Those bettors don't know s hit about boxing all they know Floyd got all the favors during the negotiation as simple as that.

there's no catchweight clause, that is why....if it was a catchweight fight in pacquiao's favor, you bet that pacquiao would be the overwhelming "overdog" favorite..... :biglaugh:

Floyd is bigger ...

Also no. 1 lb-for-lb at the moment in most lists.

The betting odds are getting smaller though, as bettors are coming fast to bet on the Pacman.

Floyd is "undefeated" 47 times; Manny has lost a few times, so logically the odds are in Floyd's favor.

Sa karera or sabong, mas confident tao tumaya sa undefeated. But that doesn't stop you from going against the common thinking.

Odd makers, bettors are holding to FMJ's zero loss.

My unbiased assessment , tells this is 55/45 in favor of FMJ-- the fact that it's Manny has the burden, of doing the hardwork of chasing FMJ, and be very quick and precise, without gassing out through the end of the fight. FMJ will just do what he'll do best and that is to keep distance, box, time and wait for Manny to commit mistakes, and use his speed, footwork and ring intelligence.

I hope I'm wrong with my assessment. I wish Manny wins this one.

This is a no-brainer. Floyd is defnitely the favorite. In fact, Id prefer if Pacman was even more an underdog. The pressure is on Floyd. he is putting all his belts on the line and his undefeated record on the line. Right now, LAS vegas has pacman about 3-1 underdog.

The betting odds is set so the bet and payout even out with Vegas keeping 10%.
More people are betting on Flop so they have to reduce the payout on those bets.
The smart money comes late.
