Mayweather vs McGregor Odds & Betting Analysis

Boxing purists may be livid about the upcoming bout between future Hall of Fame legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. and mixed martial arts superstar Conor McGregor, but if you’re thinking about betting on the highly-anticipated matchup, then you should be jumping for joy.

Mayweather vs McGregor Odds & Betting Analysis

What: Floyd Mayweather (49-0-0) vs Conor McGregor (0-0-0)
When: Saturday, August 26, 2017
Start Time: 10:00 PM ET  
Where: Las Vegas, Nevada
Stadium: T-Mobile Arena
Moneyline: Mayweather -750 vs McGregor +525
Watch: Showtime PPV
Stream: ShowTime

The two superstars in their own respective sports are set to square off on Aug. 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Mayweather is currently a concrete, -750 favorite to beat McGregor who is a +525 pick to pull off the upset.

Now, let’s find out if McGregor actually has a chance to beat Mayweather.

Why Bet on Conor McGregor Odds at +525

The most obvious reason to bet on Conor McGregor in this matchup is the stunning +700 return should he pull off the win.

Another great reason to back the Irishman is that the 28-year-old brawler has youth on his side, being over a decade younger than Mayweather Jr. McGregor stands 5’9″ and has a 74-inch reach, but more importantly, the reigning welterweight champion has a ton of punching power and has recorded a whopping 18 knockouts in 21 career victories.

McGregor also is about as fearless as they come in either boxing or mixed martial arts, so I certainly don’t expect him to have an ounce of fear heading into this massively huge bout. McGregor has recorded six TKO finishes via punches in his last eight UFC bouts and could ‘get lucky’ if he can find an opening against the defensive-minded Mayweather.

Why Bet on Floyd Mayweather Odds at -750

Why should you bet on Floyd Mayweather?

He is a seasoned boxer and McGregor is just getting his feet wet.

Of course, an even better reason to back the five-division champion is that he’s never been beaten in the ring, even by a handful of likely Hall of Fame opponents.

The 5’8″, 154-pound champion has a reach of 72 inches and will have a decisive advantage when he comes to both, hand and foot speed, not to mention, an even bigger advantage when it comes to boxing IQ. The only negatives that anyone can point to about Mayweather Jr. in this bout is that, at 40-years-old, he’s a dozen years older than his opponent and that he could suffer from ring rust since he hasn’t been in the ring in almost two years since retiring in September of 2015.

Mayweather vs McGregor Betting Analysis

As much as I dislike Floyd Mayweather Jr. and would love to see him lose against Conor McGregor, I just don’t see the undefeated future Hall of Famer putting himself in harm’s way, which, unfortunately, has been his calling card for the better part of the last decade.

Mayweather is also the far more experienced boxer and is so good defensively that I believe it’s going to take a minor miracle for McGregor to land any sort of shot that could really damage the boxing champ. While both fighters are basically taking this fight for money, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has a whole lot more to lose than Connor McGregor seeing as how he’s been a lifelong boxer and wants to desperately keep his perfect record intact against a fighter in McGregor that is s likely going to be a one-and-done boxer.

Mayweather may no longer have the punching power that helped him record 26 KO’s in his career, but he’ll also avoid getting in McGregor’s wheelhouse, which means this one will go the distance.

I can see it now, Floyd Mayweather Jr. wins via unanimous decision, only for Conor McGregor to tell everyone how he was robbed by some scandalous boxing judges and wants a rematch.

For the most part, you should expect Mayweather to get a lead on points by the midway mark, before concentrating on defense to get the simple win on points.

Sergey Kovalev vs Andre Ward 2 Odds

Sergey Kovalev vs Andre Ward 2 Odds

The first fight between Sergey Kovalev and Andre Ward ended in drama. Kovalev had no doubt that he won the fight while Ward remained undefeated. The rematch takes place this weekend on Nov. 17. Fight time is scheduled for around 11:00 pm ET, depending on what happens in the preliminary bouts. The fight takes place at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Andre Ward is undefeated at 31-0-0. He has 15 knockouts. Sergey Kovalev is 30-1-1. Kovalev has knocked out 26 opponents. His only loss was to Andre Ward in the last fight.

Sergey Kovalev vs Andre Ward 2 Odds

Ward is the -153 favorite to beat Sergey Kovalev. Kovalev is at +135 to beat Andre Ward. The over/under on rounds is 9.5.

Can Sergey Kovalev Beat Ward?

Kovalev believes that he won the last fight. Kovalev isn’t the only one who believes it. So, do many boxing analysts and fans. The stats bear out Kovalev’s argument. He landed 126 of 474 punches. Ward landed 116 of 337 punches. Kovalev landed 78 of 232 power punches. Ward landed 61 of 161 power punches. Kovalev won the fight.

Can Andre Ward Beat Kovalev?

Ward controlled the fight. Ward didn’t hit Kovalev as often as Kovalev hit him. It doesn’t matter. Ward’s punches were cleaner. He landed the higher percentage of punches. He controlled the fight from Round 4 on. There is such a thing as ring generalship. That’s what Ward showed.

Kovalev vs Ward 2 Analysis

Sergey Kovalev has only himself to blame. After knocking Ward down in Round 2, Kovalev continued to force the matter only until Round 4. He appeared to take it easy on Ward after Round 4.

I don’t expect Kovalev to do the same this time around. Kovalev knows that if he leaves it in the hands of the judges, he’ll lose yet again. He must go right after Andre Ward this time. He must be more aggressive than he was in the first fight.

The question is whether that helps Kovalev. I don’t believe it does. I’m a huge fan of Sergey Kovalev. But, Andre Ward is unbeatable if you play into his hands. Ward feeds off his opponent’s mistakes.

Going right after the crafty Ward should leave Kovalev much more vulnerable than he was in the first fight. Ward hadn’t fought in two years. He still showed that he’s a master boxer.
