Default Carl Froch will stop Reid, right?

Reid, wily as he is, is too old (shot) now to hang on for a points loss, no?

It will have a massive negative effect if Froch doesnt, therefore I expect him to try and blow Reid out early

Yes, he should and he better.

The odds on under 8.5 rounds are at even and too good not to take.

Reid should take him 12, but Froch on points by a clear margin

Froch is lazy and open to hit. He has the skills to outbox and KO Reid but Froch's defence is garbage because he doesn't really care about defence as though it is beneath him so I think anything could happen, Reid could get lucky

I'd probably ahve to watch Reid - Lacy again to decide for sure.

Reid has probably developed into an innate loser of a boxer now.

But Froch score most of his KOs by hitting opponents who foolishly walk towards him and onto a well timed uppercut. Froch doesn't strike me as being someone capable of going hunting for a fighter.

Reid as shot as he is, won't simply walk into shots, he should be better than that. Unless Froch altered his style and upped his workrate I see no reason why Reid cannot last 12 rounds.
