Amazed to see so many people thinking Mayweather might 'make this close' to justify a rematch. Since Mayweather fought De La Hoya he hasn't stepped into the ring with anybody he thought had a chance of beating him, that's why it took so long for the Pacquiao fight to happen he waited til he was way past his prime. No way Mayweather risks his unbeaten legacy even for mega bucks.

I'd be frankly amazed if McGregor lands a punch, I think it's more likely he loses the plot and throws an elbow and gets disqualified.

Also I think this whole idea that everyone in Ireland is cheering McGregor on is way off the mark, there's a lot here hoping he gets put in his place.

Betdaq are 1.26 to back and Betfair 1.26 to lay, great arb for premium charge payers.

But after PC it'll be like Mayweather is 1.21 to back or 1.31 to lay on Betfair won't it?

If he loses, then yes, it'll be very bad value for PC payers. If he wins, PC payers will have taken on that risk in order to reduce potential charges.

Talking to the bro in law and I was saying I think if both sides want a rematch or to even drag it out to a best of 3 series, the most unexpected way to do it, but acceptable to the mass media/bandwagon jumpers, would be an injury that stops the fight so it has to go to the judges scorecards early in the fight, so they could have it 10-10, 10-9, 9-10, 10-10.
Oh jeepers, a draw, what shall we do next?? :lol:

That's how I'd rig a multi million dollar fight anyway, but of course you couldn't get away with that in Vegas. :P

You can back Mayweather at 3.6 to win rounds 1-6 on 'group betting 2'

However, you can lay Mayweather at 8.2 on rounds 1-3 and 5.8 on rounds 4-6 on the 'group round betting'

That's a definite discrepency, clearly there's no XM on related markets ;)
