Ward a heavy favorite to beat Dawson

The odds, which have been posted at all 10 of the MGM Resorts International Race & Sports Books in Las Vegas for the last month, show an increase in momentum for smaller, undefeated WBA, WBC super middleweight world champion Andre “SOG” Ward (-380) over the bigger man WBC light heavyweight titleholder “Bad” Chad Dawson (+300) on Saturday at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif. Ward’s betting support has seen a late week surge to a four to one favorite over Dawson, pushing the earlier postings of Ward (-340) three-and-a-half to one over Dawson (+280) to a now impressive four to one favorite. The fight opened at a three to one favorite for Ward.
