The lines team here at MyBookie have set the early lines heavily in favor of Mayweather at -805, and pegged a Macgregor upset to pay out a generous +555.
If you’re a risk taking gambler then your $100 moneyline bet on Macgregor would net you a healthy $525. Increase your wager to $1000 and you’ll be netting a cool $5550.
Taking the safe bet with Mayweather may be less risky at this point but in order to profit you’ll be looking at a much larger bet at $750 to win $100. The risk? Macgregor wins or draws and your larger “safe” bet with Macgregor is now gone, up in smoke.
Betting the Over/Under : Mayweather vs Mcgregor
In an over-under bet, you are merely predicting if this fight will last shorter or longer than the number of rounds posted above. Remember, you’re not picking the winner, you are picking the number of rounds the fight last.
Over/Under as of June 15, 2017 (note: lines are subject to change and the live line above is the most current version)
The MyBookie oddsmakers are favoring a fight longer than 9.5 rounds giving -130 odds on a longer fight. Given Mayweather’s defensive fighting style, we could see this match going the distance.
The alternative is a fierce offensive fight from Macgregor. If Macgregor launches his normal brutal attacks and is able to crack Floyd Mayweather’s defense look for the under, at 9.5 rounds and +110 odds.
This is a tight over/under meaning this fight could go either way according to our sports betting experts.
Remember: who wins the fight is irrelevant in over-under betting.
Floyd Mayweather : Facts, Record and Odds
Mayweather has amassed a 49-0 professional record not by being a knockout artist but rather by being one of the best defensive boxers in history.
His last fight against Andre Berto on Sept. 12, 2015 went all 12 rounds, even though Mayweather was the far superior fighter. Look for Mayweather to back off and try to wear Macgregor over the 12 round bout.
His mega-fight with Manny Pacquiao four months earlier went the distance, as have his last seven fights. His most recent knockout, when he sent Victor Ortiz to the canvas in 2011, was considered by some to be a cheap shot.
Can Mayweather fend of the attacks of Conor Macgregor for the duration of the fight or will Macgregor break through the defense? A win for Mayweather by knockout, technical knockout or disqualification is considered to be the most likely scenario, though it’s far from a given.
Connor Macgregor : Facts, Record and Odds
If McGregor is going to defeat Mayweather, it’s going to happen to be with a knockout.
His only prayer is to catch the undefeated boxer with the left hand that has made him so dominant in UFC. McGregor has +700 odds to win by knockout, technical knockout or disqualification. McGregor’s odds to win on points drop to +3300.
Most of McGregor’s UFC fights have ended early, via knockout or submission. He knocked out Eddie Alvarez in the second round of the UFC 205 main event on Nov. 12 to win the 155-pound title.
Less than three months earlier, Macgregor fought to a five-round decision victory over Nate Diaz, getting redemption after tapping out to Diaz at UFC 196 on March 5, 2016.
Placing early bets on these early Mayweather vs. Mcgregor boxing odds is a solid wagering strategy. The closer we get to the fight, the more variable and betting uncertainty will exist, now is the time to bet on boxing at MyBookie.
