Danny Garcia is expected by oddsmakers to leave Houston with the WBC junior welterweight title and a win over Mexican legend Erik Morales tonight, live on HBO at 10:15 p.m. EDT. Here are the current odds:

Sportsbook Morales Garcia
5Dimes +280
-340
Bovada +260
-340
SBG Global +270
-330


Morales came in overweight yesterday and lost his title on the scales, which we'll have more on at Noon EDT today. Needless to say, it's a bit of a downer, but in terms of the fight itself, this has to be figured to even more strongly favor Garcia.

Sure, Morales would be worse off if he'd killed himself to lose the two pounds, but he's never really been a junior welterweight anyway, and he was already a bit of an underdog here. Now I think Garcia has to be considered a firm favorite, if he's even close to as good as his prospect push.

The HBO co-feature is an exciting junior middleweight scrap between James Kirkland and Carlos Molina. I haven't seen any odds listed anywhere, but picks have been about 50-50 that I've seen. Some feel, as I do, that Kirkland is just too strong. Others feel that if Nobuhiro Ishida can whoop Kirkland, surely Molina can. Both, I believe, are fair enough. It's a really good fight, well-matched and competitive.
