Better big fight prop bets

It's been called a joke, a sham, even a mockery of combat sports. And yet the curiosity factor as UFC world champ Conor McGregor steps out of the octagon and into the ring to box former world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. makes for an intriguing proposal, and that's exactly how you should approach this event from a wagerpoint point of view.

As is the case with any event of such stature, there are an overwhelming abundance of proposition bets being offered by the major sportsbooks, and as such, a spectacular opportunity awaiting you to peruse these opportunities and find the ones that will pay off handsomely.

Let's break down some of the more intriguing possibilities being presented by some of the major sportsbooks:

Barring a stunning upset, Mayweather is going to win this fight, so you want to take a look at the variety of options that are being made available in the form of betting on a Mayweather victory. One factor you should immediately take into account is that Mayweather is known as a cautious fighter. He is an accurate puncher, so he doesn't need to throw a lot of punches to score points, and he may very well be the best defensive fighter in the history of boxing.

He's also won his last seven fights via 12-round decisions. Mayweather hasn't knocked anyone out since Victor Ortiz in 2011. The most obvious chance that McGregor has to win this fight is a puncher's chance, and Mayweather isn't going to take risks in order to try and KO McGregor, so it is more than conceivable that he wins this bout via a decision.

That being the case, there are plenty of ways for you to cash in. Bovada will give you +220 on Mayweather by decision, +200 on a Mayweather win by points and +170 on the fight going the distance. 

Bovada also offers round by round wagering, so why not do this: you can get +1,600 on a Mayweather points win in every round. Bet on him winning all 12 rounds. If you were to put $100 on Mayweather for each of the 12 rounds, and let's say for sake of argument he comes out ahead on the judges' scorecards in nine rounds. For a $1,200 investment, you would go home with more than $14,000 in your pocket.

TopBet.eu

One unique bet being offered by TopBet is a prop bet on who gets knocked down first. If anyone is going down, it's going to be McGregor at -600. The best part of this bet is that if nobody hits the canvas, then all monies wagered will be refunded.

TopBet is also offering a wager on whether this bout will break the pay-per-view earnings mark of $4.6 million set by the 2015 Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao bout. Since the top three pay per view bankrolls of all-time were on Mayweather fights, you will want to play yes on this wager at -200.

BetOnline.ag

Some of the most fun props are being offered by BetOnline, such as who will tweet more in August between the two fighters. No one does self-promotion like McGregor, so take him at -160. Will there be a physical confrontation during a press conference?

McGregor does have a history of causing an uproar at pre-fight press conferences, and this might be a method he'll employ to try to get under Mayweather's skin. Play yes for +220.

Lastly, you can wager on who U.S. President Donald Trump will pick to win the bout. It's fairly obvious the America First POTUS isn't going with the Irishman, so play Mayweather at -700.
