GGG vs Canelo Free Betting Pick + How To Bet Online

The Mayweather vs McGregor fight may have been the biggest money fight of the year in boxing, but Golovkin vs Canelo is without a doubt the biggest fight from a competition standpoint.  Boxing fans have been asking for this fight for years and we will finally be treated to this massive match between two fighters who are in their prime.

Below I break down the fight and give you my winner pick.  I’m using odds from and at the bottom of the page I’ll provide a 3 step guide to betting on GGG vs Canelo online if you’re new to sports betting on the internet.

GGG vs Canelo – To Win

First, here are the odds for the fight winner from

  • Gennady Golovkin 1.61
  • Saul Alvarez 2.30

Neither fighter looked overly great in their last fights, with Canelo easily beating Chavez but not getting the KO, and GGG pulling out the win over Jacobs, but settling for a decision for the first time ever fighting 12 rounders.  That said, both guys were likely playing it safe in order to get the job done and get this super fight set in stone, so I’m not taking anything away from either.

What I see in this fight is a young Canelo Alvarez who has only lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in his entire career.  He has faced far tougher competition in his career than GGG, even though he is the younger fighter at only 27 years old.  Canelo has been fighting the best of the best for the past five years, while GGG, even though he is much older at 36 years old has only really been fighting the elite for 3 years.

That said, Golovkin continued to knock guys out once he jumped up in competition and is without a doubt the more dangerous fighter out of these two.

That said, I believe Canelo is the more technical of the two and if he can avoid the big power punches from GGG, like I expect him to be able to, I think he will be able to win this fight on the judges scorecards.

This is as close to a toss up as it gets in boxing, so I’m happy to take the plus money on Canelo and hope he fights a smart fight for all 12 rounds.
