    That's surprising considering how much bigger Spence is. Thats still a pretty big underdog. But perhaps this a reflection of Spences poor resume?

    I was expecting the odds to be at least 10 to 1.

    I'm not a gambling man, but 4 to 1 odds seems like smart money to put on Spence.

    Garcia has virtually no chance, the size difference is too much and Spence is very good fighter.

    Odds should be 15 to 1 in favor of Spence.

    This fight is rather like Gamboa vs. Crawford, and the result will be similar with the smaller man taking a beating.

    But Gamboa was not only competitve, but dominatng the first half and having Crawfish out of his feet several times. While Garcia hits possible harder and has a very different style than "El Cyclon", as he is a great counter-boxer.

    Time to pawn the family heirlooms and go all-in. This is the best spot in boxing since the legendary Floyd/Conor debacle and similarly priced, Spence will crush lil Miguel.

    Spence is going to Clubber Garcia. Kangaroo Jack is better than Beatendown Brook so it could be interesting

    I have no idea how odds work. Can someone tell me how much you win if you put £1 on Garcia? And how much you win if you put £1 on Spence to win?

    4-1 for Spence. If you bet 4 bucks on Garcia, you win $11.

    In the US, Spence is -450 and Garcia is +310 so you have to put $450 on Spence to win $100 and you win $310 if you bet $100 on Mikey and he wins.

    I don’t know what the odds are but 4/1 would mean for every 4 pound ya put on ya would get 1 back (plus your stake back)
    So put 4 on at 4/1 you get 5(plus 1 pound stake back)
    Put 16 on at 4/1 you get 20(plus 16 pound stake back)
