Pacquiao Clear Favorite To Win in May 2

With the Hatton-Pacquiao mega bout looming in the horizon, it’s high time for bettors to know the odds as early as now, with the details straight from casino bookmakers and reputed betting sites.

From any standpoint, Pacquiao is the heavy favorite to win the May 2 fight with a huge disparity. Bookmaker William Hill has Pacquiao leading the odds with an 8/15 mark, while odds for Hatton is valued at 9/5.

In Las Vegas, casino bookmakers and betting agencies has Pacquiao as the -200 favorite. That means a $200 bet on Pacquiao would win $100. On the other hand, the Manchester native is the +160 underdog, which means a $100 wager on Hatton can generate $160 in wins.

Clearly, many see Pacquiao winning the fight with Hatton, but bettors would not yield as much as Hatton’s betting fans should the British wins their 12-round title bout for the Briton’s IBF junior welterweight belt come May 2.
