Betting odds at Bovada have Terence Crawford as a (-1400) favorite with Jeff Horn as a (+700) underdog.
Oddsmakers have Crawford as a considerable 14-to-1 favorite over Jeff Horn, who won his world title in somewhat improbable fashion against Manny Pacquiao.
Crawford (32-0-0) will hold a massive advantage in experience, skill, and ring intelligence over the relatively inexperienced Jeff Horn (18-0-1). Prior to the win over Pacquiao, Horn had only fought domestic competition in Australia.
The 5'9" Horn was able to his size advantage to bully the much smaller 5'5" Manny Pacquiao around the ring. Being a natural welterweight means Horn will be the bigger man when he faces Crawford.
Though Horn will be the bigger fighter, the 5'8" Crawford will actually hold a reach advantage in this matchup. This is an important factor because Crawford is a master of range and uses this to keep his opponents at the end of his punches. Horn will likely take a lot of damage as he tries to get on the inside.
Finally, this will be the first fight for Horn in America, and you can make an argument the home crowd (and judging) in Australia is what propelled him to his upset of Pacquiao. So, this is why the Oddsmakers consider Horn as the clear underdog in this fight.
