Showtime Boxing Odds and Fight Predictions
Bet on Showtime Boxing Odds
When it comes to boxing, don’t even think about overlooking Showtime as a premier network for the sport. While HBO Championship boxing might get all the love, Showtime has hosted plenty of historic moments and has aggressively gone after today’s stars.
The network has two separate broadcasts for boxing: Showtime Championship Boxing and ShoBox: The New Generation. While the biggest fights are usually Showtime-promoted pay-per-view events, you can catch Showtime Championship Boxing and ShoBox on their live channels.
Whether the card is on pay-per-view or live on television, you can always bet on Showtime boxing odds with a major online sportsbook. If you’re looking for the latest odds, upset picks and betting guides, we’ve got daily articles from boxing experts ready to help you out.
These articles often feature boxing moneylines and odds from BookMaker.eu, a top-rated sportsbook at Gamblers Palace. Every major sportsbook updates their boxing odds daily, so you should definitely be keeping track of fight odds as soon as they open. You can keep checking back here for the latest news.

Reading Between the Lines
When the fight was first announced, most oddsmakers opened with Mayweather around a -1100 favorite. But heavy action on the Irishman has more than halved his price to win - Vegas sportsbooks are reporting that almost 80% of the bets have gone on McGregor.
It’s rare to see such drastic line movement, but as we mentioned above, we’ve never seen a fight like this in the sport’s history. Obviously, this is good news for anyone that was going to bet Mayweather, as his money line is far more affordable than it was a couple months ago.
Mayweather vs. McGregor is a megafight circus in every aspect, and sportsbooks are getting into the act, coming out with crazy prop bets unlike anything I’ve seen in my 10 + years of covering combat sports.
Case in point: currently, you can bet on how many times McGregor is going to bring up Mayweather’s women-battering past on social media. That’s actually something you can wager money on!
With nearly pick’em odds, there really is no money line to take advantage of here - especially since neither the over or under offers a positive payout. Based on how many people are betting the under on 9.5 rounds, the under on 8.5 at -110 seems like a decent play...Continue to Over/Under Pick
Fight Prop Predictions
The best values on this prop bet are the “Yes” on McGregor getting knocked down. At -238, it’s not crazy expensive and it seems likely that the Irishman will get caught by the boxing superstar at some point over 12 possible rounds...Continue to Props Predictions... Continueto Over/Under Pick
Who hits the canvas Prediction
There is no shortage of fun, “special” prop bets for the Mayweather vs. McGregor megafight, but one of the most compelling is being able to wager on whether one of them gets knocked down. There are “Yes” and “No” wagers for either fighter, and the current money lines tell you a lot about this fight in general... Continue to Prediction
What Rounds does it end Prediction
Feeling real lucky? Then try your hand at not only picking the winner of the Mayweather-McGregor fight, but calling which round either man ends the fight. That’s a total of 26 possible outcomes, one for each round, winning on points or a draw.
You’ve basically got to be Nostradramus to win this prop bet, but the payouts are ridiculous: +1400 is the lowest money line, with payouts up to +10000. In non-betting terms, that means you could win $10,000 with just a $100 bet... Continue to Prediction.

Major Boxing Matches In Showtime History
1986 - “Marvelous” Marvin Hagler defeats John “The Beast” Mugabi with a stunning 11th-round knockout on the debut broadcast of Showtime Championship Boxing.
1995 - Nigel Benn defended his WBC super middleweight belt against Gerald McClellan via 10th round TKO. McClellan spent two months in a coma after the fight, with massive brain injuries. Benn suffered a broken nose and jaw and minor brain injuries of his own. The fight is still regarded as one of the most savage in the sport’s history.
2005 - Diego Corrales and Jose Luis Castillo put on the consensus Fight of the Year in a WBC lightweight title match. In a rousing, back-and-forth affair, Corrales finally knocks out Castillo in the 10th.
2007-2008 - Israel Vazquez and Rafael Marquez fight four times in two years. And every fight manages to be awesome. In the first fight, Marquez wins when Vazquez cannot continue after Round 7. The next time around, Vazquez knocks out Marquez in the sixth round. The second scrap is named Fight of the Year and has the Round of the Year per Ring Magazine.
They then put on an even better fight in March 2008. Vazquez barely squeaks by with a split decision, mainly because he knocks Marquez down in the final frame. Of course they win yet another Fight of the Year in 2008. In the fourth and final fight, Marquez exacts revenge with a third-round TKO.
Current Notable Showtime Fighters
Ruslan Provodnikov - 25-4, 18 KOs
Provodnikov has enjoyed an extended stay near the top of the rankings, fighting some of the sport’s best fighters in Timothy Bradley, Chris Algieri and Mike Alvarado. In 2013, he was awarded Fight of the Year by the BWAA for his wild scrap with Bradley.
Keith Thurman Jr. 27-0, 22 KOs
Thurman is a welterweight champion, ranked number one in the world and fifth-best pound-for-pound fighter as recently as June 2016. Though he’s known for his power, many have come to respect his slick technical skills as well.
Jermell Charlo - 23-0, 18 KOs, Jermall Charlo - 27-0, 12 KOs
The Charlo twins are chasing history as the first twins to hold titles in the same division. They’ll probably never end up fighting each other, but if they keep their undefeated records intact, the calls for a twin vs. twin bout would be undeniably loud -- and justified.
Deontay Wilder - 35-0, 34 KOs
Anytime you have an undefeated heavyweight with 34 KOs in 35 fights, people are going to take notice. Wilder is a former Olympic bronze medalist and the current WBC champion, and his straight right hand might as well be registered as a deadly weapon. With a nearly 100% knockout ratio, Wilder is a fighter to watch.
