With a quick look at the logan paul vs floyd mayweather odds, it’s no surprise that 50-0 boxer mayweather is a heavy favorite and paul, with his 22.6 million followers, is an underdog.
Of course, Paul came under fire on social media after his brother Jake knocked out Nate Robinson in the co-main event of Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. card. And just like we do with our UFC fight analysis, I’ll take a look at the Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather odds and provide a prediction for this fight below.
Online sportsbook betonline sportsbook has released the logan paul vs floyd mayweather odds and unsurprisingly listed mayweather as a heavy -800 favorite with paul coming back as a +500 underdog.

paul vs. mayweather rules
As mentioned above, this fight is billed as a super exhibition, and for those who remember the fight between Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. fight in November, the rules have some similarities. Notably, there will be no judges and no official readout of the winner, so if you’re taking Mayweather by decision, don’t.
however, unlike the tyson vs jones matchup in which knockouts were discouraged, that is not the case with paul vs mayweather. According to Mayweather in a recent interview, the judges won’t be needed anyway since he’s predicting a stoppage.
mayweather vs. paul rules, according to the florida commission: — no judges — no official winner reading — legal knockouts — ko at referee’s discretion — no helmet — 12 oz. gloves: eight rounds of 3 minutes
paul vs mayweather odds analysis
perhaps a feather in the cap for paul is that he is not the biggest underdog against floyd; Mayweather’s lowest odds were -3000 in a fight against Andre Berto. Paul has had one professional boxing match, in November 2019, when he lost a split decision to KSI. so we have a youtube sensation of 0-1 against a 50-0 boxer which makes perfect sense to see why the logan paul vs floyd mayweather odds are where they are.
Looking at mayweather’s odds history, you can see that he has been a favorite in each of his last 18 fights that we have lines for; twice, he was the favorite of -2000 or more. In that list, you can see the body of work the “money” has gone through, including Arturo Gatti, Oscar De La Hoya, Canelo Alvarez, and Manny Pacquiao, to name just a few.
Consider the threat each of those opponents posed to Mayweather, and then consider that Paul’s only professional fight was against another YouTube star, Ksi.
understanding logan paul vs floyd mayweather betting
now if you are a typical $50 to $100 bettor, betting on mayweather is simply not worth it as a $100 bet on floyd to win would give you a profit of $12.50. It’s best to wait until the fight draws closer, when more Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather betting props will open, like which part of Paul will bleed first; I think “nose” at +250 has value.
logan paul vs floyd mayweather betting tips
With this being a “super exhibition” fight, one stipulation I’ve seen is that Floyd can’t weigh more than 160 pounds, which won’t be a problem, and Paul can’t weigh more than 190.
mayweather conditioning is a game changer
however, regardless of weight, mayweather is a far superior athlete and boxer who is extremely difficult to hit and knows all the tricks of the trade to make you look like a fool, and that is exactly what he will do to paul.
As mentioned above, it’s not worth betting on Mayweather winning outright. furthermore, betting on mayweather to win by decision will qualify as a push, so your only option is to take “money” to knock out “maverick”.
what does pablo do well?
I must say that in paul’s two fights against ksi (they fought once as amateurs), there were a few things he did well, specifically using his long jab to keep his opponent at bay. however, he gets excited when he jabs and then tends to throw wild overhand hooks that rarely land. furthermore, due to this wild approach, conditioning him becomes a problem. If there are two things you can’t do against Mayweather, it’s throw sloppy punches or pour gas.
paul vs mayweather betting value
again, looking at the odds on logan paul vs floyd mayweather, it’s not worth betting with mayweather at -800. however, taking the fight to not go the distance at -310 is of much better value, or perhaps taking mayweather to win in a specific round. you can see those odds in our mayweather vs paul prop odds article.
