On Saturday, at 9 pm ET, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will enter the ring in Vegas. Fight fans have been waiting for the showdown between the former pound-for-pound king and the UFC champion for more than a year. Now that the superfight is finally here Saturday may feel painfully long waiting for the boxer and MMA champ to touch gloves. No fear, there are other sports going on that day and you can bet these cross-sport Mayweather vs. McGregor props bets.

What will there be more of?

  • Total Knockdowns by Conor McGregor                                      -140
  • Total Home Runs by Giancarlo Stanton on Aug 26                      EVEN

Few should expect a knockdown in the fight, zero (+275) or one (+200) knockdowns is the betting favorite. Mayweather is -600 to record more knockdowns than McGregor (+400). So if a fighter hits the mat it will likely be McGregor. Stanton has the most home runs in baseball (45) but he is hitting 0.4 per game. It is no lock that he goes deep but at even money it feels like the better bet.

What will there be more of?

  • Total Punches landed by Conor McGregor in the Fight                -140
  • Total Points in the Margin of Victory of Stanford vs Rice            EVEN

Mayweather is notoriously difficult to punch. In his fight against Pacquiao, a professional boxer, he outpaced his opponent by landing 148 punches to 81 punches. The Over for punches landed by McGregor in the fight is 31.5 (-120) and Stanford is a 31-point favorite vs. Rice. It looks like a fair bet but this Pro System likes the Cardinal to cover in the game and I like Stanford in this prop.

What will there be more of?

  • Total Runs in the Twins vs Blue Jays game on Aug 26                 -140
  • Completed Rounds in the Fight                                                  EVEN

The most likely result of the fight is that it goes the distance (+200). If the fight is decided by decision then the Twins/Jays would need to score more than 12 runs. Unlikely.

What Will there be more of?

  • Total runs in the Mariners vs Yankees game on Aug 26               -140
  • Completed Rounds in the Fight                                                  EVEN

Dating back to 2015, the Yankees and Mariners have played each other 15 times. On average, the teams have totaled 6.9 runs per game. Again, assuming the fight goes the distance and each of Mayweather’s fights have since 2012, value on completed rounds.

What Will there be more of?

  • Strikeouts by Madison Bumgarner on Aug 26                             EVEN
  • Completed Rounds in the Fight                                                  -140

Since returning from the DL, Bumgarner hasn’t struck out more than seven batters in a game. Completed rounds is rightfully favored.

What Will there be more of?

  • Strikeouts by Cole Hamels on Aug 26                                        +180
  • Completed Rounds in the Fight                                                  -260

Hamels is 9-1 on the season but fans just 4.1 batters per start.

What Will there be more of?

  • Strikeouts by Sonny Gray on Aug 26                                          +160
  • Completed Rounds in the Fight                                                  -230

The new Yankee averages 5.6 Ks per game. The implied probability of there being more rounds in the fight than strikeouts is 69.7%.
