What a fight we have on our hands tonight. Lomachenko is rightfully the favorite due to being the naturally bigger guy. Both guys are supremely skilled but I say a slight edge goes to Rigondeaux. Rigondeaux probably also hits harder if we're just talking about one punch.

We have seen more Lomachenko recently as he has been more active. Rigondeaux on the other hand seems to be more hittable lately...although that looks more like him trying to be a more watchable fighter to the public.

Leading up to the fight Rigondeaux has looked great in his training videos and he has been extremely confident. I think the odds are little too wide and it should be closed...now way should Loma be a 3 to 1 favorite. I'm taking Rigondeaux on pure value alone. He's got to fight the perfect fight and not get forced into fighting lomachenko's fight.

Rigondeaux will need to get Lomachenko's respect early and also fight his counter punching style. Do not be surprised if Rigo gets a knockdown on Lomachenko...most guys will not engage with him but Loma will come forward which could lead into Rigo's left.

rigondeauax has got to fight the perfect fight to win and I have no doubt he will have success early. We will find out if he can sustain it towards the end of the fight...

call me a sucker but I'm going with Rigondeaux at +300

Pettis' best days are behind him. 5 round fight is to Poirier's advantage. He has the wrestling/power advantage while Pettis is the more diverse striker. Pettis best shot is to just go to war and get Poirier to respect him but Pettis will get walked down and stopped in the championship rounds.

Just think Poirier is on the way up. His most recent losses were from big punchers. I don't think Pettis has that one punch power to hurt or get Dustin to respect him.

Poirier -110

Should be a good scrap. This is also why I'm on Charlo. I don't like how Lubin leaves himself open when he punches. Charlo bros just have nasty mean streak to them and they been very sharp lately.

Boxing / Canelo vs GGG Play / View Post
Let's just start off by saying what a MATCHUP. Glad to see this fight happening....Okay this matchup has been dissected to bits and Canelo almost looks like he is the bigger man now. 

It's unknown how this effects his stamina but he tends to fight in spurts and throws flashy judge friendly combinations. And lets also make it clear that GGG is fighting on Canelo's "home" turf. The fans will go nuts for anything Canelo does and it may affect the judges. Most people are talking about KOs but I only see this fight going to the scorecards. 2 out of 3 judges have also given Canelo questionable scorecards (vs mayweather, lara, cotto).

I think GGG will choose to box early and use his superior jab to control the fight. I also think Canelo will fade a bit in the 2nd half and GGG will win the later rounds clearly.

That being said I think the safer play is to play the OVER 11.5 and throwing some on GGG by decisions at +400 (the judges scare me so putting more on the over 11.5)

Over 11.5
GGG by Decision +400

Boxing / Frampton -130 LARGE / View Post
I picked Frampton to win the first one but this time I think Santa Cruz starts a little faster. HE started too slow but finished fast the last fight and Frampton was visibly tired.

Like Cruz by decision +240

Well it's looking like Falcons are going to win this game so you have ea 50% shot of being right.

Not really a crazy prediction/feeling.

Charlo is the name guy but Julian Williams is absolutely better in every aspect. Also if you listen to Charlo he is already talking about moving up in weight as it is hard for him to make 154.

Julian Williams is a beast and getting him at +110 is a steal.

Wililams +110

McGregor would get his butt kicked. The gloves are obviously bigger and Mayweathers defense is too good. Count right all day.

Boxing / ward vs. kovalev / View Post
this is a true pick em fight. You can ask any expert and they are not confident in their pick. Honestly if you wanted to bet then I would throw some money on a DRAW.

People think Kovalev can't win a decision but he certainly can win rounds and box. Wards going to have to double up his jab and work Kovs body to slow him down.

Gun to my head I would pick Ward to win this. He is just so good at neutralizing his opponents strengths...only problem is that he hasn't looked that great since he's been at light heavyweight and clearly KOV is a whole different animal compared to Wards last 3 opponents.


BOL to all

that def was an insane turn of events. San Antonio looked like they had the cover locked up.

I find incredible value on Cuadras vs Gonzalez. Gonzalez is an incredible fighter but he is moving up in weight against a strong/high volume punching boxer.

Cuadras does have some negatives about him as he is largely unknown and tends to fight with his hands down. He is a super aggressive fighter that will throw tons of punches and will continue to come forward often times ignoring his defense. We will see if Gonzalez can keep Cuadras off him.

Again I think there is HUGE value in dropping some money on Cuadras but this is in no way a lock.

The organization refuses to draft/sign another quarterback to challenge Tannehill. He is not the answer. Every one just looks at his stats but if you watch him the entire game he is not very good. Especially when it matters when the game is on the line or 3rd downs.

They have no cornerbacks this year and terrible linebackers..also they are a terrible tackling team.

They do have some good players like: Suh, Parker, Landry, Wake, Jones

Curious why would you bet on A's ML and then their team toal under 3.5.

Wouldn't it be better to bet under on the game and A's ML?

2 defensive touchdowns, Ingrams fumble on the first drive when they were about to score, and mccowns int in the end zone were just killers. Had the saints and they screwed up in those 4 huge plays

I thought I would get better odds on Crawford but they are pretty terrible.

Crawford is elite and will stop Postol.

Is there something that I am missing? I know Melendez has been inactive lately due to his suspension but I found it quite surprising that he is the underdog (+185) vs Barboza.

Barboza seems to have trouble with grinders and that is what Melendez is.

What am I missing?
