DraftKings Sportsbook Odds/Predictions

Muradov: +165
Borralho: -195

Splits: 62% of handle, 80% of bets on Borralho

Muradov best chance of winning will come from using his 6-foot-3 height and taking the fight from a distance. Borralho is good enough with the takedowns that it’ll be tough for Muradov to execute that plan for three rounds. Once Borralho gets Muradov to the ground, it could just be a matter of time. Borralho wins with a finish late in the first round.
