Best bet for Terence Crawford vs. Errol Spence in welterweight championship fight

433

It’s finally here! The biggest fight in the sport of boxing in a very long time. Two undefeated welterweights that can each make factual, legitimate arguments that they are the BEST fighter walking the face of the planet. 

Terence Crawford vs Errol Spence Saturday evening at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to determine who is the world’s best pound-for-pound boxer. 

 

The question now becomes how do i not only enjoy what should be an all-time great fight but make money on it as well. Here is how i will be wagering Saturday night.

The fight opened with Crawford as a small -120 favorite, but Crawford has since been bet up to -160 favorite. Spence sits as an underdog for the first time in his career at +140. This is on paper a 50/50 fight so if you side with Spence simply on value I understand. I am taking a different approach i like Terence Crawford to not only win, but win by knockout! 

At the 147-pound weight limit, Crawford has never had an opponent make it to the final bell, starting with Jeff Horn (who was coming off a win vs Manny Pacquiao. Crawford is 7-0 all by TKO/KO at 147 pounds. If you rewatch the Spence vs Yordenis Ugas fight, Ugas was able to hurt Spence multiple times, but he never pressed the gas in those moments. In what i think will be a great fight while it lasts, I’m taking Crawford to win by TKO/KO/DQ at a nice +270

Crawford to win via TKO/KO/DQ  +270.
