Re: Mayweather v. McGregor

Connor probably has a 1% chance of winning by knockout and a .01% chance of winning a decision. A disqualification win is also a possibility.

The fight is going to be trash and I imagine Connor will make an early attempt at a ko but otherwise focus on prolonging the fight to gain as much respect as possible. It's not like Floyd is an old fighter way past his prime. He would still be a betting favorite against anyone in his weight class right now.

Will not watch. The right side of this betting line is Floyd.

Re: Mayweather v. McGregor

A fair line is probably
-5000 Mayweather.

What it closes at depends on risk management of books I guess since there will probably be a lot of money square money coming in on McGregor and but it's only 2k limits at BM atm.

Fair being -5000/+5000 that 2 buddies would bet or -5000/+2000 that many thieving shops could post ?


All the square $$ will be on CM . Sqaures simply don't lay 6-1, 10-1, 50-1 etc. responsible sharps will should not risk too muck of their bankroll despite the appearance of massive value.

The margin for the book with those lines is 2.8%

No book would offer 5000/2000

I do hope that decision line is a typo and should read the -125 which is available in every other book on the planet

Went ahead and jumped on the -160 U 9.5...No way i see this going this far because of the limitations i think CM has and not going to dik around and take a shot with exact rd so i got down this morning.

No. Top amateur boxers would destroy CM.

As much as i love floyd in this spot, the fact that every tom dick harry and joe six pack think the same thing does have me slightly concerned.

Re: Mayweather v. McGregor

I truly hope everyone that is claiming Conor has no chance and are 100% sure of it...that they pound Mayweather at -500 otherwise shut up. If it's such FREE money and such a 100% sure thing they cashout your 401k and whatever else you have and get paid!

Truth is Conor the line should be -5000/+2000

But this is a huge showcase fight with a lot of bets and books know NOBODY will bet -5000 for big money and probably 90%+ bet will be at 20/1 and could get slaughtered in a shocking upset.

Re: Mayweather v. McGregor

This fight reminds me so much of the election, especially as far as the betting is concerned. I feel like I would be an idiot to pass on Floyd "Hilldawg" Mayweather at -500, despite knowing the timeline we're in is rigged.

So you think the fair line is -5000/2000 be you aren't going to pound -500?

Perhaps Sportsbook is freerolling here. They are shady af and notorious for slow paying or not paying out on bets " due to obvious line error"
