Where To Watch: 


Why bet on Errol Spence Jr.?

Spence Jr. is one of the biggest names in boxing today, being world champion with his country in 2012 and developing one of the most important careers in the sport in recent years. 

After surviving a car accident, the 33-year-old boxer returned to competition on December 5, 2020, defeating Danny Garcia. However, since then he has only fought once, beating Cuban Yordenis Ugas by knockout. He has not averaged a fight per year since 2020. 

The Truth, as he is nicknamed, has a 72-inch reach with his powerful southpaw, which makes him a danger to any contender in his division.

Why bet on Terrence Crawford?

Terrence Crawford is not only fighting for the honor in one of the best bouts of his career, but if he becomes undisputed welterweight champion, he will be the first fighter in the four-belt era to be the absolute king in two divisions, as he did it in super lightweight.

Bud, 35, has had one fight per year since 2020, beating Kell Brook and Shawn Porter by decision, the latter with quite a bit of media buzz, and David Avanesyan with a knockout. As an eye-catching fact, Crawford beat 100% of his 147-pound opponents.

The Nebraska native has a reach of 74 inches and his knockout percentage is 76.9.

Final Betting Analysis – Errol Spence Jr. vs. Terrence Crawford

Undoubtedly this fight promises to be one of the closest of the year, so it could be difficult for a knockout to appear in the first rounds. However, due to the quality of the last fights and his ability to fight as a right or southpaw, Errol Spence Jr. could have a slight advantage, although physically it is presumed that Terrence Crawford is better. It should be noted that these two Americans have never been knocked to the canvas in a fight.

At we find that Terrence Crawford is the favorite of the match with a Moneyline of -142, while Errol Spence Jr. starts at +132.

In this kind of fight, we usually see that the current champion is a massive favorite, but this is not the case. The odds are pretty close, showing the quality of the bout, but also pointing to favoritism for the challenger. The reason, we believe, is simple: Terrence is the best fighter in the world at the moment and will face an out-of-rhythm boxer that has not shown major things in almost three years.

Yeah, world boxing was pretty emphatic with Spence Jr.’s situation, but that doesn’t mean that he’ll remain a champion forever out of pure comprehensiveness. We’ll go with the sportsbooks, and, actually, believe that there will be a knock-out in the 8th round.

Go for a straight win for Terrence in the Moneyline. If you bet $100 on the win at -142, you will gain $70.42 for a total payout of $170.42.
