Brook Golovkin : Boxing Expert Pick 9/10

Brook Golovkin : Boxing Expert Pick 9/10

Brook Golovkin

Finally we see someone step up to take the challenge in Brook Golovkin as the pound for pound best boxer in the one has been lacking quality opponents.  Great to see everyone back here at HRWager.  Gennady Golovkin is a force of nature who is not only undefeated but has knocked out nearly everyone who steps in the ring.  Applause to Kell Brook for not only putting his unblemished 36-0 mark to the test but by going up in weight classes to do so.  Fight is in the UK so it is set to start at 5PM EST on Saturday, September 10th.  Where can profit be plucked from this top flight fight this weekend?

Brook Golovkin : “Special K” Odds

Kell Brook is the underdog for this fight and frankly should be.  Even fighting on his home turf and featuring a strong chin, his market price for this one is hovering near the +450 region.  He has had a little more of the market shift as he opened closer to +480.  One of the more interesting opinions on this fight comes from the man dodging GGG the most.  Canelo Alvarez has gone on record that Brook is a sacrifice.  No way he can jump up two weight classes and get it done against the worlds best.  So what is the best approach for Brook to score the win here?

References to Leonard – Hagler

People that are betting Brook to win are looking at Sugar Ray Leonard’s win in 1987 as the path to profit.  He jumped two weight classes and defeated the best boxer in that region in Marvin Hagler.  However even this fight was somewhat tainted as it was a very controversial split decision. SO sharp boxing minds went to the man himself to get his opinion.  Leonard is leaning towards GGG.  He has no horse in this so it is interesting that he is going against the trend of leaping two weight classes.  A little self serving however as it makes Leonard’s accomplishment look so much more special.

HBO is proud to put on such a stellar fight.  Brook might be able to hang for seven to eight rounds here.  So hard for the slippery boxer to fight a near perfect fight.  If he gets tagged then its lights out.  GGG catches him late and wins by Knockout.  Good fortune to you in this fight and remember it is 5:30PM on Saturday so get those bets in early here at HRWager.


BYU Utah : Holy War Free Pick 9/10

BYU Utah : Holy War Free Pick 9/10

BYU Utah

One of the fiercest rivalry games seen has BYU Utah meeting one another in what has been dubbed the Holy War.  We wish to extend to all our family and friends here at HRWager a happy start to a long and profitable weekend.  Here the Utes have won the last five in the series.  What must be really a thorn to BYU is the way Utah blasted them 35-0 in the first quart of the Las Vegas Bowl last year.  How do the Cougars ensure that such a dismal start does not occur again at 7:30 PM on September 10th?

BYU Utah : Utes Giving Nothing Away

An odd game for trial and error was seen in the Utes’ 24-0 win against Southern Utah. Pass protection was there as they threw for over 270 yards and two touchdowns for new QB Troy Williams.  However, it was the lack of a run push by the offensive line that is the concern.  They could not create holes to run through.  Even worse is that the running backs seemed almost timid when the few chances to bolt into the blue presented themselves.  Without this staple of the Utes attack, the market has decided to react against them in this game.


Market Move on BYU

Benchmark opener of -4 1/2 has been nibbled down to -3 1/2 for the home Utes.  The sharps have taken heart to BYU’s lack of turnovers vs Arizona as a reason to embrace this team.  In their five game losing streak to Utah, the Cougars are a shocking -13 in turnover margin.  Without the penchant to self destruct, the tandem of Taysom Hill and Jamaal Williams will be too much to overcome. Their dynamics certainly trump anything the Utah offense can offer.  The pressure will be on the Utes defense all night to keep them in this one.

Home field advantage for Utah is usually pretty strong to factor in.  Not against BYU.  Cougars avoid the turnovers and win the battle here then the game is there for the taking.  Avoid taking the + 3 1/2 and go for the BYU +145 ML win instead.  Make sure to watch and wager the Holy War as it will be one of the better games in college football this weekend.  Good fortune and we will see you next time here at HRWager.
