Povetkin has only lost to Wladimir Klitschko and Anthony Joshua, while he battled to a draw in his last fight with Hunter, who is predicting a disastrous night for Whyte.
"I think Dillian Whyte is going to have some trouble dealing with him," Hunter told Sky Sports. "I think Dillian Whyte is going to lose. I think Dillian Whyte is going to take an L.
"Povetkin will be there to get him. The fight will be at a decent pace. I think it's going to be an interesting fight to see, because the pace is going to be very similar, so I'm probably going to lean towards Povetkin."
I think it's [knockout win for Povetkin] very possible. The percentage is high and that's why I think this is a good fight, because people want to see explosions and I think they're going to get it here, even if it's for two minutes, or it might be for the whole fight.
"We're looking for big punches thrown and I think that's what the fans are excited to see."
Hunter troubled Povetkin with an early onslaught, but the big-hitting veteran staged a determined fightback to prevent defeat on the undercard of Anthony Joshua's rematch win over Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia last December.
The American believes he highlighted vulnerabilities in Povetkin, although Hunter also acknowledged the former WBA champion's ring skills.
He has a veteran experience that goes with him in the ring, definitely," said Hunter.
"Very subtle things that he knows what to do. He has a heart of a lion, that's for sure. Just that alone, a very difficult situation to deal with.
"I think I exposed a lot of stuff. I exposed that he can be easily knocked down in any round. I also exposed that he's not going to lay down.
