    Boxing Picks 2017 Thread

    Figured I'd try this out. I can usually spot decent lines, though I only wager 1-2 times per month on this sport. Let's see if I can put some wins together...

    Mikey Garcia to win (-200): 10 units to win 5.

    NOT Frampton inside distance (-312): 15.5 units to win 5.

    These are 2 very solid bets.
    I'm on Mikey Garcia as well.
    Also no way Santa Cruz will get finished inside the distance. This fight has a controversial decision written all over it.

    That seems like a pretty aggressive play. Out of curiosity, what's your unit size?

    $2,000 boxing bankroll. $20 = 1 unit. Not a large chunk of money by any means but I bet in large portions...so it sort of evens out. 70% of my bankroll on 4 fights already lol.

    I have my probability breakdowns completed weeks before these lines open. Prop bets for this fight just dropped an hour ago.
    This line is at an 84.5% probability...my assessment says it should be 88% (or -733).

    Lines of my first 3 bets have already moved from:
    -200/-240
    -312/-440
    -150/-188

    I have a feeling this line may move against me, given that Zlat can punch. But late money seems to be favoring Garcia thus far so who knows. Anyways, I pulled the trigger just based off the gap between odds/probability. My strategy is to bet well priced favorites. You'll rarely see an underdog bet here.

    Confirmed. Wager refunded, bet canceled. Shame too I got that at a really good price, probably won't even bet it once they reschedule.

    What do you think of a parlay with Rau'shee Warren(-450) and Adrien Broner(-300)?

    Broner is not a fighter I would want to be laying a price with, especially against a pressure fighter, the style which gives him fits. He's fighting at home so he SHOULD win and get the decision if it comes to that, but there's obviously always the possibility of a draw. Warren SHOULD win but I honestly haven't seen a lot of him. I know there's some hype behind him though. You could bring the -185 odds down to -149 or so if you throw Charlo on there over Charles Hatley.

    Sorry just saw this. Yeah Broner is too complacent in the ring...I'd never bet him.

    Garcia by decision +400 is mad, you could hedge with Thurman decision +130 as well. Odds are it goes to the cards, either way. Of course a small sprinkle on the draw.

    I agree with this fight going the distance. I don't think either guy will get in too much trouble and I doubt that a stoppage will come from a corner or referee. I'm currently on Garcia-Thurman Over 10.5 at -205. Great boxing and UFC this weekend!

    What do you think of Amir Mansour vs Travis Kauffman?

    Also over/under 7.5 rounds for the GGG fight?

    Gennady Golovkin v. Daniel Jacobs Under 7.5RDS at (-135) is my play for the HBO PPV. I think Jacobs will be very aggressive and that Triple G will do some damage in the early rounds.

    I think the fight goes at least 8 but that's just my opinion. Jacobs at home will bring it.

    Again sorry for the delay. Good win for Mansour. Probably wouldn't have touched the fight due to Mansour's age...guy is tough though. Whooped Breazale before biting off his own tongue lol.

    7.5 is such a perfect o/u for the GGG fight. Damn the bookies. I'm seeing it at -/+150. If anything the over would tempt me, simply because it's the +. But I play good odds not good props, so I'm inactive (again) this weekend.

    Rematches are never good odds wise. Not sure why a rematch is even happening, Linares beat him soundly the first time out. I'd say goes the distance (-150) isn't a bad play. Might throw a small amount down, not sure yet.
