Boxing Scorecards Point Spreads
Boxing Scorecards Point Spreads:
This week I decided to try something new with Boxing. Too often a fighter is favored by such a big moneyline that players often don't want to lay the chalk. When looking at the NFL, if Texas is playing the N.E. Patriots, one would be hard pressed to take the underdog Texans with the moneyline. However a +20 with Texas would be more appetizing. You can lose the game , but cover the Point Spread. Same holds true here. You can bet a live underdog, lose the fight, and still cover the point spread. Takes away from the 'bad beat' hometown decsions that have plagued boxing in the past. In same respect, you can lay the point spread on the favorite and avoid those high moneylines.
Here's how it works.
*The point spread is determined by the difference in the combined total of all 3 judges scorecards for each fighter. Bouts must complete the total scheduled rounds listed.
Example: The point Spread on Fighter A is -18. Fighter A wins bout by scores of 120-108,
116-114,117-111. Fighter A total 353 minus Fighter B total 333. The score would be 20. Therefore
Fighter A -18 would win the wager.
*A bout that does not complete the listed scheduled rounds is declared 'No Action' and wagers are refunded.
*If point spread and difference tie, wagers are declared a 'Push' and wagers are refunded.
