Jake Paul and Ben Askren will be battling the 2021 boxing match predictions, betting trends
Jake Paul will continue his unlikely journey as a boxer with his third professional wrestling match. This time his opponent is a real fighter and not a YouTuber or NBA player.
On April 17, Paul will face the retired artist Ben Askre, a mixed wrestler 8 round fight that will be the title of Triller’s Fight Club at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
Since starting his boxing career, Paul has won 2-0 with two wins against AnEsonGib and Nate Robinson in the playoffs. Both fighters had never entered a boxing ring before facing Paul. Former Bellator and ONE FC Askren champions have also not had a professional boxing match. However, he has had a successful 12-year MMA career and has faced some of the best in the sport.
It will be the first time that Paul has tremendous confidence in confronting anyone with combat experience while Askren aims to silence the big mouth of the superstar on social media.
Here are the betting options to help you make your choice.
All odds at the hands of FanDuel.
Jake Paul Vs. Ben Askren odds
- Jake Paul: -190
- I’m Askren: +148
- Sweepstakes: +2000
Although Paul has only two fights, he has no opponents coming out of the second round, the oddsmakers believe he has shown enough in the boxing ring to get an opponent not known for his strikingness. Paul -190 is a favorite, which means it would take a $ 190 bet to get a $ 100 return. As for Askrene, 12 years of mixed martial arts experience doesn’t mean much. The two-time NCAA Division I national wrestling champion has tremendous credentials, but hasn’t proven much in terms of his boxing ability. Therefore, it stands as a +148 subterfuge against YouTuber. A $ 100 bet would win $ 148 if you have to bet on Askren to win.
Prediction of Jake Paul vs Ben Ask
Say what you want about Jake Paul, but the 24-year-old YouTuber takes his training very seriously. Although he hasn’t found any quality opponents, he has shown great stamina, has strong strength and is basically strong. As for Askrene, he was a champion in both MMA promotions and despite his stay in the UFC, the world fighter is not a very good boxer. He had three fights in the UFC and two of them happened without him making a single strike. Actually, Jorge Masvidal had a one-five loss loss, but he talks about a one-dimensional view of the fighting game.
Askren has a lot of experience as a fighter, but he won’t help against Paul unless he shows tremendous improvement in his call-up. Keep in mind, Askren never knocked out an opponent when they were both standing. All 12 MMA finishes have come along with the opponent on the ground, thanks to a great fight. Unfortunately, wrestling is not a part of boxing and Askreni has been asked to use his minimum of fine skills against an opponent who has been training in this discipline for three years now.
It can be annoying for some, but don’t let whoever wins this fight blur your vision. Askren can take a punch and hit Paul if the fight enters the final rounds. However, he is in a completely different world against an opponent he doesn’t like and will get out early. One way or another, the Youtube star will see his hand raised and another paycheck will give him a huge day and a step forward after defeating Askren.
