The sports world will turn its attention to Las Vegas, Nevada, on Saturday night for the long-anticipated rematch between Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (42-0-1, 41 KOs) and Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury (29-0-1, 20 KOs) on ESPN/FOX Pay-Per-View.

Wilder, 34, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, has held the WBC Heavyweight Championship since 2015. Fury, 31, of Manchester, England, is the heavyweight division’s lineal champion thanks to his victory over Wladimir Klitschko in November of 2015.

The market for this fight technically opened over a year ago. Bookmakers will periodically post betting lines for fights before they become official.

Right after the fight became official in late December, William Hill posted Fury as a -138 favorite with Wilder coming back at +115. The Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas had it Fury -130/Wilder +110. There was nothing all that surprising about the opening line — you can make an argument that either fighter could be favored in this clash of styles — but the prices have adjusted since then and now Wilder is the slight favorite across the market.

One thing to keep in mind when surveying the market is that boxing odds are rarely this tight. Also remember that oddsmakers, especially those based in Las Vegas, are likely bracing themselves for a ton of late Fury money as his fans traveling from the United Kingdom and Ireland will be in full-voice and full-wallet at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

We’re tracking the odds for Wilder-Fury II all the way until the Opening Bell below:

8:45 p.m. ET: Boxing’s most-anticipated rematch is rapidly approaching.

With around two hours until the fight, Wilder is officially favored at all seven sportsbooks we’re tracking.

Here are the latest odds at each:

MGM: Wilder -117; Fury +105
Willam Hill: Wilder -140; Fury +120

6 p.m. ET: With less than six hours until Wilder-Fury II, the betting market continues to hold relatively steady.

The odds have moved slightly in Wilder’s favor at a couple books, with PointsBet featuring the biggest change (-118 to -130) since our last update.

Here’s a snapshot of where the books we’re tracking stand as of writing.

MGM: Wilder +100; Fury -110
Willam Hill: Wilder -130; Fury +110
DraftKings: Wilder -125/Fury +102
FanDuel: Wilder -112/Fury -104
Bet365: Wilder -110/Fury -110
PointsBet: Wilder -130/Fury +110
Westgate SuperBook: Wilder -140/Fury +120

3:30 p.m. ET: We’re about eight hours out from Wilder-Fury II and the betting market has been pretty quiet, which is not that surprising. The only really noteworthy adjustment is at MGM where Tyson Fury is now the -110 favorite, meaning the odds have flipped since this morning.

MGM: Wilder +100; Fury -110
Willam Hill: Wilder -135; Fury +115
DraftKings: Wilder -125/Fury +102
FanDuel: Wilder -112/Fury -104
Bet365: Wilder -110/Fury -110
PointsBet: Wilder -118/Fury +100
Westgate SuperBook: Wilder -130/Fury +110

Even though the odds for this mega-fight have remained relatively stagnant, bookmakers expect this market to heat up later on.

“We’re expecting the British and Irish fans who traveled in for the fight to start betting later on today,” Jeff Sherman of the Westgate SuperBook told the Action Network. “We haven’t taken any big bets yet, just a lot of accumulation.”

Sherman noted that the Westgate did take a bet from a respected player on Fury at +110 but that Wilder was attracting the majority of the support.

9:30 a.m. ET: We don’t expect the market to really start to move until later today, but it’s still worth taking a look at where the market was yesterday and where it woke up on Saturday.

Here’s where the odds stood on Friday:

MGM: Wilder -110; Fury -110
Willam Hill: Wilder -125; Fury +105
DraftKings: Wilder -125/Fury +105
FanDuel: Wilder -108/Fury -108
Bet365: Wilder -110/Fury -110
PointsBet: Wilder -118/Fury +100
Westgate SuperBook: Wilder -130/Fury +110

And here’s what the market looks like on Saturday morning:

MGM: Wilder -110; Tyson Fury +100
Willam Hill: Wilder -135; Fury +115
DraftKings: Wilder -121/Fury +100
FanDuel: Wilder -112/Fury -104
Bet365: Wilder -110/Fury -110
PointsBet: Wilder -118/Fury +100
Westgate SuperBook: Wilder -130/Fury +110

As you can see, there was very little adjustment overnight. William Hill’s 10-cent move from Wilder -125 to -135 was the only real shift in the market, and that is small potatoes in boxing.
