Andy Ruiz vs Luis Ortiz Prediction

Ruiz should be motivated in this one, considering he's closer to getting a title shot than Ortiz is. While there isn't much value on the moneyline for Ruiz, you can get close to even money odds on him to win by KO/TKO. This has been Ruiz's most common form of victory and being more than 10 years younger than Ortiz, stamina could play a big role in this fight. I wouldn't expect a very quick knockout here, but for the value, banking on Ruiz connecting with a late haymaker is something I like.

Bet Ruiz to win via KO/TKO (-110)
