Tommy Fury is favored vs KSI

Fury vs KSI Odds & Picks: Can TNT Withstand All That Firepower?

Tommy Fury will return to the squared circle October 14 against Olajide Olatunji, better known as "KSI," in an eight-round pro boxing match. 

The Fury-KSI bout, which takes place at the AO Arena in Manchester, England, will serve as the main event in a fight card also featuring Dillon Danis vs Logan Paul in the co-main. 

Fury is a -250 favorite over KSI (+175).

Fury vs KSI Preview: Who Will Win?

Fury, the half-brother of world heavyweight champ Tyson Fury, looks like the more established boxer, but his bout vs Jake Paul was very close. Can KSI score an upset?

How to Bet Tommy Fury

There's a chance Fury gets a few licks on KSI's chin, but he doesn't need to take a ton of risks to win this fight. KSI is bouncy and aggressive — that's what makes him fun — but Fury's gameplan should stymie him.

"TNT" owns a four-inch reach advantage over KSI. He can stick his long jab out and work off that. If KSI is constantly getting peppered with straights, this fight will drag on, and the longer the bout goes, the better Fury's chances.

I like a bet on Fury by decision.

How To Bet KSI

Give the 30-year-old credit, he goes for the kill, and he must be deceptive to defeat Fury. KSI's speed and power are fine, but Fury has elite coaching and he'll learn to shell up against his opponent's attacks. And if the combos get repetitive, as they were vs Paul, then Fury can fight very safe.

If you like KSI, obviously bet him straight up. If you're shooting for deeper value, I like a longshot wager on KSI by KO/TKO.

Tommy Fury vs KSI Pick

Fury has a heartier boxing background and stronger physical attributes. Once TNT deflects a few of KSI's blasts of rage, the pace of this fight will settle, and that's where Fury thrives.

I'll be betting Fury to win by decision, plus the fight to go the distance.

Pick: Fury by decision (TBD); Fight Goes The distance (TBD)
