Nate Robinson vs Jake Paul Odds: Undercard Analysis & Prediction

After news broke that Mike Tyson would return to the boxing ring for the first time in 15 years to take on Roy Jones Jr., an undercard bout was announced as well.

Former NBA guard Nate Robinson is taking on YouTube star Jake Paul on the undercard of Tyson/Jones. Originally, this card was set to take place on September 12, but it is now scheduled for November 28.

The YouTuber, Paul, already has a pro boxing victory, with a first-round knockout of AnEsonGib in early 2020, and is the favorite in Paul vs Robinson betting odds, with the former NBA star, Robinson, coming in as the underdog.

Online sportsbook Bovada has released odds for this celebrity boxing match with Paul listed as the -250 favorite and Robinson as the +195 underdog. This means you would have to wager $250 to profit $100 with a Paul victory, while a successful $100 bet on Robinson would profit you $195.

According to our sports betting calculator, Paul’s odds of -235 have an implied win probability of 71.4 percent, while Robinson’s odds of +195 have an implied win probability of 33.9 percent.

How Did Robinson vs Paul Come To Be?

This fight didn’t just arise out of thin air, but instead has been gaining momentum since late May. Robinson — the former NBA guard who won three slam dunk competitions — called out Paul, saying the YouTuber bullied his former boxing opponents knowing full well that he would beat them. Robinson then referred to himself as a top-tier athlete and said he would get training from the best of the best to ensure victory in a potential bout.

Like him or hate him, Jake and his brother Logan have done great business in the sport of boxing recently with the two of them putting on large events on DAZN. Of course, it was Logan who was the headliner against KSI. With two boxing matches under his belt — one amateur and one pro — that both ended in knockouts, it’s no surprise that Paul has accepted Robinson’s offer, especially with the opportunity to be on the same card as boxing legends Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr.

Paul vs Robinson Betting Prediction

I feel like we can draw some similarities to the betting preview we did for the proposed bout between Antonio Brown and Logan Paul. On one hand, you have a true athlete, the former NBA star, Robinson, who performed at the highest level of his sport. On the other is a guy who has spent some time hitting mitts, sparring and actually having fights.

Unlike the Brown/Paul hype, where we saw a video of Antonio hitting mitts that wasn’t pretty, Robinson didn’t look too bad in his video, keeping his guard high and using his hips well to move. He will be at a disadvantage in terms of height and perhaps in terms of reach, which could pose an issue as the YouTube sensation relied a lot upon his size and great jab to set up heavier punches and maintain distance in his previous fights.

If Robinson is to win this fight, he’ll have to find a way into the pocket. He may have the advantage in speed and agility, which, if used correctly, can create angles and enable him to land on Paul. However, as I mentioned above, Paul sticks to his jab very well, which could keep Robinson at bay and batter him.

Prediction: Jake Paul (-250) via knockout

Other Fights On Tyson vs Jones Card

As is the case with many boxing cards, they tend to be quite top-heavy and that is no different in this case with Paul vs Robinson the co-main behind Tyson vs Jones. That said, the two opening fights should still be entertaining. 

The curtain jerker will be a heavyweight tilt with former UFC fighter Rashad “Daywalker” Coulter returning to the squared circle for the first time since his first-round knockout win in 2015. He will be taking on undefeated British boxer Viddal “Ril” Riley, who is also a YouTuber and the trainer of KSI (who fought Jake Paul’s older brother Logan). Riley has had four pro fights, winning all of them with two knockouts and two decisions.

Following the heavyweight bout and setting the table for the co-main is former WBC super-middleweight and WBA light heavyweight champion Badou “The Ripper” Jack returning to the boxing ring for the first time in nearly a year, looking to snap his two-fight losing streak. Meanwhile, this is a big opportunity for Blake “The Beast” McKernan, who is undefeated at 13-0 with six knockouts, but this by far will be his toughest test.
