The man they call "Money" will go into this fight as a short-priced favorite to extend his dominance in the ring, but that's not to completely rule out Guerrero. After all, Mayweather hasn't entered the ring in almost a year, and whilst he has shown his dominance throughout his career, he is 36 now.
How that will affect the heavy favorite in this one still remains to be seen, but it shouldn't have too much of an impact on the betting lines and odds here.
Mayweather is the favorite and should continue his winning streak here.

Floyd Mayweather vs. Robert Guerrero: Prediction
As appealing as the betting lines and odds might be on a Guerrero win here, it is simply too hard to go past the undefeated champion winning again in this one.
He might have had a layoff and be getting old, but Mayweather is one of the most dominant fighters ever to enter the ring, with his incredible defense and quick hand speed making for a very difficult matchup. And whilst Guerrero might not be the worst guy to take on in the ring, even he will come off second-best against the brilliance of Mayweather.
The odds aren't great around it, but you get the feeling that this one will go to a decision—something that Mayweather should win comfortably after 12 rounds.
If you wanted to look at a knockout, however, I'd think something around Rounds 8-10 could be worth some value. Mayweather will likely look to tire out his opponent early—which could open it up for a blistering finish should Guerrero become exhausted and drop his hands for a moment in this one.
Prediction: Floyd Mayweather via decision (or KO, Round 10)
