After their first bout ended in a draw, the long-awaited sequel of Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury is about to square off Saturday at the Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Despite opening as a slight +105 underdog, Wilder is currently a favorite at -125 due to the WBC heavyweight champion attracting 67% of the tickets and 74% of the dollars wagered.
Wilder heads into this fight with a near-flawless 42-0-1 record, with 41 of those victories coming via knockout. Many bettors believe that trend will continue against the gargantuan 6’9” Fury, as Wilder winning by KO/TKO/DQ has gotten 30% of the tickets and 43% of the dollars wagered. Some are willing to take it even further—9% of tickets are on Wilder winning in the first round, which is the highest number bet on of any of the knockout round props.
On the other side of the ring, a Fury KO/TKO/DQ has brought in 26% of the tickets, but just 16% of the dollars wagered.
The majority of bettors are also on the fight lasting less than 10.5 rounds, as 86% of the tickets and 61% of the money are on the under. There are those who believe, though, that lightning will strike twice and there will be another 12-round draw between these two incredible fighters. Eyeing a potential 18/1 payout, a tie has drawn in 12% of tickets and 6% of dollars.
