Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week (July 31st, 2023)

Krasniqi vs. Mohammed – Fadil Vokrri Stadium, Pristina, Kosovo

  • When: Saturday, August 5, 2023. 12:00pm ET.

Robin Krasniqi vs. Nadjib Mohammedi

Both these guys are going to throw. Nadjib Mohammedi is 45-9 with 25 technical knockout wins. Mohammedi has won 4-of-5 via TKO.

Robin Krasniqi is 52-7. Krasniqi has 30 stoppage victories. Robin is the chalk because of his 7 losses, just a single one came via knockout. 6 of Mohammedi’s 9 losses have come via TKO or KO. Krasniqi should secure his twenty-first stoppage victory on Saturday.

Boxing Betting Pick: Robin Krasniqi -476

Paul vs. Diaz – American Airlines Arena, Dallas, TX

  • When: Saturday, August 5, 2023. 8:00pm ET.

Shadasia Green vs. Olivia Curry

Curry is a decent boxer. She’s 7-1 with a couple of stoppage victories. But this is a massive, tremendously massive, step up in class.

Green is 12-0. A single opponent, Irais Hernandez in 2019, has gone the distance with Shadasia. In her last, Shadasia pummeled 8-1 Ellen Cederroos, ending Cederroos’ night in the sixth round via technical knockout. Shadasia wins this before the final bell.

Boxing Betting Pick: Shadasia Green -2500

Ashton Sylve vs. William Silva

Sylve will be looking for another highlight reel win. The massive chalk in this is 9-0 with 8 stoppage wins. Sylve beat Adam Kipenga via eight round unanimous decision in his last.

The chalk is taking another step up in class going against William Silva. The underdog has a nice 30-4 record. Silva has stopped 18 of his opponents before the final bell.

But Silva also has a major flaw. William has lost 3-of-4 via knockout or technical knockout. Sylve wins and Ashton should win via KO.

Boxing Betting Pick: Ashton Sylve -3333

Amanda Serrano vs. Heather Hardy // Undisputed Female Featherweight Title

Hardy and Serrano throw down for five straps on the Paul versus Diaz undercard. Amanda should beat her friend Hardy. So instead of backing Serrano on the money line, we’ll look to play the total rounds.

Serrano hast stopped 30 of her opponents before the end of the fight. Overall, Amanda has 44 wins. Hardy has 24 wins with 2 losses. Neither of Heather’s losses occurred via stoppage. Hardy will stand upright throughout the entire fight. Serrano wins via decision.

Boxing Betting Pick: Amanda Serrano Over 8.5 -116

Nate Diaz vs. Jake Paul

Paul vs. Diaz is one of this year’s top grudge boxing matches. Nate is making his pro debut. Boxing skills wise, Jake has a massive edge. Paul also has the edge because he’s over a decade younger than Nate Diaz.

Diaz, though, is one of the toughest combat sports fighters in history. Paul has never faced a brutal mixed martial artist on Nate Diaz’s level. Also, although many believe Diaz’s jiu-jitsu won’t come in handy, it might if Nate decides to use leverage and footwork to win angles against Paul.

The key for Diaz is to stick as close as possible to Jake. Nate fought for the bout to go ten rounds because he knows, like he has done so many times in his MMA career, he can outlast Jake, or has a good chance to do so, in a contest of endurance.

This is shaping up as one of the bigger boxing upsets of 2023. Nate Diaz will stick to Paul’s chest throughout and wear down the bigger and younger man. Diaz wins via late round knockout or decision.

Boxing Betting Pick: Nate Diaz +300
