Last Updated: Jul 28, 2023

The long-anticipated showdown between Terence Crawford and Errol Spence for the Welterweight Champions of the World will take place on July 29 in Las Vegas.

The two fighters are a combined 67-0 with 52 knockouts and sit near the top of all pound-for-pound rankings in the sport.

Who will claim bragging rights in one of the most pivotal matchups at 147 pounds in years? Let’s take a look at current betting odds and make a fight prediction.

Spence vs Crawford lines were found at FanDuel Sportsbook and are current as of July 27 at 7 a.m. ET.

  • Method of Victory (Crawford): Crawford Decision (+175) | Crawford KO (+320)

Spence vs Crawford Prediction

Terence Crawford defeats Errol Spence (Decision)

Spence is a technical beast who is a more natural Welterweight than Crawford.

However, Crawford is one of the most gifted instinctive fighters of this generation and has the ability to bend fighters to his will. I expect the 35-year-old to bend the pace to his style.

Some may point to Spence causing issues as a southpaw, but Crawford has the ability to adapt in the ring with technical precision. In addition, Crawford has been more active than Spence, who was out of action following a major car crash.

This is going to be an outstanding fight, with little daylight between the two fighters. That said, I give almost every important advantage to Crawford.

Spence vs Crawford Best Prop Bets

Crawford Wins by Decision (+175)

FanDuel Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit

As mentioned above, Crawford is one of the best fighters of this generation, and I expect him to come out on top. However, Spence is no pushover, and I would anticipate this fight to go the distance, making a Crawford decision my boxing best bet.

Spence vs Crawford: Goes The Distance (-200)

FanDuel Sportsbook • WAGER: 2 units

If Spence does manage to get the best of Crawford, I would still expect the fight to go the distance. If you wanted to be more conservative, you could simply place multiple units on a “Goes The Distance" wager that covered either fighter being victorious if the match goes 12 rounds.
