Jake Paul’s Next Fight Odds: Danis Early Fave To Be Next Opponent

Jake Paul once again entered the boxing ring and silenced haters in the co-main event behind the recent Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout. Paul, a YouTube star, settled his beef with former NBA guard Nate Robinson via a second-round knockout in a dominant and lopsided affair.

It didn’t take long for suitors to line up to be the next one to try to take Paul out and, of course, take advantage of a nice payday. We’re here to break down Jake Paul’s next fight odds and which candidate is most likely to step into the ring with him next.

The above tweets are from NHL goaltender Robin Lehner and NHL forward Evander Kane. The two likely don’t have the name recognition to warrant a fight with Paul; however, the one that is most intriguing is this one:

Bellator middleweight Dillon Danis, a training partner of Conor McGregor, would be a logical next step in Paul’s career and the current MMA fighter loves getting any attention.

Online sportsbook Bovada has listed Jake Paul’s next fight odds and has listed Dillon Danis as the +150 favorite to be his next opponent, followed closely by KSI at +180, Logan Paul at +500, Evander Kane at +750 and Austin McBroom at +850 to round out the top five on the oddsboard.

Who Will Be Jake Paul’s Next Opponent?

Although there are several names on the Jake Paul next fight odds list and I’m sure there are other candidates out there who weren’t listed, in my eyes the one that makes the most sense is Dillon Danis.

Second in the Jake Paul fight odds is KSI, who fought Jake’s older brother Logan and scored a draw and a controversial split-decision win. This matchup makes a little bit of sense for Jake, who could avenge his brother’s loss. That said, KSI arguably was losing that second bout vs Logan and I think Jake is looking to challenge himself more than fighting another celebrity or YouTube personality.

As for Danis, he’s constantly running his mouth on social media, calling out anyone who will listen, despite being in a contract with MMA promotion Bellator. “El Jefe” is a really good submission artist and has two pro wins, both in that manner. Paul called out Danis after he beat Robinson, and Danis has responded on social media – seems like the fight to make.

Jake Paul vs Dillon Danis Betting Odds

Online sportsbook Bovada has also released a betting line for a potential Jake Paul vs Dillon Danis fight and has made the Bellator fighter a sizable -220 favorite, with the YouTube star coming back at +155. This means you’d have to wager $220 on a Danis win to profit $100 while a $100 bet on a Paul win would profit you $155.

According to our sports betting calculator, Danis’ odds of -220 have an implied win probability of 68.75 percent while Paul’s odds of +155 have an implied win probability of 39.22 percent.

Now, right off the bat, you may be licking your chops at the -220 Dillon Danis line because he is a professional mixed martial artist. That said, if you’ve ever seen him fight, his striking isn’t the component his opponents fear – it’s his grappling and submission skills, and of course in a boxing ring there is none of that.

Paul is becoming a legit boxer whether you like it or not and one of the things I talk about when it comes to these celebrity boxing events is if you stay composed and utilize a jab, you will win. Well, Paul does just that – he stays within himself, throws a snappy jab, and his accuracy is really impressive when his opponents rush in on him.

Overall, I get why the line is where it is, but I think at +155 there’s a lot of value on Paul based mostly on the fact he doesn’t overextend himself and sticks to the basics. Danis’ striking has been improving as well as he trains out of SBG Ireland with Conor McGregor, but he still has work to do in that area of his game. This would be an interesting and close fight.

Prediction: Jake Paul (+155) via decision
