CLEVELAND – Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley will fight on Sunday as Paul takes another step up in competing as a professional boxer. Prop bets are available for the upcoming bout.
Betting The Round Total
Jake Paul has managed quick work with his previous three opponents by finishing AnEsonGib, Nate Robinson, and Ben Askren in either the first or second round. Yet, regulated sports betting sites have set the total for his upcoming bout against Tyron Woodley at a higher number.
Paul vs Woodley Total Rounds
- OVER 3.5 -125
- UNDER 3.5 -115
Since the round total is set in a spot that Paul has never seen before combined with the fact that the OVER is favored, it’s fair to assume that sportsbooks are trying to tell sports bettors something. Tyron Woodley has only been knocked out twice in his UFC career, one of which came by a rib injury and the other dating all the way back to 2012.
Fight To Go The Distance
The fight is only scheduled for eight rounds and since Paul has never entered the third round of a fight, he may gas out if the fight doesn’t end early on. Obviously, fighting in the UFC is much different than in a boxing ring, but 46% of Woodley’s fights went the distance in his MMA career.
Will The Fight Go The Distance
- Yes +475
- No -900
This isn’t technically the best bet for the matchup but given the price tag of (+475), it may be worth looking into in a lesser fashion, as it very well could be more likely than the odds suggest.
Tyron Woodley To Win By KO
Sure, Woodley looked awful in his final four fights in the UFC before getting cut by the promotion but he was fighting the top level of competition in the world. Paul isn’t a pushover, yet theoretically, this should be the easiest fight Woodley has had in quite some time.
At 39-years-old it’s possible that Woodley has regressed to the point of no longer being competitive in any way but to rule him out would be outlandish. With that said, those betting on boxing should always be looking through sportsbooks to make sure the odds are worth betting on in comparison to other listed options.
Method Of Victory Odds
- J. Paul By KO, TKO Or DQ -130
- T. Woodley By KO, TKO Or DQ +170
- J. Paul By Decision Or Technical Decision +700
- T. Woodley By Decision Or Technical Decision +1200
- Draw Or Technical Draw +1400
Since Woodley is (+160) on the moneyline, it may be better to just bet Woodley’s straight up rather than by a knockout or disqualification. The fight begins at 7:00 p.m. EST on Sunday and will be broadcast through Showtime’s PPV.
