Jake Paul vs Ben Askren Betting Preview PT 2

Ben Askren, on the other hand, can be backed as high as 5/3 for a victory in this bout with a few books going a tad lower than that. The draw, which could be a very real possibility here, can be had in the region of around 18/1. That could wind up looking like a sharp selection come the end of the match if there isn’t much between the two fightes.

If the method of victory betting is anything to go by then you can bank on Jake Paul to knock out Ben Askren with an odds-on price of around 10/11. Paul has been stating his clear intention to knock out Askren during the build up to the fight and some wonder whether he genuinely has enough punching power to drop the former Bellator champion. 

It remains true that Paul has not looked particularly dangerous in his sparring sessions but, up to this point anyway, has looked solid in the two fights he has had in the PPV universe. Though neither were against accomplished fighters, the fact remains that Askren has won a number of fights against a number of top professionals over his twelve year career and his ring sense could ultimately be what delivers a win for him. 

If Askren is to win the fight, the bookmakers fancy him to win by decision with a price hovering around 7/2 while he is 4/1 or even 9/2 to win by KO, TKO or a DQ victory against Jake Paul. Jake Paul by decision can be backed as high as 13/2 and that shows the bookmakers seem to think that he’s got every chance of losing the fight if he can’t knock out Askren. 

One interesting wager is the odds on “to be knocked down and win” and with only eight rounds to work with here then you reckon that we might see that happen. Particularly if Paul can connect early on and put Askren on the mat only to wind up losing on points over the course of the fight. 

The round betting seems to favour a Jake Paul KO or TKO victory at some point in the second or third round with both options priced at an 8/1 margin.
