Joshua v Parker Betting Preview and Odds - Betting Guide
By Michael Flynn, Mar 31 2018 06:51AM
On Saturday night, British undisputed world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua takes to the ring for his latest bout against Kiwi WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker, who will enact as Joshua’s 21st opponent.
Joshua boats 20 knockouts from all 20 fights whilst his challenger, Parker, boasts 24 fights undefeated including 18 knockouts. It’s fair to say that Parker, of Samoan descent, is well-renowned for a solid chin and is more than capable of giving Joshua his toughest challenge yet, having never once been knocked down in professional or amateur boxing. Joshua does have a 2” height and 4” reach advantage over his opponent however, further strengthening his cause and he could well be the first to see Parker floored.
In the latest bouts, Joshua has offered great value against Klitschko and Takam respectively. The latest challenger Takam (whom replaced injured Pulev 12 days prior to the fight), hit the deck in round 10 as a result of Joshua’s clean uppercut and a barrage of punches but it was Klitschko whom offered the true challenge in the fight prior. The pair went toe-to-toe for 11 rounds which saw both boxers knocked down in an intense battle that was one of the most entertaining boxing bouts in years – in front of a post-war record of 90,000 fans, whilst over 10 million viewers tuned in worldwide, showing tremendous opportunity for your promotion of the forthcoming fight!
Parker is somewhat lesser known but his latest three wins have come from ‘decision’ calls after 12 rounds and the clear outsider with bet365, although these odds have shortened by some way already hinting at a popular backing for the Kiwi. There are a range of markets available for this heavyweight bout at bet365.com and whilst Joshua is the short price favourite, Round Betting and 5-Way Fight Outcome markets offer solid value.

Your Bet Credits will normally be available to use within one hour of the qualifying settled bet requirement being met.
You may have more than one Bet Credits offer available on your account at any one time. However, qualifying settled bets will only count towards releasing one of the offers. You may choose which offer is active within the Members section.
Bets placed using our Telephone Betting service will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits.

Using Bet Credits
Your Bet Credits are non-withdrawable. Any returns from Bet Credits stakes will be added to your Withdrawable Balance but Bet Credits stakes are not included in any returns. For example, a £10 bet placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) would give a return of £30 (£20 winnings plus £10 stake), whereas a £10 Bet Credits stake placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) would give a net return of £20, as the £10 Bet Credits stake is not returned.
Stakes can be funded in part by your Bet Credits and part with your Withdrawable Balance; however the Bet Credits element of the stake will not be included in any returns. For example, a £10 bet placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) which was funded by £5 Bet Credits and £5 cash would give a net return of £25 (£20 winnings plus £5 cash stake) as the £5 Bet Credits stake would not be returned.
For the purpose of Cash Out, the value displayed will already have the Bet Credits stake removed and will be the actual return received if Cashed Out.
Your Bet Credits cannot be:
transferred to Casino, Games, Poker, Vegas or Bingo;
used as stakes on Tote (including other pool betting) and Lotto markets;
used as stakes on Bankers, If Bets, Reverse If Bets, Teasers or bets placed using our Telephone Betting service.
Your Bet Credits will be forfeit and removed if your account is inactive for 90 consecutive days. Making a deposit, placing a Sports bet or participation in any Casino, Poker, Games, Vegas or Bingo product is deemed as having activity on an account.
