‘The Problem’ makes his first appearance in the squared circle of 2017 this Saturday. Ahead of the fight, lets take a quick look at the Adrien Broner vs Adrian Granados odds.
This welterweight fight between the two Adrian’s was initially meant to be scheduled at a catchweight of 142lbs.
However, Broner relatively close to the bout asked for it to be moved to the full 147lbs limit.
Prompting concerns about his weight and conditioning.
I don’t expect either of the two to be a factor though.
As he knows 2017 is the year where he has to really knuckle down if he wants to get back to where he once was.
After a torrid 2016 outside the ring.
Right, lets take a look at the latest Adrien Broner vs Adrian Granados odds for either guy to win by any means:

As you can see, Broner is fancied as the favorite by the bookmakers but they are not completely ruling out Granados.
If by Friday’s weigh-in Broner does not look in good condition and does in fact struggle to make the 147lbs limit at the first time of trying, check back with your bookmakers on the Saturday.
As a Granados upset might offer some decent value then.
Broner is not exactly a big welterweight either.
He’s had problems (no pun intended on his nickname) with strong 147 pounders in the past (Marcos Maidana).
Granados is a big welterweight. Tough too.
A guy who’s never been stopped as a pro.
Therefore I’m not entirely sure Broner will have enough to close the show inside the distance.
But if I were looking at a small flutter on the fight this weekend, or as part of a double, treble or parlay, a Broner points win would be what I’d lean towards.
Expect to get nice odds on that closer to the time of the fight.
