Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week (October 16th, 2023)

Catterall vs. Linares – M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool, England (DAZN)

  • When: Saturday, October 21st, 2023. 2:00pm ET

Peter McGrail vs. Fran Mendoza

Although Fran Mendoza is 17-0, he’s a massive underdog to beat Peter McGrail. One of the reasons is because Mendoza has just 7 stoppage victories from his 17 bouts. Another reason is because Mendoza has fought primarily in Spain where he resides.

Peter McGrail is 7-0 with 5 knockout wins. McGrail is a Liverpool born and bred boxer. So the crowd will be squarely behind him. McGrail won his last via unanimous decision but in his previous 5 bouts, he ended his opponents’ nights before the final bell. Under is the play.

Boxing Betting Pick: Fran Mendoza Under 8.5 +107

Kahlil Majid vs. Tom Farrell

Underdog Tom Farrell is one of those 30-plus warriors who never backs down from a fight. Farrell is 21-7. He doesn’t have much power, having won just 5 of his bouts via stoppage. But Farrell has a decent chin because he’s lost just 2 of his fights before the final round.

Kahlil Majid is undefeated with an 11-0 record. Majid has just 3 wins via knockout or technical knockout, which could give Farrell a chance. Also, the dog is easily the best opponent Majid has faced. Take a swing on the underdog to get it done.

Boxing Betting Pick: Tom Farrell +460

Jorge Linares vs. Jack Catterall

Saturday’s headline matchup features the well-regarded Jack Catterall versus tough Jorge Linares. Now 38, Linares used to be one of the more feared fighters in the super lightweight division.

Nowadays, Jorge will take any fight because he likes to box and he gets paid to do so. Going back to 2021, Linares is on a 3-match losing streak. Jorge shouldn’t beat Jack Catterall, who is 27-1 and has just a single loss on his record, a bout versus Josh Taylor that happened last year. Catterall wins. However, Linares should go the distance. Over the total or backing Catterall to win via decision are the best bets.

Boxing Betting Pick: Jack Catterall -1000

Rocha vs. Santillan – Forum, Inglewood, CA (DAZN)

  • When: Saturday, October 21st, 2023. 8:00pm ET

John Ramirez vs. Ronal Batista

Ramirez versus Batista should be a great bout. Underdog Ronal Batista is 15-3 with 9 stoppage wins. Batista lost his last via eleventh round TKO versus Julio Cesar Martinez.

Ramirez is undefeated at 12-0 with 9 KO or TKO wins. The -526 chalk won a split-decision versus Fernando Diaz in his last. Before beating Diaz, Ramirez won a unanimous decision against Luis Villa Padilla.

Batista has a lot of power. The fact Ramirez has won his last couple via decision should give Batista some confidence. Give Ronal a shot.

Boxing Betting Pick: Ronal Batista +360

Alexis Rocha vs. Giovanni Santillan

The fighter with a loss on his record is the chalk. Alexis Rocha is 23-1. But Rocha’s loss came back in 2020. Since then, Alexis has won 7 straight. 5 of the 7 wins came via straight up knockout.

Santillan is 31-0 with 16 stoppage wins. For sure, the chalk can take this. But the odds suggest Giovanni has no chance. Santillan is a cagey fighter with terrific defense. Backing the dog makes sense.

Boxing Betting Pick: Giovanni Santillan +400
