Johannesburg (South Africa) – This Saturday’s middleweight title showdown has been pegged as a near certainty for champ Garreth ‘Soldierboy’ McLellan to take the win, according to the odds put down by the betting gurus at BetXchange.com.
Punters with faith in the challenger, however, stand to double their money if 20 year old Dricus du Plessis lives up to his self-appointed destiny.
A similar situation plays out in the co-headlining Van Staden vs. Smith bout. The notorious Smith, dropping to welterweight for the first time, has been pegged at 0.6, meaning a win nets you your wager plus 60%, while a bet on a winning Van Staden gives you your wager, that amount again, and an extra 20% of the original thrown in, at 1.2.
Another huge money making opportunity awaits in the D. Hawkey vs. Mikixi bout. There the Durbanite Hawkey has been dubbed the favorite at 0.5. Anyone with the belief that the Angolan Wrecking Machine, Bernardo Mikixi, has made the move of his life and will be unstoppable at light heavyweight (having dropped from heavyweight), will be rewarded with their wager again, plus another 40%, at 1.4.
Further down the main card, former champ Michiel Opperman smashes the odds at 0.6 to Armand de Bruyn’s 1.2, and Wesley Hawkey does the same at 1.2, vs Brendon Katz at 0.6.
BetXchange EFC 33 main card odds are:
McLellan vs. Du Plessis: McLellan the favourite at 0.33 to 2.0.
Van Staden vs. Smith: Smith the favourite at 0.6 to 1.2.
