British heavyweight star Tyson Fury fights in Las Vegas for the second straight time on Saturday night when he battles undefeated Swede Otto Wallin. The main event starts at midnight ET from T-Mobile Arena. Fury (28-0-1, 20 KOs) knocked out German heavyweight Tom Schwarz in June in Las Vegas, ending that bout in less than two rounds. Wallin is 20-0 with 13 knockouts, but he hasn’t faced the caliber of opponents Fury has, and many experts view this fight as Fury’s final tuneup for a rematch with Deontay Wilder. Bookmakers list Fury, the lineal heavyweight champ, as a -3500 favorite (risk $3,500 to win $100) in the latest Fury vs. Wallin odds, with the 28-year-old Swede getting +1300 (risk $100 to win $1,300) as the underdog. You can also pick whether the fight will go the distance (a +240 underdog), among many wagering options. Before you make any Fury vs. Wallin picks or boxing predictions, you’ll want to hear what Peter Kahn has to say.
A fight game veteran with over 20 years of experience as a manager, promoter and advisor, Kahn has his finger on the pulse of what goes on inside and outside the ring. He can be heard weekly as co-host of “The Fight Guys” podcast on the SB Nation Radio Network.
Nobody knows the heavyweight division better. This year, Kahn called Wilder knocking out Dominic Breazeale in the first round, a massive 22-1 long shot bet. “Based on everything Wilder has expressed leading up to the fight and his true dislike and beef with Breazeale, expect Wilder to come out and try to get rid of him early in order to make a statement,” Kahn told readers. The result: Wilder ended it at the 2:17 mark with a violent one-punch knockout. Everyone who followed Kahn’s advice made a killing.
Now, Kahn has scouted Wallin vs. Fury from every angle and locked in his picks, including one that pays 11-1. He’s sharing all of his Fury vs. Wallin predictions over at SportsLine.
Kahn knows the 6-foot-9 Fury has a three-inch height advantage, a seven-inch reach edge and a much better resume. Assuming Fury gets by Wallin unscathed, the 31-year-old is expected to challenge Wilder for the WBC title in early 2020.
But just because Fury is a massive favorite doesn’t mean he’ll make quick work of Wallin.
Wallin has never lost and, at 6-foot-6, he won’t be intimidated. “Fury is tricky and has beaten good fighters, but there are some things that people haven’t done to him,” Wallin told reporters. “I am really confident in myself and my work ethic. I have worked for a long time and dreamed of this moment. Now, it is finally here and I have to try and grab it with both hands.”
Kahn is confident he has the Fury vs. Wallin winner, and he’s also going big on exactly how long the fight lasts. You should see his best bets before you make your own Fury vs. Wallin picks.
