Stay tuned for my predictions and best bets for Eubank vs. Morrison.
Who Wins Between Eubank and Morrison?
- Chris Eubank Jr. by KO/TKO
I’m predicting a stoppage win for Eubank on Saturday night.
Although I’ve never been the biggest fan of “Junior,” he is a comfortable level above Morrison. In fact, you could say that this is a bit of a mismatch.
I explain my thoughts in detail, a little further down. But let’s look at the odds and best bets for Eubank-Morrison before I dissect my predictions for Eubank-Morrison.
Latest Odds for Eubank vs. Morrison
The odds for Chris Eubank Jr. to beat Marcus Morrison don’t exactly make my pulse race.
I’m not sure there will be many bettors keen to get on such a short price. But there are better odds available in the Eubank vs. Morrison prop bets markets, and I’ll be looking at them in the next section.
If you’re backing Morrison to beat Eubank, you’ll find a much better prospect where the odds are concerned.
Still, I can’t see any way the Manchester-native gets the win in his hometown. That’s reflected in my betting tips and the bets for Eubank vs. Morrison that I’ll be placing on the night.
Best Bets for Eubank vs. Morrison
In line with my prediction for Eubank vs. Morrison, a win for the former by stoppage is probably the safest bet.
Choosing him to win by KO/TKO cuts those odds down nicely. I expect Eubank, who is being trained by Roy Jones Jr., to be far too fast and busy for his man to last the full twelve.
We haven’t seen Eubank in there since late 2019, and he’ll be keen to make a big impression in his return to the ring. I think he will blast Morrison away under 5.5 rounds, making this a solid bet.
And my final Eubank bet for Saturday night is that he gets the job done in the third. Just as he did with JJ McDonagh in Saudi Arabia in 2018, Eubank will chop him down before the first quarter of the bout has passed.
Why Eubank Beats Morrison
In all fairness, this is a blatant mismatch.
As I pointed out earlier, I’m not Eubank’s biggest fan. He has too many holes in his game to establish himself among the big boys at 160 or 168, and I don’t see him winning a genuine world title at either weight.
This is a tune-up fight, sure, but it’s pretty embarrassing. I mean, Morrison is a decent fighter, but he’s not on Jr’s level. After all, Morrison has fought some dreadful opponents in recent times. In fact, the records of the last seven men to share a ring with the Manc are 5-69-1, 12-10-1, 29-3-0, 5-50-0, 6-10-1, 5-42-0, 3-31-0.
Sure, Morrison earned a good win over Emanuele Blandamura in 2019. But other than that, his record is abysmal. It’s not that much of a push to suggest that you would find a better caliber of opponents at your local taxi stand.
Eubank holds the cards in every department and will make very light work of Morrison. If he doesn’t, he can kiss any dreams he has of meeting Golovkin or Canelo Alvarez inside the ropes goodbye.
