If you’re yet to place a bet at FanDuel VA, this Manny Pacquiao vs. Yordenis Ugas promotion could be just the offer you need.

On Saturday, Pacquiao (67-7-2) fights for the first time in two years when he meets Yordenis Ugas (26-4).

The pay-per-view event costs $74.99 and airs live from T-Mobile Arena near Las Vegas.

And thanks to FanDuel, Virginia sports betting enthusiasts can get +3000 (30-1) odds on either pugilist.

30-1 odds for Manny Pacquiao vs. Yordenis Ugas

Despite the layoff, Pacquiao remains a pretty heavy favorite at Virginia online sportsbooks.

At FanDuel, for example, “PacMan” entered Thursday with -430 odds. The comeback on Ugas was +300. At those odds, you’d need to wager $430 on Pacquiao to profit $100. With Ugas, meanwhile, a $100 wager would net you $430 in profit.

But thanks to FanDuel, you can get +3000 odds on either boxer. This boxing promo replaces FanDuel’s usual sign-up offer and is just for new customers.

The max wager is $5, which means you’re facing a $150 payout if you pick correctly.

Simply place your wager before the fight starts on Saturday, Aug. 21. You’ll first need to make a deposit, and you’ll have to make your wager through the FanDuel mobile app (desktop users will be prompted to download the app).

If your boxer is victorious, you’ll get your payout within 72 hours.

Pacquiao PPV caps off big night of fighting

Pacquiao, a former eight-division champion and one of the greatest boxers of all time, originally was slated to fight Errol Spence Jr. on Saturday night.

However, an eye injury ultimately opened the door for Ugas, the WBA super welterweight champion and an Olympic medalist, to step in as a replacement.

Any Pacquiao fight night is a big deal. But on Saturday, the 42-year-old, who’s also been a Filipino senator since 2016, has some competition.

Not far from the Pacquiao-Ugas fight at T-Mobile Arena, the WWE SummerSlam takes place at nearby Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. However, WWE officials said they plan to wrap up the pro-wrestling event before Pacquiao and Ugas make their way to the ring.

Once the boxing headliner takes place, what should we expect?

Oddsmakers clearly think it’ll last a while. FanDuel set the total at 10.5 rounds, with the over at -215 and +166 on the under as of Thursday.

If you want to bet on whether the bout goes the full 12 rounds, “yes” is -166 and “no” is +120.

Also, if you think the bout could be closer than many observers anticipate, there’s always the option to bet on a draw. FanDuel is offering hefty +2000 odds on the fight ending in a tie on the judges’ scorecards.

Odds for Pacquiao-Ugas undercard

Saturday’s boxing PPV broadcast includes three undercard bouts.

The full lineup features:

  • Welterweight, 12 rounds: Manny Pacquiao (67-7-2) vs. Yordenis Ugas (26-4)
  • Welterweight, 10 rounds: Victor Ortiz (32-6-3) vs. Robert Guerrero (36-6-1)
  • Featherweight, 12 rounds: Mark Magsayo (22-0) vs. Julio Ceja (32-4-1)
  • Featherweight, 10 rounds: Carlos Castro (26-0) vs. Oscar Escandon (25-5)

Although FanDuel didn’t have odds posted for the undercard as of Thursday, DraftKings VA did. Guerrero (-155) is a modest favorite over Ortiz (+115) in the co-headliner. The tie for that bout offers +1800 odds.

Also, Magsayo (-345) is heavily favored over Ceja (+240), and Escandon (+525) is a massive underdog to big fave Castro (-1000).
