In what seems to be the sure bet to the majority of fans and analysts worldwide, Manny Pacquiao winning via decision over Timothy Bradley is an outcome that is more than possible in the welterweight showdown.
"Pacman" has won by decision in the last four fights he has been in, and another decision win could be on it's way on Saturday night.
Pacquiao has a knack for winning close matches. Juan Manuel Marquez has suffered two close losses to "Pacman," showing it is no easy task to win via decision against one of the best pound-for-pound fighters of all-time.
The chances of "Pacman" winning will rely on how Bradley tries to fight Pacquiao. If Bradley pushes the action forward, he will find it tougher to beat Pacquiao than if he opts for a more defensive style.
This seemingly pro-Pacquiao treatment from the judges could end up again giving another close fight to Pacquiao. The odds for Pacquiao to win by decision, according to lasvegassportsbetting.com, are -450, netting bettors $100 for every $450 they bet.
