It’s usually a bad advice to bet your house on just one single wager but Saturday’s bout (Sunday morning in Australia) between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley is a good opportunity to win so we’re giving you the recommendation anyway: bet your house on Pacquiao and live like a king after the match.
There’s also a prevailing thought that it’s never a good idea to put all your eggs in one basket. Thanks to various online sports betting sites, you don’t have to go all-in on Pacquiao (or Bradley) but rather you can “scatter” your entire bankroll (say, $1,000) to a number of betting odds available for the Pacquiao-Bradley match.
Whichever option—all-in for Pacquiao or sprinkled over different betting lines—you make sure you’re loaded with right information that can help you predict the right result for the bout.
