Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren Odds: Oddsmakers Disagree On Fight Odds

The best feeling in sports gambling is obviously winning a bet. But, right after the thrill of winning comes knowing that you got the best price on a side where lots of shorter prices exist. Well, this weekend’s Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren fight is a prime example of how valuable shopping for the best odds can be when betting on sports.

This can be the case when you have fights that feature participants that don’t have much experience, as is the case for Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren.

Paul has just two professional fights under his belt, neither of which have come against actual boxers. As for Askren, he’s never fought in a professional boxing match but does have 22 MMA bouts to his name.

As of Monday morning, there are some wildly different prices available for the April 17 Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren fight. So where should you be betting? Let’s take a look.

Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren Betting

As we all know, OddsChecker is your place to find all the very best odds for every single bet around. That’s even more apparent for Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren.

If you plan on betting on Jake Paul to beat Ben Askren, the very best odds out there are -120, available at DraftKings right now. So, in order to win $100, you need to wager $120. At -120, a $200 wager would win you $166.67.

That’s a pretty nice return, but there are books out there offering odds as short as -150 for the YouTube star. At -150, that same $200 bet on Jake Paul to beat Ben Askren would win you $133.33 instead.

The same remains true for Askren as well. The former MMA superstar comes into Saturday’s fight as the underdog in most places. His best odds currently sit at +125 at Borgata, but he’s as short as -103 in some places.

At +125, a $200 bet wins you $250 on Askren. But, if you were to take him at -103, that same bet would win you $194.17.
