Foster vs Hernandez odds predict a close fight between O’Shaquie Foster and Eduardo Hernandez.
The WBC World Super Featherweight title is up for grabs in Cancun, where Hernandez fights in front of his home crowd.
However, we expect most bettors to have Foster picked to win as the favorite at -155.
Foster Riding Long Winning Streak
The 30-year-old American hasn’t lost since 2016, which is a long time for a boxer of his level.
He lost a split decision to Rolando Chinea, but since then he has added 10 consecutive victories to his record.
The most recent was a unanimous decision victory against Rey Vargas, which is an elite win, and it’s why Foster vs Hernandez odds have him favored to win.
The schedule of boxing hasn’t been busy for Foster, who has had only four fights since 2019. However, Covid 19 got in the way of the current champion.
He’s the second-ranked super featherweight fighter in the world, and although he’s not a household name, he’s going about his business quickly.
He is surprised Hernandez took the fight, according to the latest boxing news.
“I’m definitely surprised that Rocky came around to this fight,” Foster said. “His name came across a couple of years ago. We were both signed to Probellum at the same time. We asked them about making that fight before I won the title.
“He’s the mandatory, so I guess it was either take this fight or give up that spot. But he took the fight, so it’s cool. I’m surprised but I’m glad we’re here.”
The -155 favorite should be tough to beat.
Hernandez With Upset Claims
He might be ranked 41st in the world, but Hernandez has a chance to win at +125 with Foster vs Hernandez odds.
The 25-year-old hasn’t been beating top-level boxers, but he’s 34-1 with 31 wins coming by knockout, so he possesses the power needed to knock out Foster.
Our worry is that he doesn’t have enough experience facing better boxers. His most recent win was a third round knockout of a 20-7-4 fighter, which was impressive, but his opponent was a no name.
His toughest fight was easily against Roger Gutierrez in 2019. He lost by knockout in the first round, so that shouldn’t give bettors any confidence.
Losing after just three minutes is tough to come back from, and although he hasn’t lost since, he hasn’t fought anyone good since.
There is a reason for that, but he has earned himself another chance at the big time. Facing Foster for the title could be a step too far though.
Value with Foster
We thought Foster would be much shorter at the sportsbook, so we’re jumping on the -155 available.
Bettors should have expected something about -300 for the better fighter, who could end the fight in the middle rounds.
Hernandez hasn’t fought anyone of note for years, and he could be in for a rude awakening on Saturday.
Our boxing bet is with Foster, and we’re highly confident.
