Floyd Mayweather Vs. Logan Paul Betting Odds, Props & Fight Predictions
Floyd “Money” Mayweather is moments away from putting his untarnished legacy on the line against the most unlikely of competitors, Logan Paul. The 50-0 Mayweather will face the YouTuber, and while Logan Paul has zero wins listed beside his professional record, sportsbook odds have not written him off quite yet.
Mayweather vs. Paul odds currently list Logan at +600, meaning a $100 wager would net you a cool $600 in winnings. Now, given that the fight is an exhibition, this result would only come if the fight is ended mid-bout due to a referee stoppage based on Floyd’s inability to continue.
In essence, you are betting on one of the sport’s greatest getting knocked out by an untrained newcomer.
“We were seeing all Paul money at +500 all week” shared BetOnline oddsmaker Adam Burns. “However, in the last couple hours seeing a ton of smart money on Mayweather going from -800 to -1000 with one bettor placing $112 000 to win $11 000. In the end looks like we will need Paul to pull the upset regardless but no shortage of interest from a wagering point of view that is for sure.”
Plus odds always seem to garner the attention of bettors in advance of seemingly one-sided fights, where betting on the favorite often times offers little to no real value.
In the case of the current odds, a $1000 wager on Floyd nets bettors a small $100. Given the pure nature of this spectacle, you are essentially wagering on no shenanigans taking place.
Given the pure nature of this fight and the exhibition-style rules it sees, bettors are being offered a slew of options that still allow them to predict exactly how the fight will play out.
Some of our favorites include the pre-fight props, where bettors can cash in before the action even starts. At -120, it seems safe to bet that the pair will touch gloves before the fight. Despite being well over his head, Paul wants to act as much like a professional fighter as he can. Him reaching out to touch gloves with th ebest seems like a foregone conclusion, as the understandably nervous Paul will want to look as calm and collected as possible.
At +140, the broadcasters saying Youtube first sounds like a solid value play. Paul, as the challenger, will walk out first, so naturally the broadcasters will comment on his accolades (or lack thereof) first. With no professional record to tout, the broadcast team should point to his YouTube celebrity as the lone reason for him to be in this unlikely situation.
