Boxing Odds: Even More Ways to Bet McGregor-Mayweather

Can Conor McGregor pull off the impossible? The reigning UFC Lightweight champion will be in his first professional boxing match this Saturday against Floyd Mayweather Jr. (49-0, 26 KOs), and at press time, McGregor’s odds are all the way down to +300. Mayweather is a –400 favorite, as he was for his victories over Shane Mosley and Arturo Gatti.

With so many people interested in Saturday’s fight, the props market is treating it like the Super Bowl, giving us 115 different ways to bet on McGregor vs. Mayweather. Will there be a point deducted? ‘Yes’ is available at +165. Will McGregor throw a kick during this match? ‘Yes’ is an even bigger underdog at +700; the kick has to lead to a point deduction or a disqualification for it to count.

Meanwhile, McGregor’s odds for the popular “Inside 4 Rounds” special have improved. The Irish sensation has moved from +600 to +500 to beat Mayweather before the end of Round 4, as he predicted – and his chances at an early knockout may have improved after the Nevada State Athletic Commission allowed the fighters to wear 8-ounce gloves for this match, instead of the regulation 10 ounces for light middleweight. Who knows how long McGregor vs Mayweather fight will last ?

Boxing Odds: McGregor-Mayweather on Pace to Shatter Records

Saturday’s hotly anticipated boxing match between Floyd Mayweather Jr. (–400) and UFC Lightweight champion Conor McGregor (+300) looks like it will indeed become the biggest fight of all-time. The ‘over’ is still favored on the total of 4.99 million PPV buys, although the line has moved down to –175.

Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs) said at Wednesday’s news conference that there was a “100% chance” this mega-fight won’t go the distance, reiterating his claim that he’ll knock McGregor out. Now that they’ll be wearing 8-ounce gloves, McGregor says he’ll knock out Mayweather within two rounds instead of four.
