Mayweather Still The Attention Of Boxing Props Even Behind Bars

Filed under: Boxing Betting Odds |

Boxing great Floyd Mayweather honored his agreement to report to jail following his fight against Miguel Cotto back on May 5 from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mayweather reported to the Clark County jail in Nevada last Friday June 1 to begin an 87-day sentence for charges of domestic battery. His original sentence back in December was delayed by Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa, so that Mayweather was allowed to fight Cotto.

It was a bout that Mayweather won by a unanimous decision, moving him to a 43-0 record in his career and earning him $32 million.

Mayweather was a big favorite going into the fight with Cotto. And the undefeated champion definitely knows a thing or two about being the favorite, and wagering on sports.

Mayweather has admitted several times that he is an avid sports bettor. During a sit down interview with he and Cotto prior to their fight last month, Mayweather paused for a moment to check the scores for a game which he placed a $100,000 bet on. Then, he proceeded to explain to Cotto what needed to happen in order for him to win his wager.

Being in the role of the favorite is nothing new Mayweather of course, with his record speaking for himself. But oddsmakers have still found a way to form betting lines for the boxing champ despite him being no where near a ring.

Bovada Sportsbook has formed two Boxing Prop Odds relating to Mayweather.

The wager is whether or not Mayweather will serve the full 87 days of his jail sentence, with ‘Yes’ going off at -200 and ‘No’ paying out +150 on the amount wagered. While Mayweather will understand this line, let’s explain it for those who might not. If Mayweather does not serve his full 87 days, and you place a wager on that, then you would win $1.50 for every $1 you wagered. On the other side, if he does serve the full 87 days and you wager on that, for every $2 wagered you would profit $1.

The second betting line is whether or not Mayweather will watch Manny Pacquiao vs Timothy Bradley on Pay Per View on June 9, which is this upcoming Saturday. Oddsmakers don’t see that happening, setting this line at +500, or 5/1.

So if you want to wager on yourself Mr. Mayweather, now you have your odds!
