To say Andy Ruiz is a massive favorite heading into his fight with Chris Arreola would be an understatement. Neither oddsmakers nor bettors are giving Arreola much of a chance of pulling out a win.
Sportsbooks are giving Ruiz -2000 odds, or an implied 95.2% chance to win the fight. The former Heavyweight champion has also seen 91.6% of bets placed on him over the last 7 days. Meanwhile, Arreola is given just +1000 odds, or an implied 9.1% chance to win the fight. Bettors are even more brutal, as only 8.4% of bets have been place don Arreola the last week.
Quote from OddsChecker spokesman Kyle Newman, “The love for Andy Ruiz is understandable. He’s a former world champion with just two losses, both by decision in world title fights, on his resume. Meanwhile, Chris Arreola is 2-2 in his last four fights. Arreola doesn’t inspire much confidence leading up to this fight, but stranger things have happened. Ruiz himself had way longer odds against Anthony Joseph when he won the title, Ruiz was +1200 to Joseph’s -3500.”
