because he has improved so much, but don't discount their history and their two previous fights.

In December, a very intriguing rematch will be taking place between Abner Mares and Joseph Agbeko. Due to the nature of their first fight, a controversial win for Mares, the two are basically even right now, each at between -110 and -125. Agbeko would have won the first fight were it not for terrible refereeing, and Mares's fouls, but something tells me Mares will have the edge this time out as he continues to improve, and as he has youth in his corner.

Another very interesting rematch takes place on the same night, this one between Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito. Margarito knocked Cotto out in their first fight, but since then he has suffered multiple knockout losses, and been accused of his hand-wrapping scandal, for which he served a one-year suspension. Therefore, the oddsmakers are making Cotto the favorite, at -200, and Margarito the underdog, at +150. The draw here has been set at +2000.

A few weeks later, representing the last major boxing match of 2011, is the Super Six Finals match-up between Andre Ward and Carl Froch. The undefeated Ward is the betting favorite, at -275. Froch is the underdog at +200, and the draw is at +2000. Ward is expected to win, but getting an opportunity to bet on an accomplished, seasoned and dangerous fighter like Froch in his prime at +200 might be too good to pass up on.

Of course, there's also plenty of MMA odds and betting that you can get in on as well. All of the focus is on this weekend's Cain Velasquez vs. Junior Dos Santos match, which will be televised live, for free, on Fox, but there's a slew of intriguing MMA fights taking place at every level of the game, and even intriguing women's MMA rematches, like this one between Miesha Tate and Sarah Kaufman.

So who will you be favoring, and how will you get involved in the action? There are ample opportunities, tons of big and interesting boxing matches before the end of the year, tons of action in MMA, and more.

  1. Yeah me too, I’m not a fan of Pacman as well. Pero at his age I really feel like he needs to rertie na. Marami ng Hermes si Jinkee and they have a Political life back home. It’s enough hehehe! But kidding aside, I’m so proud that he still shows a smile when he woke up after being knocked out. Go Pacman parin!CE 12/11

  2. Call me wind because I am absolutely blown away.
