How To Bet Vasyl Lomachenko Vs. Jorge Linares: Ultimate Bettor’s Guide And Latest Betting Odds

On Saturday night, Vasyl Lomachenko will attempt to add another domain in another weight branch to his achievements as he struggles World Boxing Association lightweight winner Jorge Linares. The crowd at Madison Square Garden will soon have a strategic deal as both Lomachenko and Linares deliver a wealth of knowledge and high boxing IQ to the table for this matchup.

As always, my objective is to provide viewers with worth when betting on the fights. As stated by the betting odds at YouWager Vasyl Lomachenko is a large favorite at -1600 (bet $1,600 to win $100). While Lomachenko very well might win the fight, he is clearly facing the best competitor of his professional career thus far in Linares. At +750, there’s a lot of value on banks on the fact that Jorge Linares can pull the upset. I am always reiterating, it’s about line worth. If the value is not there or there is not an actual chance of success for the odds underdog, then you should just stay away or look at prop bets that provide that value.

In cases like this, I’ve a whole lot to say about Linares and believe there is value which makes the reward worth the risk.

With that being said, let us enter the four best bets for Saturday’s world title battle.


1.) Jorge Linares to acquire +750 (wager $100 to win $750). I have seen this story before. Sometimes there’s a fighter which has another fighter’s variety. So far, Lomachenko has not been truly tested since he fought and lost to Orlando Salido four decades and two weight classes past. It should be noted the ship has sailed on that rematch and not since Salido didn’t want it. In Lomachenko’s most recent fight against Guillermo Rigondeaux, his rival was the smaller guy that just could not compete in the burden. There’s a stage when a fighter keeps moving up in weight and eventually finds himself in a fight. Linares is a seasoned and battle-tested fighter who has for the most part quietly gone about his business under the public’s radar. With three times as many fights under his belt and three losses (all by knockout), the uneducated public’s perception is that Linares is going to be easy work for Lomachenko. The previous time Linares was ceased was six years ago. The taller fighter with no longer attain and solid boxing abilities could frustrate Lomachenko as the battle goes. If Linares can control the space and induce Lomachenko to maneuver out of his comfort zone, Linares can locate himself the recipient of a 12-round decision.

2.) Jorge Linares to win by decision +1100 (bet $100 to win $1,100). This is straightforward. I’m choosing Linares to win the battle and although he’s 27 knockouts beneath his belt, even if he defeats Lomachenko, it will be by decision. It does not take a rocket scientist to emotionally feel comfortable with betting on the preferred. It’s only natural to be drawn in that way. In this case, as somebody that’s involved in the sport as I am, after recently watching Linares fight Gesta and Campbell in addition to fighting Crolla twice, I really don’t see Linares being intimidated by Lomachenko. Only two years separate the guys in age (Linares 32, Lomachenko, 30) and this is the cozy weight class for the champion Linares.
