ARLINGTON, Texas – Canelo Alvarez will defend his WBA and WBC super middleweight belts and will be looking to win the WBO title against Billy Joe Saunders on May 8.
Alvarez is widely considered one of the pound-for-pound best boxers in the world and is a sizable favorite to beat Saunders.
Under 10.5 Rounds (+125)
Alvarez has won 37 of his 55 fights by knockout including his most recent fight in which he won by a third-round KO. Saunders is undefeated and therefore obviously has never been knocked out, but Alvarez has the type of power to put anyone out.
Total Rounds Betting Odds
- Over 10.5 -155
- Under 10.5 +125
If any boxing betting fans think that either boxer will be knocked out, they can get the Under 10.5 rounds with odds of +125.
Alvarez via Decision (+155)
For those who don’t believe Alvarez will find a finish or for those who looking to hedge their Under 10.5 rounds bet, Alvarez by decision at +155 might be worth the play.
Method of Victory Betting Odds
- Alvarez By KO, TKO Or DQ -110
- Alvarez By Decision Or Technical Decision +155
- Saunders By Decision Or Technical Decision +450
- Saunders By KO, TKO Or DQ +2000
- Draw Or Technical Draw +2000
Online sportsbooks have Alvarez as a -700 favorite for a reason, he’s more than likely going to win, it might just be a matter of in what fashion. Over the last five years, Canelo has won five of his eight fights by decision.
If someone is passionate in Alvarez winning this fight, betting on both the Under and Alvarez via decision pretty much guarantees a winning ticket and profitable day.
Obviously, if Saunders wins a decision then all the bets are chalked, but a +450 underdog beating Canelo Alvarez seems very improbable.
