Punters lace-up for the Aussie underdog
29 June 2017
It’s been dubbed one of the biggest fights ever on Australian soil and UBET punters think hometown hero Jeff Horn is a big show to get the job done against the 11 time world Champion Manny Pacquiao at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday.
The Brisbane-based chalkie has been all but written off by most overseas experts but UBET punters are having none of it according to UBET Media Manager Gerard Daffy.
“This week alone, Horn has been backed from $4.50 into $4.15, with the ratio of bets running in his favour 5:1. Aussies are getting right behind our man and every smaller bet is for Horn, and the four and five figure bets are for the favourite”, Daffy said.
“The other interesting trend is that there is good money for either boxer to end the fight early in the ‘method of result’ market”. “Despite the fact that Pacquiao hasn’t knocked anyone out since 2009, he has been $3.00 in to $2.25 in that market, while Horn has been $7.00 in to $6.00”.
UBET is the Official Wagering Partner for the fight, and has opened some promotional markets on the bout that will hopefully see the fight go the scheduled 12 rounds, and culminate in a win for Horn. “UBET customers are loving our ‘Queenslander’ promo which is $15 for Horn to win in to the Maroons to win the third and deciding Origin match” Daffy said.
