Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3 tops the marquee of T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend on October 9th, 2021. In the Fury vs Wilder 3 odds, Tyson Fury remains the favorite after being listed at -295 in the boxing odds to start the week. However, when the Fury vs Wilder 3 trilogy fight was first announced in May, Fury was as high as a -360 favorite in the boxing betting odds at some sportsbooks.
A court arbitration set forth this third heavyweight clash and created a ripple effect that scrapped the planned pair of Fury vs Anthony Joshua bouts.
The ring walks for Fury vs Wilder 3 are expected for 11 PM EST, with the boxing match being broadcasted on ESPN+ and Fox Sports PPV. This WBC world heavyweight championship affair could likely be the closing chapter in a story that has been unfurling for the last three years.
Fury vs Wilder 3 Odds
Odds as of October 6th at FanDuel
A couple of times this bout was set up including last Summer, which fell out due to Wilder injury.
Also, they tried to book this trilogy fight for July 24th, 2021, but it was not to be as Fury tested positive for COVID.
Tyson Fury Boxing Odds and Betting Analysis
Tyson Fury is undefeated as a professional boxer and is the lineal champion as well as the WBC titleholder.
After battling personal demons and returning to the sport, The Gypsy King has showcased incremental improvements each bout.
Fury has long been praised for his incredible speed and ring IQ. But he has really added to the complexion of his combat approach in recent outings by showcasing his attitude for being a pressure-heavy, power puncher.
Adding in that Kronk Gym style of maintaining a consistently strong base to generate meaningful power punches, it would seem that Fury is arguably the most well-rounded pound-for-pound boxer today.
This clash has an understandable boxing betting line considering the generally lopsided nature of the previous Fury versus Wilder bouts.
Fury has become less of a favorite in the Fury vs Wilder 3 odds since the open, going from -360 to -310 in the DraftKings boxing odds as of this writing. FanDuel is offering Fury with a little bit more value at -290 in the boxing odds, so if you’re looking to make a wager on the Gypsy King that’s the sportsbook for you.

Though Fury has gone 1-0-1 in their series so far, a guy like Wilder is not to be completely underrated here.
He is the most prolific heavyweight knockout artist of this generation and is known to put people to sleep when they sleep on him.
Deontay Wilder Boxing Odds and Betting Analysis
Deontay Wilder is a 2008 Olympic bronze medalist and held the WBC championship for half a decade.
Subsequent to the Fury rematch, The Bronze Bomber switched things up by enlisting Malik Scott as his trainer and seemingly his overall training methodology as well.
Scott has a long history with Wilder as a former opponent of his over seven years ago. Many think he has added a level of slickness as well as technical proficiency to the windmilling approach of Wilder.
Deontay Wilder has had a couple of moments in the first fight where he did land his vaunted power on Fury and put him to the canvas.
Outside of those moments across their two prizefights, Fury has largely just put it on, Wilder. He used effective offense and was defensively savvy enough to subvert the touch of death that Wilder possesses.
Fury vs Wilder 3 Tale of the Tape
While Wilder is perhaps the consummate definition of the puncher’s chance narrative considering his ability to generate one punch KOs from seemingly any angle, I still don’t like The Bronze Bomber‘s chances here.
In the end, I have to go with The Gypsy King in this one as I see Fury besting Wilder again this weekend. With Fury’s boxing odds moving to -295, I think that’s the best play at this conjecture. Wilder’s odds should intrigue some boxing bettors with his KO power, but don’t be fooled by the appetizing underdog boxing line.
Pick: Tyson Fury (-290)
