Berlanga vs. Nicholson: Tale of the tape

Edgar Berlanga

Berlanga (16-0, 16 KOs) has not only won each of his first 16 professional bouts by knockout, but he has won each of the fights in the first round. That’s an amazing streak. He fought three times in 2020 in the Top Rank bubble, thrashing Eric Moon, Lanell Bellows and Ulises Sierra. This will be his first fight in front of a live crowd since Dec. 14, 2019.

Demond Nicholson

Nicholson (23-3-1, 20 KOs) heads in on a five-bout win streak, going the distance in each of his past two fights. He picked up the split-decision win against Mike Guy Feb. 28, 2020, his only fight since Oct. 18, 2019. Each of his past five fights have been in his home state of Maryland, so this will be a little out of his comfort zone.

Berlanga vs. Nicholson: Odds, predictions and picks

Berlanga (-5000) will cost you 50 times your potential return, or, in other words, a $100 wager will return a net profit of $2.

The only question here isn’t whether Berlanga will win, it’s when. You can’t even play Berlanga by KO/TKO/Technical Decision or DQ (-2000) for method of victory, as even that’s too expensive.

The best bet(s) here will be to focus on a two-round block, and not Round 1. Berlanga (-125) will cost you money. Focus on BERLANGA IN ROUND 2 (+300) and BERLANGA IN ROUND 3 (+800). If the fight gets past Round 1, you’re a winner if he finishes in Rounds 2 or 3. In fact, if you bet a several-round block, it’s the only way to make money in this fight without a ton of risk. You just need Berlanga to do something he has never done – go into Round 2 or beyond.
