JMM doesnt need to go for broke, he needs to raise his output and stop laying back in close rounds. His unwillingness to close out strong gets reflected in the scoring.
Meanwhile, Pacquiao needs to do exactly what he says he's going to do - be more aggressive. He's been too laid back lately. I don't know if he still has the stamina / mindset to do it anymore but, an aggressive, high-paced fight will always favor him.
