Splits: 77% of handle, 87% of bets on Brown
Brown has been hot of late and holds an undeniable advantage in height and reach. He has shown promise and a win over a veteran like Trinaldo will boost his resume. Trinaldo is no slouch and will come with energy winning his last two contests. Brown is streaking and it’s unlikely he falls to Trinaldo. Brown by KO or TKO along with moneyline is the best play here.
