All Gennady Golovkin Bets You Can Make

All Gennady Golovkin Bets You can Make for the Canelo Superfight

By Loot, Boxing Handicapper,

For those looking to bet on Gennady Golovkin in his September 16 mega-fight with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, there are a lot of ways to do it. Some people think you can just bet on a fighter to win. While that’s a position a lot of bettors take, there are a plethora of different ways to bet that. You can make a more-general bet on GGG winning or you can get downright specific. With the more-severe stance you take, the more handsome the payouts can be.

Gennady Golovkin is a -165 favorite as of press time to beat Canelo in their Vegas bout in September. That’s not a bad line and there’s money to be made just betting GGG straight. But some observers feel really strongly about a fight, especially in super-fights of this nature. It’s a fight that has been percolating for a few years, as people have had time to form their beliefs. And for those whose thoughts on this fight are pointed and specific, boxing prop bets are definitely going to be up your alley.

Some of these positions are pretty harsh. We recommend that you structure your betting in a way that insulates you in the case that you were actually correct, but just not as precise as you wanted. For example, if you think Golovkin will KO Canelo in the 9th round, go ahead and bet GGG to win by KO in the 9th, but maybe bet him in the 8th and 10th too. With a lot of these wagers, the odds pay out so well that you can spread it around a little and not paint yourself into a corner.

Here, we list all bets you can make on GGG. We have the different bets split into categories to make it easier to fathom the GGG betting landscape for this fight. We also offer some guidance along the way, as we break down all the different bets you can place on GGG. Take a look!

General Gennady Golovkin Methods of Victory Bets
Golovkin wins inside distance +176
Golovkin wins by 12 round decision +267
Golovkin wins by KO-TKO-DQ +181
Golovkin wins by any decision +257
Golovkin wins by KO or unanimous dec +105
Thoughts: This group of bets are some of the more mild stances you can take on GGG as far as prop bets go. You can look at these as some of the more reasonable bets you can place on GGG, where you’re just trying to pick if he will win by KO or decision, or if he’ll be victorious inside the distance or by the judges’ scorecards.

Gennady Golovkin Wins by Decision Bets
Golovkin wins by unanimous decision +450
Golovkin wins by split decision +825
Golovkin wins by majority decision +1380
Golovkin wins by technical decision +6000
Thoughts: This is a bet for those who feel Golovkin will be victorious by decision. That’s a more-specialized stance, especially for a fighter who just saw a KO streak of nearly a decade end in his last fight. But a lot of these super-fights go the distance, with some boxers a lot more careful in fights of this sky-high magnitude. So, if you feel GGG is going to win a decision, betting him only to simply win makes little sense, especially when you look at the payouts available for these prop bets.

Golovkin wins in round 1-3 +1378
Golovkin wins in round 4-6 +854
Golovkin wins in round 7-9 +643

Golovkin wins in round 9-12 +532
Golovkin wins in round 1-6 +528
Golovkin wins in round 7-12 +345
Thoughts: Now, we’re getting a little more specific. In these bets where you select a range of rounds, you’re picking GGG to win and you’re saying he will achieve that via the stoppage route. Now you have to pick when that will happen. That’s asking for a lot to go right, but you see by looking at the odds that you will rewarded for that insight if you are correct. The round ranges are 3 and 4 rounds long, giving you a little margin for error, but still asking you to be pretty specific.

Golovkin wins in round 10 +1700
Golovkin wins in round 11 +2000
Golovkin wins in round 12 +2500
Thoughts: These are the toughest ones on the board, where you not only have to pick a fighter to win and that he’s going to do it by stoppage, but in the exact round that’s going to occur! And as you can see by the odds, with the rounds ranking in the high teens to as high as 40-to-1, this bet can really produce in terms of winnings. It’s also asking you to be a fortune teller, of sorts. Again, these are two great fighters. Canelo Alvarez is a fighter who has barely been hurt in the ring and now we have to pick the exact round he’s going to stopped? Yikes! We approach these bets with caution, as they are in fact asking a lot out of the bettor—perhaps too much. But if looking to make a splash on fight-night, these are the bets that pay out the most. We just suggest not limiting yourself to one round and instead taking at least a few rounds as to not paint yourself into a corner.
