Khan vs. Algieri is the latest from PBC boxing, and on paper it seems like a close fight. Interestingly though, that's not what you see reflected in the odds. Take a look at the latest fight odds, courtesy of Bovada:
Amir Khan -1600
Chris Algieri +800
As always, your odds primer: the negative number means Amir Khan is the favorite. You would need to bet $1,600 on him to win $100 (plus your $1,600). If you bet $100 on Algieri and he wins, you win $800 (plus your original $100 back). In short, Khan is a wide, wide favorite.
I have to say, while I too would ultimately pick Khan to win, this is a wider margin than expected. Perhaps his domination at the hands of Manny Pacquiao has led to a serious loss of any confidence in Algieri? Regardless, there's money to be made here on Algieri for anyone willing to take that chance.
Opening the broadcast is a much closer fight, as Javier Fortuna takes on Bryan Vasquez. Fortuna is the favorite by the slimmest of margins at -130, while odds for Vasquez are even.
So what say you, BE readers - will you be betting?
