If there is anyone who can adapt to the awkward style of Billy Joe Saunders, it’s Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the sport. They’ll fight on Saturday in Arlington, Texas, in front of a crowd of around 75,000 fans in a super middleweight title unification bout.

At BetMGM, Alvarez is a whopping -700 favorite to add a third belt to his collection. Saunders is +400.

Alvarez by decision opened at +160, but has been bet down to +100.

Alvarez has gone to decision against his last three elite opponents in their primes: Callum Smith on Dec. 19, Daniel Jacobs on May 4, 2019, and Gennadiy Golovkin on Sept. 15, 2019.

Will it happen again Saturday night?
