Betting Odds Favor Jared Jefferies Over Rob Perez In One-On-One

  • A Twitter feud between Houston Rockets GM Darryl Morey and sports writer Rob Perez led sportsbooks to release 1-on-1 odds.
  • Jeffries has the shortest odds (-750) at online sportsbooks, while the over-under for Perez’s points sit at 4.5.

HOUSTON – In the basketball world, one of the biggest match-ups in history is about to occur.

The 38-year-old retired NBA veteran, Jared Jeffries, may be taking on sportswriter and NBA Twitter personality Rob Perez in a one-on-one game for the ages.

The entire thing started with a back and forth between Perez and Houston Rockets GM Darryl Morey which resulted in Perez claiming he could score five points in a one-on-one game against Jeffries.

Now online sportsbooks are taking action on the potential clash of the titans.

NBA sports bettors at least have some action to wager on as they await the NBA’s return.

Jeffries is the runaway favorite, unsurprisingly, with sports bettors leaning towards real NBA experience and a professional basketball career to trump writing about the sport.

  • Jared Jeffries -750
  • Rob Perez +450

Poor Jeffries was dragged into the back and forth between is former GM and the sportswriter when Perez poked fun at Morey for trading away Tracy McGrady in a trade that resulted in the Rockets securing Jeffries.

A trade that is now considered to be a major blunder in Morey’s resume as Jeffries would go on to average under 5 points per game for Houston.

This resulting in Perez arguing he would be able to score at least 5 points against Jeffries in the potential one-on-one, even hosting a poll for fans to vote.

Sports bettors at BetOnline are actually split on whether or not Perez could come out of the game with at least five points.

  • Over 4 ½ -120
  • Under 4 ½ -120

Although there has been no confirmation or set date for the potential game, Daryl Morey has expressed interest in the event, offering $5,000 to charity.

Whether the two parties meet an agreement and a one-on-one match happens or not, online sportsbooks will be there every step of the way supplying betting lines to all.
