Jorge Linares v Anthony Crolla Betting Tips
The bookies make Linares the 1/2 favourite with Betfred, while Crolla comes in to this bout as a 2/1 shot with 888Sport. It seems like this is going to be a long contest, with Betfair pricing this match to go the distance at 4/5. If that’s the case, then fans should certainly get their money’s worth in this rematch.
It’s hard to hold anything against Crolla, given that Million Dolla fought back to this point from life-threatening injuries. He was hit by a concrete slab as he tried to stop a burglar in his neighbour’s house; leaving him with a fractured skull and a broken ankle. Somehow he’s back in the ring, and pushing to be crowned the best lightweight in world boxing.
It’s a fantastic comeback story, and it’s just another example of Crolla’s resilience. That’s an impressive quality to boast, which makes you question Linares’ decision to not just welcome a rematch, but to hold it in Million Dolla’s home town again. Has the Golden Boy set himself up for a fall?
While Crolla has fought back from much worse than a defeat, he has an impressive history when it comes to rematches. He came back from a defeat to Derry Matthews in 2012 to draw in their next fight. Million Dolla drew with Darleys Pérez in their first WBA title fight before winning their rematch four months later. He may have lost that WBA title to Linares, but clearly he has a history of fighting back.
He’s been watching the first fight on loop, using that to fire him up for this clash. He’s expected to come out and take everything to the champion, disturbing the rhythm by brawling with the Golden Boy. That seems like a smart gameplan, and we’re backing the challenger to take the win at 2/1 with 888Sport.
However, given that this bout is priced below evens to go the distance, it might be worth backing Crolla to shade this on points. He’s priced at 4/1 to win this bout by decision, which would be an amazing comeback from the Mancunian.
