Tyson Fury’s still the overwhelming favorite in Saturday’s WBC heavyweight clash against Dillian Whyte. The underdog, however, is attracting some attention leading up to the bout.
Fury — who’s off back-to-back wins against Deontay Wilder — opened -600 at BetMGM, but is -450 in the latest update.
Whyte, meanwhile, moved from +400 to +350.
At MGM, Fury’s attracting 40% of the tickets, but 80% of the total handle, or dollars wagered.
Whyte’s pulling in 42% and 15%, respectively, while a draw — which hasn’t moved off +2500 — is getting 18% of the tickets.
Fury’s been virtually unstoppable, compiling a 30-0-1 record. The lone blemish on the record’s a split decision against Wilder back in 2018, but Fury more than proved himself with consecutive wins over The Bronze Bomber both in Feb. 2020 and Oct. ’21.
Twenty-two of Fury’s victories have come via knockout. At MGM, that’s where bettors are putting their dough: Fury to win by KO/TKO/Technical Decision or DQ is the most-bet prop, priced at -150.
Fury to win in Round 1 is the second-most-bet prop, at +3300, followed by Fury to win on points (+260).
Whyte suffered one of his two losses in Aug. 2020 to Alexander Povetkin. However, the 34-year-old redeemed himself the following March, getting the better of Povetkin as a -400 favorite.
Saturday marks the first title shot for Whyte, whose only other loss came to Anthony Joshua back in 2015.
The match is in London at Wembley Stadium.
