Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week (April 29th, 2024)

Canelo vs. Munguia – T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, NV (PPV)

  • When: Saturday, May 4th, 2024. 8:00pm ET

Eimantas Stanionis vs. Gabriel Maestre // WBA Regular Welterweight Title

Gabriel Maestre has almost zero shot of taking this. The 37-year-old from Venezuela has a 6-0-1 record. The reason he’s gone this far is due to beating Devon Alexander and Travon Marshall in massive upsets last year.

Eimantas Stanionis is a step-up in class. Stanionis is 14-0 with 9 stoppage wins. The -1400 favorite takes this. Look for a knockout victory. So check out the KO and TKO props before backing Eimantas at -1400.

Boxing Betting Pick: Eimantas Stanionis -1400

Brandon Figueroa vs. Jessie Magdaleno // Interim WBC Featherweight Title

Figueroa versus Magdaleno should be a war. The underdog in this has a fantastic 29-2 record with 18 stoppage wins. Magdaleno heads to the ring after a loss to Raymond Ford in the last, but the defeat came via unanimous decision.

Figueroa is 24-1-1. The lone loss came versus Stephen Fulton in 2021. Since then, Figueroa has beaten Carlos Castro via sixth round technical knockout and decisioned Mark Magsayo in a 12-tround title fight. Figueroa looks tough to beat. So here’s another where we must get creative to boost the payout.

Boxing Betting Pick: Brandon Figueroa -1400

Mario Barrios vs. Fabian Maidana // Interim WBC World Welterweight Title

Based on records, Fabian Maidana has a shot. Maidana has recorded 22 wins to just 2 losses. Maidana has scored 16 knockout or technical knockout wins from the 22 victories.

But records in boxing don’t tell the whole story. Mario Barrios is one of the top fighters in the division. Barrios’ only losses in 30 bouts were to Gervonta Davis and Keith Thurman. Maidana is not close to the level of a Thurman or Davis. Mario wins for sure. Think of a prop, under the total or a knockout, because the odds should be much better than -1100.

Boxing Betting Pick: Mario Barrios -1100

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez vs. Jaime Munguia // Undisputed Super Middleweight Title

Alvarez does everything well, which is why after losing to Dmitry Bivol, few fighters, maybe zero, can beat Bivol, Canelo bested Gennadiy Golovkin, John Ryder, and Jermell Charlo, three fantastic boxers.

Nobody can claim Alvarez is ducking a potential monster. Jaime Munguia is 43-0 with 34 stoppage wins. Munguia can beat you with his feet, he won a decision over Sergiy Derevyanchenko a couple of bouts ago, or his power, Jaime knocked out John Ryder in his last.

This won’t be an easy fight for Canelo. Munguia is much younger at 27 and warrants a serious chance. The odds make the challenger an overlay.

Boxing Betting Pick: Jaime Munguia +350
