Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley Odds: 57.4% Chance Paul Beats Woodley
Jake Paul is slowly, but surely, improving the competition he faces in the boxing ring, and his next fight will be by far his biggest challenge to date, as is apparent by the latest Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds.
Paul has been favored in every single one of his professional boxing matches, but with an opponent like Woodley, who was once considered one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world, one would expect Paul to be the underdog. But, the latest Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds give Paul a 57.4% chance of staying undefeated and winning.
There were rumblings that Paul’s last opponent, Ben Askren, didn’t take the fight seriously, showing up visibly out of shape, getting knocked out and leaving the ring with his wife in hand, smiling. But, it seems like Woodley is actually coming to the ring to put a hurting on Jake Paul, something no one has been able to do yet.
We’ll take a look at Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds, fight history and betting trends ahead of their fight later this year.
As mentioned previously, Jake Paul has never been an underdog in a fight, and that’s still the case here. There were some crazy odds movements prior to the Ben Askren fight. One day Paul would be a massive favorite and the next the odds would be close to even, but he was always the favorite.
Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds are no different as Paul is a -135 favorite to beat Tyron Woodley during their fight on August 28. At -135, Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds give the YouTuber a 57.4% implied probability of winning.
Jake Paul, boxing the former UFC welterweight champion of the world, is given a better-than-even chance to win.
Now, Woodley isn’t necessarily known for his striking. He’s a NCAA Division I wrestler from Missouri that grappled his way to the top of the UFC. But, he has seven KO wins in his MMA career. So, it’s a little shocking to see him at +105, meaning Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds imply a 48.8% chance he wins.

Who Is Tyron Woodley?
Those looking for Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds may not be that familiar with Woodley’s body of work, so we’re here to break it all down.
Tyron Woodley wrestled in college for Division I University of Missouri. He was a two-time All-American and an individual Big-12 Champion.
He fought two professional MMA fights before signing with Strikeforce and going 8-1 at the company before moving to UFC and fighting at UFC 156 in his first ever bout with the company.
Woodley, in his first 12 UFC fights, went 9-2-1 and eventually earned the UFC welterweight title and a place among one of the best fighters in the company. But, in 2019 Tyron Woodley lost his title to Kamaru Usman and he’s since lost four straight fights leading up to his fight with Jake Paul, which might explain why he’s the underdog according to Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley Odds.
Jake Paul Fight History
Most people know who Jake Paul is. He’s the uber-popular YouTuber and younger brother of Floyd Mayweather’s most recent opponent, Logan Paul. Originally, Jake Paul’s boxing career was seen as a get-rich quick scheme. But, he swears he’s taking it seriously and the evidence seems to side with him. So, as a somewhat pure striker going against a wrestler, it sort of makes sense why Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley odds favor the YouTuber.
Jake Paul has fought in three professional fights, winning each by KO or TKO. Paul’s first ever professional boxing match came against fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib and ended with Paul flattening his opponent in the first round.
Jake Paul’s second ever fight was his longest, but also ended the most abruptly as he knocked out former NBA player Nate Robinson in the second round with a punch that immediately went viral.
His third and most recent fight against Ben Askren was seen by some as a joke as Askren basically never threw a punch and ate hook for a quick pay check. So, while he’s undefeated, we still don’t exactly know what Jake Paul has to offer in the boxing ring.
