UFC 253 comes packed with fireworks from both inside the octagon and the betting lines as middleweight king Israel Adesanya settles his grudge with the unbeaten destroyer, Paulo Costa. Both fighters are explosive strikers and with ill will all but guaranteeing heated exchanges. Co-headlining are red-hot fighters Dominick Reyes and Jan Blachowicz facing off for the vacant light heavyweight title. Let's break down these fights and see which bets we can cash.
Mayweather vs McGregor Boxing Picks
Ok, let’s do this. Enough talk. It’s time to fight. This is the most hyped and anticipated fight of the century. Champion vs champion, boxing vs UFC, ego vs ego. All that aside, it’s time to place your bet on which man will beat the other man up. Of course, you can bet on a lot more than just the outcome. There is a ton of interesting prop bets to choose from. Such as:

A few of the other bets include:

Mayweather/McGregor Outright Winner
Let’s boil this down to the absolute basics, shall we?
Money is the best boxer to ever live. He’s undefeated. He has spent his entire life training to embarrass other men who spend their entire lives boxing. McGregor is arguably the best striker in the UFC. But he’s not 100% focused on boxing all the time. If he wants to survive the octagon, he has to focus on takedowns, takedown defense, and all sorts of grappling techniques.
These techniques aren’t going to do a damn thing against Mayweather, who has been laser beam focused on just boxing for his entire life.
This is the biggest difference-maker and why I can’t bring myself to bet on McGregor.
But what about the Paulie Malignaggi tapes? God, I’m already sick of this. Yes, Malignaggi seemingly got the business from Conor and get knocked down. But those videos can be edited by anyone with iMovie on their phone. No matter what, we’re not getting the full story here.
And, yes, Malignaggi held the IBF junior welterweight title from 2007 to 2008, and the WBA welterweight title from 2012 to 2013. But nowhere in his 36-8 record is a fight against one Floyd Mayweather. And if there was, he would have gotten his face punched loose, at any stage of his career. Also, let’s try to remember that the former champ is only 3-3 since he lost his belt in 2013.
There’s been a lot of talk of Conor saying he’s going to knock out Money in the first round (he’s said 10 seconds). An early victory would be his best hope. The longer this fight goes, the more it favors May, even though Floyd is 12 years older. The longer this fight goes on, the more Conor’s weakness and inexperience in a ring will be exposed.
Mayweather does not even need to attack to win in the first round. He can just sit back and wait for the first mistake to be made, then capitalize on it.
