Canelo Alvarez vs Gennadiy Golovkin 3 odds analysis

Boxing gets another great trilogy with Round 3 of Canelo vs. GGG. 

Alvarez is sitting as a -500 favorite for this final fight, despite losing a 12-round decision to Dmitry Bivol in May. That fight, in which Canelo was pegged as a -550 favorite, was supposed to be an easy outing for the WBA light heavyweight champ that would set the table for his third matchup with Golovkin. 

However, Canelo was listless in just the second loss of his career, possibly looking past Bivol to this big payday. Even after the loss, Alvarez’s camp skipped over a potential rematch to win his title back and jumped straight to GGG. 

Golovkin is coming back as a +360 underdog and after being down to +300 at some sportsbooks. He shook off ring rust in his latest bout in April, beating down a quality foe in Ryota Murata in classic GGG fashion. Despite it being his first fight since December 2020, Golovkin still showed devastating punching power and hand speed with a ninth-round TKO.

A Ngannou win would pay out more as he's the underdog at +750. This means that a $100 wager would profit $750.
