Are you going to watch Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg fight?
The recent proposal of a cage match between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg reminded us of the absurdity of our current reality.
While Musk may seem to have an advantage with his height and assumed weight over Zuckerberg, the latter has a history in jiu-jitsu.
Even Musk’s mother warned him against the physical conflict.
Sportsbooks have varying odds and opinions on the hypothetical match, with some listing Zuckerberg as the favored winner and others siding with Musk.
Zuckerberg as a -500 favorite and Musk as a +300 underdog. DraftKings took the same stance but was slightly more measured with a spread giving the former -160 and the latter +140.
From DK’s Director of Race & Sports Operations, the legendary Johnny Avello:
Zuckerberg is 12 years younger and has taken part in an intensive challenge in which he ran a mile, completed 100 pull-ups, 200 press-ups and 300 squats, before running a further mile, all while wearing a 9kg weighted vest. He also has been training in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. Musk also dabbles in taekwondo, karate, judo & jiu-jitsu.
I have this great move that I call “The Walrus”, where I just lie on top of my opponent & do nothing

It’s unlikely the bout will ever occur, but if it did, betting on Zuck seems like a wise choice.
