Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs Logan Paul Betting Odds and Prediction

Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs Logan Paul Betting Odds

A global pandemic, murder hornets, wildfires and potential alien activity – 2020 has been a wild and interesting ride. Well, it is about to get a whole lot weirder in the boxing world as Floyd Mayweather Jr., arguably the G.O.A.T., has apparently agreed to an exhibition boxing match with YouTube star Logan Paul, set for later in 2020. Let's take a look at Mayweather Jr. vs Logan Paul odds and what boxing bettors can expect from this bout. 

That’s right, we are going to see Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr., former NBA star Nate Robinson vs Jake Paul and now 50-0 Mayweather will share the boxing ring with 0-1 Logan Paul in an exhibition fight that will take place under the Matchroom Boxing promotion, run by Eddie Hearn, and will be shown on DAZN.

Online sportsbook Bovada has released odds for this spectacle and not surprisingly has listed Mayweather as a large -3500 favorite with Paul coming back as a +900 underdog.

This means you’d have to place $3,500 down to profit $100 with a Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr. victory, while a $100 wager on Logan “The Maverick” Paul would profit you $900. You can calculate all of your potential profits by using our online sports betting calculator.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs Logan Paul Odds Analysis

If it’s any feather in the cap for Logan Paul, he has shorter odds at +900 than UFC star Conor McGregor had for his bout with Mayweather when the Irishman opened as a +950 underdog. Now, I’m not saying that because he has better opening odds that he is more of a threat to win this fight, because if McGregor were to fight Paul, I think he beats the pants off the YouTuber.

Meanwhile, looking at Mayweather’s odds history, you can see that he has been favored in each of his last 18 fights that we have lines for; twice, he was a favorite of -2000 or more. On that list, you can see the body of work that Money has run through, including Arturo Gatti, Oscar De La Hoya, Canelo Alvarez and Manny Pacquiao, to name just a few. Consider the threat each of those opponents posed to Mayweather and then consider that Paul’s lone professional fight came against another YouTube star, KSI.

Now, if you are a typical $50 to $100 bettor, placing a bet on Mayweather is just not worth your time since a $100 bet on Floyd to win would profit you a whopping $2.90. You’re best to hang on until closer to the fight when some betting props will be opened such as method of victory or the total number of rounds, on which you will get much better value.

How Will Mayweather vs Paul Play Out?

If this fight is to take place, it’ll be an exhibition bout, though the one problem for me is what weight will they be and because it’s an exhibition, perhaps there won’t be an official weight limit. Logan Paul weighed in at 189.6 pounds vs KSI while Mayweather struggles to get over the 150-pound mark.

However, regardless of the weight, Mayweather is a far superior athlete and boxer who is extremely difficult to hit and he knows all the tricks of the trade to make you look foolish – and that’s exactly what he will do to Paul.

As mentioned above, a wager on Mayweather to win outright isn’t worth your time and I would have to see how many rounds they decide to go to give you direction on a method of victory. If they do 10 to 12 rounds, Floyd by knockout for sure, because Paul will tire and Money will not. If it’s six to eight rounds, I’ll probably go by decision.

I must say that in Paul’s two fights vs KSI (they fought once as amateurs), there were some things that he did well, specifically using his long jab to keep his opponent at bay. However, he gets excited when he does land a jab and then tends to wing wild overhand hooks afterward that rarely land. Also, due to this wild approach, his conditioning becomes an issue. If there are two things you can’t do against Mayweather, it’s throw sloppy punches or gas out.

Prediction: Floyd Mayweather (-3500) via knockout
