For the second straight mega boxing bout of the year, TVMix will be there live, covering The Moment: Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Marcos Maidana, with boxing stories, round-by-round analysis and more. Question is: should you wager any of your hard earned money on the fight?

Let’s break it down…

Argentina’s Marcos Maidana (35-3, 31 KOs) is coming in as the biggest betting underdog to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26 KOs). Mayweather has fought bigger underdogs, but Vegas casinos wouldn’t take those odds, and for this fight have set the line with Mayweather -1100 and Maidana +650.

With Mayweather undefeated, it would be mighty hard to take anyone that opposes him, however, there is always the minute chance that “Money” would be de-throned as pound-for-pound king.

Say you were to go with Mayweather — to win roughly two fill-ups at the gas station ($100), you would have to put up $1100 for a measly return. To win $500, be prepared to shell out $5,500. And if he were to somehow lose — you just lost ten times what you would have won.

On the other hand, if you went with hard hitting Maidana, and he somehow pulled off the upset, the results would be the opposite. To win $100, wager $15 on “El Chino”, while upping your bet to $100 would land you $650 in your pocket.

But here’s the thing: Mayweather has never lost and he will be defending and dodging Maidana’s huge punches all night long. He’s the best defensive boxer in history, rarely gets hit, and with Maidana swinging for the fences it will be easy for him to counter punch and score points over 12 rounds.

Mayweather has never seen defeat, so it may be tempting to go with an almost sure thing, but at what cost? Put a Ben Franklin on Mayweather and win $11? And if he loses? The ends definitely do not justify the means.

If you’re thinking of putting a wager on Maidana, that could be equivalent to giving your money away. Betting against Mayweather is insane. That’s why Vegas wants you to throw something down with those odds, but you might as do an Adrien Broner and flush your money down the toilet.

Maidana would have to make history, and as much as I like Maidana and know the power he possesses, I also know Mayweather will not want to get hit and will figure out a way to keep himself out of harm’s way.

The verdict: don’t bet! Too many things can go wrong with those odds, and as we all know, it takes only two judges to mess up a decision, and next thing you know, your pockets get a little lighter. Do yourself a favor: save that money, enjoy the fight, then take you and your loved ones out to your favorite restaurant the next day. Trust me, it’ll be well worth it, win, lose or draw.
