When Does Mayweather-McGregor Betting End?

The odds of Floyd Mayweather defeating Conor McGregor in a boxing match are overwhelming. The undefeated UFC champion stands a good chance of knocking out the “King” of Boxing, as McGregor has only won one fight in his entire career. Nevertheless, there is still some value in betting on the Mayweather-McGregor fight. Below, we will provide you with some general guidelines as to when and how to place a bet on this bout.

When Does the Fight Start?

Mayweather and McGregor will meet in the ring on the 20th of August in Las Vegas. The fight is scheduled to start at 6 pm local time, which is 3 pm in London and 11 pm in Los Angeles.

The time difference means that sports fans in London and LA will want to know the result of the fight long before the final bell rings. For that reason, London and LA sportsbooks will be opening very early on the morning of the fight. If you are planning on placing a bet before 5 am, you will have to do so in the very early morning hours. Remember, all bets placed after that will be subject to taxation in accordance with Irish law.

How Do You Place a Bet?

In the US, you can place a bet in a variety of ways. Live sportsbooks open around the clock and offer customers the ability to bet on just about any sporting event, including boxing. You will find a variety of websites that offer betting on MMA fights, but you will have to search for them; live betting is largely prohibited in Ireland, although you can get odds for upcoming fights.

MMA fight betting is a bit more complex. For an event to be considered official, there will need to be two events: a main event and a qualifying event. The main event is the bout that everyone is interested in and the qualifying event is usually a show or bout that people in the knowwatch to see if the champ is resting or knocked out. You can find odds for the main event of a UFC fight, but you will have to look carefully because most books will not offer odds for the qualifier. If you do manage to find someone who does, the odds will be extremely long.

Is There Stakes?

You will find the full scope of betting odds for the Mayweather-McGregor fight on the latter’s official website. According to those odds, the fight will be highly predictable – Mayweather is heavily favoured to win.

If this fight truly is as close as the betting odds suggest, there will be considerable financial incentive in observing it live. The main event of a Mayweather-McGregor fight is traditionally very exciting to bet on because of the star power of the involved athletes and the fact that it is often hard fought. The lack of scientific analysis that goes into boxing means that there is often a need to consult up-to-date stats and form to make informed bets. If you miss the early morning hours in London, you can still follow the action live updates from Mayweather’s website, or you can follow one of the many live boxing streams on YouTube.

The financial implications of betting on this fight are not insignificant. Mayweather is currently valued at around $60 million while McGregor is touted as being worth around $30 million. If you win, you will make a profit of around $30 million. Alternatively, you could lose a bit of money depending on how the fight turns out. As mentioned earlier, if Mayweather knocks out McGregor, the Irishman will be remembered as one of sport’s most brilliant underdogs – perhaps even greater than his remarkable feat of knocking out Manny Pacquiao. In that case, you would have lost around $30 million, but at least you would have placed a memorable bet.

What If I Bet On Mayweather To Win But The Fight Goes The Whole Fifteen Rounds?

If you bet on Mayweather to win but the fight goes the distance, you will need to eat a considerable amount of crow. You will have wagered on the undefeated boxer to win, but the fight ends in a draw or in McGregor’s favour. That is a very different outcome to the one you were expecting and it causes you to question the logic behind your bet. There is no shame in being fooled, but you should feel ashamed if you bet on Mayweather and did not know how the fight would turn out. If this happens, you can either give up on winning or you can try and recover your losses.

Should I Bet On Mayweather Or McGregor?

The overwhelming favourite in this fight is Floyd Mayweather. Despite that, McGregor still has a chance of proving the world wrong and becoming the man to beat. The key to making a good bet is to look at the odds. While Mayweather is a 12/1 shot to win (12/1 meaning 12 chances of winning for every 1 shot), McGregor is only at 9/1 (9/1 meaning 9 chances of winning for every 1 shot). Unless your main interest in betting is in trying to reduce your losses, you should put your money on the more experienced boxer. Do not get carried away by the Irishman’s potential to upset the odds and prove everyone wrong, because that is a very tricky thing to do. At the end of the day, you will still need to answer the question: who do you believe will win between Mayweather and McGregor?

These are just some of the things you need to consider before placing a bet on the controversial Mayweather-McGregor fight. As with any other sporting event, if you follow the above guidelines you will have a good chance of placing profitable bets. Just remember, always assume you are going to lose. It is a common mistake for people to think they will win because they side with the better puncher or because they like the match-up more. Most people who think this will happen are actually going to lose their money. Experience has taught us that every now and then, someone will pull a shocker out and win, but for the most part, the favourites win.

People will argue for hours about whether or not Conor McGregor can beat Floyd Mayweather. Many will say McGregor will win because they believe he is the better boxer and the match-up between them offers a better chance for McGregor to beat Mayweather. A select few will even argue that the Irishman can knock out the undefeated boxer. The fact is, nobody knows for sure, which is why there is no clear favourite in this fight. The best thing for you to do is: follow the odds. For the time being, Mayweather is a 12/1 shot to win and that is a good place to start if you want to place a bet on this fight.
