Manny Pacquiao is a wide -500 to -700 favorite at online sportsbooks to defeat Brandon Rios on Saturday night in Macau, China. Rios backers can get +350 to +400. With such one-sided odds, more scrutiny is paid to the proposition bets.

Even though Pacquiao hasn’t scored a stoppage win since 2009 against Miguel Cotto, oddsmakers are convinced Pacman will get the iron-jawed Rios out early on Saturday night, establishing Pacman at -175 to -220 to win by KO, TKO or DQ. A Pacman win by decision will net +250 to +300. Rios is +550 to +650 to win by KO, TKO or DQ and a whopping +1000 to +1600 to win by decision.

An over/under is set at 9.5 rounds with over at +115 and under is -135.
