Floyd Mayweather Jr -709
Conor McGregor +500

O 9.5 (-125)
U 9.5 (+105)

Floyd's got a good history of going the distance, so the over 9.5 rounds seems the most likely to me. I'd parlay that + Floyd ML, for around -110 odds.

I never gambled so I don't know how these things work, does this mean if I put $1 on Conor and he wins I'd make $500? And if he loses do I have to pay anything? What if I put $1 on Floyd and he wins, how much would I win? And if he loses do I have to pay $709?

The +/- numbers deal with $100 values.

For -709, it means you'd have to bet $709 on Floyd so you can win an extra $100 in return.

For +500, it means if you bet $100, you win an extra $500 if McGregor wins.

Once you place the bet, your money is gone, and you only get your money back plus the winnings if you win the bet.

You don't have to bet those exact values, of course, so they will scale with whatever you do bet. For example, if you bet $1000 on McGregor and he wins, you'll get $5000 (plus your initial $1000).

Upon further consideration....

I have to re-think the O/U
Under 9.5 rounds for this kind of fight seems highly likely also, it's really hard to call. Only once has Conor gone the distance in a UFC Title match, nevermind a 12 round boxing match. To think a guy who has never boxed professionally would go a full 10-12 rounds vs Floyd Mayweather is a crazy fucking idea. You'd have to even expect some kind of Shenanigans from Conor that could end the fight early. Can we please get some entourage member hit with a shillelagh?!

Under 9 rounds seems a solid bet to me.
