Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez have never been ones to make betting easy. This rivalry has been one of the most difficult to bet on due to how close the first three fights have been, but the latest odds are out for those adventurous enough to try to pick a winner.

The two will face off once again in Las Vegas, trying to finish one of the great rivalries in the sport. There has been no clear-cut winner just yet, and I don't expect there to be one this time.

If you're feeling particularly lucky and willing to drop some change on this fight, let's take a look at your latest odds.



One of the premier betting sites in the U.S., Bovada has weighed in on the Pacquiao-Marquez fight and has given a slight edge to Pacquiao, pegging him as the -280 favorite.

Marquez is currently the +220 boxing odds underdog, according to the oddsmakers at Bovada, but your best bet may not be picking one boxer over the other.

The over/under is set at 10.5 rounds, which is easily the best bet Bovada offers. These two have gone the distance in each of the first three fights and are almost guaranteed to do so again. With Pacquiao's ability to come out strong and Marquez's strong chin, these two will go back and forth with the final decision coming down to the judges once again.


Gambler's Palace

Our second betting venue is very similar to the first. Marquez is slated as a +225 underdog, but this time Pac-Man is only at +265.

The best bet for those who use Gambler's Palace is the 10.5-round over/under once again.

It looks like Gambler's Palace is also expecting a long, grueling fight that will come down to the wire.


Vegas Odds

The gambling capital of the world seems to be favoring Pac-Man over Dinamita just like the other sites, but in a different fashion.

Vegas itself sees Pacquiao as a huge favorite, giving him the -330 favorite role while placing Marquez at +260.

Obviously, Marquez has yet to win a fight with Pacquiao, but considering how close the first three were, I was expecting closer odds.

My favorite bet is still the over/under, but if you're taking a chance on Dinamita, you should go right for Vegas.
