I was checking the odds on the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight on a site like https://sports.bovada.lv/boxing/floyd-mayweather-conor-mcgregor and wanted to decode a very basic betting structure.

As of Thursday morning, there were 115+ bets and it looked like Floyd Mayweather was at -400 and McGregor was at +300:

Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Conor McGregor FIGHT ODDS

What does this mean?

In its simplest terms:

  1.  McGregor is the underdog.  The one with the positive number…. This means that if you SPEND $100 on a bet and he wins, you will make $300.
  2. Mayweather is set to win, as the odds speak, if you spend $400, you will only make $100.

There are many other cool betting breakdowns that can occur including:

  • Method of victory: Decision, Knockout, etc.
  • Round Betting:  which round a fighter will win overall fight
  • Round by Round Betting:  which fighter will win that round?
  • Total Number of Rounds:  The number of rounds the fight will last
  • Total number of punches thrown

The list can go on and on!  There is even a bet for the number of Tweets that Trump will post during the fight!  Hope this helps and may even help you do more side bets during the match this Saturday!
