PACQUIAO VS. RIOS BETTING PREVIEW

Manny Pacquiao hasn’t looked like himself in recent fights and the moneyline for boxing bettors doesn’t look the same either.

The former multi-division champ looks to return to the win column against Brandon Rios in Macau, China on Saturday and the odds to back Pacman have seldom been as affordable.

The vacant WBO International Welterweight title is on the line, along with Pacquiao’s fading reputation as a top talent. On the betting line, it’s a -450 wager on Manny over at Bovada, much less than past fights where underdogs were as high as 8/1 and more.

It means a $45 bet on Pacman will return a $10 profit. On the flip side, betting just $10 on the underdog would produce a profit of $32.50 at current prices.

Pacquiao is 54-5-2 but coming off consecutive losses. The boxing betting pages at OddsShark.com show all sportsbooks pricing the challenger Rios at roughly 3/1 odds.

Rios is 31-1-1 with 23 KOs but his style plays into the counter-attacking strengths of the Filipino legend. But bettors who watched Pacman get floored by Juan Manuel Marquez may be tempted to back Rios, where a win will pay as much as +325.

"I wouldn't be surprised to see this go to a decision as Pacman makes sure he wins to stay relevant," said Jack Randall of OddsShark.com. "And he is doubtless very motivated after stating he will win to try to lift the spirits of his countrymen suffering in the wake of that terrible typhoon that destroyed so many Filipino lives."
