Odds Favouring Pacquiao

British fighter Ricky ‘The Hitman’ Hatton goes into Saturday’s contest as the underdog with most online bookmakers.

Thursday 30th April 2009



The eyes of the boxing world will turn to Las Vegas this weekend as British fighter Ricky ‘The Hitman’ Hatton takes on Manny ‘The Pacman’ Pacquiao at the MGM Grand Garden. Organisers are expecting a capacity crowd of 16,000 on Saturday night for the twelve-round fight for the IBO and Ring Magazine World Junior Welterweight titles. Filipino Pacquiao defeated American boxer Oscar De La Hoya in early December and the 30-year-old goes into this weekend’s match as favourite with online bookmakers ToteSport.com and PaddyPower.com listing him at odds of 2/5. BetFred.com is slightly more cautious at 4/9 alongside SportingBet.com, BlueSq.com, 888Sport.com, StanJames.com, Ladbrokes.com and ExtraBet.com while Bet365.com and Expekt.com have Pacquiao at 5/11. BoyleSports.com is currently listing 1/2 alongside VictorChandler.com, SkyBet.com, WilliamHill.com and Coral.co.uk. Although the underdog, Manchester-born Hatton has pledged to upset Pacquiao in this 140-pound fight but bookies are cautious, with BoyleSports.com, VictorChandler.com, SkyBet.com, Coral.co.uk and WilliamHill.com offering him at odds of 6/4. Bettors can get 13/8 from Ladbrokes.com, ExtraBet.com and StanJames.com while 888Sport.com, PaddyPower.com, BlueSq.com, BetFred.com and ToteSport.com are showing 7/4. Either way, bookies believe that this contest will not end in a draw as the best online odds available on this eventuality is the 20/1 from BlueSq.com, StanJames.com, 888Sport.com, Coral.co.uk and WilliamHill.com. Even longer, PaddyPower.com, SkyBet.com and Expekt.com are listing 25/1 while Betfair.com has gone with 41/1.
