If you’re based in the UK (or Ireland for that matter) and want to have a bet on the big fight then there are loads of great betting offers available for this bout.
Here we take a closer look at how the contest might pan out, the odds you can expect and we also bring you the details of all the best betting promotions. Whether you love the idea of Mayweather v McGregor or think it is a case of shameless money-grabbing, the fight has gripped the now-overlapping worlds of boxing and MMA.
The global media has also lapped the fight up and there is no doubt that there is huge interest in this showdown. The best betting sites around have not been slow to respond to this and there is a slew of great offers that can hopefully help you make a profit from betting on the Vegas battle.
The Money Fight, as it has been dubbed, takes place at the T-Mobile Arena on 26th August (early hours of the 27th for those watching from Ireland or the UK). The fight is taking place on Mayweather’s terms, as the pair will, of course, be boxing.
That has made the undefeated 11-time world champion Mayweather the clear favourite with the odds-setters. The 40-year-old enters the bout priced at just 1/5 with Bet365, whilst the MMA man is available at best odds of 9/2. A highly improbable draw is priced at 50/1 but it’s almost impossible to see a fight that does go the distance being in any way a close thing.
Of course, we promised you offers and that’s what you can get for this fight, with loads of options offering huge enhanced odds. Coral offer the favourite Mayweather at enhanced odds of 25/1 and whilst the maximum bet is just £1 that’s clearly a cracking deal for a 1/5 shot.
Irish fans may prefer to bet with Paddy Power, and backing against their hero may soften the blow if the bookies’ assessment of this one proves accurate. Again, the maximum bet is £1 but any Irish eyes wanting to bet with their hearts more than their heads – or, of course, who simply believe that McGregor can blow the older man away – can also get whopping odds of 40/1 on The Notorious.
Those odds are also available at Betfair Sportsbook, with 20/1 on Mayweather or 40/1 on McGregor offering value either way. Of course, there is nothing to stop you claiming both of these deals and backing both fighters!
One more offer is available at UK giants Ladbrokes, who make McGregor available at 33/1. As with all the offers listed here, this one is only available to new customers and again the maximum bet is £1. Note that the full terms and conditions of these promotions are available at the bookmakers and winnings are paid in free bets, not cash.
Ultimately we just can’t see McGregor having the boxing technique to get near Mayweather. For our eyes that make the enhanced odds on the favourite the ones to go for so why not head to Coral and cash in at 25/1?
