NFL: Super Bowl LII-Philadelphia Eagles vs New England Patriots Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Undefeated 50-0 boxing icon Floyd Mayweather recently claimed that he will be coming out of retirement for a rematch with longtime rival, Manny Pacquiao, this December. Bloody Elbow has the betting odds! It should be noted that this potential matchup must occur by December 31, 2018 for any action on the following odds. As expected, Mayweather opened up with a stout favored line of -265, according to online gambling site BetDSI, with Pacquiao sporting a dog tag of +215.

The first time these two boxing titans collided, Mayweather clocked in with a favored line of -225, while Pacquiao in the underdog role at +175. The bout did historic numbers in terms of pay-per-view buys, with 4.4 million purchases that returned a cool $400M. If Mayweather vs. Pacquiao 2 actually happens, and before December 31, 2018, then BetDSI also offers an over/under prop bet for how many PPV buys the rematch will bring in. Both the over and the under for 4.3 million buys sit with a moneyline of -115. It should be noted that Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor did 4-3 million buys last year, which was Mayweather’s last bout and McGregor’s lone pro boxing appearance.

It’s really no surprise to see the odds for this possible rematch opening up the way they are, considering Mayweather was victorious in their initial offering, and at ages 41 for “Money” and 39 for “Pac-Man,” both men are riding the downward arc of physicality. Who knows if this bout will really take place. I mean, we all remember how long it took for their first matchup to get finalized, but if you feel strongly, one way or the other, as to whether or not May-Pac 2 happens, they have a prop for that. ‘Yes’ owns the favored line at -150 with ‘No’ coming as an underdog line of +125.

Hey, it could happen?
