Written by on February 19, 2018

The start of another week means that we have another big selection of boxing betting picks to look forward to over the next few days. We have 4 fights to talk about this coming week, all of which you can easily find on TV. We will provide all the details, including the latest boxing odds, when we preview each of these 4 fights. There is no need to wait until the weekend for your fighting fix this week, as things get rolling with a title fight on Thursday night, which is the one that we will look at first.

Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week – February 19th Edition

Victor Terrazas vs. Joseph Diaz

  • Division: Super Featherweight
  • Records: 38-4-2 / 25-0-0
  • Boxing Betting Odds: TBA
This is a 10-round fight for the WBO NABO featherweight title, and it can be seen on ESPN 2 on Thursday night at 10 PM EST. At just 25 years of age, Diaz is entering the prime fighting years of his career, and he is doing so with an unbeaten 25-0 record, with 13 of those wins coming via KO. While this is a young man that can flash some power, he can also go the distance, which he has had to do in each of his last 3 fights. This is a comeback of sorts for the 35-year old Terrazas, as he has not had a fight since 2013. His career record is 38-4-2, with 21 wins via KO. He will certainly be no pushover, but I like Diaz to finish this one in the middle rounds.

Johnathan Gonzalez vs. Ricardo Rodriguez

  • Division: Super Flyweight
  • Records: 19-2-1 / 16-5-0
  • Boxing Betting Odds: TBA
This 10-round flyweight bout is set to go on Friday night in Kissimmee, Florida at 10 PM EST, and it can be seen live on Telemundo. Rodriguez is coming into this fight having lost back to back bouts, the latest of which came last October in the bantamweight division. He has a career record of 16-5, with just 5 KO wins, which suggests he will need to go the distance to win. Gonzalez is 19-2, with 12 of his wins coming by KO, so a drastic difference in power between these two fighters. I think the losing streak continues for Rodriguez in this one.

Juan Francisco Estrada vs. Wisaksil Wangek

  • Division: Super Flyweight
  • Records: 36-0-2 / 44-4-1
  • Boxing Betting Odds: +100 / -140
This one is set to go on Saturday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California, and it can be seen live on HBO at 9 PM EST. What we have here is a WBC Super Flyweight title fight, which promises to be a good one. Estrada is the holder of the WBA and WBO crowns at this weight class, with his most recent win coming via unanimous decision last September. Wisaksil Wangek should be one of your Boxing Betting Picks of the Week. Estrada is now 36-2 with 25 KO wins in his career. Wangek is a veteran fighter out of Thailand who comes into this bout with a 44-4-1 career record, which includes a dazzling 40 KO wins. Wangek won and defended this title last year, and I think he will do so again in this one.

Brian Viloria vs. Artem Dalakian

  • Division: Flyweight
  • Records: 38-5-0 / 15-0-0
  • Boxing Betting Odds: TBA
This fight for the vacant WBA Super Flyweight title can be found on the same card as the Estrada/Wangek fight, which should make for a very entertaining evening of boxing on Friday. Viloria is the more experienced of the two fighters, coming into this one with a 38-5 record that includes 23 KO wins. He was knocked out in the 9th round by Roman Gonzalez in a WBC Flyweight title bout last time out. Dalakian comes in with an unbeaten record at 15-0, with 11 of those victories coming by KO. Given the power that these two men can flash, I don’t see this going the full 12 rounds. I’m taking Viloria to win.
