KSI has poked some fun at rival YouTuber Logan Paul by requesting a bet with leading online bookmaker Betway for his opponent’s girlfriend to throw in the towel when the pair clash on Saturday night.
KSI tweeted the betslip on Wednesday night and Betway have since been inundated with similar #betyourway requests for the weekend’s long-awaited bout. Logan Paul fans hit back by asking to bet on the YouTube personality to win with his third punch (33/1) and to call out Conor McGregor after the fight (5/1), whilst KSI fans have been betting on the internet sensation to walk out to ‘On Point’ at likely odds of 6/4.
#betyourway allows customers to get in touch with the online bookmaker via social media to ask for odds on a specific occurrence, such as KSI to call out Logan Paul’s Dad, which has been priced at 50/1 after a request, and Logan Paul to be disqualified at 25/1.
Betway’s Alan Alger said: “Not only is the KSI v Logan Paul fight huge for their massive YouTube following, it’s also proving a revelation with the betting industry and we’ve been inundated with #betyourway requests.
“KSI’s tweet of a betslip containing the odds of Logan Paul’s girlfriend throwing in the towel has sparked a wave of interest in other things that might occur on the night and our traders are now very busy indeed!
“There’s little form to go on in terms of who’ll come out on top, but KSI has been marginally better backed and is our 4/5 favourite for the fight.”
