Welcome all!

Sportsbook of RS is open to all. I am now taking bets on both McGreggor and Mayhweather. Money must be put up on collateral or whatever it's called. The odds* I'm offering are:

MayhWeather: -2000
McGreggor: -2000


Odds may change at any time.



i don't know any fighter named Mayhweather. what's his record? i don't know any fighter named McGreggor either. there is a Conor McGregor with just one g. is that who you mean? do you accept credit wagering with ethereum the big competitor to bitcoin? i'm looking for EZ credit with no credit check and no late fees.

I don't know who this trashcan McGreggor dude is.

Mayhweather is how it's pronounced, with an emphasis on the H, even though it's properly spelled Mayweather (or so).

Those who really know him refer to him as "broke".

Conor is tough, but being a great striker and grappler may lead to victory in the octagon, but you need boxing skills once you get in the ring.
.



It's more real than home field advantage. Essentially, Conner is tying a hand behind his back in skills. Overconfidence says you can beat someone at their own game, but often is not true unless you trained In their game.

However, there's always the lucky blow, or something weird happening like the other guy bleeds all over the place and the fight stops. But I wouldn't count on those sorts of things.

I'm thinking Connor reverts to an MMA move, gets disqualified and sets up a second match.

He loses his purse money if he does that... so that won't happen. He's going to lose, horribly. Mayweather might say "mma next" but I'll bet anyone here right now that fight never happens. Mayweather wants a big payday with little risk for his 50-0 record which he'll "finally" retire on. Oh hi Connor, you're perfect... No downside for Connor either, as he'll make hundreds of millions just for showing up and NOT using MMA. I'd go get my a$$ beat by Mayweather for 1 million, let alone 100 million. Hell, I'd probably do it just to say I fought him without any money.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

That was my initial concern but then I heard there is a clause in his contract where he loses a lot of money if that happens.

I am not usually a conspiracy theorist, but I think there is a real chance that Mayweather values the money he would make from two rematches more than the undefeated record. It won't shock me at all if he throws it or he ends up getting disqualified for something.

Straight handicapping wise... Mayweather should be -2000 or more. -500, or even now -550, is a steal on Mayweather. If you can find a place that let's you bet $50k to win $10k, like an actual sports book, I'd take that bet all day every day thanks for the free $10k.



Pretty sure you'll be able to get 50 K down if you want. Might be at more like -650. But they say money is still coming in on Conner.

I thought you believed Connor would make a decent showing.
