CHRIS EUBANK JR is the favourite to beat George Groves, with bet365 placing the challenger to the WBA super-middleweight title at 8/15, with the champion currently priced at 6/4.

Odds are as long as 40-1 on Groves winning in round one or two, while Eubank is at 33 and 28/1 respectively. Furthermore, the odds are significantly shorter for the challenger to win inside schedule at any point.

Are the odds correct? Generally, the bookies are about right, but deeper investigation – particularly when there is money to be made – is worthwhile here.
