Believe it or not ladies and gentlemen, YouTube star Logan Paul has pulled things off and will be taking on arguably the best boxer of all time: Floyd Mayweather. The two will face off on Feb. 20. Who will win? In this piece, we break down the Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul odds and picks for you.
Floyd Mayweather is a massive favorite to take down Logan Paul
As you might imagine, Floyd Mayweather is a massive favorite to take down Logan Paul. The fact that the two are even fighting is a bit of a joke, as Paul is a YouTube star and has limited fighting experience. Mayweather is one of the best ever to enter the ring, and has a 50-0 record to back that up.
Entering his tilt with Paul, Mayweather has -5000 odds and Paul is at +1500, according to the latest boxing odds. That tells you the story, as the Vegas sportsbooks are letting you know that Paul has a prayer in trying to take down Mayweather. While this is an exhibition, you already know that Mayweather is going to put on a show.
Paul and his brother have been talking plenty of trash too, which is only going to motivate Mayweather to shut him up early on. While Mayweather has been enjoying retirement, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t still have the itch to get back into the ring and put the gloves on. This of course is bad news for Paul.
If you decide you want to lay down a bet on this exhibition match, you’d be a darn fool to put any money on Paul. Mayweather will make easy work of him and probably end the fight in the early rounds. Mayweather is the no-brainer pick for us here at Vegas Betting and he should be for you as well.
Which round will Floyd Mayweather defeat Logan Paul?
On paper, again, these two have no business fighting. It really feels like a publicity stunt, but hey, it is what it is. With that being said, which round will Floyd Mayweather defeat Logan Paul? There’s just no way Paul wins this and Mayweather’s odds tell you that from the start.
While the odds for which round Mayweather will take down Paul are yet to be released, we think this one will get done rather early. The two will probably feel each other out in the first couple of rounds, but look for Mayweather to take Paul down in the third or fourth round at the latest.
Because it’s an exhibition, you’ll probably see the two have a little bit of fun with things at the start, which is the only reason we’re not picking Mayweather to end this one with a first-round knockout. In normal circumstances, if a fighter of Mayweather’s caliber was facing a celebrity, it’d be over at the start.
Again, though, because it’s an exhibition, things will be a little different this time around. Regardless, Mayweather is simply too great of a fighter to let this thing go on past 3-4 rounds. If you’re in the betting mood and want to place a wager on which round things will end, our pick is either Round 3 or Round 4.
There are plenty of fun Mayweather-Paul prop bets for fans to take a look at
With this exhibition match already generating plenty of buzz, there are plenty of fun Mayweather-Paul prop bets for fans to take a look at. As you might imagine, there are some head-turning options for you to take a look at. For example, you can bet on which fighter will end up bleeding first.
In this case, Mayweather is +300 and Paul is -500. Our pick of course is with Paul to bleed first, as Mayweather will undoubtedly deliver his famous jabs early and often and connect on Paul with consistency. Because Paul has almost no fighting experience, he won’t be smart enough defensively to stop Mayweather.
Another prop bet out there is whether or not Paul will be knocked down at all during the fight. Come on, you really think this won’t happen? Our pick is for Paul to go down at least once. The odds are set at -350 for at least one knockdown, and +225 for Paul to stay on his feet from start to finish for the entire battle.
Last but not least, you can also bet on whether or not the bout will go the distance. Again, our pick is for Mayweather to end things in one of the earlier rounds. The fight going all the way has +150 odds and things ending early has been listed at -200. Go with things ending early here, folks. That’s an easy pick.
