If for some reason you haven’t heard, this year’s Academy Awards was stunned when A-list actor Will Smith, who played Muhammad Ali in the 2001 film Ali, left Fresh Prince across the face of comedian, actor, and host of the Oscars — Chris Rock.

The viral moment has generated a great deal of attention, including YouTube star turned prize fighter, Jake Paul, offering up $15M a piece for a boxing bout between the two. Guess what? There’s now betting odds for this Smith vs. Rock matchup.

Online gambling site SportsBetting.ag has the larger man in Smith opening up as a staggering -3000 betting favorite, with a much smaller Rock clocking in with a sizable underdog line of +900. The website states that this scrap must happen in 2022 for action. I could sit here and say that this fight would would never happen, but I’m convinced that probability is broken, so all bets are off.
