Jake "Problem Child" Paul will take on "Iron" Mike Tyson in a heavyweight boxing match at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Saturday, July 20 as we break down the Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson odds from our best boxing betting sites.

Even if you're not a boxing fan, the sporting event of the summer will take place on Saturday, July 20, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. That's when "Iron" Mike Tyson battles with Jake "Problem Child" Paul. The former YouTuber opened as the heavy favorite in the early Paul vs. Tyson odds, but there has been drastic movement toward the more senior (and more accomplished) of the two fighters.  

At 27, Paul remains strategic in his opponent choices as he builds his resume. His latest selection is the 57-year-old boxing icon. Despite questions about the match's authenticity, Netflix is poised to attract unprecedented viewership.

Here are the early Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson odds ahead of their bout on Saturday, July 20.

Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson odds: Saturday, July 20

Market states fight must be scheduled for a minimum of eight rounds for bets to have action.

FighterOpening oddsLatest odds (April 15)Implied win probability
Jake Paul-500-15060%
Mike Tyson+325+11546.51%

Paul opened as a heavy betting favorite against the man 30 years his senior, but the odds have moved starkly in Tyson's favor. Paul opened at -500 but went up to -150 as of mid-April. The market changed from a 10-round minimum to eight rounds, and it was also announced that fight would declare a winner only if there's a knockout. There's notably no three-way betting line with a tie seemingly very much an option.

Those new odds imply a 60% chance of Paul being the victor, and it would take a $150 bet to return a profit of $100 on a winning "Problem Child" wager.

The same $100 bet on Tyson would return a profit of $115 with an upset win by the icon. That comes with a 46.51% implied probability after "Iron Mike" opened with just a 23.53% chance.

The odds will continue to move regularly over the coming months, with public betting action on either fighter, as well as pre-fight reports influencing the direction of those odds.

How to bet on boxing

To bet on boxing, research fighters' records and styles, then explore various bet types like moneyline, round betting, and method of victory bets.

How do boxing betting odds work?

Boxing betting odds represent the probability of different outcomes in a boxing match and help determine potential payouts for bettors.

The most common type of boxing betting odds is the moneyline, which indicates the likelihood of each fighter winning the match. For example, if Fighter A has odds of -200 and Fighter B has odds of +150, Fighter A is considered the favorite, while Fighter B is the underdog. The negative number (-200) next to Fighter A's name indicates how much money you would need to bet to win $100, while the positive number (+150) next to Fighter B's name indicates how much you would win if you bet $100.

In addition to the moneyline, boxing betting odds may also include Over/Under rounds, round betting, and method of victory bets.

Over/Under rounds allow bettors to wager on whether the fight will last longer or shorter than a specified number of rounds set by the sportsbook. Round betting involves predicting the specific round in which the fight will end, while method of victory bets allow bettors to wager on how the fight will be won (i.e., knockout, decision).

Understanding these different types of betting odds can provide bettors with a variety of options to tailor their wagers to their predictions and risk preferences. By analyzing fighters' skills, styles, and recent performances, bettors can make informed decisions and potentially capitalize on favorable betting opportunities in the dynamic world of boxing betting.
