Chris Algieri is a spoiler but our sharps don’t expect him to do much more than last the distance against Pacquiao. Algieri, is a strong, tough and well-conditioned kid but against Pacquiao is in a different class. Power, handspeed, agility, defense and natural boxing instinct will favor the Filipino over the overachieving Huntington, NY native.

The world wants to see Mayweather vs Pacquiao so if a close fight goes to the scorecards Pac-Man will get the nod. Despite Pacquiao’s reputation as a huge puncher he has not knocked out an opponent since 2009 when he stopped Miguel Cotto in the 12th round. Laying -1250 on Pacquiao moneyline is rich with his odometer running high, having fought nearly 400 rounds as a professional. Bet the OVER on the Total and Pacquiao by decision proposition.

Philadelphia Eagles vs Indianapolis Colts Vegas Odds have Colts -3 with 62% MNF Picks on Indy
Monday Night Football is expected to be a barn burner with Andrew Luck and the high-powered Colts hosting the Eagles at 8:30 PM ET. Philadelphia Eagles vs Indianapolis Colts Vegas Odds MNF have Indy -3 with 62% of the action on the Colts. In NFL week 1 the Colts (0-1) were handled by Denver 24-31 as +8 road underdogs. Philadelphia (1-0) played a Jekyll-n-Hyde game in their opener against Jacksonville to cover as -10 favorites in a 34-17 road win. Our MNF Picks expert panel broke down this AFC vs NFC match-up. Philadelphia Eagles vs Indianapolis Colts Vegas Odds MNF have Philly +140 (Bet $1000 to win $1400) at BOVADA.LV
MNF Picks Analysis: This should be a bombs away affair with two excellent passing offenses facing a pair of suspect secondaries. In a battle of Andrew Luck vs Nick Foles our MNF Picks staff is siding with the Stanford grad Luck at home in the dome. The Colts home-field advantage on MNF is worth 4.0 points alone and a Philadelphia offense with a makeshift offensive line will get thrown around in the trenches. With time to throw, Luck will dissect an Eagles defense that is still adjusting to their newly installed 3-4. Eagles vs Indianapolis Colts Vegas Odds MNF Total is at 54.0

This will not be a one-sided affair with the Eagles heavily armed with game changing playmakers on offense. Without any protection upfront, the young gun Nick Foles will be hard-pressed to find any targets down the field. The lack of a deep passing threat will allow the Colts to dial in on Eagles Pro-Bowl running back LeSean McCoy. Special teams will also favor the Colts with a field flipping Pro-Bowl punter Pat McAfree.

Floyd Mayweather vs Marcos Maidana II Vegas Odds have Maidana +500
Las Vegas, NV – In a superfight being dubbed “Mayhem” Floyd Mayweather Jr. will continue to etch his place in history when he faces Marcos Maidana in only Mayweather’s second career rematch September 13th from Las Vegas. Floyd Mayweather vs Marcos Maidana II Vegas Odds have Mayweather as a heavy -800 moneyline favorite despite Fight Picks experts making a case for a Maidana, 35-4, 31 KO’s, winning in their first scrap. Mayweather, 46-0, 26 KO’s, will be the first to tell you he is the most talented pound-4-pound pugilist ever born but the 37-year old looked mortal against the street fighting bomber Maidana. Can the nasty Argentine brawler make history by beating Mayweather? Our handicappers give away a free Fight Picks play. Floyd Mayweather vs Marcos Maidana II Vegas Odds have Maidana as a +500 moneyline underdog (Bet $100 to win $500) at BOVADA.LV
Free Fight Picks Analysis: Maidana gave Mayweather a run for his “Money” in the first scrap but the intelligent “Pretty Boy” will make adjustments in the return bout. In Mayweather’s only rematch he easily outclassed a similarly styled foe in Jose Luis Castillo. Speed kills and Mayweather’s physical gifts will be on display in this one. Maidana has ordinary speed of both hand and foot and that disadvantage will be his undoing in this fight. Mayweather will use his still useful legs to run, jab and occasionally stand his ground against the heavier. Floyd Mayweather vs Marcos Maidana II Vegas Odds Total is at 11.5 Rounds with the Over -500
Maidana is junkyard dog that will apply pressure all night but he will not put enough leather on “Money” to win over the judges. Mayweather is still slippery to hit in the melon and has conditioned his torso to absorb Maidana’s punishing bodyshots. Mayweather is not a fighter that dominates rounds often because of his limited punch output but he knows how to win and steal rounds. Bet Mayweather to win a decision in the 117-111 to 118-110 range.
