Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley Odds, Predictions & Betting Preview

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley Odds, Predictions & Betting Preview

Jake Paul has an almost otherworldly ability to draw attention. For his next trick, the YouTube-sensation-turned-boxer will run it back with former UFC Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley after his planned bout with Tommy Fury fell through.

The Paul-Woodley rematch is now set for Dec. 18 in Tampa after Fury – brother of two-time heavyweight champion Tyson Fury – reportedly suffered broken ribs in training camp. Fury would have been Paul’s most legitimate opponent to date as an actual professional boxer with a 7-0 record. That doesn’t mean there aren’t boxing betting markets for the fight.

Jake Paul vs. Tyrone Woodley II Betting Odds

Paul is now a -275 favorite in three-way odds at BetMGM for the rematch. Woodley is a +225 underdog, while the odds for a draw are +1600. For two-way betting, Paul is a -260 favorite at DraftKings and Woodley is a +210 underdog. Not every operator has odds posted for the fight.

Betting apps may offer more markets as the fight draws nearer.

Paul closed as a -200 favorite at sportsbooks for the first fight back in August, which he won via split decision. It was the first boxing match for Woodley, one of the all-time great UFC welterweights who is 15 years older than Paul.

That victory allowed some to entertain the fact that Paul is serious about boxing. The technical skills were relatively impressive and he more than held his own against the MMA veteran. Woodley’s lack of traditional boxing experience was apparent, and he lost the fight on two of three judges’ scorecards – one scoring it 77-75 Paul and the other 78-74 Paul. The third judge had it 77-75 Woodley.

The rematch came together quickly after the Fury fight was called off. Paul will almost certainly drum up tons of attention and hype – at betting sites and on social media - with the usual antics and soundbites. For now, that’s still what Paul does best. Maybe that will change one day if he can defeat Woodley a second time and move up to fighting legitimate pro boxers.

Jake Paul vs Tyrone Woodley Prediction

We’ll admit that Paul seems to know what he’s doing in the ring and has held his own better than expected against retired MMA fighters. In this case, Woodley is also stepping in on short notice. He claims to have been in camps since October preparing for a possible rematch, but it’s different without a set fight on the schedule and one should only believe roughly 10% of what they hear from fighters and their camps in these situations.

Also keep in mind that Paul is and has always been in total control here in terms of dates, venues, promotions, rules, terms, opponents, etc. This is a boxing fantasy of his own creation, and we don’t expect it to turn into a nightmare against the aging Woodley. Somehow, someway, Paul will get his hand raised again in the rematch.
