Serrano vs Meinke Betting Preview

While fighting for parity among female athletes, Amanda Serrano maintains her dominant position in the featherweight class. The 35-year-old puncher from Puerto Rico is a seven-division champion and one of the sport’s all-time greats; sharp bettors can take a seat this weekend, as her -5000 moneyline odds speak volumes.


Nina Meinke is well-known throughout Europe and has previously won a handful of regional titles. Following her most recent defeat against Mahfoud in 2022, she’s remained active, found success, and landed a mandatory title position.

Boxing Parlay Pick Leg 1: Serrano by KO/TKO (-150)

Even the squarest bettors know Serrano’s -5000 boxing odds aren’t to be messed with this weekend and don’t be surprised if some genius does a victory lap after staking $5000 to win $100.

Every significant advantage you can look for in a fighter is siding with the home nation’s favorite this weekend, including power, experience, speed, and a high-profile championship setting. However, a -5000 ML does nothing for our parlay, and we’re forced to look at the valuable proposition markets our sportsbook offers.

Many believe the 35-year-old is fighting beyond her prime because she hasn’t recorded a knockout victory since 2021. But we must consider that styles make fights, and Meinke’s willingness to trade has cost her in the past (See bout vs. Katie Taylor).

Out-pointing Serrano is off the cards, and Meinke’s camp should be well aware of this. Therefore, don’t be surprised if the German throws caution to the wind and puts herself in dangerous positions. With this likelihood, Serrano can find the kill shot she’s missed in seven straight fights and finally end her KO drought.

In addition, as Taylor is a fight Serrano would love to avenge, we can expect her desire to win this fight inside the distance to be higher than ever, and versus an opponent with a minimal KO-threat in Meinke, the boxing queen or Puerto Rico can let her hands go wild without much kickback to worry about.

 

 

  • Serrano has won 30 of her 49 pro bouts via KO/TKO
  • Meinke was stopped in seven rounds versus Katie Taylor

Jake Paul vs Ryan Bourland Betting Preview

In an effort to earn the respect of his peers and the boxing community, former social media influencer and YouTube star Jake Paul continues to compete against the lower-level opposition in the cruiserweight division. Despite flatlining Andre August last time out, his weekend foe could be the easiest boxer he’s fought to date.


There isn’t much to brag about when discussing Ryan Bourland; he retired from boxing to work on the oil rigs and surprisingly returned to the ring after four years on the sideline. He’s a golden gloves champion, but honestly, this accolade has lost its value in recent years, and similar to the Serrano, the -2500 Las Vegas odds on Paul are speaking volumes to the betting public.

Boxing Parlay Pick Leg 2: Jake Paul by KO/TKO (-800)

It doesn’t take a genius to know that Paul has already won this contest. Not only does he have age, size, power, and confidence on his side, but he’s fighting a guy in Bourland who suffered a knockout defeat to Israel Duffus eight years ago. Why is this relevant? Well, Duffus is currently on a five-fight losing streak and has been knocked out in four of those bouts.

On paper, there are facts Paul can drop to his teenage fans and convince them Bourland is legitimate, but honestly, he isn’t. You won’t find much valuable footage on him, but based on the training clips, slow, sluggish, past it, and old are the words that come to mind.

Paul is no world-class boxer, but he’s undoubtedly taking his position as an athlete seriously, and even with his power alone, minus the other favoring variables, he would have enough to stop the aging Bourland inside of the first few rounds.

Their moneyline isn’t worth our time, and the KO-prop isn’t much greater, but if we combine the two stars of Most Valuable Promotions to win by KO, we’re getting close to plus-money in what could be straightforward stoppages.

 

 

  • Paul has 5 knockouts from 8 career wins
  • Extremely low-level opponents have knocked out Bourland
  • Bourland has fought just once in the last five years
