Fury versus Wilder II Betting Prediction
06 January 2020
It has finally been confirmed. The rematch we all want to see. Deontay Wilder will put his WBC Heavyweight championship on the line once again against Tyson Fury. The fight will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on February 22, 2020.
British heavyweight Fury felt he was robbed when these two first locked horns at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on December 1, 2018. Many believed Fury, who was knocked down twice by Wilder, had done enough to win the title. The boos echoed around the Staples Center as the scorecards were readout. Mexican judge Alejandro Rochin scored the bout 115-111 to Wilder. Canadian judge Robert Tapper went in favor of Fury with 114-112. British judge Phil Edwards then surprised everyone by stating the fight was a draw 113-113, meaning Wilder retained his championship.
Fury told everyone who would listen he won the fight and that he would win any rematch between the pair. He is the –130 favorite to win the fight and rightly so. On the other side, Wilder can be backed at +105, but honestly, he doesn’t phase Fury and the Brit truly believes he has taken the best the American has thrown at him and survived.
Bettors Looking For A Better Return This Time Around
Fury felt hard done by with the final result, but he wasn’t the only one. A lot of bettors who invested money on this bout felt the same.
Bettors in both America and the United Kingdom were hit hard due to the tie. Not many predicted there would not be a winner, but this won’t stop them from throwing their money at this fight.
One bettor and professional boxer, Billy Joe Saunders, reportedly placed two bets worth £70,000 ($91,000) on Fury to win the fight. So the tie was not welcome in his eyes.
Fury To Gain Revenge
Wilder threw everything at Fury in the first fight. If he was fighting any other man, then the bout would have been over in the final round. Some bettors will still have confidence in Wilder, after all, he is undefeated after 43 fights. You can back Wilder to once again knock Fury down in the 12th, but with the Brit staying down. That is on offer at +2800.

Wilder’s last fight was against Luis Ortiz in Las Vegas. He knocked his opponent out in the seventh round. You can back him to do that to Fury at +1600.

Honestly, that is not going to happen. Fury is a clever fighter. He will have Wilder fully worked out. We expect him to box his way to victory, rather than go for the knockout. He boxed fantastically to shock Wladimir Klitschko, and he will do the same here. Back Fury at +138 to win by decision.
There are a number of other markets available on this bout. If you feel this fight will once again go the distance, back that outcome at +100. The odds for the fight not lasting the whole 12 rounds can be backed at -134. For this fight to finish in a draw again, which wouldn’t be a total shock, get on it at +2200.
Both fighters back powerful punches. Fury is on offer at +450 to win the fight by knockout, TKO or disqualification. Wilder can be backed at +145. We know both boxers are capable of knocking each other out, but this will be a more cagey affair.
You can also have a go at betting which round the fight will end in and who will be victorious. You can also back odds of -115 that the fight goes past 10.5 rounds. It will be the same price for it to be stopped before then.

You don’t want to miss this one. The winner will then be looking to unify the decision by going up against Anthony Joshua. Joshua currently holds the WBA, WBO, and IBF world heavyweight titles after claiming a points decision win over Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia.
Betting Pick: Tyson Fury to win by decision +138 (Unibet)
