Betting odds mayweather vs mcgregor ladbrokes
Like a college team going up against the New England Patriots, or a better analogy, an NFL player trying to play one on one against Lebron James in basketball.Boxing, and UFC, while having similarities in combat, are two totally different sports.Most felt McGregor had no chance in hell.Somewhere along the line that changed, significantly.While the fight was in negotiations the odds were put to the test.
Floyd Mayweather opened as a -2200 favorite, with McGregor at 950.For those that dont know betting that means that you needed to put 2200 up to win 100 if you were betting on Floyd Mayweather to win.If you were betting on Conor McGregor to win you would be putting up 100, and you would get 950 if you won.To this day those odds seemed like the logical ones to the person that knows both sports.
The day the fight got signed though, those odds dropped.Floyd Mayweather fell to -900 and McGregor went to 600.Those odds held for a bit.
Then the press tours came, the trash talking, the back and forth accusations, and somewhere in between all that the odds continued to drop.Floyd fell to -600 when it was all said and done, and McGregor went to 400.Basically, this means that a lot of money has been being put down on McGregor to win the fight.People believe in him.It doesnt stop there.
