If you had placed a bet back in November on the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight the odds would have been -2250 for Mayweather and +950 for McGregor. However, as soon as the fight was officially announced this week the opening odds were -800 for Mayweather and +500 for McGregor, according to OddsShark. That’s a big swing in the gambling world. Especially considering that pretty much no one is giving McGregor, including his former sparring partner, much of a chance at winning.
That being said, one day later money has been pouring in with bets being placed on McGregor to score an upset victory, according to CBS Sports.
“We expected more money to come in on McGregor, but not at this level. A McGregor win is already a huge liability for the book and it will only get bigger,” Bovada sportsbook manager Kevin Bradley said. “I estimate that this fight might be the biggest single decision for us of any single event ever. The overall money and wagers on this may rival the Super Bowl, if not bigger, as we expect anyone and everyone to have a bet on it in some capacity.”
Now the betting line sits at -600 for Mayweather and +400 for McGregor.
Regardless of what side of the fence your on, one thing is for sure, there will be loads of money spent wagering on the fight, including money on the dozens of prop bets that are already available.
