Vasiliy Lomachenko is in the process of rebuilding his resume after losing his lightweight titles to Teofimo Lopez back in October of 2020.

He's strung together two wins in a row with a TKO victory over Masayoshi Nakatini and a unanimous decision win against Richard Commey. He's seeking a third straight victory on Saturday when he faces No. 9 lightweight in the world, Jamaine Ortiz.

Let's take a look at the odds for the fight, and then I'll give you my best bet. The odds listed below are via BetRivers Sportsbook.

Vasiliy Lomachenko vs. Jamaine Ortiz Odds

  • Vasiliy Lomachenko -2500
  • Jamaine Ortiz +800

Vasiliy Lomachenko vs. Jamaine Ortiz Prediction

Lomachenko has been one of the greatest fighters of the current generation, but his time might be coming to an end. He has two professional losses now at 34 years old, and now he has to take on a 26-year old phenom who has a chance to take a big step into the public eye.

Ortiz has an undefeated 16-0-1 record, but there's no doubt that this is a big step up in competition for him. With that being said, Lomachenko is too big of a favorite, which means the value lies on Ortiz at +800.

Ortiz defeated former champion, Jamel Herring, earlier this year. He has shown he has the ability to one day become a champion. Lomachenko has been beaten down by a tough career, and I think this is going to open people eye's to the fact he may be entering the end of career.

I'll take a shot on Ortiz as an 8/1 underdog.

Best bet: Jamaine Ortiz +800
