If you’re gearing up for Saturday’s quickly approaching mega-fight between undefeated five-division boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. and reigning UFC welterweight champion Conor McGregor and you want to know all about the multitude of ways you can bet on the intriguing matchup, then consider your ticket punched. Here’s the rundown on each and every way possible for you to bet on the boxing odds for Mayweather vs. McGregor bout.
Counting Ways For Betting on Mayweather vs. McGregor
Total rounds: 9.5Over 9.5 +145Under 9.5 -170 Analysis: This is a simple wager you make on whether the fight will go over or under 9.5 rounds. While Mayweather hasn’t finished off an opponent inside the distance since way back in 2011, I’ve got a feeling Conor McGregor is going to make Floyd Mayweather fight him – and finish him off before the final bell.
Method of victoryC. McGregor by KO* +550C. McGregor decision +3000 (30-1)F. Mayweather by KO* -160F. Mayweather by decision +180Draw +5000 (50-1)Analysis: If you correctly predict the outcome of Saturday’s fight, you could cash in big – especially if you pick McGregor to win by way of a decision outcome – and it actually happens!
Will C. McGregor win in Rounds 1-4?Yes +800No -1400 Analysis: If you like the UFC champ to pull off the huge upset inside of the first four rounds and it actually happens, a $100 wager will bring you a whopping $800 return, although it’s a virtual impossibility of this outcome happening.
Will C. McGregor win in Rounds 5-8?Yes +1100No -2500 Analysis: I guess it’s possible that the younger and stronger Conor McGregor could always land the proverbial ‘puncher’s luck’ blow that finishes off the unbeaten champion, but seeing as how no one has been able to pull off this feat before – or even beat Mayweather for that matter.
Will C. McGregor win in Rounds 9-12?Yes +1800No -8000Analysis: Could McGregor pull off the late upset over the unbeaten Floyd Mayweather? Um…I don’t see it, but then again, the UFC champ is younger and stronger.
Will F. Mayweather win in Rounds 1-4?Yes +350No -450Analysis: The last time Mayweather finished off an opponent inside of four rounds was way, way back in 1998 when he put a third round TKO beatdown on Miguel Melo, who is either related to Fab Melo or Carmelo Anthony, depending on which ‘Melo’ you like better.
Will F. Mayweather win in Rounds 5-8?Yes +240No -300Analysis: Again, the last time Mayweather finished off an opponent between the fifth and eighth round was back in 1998 Genaro Hernandez retired in the eighth round, probably due to sheer exhaustion from chasing the unbeaten champ around the ring.
Will F. Mayweather win in Rounds 9-12?Yes +350No -450 Analysis: The last time Mayweather won between the ninth and 12th rounds was back in 2000 when he put a TKO finish on Emanuel Augustus, who was either a Roman emperor, physician or botanist if I’ve got my history correct.
Total Rounds: McGregor-MayweatherOver 0.5 -3000Under 0.5 +1200Over 1.5 -1400Under 1.5 +800Over 2.5 -650Under 2.5 +450Analysis: If you’re expecting a Mike Tyson first round finish that takes place over a half-round, damn, you could get paid big-time. If you like the bout to be stopped between either first or second half of the ensuing two rounds, there’s still a huge haul waiting for you. Just remember, you’ve got to pick this one just right in order to cash in!
