The explosive Canadian belt holder Bute, 30-0, 24 KO’s, is a top-20 pound-4-pound pugilist and is a solid 2-1 boxing odds betting favorite over the cagey Froch, 28-2, 20 KO’s. Bute, 32, is off a one sided decision win over rugged gatekeeper Glen Johnson in a fight where his speed was overwhelming. The last time out of the gate, Froch, 34, was outclassed by top-5 pound-4-pound charge Andre Ward but managed to go the distance upright.

The Lucian Bute vs Carl Froch Odds have Bute as a -220 ($2200 to win $1000) boxing odds favorite at

Boxing Picks Analysis: The 6’1″ Froch is as game as they come and has 2″ in reach over the elusive 6’1″ 1/2″ Bute but he will have a hard time catching the slick southpaw with more than one punch at a time. Lucian Bute’s one punch power, handspeed, combination punching and agility all  register a notch above the tenacious Brit’s. Froch is a warrior with plenty of beard and heart but Bute has a “special” quality to his science that Froch does not have. Glen Johnson fought Froch to a Majority Decision the fight before Bute completely dominated the aging “Road Warrior” Johnson. Those performances against a solid common opponent is indicative as to where these two fighters skill levels are in comparison to each other.  The Lucian Bute vs Carl Froch Odds Over/Under have the Over at 9.5 Rounds at -310 Boxing Odds

The Oddsmakers like the OVER but Bute’s never famous chin and both fighters power make the Under attractive at +255 for at least a flier bet. Bute’s aforementioned ordinary chin makes a heavy wager on him risky but he is “in-form” and confident heading into this bout away from home. Expect Bute’s better athleticism and speed to be the difference in a close fight where the crowd will be behind the local favorite Carl Froch.  The Lucian Bute vs Carl Froch Odds have Froch at +180 moneyline.
