Mayweather vs. Maidana Betting Odds

Early Mayweather vs. Maidana odds show Floyd Mayweather, Jr. as high as a 14-to-1 favorite against Marcos Maidana for May 3 bout named as "The Moment". Oddmakers don't think really think Maidana has the capacity to win this World Unification Championship bout. Well, its a miracle only if the Argentinean knockout artist can pull-out a lucky punch that can knockout the reigning pound for pound king and WBC welterweight champion.

Opening odds with Mayweather as a landslide 1/14 (-1400+) favourite, with Maidana as large as 10/1 (+1000). It's worth pointing out, too, that at present that's the best available price, with Irish bookmaker Paddy Power as short as 1/20 (-2000). By way of damning comparison, Mayweather was around a -750 shot against Guerrero (Guerrero +475), and in hindsight the oddsmakers may well consider that as much too generous. For reference, Mayweather's general price against Canelo last time out was around the -225 mark. Whichever way you slice it, this looks like a difficult sell.

Khan's audition may have been a fruitless one, but interestingly - or rather, as interesting as this whole gruesome affair can have possibly been - it was he that the bookies thought would put up more resistance. The word resistance should, in this context, be taken with a pinch of salt - Mayweather was priced up as the lopsided 1/8 (-800) lock, with Khan at +750 - but the theory that Khan had the better chance, however minimal, was - and probably is - still well-subscribed to.
