By Karl Freitag

Oddsmakers view all three of Saturday night’s featured bouts at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center as lopsided encounters. WBC/WBA super lightweight champion Danny Garcia is a 34 to 1 favorite (-3400) to defeat Rod Salka (+1700) in the non-title main event, IBF jr welterweight champion Lamont Peterson is a 25 to 1 pick (-2500) to defeat Edgar Santana (+1400), and in the closest matchup, Daniel Jacobs is a 7 to 1 favorite (-700) to win a version of the WBA middleweight title against Jarrod Fletcher (+500).

The over/under propositions, however, are all close and fluctuating. Currently, the over/under for Garcia-Salka is 7.5 rounds with over at -165 and under at +135. The over/under for Peterson-Santana is 10.5 rounds with over at -105 and under at -125. Finally, the over/under for Jacobs-Fletcher is 8.5 rounds with over at +115 and under at -145.
