Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week – March 18th, 2024

By Hank Blaine

This weekend’s boxing action takes place on Saturday in Sheffield, England. Sheffield’s soccer club isn’t faring well in the Premier League this season, but that won’t put a damper on DAZN’s terrific boxing card. Not only does Sandy Ryan take on Terri Harper for the WBO Women’s Welterweight Title, but Jose Zepeda throws down against Dalton Smith in what should be an awesome main event. Check out boxing odds, analysis, and free picks for this weekend’s top boxing matches.

Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week (March 18th, 2024)

Smith vs. Zepeda – Utilita Arena, Sheffield, Yorkshire, England (DAZN)

  • When: Saturday, March 23rd, 2024. 3:00pm ET

    Leli Buttigieg vs. Bartlomiej Stryczek

    23-year-old Erik Robles Ayala boasts a terrific 15-1 record. Ayala’s lone loss came versus Carlos Daniel Acosta way back in 2020. Since then, Ayala has rolled.

    Liam Davies is 15-0. Not only that, but the UK boxer fights in front of his fans at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham, England. So Davies should be the favorite. However, he faces a brawler on Saturday. At the odds, Ayala is worth a shot.

    Boxing Betting Pick: Leli Buttigieg

    Ishmael Davis vs. Troy Williamson

    The top four fights on DAZN’s card in Sheffield doesn’t have a favorite that offers less than a – 350 payout. That’s good news for underdog boxing bettors.

    In this case, Ishmael Davis might be an underlay at -300. Although Davis has excellent boxing skills, he’s 12-0, the favorite in this has stopped just 6 opponents before the final bell. A 50% KO rate isn’t always bad. But Davis hasn’t fought anyone close to Troy Williamson’s ability.

    Williamson is 20-2-1 with 14 stoppage victories. Although Williamson has lost 2-of-3, the losses came against strong competition. Once these two start mixing it up, Troy will gain the advantage.

    Boxing Betting Pick: Troy Williamson +200

    James Flint vs. Campbell Hatton // British Central Area Super Lightweight Title

    The excellent matchups continue when James Flint throws down against Campbell Hatton. Flint is the slightest of dogs. James has great feet and terrific defense. His lone loss came via decision.

    Ah, but the 3 stoppage victories leave much to be desired. Campbell Hatton is 14-0. Like Flint, he’s a good boxer, but doesn’t have much power. This can go either way. So taking a swing on a higher possible payout makes sense.

    Boxing Betting Pick: James Flint +125

    Sandy Ryan vs. Terri Harper // WBO World Female Welterweight Title

    6-1-1 with 2 stoppage victories, Sandy Ryan is the favorite in her massive bout against the more accomplished Terri Harper. Harper is 14-1-2 with 6 stoppage wins.

    Harper comes off a draw in October versus Cecilia Breakhus. Terri has fought the much tougher opponents. So if he odds hold, consider the +225 as terrific value.

    Boxing Betting Pick: Terri Harper +225

    Dalton Smith vs. Jose Zepeda // WBC International Super Lightweight Title

    Not all British boxers use their feet, play defense, and look to pile up points and win via decision. Take Dalton Smith. The favorite in this has an awesome 15-0 record with 11 stoppage victories.

    Smith is talented in every phase of the sweet science. He takes on a real pro on Saturday, though. Jose Zepeda has won 37 times, knocked out 28 of his opponents, and lost just 4 times. But Zepeda is 34. So Jose is on the back end of his career. The much younger chalk gets it done.

    Boxing Betting Pick: Dalton Smith -300
