Davis is the overwhelming favorite in this one and that shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Davis is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. Yes Garcia is also undefeated, but his resume does not come close to matching Davis'. The oddsmakers have a Davis KO/TKO as the most likely outcome.

Gervonta Davis vs Hector Luis Garcia Prediction

While there is almost no point in betting Davis on the moneyline, you could get some value by taking him to win by decision at +420. Garcia's last three fights and wins have all come by decision, so he could be playing the long game with Davis too, trying to pick his spots and come away with a technical-based victory.

Another way to bet this without paying the astronomical moneyline odds is to bet the fight to not go the distance, which is still -450, but much better than the -1450 moneyline odds.

Bet: Gervonta Davis to win by Points (+420)
