Jake Paul gets his biggest boxing test yet on Sunday night against Tyron Woodley, and bettors are siding with the former UFC star.

However, the money doesn’t agree.

According to data at both PointsBet and BetMGM, while more bets are coming in on Woodley, the total handle (money wagered) tilts toward the YouTube sensation turned competitive boxer.

At PointsBet, it’s 58% of bets on Woodley but the handle flips to 54% in favor of Paul. A whopping 85% of bets are on Woodley at BetMGM, but just 63% of the money follows.

In general, that often means the bigger bets are on Paul.

This is Paul’s fourth professional fight and second in a row against a former MMA fighter. After two wins over a YouTuber and former NBA player Nate Robinson, Paul’s attempt into legitimacy first came against Ben Askren. Paul beat the former Bellator welterweight champion by TKO in the first round of a fight in February.

His next test is Woodley, who was the UFC welterweight champion for years. This will be Woodley’s first fight outside of the octagon since his last fight in the UFC in March. His time with the UFC ended after four consecutive losses.

Paul is the betting favorite at -200. Woodley is the +160 underdog.

The fight will happen around midnight ET late Sunday and can be purchased on Showtime. For more information on the fight details and where to find it, click here.
