Like White, there have been plenty of people willing to cast doubt of Jake Pauls foray into boxing, however, an unlikely ally appeared this week. Snoop Dogg responded to Dana White’s claims of betting on Ben Askren, claiming he would be willing to wager $2 million on Jake Paul winning.
The 49-year-rapper claimed that Dana White has more than $1 million to wager, and told him to raise it. It appears that Snoop wants a matched-bet with Dana, and instead of placing the bet with online sportsbooks they would place the bet against each other, with both fighters having the same odds (even money).
This would be quite the deal for Snoop Dogg, as he will be getting boosted odds on Jake Paul winning, however, were sure that Dana White would rather take the +200 on Ben Askren with DraftKings rather than the +100 available with Snoop.
