Andre Ward vs Alexander Brand Betting Odds and Preview
‘SOG’ returns this weekend ahead of what is expected to be the final fight he takes before his super-fight with light-heavyweight kingpin Sergey Kovalev (who beat Chilemba recently) in November. Before that, here’s what you need to know on the Andre Ward vs Alexander Brand betting odds ahead of this weekend.
Despite the main coverage existing on the Olympics this weekend in the boxing world, there is a fight in the pro ranks involving one of the sport’s leading pugilists in Andre Ward (29-0-15KO).
He takes on experienced Colombian Alexander Brand (25-1-19KO) in a fight that is expected to be a relatively straight forward fight for Ward, in what is being seen by many as a final warm up for the ‘Krusher’.
If you are looking at taking a bet on the fight this weekend, here’s how things are shaping up. The outright market for Ward to win sees very little value such is his heavy favourite tag in this one:
If you are looking for a bit more value however on this weekend’s proceedings, you’d best be served by looking into the win by method of victory market:
Ward could very well be looking at this fight as a tune up and Brand is no mug, so I’d probably be leaning towards Ward by points in this one.
At 11/10 with one bookmaker above, it’s not a bad price.
Keep an eye out closer to the fight however and don’t be surprised if you see Ward as high as 2 or 3/1 to win on points elsewhere.
