Canelo Alvarez Vs Daniel Jacobs Betting Odds & Prediction
April 30, 2019
On the back of a second controversial decision success over Gennady Golovkin back in September, followed by a demolition of Rocky Fielding, Mexican superstar middleweight Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez (51-1-12) returns to the ring on Saturday 5 May to fend off a serious challenger in IBF Middleweight Champion Daniel Jacobs (35-2).
The event will take place at the World Famous T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, no better venue to stage one of the biggest fights of 2019.
Canelo Vs Jacobs Betting Odds
The Canelo vs Jacobs betting odds have the Mexican as the clear bookies favourite here, but Jacobs is a very worthy challenger and is a short underdog on the boxing betting lines. Most people believe this is a lot more of a 50:50 encounter than the current available boxing odds suggest.
Canelo Alvarez is the -275 favourite over at Betway Sports to defend his WBA and WBC middleweight belts and strip Daniel Jacobs of his IBF one to further unify the division. This is quite a short price, but you could parlay some fights on the undercard or crossover with other sporting events that weekend.
Canelo and his team are ruthless tacticians who watch and exploit the weaknesses in their opponents as a unit of boxing minds. Canelo is the executioner of course and the 51-1-2 boxer, at just 28-years old still, holds both an age and experience advantage over his dangerous challenger.
Daniel Jacobs has a professional record reading 35-2-0 and is a +260 underdog at the Unibet sportsbook. His latest loss came at the hands of Gennady Golovkin by way of a unanimous decision. GGG was fairly dominant, but Jacobs had several moments of superb boxing in that fight and he has won his last three fights since. Jacobs is a big middleweight, possessing a three and a half inch height advantage and a three inch advantage in the reach department.
However, Canelo Alvarez is becoming accustomed to fighting bigger men now. He is as tough and crafty as they come, a point few would argue regardless of which side of the Canelo or GGG argument you’re on. The Canelo vs Jacobs betting lines are favouring the Mexican to get the job done though and Alvarez can take another step toward true greatness in the sport of boxing.
Canelo Vs Jacobs Betting Tips
In terms of trying to bet on the ‘Method of Victory’ betting lines, this is a really hard fight to call. Both Canelo and Jacobs have countless KO/TKO victories to their name and have the power to end this under the right circumstances. However, both these fighters are at the top of their game and this could be more of a long game.
All three of Jacobs’ recent wins have come via Points Decision so he is learning to be patient and catch the judges eyes on the scorecards, while Canelo could probably go all day long. You can get boxing odds around -110 on Alvarez to win by decision, which looks a solid bet overall if the -275 straight win price is too short for you.

Pick: Canelo Alvarez to win by Decision at -110
Plenty of US boxing fans will be backing their home fighter Jacobs and he will be very popular on the Las Vegas betting lines, in what could prove to be a classic match-up between a typical tough and classy Mexican, versus a sturdy and determined American warrior.
It’s a tough call and you could feel quite silly for underestimating Jacobs at around +260 odds. But Saul Canelo Alvarez could just be a slight cut above over the 12 round bout and looks the sensible betting prediction to make for the main event.
