Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor odds released for fight, PPV sales

The so-called “fight of the century” between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather is also going to be one of the most bet on sporting events of the year.

The fight, which takes place on Aug. 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, is captivating for gamblers given the odd nature of the set-up. Mayweather is 49-0 as a boxer, while McGregor is making his professional boxing debut — yet because of his dominance in the UFC bettors are jumping on him as an +400 underdog.

That’s what the gambling site Bovada has the UFC’s lightweight champion listed as on its book.

“We have had up fight odds since Nov. 18, 2016 with the hopes that it would take place, and there has been non-stop McGregor money from being a 10/1 underdog to his current line as a 4/1 underdog,” said Bovada’s Sports Book Manager, Kevin Bradley. “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.

“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.”

Bovada is even laying odds on how many pay-per-views the fight will sell, putting the over/under at 4.99 million buys. The record for PPV buys belongs to Mayweather for his fight with Manny Paqcuaio, which did an estimated 4.4 million.
