Rigondeaux vs Agbeko Odds have the champ at 20-1
Cuban sensation Guillermo Rigondeaux will be in the HBO Boxing spotlight tonight when he defends his W.B.A. 122 Lb. title against tough contender Joseph Agbeko from Ghana. Rigondeaux vs Agbeko Odds have Rigondeaux as a heavy -2000 moneyline favorite. The 12-round main event will be broadcast from Atlantic City, New Jersey. Our fight picks experts broke down the W.B.A. title bout with an in-depth preview with prediction. Rigondeaux vs Agbeko Odds have Agbeko as a +1500 underdog (Wager $1000 to win $15,000) at Carbon Sports
Fight Picks Analysis: The Cuban southpaw Rigondeaux, 12-0, 8 KO’s, fights like a cobra with his left hand cocked, patiently waiting for the opportunity to unleash his deadly left cross. Rigondeaux doesn’t throw many punches but is sniper accurate offensively and possesses an air-tight defense. The awkward slugger Agbeko, 29-4, 22 KO’s, fights in a herky jerky way and launches bombs from all angles. Agbeko is a tough fighter that has never been stopped in 198 pro rounds but is hittable and wide with his punches. Rigondeaux vs Agbeko Odds Total is at 9.5 Rounds with the Over at -260.
The champion Rigondeaux is coming off a 203 day layoff and was snubbed by HBO Boxing following his upset win (+175) over Nonito Donaire to win the title. That sort of disrespect may have caused the newly crowned champ to become bitter with the sport and unfocused. Agbeko is awkward as they come and has big-time power. For all of Rigondeaux’s skill he can be outworked by more active fighters and Agbeko has a good motor. Take a flier on the gutsy fighter from Ghana to spring the upset over the Cuban.
Fight Picks Play: Agbeko +1500

Zab Judah vs Paulie Malignaggi Odds have Zab 7-5
A clash of verbal swordsman from Brooklyn will collide in Showtime Boxing’s main event when Zab Judah faces Paulie Malignaggi from the Barclay’s center in Brooklyn. Zab Judah vs Paulie Malignaggi Vegas Odds have Judah at -165 moneyline. Judah, 42-8, 29 KO’s, most recently dropped a hard-fought decision to W.B.A. Jr. welterweight champion Danny Garcia 221 days ago. Malignaggi, 32-5, 7 KO’s, is coming off arguably the best performance of his career, a decision loss to W.B.A. welterweight champion Adrien Broner 165 days ago. Below is an in-depth preview and prediction for this Showtime Boxing card from our fight picks sharps. Zab Judah vs Paulie Malignaggi Vegas Odds have Malignaggi as a +145 underdog (Wager $1000 to win $1450) at Carbon Sports
Fight Picks Analysis: Malignaggi’s best asset is his fast mitts and when he is not quicker than his foes he usually gets beat up. Zab Judah, 36, is a touch faster than the Italian and his hands are much heavier. Malignaggi,33, is a fighter who’s punch couldn’t bust a grape, relying on timing, footwork and an educated jab shot from the hip. The southpaw Judah is a veteran boxer/puncher who fights out of a shell, firing explosive combinations in spurts. Judah’s main drawback has been his stamina, with his abundance of fast twitch fibers probably the culprit behind his late fight fades.
Malignaggi is a smart pug that is could be most accurately described as the modern day Willie Pastrano. Judah however has gotten better with age and will exploit Malignaggi’s lack of power with pressure and faster hands. Malignaggi will run the whole fight and steal some rounds with his activity rate but “Super” Zab will bust up “The Magic Man’s” delicate mug. Expect the fragile handed Malignaggi to hurt his own right hand and fight one-handed most of the bout and be unable to keep the stronger Judah off him. Bet Judah to win a 116-112, 115-113 type decision. Zab Judah vs Paulie Malignaggi Vegas Odds Total is at 9.5 Rounds with the Over at -660.
Fight Picks Play: Zab Judah -145 (Wager $4800 to win $3000)

Cameron Wake leads Miami who is +2 on the Vegas Odds
Sunday in a crucial NFC East match-up the New York Jets will host the Miami Dolphins at 1 PM ET from East Rutherford, NJ. Dolphins vs Jets Vegas Odds opened at Jets -1 but has inflated to -2.Miami (5-6 SU 6-5 ATS) hung tough against NFC juggernaunt Carolina but lost 16-20 in the final seconds of week 12. New York (4-6 SU 6-5 ATS) is coming off consecutive road losses with the offense unable to get anything going in a 3-19 loss at Baltimore in week 12. Dolphins vs Jets Vegas Odds have Miami as +115 (Wager $1000 to win $1150) underdogs at Carbon Sports
Week 13 NFL Picks Analysis: Miami has surprised despite the circus surrounding the team and new O-line addition Bryant McKinnie (6’8″ 360 Lb.) has helped solidify the offensive line at LT. The ‘Phins front will also receive a boost with All-Pro center Mike Pouncey returning to the lineup after missing the last two games. New York could be without #1 CB Antonio Cromartie who is ailing with a hip injury. Cromartie’s injury could provide a match-up advantage for Miami WR Mike Wallace (4.35 40-speed 40″ vertical leap) against Jets CB Dee Milliner. New York QB Geno Smith (4.55 40-speed) has thrown the ball very poorly of late (1 TD-10 INT last six games) and will be handing off to banged up starting RB Chris Ivory (ankle). Jets backup RB Bilal Powell (3.9 YPC 1 TD) has been very ordinary.
The Jets have played well at home (4-1 SU 4-1 ATS)) but Miami knows this is a must win and have the better signal-caller in Ryan Tannehill. New York has been blown out in a few games this year and Miami has been more consistent overall. On special teams New York has the slight edge at kicker but otherwise are even. Miami’s suffocating pass-rush led by Cameron Wake should force erratic Jets QB Smith into costly turnovers that will swing the game in Miami’s favor. Smith’s best target Santonnio Holmes also is not 100% with a hamstring injury. Dolphins vs Jets Vegas Odds Total is at 40.0 points.
