Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 3 props, odds: Boxing expert reveals predictions, best bets for trilogy fight


Legacies could be on the line Saturday when WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and former title-holder Deontay Wilder square off in the boxing ring for the third time. The long-awaited trilogy bout tops the boxing card from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and the main card is set for 9 p.m. ET. The undefeated Fury can move toward becoming recognized as the best heavyweight of this generation with another win over Wilder, whom he stopped in their February 2020 rematch following a split draw in the first meeting. With another loss to Fury, Wilder’s critics can further the narrative that he is a one-dimensional knockout artist who padded his record against meager competition. But an upset of Fury would be his signature victory and would ignite a greater respect for Wilder, who successfully defended the title 10 times as champion.

Fury is a -280 favorite (risk $280 to win $100), while Wilder is listed at +230 in the latest Fury vs. Wilder III odds from Caesars Sportsbook. The Fury vs. Wilder props on the board include options for duration of the fight, method of victory and more. Before making any Fury vs. Wilder III picks or bets, make sure you check out the boxing predictions and betting advice from SportsLine combat analyst Brandon Wise. 

Wise, who is the combat sports editor for CBS Sports, is an experienced boxing analyst. His strong 2021 boxing record includes correctly calling victories for social-media-star-turned-boxing-phenom Jake Paul over former UFC fighters Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley. Moreover, the respected combat analyst also called Jamel Herring (+105) to defeat Carl Frampton (-125) for the WBO junior lightweight title in April. Anyone who has followed Wise’s combat sports picks has seen massive returns. 

Now, with Saturday’s fight fast approaching, Wise has studied Fury vs. Wilder 3 from every angle and identified the best value in the Wilder vs. Fury props. You can check out his confident prop picks and his money-line selection at SportsLine. 

Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder III preview 

In the aftermath of his loss in the rematch, Wilder memorably fired trainer Mark Breland because Breland threw in the towel to signal the referee to stop the fight. Many observers viewed the move as a pride-driven and hasty dismissal of an accomplished trainer and former WBA welterweight champion, but Wilder has insisted the changes he has made in his camp are for the better.

Wilder hired a new chief trainer in Malik Scott, a former opponent who Wilder knocked out in the first round of their March 2014 fight. Scott retired from fighting following a lopsided loss to Luis Ortiz in 2016 and his position with Wilder’s team marks his first as a professional trainer. Wilder retained well-regarded trainer Jay Deas and cut man Don House, who also has worked with several UFC fighters.

In order to get proper sparring from an opponent with a similar build to Fury, Wilder brought in 6-foot-7 heavyweight Robert Helenius, a former European boxing champion who has been in the ring with some of the sport’s top names. Helenius notably knocked out top-10 contender Adam Kownacki in March of last year and will fight a rematch with him on the undercard of Saturday’s main event. 

How to make Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 3 picks
