Mayweather-Pacquiao prop bets have just about everything covered

Boxing

The Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Manny Pacquiao megafight is right around the corner – May 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, to be exact – and online sportsbook Bovada wasn’t concerned that the fight was in an odd limbo as of Wednesday. But with the fight officially a go and tickets going on sale Thursday, it's a time to rejoice for all – well, except for the common fan who hopes to buy a ticket.

Regardless, Bovada has released its gambling odds for the bout and a whole mess of fun prop bets, not that we would ever encourage such an endeavor.

Mayweather is a minus-210 favorite, while Pacquiao is holding steady at plus-170. The fight is favored to go the distance – minus-300 – with Mayweather a 5/7 favorite to win by decision or technical decision.

"A Mayweather win by decision ... would be the ideal situation, while a situation such as an early Pacquiao KO would be a disaster for the book," Kevin Bradley, Bovada's sportsbook manager, said in a released statement. "This will no doubt be the biggest boxing match we’ve ever booked. It’s hard to gauge the magnitude of this as there really is no comparable fight. With the Kentucky Derby being on the same day along with NBA and NHL Playoffs, it wouldn’t be a shocker if betting on May 2 is as big as the Super Bowl."
