Betting odds for the upcoming boxing match between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz. Set to take place on August 5th in Dallas at the American Airlines Center, this eight-round contest has already brought some excitement and controversy. Paul has opened as the favorite, calculated at a -275 chance of victory, while Diaz is considered a significant underdog at +215.
This means that a bet of $100 on Paul would provide a return of $36.36, whereas the same bet on Diaz would yield $215. With these numbers, Paul has a 73 percent chance of winning, while Diaz only has a 32 percent chance.
This fight comes after Paul’s first professional defeat just two months ago, when he lost to rival Tommy Fury in a split decision call. After the loss, Paul initially expressed interest in a rematch, which was reportedly possible due to his contract with Fury.
However, he then called out Diaz after the two had an altercation last October, which involved security teams at a boxing match between Paul and ex-UFC champ Anderson Silva. Diaz had initially appeared uninterested in fighting Paul after the YouTube star’s loss to Fury, but now they are set to meet in the ring.
Despite his underdog status, Diaz appears to be confident in his abilities, having stated that he plans to return to the UFC after the match. It will be interesting to see how this fight plays out, with many anticipating Diaz’s fans to react strongly if he loses.
Regardless of the outcome, this boxing match is already causing a lot of buzz and will be carried on pay-per-view by DAZN.
