Paul Becomes Even Heavier Favorite Against Diaz

When the Paul vs Diaz odds first opened back in April 2023, ‘The Problem Child’ was priced as a large -275 favorite to defeat Diaz. Those odds have shifted significantly in the past several months, with Paul now priced as a massive -425 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Paul’s implied chance of winning the fight based on the betting market has gone from 73.3% to 81%. Diaz’s implied chance of winning, meanwhile, has fallen from 31.75% to 24.4%. Per DraftKings, the most bet on fight outcome is Paul to win by KO/TKO/DQ at -150 odds.

The odds are clearly stacked in favor of the social media star-turned-boxer Saturday. Despite Diaz’s extensive experience in the MMA world, there are several factors that contribute to Paul being the favorite in this highly anticipated bout.

First and foremost, Paul has a significant size, strength, and power advantage over Diaz. Paul’s boxing skills have been honed through countless hours of training and sparring with top fighters, and his ability to deliver powerful punches has been consistently praised by his training partners.

This advantage in power could prove to be a decisive factor in the fight, as Diaz has only registered five knockouts in his 34-fight MMA career. Moreover, Paul’s youth and athleticism cannot be overlooked. At 26 years old, he is 12 years younger than Diaz, who is 38. 

The ultimate reason these boxing odds are so lopsided is we simply don’t know what to expect from Diaz in his pro boxing debut, while Paul has a proven track record in the ring against MMA combatants. This lack of professional boxing experience puts Diaz at a disadvantage, as Paul has solely focused on boxing for the past few years.
