Venue: Amalie Arena
After Tommy Fury’s frustrating withdrawal through illness, Jake Paul will now have an intriguing rematch with Tyron Woodley in Tampa, Florida.
Paul won their first bout via a split decision but was troubled at times by the punching power of ex-UFC welterweight champion Woodley.
Even so, the YouTube sensation was convincing enough to make 1.44 for him to prevail again hard to oppose as our first Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley prediction.
Jake Paul Betting Odds
Older brother Logan Paul paved the way for Jake’s foray into the fight game with two high-profile bouts against British celebrity KSI.
The 24-year-old stopped KSI’s sibling Deji Olatunji on the undercard of their first encounter, in what was classed as an amateur contest.
When stepping into the pro arena, Paul knocked out fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib and then basketball player Nate Robinson.
He enjoyed another quick victory versus former MMA fighter Ben Askren before outpointing Woodley in Cleveland at the end of August.
Paul made good use of his height and reach advantage to take the first three rounds on the back of a neat jab.
Woodley did rock him in the fourth and enjoyed some more success in the fifth but couldn’t get close enough to secure the knockout he needed in the final three rounds.
Two judges had Paul in front by scores of 78-74 and 77-75, whereas the other official somewhat strangely went for Woodley by two points.
Our verdict was that the social media star comfortably deserved his success and Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley odds.
Tyron Woodley Betting Odds
At the age of 39, Woodley is 15 years older than Paul, but still looked in great physical shape for their Ohio clash.
During an excellent MMA career, he claimed the UFC welterweight title in July 2016 when knocking out Robbie Lawlor in round one.
Woodley forced Liverpool’s Darren Till to tap out in his fourth defence but then surrendered his crown to Kamaru Usman on points in March 2019.
Three more consecutive defeats followed before The Chosen One returned to the spotlight when taking on Paul.
The striking power was still there in that contest, but Woodley’s long, right-hand punches were generally easy to see coming.
Although a shoulder injury may have hampered his cause, the fact still remains that Woodley lacked the head movement to avoid many of Paul’s jabs.
Another big pay-day will be well received with Christmas coming up, but if Paul can stay focused, he should secure a smooth success.
For those who fear wayward scoring from more than one judge this time, though, 1.8 for the fight to go the full distance of eight rounds again is added to our Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley betting tips.
