November is going to be a stellar month for boxing betting options that include numerous title fights and big names like Bernard Hopkins, Wladimir Klitschko, and Manny Pacquiao.
On November 8 Bernard Hopkins will look to add to his title belt collection when he fights WBO Lightweight champion Sergey Kovalev. Hopkins will also put his IBF and WBA Light Heavyweight titles on the line in a fight that oddmakers have closely handicapped.
Hopkins is currently a +215 underdog at 5Dimes while the Kovalev option comes with a -255 boxing odds price. The ageless Hopkins is currently on a three-fight win streak, but Kovalev is an undefeated champion in his prime. Action thus far at 5Dimes has favored Kovalev, driving the payday on Hopkins up from the initial +187 offering.
On November 15 Wladimir Klitschko puts his collection of world Heavyweight titles on the line against the undefeated Bulgarian IBF International champion Kubrat Pulev. This matchup offers boxing betting fans the chance to get action on a Klitschko brother without having to put the entire bankroll on the line.
Currently only a -600 favorite, Klitschko will be facing a tough test for the first time in a long time, but his reach and power should once again be enough to warrant the risk. If you like the upset for some unknown reason, the payday on Pulev is currently handicapped at +450.
On November 22 Manny Pacquiao returns to the ring to defend his WBO Welterweight title for the second time this year. He will face the current undefeated WBO Light Welterweight champion Chris Algieri, and as expected Pacquiao is handicapped as a heavy favorite.
Current boxing odds at 5Dimes have Pacquiao as the -1000 favorite while action on Algieri comes with a +650 payday. Inexperience and a larger opponent with big power should prove to be too much for Algieri.
