I saw this one up on pinnacle with Marquez at +120. I think Marquez takes this fight! Any thoughts?

I don't know exactly what the fight opened up at, but I got two big hits on marquez when it was +140... I like JMM to win a undec in this... I think if barrera lays back and tries to box, JMM will pick him apart and if barrera is aggressive, JMM is that good a counterpuncher to get the advantage... both guys look to be in incredible shape, weight doesn't appear to be a problem and I just gotta think barrera is wearing down... even in their prime though, I've always thought JMM was the best of the three amigos...

I agree on all accounts, I think they picked an incorrect favorite on this one, I think this is a fight I might go hard at

I think the draw has a lot of value here....

+1251 right now at Pinny but it opened higher if I remember correctly....

The three judges for the bour are Judge: Patricia Morse Jarman | Judge: Paul Smith | Judge: Doug Tucker...

Tucker and Jarman's last fight judged together was Oscar De La Hoya vs. Fernando Vargas in 2002 and they were seeing things quite a bit differently then.

 What do you guys make of this? Just some things I wanted to bounce off you guys...

To be honest, that Jarmin score kind of worries me. i just don't know what to make of it. I had a score similar to the 96-94 the others had, maybe slightly even more in Oscar's favor if I remember correctly. I see Marquez playing the DLH role in this fight and Barrera playing the Vargas role. I certainly hope the judges dont screw it up, but thats a risk im willing to take. Bottom line I think Barrera has just been through too many wars and Marquez is just too sharp right now. Those scores do make me shudder a bit though.

To be fair, although I did bet on Marquez, I don't think he really won that fight.

I thought JMM won but just not as lopsided as the judges had it... I had it 115-112 with the point deduction... now the hopkins fight which I also bet on, that was a horrible call and I was lucky to get away with that bet.. and after the rollarcoaster of betting on mormeck earlier in the day, it was a great but shaky day...
