Manny Pacquiao is still the clear favorite against Jeff Horn, even though odds have narrowed.
Manny Pacquiao is the clear favorite for tomorrow’s fight in Australia against Jeff Horn, though the odds have come down significantly from their opening.
Pacquiao, 38, opened at a -1000 line, with Horn, 29, at +650. The lines have narrowed since then, with most major sportsbooks now listing Pacquiao (59-6-2, 38 KO) between -550 and -650, and Horn (16-0-1, 11 KO) at +400 to +450.
None of this means anything more than the sportsbooks are trying to make the most money they can, of course, but it’s a thing to talk about. In all reality, Pacquiao being -1000 to start was entirely reasonable.
In the co-feature, Jerwin Ancajas (26-1-1, 17 KO) is the favorite over Teiru Kinoshita (25-1-1, 8 KO), also expected. Ancajas, 25, is defending the IBF super flyweight title, and his odds have actually widened, opening at -1667 and now coming in anywhere between -2000 and -3200, with Kinoshita between +900 and +1600.
