Mayweather McGregor Prop Bets

Big Fight Prop Bets

Floyd Mayweather has been perfect throughout his boxing career, but could that come to an end when the five-division world champion puts an unblemished 49-0 record on the line Aug. 26 against mixed martial arts challenger Conor McGregor?

Mayweather is a clear-cut favorite (-680) heading into the bout and many believe arguably the best boxer in history will pick apart his opponent round-by-round at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas next month. Mayweather’s father — Floyd Sr. — feels the same way and said Conor “McGregory” is in for a world of hurt when the two combat sport stars face off.

“I can tell you right now, Floyd is what you call the ‘master of the game’ and it’s something Conor McGregory can’t do,” Floyd Sr. told Joe.co.uk in a recent interview.

Online sportsbooks, including BetOnline.com, are offering several mouth-watering prop wagers bettors around the globe have already been jumping all over.

Let’s take a look at some of best ones available leading up to the fight.

Will the fight take place on Aug. 26?

There’s always the chance one of the fighters gets injured during training or McGregor comes to his senses and backs out of the boxing match against the much more experienced Floyd Mayweather. While it’s unlikely to happen, BetOnline is still offering the prop bet with yes being the overwhelming favorite at -900. It is also offering a +550 line the fight does not occur.

POTUS Pick

We’re not sure if President Donald Trump is even a boxing fan, but the outspoken U.S. leader is sure to share an opinion prior to the big fight. The question is, will Trump back Mayweather or McGregor? Trump was an underdog himself during the 2016 presidential race against Hillary Clinton, but he eventually came out on top.

His story may inspire him to once again back the underdog. Either way, BetOnline is offering -700 odds Trump picks Mayweather and +450 to take McGregor.

Method of victory

Mayweather will never overwhelm his opponents with his power. The world champion picks apart his challengers with speed and defense. However, this is a different scenario as Mayweather will take on a fighter who’s never boxed professionally before.

BetOnline is pegging the undefeated star boxer as a -175 favorite to end the fight by TKO, KO or DQ. A more likely outcome is Mayweather by decision, which is paying +175 on BetOnline. McGregor will be looking for that one punch to end it early. If you are looking to hit the jackpot, consider BetOnline’s +575 odds the Irishman knocks out Mayweather.

Total Rounds

While picking how the fight will end is one thing, Bovada.lv is offering an over/under on total rounds. The popular online sportsbook set the projected total at 9.5, with the under a -175 favorite. Consider taking the over at +125 as seven of Mayweather’s last victories have gone the distance.

Physical confrontation at press conference

The two star fighters will set out on a mini-tour to promote the highly anticipated bout. However, there will be a final press conference before the fight.

Will there be punches thrown before the first-round bell even rings? BetOnline is offering +240 odds there will be some pushing and shoving between Mayweather and McGregor at the last press conference. That is a bet worth putting your money on.
