Popular Mayweather vs. McGregor Bets

The huge volume of wagers currently being placed on Floyd Mayweather means that you are not going to find the most generous of odds available on him winning, and if you think there is no way he can lose this match then consider placing some of the additional wagers that can be placed on him.

One popular type of additional bet you can place on Mayweather is to pick him to win the match but also name the round in which he will win, or name him as the winner and also name the method of victory too.

By placing such a two part bet you will find the odds available are going to be much more generous than an outright win bet on Mayweather. But make sure that you do shop around and make sure any odds you do find are the very highest ones being offered to you!

You can also place a similar range of bets on McGregor winning too and as such if you are not that impressed with his win odds then consider placing one of those to part bets and naming him as the winner instead of Mayweather!

What you may also be interested in doing is taking bets of other sports fans, that is something you can legally now do by signing up to a betting exchange. When you join such a site you can name the type of bets you want to offer to other sports fans and offer odds on those betting opportunities too.

If anyone you have taken bets off wins you do of course need to pay them out their winnings, however if their bets lose then you keep their stake money, less a small commission payable to the betting exchange!
