KSI vs Logan Paul 2: Who Poker Players Are Betting On

Poker players will generally bet on pretty much anything if it’s fun and there’s a decent chance of picking up some money, so the much-anticipated boxing rematch between YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul will probably be right up your street!


Last year the duo fought to a majority draw in what was described as the ‘The Biggest White-Collar Boxing Match Ever’, two judges scoring it even with one giving the edge to KSI.

Our straw poll above reflects that small edge for KSI as the build-up to the rematch as the build-up to their November 9th showdown continues, but as you’ll see down below, the sportsbooks have different ideas…


Although poker has seen plenty of its own boxing matches between pros – Antonio Esfandiari beating Kevin Hart in the most recent big bout – none of them have ever come close to the hype and money generated by KSI vs Logan Paul 2.

Londoner KSI, real name Olajide William Olatunji, and Logan Paul, from LA, were reputed to have made more than $20million each from their fight in Manchester.

The pay-per-view numbers on YouTube were staggering, with 1.6million live viewers tuning in, as well as 21 million more views within a day, and over 25milllion by the end of the week.

At stake this time, money aside, is the YouTube Boxing Championship Belt that KSI currently holds.

The bookmakers are already making Logan Paul a slight favourite.

Online sportsbook BetOnline has him at -185 (8/15 for UK sportsfans) with KSI coming in at +150 (3/2).

SkyBet has another draw at 10/1, and you can get 4/1 for KSI winning by decision.

If you fancy a repeat win for KSI then maybe now is time to get your money on...
