BOXING betting, particularly on a night like Saturday, when Tony Bellew and David Haye go to war for a second time is a way to add extra spice to your evening’s entertainment. Perhaps you don’t like the rematch, perhaps – like me – you’re a little sick and tired of all the posturing and promises being made by two fighters who are more than likely at the wrong end of their career. However, it’s hard to deny there’s money to be made.
Not so long ago, bookmakers, perhaps preoccupied with football and racing, made some howlers in regards to the odds they put on certain boxing matches, meaning educated fans often cashed in by taking advantage of some clumsy forecasts. These days, though, it’s hard to spot a ‘bargain’ within the boxing betting markets, meaning you need to outlay a significant wedge in order to get something approaching a worthwhile return.
