Davis vs Garcia Prediction & Best Bet
It's can be tough to bet a fight when you have two fighters this talented and closely matched. Of course, when things are this close but the betting odds are a little lopsided, value starts to pop up for the underdog.
Despite his lesser experience and resume, I like the value on Ryan Garcia in this one.
He is a smart, technical, and methodical fighter that has both the physical tools and mental prowess to come away with the upset here — and it's not often you get to say a win would be an upset for a guy who is 23-0 with 19 KOs.
That's what happens when you're up against someone that looks as unstoppable as Davis though. He's not only undefeated, but he's almost never even been in a close fight - with the only thing close to a blemish on his record being a unanimous decision (115-113, 115-113, 116-112) win over Isaac Cruz.
This will be the toughest test Tank has ever faced though, both in terms of skill and size. And it's that combination that has me leaning Garcia.
King Ry holds significant advantages in both the height and reach departments — which are two things he knows very well how to use against smaller fighters. He will able to attack from further away, lessening the chance he gets caught with a Davis haymaker.
Garcia's power shouldn't be understated either though. He has the ability to put someone on the canvas quickly. In fact, two wins in his last five fights have come by KO in Round 1, and two others in Round 6 and Round 7.
If Garcia can protect against that, control the tempo of this fight and not let his body get torn apart by the experienced Davis, he has a great chance to win this fight.
Bet: Garcia to Win (+215)
