How the public is betting Manny Pacquiao and Yordenis Ugas as of Saturday morning

We break down the betting splits as of Thursday, August 19th as Manny Pacquiao challenges Yordenis Ugas for the WBA welterweight title.

Manny Pacquiao and Yordenis Ugas enter the ring on Saturday night to fight for Ugas’ WBA Super welterweight title. Pacquiao had been scheduled to fight Errol Spence, Jr. for the WBC and IBF welterweight titles but Spence had to withdraw two weeks ago due to an eye injury.

Pacquiao was an underdog against Spence, sitting at +170 before Spence withdrew. When Ugas was moved into the main event from the co-feature, Pacquiao became a -360 favorite. Over the final 24 hours before the fight, Pacquiao has moved to -380 to win.

Given the late change, there isn’t as much money on the fight as there would normally be. However, what money there is on the fight is on Pacquiao to win. He’s getting 63% of the handle and 74% of the bets. We don’t have splits on fight outcome, but Pacquiao by decision is +115 and by KO, TKO, or DQ is +160. Ugas’ best odds are a decision win at +400.
