Floyd Mayweather Jr The Best Bet Says Bookie

Favorites in boxing do extremely well and Floyd Mayweather Jr. certainly matches that criteria in his fight against Juan Manuel Marquez Saturday night at the MGM Hotel in Vegas.

Mayweather Jr. was now priced at -450 at BetUS.com.  Marquez, on the other hand, would pay 3/1 odds.

But BetUS.com analysts advise that there is so much "uncertainty" in Marquez's training camp that the steep price tag on Mayweather might be worth the reward - a $100 profit for every $450 bet or a $10 profit for every $45 bet.

A recent report has suggested that the morale and confidence level in the Marquez camp are at an all-time low. Trainer Nacho Beristain has made several questionable statements about Marquez's physical condition, and chances in the upcoming fight.

"Marquez was in desperate need of a certain type of sparring partner, there was nobody we liked here," Berestain told the New York Examiner in July.

Apparently, the mood has worsened, leading some reporters to liken the training camp to a convict waiting for his execution.

Marquez, who is already an underdog at BetUS (+325 to -450), isn't looking like a wise sports betting selection at the moment. The craft Mexican comes in with the size disadvantage already, not to mention having to concede on issues such as ring size to Mayweather Promotions, who will take the lead for this event.

The uncertainty in the camp also makes bettors think even harder about the other issues Marquez already has, such as his vulnerability to cuts. Mayweather is such an accurate puncher that he is able to both open up and target gashes to perfection, which is a dangerous combo for a bleeder like Marquez. In addition, the Mexican warrior will have to beef up in order to take part in the fight, possibly negating the tremendous speed he carried at lower weight classes.
