McGregor vs Mayweather

Recommended Posts

The hype and build will be more entertaining than the fight.

Not going to pretend I know boxing strategy but can't see Floyd losing.

 

Both guys getting paid decent.

Easy money for both. There is no expectation for Mcgregor here. All he has to do is show up, talk s***, get schooled and still get the biggest paycheck of his life.

I'm taking out a second mortgage to bet Mayweather to win within 12 rounds.

Won't make any money.

I don't think Mayweather will knock him out, but I think he'll win by TKO. Similar to the Hatton and Gatti fights, except Mayweather is older and this guy is exponentially worse than them.

Ya I legit don't know if he'll knock him out just cause Floyd is Floyd but I'd be shocked if it wasn't complete domination. I was just saying you won't make any money cause the line is so absurd.

Line within 12 is -125 when I saw yesterday. Most people think it goes distance, which is completely reasonable.

Ahhh ok I see what you're saying. I was misinterpreting at first.

I don't gamble but I'm staying away from this because it maybe a total work. I don't trust anyone.

Yeah, there was some talk that Floyd could tank in the first fight to ensure an additional 2 more paydays.

We all know how much Floyd loves money, but it would be shocking if he gave up his undefeated record in trying to get those 2 extra paydays, that wouldn't be guaranteed,

Would this fight really go on his record though?

Are you telling me his fight with the Big Show didn't count?

Most are speculating he wants to get to that 50-0 mark. Doubt this is for the money.

 

You have to wonder why the gaming commission would sanction this fight (obviously the $$). It completely devalues the sport, taking the best ever or one of the best ever and having him fight someone who has literally never boxed before.

 

But perhaps that's what they want, merging MMA and boxing and this is that transitional step.

I wish I was in Vegas for this. I would unload everything I got just to win some additional blackjack money on Mayweather.

Well I'm feeling better about throwing some money on Mayweather. The line dropped to -500 which isn't terrible if you think he's pretty much a sure thing to win this thing.

In boxing, I forget, do you get the line that it ultimately goes off at, like horseracing? Or do you get the line where it was when you actually wagered?

You get the line when you actually wagered I believe. The line started at -2200 and dropped to -500, so my buddy told me we should lock in ASAP. Can't imagine it staying there very long, seems like a function of really early action.

I'm going Conor, in case it's rigged or something weird happens.

Books are highly highly leveraged against McGregor. Vegas can't afford for Floyd to lose. If it's rugged it's going in Floyd's favor. He's also betting on himself.

Mayweather is down to like -350. Those are incredible odds, he should be like -2500. If only I had the $$$

 

4 people have bet $1 million so they can get $250,000
