Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week (May 6th, 2024)

McCaskill vs. Price – Utilita Arena, Cardiff, Wales (NBC Sports)

  • When: Saturday, May 11th, 2024. 3:00pm ET

Rhys Edwards vs. Thomas Patrick Ward

Edwards versus Ward should be a terrific fight. Edwards boasts an undefeated 15-0 record. Ward is 34-1-1.

Neither fighter has much power. Ward shows just 5 knockout or technical knockout wins in his 34 victories. Edwards has just 4 wins in his 15 victories. This will be a boxing match that, unfortunately for Ward, goes to the man with the better footwork.

Boxing Betting Pick: Rhys Edwards -195

Jessica McCaskill vs. Lauren Price // Ring Magazine, WBA, IBO World Female Welterweight Title

McCaskill has much more experience than Price. The +300 underdog in this boasts a 12-3-1 record with 5 knockout wins. But McCaskill is a 39-year-old facing a boxer that’s 10 years younger.

Not only is Price younger, but the chalk is 6-0 with a knockout win. McCaskill will give it her all. She projects to slow down in the later rounds. Price takes over late and cruises to a win.

Boxing Betting Pick: Lauren Price -500

Lomachenko vs. Kambosos – RAC Arena, Perth, Western Australia (ESPN)

  • When: Saturday, May 11th, 2024. 11:00pm ET

Andrew Moloney vs. Pedro Guevara // Interim WBC World Super Flyweight Title

Pedro Guevara has a nice record. The underdog in this bout is 41-4-1 with 22 stoppage victories. Guevara bounced back from a decision loss to Carlos Cuadras a couple of matches ago to win his last via 10-rund unanimous decision.

Andrew Moloney is 26-3 with 16 stoppage wins. Moloney bounced back from a knockout loss to Junta Nakatani to beat Judy Flores in his last. Moloney should win, but Guevara has skills. Taking a shot on the dog makes sense.

Boxing Betting Pick: Pedro Guevara +180

Vasyl Lomachenko vs. George Kambosos Jr. // IBF World Lightweight Title

Kambosos Jr is one of the toughest fighters in any weight class. The 21-2 fighter has a single motor, and that’s to push forward no matter the cost.

Pushing forward against Loma comes with a massive cost. Lomachenko wins every angle. That’s the best way to describe it. His footwork is some of the best in the history of boxing. Vasyl makes Kambosos Jr. look silly by side-stepping and then blasting the hometown hero with quick combinations. This is a fight that Loma can win before the final bell.

Boxing Betting Pick: Vasyl Lomachenko -700
