Wilder vs Helenius Boxing Odds Favor American

The Heavyweights Collide in Brooklyn

It’s all about the former champion with Wilder vs Helenius boxing odds for Saturday’s fight between two quality heavyweights. Deontay Wilder hasn’t fought since losing back-to-back fights against Tyson Fury, but the American shouldn’t be slept on. Neither should Helenius, who is 31-3 and has been beating the ranked fighters on his way near the top on boxing schedules.

Wilder Not Taking Helenius Lightly

“I always want a good matchup,” Wilder Boxing Scene. “You know what I mean? And Robert, he’s been on a winning streak and he’s here. You know what I mean? I’ve been hearing he’s supposed to be the mandatory for Usyk or however that is laid out or whatever. So, I know he’s coming with his A-plus-plus-plus [game]. You know what I mean? They always do when they fight me.”

Confidence has never been lacking for Wilder, but he’s not taking Helenius lightly ahead of a hugely important fight.

If Wilder loses, he can kiss his fight with Joshua goodbye and it would see his appeal drop drastically. However, The Bronze Bomber has lost to only one man throughout his career and it wasn’t Helenius.

“I always want a good matchup,” Wilder Boxing Scene. “You know what I mean? And Robert, he’s been on a winning streak and he’s here. You know what I mean? I’ve been hearing he’s supposed to be the mandatory for Usyk or however that is laid out or whatever. So, I know he’s coming with his A-plus-plus-plus [game]. You know what I mean? They always do when they fight me.”

Losing to Fury was expected, but he dominated every opponent before The Gypsy King. He knocked out Luis Ortiz twice, Dominic Breazeale, and Gerald Washington.

Those who bet on boxing have had a good time following Wilder. He’s the -800 favorite with Wilder vs Helenius boxing odds, which is a fair price for the former champion.

We expected Wilder to be shorter in betting markets, but he’s -450 to win by knockout and that’s the likely result.

Helenius Climbing Mountain

The Finnish boxer rebounded from a loss to Washington with three consecutive wins over Mateus Osorio and twice against Adam Kownacki.

We have concerns that he lost to Washington, who was knocked out by Wilder, so does he have enough power to knock Wilder down to the canvas?

We don’t think so, but the 31-3 fighter deserves his chance and the +500 boxing odds underdog is talented enough to cause an upset.

“I have this worker mentality,” Helenius said. “I tend to grind through stuff, just do my best, and see where I land.

“Keep on grinding, keep on doing your thing and I think things will turn out good in the end no matter how bad you feel in the middle.” Despite Wilder vs Helenius boxing odds being against him, Helenius is a confident fighter, and if he can avoid getting rocked early, he could outscore Wilder.

If Wilder doesn’t end the fight in the first six or seven rounds, he doesn’t have much left in the tank. Helenius’s best chance of winning is by outscoring his opponent, so bettors could entertain the +1200 to win by decision.

We’re surprised his odds to win by decision are much higher than his odds to win by knockout, but either way, this is Wilder’s fight to lose and we don’t think it’s going to happen.
