Mayweather vs Berto: Who do the betting odds favor

Floyd Mayweather has stated that his fight on Saturday night will be his last fight as a pro boxer. The undisputed 48-0 boxing champion will face the 30-3 Andre Berto, and it seems that everyone is expecting for Money Mayweather to win this bout easily.

If you’re considering betting this fight, the moneyline favors Mayweather by a large margin, currently at -2690, which means that you’d have to bet $2,690 to win $100. On the other hand, the moneyline on Andre Berto is at +1190, which means that you’d put up $100 to win a cool $1,190.

A lot of people have questioned Mayweather on whether or not he’s the boxer he claims to be. Yet, even after beating Manny Pacquiao back in May, controversy still seems to follow Mayweather around.

With little more than four days for the bout to take place, ticket sales at the MGM GArden Arena in Las Vegas, have still not picked up. According to Ticketmaster, there are still over 2,100 seats left, not counting tickets held by promoters.

This may be due to the fact that for many people this is an easy fight for Mayweather and that he chose Berto just to get through.

Because what you may not know, is that if Floyd wins he will equal boxing legend Rocky Marciano’s record of 49-0. Undoubtedly, with a boxer like Mayweather, he’s probably tempted to break that record, regardless of what he says that his health is more important than his fame and fortune.

Whatever you may think of Floyd Mayweather, he still is one great fighter and has dominated over the last two decades when scores of other champions have come and gone. He’s clearly earned his reputation, with 26 KOs, 19 unanimous decisions and three split decisions.

Andre Berto, though eager and hungry, is still no match for his opponent. Although recovered from a torn right shoulder tendon that he suffered in 2013, his 3-3 recent record, including losses to Victor Ortiz, Robert Guerrero and Jesus Soto Karass, shows this glaring difference.

Despite Berto’s claims that he’s just as fast, maybe even faster than Mayweather, it’s likely that he’ll be chalking up another loss to his record.

There are although other  odds available if you’re planning to bet this fight, including a host of interesting prop bets that could prove to be profitable:

  • Over/Under 11.5 rounds
  • Result: Draw of Technical Draw
  • Result: Mayweather to win by Decision or Technical Decision
  • Result: Mayweather to win by KO, TKO, or disqualification
  • Result: Berto to win by Decision or Technical Decision
  • Result: Berto to win by KO, TKO, or Disqualification
  • Floyd Mayweather will fight in 2016
  • Floyd Mayweather will not fight in 2016

In other fights, George Groves will have his third attempt at a world title in the early hours of Sunday morning, when he faces Badou Jack for the WBC super-middleweight title on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather's bout against Andre Berto at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. 

The Groves fight is expected to take place between 1am and 2am, depending on how long the fights before last.
