Haney vs Garcia Betting Preview

Haney can take his time in this bout. We all know how fast Garcia's hands are, but "The Dream" is famous for his defense. I'll bet "KingRy" has trouble putting his mitts on the champ, especially early. 

The champ has evolved over the years, too. In the early days, Haney was about jabs and movement. Now, he sits on his punches a little more. Garcia got exposed in his fight vs Gervonta Davis as someone vulnerable to big shots.

Garcia's quickness is menacing, but Haney will have a size, reach, and odds advantage heading into this superfight.

Devin Haney vs Ryan Garcia Pick

Haney's last eight wins have come via the judges' scorecards. It's been five years since he stopped an opponent in the squared circle.

Garcia will push the pace and look for Haney to tumble out of his rhythm, but I don't foresee the champ biting. If it ain't broke...

Pick: Haney by decision (-160)
