Gennady Golovkin is the definite favorite for Saturday night's fight against Matthew Macklin, but by how much? Get the betting lines for HBO Boxing After Dark Golovkin vs. Macklin right here at Bloody Elbow.

Saturday June 29, Bloody Elbow presents live fight coverage of Gennady Golovkin vs. Matthew Macklin, live on HBO. HBO Boxing After Dark Golovkin vs. Macklin airs this Saturday, June 29 live on HBO with a fight time of 9:45 p.m. ET.

Fight odds are now available for Golovkin vs. Macklin. As expected, it's the undefeated Golovkin who comes in as the favorite, and a pretty massive favorite at that. Here are the current odds via Bovada:

Gennady Golovkin -1100
Matthew Macklin +650

That's a huge line for GGG, but it's not ridiculous. No one has yet to truly challenge Golovkin, and despite some solid credentials, Macklin doesn't look like the man to do it. Still, should Macklin pull off the upset, these are odds that will make some very happy.

Also interesting is the over/under for rounds. Bovada again has this pegged at 8.5 rounds, with -250 under and +170 over. That's actually a bit more conservative than I would have anticipated, as the chances of an early Golovkin KO are definitely high.

Overall, these lines clearly show that while Macklin may be something of a test for Golovkin, it's a test most expect the power puncher to pass with little difficulty.
