So in some ways, Jones has more to lose as he is expected to win. I would be willing to bet that if this fight happens Jones is the favorite.
Some of the smaller HWs have been at a size disadvantage (height and weight) with their bigger opponent and yet we've seen the smaller man KO the giant. Jones' youth and size can't be negated as pluses in his favor, but Silva's experience and knowledge are big pluses too. Like they say, you never know what will happen in a fight.
