Mayweather vs McGregor who’s your money on?
There will not be a bigger boxing match this year and for that reason, leading bookmakers are already lining up with a whole host of Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor betting promotions for August 26.
Everybody will have an opinion on how this fight will go down and, of course, the bookmakers are going to be all over one of the most eagerly-anticipated fights of all time. But with so many bookies and so many markets to choose from, there is going to be a real fight for your business between now and August 26 – and the bookies are aiding their cause with a string of price boosts.
Offering new customers massive odds has become the option of choice with the bookies as they look to land your business, so it is no surprise to see the likes of Paddy Power and Betfair already offering huge prices for this one with Mayweather available at odds of 20/1 – his standard price is 1/6 – and McGregor at odds of 40/1 – his standard price is 4/1.
These enhancements are paid out in the form of free bets and while that may not appeal to you at first glance, it is worth noting that all you need to do is stake just £1. So, for example, if you successfully back Mayweather you will receive £20 in free bets that you can use to bet on the sporting event/match of your choice, and that means you could soon turn those free bets into a nice profit if your bets are successful.
But if a cash pay-out is more appealing than a bunch of free bets, the bookmakers have got you covered too because they are offering a whole host of enhancements for Mayweather v McGregor and the list is only going to grow the closer we get to fight night.
BetVictor always offer enhancements for the big fights and this bout is no exception with the bookmaker already offering a series of special price boosts for August 26, while those of you looking for Mayweather v McGregor boosts or the chance to call your own shots should certainly consider William Hill and SkyBet.
Not only are these two firms already offering enhanced odds in their Mayweather v McGregor betting, they are also allowing you the opportunity to price up your own bets – for example, William Hill is 11/2 that Mayweather wins all 12 rounds on all three judges’ scorecards while Skybet is 3/1 that McGregor knocks down ‘Money’.
Other customers’ requests are instantly made available to all customers meaning your suggestion may already be available at the bookies’ website, but if it is not all you need to do is tweet the firm with the bet you want to place along with the special hashtag (William Hill – #YourOdds, SkyBet – #RequestABet). Their traders will then price up that bet and get back to you with the odds.
It is only a matter of time before the likes of Ladbrokes and Coral get in on the action too, so there is going to be a wealth of enhancements available to you as the fight draws closer – the big question is which one will you pick?
