The oddsmakers have Paul as the slight favorite over Rahman in next month's collision. Having said that, Paul has worse odds to win this fight than when he went up against former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley (-350) back in December.

Jake Paul vs Hasim Rahman Jr. Prediction

Even though Paul has surprised people with the undefeated start to his career, he could be challenged by his upcoming opponent. Unlike Paul's previous foes, Rahman isn't a washed-up MMA fighter, former basketball player or YouTuber. He actually has an impressive boxing background and holds six knockouts to his name.

Paul might be the favorite, but I could see Rahman being hungry enough to pull off an upset in one of the world's biggest arenas, Madison Square Garden. Keeping that in mind, I'm going with Rahman at +188 on the moneyline.
