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

On Saturday night, Vasyl Lomachenko will try to bring another domain in another weight division to his achievements as he challenges World Boxing Association lightweight champion Jorge Linares. The crowd at Madison Square Garden will be in for a tactical treat as both Lomachenko and Linares deliver a wealth of knowledge and higher boxing IQ to the table with this matchup.

As always, my goal is to provide readers with value when betting on the fights. According to the betting odds at YouWager Vasyl Lomachenko is a large favorite at -1600 (bet $1,600 to win $100). While Lomachenko well might win the struggle, he’s clearly facing the best opponent of his career thus far in Linares. In +750, there is a great deal of value on banks on the fact that Jorge Linares can pull off the upset. I’m always reiterating, it is all about line value. If the value is not there or there isn’t a true prospect of success for the odds underdog, then you need to simply stay away or look at prop bets which provide that value.

In this case, I have a lot to say concerning Linares and believe there’s value that makes the payoff worth the risk.

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


1.) Jorge Linares to win +750 (wager $100 to win $750). I have seen this story before. Sometimes there’s a fighter which has another fighter’s number. So far, Lomachenko hasn’t been really tested because 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 rather than since Salido didn’t want it. In Lomachenko’s most recent fight against Guillermo Rigondeaux, his opponent was the smaller man that just could not compete in the weight. There is a point when a fighter keeps moving up in weight and eventually finds himself in a struggle. Linares is an experienced and battle-tested fighter who has for the most part quietly gone about his company 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 will be easy work for Lomachenko. The last time Linares was stopped was six years ago. The taller fighter with the longer attain and solid boxing abilities could frustrate Lomachenko as the battle goes. If Linares can restrain the distance and induce Lomachenko to move from his comfort zone, Linares can locate himself the recipient of a 12-round decision.

2.) Jorge Linares to win by decision +1100 (wager $100 to win $1,100). This is simple. I’m choosing Linares to win the battle and although he’s 27 knockouts beneath his belt, even if he defeats Lomachenko, it’ll be by decision. It doesn’t require a rocket scientist to emotionally feel comfy with gambling on the favorite. It is just natural to be drawn in that way. In cases like this, as someone that’s involved in the game as I am, after recently watching Linares fight Gesta and Campbell in addition to fighting Crolla twice, I really don’t view Linares being intimidated by Lomachenko. Only two years separate the men in era (Linares 32, Lomachenko, 30) and this really is the cozy weight class for the winner Linares.
