Mike Tyson vs. Jake Paul sees massive movement in betting lines as sparring videos gain momentum

The betting public is all-in on Mike Tyson vs. Jake Paul ahead of the duo’s fight on July 24.

After starting out as a big underdog, BetUS money has flowed into the soon-to-be 58-year-old boxing legend as he prepares to step into the ring against 27-year-old Paul.

“The line continues to move as the betting public shows incredibly strong support for Tyson,” said Tim Williams, BetUS director of public relations. “Already, Tyson is by far the oddsmakers’ favorite.”

Tyson opened at +225 to win the fight when BetUS opened betting in early March.

As of Friday afternoon, Tyson was down to +105 –– a near even-odds underdog.

Paul, on the other hand, went from -300 favorite to just -135 favorite over the same period.

“If the trend continues, we could see the line completely reversed, with Tyson becoming the favorite heading into the match on July 20,” Williams said.

“Tyson attracts the lion’s share of bets, so we should continue to see that line move in an effort to attract bets on Paul and balance the book before July,” he added.

“Tyson simply has too much support, and if he wins, we will likely take a significant loss.”

The fight will be streamed on Netflix and will take place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Before the fight, Tyson saw numerous videos of fighting and showing serious punching power, as well as sprinting, which shocked some fans on social media in all the wrong ways.

Still, boxing isn’t a sprint, and his former strength and conditioning coach isn’t concerned.

Tyson last fought on November 28, 2020, when he boxed Roy Jones Jr. to a draw in an exhibition.
