Latest Mayweather vs. Paul betting action

UPDATE 9:15 P.M. ET SUNDAY: There's been a surprising shift in money over the weekend at Canadian sportsbook Coolbet, though the odds continue to shorten for tonight's Floyd Mayweather-Logan Paul fight. Coolbet opened the bout at the massive price of Mayweather -5,000/Paul +1,400 and was down to -1,000/+600 Friday night.

At that time, the huge underdog Paul was taking 77 percent of tickets and a whopping 97 percent of money.

Now, shortly before opening bell, it's down to Mayweather -714/Paul +500, even though the big favorite is drawing fast-and-furious final-day action.

"Since Floyd's number has come back to Earth, we're seeing a number of people come in late with bets on Mayweather," Coolbet spokesperson Kris Abbott told Covers. "Fifty-eight percent of total tickets and 79 percent of total money are now on Mayweather, in a dramatic reversal from what we saw (Friday). Risk is dropping fast on Logan Paul as people are hitting the Floyd line heavy."

If the fight started right now, the book would win $10,000 on a Mayweather victory and lose $50,000 on a Paul upset, in a bout that's gotten surprisingly strong interest. As of 9:15 p.m. ET, there were about 4,000 tickets on the fight. And again, while the moneyline is miles shorter than its opening price, the favorite is now commanding attention.

"The only thing I can figure is that value is value, and smart bettors know that getting Mayweather at a reduced number – whether adding it to parlays or laying sizable straight bets – is quite likely to be good for their bankroll. The guy opened at -5,000," Abbott said. "Personally, I'm still going nowhere near this gong show, but it does go to show that people will buy the hype and there's certainly a market out there for these events, even if they don't fit in the tidy box that our industry prefers to play in."

Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul odds analysis

Mayweather is arguably the greatest boxer of all time and hands down the most impenetrable defensive fighter in the sport’s history. Even at 18 years the senior of Paul, Mayweather has never truly been hurt inside the ring and doesn’t have the wear and tear on his body you’d expect from 50 professional fights.  

As for the +500 underdog, Paul has just one "pro" fight under his belt – a spit-decision loss to fellow YouTube star KSI back in November 2019 (six three-minute rounds) – but does have a height and size advantage over the 15-time world champion.

According to sources, the 6-foot-2 Paul must stay below a 190-pound weight limit, while the 5-foot-8 Mayweather can’t weigh in heavier than 160 pounds. Paul also enjoys a four-inch reach advantage (76 vs. 72 inches) over the man known as “Money," who was last seen cashing in a $300-plus million payday against UFC superstar Conor McGregor back in August 2017.

This exhibition is being arranged in the same vein as the McGregor fight: a PPV cash grab capitalizing on the popularity of Paul’s controversial YouTube channel and legions of followers on social media. Official rules, rounds, times, and any additional bells and whistles have not yet been released.

It will be interesting to track the betting patterns heading into this bout, as both combatants hold a bit of "heel" status with fight fans. Mayweather is highly respected by boxing purists, who have nothing but disdain for Paul as well as his younger brother Jake Paul, who is also trying his hand at the sweet science and recently KO'd former MMA fighter Ben Askren on April 17.

Most casual boxing bettors will be scared off by the big price tag on Mayweather to win outright and will either side with the large plus-money payout, hoping the bigger Paul pulls off the upset, or look for a better return on Mayweather with the props odds, which have started to trickle out.

Adding to this bizarre matchup will likely be a laundry list of modified rules and round times, which could make wagering on Paul vs. Mayweather a bigger headache than it's worth. Be sure to know the ins-and-out of this "dog and pony" show as well as house rules for your respective sportsbook before slapping down any of your hard-earned cash on the June 6 fight.

How to read boxing odds

The most common way of betting on a boxing match is by picking the overall winner of the bout. With Mayweather being the clear favorite for this fight, his odds have the minus sign (-) in front of them at -2,000. This means that bettors would need to wager $2,000 in order to win $100. A Paul win would pay out much more as he's the underdog at +900. This means that a $100 wager would profit $900. 

As we get closer to the fight date, round totals and prop bets will be become available, such as method of victory and round betting.
