Where To Watch: 


Why Bet on Canelo Álvarez?

Álvarez is a good, quick-handed athlete who was born with the demeanor of a fighter, which is why he was competitive the minute he turned professional as a 15-year-old.

However, his most significant gifts are his toughness and innate work ethic. Those strengths have allowed him to make the most out of his natural ability, which has led to a first-ballot Hall of Fame career.

He’s excellent at cutting off the ring and landing punishing blows. He also became a good defensive fighter, which lifted his all-around game.

Why Bet on Jermell Charlo?

Jermell Charlo, the hot 154-pound champion, is moving up two weight classes to challenge a 168-pound king.

His God-given nasty streak and killer instinct, when he has an opponent hurt, are evidence of his fighting spirit.

Charlo is known for his explosiveness and ability to hurt opponents but he’s also a talented, well-schooled technician under respected trainer Derrick James. He has become something akin to a knockout artist in recent years. 

Final Betting Analysis – Canelo Álvarez vs. Jermell Charlo

We are assuming that Álvarez’s subpar performances in his last three fights can be attributed in part to an injured left wrist that has been surgically repaired.

If that’s true and he’s healthy, this matchup becomes a good big man vs. a good little man. And we know what generally happens in that scenario. We envision Álvarez doing what he has typically done, stalk his opponent, cut off the ring, wear his opponent down with punishing punches, and either score a late stoppage or win a clear decision.

If Canelo isn’t 100% healthy or his apparent decline is the result of other factors, then he’ll be in trouble. We don’t think Charlo can hurt Álvarez but he can outbox and outwork the favorite if he’s vulnerable. At this moment though, we just don’t see that happening. Go for a tight-divided decision victory in favor of Canelo.

Go for a victory for Canelo Alvarez at -416. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $24.04 for a total payout of $124.04.
