Spence Jr. brings some advantages into the fight. For starters, because he’s taller by an inch and a half, which Errol’s jab should be more effective than Crawford’s.

Why Bet on Terence Crawford versus Errol Spence Jr.
Terence “Bud” Crawford 39-0 with 30 KOs
Crawford is the reigning pound for pound king for a reason. He has a knock for winning every angle. He’s also excellent at getting through the high guard that Spence Jr. uses when Errol is trying to fend off attackers.
Crawford gets through his opponents high guard a couple of ways. First, he powers through it by throwing combinations at the guard itself. Second, he forces his opponents to lower the guard by throwing to the open body.
Either way, once Spence Jr. goes into his high guard defense, Crawford will know what to do to break open his opponent’s guard.

Final Betting Analysis: Terence Crawford vs. Errol Spence Jr.
This fight is going to come down to small changes that each have prepared leading up to the fight. If Crawford and Spence Jr. fight exactly like they have in the past, they will lose.
So we must expect both boxers to have added wrinkles during training camp. Spence Jr. has the ability to win this fight.
Errol is an excellent boxer with a fantastic jab, terrific power, and amazing footwork. Also, Errol is against top recent competition. So he has an edge in terms of opponents’ abilities against Crawford.
But Terence is a master adjuster. Crawford can adjust on the fly. By on the fly, we don’t mean in between rounds. We mean Crawford can adjust in the middle of a round and in the middle of a combination.
Crawford’s boxing IQ might be the highest of any fighter’s since Muhammad Ali. That’s saying a lot but based on his fights, it’s likely true. Terence will have an answer for everything Spence does: high guard, low guard, jab, power, whatever.
Not only that, but Crawford throws one of the best swivel jabs, which acts like a hook more than a jab, in the history of the sport. When it comes down to it, Crawford’s incredible ability to switch things up in the middle of a combination, his reaction time and incredible balance overtakes Spence. Terence wins via late TKO or unanimous decision.
