It is of course a bank holiday weekend in the UK this weekend and as such they are bound to be plenty of betting opportunities available to you if you are planning on watching any number of sporting events scheduled for Saturday, Sunday or Monday.
One of the long awaited sporting events this Sunday morning is of course the Saul Alvarez v Daniel Jacobs boxing match, and many punters are going to be including that match in their betting activities this weekend, and a high percentage of them are hoping that the favourite will win that match and have him included in doubles, trebles and acca bets too.
The favourite to win this match is the highly talented Saul Alvarez but being the favourite, his odds have dropped noticeably recently on the futures betting markets for this match, and as such I doubt you are going to find odds much higher than 1/4 on him winning it.
As for where the value lays in this match, well if you are of the mindset that Daniel Jacobs is going to show a marked improvement in his form then win odds of 16/5 are very easy to obtain online, and as for the chances of this match going the way do a draw, well anything is possible but that is an unlikely outcome and one of which odds of 18/1 are generally available right now.
When Will the Match End?
It is not only on the above match betting market that many punters have been placing their bets and wagers, for there is loads of value waiting to be secured on the round groupings betting markets on which you are simply tasked with trying to predict in just which rounds the match will end.
As for the odds on each round grouping, well rounds 1-3 is a 9/1 chance, and you can take odds of 13/2 the match will finish in rounds 4-6, or you may fancy the chances of it ending in rounds 7-9 for which you will be rewarded with odds of 6/1 and as for whether it will end in the final three rounds those being rounds 10-12 the odds on that betting opportunity are 9/1, if you feel the match will go the entire distance the odds are sadly not that appealing at 1/2!
How About a Bet on the Method of Victory?
As for a couple of other standout betting opportunities on this upcoming boxing match, well I do like the look of the odds available on the Saul Alvarez to win on Points bet for that is a bet on which you should easily be able to get odds of 5/6 offered to you by no end of betting sites.
There is of course also the possibility that Saul Alvarez could end up winning by either a KO/TKO/DQ or a Technical Decision and if you do think that is going to be the case then most bookies are offering that bet as a 12/5 shot.
