Gervonta Davis Betting Outlook vs Romero

Davis is competing in his fourth straight pay-per-view headliner here, he is one of the best lightweights on earth,  and is ranked among the top fighters pound for pound presently fighting in the sport.

The three-division world champion is among the most proven highlight reel generators going with dozens of incredible knockouts to his credit.

Although some saw his last fight as one that was more competitive than they were seemingly expecting.

The trash talk has been steadily transpiring between the two for months now.

The bad blood is boiling and will encroach into the Boxing ring in the coming days.

Davis vs Romero Recent Fights

Isaac Cruz, win via UD Fight 1 Anthony Yigit, win via TKO
Mario Barrios, win via TKO Fight 2 Avery Sparrow, win via TKO
Leo Santa Cruz, win via KO Fight 3 Jackson Marinez, win via UD
Yuriorkis Gamboa, win via TKO Fight 4 Arturs Ahmetovs, win via TKO

Barring a draw in this one, someone’s 0 has got to go in this battle of unbeaten professionals.

Davis has shown demonstrable KO power in every round with stoppages from the first to the twelfth in prior outings. Romero is no slouch in that department either though.

Rolando Romero’s Boxing Odds and Betting Outlook vs Davis

Romero has an awkward but effective syle against the quality of competition he has faced so far. The puncher’s chance tag is being applied to this fight considering the perceived skill gap between the two here.

Double R can crack though and has a fairly defined size advantage. All but two of his fights have ended inside the distance much like Davis.

These two are, on paper, going to deliver an action-heavy fight that will surely delight aficionados and casual fans of the sweet science alike.

Prior to his last outing, Davis accrued a 16-fight stoppage streak and the question here is obvious. Does he begin a new knockout campaign and regain that traction this weekend?

Gervonta Davis vs Rolando Romero Pick & Prediction

A prop bet on this prizefight not going the distance is situated at -550 and considering the punching power of these pugilists, I can see why.

Another prop bet that presents good value, in my estimation, is the line on Davis winning via KO or TKO positioned at -400.

Plus, I would go with the round group betting prop on Davis winning between rounds 4-6 which is valued at +210.

Pick: Gervonta Davis (-1100)
