McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather Betting Odds Shifting

Mayweather vs. Mcgregor Betting Odds

The Mayweather vs. McGregor betting odds suggest this fight is nothing more than a foregone conclusion with Floyd Mayweather as short as $1.18 to win the 12 round bout. Many punters think Mayweather is a sure thing and so is seen as being outstanding betting value.

Floyd MayweatherMixed Martial Arts (MMA) fans are expecting Conor McGregor to have a punchers chance against Floyd Mayweather Jr. this August, when “The Notorious” crosses over to the ‘sweet science’ of boxing for a whopping $100m payday, are probably going to witness nothing more than a clinic in striking and defence from Mayweather.

Mayweather may be 40-years old, but he’s still a savage beast in the gym, making mincemeat of the heavy bag in new training footage and looking very sharp and strong in sparring against considerably bigger guys than him.

In short, Mayweather is on another playing field when it comes to pure boxing. In pure fighting however, it isn’t a contest as McGregor would wrap around him like an anaconda and rain an unholy flurry of elbows into his face!

This is very much a different environment to the UFC cage and the Mayweather vs. McGregor betting odds for the fight are reflective of this notion, but Mayweather should probably be even more of a cert than the odds imply.
