Mayweather Betting Odds Shorter

Betting on Mayweather has been one of those rare 100% guaranteed wagers, but not everyone can afford to place the bet.

It's different Saturday as he faces Saul Alvarez, because oddsmakers view Canelo as a more serious threat to Mayweather's perfect 44-0 record.

"Normally, laying a bet on Floyd Mayweather forces you to risk so much money that it's not really worth the bet," explains Jack Randall of OddsShark.com. "When he is a 6-1 favorite, it means betting $600 to turn a $100 profit - pretty risky without a ton of return."

Saturday's bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas is different. Alvarez is 42-0-1 and offers a rare chance to bet on the best in the sport at a sensible price.

With 42 victories, you would assume Alvarez is a grizzled veteran. But the Mexican scrapper is just 23 and has defeated Austin Trout (26-0 at the time), Josesito Lopez, and Shane Mosely in the past 15 months.

Mayweather has only fought four times in four years, but still manages to create the biggest buzz of any boxer. And word is he will be guaranteed nearly $50 million for this fight.

Alvarez is a hard puncher who is a tempting +240 underdog at some books (check the latest line at Bovada).

Canelo also benefits from Oscar De La Hoya’s information. As a member of De La Hoya's Golden Boy promotion, he will know how Floyd fights, since Floyd and Oscar battled to a split decision back in 2007.

Unfortunately, Oscar will watch the fight from a rehab clinic where he checked himself in this week.
