Crawford vs Porter Odds
Odds as of November 17th at DraftKings
The WBO world welterweight championship is being contested for here as Crawford looks to remain champion against a dangerous contender in Porter.
Terence Crawford’s Boxing Odds & Betting Outlook vs Porter
Crawford is a world champion across three weight categories. He was the lineal champion at lightweight and the lineal as well undisputed champion at junior welterweight before heading up for even more challenges.
In his six fights at welterweight, Crawford is now readying to make his fifth defense of a welterweight world title.
This is the type of test at 147 pounds that Crawford has long been looking for.
With Terence Crawford’s affiliation with Top Rank and most elite welterweights fighting under the PBC banner, promotional differences did not smoothly allow for several meaningful fights to be made.
Crawford vs Porter Recent Fights
|Kell Brook, win via TKO||Fight 1||Sebastian Formella, win via UD|
|Egidijus Kavaliauskas, win via TKO||Fight 2||Errol Spence Jr, loss via SD|
|Amir Khan, win via TKO||Fight 3||Yordenis Ugas, win via SD|
|Jose Benavidez Jrwin via TKO||Fight 4||Danny Garcia, win via UD|
Curiously though this fight is Crawford’s last on his Top Rank deal.
Meaning he would theoretically be free to pursue deals with other promotional bodies that can facilitate these sorts of elite caliber matches fans have long yearned to see.
Before all of these dream match opportunities can happen though, Crawford needs to show out against the hardest challenge he has ever faced, on paper.
Shawn Porter’s Boxing Odds & Betting Outlook vs Crawford
Porter is a two-time former world champion in this weight division. Come this weekend, the former WBC titleholder will have tested skills against the entire field of current welterweight champions (Crawford, Errol Spence Jr, and Yordenis Ugas).
Shawn Porter steps into the ring with a man many see as the number one pound for pound fighter currently in the sport. But he is as stiff of a challenge as Bud Crawford has faced as of yet.
He captured the WBC silver belt last time out, but now Shawn Porter hungers for WBO gold.
I think the forward aggression and pressure heavy style of Porter in conjunction with Crawford’s punching power and savvy counter striking ability creates a recipe for this contest not going to the judges’ scorecards.
This prizefight not going the distance is valued at +125, and I think that is a solid choice for a prop bet.
Terence Crawford vs Shawn Porter Tale of the Tape
Terence Crawford vs Shawn Porter Pick & Prediction
In summation, I foresee hearing the in-ring announcer uttering “and still” aloud as the bout reaches its climax.
Across his three pro losses, Porter has never been stopped inside the distance. I think that changes this weekend.
Crawford has accrued a nice finishing streak and has halted his last eight straight opponents. Terence Crawford winning via KO or TKO is situated at +140 in the Crawford vs Porter odds, and I see this as a good prop betting opportunity.
Pick: Terence Crawford (-600)
