Miguel Cotto vs Daniel Geale Vegas Odds have Cotto as the -650 betting favorite with 65% of Fight Picks on Cotto to win. The Puerto Rican icon Cotto, 39-4, 32 KO’s, is coming off a long 1-year layoff after destroying Sergio Martinez via 10th round knockout. Geale, 31-3 16 KO’s, rebounded from a KO loss to Gennady Golovkin to win a 12-round decision over fringe Australian contender Jarrod Fletcher. Can the awkward Geale make the legend Cotto feel ring rust after his hiatus? Our Fight Picks sharps broke down the W.B.C. Jr. middleweight title bout. Miguel Cotto vs Daniel Geale Vegas Odds have Geale as a +400 betting underdog (Bet $1000 to win $4000) at SPORTSBOOK.ag 

Fight Picks Analysis: Cotto will have advantages in power, speed, defense, chin and confidence. Geale is a good boxer/puncher type with solid overall skill but the future Hall-Of-Famer Cotto is in another class. The veteran Geale could make things interesting in the early frames while the slow starting Cotto gets warmed up and shakes off some cobwebs. Cotto’s strength, pressure and thudding bodyshots should begin to break down Geale around the 7th round. Miguel Cotto vs Daniel Geale Vegas Odds Over/Under is at 8.5 Rounds at SPORTSBOOK.ag 

Cotto can be outboxed as Austin Trout proved a few years back so laying -600 moneyline is rich, even against a limited opponent like Geale. Cotto’s superior technique however will be too much for the cagey Geale to overcome. Bet Cotto to win by knockout the day of the fight when the betting propositions are released by the bookies.
