Rey Vargas vs O'Shaquie Foster Prediction & Best Bet

Both boxers have impressive resumés, but I'm siding with the odds-on favorite this time. Vargas has proven to be a versatile combatant that can hang with the best of them. He's finished 61.1% of the 36 opponents he's faced and will likely be able to handle anything that his upcoming opponent dishes out.

As solid as Foster can be, it doesn't change the fact that he's already lost twice in his career with both losses coming by points. Unfortunately for Foster, longer fights have been Vargas' go-to style lately. The Mexican boxer has gone the distance in each of his last eight fights, winning all but one by either majority or unanimous decision.

With FanDuel Sportsbook favoring this fight to go the distance at -290 odds, it's clear that backing Vargas to win by points is the best bet.

Bet: Rey Vargas to Win by Points (-110)
