Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao Vegas Odds have Mayweather -350 with 70% Fight Picks on Pac-Man

Floyd Mayweather has reserved his May 2nd fight date for Manny Pacquiao and the sportsbooks have opened the betting line for the public to wager on. Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao Vegas Odds have Maywweather as a 7 to 2 betting favorite with 70% of the action on the underdog Pac-Man. Pacquiao, 57-5-2, 38 KO’s, most recently destroyed contender Chris Algeri via one-sided decision as a 6 to 1 favorite. 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 +250 underdog (Bet $100 to win $250 ) 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 24% 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 +250 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 close but clear cut decision.

Timothy Bradley vs Diego Chavez Vegas Odds

Timothy Bradley vs Diego Chavez Vegas Odds have Bradley -850 with 60% fight picks on the "chalk"

Timothy Bradley vs Diego Chavez Vegas Odds have Bradley -850 with 60% fight picks on the “chalk”

HBO Boxing’s main event Saturday will feature a 12-round welterweight bout between contenders Timothy Bradley and Diego Chavez from Las Vegas. Timothy Bradley vs Diego Chavez Vegas Odds have Bradley as a 17-2 favorite with 60% of the action on the favorite. Bradley, 31-1, 12 KO’s, lost a wide decision  in his rematch with Manny Pacquiao in May but is ranked #6 pound-4-pound by ESPN2 News sharps. Chavez, 23-2, 19 KO’s, was DQ’d in his last bout in August against brawler Brandon Rios. Can the bomber Chavez pull off a huge upset over the former champion, “Desert Storm” Bradley? Our handicappers broke down the Top Rank Boxing promoted main event. Timothy Bradley vs Diego Chavez Vegas Odds have Chavez as a +575 moneyline underdog (Bet $100 to win $575) at  BOVADA.LV

Fight Picks Analysis: Both of these hard-nosed pugs are all heart and this fight should be a war of attrition. The Argentine, Chavez generates great leverage and will have the edge in power while the ultra durable Bradley has the advantage in boxing skill and physical strength. Bradley has a full tool box with the ability to box, slug, bodypunch or counter. Chavez is a pure puncher that unloads combinations with explosion behind a high guard. Timothy Bradley vs Diego Chavez Vegas Odds Total is at 9.5 Rounds with the OVER at -450

Our handicappers expect this fight to be closer than the line indicates but the more versatile Bradley should be able to use his boxing skill and superior defense to outpoint the slugger. Chavez has proven to be durable and Bradley’s punching power is only average despite his Adonis-like physical frame. Chavez will prove to be a game challenger but Bradley will pull away late on the cards. Play the well-connected Top Rank Boxing promoted Bradley on the boxing betting props to win by decision.

Smith has speed and a little explosiveness but Lara’s brilliant boxing mind is nearly untouchable. Lara knows a boxing ring like the back of his hand having had nearly 500 total fights.Lara is too classy and too slick for Ishe to contend with. The Cuban also has some boom in his left hand which could mean that “Sugar Shay” Smith could touch the canvas for the first time in his career. Smith’s only edge would be his ability to hammer the body. Erislandy Lara vs Ishe Smith Vegas Odds Total is at 9.5 Rounds

Our Vegas handicappers caught up with blue-chip fight trainer Milton LaCroix from the Supreme Team Boxing faction in Hollywood, Florida. “Lara is going to give him a Cuban boxing lesson. Lara is going to outclass Smith with his style and finesse. It’s really time for Ishe to retire. Ishe moonlights as a writer and he should really save his brain for the writing game. This is Ishe’s last hurrah.” Lara possesses and octopus-like jab that Smith will be tormented by. Take ESPN2 News #13 ranked pound-4-pound Lara to win a wide decision with Smith losing competitively.  Take this one to the bank and deposit it. Erislandy Lara vs Ishe Smith Vegas Odds give Smith a 7% chance of winning
