Tips on how to Wager Kambosos-Haney

Previous historical past and the chances are saying this battle will go the complete 12 rounds on Saturday night time. So what’s one of the simplest ways to revenue from the bout? One factor to remember is Kambosos is preventing in entrance of his residence crowd in Melbourne. In what ought to be a razor shut battle, I see worth on Kambosos +280 to win on factors over the extra highly-regarded Haney. 

Whereas not a heavy puncher, Kambosos applies a number of stress. Kambosos beat Lopez by cut up determination as a result of he dominated late, out-landing his opponent 41-16 within the closing two rounds. The Australian will doubtless power the difficulty on this matchup and in entrance of 60,000 screaming followers, that may sway the judges in an in depth battle. 

One other factor to think about is Haney can be with out two key members in his nook. Invoice Haney, Devin’s father and lead coach, was denied entry into Australia, as was coach Ben Davison. Once more, in a good battle, Haney not having his father current to provide recommendation might make a  distinction.  

Haney is the extra expert fighter with a three-inch attain benefit. There’s definitely a situation the place Haney out-boxes Kambosos for 12 rounds and earns a call victory. Kambosos has essentially the most spectacular win of the 2 over Lopez. General although, Haney has confronted harder competitors in his profession with victories over Yuriorkis Gamboa, Jorge Linares and Joseph Diaz.

Nonetheless, there are simply too many variables that time to Kambosos successful a call and at +280, that’s the wager I like most. I additionally don’t hate betting on a draw. All the things suggests this can be a extremely aggressive battle that goes the gap. Throwing a couple of dollars on it to finish in a draw at +1600 isn’t a nasty concept both.
