Top Boxing Betting Picks for the Week – November 18th Edition

Saturday, Nov. 23

Callum Smith vs John Ryder

  • WBA Super Middleweight Title – 12 Rounds
  • Where: Liverpool, England
  • TV: DAZN

26-0 with 19 knockouts, Callum Smith should handle John Ryder on Nov. 23. Although Smith should win, that doesn’t mean he will win. Ryder has a 28-4 record. He hasn’t lost since 2017, though. Because Ryder has won 4 straight via TKO or KO, he’s worth backing at the expected underdog odds.

Boxing Betting Pick: John Ryder

Xu Can vs Manny Robles III

  • WBA Featherweight Title – 12 Rounds
  • Where: Indio, CA
  • TV: DAZN

Xu Can has excellent boxing skills. He keeps his hands high, has a fantastic chin, and pops his opponents as they move towards him. That won’t work against Manny Robles III, though. The undefeated Robles can fight any required style. He won’t go straight towards Xu Can. Instead, he’ll approach at an angle. Robles wins this before the final round.

Boxing Betting Pick: Manny Robles III

Andrew Cancio vs Renee Alvarado

  • WBA Junior Lightweight Title – 12 Rounds

Although Renee Alvarado has won 7 straight to take his record to 31-8, he’s in deep. Andrew Cancio has won 4 straight. His last loss happened against Joseph Diaz back in 2016. The champ won’t let Alvarado wrest away his belt.

Boxing Betting Pick: Andrew Cancio

Brandon Figueroa vs Julio Ceja

  • WBA Junior Featherweight Title – 12 Rounds
  • Where: Las Vegas, NV
  • TV: Fox PPV

Figueroa-Ceja kicks off 1-of-3 championship bouts in Vegas on Saturday. Undefeated Figueroa is 5’ 9” with a 72” reach. Ceja gives up close to 10-inches in reach. He gives up 3-inches in height. Although it looks bad for Ceja, he’s fought the best of the best in the division. Give him a shot here.

Boxing Betting Pick: Julio Ceja

Leo Santa Cruz vs Miguel Flores

  • WBA Junior Lightweight Title – 12 Rounds

Underappreciated Leo Santa Cruz looks to defend his title against Miguel Flores. Santa Cruz has fought Carl Frampton twice, beating him once. Not only that, but he beat Abner Mares twice. Flores is a good fighter. He faces one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world on Saturday, though. Back Leo.

Boxing Betting Pick: Leo Santa Cruz

Deontay Wilder vs Luis Ortiz

  • WBC Heavyweight Title – 12 Rounds

What can Luis Ortiz do on Nov. 23 to change the outcome of the first fight? The Bronze Bomber has a reach and height advantage over “King Kong” Ortiz. The 40-year-old Cuban must find a way to get inside Wilder’s arms. Unfortunately, you can’t always reach your goals in boxing. Wilder will use his jab and stay patient just like he did in the first fight.

Boxing Betting Pick: Deontay Wilder
