Passing along some wisdom and some picks for Saturday’s mega-bout from resident oddsmaker Vegas Vic. Though the $90 pay-per-view starts at 7 p.m., don’t expect Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor to step into the ring before 11 o’clock Eastern.

Without further adieu, here are Vic’s picks: 

Bet you thought that fight night would NEVER arrive. Well, it’s FINALLY here, and this is how Double V gonna sprinkle the cash around.

Already started by dropping a $20 bill on Mayweather to be knocked out in the first round at odds of 35-1. Lucky punch maybe. Ya NEVER know. BUSTER DOUGLAS REDUX!

Then, one of my favorite movies, “There Will Be Blood,” which leads to one of my favorite props, which fighter will bleed first? McGregor is -$450 vs. Mayweather at +$300. Gonna drop a few bucks, another $20 (take back $60), on Floyd to bleed first, thinking that Conor will hit him with a stray elbow, or head butt, and that will cause a trickle.

Saved my ABSOLUTE BEST BET for last. And the prop is, will there be a point deducted? The No is -$220 vs. Yes at +$180. And we’re ALL OVER the YES!

Money Man is gonna frustrate The Notorious for as long as the fight goes, and there has to be a moment where McGregor reverts to his MMA roots. Take a $50 out of my pocket, and grab $90 if the ref deducts a point.
If you’re in Vegas, and don’t wanna spend $6,000 to get a nosebleed seat at the T-Mobile Arena, c’mon over to my house where we have an ENTIRE FREAKIN’ WALL to watch the fight. Seriously, a 10’ x 12’ wall! Afterward, we can hit the Strip, which will be an absolute zoo.
