Under 3.5 Rounds (-125)
The going sentiment here is that Woodley is taking this bout far more seriously then Ben Askren did, and won’t look like he woke up after an all-nighter at his local bar. That being said, Woodley is giving up so many physical advantages here that Paul stopping him before the 3.5 round mark makes this a good pick.
Jake Paul rounds 1-2 (+300)
Depending on how soon Paul decides to go after Woodley, or if Woodley does show some spark right off the bat, there is a good chance Woodley will get out of the first round. Paul might feel Woodley out so that in the second round he can begin to put his punches together. Bettors who want to bet the early KO can take the safer route here for a +300 pickup.
Woodley moneyline (+155)
All things considered, Woodley is a live dog here. While he has quite a few glaring disadvantages, he’s been in with some top fighters in the UFC, including notable strikers like Stephen Thompson, Darren Till and Kamaru Usman. Giving Woodley the benefit of the doubt, we feel the moneyline pick is the best way to go if you decide to side with the underdog.
Paul KO in round 2 (+650)
In our preview of the bout, we said Paul’s size and Woodley’s steep decline would result in Paul knocking out another ex-MMA fighter. Woodley is giving up four inches in height and fighting almost 20 pounds heavier than he’s used to.
While Woodley should make it out of the first round, Paul isn’t going to have much trouble finding him and should drop him with the first big 1-2 he lands, with a stoppage soon to follow. Going with Paul with a second round KO is our best pick of the night, and it comes with a hefty +650 payout when it happens.
