Top Betting Pick for Beterbiev vs Smith Jr.
Artur Beterbiev has knocked out everyone he’s faced for a reason. His elusive fients and power jab are similar to the kind of boxing Bivol used to win the decision over Smith. Smith is a gritty fighter that moves forward often, which is exactly the kind of boxer not to be against Beterbiev. Bet the money line for parlay picks and the TKO prop for a -300 payout.
Top Pick for Fans of Joe Smith Jr.
If you think Joe can get it done, the Over 3.5 rounds prop bet pays out more than the Beterbiev money line and matches the majority of the last ten fights for both fighters. If Joe gets it done, it will be the hardest fought decision of his career.

Comparing the Fighters Trainers
Joe’s coach Capobianco was responsible for several olympians in the 90s but is now less relevant to anyone but Joe. Marc Ramsay worked with Jean Pascal, Eleider Alvarez and David Lemieux. It would seem Beterbiev has the training advantage, but Smith was able to defeat his training partner Elieder Alvarez in nine rounds.

Beterbeiv has a bias toward late finishes against better boxers. His mid ranging finishing is common, making the over 2.5 Rounds prop safe, but not impenetrable. I don’t see a Smith Decision win, so betting the Fight Goes to decision, No prop bet covers you for any highly unlikely Smith Jr. Upset knockouts.

The Beterbiev late knockout is a +100 bet, paying out triple his -300 knockout prop. If we’re picking a round betting prop, we’d pick that one. However, Artur has five of his last ten TKOs prior to the sixth round, so it’s not worth the risk.
Beterbiev vs Smith Jr. Boxing Breakdown
Beterbiev is the master of slight feints. They’re often so minor that onlookers can’t appreciate his style. Here, Beterbiev utilizes his jab as an offensive tool. One of the more dangerous issues in dealing with Artur is the power carried by every shot he lands.

Let’s compare that to the often back and forth work of Joe Smith jr. Smith will march forward with hands in front, and is praised for his grit. Bivol was able to land the jab early, punches that Smith will need to deal with in order to beat Artur. We see Beterbiev winning these exchanges, and ultimately hitting far too hard for Smith.
1st round of Bivol vs Joe smith Jr… well as much as I could post in 1 video #boxing (this is how Bivol needs to fight Canelo) stay on the outside and when pressured, throw combos on the inside and get out. You can’t stay inside to long against Canelo #CaneloBivol pic.twitter.com/Gj91uYgroP

Beterbiev’s ability to pour it on is stunning. Here, he landed two left hooks that set off a chain of some forty punches landed. His opponents will often not look rocked, but Artur can see the changes in their behavior and he knows he can put them away.
