The Saul Alvarez vs Shane Mosley Odds have Alvarez at -900 on the boxing betting moneyline at BOVADA SPORTSBOOK and CASINO
Boxing Picks Analysis: Shane Mosley is a spoiler but we like the younger and stronger champion to win a competitive fight against the aging legend from Cali. Mosley is still fast twitch fighter with a strong work ethic but Alvarez is a supremely focused and confident puncher with strong promotional interest. Mosley likes to mix things up and against a well-conditioned killer like Alvarez, the Sugar man could find himself on the losing end of some brutal toe-to-toe exchanges. The Saul Alvarez vs Shane Mosley Odds Total is expected to be at 10.5 Rounds with the OVER at -200.
The fact is that Mosley off of his (ahem) special juice, is not an elite fighter. Alvarez is improving with each fight and his riveting combinations will be too much for Mosley’s diminished reflexes. The promoters want to keep the fresh faced Alvarez in the hunt for either a Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather bout so close rounds are also likely to go the kid’s way. Play Alvarez on the boxing betting moneyline for a healthy 1 UNIT wager.
