Manny Pacquiao vs Adrien Broner Betting Odds and Pick | Odds Shark

Fresh off an impressive seventh-round knockout over Lucas Matthysse at April, Manny”Pac-Man” Pacquiao is back in action on January 19 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, Protecting his WBA welterweight title taking on Adrien”The Problem” Broner.

Broner, 29, is coming from a crazy majority draw decision contrary to Jessie Vargas in April and can be a +250 underdog in this fight with Pacquiao, 40, coming back as a -325 favorite.

Odds Analysis
This is the third straight fight in which Broner has been an underdog, previously closing at +150 vs Jessie Vargas and +900 from Mikey Garcia. Meanwhile, Pacquiao was a favored in each of the past four fights, falling only to Jeff Horn in July of 2017 during that interval. Pac-Man’s knockout over Lucas Matthysse last July was his first T/KO victory because he finished Miguel Cotto in 2009 at the very same arena he’s combating Broner in.

For Broner, this is actually the third largest return to welterweight, a class where each of his three livelihood losses have come. It’s not surprising to watch Pacquiao as the favored at -300 as he’s a future Hall of Famer and is coming off an impressive knockout. Broner had a good deal of hype behind him a couple of years ago but has been plagued with legal problems and has failed to live up to expectations.

Pacquiao making a case to get a rematch vs Mayweather?
Pacquiao (-325) is an eight-division world winner and for a while he was ranked as the top pound-for-pound boxer in the world, with enormous heart and thunderous hitting power. The 40-year-old has won three of the past four fights, including his previous knockout over Lucas Matthysse in July, his first playoff success since November 2009 against Miguel Cotto.

The southpaw was pumped out by Juan Manuel Marquez in 2012 for its first back-to-back losing slide of his livelihood after falling to Timothy Bradley six months before. But since the knockout loss, Pac-Man is 6-2 with his only losses coming against Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Jeff Horn (in controversial fashion), both by unanimous decision. He also outstruck Horn 182-92 while landing 32 percentage of his cries to only 15 percent by Horn — that is boxing judges for you.

Broner Has to Be concentrated to beat Pacquiao
Broner (+250) has all of the makings of an elite fighter but his career has been marred by out-of-competition antics who have gotten him legal troubles. Most recently, the 29-year-old was booked on a misdemeanor sexual battery bill from February 2018. The Problem struggles a defensive style, somewhat emulating Floyd Mayweather Jr., also was even drawing some comparisons throughout his rise through the ranks, for example his split-decision victory over Paulie Malignaggi in 2013. The Ohio native also has had problems with his attention, it seems, appearing very pedestrian against Mikey Garcia at 2017, but he looked much better in his majority draw Jessie Vargas in 2018.

Against Vargas, Broner employed a second-half battle strategy, losing the first six rounds but winning the last six. He was outstruck 203-194 but gained 38 percent of his punches to Vargas’ 24 percent. The Problem does have power in his hands, like his counterpart, as he was able to knock Shawn Porter down into their bout in 2015, a struggle that Porter won through unanimous decision. The knockdown was Broner’s only bright spot of the bout.
