Pacquiao vs. Bradley Free Pick
LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) – Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley collide on Saturday night in the boxing ring. Here is our free pick to consider for this fight.
This fight will take place from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and will air live on PPV. It is a rematch from a fight that was held back on June 9, 2012, in which Bradley won a very controversial decision.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Pacquiao is the favorite to win this bout, as he has odds of -230 to prevail, while Bradley has a money line of +180 to win.
BOXING FREE PICK: This fight is tough to call, but I like the favorite to avenge the previous loss. I think Pacquiao may be a worse fighter now than he was in 2012, while Bradley may be better. Despite that, this is a statement fight for Pacquiao, who can avenge the controversial loss to Bradley. Pacquiao didn’t lose the first fight in most people’s eyes, so I would expect him to come out with a little more fire and aggression. Bradley is coming into the fight knowing his first win is tainted and he may very well question his ability to win. This may be Pacquiao’s last chance for a marquee win, so I think he brings out one of his best showings.
