Heavyweight Title Betting Preview

Finally, the hype is about to mercifully end and the boxing world can get on with answering the biggest question of the past year. 

Who is the better and more worthy champion; Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury? 

In some ways Saturday night’s heavyweight championship bout offers a matchup of opposites.  In Wilder we get the ultimate fighting machine, the epitome of a powerful and reliable knockout artist. In contrast is Fury, who brings the larger than life personality and story, but also the stigma of being an unpredictable wild card.  While there has been a ton of debate about who actually won the last bout there is one thing gamblers can all agree on; the price is right.

Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury Betting Odds Analysis

Regardless of which side one takes, the price will be right.  Many will see Deontay Wilder as a bargain at -110 as he is normally at a significantly higher price.  By contrast Tyson Fury is also a consistently huge chalk and offers a much lower price than what gamblers are used too.  The potential danger for bettors is getting too carried away with whichever side they choose to take. In particular backers of Wilder may want to load up on relatively cheap price.  And while the betting line is always based on public perception the fact remains that most experts also see this matchup as dead even.  

Tale of the Tape

Tyson Fury is 31 years old.  He stands at six feet, nine inches tall with a reach of 85 inches and fights from an orthodox stance.  He is ranked fourth in the world.  Fury is a native of Wilmslow, Cheshire, United Kingdom and resides in Manchester, Lancashire, United Kingdom. 

By contrast Deontay Wilder is 34 years old.  Wilder stands at six feet, seven inches tall with a reach of 83 inches and fights from an orthodox stance.  He is a native of Tuscaloosa, Alabama where he still resides.   Tuscaloosa is best known as the hometown of another well-known powerhouse.  College Football’s Alabama Crimson Tide call Tuscaloosa home.  Second in the world is Wilder’s current ranking.  

A Contrast in Styles

There is no greater or more celebrated knockout artist than Deontay Wilder.  He puts opponents down for the count like a clock.  Gamblers admire his consistency.  Tyson Fury’s volatile personality translates into the ring.  He is much more unpredictable in style although every bit as effective at the payout window.  Some bettors remain bothered that Fury had to quickly relinquish his unification heavyweight titles won in 2015 due to a host of personal issues.  Wilder has never had such problems. 

Wilder vs. Fury I

On December 1, 2018 Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder met at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California for the World Boxing Council heavyweight title.  Wilder was a -170 favorite with Fury at +140 as the dog. By all accounts the fight was a visual as well as a business success.  It also raged with controversy.  Both fighters and their camps firmly believed that they were the true winner.  Yet the bout was called a draw.  Wilder insisted he deserved the win by knocking Fury down in both the ninth and 12th rounds.  Fury claimed victory by stating the fact that he landed far more punches.  Promoters licked their chops and saw the obvious gold mine that a rematch would produce. 

The Pick

Of course, a great case can be made for either side.  The betting line reflects the split opinion of everyone concerned.  At the end of the day expect Wilder to show improved focus.  He will be taking Fury much more seriously this time.  His record as boxing’s premier knockout artist prevails here!
