Splits: 72% of handle, 45% of bets on Cutelaba
A little surprised to see Cutelaba as a favorite here, as Boser has four more wins and seems to be the better all-around fighter of late. Lean toward Bosner, as Cutelaba’s guard has been exposed in his last three losses, dropping two by submission and one by TKO. Give me the underdog Boser at +110 and his odds of winning by decision are +350.
