Ruiz vs Joshua 2 Odds: Ruiz is Joshua’s Kryptonite

Despite finishing Joshua decisively, the Ruiz vs Joshua 2 odds once again show oddsmakers underestimating the new Mexican champion. The two are a contrast to each other and their backers are focusing on what makes each unique. 

Ruiz’ is the smaller but heavier boxer. He outweighs Joshua by at least 20 lbs. Though he has a shorter reach, he is more agile and more durable. His endurance is also not an issue as he proved in the first bout. He’ll need to cut the ring again and get inside on Joshua.  

Joshua will be the taller and leaner boxer. He’ll need to use his reach advantage and “dance” around Ruiz, avoiding the phone booth brawls to avoid getting bruised again. If he does this, he should secure a decision even if it’s not exciting.

Whoever implements their gameplan wins, says Captain Obvious. But it’s almost a 50-50 shot. Joshua may have made adjustments but what’s to stop Ruiz from being aggressive and eventually wearing him out?

At these odds, side with Ruiz to once again humble Joshua. 

Ruiz vs Joshua 2: More Bets

There is more action at stake in this rematch. Take a gander at some more Ruiz vs Joshua 2 bets (via Bet365):

Over 7.5 rounds – 1.83

Bet the chalk on this. Heavyweights can end fights quickly, but expect Joshua to fight more defensively resulting in less action than the previous bout. This could be a decision or a late finish.

Ruiz wins by decision -13.00

Ruiz didn’t simply “catch” Joshua, he outboxed him. Despite getting knocked down first, Ruiz outlanded Joshua and had him running. He may not be able to finish Joshua again, but his aggression and nimble hands could win over the judges. 

Betting on Ruiz vs Joshua 2: How to Win

As the first fight show, betting on Ruiz vs Joshua 2 can be trickier than odds indicate. Plenty of chalkers  were shocked to see their cash go up in flames when Ruiz knocked out Joshua. Poor planning and underestimating opponents are what did both Joshua and his backers in. 

To avoid this, you’ll need to do better research than just listening to the talking mouths. Look up both the boxers and the top online sportsbooks. Have a betting budget in mind. There is no such thing as “easy money” in boxing. Take caution and bet strategically.
