Davis vs. García Prediction

As David Kaestle writes at TheDuel:

While there is almost no point in betting Davis on the moneyline, you could get some value by taking him to win by decision at +420. García‘s last three fights and wins have all come by decision, so he could be playing the long game with Davis too, trying to pick his spots and come away with a technical-based victory.

Another way to bet this without paying the astronomical moneyline odds is to bet the fight to not go the distance, which is still -450, but much better than the -1450 moneyline odds.

DAVIS VS. GARCÍA BEST BET: Gervonta Davis to win by points (+420)
