Betting on Jake Paul’s Next Opponent – Odds for Conor McGregor and Other Possible Candidates

| December 2, 2020 11:22 am PDT
Betting Odds for Jake Paul’s Next Fight

The year is 2020. The line between fantasy and reality is thinner than a human hair.

It’s getting harder to know what the hell is going on, right? Take Jake Paul, for instance. Here’s a guy that was once only known to teenyboppers and YouTube enthusiasts but now finds his name mentioned among some of the best-known boxers and mixed martial artists on the planet.

Yes, you can get odds for Jake Paul fighting Conor McGregor. There are even odds for Jake Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather doing the rounds. All because — get this — Paul pulled off the “knockout of the year” over former NBA point guard Nate Robinson.

It’s crazy. This year just continues to get wilder by the month. If anyone is hoping that 2021 will be any different, I hate to break it to you. It won’t. Not if some of the crazy betting events that are being suggested right now come to fruition.

At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Oprah calling out Brock Lesnar for a fight. Or Bernie Sanders trying his hand in the NBA. So, let’s just ride the crest of this weird wave to wherever it takes us. Let’s… go with the flow.

We can start by looking at the odds for Jake Paul’s next opponent, sorted by each potential candidate. There are some funny ones in here, so strap yourself in.

Dillion Danis +140

It seems the odds for Jake Paul vs. Dillon Danis make this a proposition that could very well happen.

To those of you unacquainted with Danis, he is better known as a training partner and close friend of Conor McGregor. A former BJJ standout, Danis is 2-0 in Bellator MMA.

Danis is also known for being an abrasive windup merchant on social media. He has traded insults with an uncountable number of fighters, former fighters, coaches, and pretty much anyone else involved in the sport of mixed martial arts.

It is this “skill” that has likely put him on Paul’s radar.

Danis isn’t exactly regarded for being an elite striker. But come on, this dude is a professional mixed martial artist who can fight. Surely both of the “Paul sisters,” as he eloquently put it, would stand no chance.

Right?

KSI +180

Next up is KSI, who Paul’s older brother, Logan, fought twice already.

KSI, real name Olajide Olayinka Williams “JJ” Olatunji, is an English YouTube star that drew with Logan in a white-collar fight before beating him as a professional.

That just goes to show the state of the sport of boxing these days. A friend of mine asked around the time of the last something in the region of “If these two internet clowns can get their hands on pro licenses, it does discredit the sport, right?” Well, yeah. It does.

But one person who believes that YouTube boxers are good for the sport is Mike Tyson. Tyson, who headlined the card that Paul knocked Robinson out on, went as far as to say that “boxing is going back thanks to the YouTube boxers.”

Hmmm.

Nate Robinson +300

Poor Nate Robinson.

The guy has been destroyed by everyone from 50 Cent, Patrick Mahomes, and DeAndre Hopkins for being crushed like a can from Paul’s swinging shot.

Robinson had his supporters before the fight. He also had several fellow sports stars acting nothing short of devastated at the manner of his loss.

Will Robinson fight Paul in a rematch? I don’t think he’ll get anywhere near a ring.

Kind of like his career in the NBA. Oh! (Ba Dum Tss!)

Conor McGregor +1800

In a post-fight interview conducted after his win over the greatest of all time, Nate Robinson, Jake Paul stated that he wanted to knock out Conor McGregor.

Yes, the Conor McGregor. The former UFC two-weight world champion. The one who is world-famous for that powerful left hand.

Rather than telling you how I reacted when I heard Paul say this, with a straight face, I’ll let Henry Hill and the gang do it for me.

Can Paul beat McGregor? Perhaps he could overcome McGregor’s strengths and weaknesses and secure a famous victory. Perhaps then he could then catch the Loch Ness Monster with a fishing rod or restore order to Gotham City.

All jokes aside, there are ways for Paul to beat McGregor. Firing a rocket launcher at “The Notorious” from a safe distance should do it…

LeBron James +4000

He’s beaten one baller, who’s to say that he can’t starch LeBron, too?

Well, Nate Robinson is 5’9″ and weighs 180 pounds. LeBron James is 6’9″ and weighs 250 pounds. That’s one hell of a size difference to overcome. But size isn’t everything, right?

That’s right. Size isn’t everything. But the colossal size of arguably the greatest player and athlete to ever play in the NBA does matter. LeBron would… you know the rest.

But don’t take it from me. Here’s Paul admitting the Lakers mega star’s domain is a no-go area.

Floyd Mayweather +6000

Floyd sent out a message of support to Robinson following his vicious knockout loss at the hands of Paul.

But could he be tempted to step in there and get revenge? I wouldn’t put it past Mayweather. Seriously. If the money is right, Floyd will move faster to the contract than a moth to a lightbulb.

The all-time great has partaken in exhibitions (whoops, I mean “real boxing match”) against the likes of Conor McGregor and Tenshin Nasukawa. If there is enough to be made from fighting Paul, he’ll take it.

Earlier this year, Jake’s older brother, Logan, suggested that he was looking to get back in the ropes. Odds for Mayweather vs. Logan Paul were released for that fight but have been subsequently pulled.

Who knows? I mean, +6000 could be worth a small bet?

Snoop Dogg +10000

Come on, man.

Jake Paul vs. Snoop Dogg? That could never happen. No way. There’s no way anyone could let Uncle Snoop into the ring. He’s far too lean for that. Besides, how could anyone throw a vicious shot at one of the guys responsible for “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang?”

Instead, let’s just get Snoop back in the commentary booth for these novelty fights. I’m personally not a huge fan of them, but the hip-hop legend was funny on the mic. He might have found another career if the internet is to be believed.

More Opponents Jake Paul Could Fight Next

  • Logan Paul +450
  • Evander Kane +600
  • Austin McBroom +800
  • Kyle Farnsworth +900
  • Robin Lehner +1100

So, looking past the more notable names, you can find odds for Jake Paul’s next opponent next to some really interesting characters.

Firstly, his brother Logan Paul. You can get odds of +450 on the siblings doing what the likes of the Klitschkos or Diaz brothers would never, ever even consider doing.

And when the hell did Kyle Farnsworth (+900) get pulled into this?

Man, the world has gone crazy.

Betting on Jake Paul’s Next Fight

You might have a lot of love for Jake Paul. Then again, you could walk right past him on a quiet street and still not recognize him.

But you can bet on Paul’s next fight, for what it is worth. Now, I can’t tell if you’re excited by this or would rather dunk your most delicate bits in Johnny Cakes batter before placing said bits over a hot stove. Each to their own, I guess.

If you are looking to bet on who Jake Paul fights next, you can find odds on the top online sportsbooks. You might be as sure as night follows day that he will take on Conor McGregor or even Logan Paul next. Whatever your thinking, you can get your money down and hope for the best.

Now, if you’d rather bet on real fight action, why not check out what’s coming up over the next couple of months

Good luck with your bets!
