Mayweather’s price continues to shrink approaching fight night

With just a few days remaining before two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor steps into the boxing ring for the first time as a professional fighter, the betting public continues to pound the underdog Irishman.

McGregor is down to a +300 dog against favored undefeated American welterweight boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, who has seen the line on him plummet to -400.

A few months ago, Mayweather backers needed to lay more than twice as much money on him while McGregor bettors could get a lot more back in return if he pulls off the upset. Those days are long gone, as the hype train on “The Notorious” has seemingly run off the tracks going into the big fight at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this Saturday.

Take a look at our special odds for this fight night.

After the decision was made to allow eight-ounce gloves for their 154-pound matchup, those who liked McGregor pounced on him even more and further lowered his odds to the current number. The theory is that McGregor’s only real shot to beat Mayweather is via knockout, and the smaller gloves supposedly increase his chances of doing that.

Regardless, fans of Mayweather might be waiting to see how low the line ends up going before deciding to load up on the future Hall of Famer. While the 40-year-old has not fought in nearly two years, his experience is unmatched and reason enough to side with him. However, it is worth noting that he has not scored a knockout since 2011.

That is an important fact considering the favored method of victory is Mayweather by KO, TKO or DQ at -125 followed by him via Decision or Technical Decision at +250. The odds on a McGregor KO, TKO or DQ is +325 with a Decision or Technical Decision worth +1200. For those looking for a long shot, a Draw or Technical Draw is +3300.

The over/under total on this mega-fight is 9.5 rounds, with the under continuing to be a solid favorite at -175 and the over sitting at +125. Mayweather has gone the distance in each of his past seven fights. Meanwhile, McGregor has seen just two of his 24 MMA bouts go to the scorecards, and only one of those has happened since 2013.
