The Cotto vs. Martinez betting odds show that the champ, Maravilla, is a solid but not huge favorite to win the fight. Certainly, there are major questions he needs to answer, and some very strong reasons why Cotto could pull off the victory.
Make no mistake though, Martinez deserves to be the favorite. He’s bigger, faster, and more skilled and athletic, and he has the experience of being in there, and winning, with huge middleweights such as Kelly Pavlik and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
Still, Cotto looked great in his last outing, and he could be catching Martinez at the right time, after several shaky performances, several rounds of surgeries, and plenty of time on the shelf as the clock continued ticking on his career and his body.
Who you like to win this fight really comes down to how much you think Martinez has left. If Martinez is at his absolute best, or near that level, there’s likely not much that Cotto can do about it. But if Martinez is at 85% of himself and Cotto comes in on a mission, well, that’s a different story.
The odds are definitely going to be moving and swinging in this one, so be sure to check them again before you put your money down. Cotto has a huge fan base and you can expect that money to be coming in.
