Underdogs On Joshua vs Breazeale

If You Bet €1 and Win On All Underdogs On Joshua vs Breazeale Card You’d Win €1 Trillion Plus

What ever happened to the days of 50/50 fights in boxing? We thought we’d do a bit of an experiment on tonight’s big pay per view event in London headlined by Anthony Joshua’s IBF world heavyweight title fight at the 02 and the results were well, rather astounding.

Obviously when combining underdog bets on an accumulator in any sport you are going to get big odds no matter what, but I’ve never seen any as one sided and as gigantically crazy as this weekend’s card.

Granted, it could be argued of all ten bets on offer at the moment with Paddy Power that the George Groves vs Martin Murray fight is 50/50.

You could also say John Wayne Hibbert is in a relatively competitive fight, although he should get the win.

Other than these two bouts though, the remaining 8 fights on offer with Paddy Power on the card appear to be a complete forgone conclusion with the bookmakers.

These odds and winning totals for backing just €1 on winning on all 10 underdog fights on an accumulator (or parlay to our American friends) say a lot:

crazy

And what would these mega odds equate to in a return? This much:

boom

That’s a Paddy Power shutting down and world changing sum of:

€1235292628284.00

Laughing yet? I certainly was when I read it! In other words, that’s:

One trillion, two hundred thirty-five billion, two hundred ninety-two million, six hundred twenty-eight thousand, two hundred eighty-four euros.

I’m not in anyway suggesting this as a bet, just to be clear. Not by a long way.

I simply wanted to illustrate the massive gap in odds on tonight’s card in London which as you can see above, the bookies do not carry any value on odds-wise for at all in the outright betting markets.

The positive thing about the card for me though is the Groves vs Murray fight and the fact that Anthony Joshua is headlining.

But as a punter, I wouldn’t exactly see a whole lot of value tonight with the bookies…

My prediction on the main event:

Joshua inside 3 rounds.
