Jake Paul defeated Tyron Woodley in late August by split decision and had his sights set on Tommy Fury for mid-December. However, about two weeks before the event, Fury has pulled out of the fight, so we are getting a rematch instead and in the Paul vs Woodley 2 odds, the YouTuber is favored once again.

As seen in the above video, there’s a little wrinkle in the contract after some claimed that there was a no-knockout clause in their first bout. Paul has offered $500,000 to Woodley if the latter can knock him out.

Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley 2 Betting Odds Analysis
In this rematch, it appears the sportsbooks had it right in the first place and are doubling down this time around. In the first bout, Jake Paul closed as the -175 chalk and he is set at -245 this time around. Similarly, the former UFC champion, Woodley, was the +145 underdog back in August and is now +195 in the second fight.
Taking the fight on late notice, there could be added value for Woodley, who claims he’s been training the whole time as Paul was likely game-planning for Fury and it’ll be interesting to see how quickly he can change that up. Additionally, their first fight was a split decision with one judge scoring it in favor of Tyron.
Paul vs Woodley 2 Preview
In the first bout, there were a lot of questions about whether Woodley would let his hands go as they had gone a little silent in the latter stages of his UFC career. Unfortunately for the former champ, it took a few rounds for him to get the timing and start throwing.
That said, his power was undeniable in the shots that he did land cleanly, notably in the fourth round when “The Chosen One” wobbled Jake heavily. Ultimately, though, Tyron was taking inventory for much of the fight, loading up on one strike at a time, leading to a split-decision loss.
Has Paul Continued To Improve?
“The Problem Child” had moments of success in the fight, landing some clean straights and uppercuts, but he never really hurt Woodley. I found that Paul did his best work when he was doubling and tripling up on his strikes, which seemed to anger Tyron and get him to charge forward.
I also liked Jake’s counter hooks when Tyron would move forward. So many times, Woodley would load up on a strike as he lunged and Paul would simply time that with a stiff jab or hook and then circle away, avoiding any damage.
Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley 2 Prediction
I nailed the pick for the first fight – Paul by decision – and I’m looking that way again. While Jake had moments in which he landed heavy, it seems he may not have the power to knock out the former UFC champion.
Conversely, I do think that Tyron can knock Jake out and I think if he were to win, that would be the method offering a little more value as well. In the end, I believe Jake will still have the speed advantage, these rounds are quickly starting to add up, which is building his in-ring experience, and he should be able to outpoint Tyron again.
