Manny Pacquiao a Heavy Favourite Over Antonio Margarito

There is plenty of action and intrigue in the widely-anticipated Manny Pacquiao vs. Antonio Margarito fight this Saturday evening.

The Filipino Congressman comes in as a massive favourite and punters are going to struggle to find any discernable value on Pacquiao to win the fight outright.

The most likely outcome would be a Pacquiao victory by KO, TKO or DQ and that’s priced at odds-on, as well, with a listing of around 1.57 with most major bookmakers. Should the fight go to a decision, we’ve got a 3.5 price and you reckon that will see plenty of bets from those who think this bout could be a little closer than you might originally think.

The media build-up to this one has centered around whether Pacquiao has been distracted by out of the ring issues and that he might not have trained hard enough to win this one. Hopefully Margarito’s gloves turn out to actually be legal this time…

Should Antonio Margarito pull off the victory, this is probably going to be the biggest upset since Pac-Man beat De La Hoya. Margarito is priced at 7.5 to win by KO or TKO while he’s at 13.0 to win by decision.

The fight is not favoured to go the distance and you’re looking at a 1.4 price if the fight ends before the decision. If you do fancy a decision here, the most favoured type of decision is a Pacquiao victory by unanimous decision and that’s priced at around 4.5. Pacquiao to get knocked down and go on to win the fight pays a very solid 7.0.

If you fancy Manny Pacquiao to win the fight in the first 60 seconds, you can lock in a 51.0 price tag.

You reckon that Pacquiao’s trainer Freddy Roach is going to have a very tactical gameplan set up for this one and you genuinely don’t see Margarito getting past Pacquiao’s movement and superior handspeed. He’s got the edge in terms of punching power and Margarito will be looking to do some early damage and then attempt to wear Manny down in the middle rounds. If Margarito is going to win this, he needs to cut Pacquiao early. Otherwise, it looks like we might see Manny stroll to victory once again.
