Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul Odds: Mayweather's Chance to Win Down to 90.9%
Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul Odds: Odds Drifting in Paul’s Favor
Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul odds aren’t available in the United States yet as the fight is pegged as an exhibition match for the time being. But, be on the lookout for that to change as we get close to the June 6 fight date.
For now, we’re forced to use the UK markets to see Mayweather vs. Paul odds as bookmakers on the other side of the pond have started to price up the fight. Originally, some expected Mayweather expected to be a favorite of about -100000, meaning you’d have to bet $100,000 just to win $100 if you wanted to back Floyd Mayweather.
Then last week the UK books started to roll out their official Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul odds and Mayweather was actually a -2500 favorite.
But now, as of Sunday afternoon, UK oddsmakers have shifted Mayweather’s odds completely, to the point where you no longer have to make a massive bet to get a decent return.
Not only are oddsmakers giving Paul a decent chance according to Mayweather vs. Paul odds, but the betting public is also backing Logan Paul to pull off the upset of the century by beating Floyd Mayweather.
Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul Odds
Like we mentioned earlier, Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul odds aren’t out yet in the US, but we expect they will be before the fight gets underway in June.
But, UK oddsmakers are drastically slashing Logan Paul’s odds and making it more affordable to back Floyd Mayweather. Just four days ago, Mayweather’s best odds sat at -2500, which implied a 96.2% chance he would beat Logan Paul.
Now, on Sunday, Mayweather’s best odds are out to -1000, which means oddsmakers give him a 90.9% chance to win.
We’ve also seen a similar shift in Logan Paul’s odds to beat Mayweather. Paul’s best odds sit at +900, implying a 10% chance of victory. But, he’s as short a +600 in some places in the UK.
