Shields vs Marshall Highlights Saturday Action | Boxing Lines and Betting Picks
- When: Saturday, Sep. 10
Marten Arsumajan -625 vs Bjoern Schicke +335
Underdog Bjoern Schicke is 19-1-1 with 10 knockout wins. Schicke hasn’t lost since 2020 when, yep, Marten Arsumajan forced a referee technical decision.
The dog hopes he can exact revenge over his rival. Marten Arsumajan has 6 wins and a draw since the first bout. Arsumajan should be the chalk. But both these guys are German fighters who have fought mostly in Germany. So Arsumajan isn’t much better than Schicke. Maybe, Schicke has gotten better since the 2020 contest.
Boxing Pick: Bjoern Schicke
Chico Kwasi +170 vs Rostam Ibrahim -256
Dutch fighter Chico Kwasi will enter the ring with a 5-1-1 record. Rostam Ibrahim, the favorite in this, has a 9-0-2 record.
Not only does Ibrahim have a better record, but he has also knocked out 6 of his opponents. Kwasi has knocked out 2 of his opponents. More power and what looks like a better chin, Kwasi lost his bout via knockout, means the chalk takes this.
Boxing Pick: Rostam Ibrahim
Erica Alvarez +721 vs April Hunter -3333 | London – EPN+
5-1 April Hunter, the massive chalk in this match, hasn’t won a single bout via TKO or KO. The loss didn’t happen via knockout, either. So at least April has that going for her.
Erica Alvarez has a sad 3-6 record. Alvarez will fight hard, but she doesn’t have the skills to hang with Hunter. Will April get the first knockout of her career on Saturday? She might. So if you can find a KO prop, it might be worth a look.
Boxing Pick: April Hunter
Alycia Baumgardner +191 vs. Mikaela Mayer -294 | WBO & IBF & WBC Junior Lightweight Titles
Mayer is a fantastic boxer. Mikaela is undefeated with an excellent 17-0 record. The American has knocked out 5 of her opponents.
Mayer is for sure legit and should win this bout. Alycia Baumgardner has a 12-1 record. Baumgardner’s only loss happened back in 2018. Not only that, but it looks like Alycia has more power because she’s knocked out 7 of her opponents. Baumgarnder shouldn’t offer such high odds. Backing the overlay underdog makes sense.
Boxing Pick: Alycia Baumgardner
Savannah Marshall -123 vs Claressa Shields -114 | WBC & IBF & WBA & WBO Middleweight Titles
Claressa Shields opened the slight favorite. But the closer we get to the fight, the more boxing handicappers are siding with Marshall.
Both Marshall and Shields have the same exact 12-0 records. The difference between their records is that Marshall has knocked out 10 of her opponents while Shields has knocked out just 2 of her opponents.
Savannah has more power. Shields might be the better boxer, but she’s not that much better. Marshall gets the win.
Boxing Pick: Savannah Marshall
