KSI is slightly favored to win a boxing match vs. Logan Paul


The Logan Paul vs. KSI boxing match isn’t yet official. But that hasn’t stopped at least one online betting website to create odds on the potential fight.

And Sky Bet has made KSI the slight betting favorite.

According to Sky Bet, KSI is a 4/6 favorite, while Paul is a very slight 5/4 underdog. The odds of a draw occurring in the match have been set at 10/1. As Metro points out, KSI would be an even bigger favorite against Jake Paul, with KSI as a 4/7 favorite and Paul as a 6/4 underdog.

KSI, who knocked out YouTuber Joe Weller this month in a fight that attracted 22 million views on YouTube, recently asked his fans to decide who he should fight next. So far, prank artist Adam Saleh leads that fan poll.

But KSI said this week that if a Logan Paul fight can be made for this August in London, that’s what he’ll choose. On Saturday, Logan Paul uploaded a video saying he was probably going to fight KSI but he made it clear that a deal has not yet been reached.

Paul almost certainly has more experience than KSI in the ring, but the oddsmakers are apparently giving plenty of weight to KSI’s surprisingly solid performance against Weller.

Yet, if you think Paul would win, as I do, the oddsmakers have officially given you the chance to make good money if you lay it down on Paul to win.
