Mayweather, 47-0, 26 KO’s, outclassed Marcos Maidana in their rematch in a one-sided decision as a 7 to 1 favorite. Which one of these future Hall-Of-Famers will place themselves among boxing’s immortals? Our handicapping sharps broke down the legends. Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao Vegas Odds have Pacquiao as a +195 underdog (Bet $100 to win $195 ) at BOVADA.LV

About Floyd Mayweather Jr. – Boxer: Mayweather stands a shade under 5’8″ but has grown into a solid, long armed (72″ reach) welterweight through weight training. Floyd doesn’t put on much weight after his weigh-in and never weighs more than 152 Lbs. on fight night. Floyd can fight at any distance and has perfect timing because of his alien like amount of sparring. Mayweather is not a big puncher but he is a physical fighter with a mean streak that knows how to finish a hurt foe. Athletically, Mayweather might be a few years removed from his prime with questionable foot-speed but his blinding hand-speed remains. Defensively “Money” is a magician that rarely gets caught with two punches in a row. Mayweather has all of the defensive tools but his real gift is his anticipation of the other man’s next move. On the downside, Floyd has brittle hands, rarely throws in combination and at 37-years old his reflexes have dimmed slightly. Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao Vegas Odds give Pacquiao a 33% chance of winning 

About Manny Pacquiao – Boxer: The Pac-Man is a small, short (5’6″) and short-armed (67″ reach)  welterweight with tree-trunk legs atop a lithe upper-body. Pac-Man has shrunk since firing his strength coach Alex Ariza and now is more of a Jr. welterweight than true 147 Lb. pug. The southpaw throws punches from start to finish at a nice clip but the Filipino’s once Superman-like stamina has dimmed at 35-years old. Pacquiao can still throw heat with good power from the left-side but he weighs only 145 Lbs. at most on fight night. Pacquiao’s real gift are his powerful legs that help him manipulate distance and launch punches from unusual angles. Pacquiao loads up punches occasionally and has questionable balance but his ability to set up huge bombs with his jab is impressive. Pacquiao’s best defense is his buzzsaw offense but under trainer Freddie Roach he has developed in a pretty slick fighter. Pacquiao is durable but his one-punch loss KO to Marquez is proof that his chin is not made of granite. Pacquiao is susceptible to cuts and can get caught with huge counterpunches because of the way he leaps into punches.

Bottom Line: If you like playing underdogs the puncher Pacquiao is worth a tickle at a bloated +195 price but Mayweather should squeak out a win on the scorecards. Mayweather is going to play the role of matador and control Pacquiao’s rushes with his boxing science. Mayweather is bigger, faster and better defensively. Pacquaio has a hole for uppercuts and “Money” will use the punch to his advantage. Bet Mayweather to win a razor close decision.

NCAA Basketball Picks: Miami vs Richmond Vegas Odds

Richmond vs Miami Vegas Odds have UM +2.5 with 57% betting picks on UM's Tonye Jekiri

Richmond vs Miami Vegas Odds have UM +2.5 with 57% 2015 NIT picks on UM’ and center Tonye Jekiri

Tonight at 7 PM ET from the Robins Center the Richmond Spiders will host the Miami Huricanes on ESPN in the 2015 NIT Tournament semifinal. Miami vs Richmond Vegas Odds have Richmond as -2.5 point “chalk” with 57% of the action on the betting underdog. The “U” (23-12 SU 15-17-1 ATS) was snubbed by the NCAA Tournament but are live underdogs to win the NIT title with two sound wins over North Carolina Coastal and Alabama. The creepy Spiders (21-13 SU 15-14-2 ATS) are sleepers that have covered in consecutive bouts against St. Francis NY and in overtime against Arizona State. The sharps are backing Miami but is Richomnd for real? Our expert Vegas Sharps panel of handicappers give away free picks. Miami vs Richmond Vegas Odds point spread is at Richmond -2.5 at -110 juice at SPORTSBOOK.ag

NCAA Basketball Picks In-Depth: Miami is too athletic and tall with a 1″ height advantage along their starting five. Richmond plays a stingy brand of defense but the overall chemistry of Miami appears to have come together and the have the more talented scorers from 3-point range. Miami has shooters all over the court and could get back one of their best players in starting point guard Angel Rodriguez (questionable). Miami vs Richmond Vegas Odds Total is at 133.0 points at SPORTSBOOK.ag

Vegas Sharps Bottom Line: Miami has played the tougher competition in the ACC and have played with a huge chip on their shoulder after the NCAA Tournament snub. Richmond can match Miami’s shooting at mid-range but the Canes can score fast and furiously. Miami’s physicality in the paint could also be telling with 7’0″ UM center Tonye Jekiri (8.7 PPG 10.1 REB 1.5 BPG) giving the Canes and interior force. Bet Miami to win by a double-digit cover on the spread as road underdogs in the Spiders backyard.

Kentucky vs West Virginia Vegas Odds have Willy Cauley-Stein and UK -13

Kentucky vs West Virginia Vegas Odds have Willy Cauley-Stein and UK -13 with 43% Sweet 16 Picks on UK

Kentucky vs West Virginia Vegas Odds: Thursday March 26th from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland Ohio the 2015 NCAA Tournament betting favorite Kentucky will face an overachieving West Virginia squad at 9:45 PM ET. Kentucky (36-0 SU 18-16-2 ATS) has looked every bit the part as the March Madness betting favorite with a drumming of Hampton in the opening round followed by double-digit win against Cincinnati. West Virginia (25-9 SU 19-13 ATS) has covered the spread in the first two rounds of the 2015 NCAA Tournament as favorites against Buffalo and in their last outing against Maryland. Kentucky vs West Virginia Vegas Odds have the Kentucky at -110 to win the 2015 NCAA Championship at SPORTSBOOK.ag

Kentucky (1) vs West Virginia (5) Sweet 16 Picks: Kentucky has been the “chalk” to take home this year’s hardware but only 43% of the gamblers are taking the Wildcats to cover the fat -13 point spread. West Virginia is well coached and has played clean basketball in the first two rounds. The Wildcats however have the length, depth, improvisation and unselfish play that is almost impossible to contend with. The Mountaineers tough but gimmicky defense will be overwhelmed by a Wildcats defense that is downright nasty. Kentucky vs West Virginia Vegas Odds Total is at 136.5 Points

Vegas Sharps Bottom Line: Kentucky is a formless team of beauty with an argument to be made as one of the most talented ever. Play Kentucky to cover the fat number against a game but outclassed Mountaineers squad.
