FNF 1-27: 

Pretty strong on Amidu in the opener.  Kim has seen better days and his head movement is non-existent once he gets into the fight.  Think Amidu connects all night (or as long as it lasts).  Not sure he stops him, but I think Amidu wins pretty clearly. 

Amidu (+110 @ 5dimes) risking ~2.86 to win ~3.14.

Cool story bro.

FNF 2-3: 

Barthelemy is tall and lanky and I think he'll pose problems for Williams.  Both were standout amateurs, but I think the Cuba has the style for more success in the pros.  Williams has no power at all, so Barthelemy shouldn't be discourage from throwing punches.  Awkward guy and I think he wins a decision.

Barthelemy (+120@ 5dimes) risking ~.91 to win ~1.09.

I tweeted about this one earlier. I REALLY like this play. However, I think he knocks him out. I'm not buying the steam movement on Williams even with the fight being in Vegas. It simply shouldn't matter at all. I have a feeling this turns into a firefight. 

Probably not touching the main event, hammering Cunningham tomorrow. The first fight was a fluke. Look at the weigh in photos. Cunningham looks to be on a different planet physically and ability wise. He would have stopped Hernandez had that fight continued. 

Very cheap price on him, in my eyes.

Good luck this weekend Danno.

Thanks.  Good luck to you on the Cunningham fight.  I think he has the clear advantage and should probably win.  What's your twitter name?

Excited for the card tonight.  Probably won't bet the main event.  Think it will be a good scrap and I'm coming around on Rubio's chances.  Could be a tough night for Jr.  Love Donaire to destroy Vazquez on the undercard.

I'm at -1.77 in here so far.

@SportsSharp on Twitter. Took under 7.5 +145 on DSI earlier. Layed a chalky JCC one unit straight.

JCC is a solid play.  I bet that old dude Butterbean could find Rubio's head "with ease".......at worst, JCC will make it harder than it should have been, but results the same - bet him to win and your bankroll prospers....

GL to all !!

HBO 2-4: 

As I said earlier, I love Donaire to KO Vazquez.  Last time out Donaire faced a world class boxer whose only goal was seeing the final bell.  Tough to KO a guy in that situation.  Vazquez will fight.  Think it could be an early night.

Also taking a small stab on Rubio.  He's a pro and a worker, which Jr. isn't.  Could give Jr. a really rough night.

Donaire/Vazquez under 11.5 rds (-280 @ local) risking ~4.43 to win ~1.57.

Rubio (+330 @ local) risking ~.47 to win ~1.55.

Good luck to everyone who bets tonight.  Unless you're betting the other way.  Then I hope you lose.

Walk,  WTF with Cunningham?  Is he worn out already?  He fought back to make it close, but he was getting hammered early on.  He was in big trouble there.

-6.67 in here.  Should be broke by May/Cotto.  I bet 15 SB props, so I might be broke by today.

The picture that Donaire posted of his hand didn't look too bad.  He also said he didn't go to the hospital because he was partying after the fight.  It seems he's fallen too in love with his power and has stopped working as much during fights.  Looks for one KO shot all the time. 

Chavez is enormous.  Rubio landed a ton of clean shots, but they had no effect.  If he can keep making 160 (allegedly) and showing up at 180 on fight night, he'll be really tough for most MWs.

Really not sure. Maybe it's his time to move on. The worst part about that fight is that Steve would have NEVER had a chance on the cards even if he won 9 rounds. German judges = worst in boxing.

I'm pretty psyched about the Stevenson/Gonzalez fight.  I was waiting to see what the o/u would be and I love under 8.5.  Stevenson's straight left should find Gonzalez all night.  Think this might be pretty quick work for Adonis.

Stevenson/Gonzalez under 8.5 rds (-140 @ 5dimes) risking 3.5 to win 2.5.

Where can I watch the Stevenson/Gonzalez fight?  That firstrowsports doesn't have it (that I see).  Any other sites I can check?

Monster KO by Stevenson in first round.  Down ~4.17.

No action for me on this Showtime card.  Wouldn't be suprised to see PWill smoke Ishida tonight though.  I'm a huge Cloud fan.  Rooting for him in this first bout.

Who is the bigger phony ?  The Cloud or his DRAMA QUEEN  mother. Tavoris knew his mother was full of garbage.

Love Alexander tonight.  Too skilled for Maidana, IMO.  Think he'll box his ears off all night. 

Alexander (-180 @ local) risking ~3.86 to win ~2.14.
