Mayweather IMO should be a -1500 Fave.......Right now he is -800 @ 5dimes .....Also only -125 to win by TKO / KO and the over under is at 9.5 rounds.......These lines will will slowly change making Mayweather a heavier Fave as we get closer to the fight.

Mcgregor will get absolutely schooled in this fight.....Mcgregor will land very few punches......Mayweather will put on a boxing clinic and beat the hell out of Mcgregor....This is a spectacle not a real boxing match....Mcgregor is a great stand-up fighter in MMA but he has never been in a boxing match......I also believe Mayweather would last less than 1 round if he fought a MMA bout vs Mcgregor.
I cant see Mcgregor making the 9th round of this fight.....Mayweather does not have the power he used to have but the quantity of the punches he will land will stop this fight before the 9th round.....Mcgregor will not win one round......I am going to sprinkle some large wagers on Mayweather and some of these props........This just seems too easy........The majority of the public will be on the underdog Mcgregor not because of his boxing skills but who he is..They are betting on his character and confidence and his MMA success as well as their dislike for Mayweather......They are betting on emotions and not common sense.....Eventually the sharp big money will come in on Mayweather.

Good luck fellas

A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME 

 Exhibition 

Watching Floyd dance around until he wins by points , or knocks out someone who is out of his league/sport

MAYWEATHER is a clown who would have lost 4-5+ fights in the 80's

I meant to say Floyd should should be a -2500 fave........Mcgregor has not been in one boxing match and Mayweather has never lost one (49-0)......This is a joke.

Stanford - Rice - I have 1.5U on Rice......That kind of travel may equalize this game to a small  extent.....Really like rice and those 34 points.

Normally I prefer college football 100X over vs boxing but this is just business.....I will have too much money invested not to watch it......Rice/Stanford will be taped.

Good luck fellas

throw it in a parlay just for grins......?.

Will Floyd fight?.........MAYBE
  *his hands too brittle? >> might just dance

McGregor tho HAS to force the action QUICKLY.....knowing he can't outbox Floyd......and knowing he can't go 12 rounds.....

SO highly unlikely the fight goes the full 12.....'inside the distance' is -250 or so

Mayweather is down to -600 at youwager.

I have given a few lengthy write-ups on why Connor can create some problems in this one...... but at only +450????

Looks like the Irish handle rules the betting world........

-610/+460 at Bookmaker. Over under 9.5


I like the prop bet: Will Mcgregor/Mayweather break PPV record of 4.4 million buys? -268 yes, +216 no.

Have they even priced the PPV yet? Seems like if they charge 100 bucks or so, then I take no.......

Why would anybody waste a nickel betting on McGregor?...especially at +450. This would be like if GSP went from MMA and wrestled Jordan Burroughs(Olympic Gold Medalist at 74kg). GSP had the best takedowns in the UFC but would win exactly 0 out of 100 wrestling matches against Burroughs. Just lay what you are comfortable with on Mayweather and enjoy the free money plain and simple. I will be waiting until closer to fight night because McGregor will move the line in his favor a bit more after he verbally abuses Mayweather the next two months

Do not wait to bet on Mayweather.........Right now its almost like free money and very large amounts of money will be put on Floyd. while a lot of small money will come in on Mcgregor I believe this line will be at least -1800 in a week....Mayweather will destroy this guy.........I would go so far as to say Mcgregor will not connect more than 3 times on average per round. I doubt that he lands any clean power shots.

This one is a GREAT eggzample.....where EMOTIONS are getting in the way of PURE / SIMPLE LOGIC....
  *lotsa folks wanna see FM get pounded here...


It seems like many are ignoring the HUGE concessions that CM made to just get this massive payday......IF he could use his 4oz gloves / fight under MMA rules........OKEY DOKEY

But NO.....10 ox gloves / boxing rules......he literally has ZERO chance......unless he loses it and kicks him in the head (worth the PPV $ to see that maybe)......Canelo hits HARD....see that one (vs FM)?
  *Canelo would beat the hell outta CM.....(boxing rules) . 

Being that CM will probably wear himself out EARLY.......finding FM very tough to hit...then .becoming a VERY easy target for FM say rd 7-8........FM (should) finish him ITD (-195 not bad).....he's got 26 KO's / nothing last 5 yrs or so   
  *under 9' not bad maybe either.......I'm not gonna do it because I might destroy my TV if they played grab-azz for 12 > took the $ and ran..................

Does NOT take much to move the line 

-350 Inside the distance 

+250 Goes the distance 

MAYWEATHER INSIDE THE DISTANCE -195

MCGREGOR INSIDE THE DISTANCE +510

MAYWEATHER WINS BY DECISION 12 RDS  +293



You might be on to something with these open ended parlays

You might be right... but the article I read said once there was a date set the sharps would hammer this line and move it. Still hasn't happened yet and I think there will be more and more bets on CM as the summer goes on

THIS......is probably the ONLY way to look at this one.....
  *I do like it to finish ITD

BUT......holy crap forgot about this POSSIBLITY..............


NOT SAYING IT'S GONNA HAPPEN.....but as a gambler you (should) consider.....IT MIGHT
  *RECALL.....these guys are crooked as hell anyway...plus many here think games are fixed in CFB.....but not BOXING wtf?.... (only 2 involved  > easy)

What is THE most  important thing in FM's life?......rep / legacy sure.....but it's MONEY........he's made a lot > but spends a ton
  *this one will make him a TON.....but not as much as a REMATCH..........

WHY.....as someone that bets huge anyway.....would he not throw this one.....maybe (somehow) place a few huge side wagers on CM....set up a MONTROUS payday for FM / CM 2.....he's still 49-1

OR.....why would they not get together.....IT HAPPENS
  * FM : "I'm gonna let u win EARLY....then I get to kick your azz in the rematch"......that's 2 more fights for both > they're done 

SO....before you lay a bunch down on FM to win this one.....in  a (what looks like) 'can't lose bet'............just consider this possibility........

Why spend a 100 bucks to watch Floyd outpoint & run from Conor.When I hear the comparison of Tiger playing Sampras any tennis I literally fall out of my chair laughing it's so ridiculous.I think a baseball player is more accurate.Conor was an amateur boxing champion & his striking is his strong point.Do I think Conor will win ? Prolly not,but Conor's straight left can almost floor anybody.I think Conor does win a round and that's a prop Im sure they will have & my guess is u can get it at a decent price.DC/Bones2 &/or Conor/ Ferguson or The Eagle interests me much more than this circus.Im sure I will watch it on YouTube shortly after it's over.

He is the best defensive fighter bc he is fighting bums 

Way too many other sports now for Most top athletes to even consider boxing 

Dont think he beats any of these 

Roberto Duran

Sugar Ray Leonard

Hit Man Hearns 

Marvin Hagler 

wilfredo benitez

These have to be the most laughable odds of all time.

I thought Pacman vs. Mayweather odds of -200 Floyd were a JOKE.

49-0 vs 0-0. Seriously. What is going on a the betting window for these odds to DROP? 

There's no use endorsing them because in their own right they are so sky high but my god, what is going on? Wasn't Tyson AT LEAST -3000/-6000 vs Buster Douglas, a real BOXER (and a giant too)? And this is -600, possibly 5 to ten time LESS????? 

War eagle, didn't you bet on that fight or at least know the odds? I think it was you who told me them in GD since...

IF CM were serious about boxing, then I think he would have fought some lesser fighters than FM to get some experience.

If CM wins, it would definitely be by knockout because there is no way he can outpoint FM.

That being said, FM has no incentive to knockout CM.  Just dance, rack up points and win a decision.

I personally think 50-0 means more to FM than a rematch after a loss but who knows, maybe FM spent all his money...

I know BD was a 50-1 longshot, so Tyson must have been 1-100.

But back in the day, Tyson was obliterating people and BD was a relative unknown.  CM has a lot of MMA fans backing him as well as Irishmen....they are probably thinking CM is too strong and just needs to land 1 punch,  It is probably worth it to a lot of people to bet a couple hundred in case CM wins, to have bragging rights.

SO.....the prospect of making (MAYBE)......500 million for ONE fight....won't even get his attention?..................
  *fascinating Thorpe

IF....this fight hits the PPV/other projections......he can make around 400 million for THIS fight..... when all said and done
  *125 million for CM
  *so 500 mil a reasonable projection

PLUS.....who's he gonna fight after this?.....how bout CM?....what's he do?......after making 75-100 here...go back to making a few mil in MMA....risking serious injury?

AND.....imagine the betting volume for the rematch.................

Mayweather could have lost to Pacman and had two more huge rematches.  Why didn't he?  Losing to Pacman is a lot more respectable than CM.

If FM loses to CM, his whole legacy is in the toilet. 

CM probably isn't going back to MMA no matter what.  I could see him doing action movies.

BECAUSE.....then he had more fights left......more money to make
  *his HUGE money opps are more limited now....why TF do you think he's fighting an MMA guy?....what's next.....a freakin' kangaroo?


ONCE AGAIN.....incredibly Thorpe......you're missing the point
  *idea is for those thinking of FM here as a CAN'T LOSE.....to consider the possibility ..........that's all......not making a PREDICTION that he'll actually do it 

OR.....maybe you're right.....(close) to a BILLION dollars for 2 fights (potentially)...probably has little interest to Floyd MONEY Mayweather....
