Anderson Silva Wins via Decision (+500)
Anderson Silva Moneyline (+193)
I am pretty baffled the line opened up at a pick ‘em but I am now in complete utter shock that Anderson Silva is closing in a 2-1 underdog price here and has been creeping up in price all
week. Sure it probably has to do with the whole “knockout” rumors that Silva let slip out but I am
personally not buying the fact he was knocked out twice.
Jake Paul has decent power and is a pretty good athlete but his boxing skills are pretty poor. Sure he is younger but I cannot ignore the fact how less than impressive his boxing skills are
and his conditioning is not something to ride home about either. If you are going to give me nearly 2-1 underdog odds on one of the greatest mixed martial arts of all-time in Anderson Silva
who yes, is 47 years old, is not what he once was, but is facing a below average boxer in an eight round fight then give me those odds all day. You are going to tell me Anderson Silva only
has a 34% chance of winning this fight? His decision prop is nice too as Paul probably tires out and significantly slows down midway through the fight and Silva picks him apart to get a
decision victory. I will give it to Jake – he is tough and can take a shot. I am picking and betting Anderson Silva here with a smaller play on his decision prop. As long as Silva wins this fight I will be happy.
Thanks for reading and best of luck!
