Premier Boxing Champions (PBC), spearheaded by promoter Al Haymon, is on the brink of forging a new partnership with Amazon Prime for broadcasting rights. PBC coming to Amazon Prime will be huge for boxing, to join a platform with over 160 million subscribers is a win for Al Haymon and boxing fans in 2024.
PBC Amazon Prime
The first boxing bout to kick off the PBC-Amazon Prime deal is set to be boxing start Gervonta Davis taking on Isaac Cruz in a rematch this January.
PBC was in a crucial position to secure this deal, especially with Showtime boxing concluding its run. As numerous major sports have shifted to the subscription model, PBC had to adapt to maintain momentum.
Otherwise, there was a risk that Haymon’s fighters might switch to Top Rank for ESPN competitions or consider joining Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing for bouts on DAZN.
Showtime Boxing Era Replaced by Amazon Prime Boxing
This move comes in the wake of Paramount’s decision to phase out the Showtime Sports brand by the end of 2023, a platform that has been synonymous with boxing broadcasts for over three decades.
The potential Amazon Prime deal marks a significant shift towards streaming platforms in the sports broadcasting domain, reflecting the changing preferences of viewers who are increasingly favoring online streaming services over traditional cable TV.
Amazon Prime, distinguished by its live sports streaming capabilities exemplified through its coverage of Thursday Night Football, appears to be a strategic choice for PBC.
The deal represents a promising opportunity for PBC to expand its audience reach significantly beyond what was possible with Showtime.
This transition to streaming platforms like Amazon Prime is indicative of the broader trends in the sports broadcasting industry, where traditional cable networks are gradually being overshadowed by the growing appeal and convenience of streaming services.
Odds for UFC Austin are in favor of Arman Tsarukyan -265 against Beneil Dariush +225.
Can Dariush get back into title contention after coming off a tough loss to Oliveira?
See the best bets and props for wagering on Tsarukyan vs. Dariush at UFC Austin.
The race for the UFC lightweight championship could see a major shift following UFC Fight Night on December 2nd. The event, set in Austin, is headlined by a pivotal clash between Arman Tsarukyan and Beneil Dariush.
Tsarukyan enters the fight ranked 8th in the division, while Dariush holds the 4th spot. Let’s delve into the odds and predictions for this highly anticipated bout to see who might inch closer to the title.
Tsarukyan vs Dariush Odds
Tsarukyan remains a solid betting favorute among UFC fans at -265. Giving the Armenian-Russian fighter a 76.2% win probability over Beneil Dariush. Tsarukyan is a rising contender and despite two UFC losses, his talent has remained as potential future champ at 155.
For Dariush, this will be his first fight back after his only loss since 2018, in his last outing against Charles Oliveira. Dariush offers real betting value as an underdog here, you can wager $100 to net $255. Expect to see Dariush’s experience on play here and a chance to make his claim for championship status.
This fight could very well be a chess match, with each fighter looking to capitalize on their strengths. Dariush’s striking and resilience vs. Tsarukyan’s grappling and stamina make for a compelling fight at UFC Austin.
When is comes to striking Dariush lands an impressive 3.79 Strikes per Minute (SLpM) with a 49% accuracy. His striking absorption rate of 2.63 per minute, coupled with a 58% defense, points to a well-rounded striking game.
A crucial element in this matchup is Dariush’s formidable 80% takedown defense, a vital asset in countering Tsarukyan’s potent grappling skills.
Tsarukyan edges out Dariush slightly in SLpM with 3.82 but has a slightly lower striking accuracy at 48%. His striking defense stands at 54%, and he absorbs fewer strikes at 1.91 per minute.
When it comes to takedowns, he lands 3.43 takedowns average per 15 minutes and a 36% takedown accuracy. His takedown defense, though, is slightly lower at 75%.
Tsarukyan’s orthodox stance and younger age might give him an edge in agility. His excellent takedown ability and stamina are key assets that he could use to wear down Dariush over time.
Dariush’s edge in striking accuracy and defense might play a pivotal role in stand-up exchanges. His proficiency in defending takedowns could turn out to be the decisive factor in this bout. While Tsarukyan boasts a higher takedown average and a more efficient rate of absorbing strikes.
Tsarukyan could look to exploit his grappling advantage, especially given Dariush’s lower takedown accuracy. Conversely, Dariush’s experience and balanced skill set mean he’s not to be underestimated, particularly if he can keep the fight standing and leverage his striking skills.
Expect a tactical battle with both fighters having their moments. Tsarukyan might edge out with his grappling and stamina, but Dariush’s striking and experience can’t be overlooked. I expect this to be competitive and Dariush could be a good pick with many people sleeping on his talent once again.
Anthony Joshua opens as a -360 betting favorite against Otto Wallin at +320.
When Wallin faced Fury, he presented significant challenges. Now, as the underdog, can Wallin emerge victorious against AJ?
We preview the best bets for AJ vs Wallin including a fight prediction below.
Concluding a momentous year for boxing, a huge boxing event is set to top off the year. One of the double-headers features Anthony Joshua facing off against Otto Wallin, while Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker engage in a parallel battle.
Joshua’s fighting style and demeanour have undergone a noticeable transformation in recent years, prompting questions about whether he still maintains an elite level. Will AJ silence the doubters yet again? Below, I provide my betting pick and highlight the best ways to wager on the AJ vs. Wallin matchup for potential financial gains.
AJ vs Wallin Betting Odds
The ex-world heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua opens as a -360 favorite, indicating a high 78.2% implied probability of winning against Otto Wallin.
Wallin, a Swedish southpaw, has experienced only one professional defeat, a decision loss to Fury in 2019. Betting on Wallin in this matchup could yield a $320 profit on a $100 wager. Meanwhile, the chances of a draw is listed at +105. Check out these sportsbook apps for boxing for the best signs to bet with.
Betting Props for Joshua vs Wallin
Stay tuned to Betting Insider Journal, for the best prop bets for AJ vs Wallin once they’re released from betting sites.
Anthony Joshua vs Otto Wallin Prediction
Joshua’s momentum is gradually picking up once more, positioning him just one fight away from securing a highly anticipated fan-favorite bout against Deontay Wilder. AJ has emerged victorious in his last two fights, securing a knockout against Robert Helenius and claiming a unanimous decision win over Jermaine Franklin.
“I can’t predict the future, but I know what I want to do,” Joshua said at a press conference. “I believe I’m going to be a three-time heavyweight champion and the first step is to put a demolition job on Otto Wallin.”
Wallin has fought six times since his only loss in 2019, with just one KO win and five victories by points. If Wallin is going to win he might have to put the pressure on Joshua early, who has shown weaknesses in his chin since getting finished by Andy Ruiz back in 2019.
Joshua, known for his powerful punches and athletic physique, brings a mix of speed and strength to the ring. He’s got an impressive record, but his recent performances have shown some vulnerability, especially in his ability to adapt under pressure. His loss to Oleksandr Usyk highlighted this, as he struggled with Usyk’s movement and tactical approach.
Wallin, on the other hand, may not have Joshua’s explosive power, but he’s got exceptional endurance and a knack for staying competitive in longer fights. His performance against Tyson Fury was a testament to his toughness and ability to withstand heavy hits. He’s never been knocked out, which speaks volumes about his resilience.
In their upcoming clash, I see Joshua’s power being a critical factor in the early rounds. He’ll likely try to establish dominance quickly, using his reach and strength to his advantage.
Those of you betting on AJ, should not sleep on Wallin’s endurance and ability to absorb punishment might turn the fight into a war of attrition. If Joshua doesn’t secure an early knockout, the fight could extend into the later rounds.
I predict the fight might end in the later rounds, possibly around the 10th or 11th round. Joshua, while the favorite, will need to be cautious of Wallin’s ability to endure and counterattack.
If Wallin manages to withstand Joshua’s initial onslaught and drag the fight into the later rounds, it could become a test of stamina and strategy. That all being said, I still lean towards Joshua securing a win, possibly through a late knockout or by decision.
Betting Pick: Anthony Joshua
Joshua vs Wallin Rematch Clause
Eddie Hearn revealed that the upcoming fight between Anthony Joshua and Otto Wallin, scheduled for December 23rd at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, includes a rematch clause.
This decision is somewhat unexpected as the 33-year-old heavyweight who is seen as less formidable than Joshua’s recent opponents, Robert Helenius and Jermaine Franklin.
Wallin’s perceived lack of punching power and his status as a fringe contender have led some fans to view this matchup as a step down for Joshua.
“It’s a one-fight deal, but there are ongoing discussions. You see a lot of people saying, ‘Why isn’t AJ fighting [Deontay] Wilder on December 23rd?’ We got approached for a fight which was Otto Wallin. It was six weeks until the fight. He accepted the fight,” said Eddie Hearn.

The co-main is to feature Jermall Charlo vs Jose Benavidez Jr.
Arrangements have been set in motion for the Benavidez siblings to feature in individual matches as part of an eagerly anticipated Showtime Pay-Per-View event slated for November 25 in the vibrant city of San Antonio, Texas. Let’s get right into the latest betting odds for Benavidez vs Andrade.
Benavidez vs Andrade Odds
The latest boxing odds have David Benavidez as a solid -320 betting favorite on FanDuel – that’s an 81.4% implied win probability for the WBC super middleweight champ.
Meanwhile “Boo Boo” will also put his 32-0 undefeated streak on the line. Andrade has odds of +335, with this being the first time he has been the underdog in his pro-boxing career.
Here are the latest prop bets and picks for Andrade vs Benavidez!
Method of Victory
Benavidez Wins by TKO/KO or DQ: This is at +168 to +130, suggesting a probability of around 37% to 43%, a relatively likely outcome considering Benavidez’s power.
Andrade Wins by TKO/KO or DQ: With odds like +880 to +1000, this is seen as highly unlikely (around 9% to 10% probability).
Winning by Decision: Benavidez’s odds are around +140 to +144, and Andrade’s are +470 to +500. This indicates a higher likelihood of Benavidez winning by decision compared to Andrade.
Over/Under 10½ Rounds: The odds are -164 to -160 for over and +128 to +125 for under, suggesting a slightly higher likelihood of the fight lasting more than 10½ rounds. Fight Goes/Doesn’t Go to Decision: Odds at -130 to -138 for going to decision versus +104 to +105 for not going, indicating a marginally higher expectation of the fight reaching a decision.
Round-Specific Bets: The odds for each fighter winning in specific early rounds (like 1 to 3) are extremely high (e.g., +4900 for Benavidez, +10000 for Andrade), reflecting the low probability of such an early finish.
Most Likely Outcome: Based on the odds, the most likely outcome seems to be a Benavidez victory, possibly by decision or late-round TKO/KO.
Least Likely Outcome: An early round victory for Andrade, especially a TKO/KO in rounds 1 to 3, is seen as highly improbable.
David Benavidez vs Demetrius Andrade Prediction
In his most recent fight on March 25th, David Benavidez (27-0, 23KOs) stepped into the spotlight as a PPV headliner, engaging in a heated twelve-round battle against Caleb Plant, a fellow former super middleweight titlist.
Hailing from Phoenix and now residing in Washington state, the 26-year-old defended his interim WBC super middleweight title in that bout, a title that will once again be up for grabs in his upcoming appearance. Notably, Benavidez stands as one of the three mandatory challengers vying for a shot at the undisputed super middleweight championship.
Andrade (32-0, 19KOs) is set to face his first former titlist in a remarkable 15-year career, a noteworthy fact considering his past as a two-division titleholder.
Hailing from Providence, this skilled southpaw, who represented the U.S. in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, boasts a flawless record of 9-0 in title fights across the junior middleweight and middleweight divisions. It’s worth noting, however, that none of these victories came against a boxer who had previously held a major title of their own.
Andrade is coming off a UD win over journeyman Demond Nicholson. 14 months prior to that Andrade stormed Irish boxer Jason Quigley to win by TKO in the 2nd round. Andrade’s inactivity at times and resume of boxers he’s fought, have given him the wildcard and underdog status entering this bout.
Andrade’s biggest test to date from my perspective was the Liam Willams fight, both fighters showed true grit and at moments the fight was going in Willams’s favor. That being said, Andrade proved he does belong among the best of the division.
I expect to see Andrade’s calculated wildness really test the wits of Benevarze. “Boo Boo” has one of the most awkward fighting styles and he’ll need to show something different against Benavidez’s walk-you-down approach. Andrade should look to use his jab efficiently and keep moving to his best ability here.
Benavidez as always will bring pressure to this fight. One of his trademark moves is catching his opponents while they’re on the move, this is something he should be able to use effectively against Andrade.
Benavidez has never had to deal with the wild types of shots Andrade throws. What will be a real test, is if Andrade connects with a right that Benavidez doesn’t see coming to see how he reacts. I can see both fighters willing to trade in the center, but once Andrade gets a taste of Benavidez’s power this could change the tempo of the fight.
Currently, the prevailing sentiment is that the most compelling option for both men is to go head-to-head in the ring. The victor in this showdown stands to stake a formidable claim as the leading contender to challenge Canelo Alvarez in the near future for the coveted undisputed super middleweight championship.
Supporters of Benavidez’s prospects against Andrade hold firm in their belief that Benavidez’s sheer size, formidable power, and relentless punch output will prove overwhelming for Andrade. Notably, Andrade embarked on his professional journey in the junior middleweight division and only recently transitioned to the super middleweight category.
Conversely, those favoring Andrade’s chances are convinced that his exceptional skills, formidable power, and tactical ring acumen set him apart from any of Benavidez’s previous adversaries.
Benavidez’s stamina will keep the pressure going for 12-rounds, and being the naturally bigger man will work to his advantage.
Pick: David Benavidez
The trend continues for 2023 with the best fighting the best in boxing, Benavidez and Andrade are clearly keen to earn
Ideally, the winner here takes on Canelo next. Which could set up a huge Cinco de Mayo fight between Canelo and Benevadez, now that’s the fight to make!
Leave a comment below on your prediction for this fight!
The reaction to Jermall vs. Benavidez Jr. has been mixed due to the evident mismatch in size and skill. Jermall clearly outshines Jose Jr. in terms of size, strength, speed, and talent. Can Charlo finish Benavidez in style? Let’s see what the latest odds say for this upcoming fight.
Charlo vs Benavidez Odds
Jose Benavidez Jr
Jermall Charlo opens as a -850 betting favorite, giving him an 89.4% implied win probability over the former WBA interim light welterweight champion Jose Benavidez Jr. For Benavidez Jr, odds of +510 mean a $100 bet could net $510 profit on the chance of an upset here.
Once the props are live for Charlo vs Benevidez Jr we will review them here!
Below are the latest prop bets for Jermall Charlo and Jose Benavidez Jr. These bets offer intriguing insights into the perceived likelihood of various outcomes. Let’s break down some key points:
Over/Under Rounds: The over/under for 8½ rounds is set at -240 for over and +180 for under. This suggests a slightly higher probability that the fight will last longer than 8½ rounds.
Decision vs. KO/TKO/DQ: The odds for the fight going to a decision are -190, while the odds for not going to a decision are +146. This implies a slightly higher chance of the fight being decided by the judges rather than by a knockout, technical knockout, or disqualification.
Method of Victory: Charlo is favored to win by TKO/KO or DQ at +194, indicating a reasonable chance of a finish. For Benavidez Jr, the odds for a TKO/KO or DQ victory are much higher at +1100 to +1400, reflecting the lower probability of this outcome.
Round-Specific Outcomes: The odds for either fighter winning in the early rounds (1 to 4) are quite high, especially for Benavidez Jr, indicating that a victory in these rounds is considered quite unlikely. As the rounds progress, the odds slightly decrease, but they still remain high, suggesting low expectations for a finish in any specific round.
Most Likely Outcomes: Based on these odds, the most likely outcomes appear to be Charlo winning, possibly by decision or late-round stoppage. The fight lasting more than 8½ rounds also seems probable.
Least Likely Outcomes: A Benavidez Jr victory, particularly by early knockout, is deemed highly unlikely, as reflected by the high odds for these scenarios.
Grouped Round Bets: The grouped round bets (e.g., Charlo wins in rounds 1-2, 3-4, etc.) offer lower odds compared to specific round bets, indicating a slightly higher probability but still remaining as less likely outcomes.
Jermall Charlo vs Jose Benavidez Jr Odds & Prediction
It’s somewhat perplexing that Charlo, who is expected to move up to the 168-lb weight class, is facing Benavidez Jr., who seems undersized for the 154-lb division and lacks a notable track record at this weight. Jose Jr. primarily fought as a welterweight until 2021, distinguishing him from his more prominent brother, David.
During Charlo’s hiatus from the sport, there was persistent speculation about his imminent return. Fans and pundits eagerly anticipated potential matchups against boxing luminaries such as David Benavidez, Canelo Alvarez, Caleb Plant, and Demetrius Andrade.
In a surprising twist, in November 2022, Charlo threw down the gauntlet by publicly challenging light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol. While none of these tantalizing bouts have materialized as of yet, the prevailing sentiment suggests that Charlo is gearing up for a return to the ring, with a keen interest in taking on elite fighters spanning the weight classes from 160 to 175 lbs.
Often overlooked, Jose Benavidez Jr. boasts an impressive amateur career, securing eleven national championships and earning the distinction of becoming the youngest Golden Gloves champion in history. In the professional arena, Benavidez’s only blemishes on his record came in encounters with formidable opponents, Terence Crawford and Danny Garcia.
While many perceive the bout with Benavidez as a preparatory match to ready Charlo for more significant challenges in the middleweight and super middleweight divisions, the question of Charlo’s performance upon his return lingers. When he steps into the ring against Benavidez on November 25th, it will mark precisely two years, five months, and six days since Charlo last showcased his professional boxing skills.
In a recent development, Charlo has made a significant move to Pensacola, Florida, where he is under the expert tutelage of the boxing legend, Roy Jones Jr. Videos capturing their intense training sessions have started surfacing online.
Although the specifics of the personal challenges that led to Charlo’s two-year hiatus from the sport remain shrouded in mystery, Charlo himself has sent a clear signal of his intent to reenter the boxing arena and continue his promising career.
Since 2018 we’ve seen a decline in Benavidez Jr’s performances as he stepped up to take on world beaters such as Terrance Crawford and Danny Garcia, both fights he lost. Meanwhile, Charlo’s undefeated streak of 32-0 is expected to be maintained according to the online sportsbooks.
Even after the two-and-a-half-year layoff, this could be the turning point for the less active Charlo brother to get back into fighting bigger names again. Expect to see Charlo score a UD win over Benavidez which could set up a fight against Caleb Plant or Andrade in 2024.
50/50 Fight According to Benavidez Sr.
Jose Benavidez Sr. has weighed in on the upcoming showdown between his son, Jose Jr., and Jermall Charlo, slated for November 25th, describing it as a “50-50” bout.
The stakes are high, with Benavidez Sr. suggesting that if his son secures victory over Jermall, he could potentially become the next challenger for Canelo Alvarez in May. However, it’s widely believed that Jermall will be Canelo’s next opponent if he can emerge victorious in his comeback fight against Jose Jr.
Benavidez Sr. points to Jermall’s recent struggles, including mental issues, personal challenges like divorce, a period of inactivity spanning three years, and even struggles with alcohol. He believes that these factors could make Jermall vulnerable against the smaller but determined Benavidez (28-2-1, 19 KOs) on November 25th.
The implications are substantial, as a loss to Benavidez Jr. could be a significant setback for Jermall (32-0, 22 KOs), who stands on the brink of a lucrative showdown with Canelo if he emerges victorious next month.
It’s worth noting that the Charlo-Benavidez Jr. clash, if it materializes, will be a prominent fixture on the undercard of the David Benavidez vs. Demetrius Andrade fight, set to be aired on Showtime PPV.

O 55.5 (−130)
U 55.5 (+100)
Pick 1. Patrick Mahomes Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-215)
Mahomes has been consistently hitting the end zone, averaging 1.9 passing touchdowns per game this season. The Eagles’ defense has struggled against the pass, making this an attractive bet.
The odds imply a 68.25% chance of Mahomes throwing over 1.5 touchdowns, a probability that aligns with his recent performances and the Eagles’ defensive vulnerabilities.
Pick 2: Jalen Hurts to Score an Anytime Touchdown (+130)
Despite a knee injury, Hurts remains a formidable force in the run game, accounting for 58.3% of the Eagles’ rushing touchdowns this season.
The Chiefs have had difficulty containing mobile quarterbacks, further increasing the likelihood of Hurts finding the end zone. The odds imply a 43.5% probability, which seems conservative given Hurts’ track record this season.
Pick 3: Rashee Rice Over 43.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
Rice has emerged as the Chiefs’ top wide receiver, averaging 47 receiving yards per game since Week 3. The Eagles have been particularly vulnerable to slot receivers, making this an intriguing prop. The odds suggest a 53.5% chance of Rice surpassing 43.5 receiving yards, which appears feasible given both his and the Eagles’ recent form.
These prop bets not only offer enticing odds but also align well with the current form and stats of the players and teams involved. Whether you’re an avid fan or a strategic bettor, these bets provide a fascinating angle to Monday night’s showdown.
This weekends UFC Fight Night goes down on November 18, 2023, at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada. The card is set to start at 5 p.m. (ET) and will be broadcast on ESPN+. Headlined by two middleweight fighters Brendan Allen vs. Paul Craig, here are some best bets, picks and picks based on my analysis.
Brendan Allen vs. Paul Craig Odds & Props
Prop Bet Type
Fight to End by Submission
Allen to Win by KO/TKO
Over/Under 1.5 Rounds
Over/Under 1.5 Rounds
Allen is the massive favorite at -440, and the matchup seems to heavily favor him. He’s on a five-fight winning streak and has a more well-rounded skill set compared to Craig. The suggested bet is on Allen to win by ground and pound KO/TKO at +125.
“All In” Allen is one a five fight winning streak and has a balanced approach in both striking and grappling gives him an edge in this fight, making him the more favorable contender.
There’s another outcome of that this fight ends by submission. Both fighters have shown a willingness to engage on the ground with other grapplers, and a significant number of their victories have come by submission. The pick here is for the fight to end by submission at +140 odds.
Fight to End by Submission: With both Allen and Craig being strong in submissions, this bet seems a smart choice. The odds for the fight to end by submission are at +140, which seems quite favorable given their histories.
Allen by KO/TKO: Allen’s striking has shown significant improvement, making a bet on him winning by KO/TKO appealing. This outcome is offered at +125, offering good value considering Allen’s recent form.
Over/Under 1.5 Rounds: Given their early finish records, the over/under for 1.5 rounds is an interesting prop bet. The odds for both over and under 1.5 rounds are -110, reflecting the unpredictability of this outcome. I’m inclined to bet on the over, anticipating a longer fight due to the fighters’ experience and resilience.
Chase Hooper vs. Jordan Leavitt Odds
In the lightweight bout between Chase Hooper and Jordan Leavitt, the numbers slightly support Hooper. However, considering Hooper is a -235 favorite and the value play, the suggestion is to side with Leavitt at +180.
Michael Morales vs. Jake Matthews Odds
Morales, with a significant height and reach advantage, is the favorite against Jake Matthews. Despite Matthews’ inconsistency, Morales’s takedown defense and power are expected to be the difference. The recommended bet is on Morales by decision at +230.
This week, I’m excited to share my best bets and predictions for NFL Week 11. I’ve compiled a list of the best bets that I believe hold great value.
In Week 11 of the NFL, the Philadelphia Eagles continued to excel, highlighting their strong NFC presence. The Miami Dolphins focused on strengthening their AFC playoff position with a dynamic offense.
The Los Angeles Chargers aimed to bolster their playoff hopes in a key matchup, while the Cleveland Browns engaged in a crucial AFC North rivalry, showcasing their competitive edge.
NFL Picks for Week 11: Eagles and Browns Take the Lead
One of my top picks for this week includes the Philadelphia Eagles at +3. Having watched their games closely this season, I’m impressed with their resilience and tactical gameplay. The Eagles have consistently demonstrated a strong offense, and I believe they have the edge to cover the spread against their opponents.
Similarly, the Cleveland Browns at -1.5 are another solid pick. Their recent performances, especially in tight situations, have shown that they can outperform expectations. My analysis of their game strategies and player form suggests that they are well-positioned to come out on top.
Chargers and Bears Show Promise
For my secondary picks for week 11, I’m leaning towards the Los Angeles Chargers at -3. The Chargers have been a bit of a rollercoaster this season, but their potential to outscore opponents, particularly in crucial moments, cannot be overlooked.
On the other hand, the Chicago Bears at +9 caught my eye. Despite some setbacks, they’ve shown remarkable grit. Their defense, in particular, has been a standout, and I believe they have the capability to keep the game closer than the spread suggests.
Week 11 Teasers
An interesting bet for NFL week 11 is the Group Teaser involving the Miami Dolphins at -6, Minnesota Vikings at +8.5, and Jacksonville Jaguars at -1. This 6-point teaser is a strategic blend of teams that I’ve observed to have a consistent performance curve, making it a compelling bet.
High Stakes -Dolphins and Commanders
I’m also placing my bets on the Miami Dolphins to win by more than 10 points against the Las Vegas Raiders. The Dolphins have been a powerhouse this season, and their ability to dominate games against weaker teams is noteworthy.
Furthermore, the Washington Commanders at -10 against the New York Giants is a strong pick. The Commanders have shown they can move the ball effectively and I expect them to capitalize on the Giants’ current roster challenges.
Underdog Bets for Week 11: Bears, Cardinals, and Eagles
Lastly, I suggest considering underdog bets like the Bears at +9.5, Arizona Cardinals at +5, and again, the Eagles at +3. These teams have demonstrated the potential to upset the odds, making them valuable picks for this week.

Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk Prediction
Fury possesses a unique talent, characterized by his ability to deliver precision jabs and execute crisp shots while boxing from the back foot. Remarkably agile for a man standing at 6-foot-9 and weighing 270 pounds, his exceptional footwork was on full display during his masterful outboxing of Klitschko in 2015.
In recent years, Fury has undergone a significant stylistic transformation. His current approach leans towards a relentless mauling of his opponents, leveraging his substantial size and weight advantage in the clinch to systematically wear down and dismantle his adversaries.
This strategic shift was prominently on display in his second and third encounters with Deontay Wilder, where he administered punishing beatdowns to arguably the heavyweight division’s most formidable puncher.
Why try to outbox Usyk, a masterful boxer, when Fury can leverage a potential 50-pound weight advantage on fight night? He can apply pressure, leaning on Usyk to drain his energy.
Usyk will rely on angles, precise footwork, and well-timed counters to keep Fury at bay and minimize risk. His key is to control the center of the ring, avoiding getting pinned against the ropes. Usyk gained valuable experience in this regard during his 24 rounds against Anthony Joshua, a heavyweight with significant power, although not quite on Fury’s boxing level.
Usyk, also a southpaw, presents a challenge for Fury, as this stance has troubled him previously. One only needs to recall the Otto Wallin fight, during which Fury encountered difficulties before ultimately securing a decision victory.
Fury has the slight advantage here as the bigger and more rangy boxer. Usyk could arguably be the more technical but we’ve seen many different styles come from Fury’s camp over the years. That tells us the “Gypsy King” is adaptable as it gets for whatever Usyk throws his way.
It was nip and tuck with Usyk getting to Joshua at times. Now the Ukrainian did manage to cut off the ring and get on the inside of Joshua, but we all know Fury can fight on the inside too.
In terms of betting on this fight already, I can see this playing out much more smoothly than Fury’s last few bouts. Fans could expect this bout to be a game of high-level chess, with Fury coming out on top by way of decision.
Will Fury sail off into the sunset if he defeats Usyk? It certainly would set up a perfect exit for the “Gypsy King”. That being said, he might want to challenge Joshua a fellow countryman, that would give the fans the real fight they’ve always wanted to see in heavyweight boxing.
What’s at Stake Between Fury and Usyk?
It’s all about legacy and the coveted title of the greatest heavyweight of our time. For the first time, all four heavyweight belts will be unified since Mike Tyson’s era.
Fury and Usyk are already poised for first-ballot Hall of Fame entries, but what unfolds in the ring will be instrumental in solidifying their positions among the pantheon of all-time heavyweight greats.
Fury can use the Ngannou bout to shed ring rust and prep for Usyk, the smaller, swifter heavyweight aiming to outmaneuver him.
A win against Usyk would cement Fury’s status as the era’s top heavyweight, considering his 2015 dethroning of Wladimir Klitschko.
For Usyk, triumph would mirror Evander Holyfield’s cruiserweight-to-heavyweight journey. Holyfield famously upset Mike Tyson in 1996, preceding the infamous “Bite Fight” rematch. A Usyk victory strengthens his claim to the ESPN pound-for-pound throne held by Terence Crawford.
