Best Boxing Bets For April 2018

Best Boxing Bets For April 2018


April is set to be a great month in boxing with a number of world title fights taking place around the globe. Here is a look at the best bets for the month which will hopefully help you to show a profit from the bouts.

James DeGale v Caleb Traux

Former world champion James DeGale is set to meet American Caleb Traux on April 7 in a rematch for the IBF super-middleweight title. Traux upset his British opponent last year when he picked up a majority decision after 12 rounds in London. Chunky was well beaten on that occasion as he failed to win for the second consecutive occasion. Given Traux is now the champion, this contest will take place in America. Therefore, at $6.0 in the latest boxing betting for the rematch, the title holder is a fantastic price to repeat the result which would be a huge blow to DeGale's career and one which could leave him seriously considering retiring from the sport.

Billy Joe Saunders v Martin Murray

Billy Joe Saunders has held his WBO middleweight belt ever since he defeated Andy Lee in December 2015 in Manchester, England. The unbeaten boxer has defended his title on four occasions since then, with his most impressive win coming recently against David Lemieux in Canada. Saunders out-boxed the big hitter in his own back yard and is very close to a unification contest later this year against either Gennady Golovkin or Canelo Alvarez, who are set to meet again in May. With so much at stake, it's difficult to see Saunders taking his eye off the prize against Murray; therefore, take him to win the fight inside 12 rounds, which is available to be backed at $3.25.

Carl Frampton v Nonito Donaire

Carl Frampton is set to return to action on April 21 as he looks to become a world champion again. The Northern Irishman has picked to take on a tricky opponent here as Donaire has won world titles at four different weights throughout his successful career. Clearly Frampton has age on his side and that is likely to be going to be the big factor here. However, it is not going to be easy for the man from Belfast against his experienced opponent. Unfortunately at $1.52, you are not going to get rich backing it, but Frampton should get the decision following 12 rounds at the SSE Arena.

Terence Crawford v Jeff Horn

Australian Jeff Horn is set to make the second defence of his WBO welterweight title against Terence Crawford when the pair are scheduled to meet on April 14. The Hornet produced the performance of his career when he beat Manny Pacquiao last July. Since then he made no mistake against Gary Corcoran in a comfortable performance in Brisbane. This is going to be very tough for Horn, as not only is Crawford one of the best in the division, he is rated by many as one of the leading pound-for-pound men in boxing at the moment. Expect Horn to put up strong resistance, and the best bet looks to be for Crawford to win on points, which is available in the betting at $3.25.

Enjoy all the action throughout April and good luck if you are having a bet.
