Wilder vs Stiverne: Odds not surprising

As of Dec 29, challenger Deontay Wilder is a slim (-150 to -175) favorite to unseat defending WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne (24-1-1, 21 KOs) on January 17 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
A wager of $100 on the champion will earn sums ranging from $120 to $130.

It's no surprise the odds favor Wilder.

His outstanding record of 32 wins 0 losses and 32 knockouts isn't easy to ignore. Moreover, not only has Wilder knocked out all of his opponents, he's done so within four rounds. None of his 32 foes have seen Round 5.

Don't expect things to change much between now and fight time unless a fighter is much heavier or lighter than usual at the weigh in.

And while some may insist the odds aren't big enough, Stiverne has two solid wins over a focused, determined Chris Arreola and boasts explosive power and a sturdy beard.
