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.
