BetUS sets betting odds on Kanye – Pete Davidson boxing match


Oddsmakers place Kanye West as an opening favorite in the proposed 6-round, $60 million fight


March 16, 2022 – Online sportsbook BetUS has opened preliminary betting odds on a potential $60 million boxing match between Kanye West and Pete Davidson, after Youtuber-turned-boxer and boxing promoter, Jake Paul offered on Monday a guaranteed $30 million to each of the men for a proposed 6-round bout.  


Betting opened today on with Kanye West, who legally changed his name to Ye last year, as a -170 favorite to win the proposed fight.  Pete Davidson, meanwhile, is currently listed as a +130 underdog.

Paul’s $60 million prize fight offer came after Kanye slammed his ex-wife Kim's new beau, Pete Davidson, for taunting him in a series of text messages in which the SNL comedian claimed to be texting the rapper while in bed with is ex-wife.  


Currently, Kanye West is favored by -120 to “win by decision or technical decision.” 


“Our oddsmakers always take into account all the available data on each fighter when calculating opening odds – even in this case.  Things like the fighters’ height – where Davidson has the advantage – and weight, where Kanye has the advantage – as well as public sentiment, fighting experience; are just a few of the factors they take into consideration.  However, betting lines often move, sometimes drastically, as betting action comes in.  Sometimes, the favorite and underdog can even reverse, depending upon the betting pattern of the public,” said Tim Williams, Director of Public Relations at BetUS.      


But will the fight actually happen? “$30 million is a lot of cash to anyone, including Kanye,” Williams said. “That sort of money would probably increase Pete Davidson’s net worth by at least four times over, and by most estimates would even increase Kanye’s liquid net worth by about ten percent.  It has to be tempting for both of them, even if for different reasons.”


So far, neither West (who legally changed his name to Ye in 2021) nor Davidson have publicly confirmed if they intend to settle their beef in the boxing ring.  “But that isn’t stopping our customers from betting on the match already,” Williams added. “So far, we’re the only sportsbook offering odds on the potential matchup, but others are sure to follow us, as they often do.”
