boxing wagerMayweather vs Marquez odds could set up to be the fight of the year. Online betting cappers are excited to see Mayweather Jr. come out of retirement, and he's picked a stiff test to start. Juan Manuel Marquez is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the game. The bad news for him is that Mayweather Jr. isn’t one of the best - when he’s on his game, he’s the best.

Mayweather vs Marquez odds: Mayweather -425

  • Mayweather has size advantage over Marquez
  • Mayweather a tough target to hit, as evidenced by his 39-0 record
  • Marquez doesn’t present anything that Mayweather hasn’t seen before

The Mayweather vs Marquez odds list Mayweather as a huge favorite. It’s a high price to pay for Mayweather, but he’s the public face in this fight, which means he’s going to attract a lot of betting attention. When you take a closer look at the fight and leave the Mayweather vs Marquez odds aside, you see that the line is high and that it might be closer than the betting line indicates.

Manuel Marquez is an excellent fighter and boxing betting fans know he may be one of the toughest opponents that Mayweather’s faced. On top of that, he is facing him in his first fight after retirement, which means that if there’s any rust, Manuel Marquez will knock it off. The main difference in this fight will be size, though, which is something that Manuel Marquez will have a tough time overcoming. Mayweather is known for his speed, but in this fight, he has the benefit of being the bigger man.

Although Mayweather’s newest nickname is “Money” Mayweather, his older nickname is “Pretty Boy” because he never gets hit with anything significant. That will be the same case in this fight. Mayweather is more than just fast - he’s smart and he’s agile. He knows the ring angles as good as anyone. Manuel Marquez’ game plan is to take it to Mayweather’s body, but realistically speaking, that’s been everyone’s game plan against the Money May. But after 39 fights, Mayweather is still the Pretty Boy because he’s still 39-0.

The reason why Mayweather vs Marquez odds are so high in favor of Floyd Mayweather in the sportsbook is because he isn’t going to face something he hasn’t seen before. There is the added element of rust from his retirement, of course, but many fighters have shown that that’s not a big deal. Manuel Marquez may be one of the best fighters that Mayweather Jr. has seen, but he isn’t an opponent that brings anything new to the table. He’s also past his prime at the age of 36. Based on that, it should be another win for Mayweather as this sets up an inevitable battle against Manny Pacquiao.
