  • Wladimir Klitschko: -1200
  • Alexander Povetkin: +700

Analysis

Klitschko is the overwhelming favorite in this fight. In fact, since betting has opened up, he has become an even wider favorite than what he started at, extending from 10 or 11 to 1, to 12 to 1.

He hasn't been challenged in what seems like an eternity, and his stretch of dominance is unmatched. Against Povetkin, he's facing one of the best available challengers out there for him. However, Povetkin is badly outsized against Klitschko, and doesn't possess the athleticism or pure skill you'd like to see in an undersized fighter who's trying to take on and take out Klitschko.

Nevertheless, backing a 12 to 1 favorite usually don't make a whole lot of sense. Klitschko is going to have to lose at some point, and getting +700 odds on a guy like Povetkin isn't a bad reach at all. Betting against Wladimir over the past decade hasn't been a wise move, but you get great value for Povetkin here if you think there's even a slim chance of him pulling off the big upset.

As of this time, there was no official over/under line for the fight, either. One will definitely be made available before the bout, however, and you should of course always check out the latest odds before you place your bet, because they'll definitely be changing from now until then.

  1. It’s funny hearing people refer to Povetkin as “undersized”. He’s about 6’3″ and a solid 228lbs. George Foreman was called “Big George” in his prime. He weighed 220lbs. back then. It just adds a little perspective to the nonsensical idea that guys like Frazier and others would beat the Klitschkos. Size isn’t everything. But with big skilled athletic guys it’s a lot. Frazier was a great fighter. But Foreman crushed him. Just too much power, reach and SIZE. I just think very few past HW greats would stand a chance against either Klitschko. You also said Povetkin doesn’t possess “athleticism or skill”. Way off. If you’ve actually watched Povetkin, he’s very athletic, very skilled and coordinated. He’s an undefeated pro. And won an Olympic gold medal. He does deserve to be a 12-1 underdog against Klitschko. But that’s a testament to Klitschko’s greatness. Povetkin would have been a contender in a lot of past eras, possibly a champ. But against Klitschko, he’ll probably look like an outclassed cruiserweight.
