Jessica McCaskill Betting Preview

McCaskill, a former undisputed welterweight champion, suffered a unanimous decision loss to Chantelle Cameron in her attempt to become undisputed at 140 pounds last November. This loss snapped her previous seven-fight winning streak dating back to 2017.

She is returning to welterweight to defend her remaining WBC and WBA titles against Ryan, who currently holds the WBO belt she won in April by defeating Marie Pier Houle. Recent momentum could have an impact here, as both fighters are coming off of different scenarios.

She is currently considered as the second best female welterweight boxer in the world and the second best in the United States. She has an opportunity to put any doubt of her skills to rest. She has competed in 15 bouts that have spanned over 101 rounds and has a knockout rate of 41.67 percent.

Sandy Ryan Betting Preview

Ryan has the WBO belt and is aiming to keep a hold of it. She is currently on a three-fight winning streak since August of last year, which have all been unanimous decisions.

Her recent performances have dramatically changed how fans and bettors are looking at her. She had a few easier wins to start her career, but has really ranked up production.

She is currently ranked as the fourth best welterweight female boxer in the world and is second best in the United Kingdom. She has an appealing opportunity to improve her resume, which would be the biggest test of her career. She has been a part of seven bouts over 53 rounds with a knockout percentage at 33.33.

Game Odds, Series Trends and Free Pick

MyBookie has their odds showing that this battle will be a coin flip, as both fighters are evenly matched. However, market trends show that Jessica McCaskill has the slightest edge to win here.

  • Sandy Ryan: -114

  • Jessica McCaskill: -120

Ryan will need to keep the pace in her favor and not allow McCaskill to just pick her apart. Neither one seems like they are going to run away with this, as both are arguably evenly matched and have had recent defeats.

McCaskill has been doing this for a while and you have to wonder how much longer she will be able to keep this up. At 39, retirement rumors have been floating around. Overall, look for Ryan to win by decision if she can come out strong to start.
