There are also prop wagers and when and how the fight will end. A Mayweather first-round stoppage is at a betting line of +500. Paul to win in Round 8 pays out at +6600.
What Do Moneyline Odds Mean?
The moneyline is based on a $100 wager and is a pretty easy concept to grasp when learning to read sports odds. A fighter with plus odds – in this case, Paul – is the underdog. At +500, if a $100 wager was made on Paul and he won the fight, the bettor would get the $100 stake back plus a +500 profit.
Wagering on favored Mayweather at -900 is based on how much a bettor would need to stake in order to earn a $100 profit. In this instance, that amount would be $900.
What Promos Would Be Useful For New Bettors?
Every online sportsbook offers some form of signup bonus. This could be a matching first deposit bonus, a risk-free first bet, or even a no-deposit bonus.

Paul, 26, is a YouTuber known as a social media influencer. He makes his living by creating content. In his lone pro fight, Paul lost by split decision to British YouTuber KSI.
Why You Shouldn’t Bet Mayweather As A -1000 Favorite Or Higher?
Retired world boxing champ Roy Jones Jr is giving Paul a 0% chance of beating Mayweather. A bet on Floyd figures to be money and yet, it’s simply not worth the risk.
At one point, the betting line on Mayweather was -6000. In other words, bet $6000 to win $100. What’s the point of risking that much cash for so little return?
Are There Better Ways To Bet On Floyd?
Wagering on an early Mayweather stoppage is the best bet. Placing small wagers on Mayweather stoppages in Round 1 (+500), Round 2 (+500), and Round 3 (+800) will leave you smiling all the way to the bank.

There’s a constituency of people believing that the younger Paul’s weight and height advantage – he’s six inches taller than Mayweather – could present problems for Floyd. These people are evidently unfamiliar with the phrase ‘the bigger they are, the harder they fall.’
This fight will be lasting as long as Floyd wants it to last.
