Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week (July 24th, 2023)

Spence Jr. vs. Crawford: The Fight of the Century – T Mobile Arena, Las vegas, NV (Showtime PPV)

  • When: Saturday, July 22, 2023. 6:00pm ET.

Yoenis Tellez vs. Sergio Garcia

The odds suggest Tellez versus Garcia is going to be a dynamite bout. After studying both fighters’ past performances, we can’t argue.

Garcia, the -147 favorite, is 34-2 with 14 stoppage victories. Garcia’s career was about done after two straight losses, first falling to Sebastian Fundora, and then losing to Tony Harrison. But Garcia bounced back in a big way, recording a 10-round unanimous decision versus Ricardo Sebastian Cabana in his last.

Yoenis Tellez, the slight underdog, is just 5-0. However, Tellez has shown great power, winning 4 of his 5 fights via technical knockout.

Garcia, because of his experience, should be the chalk. Tellez, though, is an up and comer who isn’t ready for a his first loss. Yoenis gets the nod.

Boxing Betting Pick: Yoenis Tellez +106

Isaac Cruz vs. Giovanni Cabrera

Favorite Isaac “Pitbull” Cruz faces a test on Saturday night when he takes on undefeated Giovanni Cabrera. The underdog in this has a stunning 21-0 record.

Ah, but Cabrera has just 7 technical knockout victories. On Saturday, the underdog takes on one of the toughest boxers in any weight class.

Isaac Cruz is 24-2-1 and has knocked out 7 of his opponents. Cruz’s last loss was versus Gervonta Davis, one of the best pound for pound boxers on the planet. The fight versus Davis went the distance. Cruz wins this before the final bell.

Boxing Betting Pick: Isaac Cruz -769

Alexandro Santiago vs. Nonito Donaire // WBC World Bantamweight Title

In the warm-up to the main event, Nonito Donaire throws down against the younger Alexandro Santiago.

Leading up to the fight, we shouldn’t be surprised if Santiago ends up the favorite. The +122 choice is 27-3-5 with 14 stoppage victories. Santiago is on a 3-match winning streak.

Donaire is 42-7. The Filipino Flash’s last 2 losses have come against one of the greatest boxers of all time and the reigning pound for pound best in the world, Nayoa “The Monster” Inoue.

Santiago is a step down for Donaire. But Inoue so thoroughly dispatched of Donaire in the favorite’s last, that Nonito may not be at his best. Throwing money behind Santiago is a decent play.

Boxing Betting Pick: Alexandro Santiago +122

Errol Spence Jr. vs. Terrence Crawford // Undisputed Welterweight Title

Even if you don’t plan on betting Spence Jr. versus Crawford, you should watch the fight. You will learn more about boxing watching these two go at it than one hundred hours of footage of almost any other boxer.

Both Errol and Bud do everything right. Crawford is a master at winning angles, while Spence Jr. uses his footwork to put his opponent in bad positions. Early on, this should be a rather pedestrian affair, as both will try to find the chink in the other’s armor.

Once they discover the chink, though, Spence and Crawford go for it. So in the later rounds, this is going to be exciting for sure. Which world-class boxer gets the win?

Crawford is a freak. However, Terence hasn’t come close to fighting opponents on the level of Spence Jr.’s opponents. Errol may have caught up to Bud’s skill set. We’re backing Errol Spence Jr. to pull off the slight upset.

Boxing Betting Pick: Errol Spence Jr. +113
