The betting odds for the Logan Paul and KSI boxing rematch have been released – with the American being tipped as an early favorite. 

After a year of back-and-forth, rumors, and speculation, KSI and Logan Paul finally announced that they would be stepping back into the ring and squaring off in their long-awaited rematch on November 9.

The difference this round, though, will be that the fight is a completely professional event – with Matchroom Boxing, who are promoting the event, placing world title fights on the undercard. Of course, the pair have traded verbal blows in their two press conferences, but now, the betting markets have had their first say on what they believe will happen.

The rematch to KSI and Logan Paul's first bout has been highly-anticipated by fans.

According to OddsChecker, a website that rounds up betting odds from multiple UK betting outlets, Logan Paul has started things off as a slight favorite over KSI. 

As of writing, the average odds for the American winning in any fashion stand at 4/7, which means that you’d have to bet £10 to receive £15.71. KSI, however, is at 9/5 – so you’d get £28 back from betting £10.

Yet, anyone who wants to back a second draw between the pair, they’d get substantial outside odds, with most bookmakers offering that at around 10/1.

The odds from OddsChecker as of October 14.

It’s a similar story with bookmakers in the United States, as Bovada opened the odds with Logan slightly edging things as well prior to the press conferences.

Since then, other websites have joined in on the fun – still giving Logan a slight advantage. BetOnline has KSI as a +135 underdog, and his YouTube counterpart as a -165 favorite. Again, betting $10 on KSI would net $23.50, while the same amount on Logan would get $16.06 back.

Of course, these odds are based on what the odd setters can see in terms of ability, size, and where the market is going.

They will, though, fluctuate as the fight draws ever close and who knows, we may even see KSI leading the pack before the two trade blows inside the Staples Centre.
