DraftKings Sportsbook Odds/Predictions
Splits: 78% of handle, 87% of bets on Pyfer
Pyfer being put in a tricky position. He is expected to steamroll Amedovski, but the guys that have stopped Amedovski took advantage of his issues with wrestling. Pyfer isn’t going to use that route. He’s going to try to come in and overwhelm Amedovski. It’s very possible that Amedovski can catch Pyfer being a little reckless, but otherwise this is Pyfer win by first-round knockout.
