Former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KO) returns to the boxing ring seeking his first win in nearly three years against Robert Helenius (31-3, 20 KO) Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The 'Bronze Bomber' seems to already be looking ahead — not just to his next potential opponent but toward the end of his career — entering this matchup and after two wars with Tyson Fury has something to prove. The 'Nordic Nightmare' is coming off back-to-back wins and faces the toughest opponent of his career.
Check out the latest odds and props below for Saturday’s fight.
Wilder vs. Helenius Odds
Odds as of Friday and via DraftKings.
No surprise here given his popularity that Wilder, the former champ, is the huge favorite despite coming off two losses to Tyson Fury, while Helenius had two convincing wins against a previously undefeated opponent in Adam Kownacki.
Wilder opened as a -700 favorite at DraftKings in August, moved down to -625 then up to -900 before settling at the current price. Helenius shouldn't be overlooked, though. Three of his last four wins have come as an underdog, including beating Kownacki as a +2000 dog in their first meeting.
Oddsmakers don't expect this fight to last very long, at all. Wilder is -450 to win by stoppage, fitting considering he's only gone the distance twice in his career. Helenius hasn't seen the 12th round of a fight in five years.
Odds that the fight reaches the cards are listed at -750 and the round total is 5.5. For alternate round props, over 6.5 is listed at +130 and over 7.5 is listed at +180.
