Imagine a scenario where Conor McGregor, rabid with rage from chasing an elusive Floyd Mayweather, loses his mind and kicks referee Robert Byrd in the head out of frustration.
Something like that probably won’t happen, but you can now bet on that longshot possibility and rake in a fortune if it does at +20,000 odds.
Skybook.ag, a major online sportsbook, recently announced that they have released a whole slate of new proposition bets for this Saturday’s Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor fight at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
In addition to the usual won/loss, over/under bets available for most major fights, this ingenious company has arranged for bets to be placed, ala the Super Bowl, on a wide range of possibilities.
For instance, one can wager on how an enraged McGregor will respond in the ring. Odds on biting Mayweather’s ear are at -200 and odds of him kicking Mayweather are -140. A kick to Mayweather’s groin will yield a huge gain for bettors at +2500. If the UFC star slips up, forgets he’s in a boxing ring, and attempts a takedown, that wager pays out at -150. Heck, bettors can even wager on how disrespectful the Irishman will be to his opponent—Odds are +10,000 that McGregor will spit at Mayweather.
For those eager to lay some money on “Money” Mayweather, there are also plenty of betting options. You could wager on the color scheme of his trunks (black or black-dominant is the favorite at -120) or the genre of his ring walk music (Christian/Gospel is the high-paying longshot at +8000).
Who lands the first uppercut, who draws first blood, who lands the last punch, whether they’ll touch gloves at the beginning of the bout—Fight fans can pretty much bet on anything when it comes to this highly-anticipated boxing vs. UFC showdown.
“Since the infamous Tyson-Holyfield ‘Bite Fight,’ there’s never been another event like this one,” company representative Thomas Hughes said via press release. “We’re expecting the fight may even bring in more money in bets than the Super Bowl. But, we want to push the envelope much further than usual by offering some new prop bets we believe will attract bettor’s attention.”
The Money Fight will be generating big-time revenue for all those involved and now, thanks to Skybook.ag, wager-minded fans can also score big that evening.
