Fight Picks sharps have Hopkins vs Kovalev Vegas Odds at Bernard Hopkins +235
Ring legend Bernard Hopkins will be back in action November 7th from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York when he faces Sergey Kovalev for the I.B.F., W.B.A. and W.B.O. light heavyweight championship. Hopkins vs Kovalev Vegas Odds have Kovalev as a -275 opening moneyline favorite. Hopkins, 55-6-2, 32 KO’s, is still regarded as one of the pound-4-pound best in the game at 49-years young with 494 professional rounds logged. Kovalev, 25-0-1, 23 KO’s, is touted to become one of boxing next great champions but will be taking a step up in class against the legend B-Hop. Our staff gives away a free fight picks play. Hopkins vs Kovalev Vegas Odds have Hopkins as a +235 moneyline underdog at SPORTS BETTING ONLINE
Free Fight Picks Analysis: Hopkins age (49) makes him inviting to bet against but “The Alien” has stayed true to his new moniker, fighting with the vigor of a man 20 years younger. Hopkins was heavily bet against in his last fight against Beibet Shumenov, going from a -900 favorite to only -300 as of fight time. The unheralded top-5 contender Shumenov gave Hopkins a good fight but came up on the short end of a split-decision. Hopkins is a master technician with great defense, accuracy, footwork and toughness. Hopkins vs Kovalev Vegas Odds give Kovalev a 73% chance of winning
The powerful 31-year old Russian Kovalev has blown away B-level competition on his way up the ranks and will face by far his biggest test in B-Hop. “Krusher” is regarded as one of the hardest punching pugilist in boxing with knockout power in every punch. Kovalev’s biggest test came against Brit Nathan Cleverly as a -300 favorite in a bout where Kovalev dominated via 3rd round KO. Despite being so highly regarded, Sergey is relatively untested having only boxed 72 professional rounds.
Free Fight Predictions Summary: Despite his obvious strength, Kovalev was not a top-level amateur and questions remain about his overall ring science. Hopkins is true master at exposing opponents weaknesses and the hittable and sometimes mechanical Kovalev could get taken to school. Kovalev’s best asset is his power but Hopkins has always shown a granite chin. On paper our staff favors Kovalev by a slight margin at -140 moneyline which makes Hopkins a very live underdog. Expect Hopkins to score a close but clear cut decision.

2014 Miami Dolphins Vegas Odds are at +5000 to win Superbowl 50
After a drama filled 2013 season the 2014 Miami Dolphins will be happy to have a clean slate as they hope to make a run at Superbowl 50. 2014 Miami Dolphins Vegas Odds list them at a long 50 to 1 number to win Superbowl 50 but optimism in Miami runs high. A hard-hitting defense and offense led by improving Miami Quarterback Ryan Tannehill is enough for the Dolphins faithful to have belief that they can get back to the playoffs. The New England Patriots have won 12 out of the last 14 AFC East titles but the ‘Phins are poised to make a run with a newly minted offensive line. NFL predictions on Miami vary wildly so our NFL Picks sharps broke down fact from fiction. 2014 Miami Dolphins Vegas Odds are at +5000 (Bet $1000 to win $50,000) to win Superbowl 50 at BOVADA Sportsbook
NFL Picks Sharps Team Strengths: Rabid pass-rush led by two of the games best rushers in Cameron Wake (8.5 Sacks) and Vernon Olivier (11.5 Sacks). Explosiveness at the offensive skill positions with three quality wideouts in Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline and Charles Clay. Hard-hitting secondary that has two physical cornerbacks in Brent Grimes and Cortland Finnegan.
NFL Picks Sharps Team Weaknesses: Offensive line that has potential but must jell very quickly. Stagnant running game that has two question marks in running backs Knowshown Moreno and Lamar Miller. Suspect coverage in the passing game, especially at safety and linebacker. Inept front-office that makes more bone-headed decisions more often than any team in the NFL. 2014 Miami Dolphins Vegas Odds Over/Under Win Total is at 7.5 Wins at BOVADA Sportsbook
NFL Predictions Forecast: Despite having a retooled offensive line Miami will take a step back. The defense is too vulnerable in the passing game and Miami’s offensive air attack lacks punch with Tannehill’s inability to throw deep. The division has gotten better and Miami remains in neutral without enough offense. Expect another 3rd place finish and under .500 record.
NFL Predictions Record: 6-10 (Under 7.5 Wins)
