Betting odds: Golovkin vs. Lemieux
“GGG” is back for another Big Drama show on October 17th at Madison Square Garden, but what kind of drama does Gennady Golovkin’s fight against David Lemieux promise? Is there any chance that Lemieux emerges as a victor, or is he just another name on GGG’s resume? Let’s take a look to see what the odds makers have to say on the matter.
Golovkin vs. Lemieux Betting Lines
- Gennady Golovkin: -2,000
- David Lemieux: +900
GGG has been installed as an overwhelming favorite against Lemieux. And certainly, with his crazy run through the division, and Lemieux’s own past, in which he was stopped in his first defeat, play into that. But to put Golovkin at -2,000 and Lemieux at +900 seems like a bit of a stretch.
Any way you slice it, Lemieux is still one of the best fighters in the world at middleweight. Golovkin’s a rising pound for pound stud, but we still haven’t seem him tested. If Lemieux can land something big early, then that could change the entire dynamic.
I’m not saying that you should bet against Golovkin, which probably isn’t smart. But why bet on him at -2,000, with no upside. Taking a flier on Lemieux at +900, with his power punching, ain’t a bad value, even if it’s not a smart pick.
