Tyson Fury vs. Dillion Whyte Betting Picks

Tyson Fury returns to the ring one more time — and perhaps for the last time— against Dillon Whyte on April 23 at Wembley Stadium in London, England. The heavyweight championship fight is packed with betting opportunities but only a few are really worth your time and money. Keep reading on to get our Tyson Fury vs. Dillion Whyte betting picks, completely free of cost!

Canada’s best sportsbooks don’t seem to think the fight will be overly competitive. As it stands, Fury is a heavy betting favourite to win on the moneyline bet. The betting odds can always change from now until bell time, but here’s how the sportsbooks are currently pegging the big fight:

As you can see, there’s not a whole lot of money to be made betting the moneyline — that is, unless you're picking Whyte to pull off the shocking upset. But don’t worry, there’s betting value elsewhere in this matchup. We’ll get to that soon, but first, let’s see what we’re getting into in the first place.

Fury vs. Whyte Preview

As with any heavyweight bout, you have to start with power when previewing the Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) vs. Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs) bout. Both men certainly have heavy hands, and chins that have touched the canvas recently. Fury, of course, went to war with Deontae Wilder three times and was dropped four total times. Whyte’s two losses were also by stoppage (including one to Anthony Joshua).

While Whyte can hit, it’s nowhere near the level of, say, Wilder, which gives us doubts about how much damage he can actually inflict on Fury. Whyte uses his jab to set up his offence, but it certainly won’t be easy to get inside of Fury’s own jab. Making matters worse for Whyte is the size disparity between the two. At 6-foot-9, Fury is four inches taller and likewise, has a six-inch reach advantage over Whyte.

If we’re being completely honest, it’s tough to find any sort of edge for Whyte in this matchup. He’s not bigger, he’s not more experienced, he’s not more technical, he doesn’t hit harder. Nothing. It would be a complete stunner if Fury loses his “swan song” fight if his retirement talk is real.

Best Fury vs. Whyte Bets To Make

While we’re predicting a Fury win, we don’t think you should touch his moneyline. No way. At those odds, it’s the definition of a high-risk, low-reward bet which is a big no-no. Anything can happen in boxing — including a perfect, finishing punch from Whyte to Fury — which makes those types of bets dangerous. Save your money and use it on the two best Fury vs. Whyte bets we’ve selected below.

Fight Outcome Prop

There’s much more money to be made in picking not only who wins, but exactly how they win. This is the exact fight outcome wager and your betting options are as follows:

Whyte To Win By KOTKO or DQ6.00
Whyte To Win By Decision23.0023.00

We’ve already said Fury is winning come April, but how — decision or stoppage? We lean strongly on the latter. That’s because Fury’s become more aggressive as he’s aged. The flip-the-switch moment for Fury, ironically, was in the first Wilder bout when he was knocked out in the 12th round. Not only did he get up before the ten count (a small miracle given the thunderous blow Wilder hit him with), but he went on the attack against the most powerful heavyweight hitter since Mike Tyson.

Fury said, at this moment, it’s when he realized he needed to press Wilder, which he would successfully do the following two fights. We expect Fury to unload a similar type of offensive flurry on Whyte, a fighter that doesn’t have one-punch KO power like Wilder. That should give Fury more confidence (as if he needed any more) to stop Whyte for the victory.

Take Alternative Over/Under 8.5 Rounds

There are all sorts of alternative bets on the over/under of the fight. Odds differ wildly from bet to bet, but we’re honing in on the 8.5 rounds option. Here’s how the current betting line stands:

Over 8.5 Rounds1.671.67
Under 8.5 Rounds2.102.10

Remember before when we mentioned Whyte has been finished twice before? Welp, each time came before the eighth round. Joshua TKO’d Whyte in the seventh (way back in 2015) and more recently, Alexander Povetkin stopped him in the fifth (in August 2020). The soon-to-be 34-year-old is prone to be dispatched quickly, which is what we expect Fury to do.

Take the under 8.5 rounds here. Remember, Fury is billing this as his retirement fight. You don’t think the Gypsy Ling wants to go out in a bang in front of a partisan crowd at Wembley? Of course, he does, because this is a legacy fight for him. Win again, especially in convincing fashion, and Fury is the best heavyweight of his generation, without question. Expect to see the best of Fury come to this title match.
