Best Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao Prop Bets

Safest Mayweather vs Pacquiao Prop Bet – Floyd Mayweather Jr. by Decision or Technical Decision, 5/7

Floyd hasn’t knocked out a guy since he KO’ed Victor Ortiz in 2011. That’s over 4 years of simply out boxing dudes in the ring. Since Manny has power, one should expect that Floyd will either win the fight by decision or technical decision. Floyd figures to display his awesome defense, pot shot at Pacquiao, and stay out of harms way. He’s displayed that ability for most of his career. 

Best Overlay Floyd Mayweather Prop – Floyd to KO Manny 16/1

This might be the one fight where Floyd Mayweather tries to knockout someone. Just because Mayweather Jr. hasn’t knocked anybody out in a while, it doesn’t mean that he can’t do it. He’s one of the best ever at putting together combinations that will take a guy out. Knocking out Manny Pacquiao could be the one guy that, should Floyd register a knockout, will forever solidify his greatness. Plus, knocking out Pacquaio will shut up all of those critics who have claimed that Floyd’s been ducking the Pilipino champ.

Best Overlay Manny Pacquaio Prop – Manny by unanimous decision 12/1

The prop bets tell you what Vegas really thinks about this fight. Even though the betting odds have dropped to Pacquiao +170 from +210, the prop bets clearly favor Mayweather. Getting 12 to 1 on a tactician fighter like Manny Pacquaio to win a unanimous decision constitutes overlay odds in this. Clearly, Vegas believes that Floyd will out box Manny, but Pacquaio’s style could give Floyd fits. This is a good prop to bet.

Best Additional Mayweather vs Pacquiao Prop Bet – First to throw a punch, Pacquaio – Even

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is at -130 to be the first to throw a punch. The thing about Mayweather is that he often times likes to size up his opponents. His best asset is his incredible defense. What he does is counter punch his opponents by waiting for the other guy to throw. Pacquaio will want to establish dominance right away. Even money on Manny to throw the first punch is excellent odds.
