Eubank is the clear favorite in this one and that shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Eubank is one of the top middleweight fighters today. Smith also has an impressive record, this is his first-ever middleweight fight. The oddsmakers have Eubank winning by points as the most likely outcome.

Chris Eubank Jr vs Liam Smith Prediction

Eubank should be able to take advantage in Smith's first-ever middleweight fight. Having said that, there isn't a ton of value to be had by taking Eubank at -280 on the moneyline. Instead, I'm looking at him to win by points at +115.

On top of being 9-2 when his fights go the distance, four of Eubank's last seven fights have headed to the judges' table. While Smith's last three fights have all ended by knockout, 41.7% of his 36 career bouts have gone the distance.

I like Eubank's odds in a longer fight, so side with him winning by points.

Bet: Chris Eubank Jr. by Points (+115)
