Let’s analyze the Crawford vs Avanesyan odds as we provide our best bet for the bout.
Terence Crawford vs David Avanesyan Odds
This contest is for the WBO welterweight championship with Crawford and Avanesyan in the champion and challenger roles, respectively.
Terence Crawford’s Betting Outlook vs Avanesyan
Crawford is regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the sport today if not number one outright. It has been a bit over a year since he last competed when Crawford became the first man to stop Shawn Porter en route to retiring him.
Crawford aims to make the sixth successful defense of his WBO welterweight strap and will be the partisan favorite in front of his hometown crowd. He has had seventeen straight world title fights across three weight categories and adds to this incredible legacy tomorrow.
The thought many had was that Crawford would be fighting Errol Spence Jr to determine an undisputed welterweight champion. Alas, that bout tragically fell apart but at least we’ll get to see ‘Bud’ compete once before the calendar year is out.
Crawford vs Avanesyan Recent Fights
|Shawn Porter, win via TKO||Fight 1||Oskari Metz, win via TKO|
|Kell Brook, win via TKO||Fight 2||Liam Taylor, win via TKO|
|Egidijus Kavaliauskas, win via TKO||Fight 3||Josh Kelly, win via TKO|
|Amir Khan, win via TKO||Fight 4||Jose del Rio, win via KO|
While many are happy that a talent like Crawford is able to make a career-high purse of ten million here, this fight is objectively disappointing compared to the proposed Spence Jr unification clash.
The spotless professional record of the multi-division world champion is once again on the line and Avanesyan is looking to turn the boxing world upside down here.
David Avanesyan’s Betting Outlook vs Crawford
Avanesyan is the EBU European welterweight champion and has made five defenses of that 147-pound title. He is the number six ranked contender in the WBO and is riding a six-fight knockout streak heading into this Crawford clash.
Avanesyan also was the interim WBA welterweight world champion a few years ago and looks to once again ascend to world champion status as his biggest career test looms closer.
Crawford has a five-and-a-half reach advantage, unique angles afforded to him by being a southpaw, and has incredible momentum more than perhaps anyone in the sport.
Avanesyan has more than thirty pro fights and a respectable enough resume but he is jumping into the deepest end of the pool here.
Crawford vs Avanesyan Tale of the Tape
Crawford vs Avanesyan Prediction
This prizefight is slated for twelve rounds but I do not see the verdict of the ringside judges factoring into this one.
Crawford has scored nine straight knockout victories and I see that encroaching into the double digits this weekend.
I foresee value in pursuing prop bets on this fight not going the distance (-1600), Crawford winning via KO or TKO (-750), and Crawford retaining between rounds 7-9 (+210).
Pick: Terence Crawford (-1400)
