Mise-o-jeu Avlaverz vs Bute Odds

Early betting odds released by Quebec’s Mise-o-jeu have Eleider Alvarez as the 1.65 favourite over Lucian Bute.

Lucian Bute is one of Canada’s most popular boxers and will surely be the fan favourite in Quebec where he is practically worshiped. However, the Oddsmakers have the young prospect Alvarez as the betting favourite.

Alvarez is also from Quebec and is undefeated at 21-0. While a rising star in professional boxing, Alvarez is not nearly as well known amongst fans of the sport in Canada. However, a win over Lucian Bute would certainly change that.

There is good reason as to why Lucian Bute is the underdog in this fight. Consider the fact that his prime years seem to be behind him as he is 2-3-1 since suffering his first career loss at the hands of Carl Froch back in 2012.

One area that Lucian Bute will have the advantage is in his experience. Bute has 36 career fights — many of them against world class fighter. While the 21 wins of Alvarez have come against a lesser level of competition.

In any case, this should be a boost for the sport of boxing in Canada as all eyes will be on “La belle province” for this fight.
