Charlo vs Molina Vegas Odds have Charlo -215 on the Canelo Alvarez vs Angulo undercard
The Canelo Alvarez vs Alfredo Angulo undercard will feature undefeated Jermall Charlo squaring off against Carlos Molina for the I.B.F. jr. middleweight title. Charlo vs Molina Vegas Odds have Jermall Charlo, 17-0, 13 KO’s, as a 2 to 1 favorite over Molina, 22-5, 6 KO’s, according to fight picks experts. Our handicappers broke down the PPV bout scheduled to go off at 10 PM ET from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Charlo vs Molina Vegas Odds have Charlo at -235 moneyline (Wager $2150 to win $1000) at SPORTS BETTING ONLINE
Fight Picks Analysis: Molina is a durable spoiler that comes to fight but against the versatile and fast Charlo he will be outgunned. The 6’0″ Charlo is an electrifying offensive fighter with power in both hands. Molina is cagey and will make for an elusive target but eventually he will get hammered shooting his .22 against Charlo’s .357 Magnums in both mitts. Molina works the body effectively and has a good left hook but his physical limitations will keep him a step behind Charlo. Charlo vs Molina Vegas Odds have Molina as a +185 moneyline underdog at SBO
Jermall Charlo is a fast rising prospect and the Canelo Alvarez vs Alfredo Angulo undercard will be his chance to showcase his skills. Against a similar foe, Molina gave deadly puncher James Kirkland a helluva a fight until his corner got him DQ’d. Charlo is much better technically than Kirkland however and is 3″ taller than the 5’9″ Molina. Molina has never been stopped but our sharps expect Jermall Charlo to end that streak in spectacular fashion. After being arrested Thursday Molina’s task of focusing on Charlo becomes even more daunting. Bet Charlo big to leave Molina on the canvas.
Fight Picks Play: Jermall Charlo -235

Canelo Alvarez vs Alfredo Angulo Vegas Odds have Canelo at 10 to 1 “chalk”
A firefight between two hard-hitters lands on the Vegas strip when Jr. middleweights Canelo Alvarez and Alfredo Angulo fight in a 12-rounder on PPV. Canelo Alvarez vs Alfredo Angulo Vegas Odds have Alvarez listed as a 10 to 1 betting favorite. Canelo Alvarez, 42-1-1, 30 KO’s, is coming off a one-sided decision loss to pound-4-pound champion Floyd Mayweather six months ago. Angulo, 22-3, 18 KO’s, uncharacteristically turned his back and quit in the 10th round of a close fight nine months ago against W.B.A. champ Erislandy Lara. Our fight picks sharps broke down the betting lines. Canelo Alvarez vs Alfredo Angulo Vegas Odds have Angulo as a +600 moneyline underdog (Bet $1000 to win $6000) at SPORTS BETTING ONLINE
Fight Picks Analysis: “El Perro” Angulo is a strong hombre that comes forward and launches bombs but Canelo should outbox him fairly easy. Alvarez is a refined technician that is equipped with the All-Star tools one would expect from an elite young pugilist. Angulo is a “bully type” that looks great when he is winning but quickly loses bravado once he gets hammered back. Alvarez will be able to set up his brutal combinations behind the jab against the stationary head of “El Perro” who rarely slips a punch. Canelo’s smooth footwork should also give the plodding slugger Angulo fits. Canelo Alvarez vs Alfredo Angulo Vegas Odds Total is at 8.5 Rounds with the Over at -140 at SBO
Angulo comes wide with his punches and Canelo will counterpunch the wild swings with heavy hooks, uppercuts and crosses. Angulo could have his moments early against the slow starting Alvarez but once the younger and faster fighter hits his stride it will be game over for Angulo. Expect Alvarez to easily outbox the slower Angulo on his way to a wide decision win or late stoppage.

Vegas Odds on Michael Sam being drafted are at 4 to 1 he will not be selected
Let the sideshow begin with the NFL’s first openly gay player Michael Sam slated to enter the 2014 NFL Draft. Vegas Odds On Michael Sam Being Drafted have been released with the 5th round listed as the most likely round Sam will be selected. The All-American linebacker from the 8th ranked Missouri Tigers said that his teammates in college accepted his sexuality and never talked about it. The NFL is a different animal altogether with a religious subculture inside of every locker room. Opinions vary wildly on this topic and our NFL picks sharps broke down what will most likely unfold for the gay player. Vegas Odds On Michael Sam Being Drafted have Michael Sam not being drafted at +400 (Wager $1000 to win $4000) at CARBON SPORTS
NFL Picks Analysis: In a sense the Michael Sam story is equal to the media circus created by Jonathan Martin and the Miami Dolphins last season. Whispers around the league are that Jonathan Martin’s problems had much to do with the same issues that Sam is bringing to the table. Regardless of where Sam ends up it will be lights, camera, action as big as any major motion picture. For the most part, NFL general managers and head coaches are not fans of too much lights, camera and action. Because of this fact, some G.M’s have downgraded Sam’s status or removed from their 2014 NFL draft board altogether.
The bible says that it is devilish to lie with another man and this will not be lost on some NFL bible thumpers. On the flip-side, empathy is innate part of the human character and Sam could be accepted in certain NFL lockerooms. Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy has already stated that if a guy is a good player it would not matter if he is gay or not. From a performance standpoint the 6’2″ 260 Lb. linebacker has quick 4.75 40-speed and was projected as a 3rd rounder until he came out. Because of this upside our handicappers are forecasting that a team in the last round of the draft will give Sam a chance to make their roster. Bet that Michael Sam gets drafted in the 7th round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
