A Look At Mayweather Vs McGregor Boxing Betting Props
In spots, it’s not very often that we get to see two worlds collide in a single event, but that is exactly what is going to happen when boxing and MMA collide on August 26th. This is a fight that has everybody talking and rumoring for it to happen for a while, but now the odds for Mayweather vs McGregor are up and you can start betting on them.
There are plenty of folks in the fight business who believe it should never happen. After all, you have a career boxer, and an unbeaten one at that, in Floyd Mayweather going against a guy who makes money in the UFC.
It is McGregor who has the toughest task here, as he is going to have to ditch many of the moves that makes him a success in the Octagon, focusing instead on pure boxing. It would appear to be a recipe for disaster for the Irishman, but as every time we get and announcement of this fight, a lot of folks are currently continue dropping money on McGregor to win, even though he is a rank outsider at +515, while Mayweather is -735.
That’s a huge swing in odds, but if you don’t fancy a straight up win bet, there are several boxing betting props to choose from. Let’s take a look at a few of them.
A Look at Mayweather Vs McGregor Boxing Betting Props
In Which Round Will The Fight Be Over?
Over the weekend, video emerged of Conor McGregor sparring with another fighter, and the footage was not particularly convincing, as his partner was able to get in and land a number of big blows. If a guy used solely for sparring purposes could land big blows, what will Mayweather be able to do?
There are some folks out there who believe that McGregor is playing a game here, and is releasing a video that makes him look bad so that Mayweather will drop his guard a little coming into the fight. This information makes choosing a finishing round tough to pick out. The odds do not seem to suggest that the bookies believe this one will be over quickly, as the odds for a first round knockout are at +2300 for Mayweather and +3300 for McGregor.
If you believe that video is a sign that McGregor is just not ready to box against a fighter of the caliber of Mayweather, then those odds may seem particularly juicy to you. At +120, the odds for Mayweather to win by decision is the least you can make on this particular prop.
Exact Method of Victory on Boxing Betting
Choosing the exact round that the fight will finish in is no easy task, but figuring out how the fight will end may be a little easier, and there is still some good money to be made with this prop if you get it right.
In addition, Mayweather has the best odds to win the fight vs. McGregor, so let’s look at the boxing betting odds for each of the ways in which he can potentially win this fight. You are getting +140 for a unanimous decision, +200 for the TKO, +250 for the KO, and +2300 for the split decision win.
A worthwhile bet here may be the +800 for an opponent disqualification, especially when you consider that Conor McGregor is essentially changing sports, and may make mistakes that cost him points, and potentially the fight by DQ. The prices on McGregor to win are particularly juicy, and they all begin with a +10000 for him to win by unanimous decision. You can also get +1000 for a TKO and +900 for a KO. Keep in mind here that McGregor has gone the KO or TKO route in 86% of his MMA fights.
The majority decision odds are at +6500, while the split decision odds are at +8000. A DQ win is not likely to be a factor here, but if you believe that this thing might end in a draw, you can get that prop at +2800.
Will The Fight Go The Distance?
This is a simple yes or no prop, and I have to say that I am all over the NO at -175. If you think McGregor can hang for the 12 rounds, or that he can land a killer punch, then take the YES at +125.
