Comments Off on A $150,000 bet on Conor McGregor?


Floyd Mayweather would be a huge most loved over pretty much any comparative estimated boxer in a boxing session. That would appear to be doubly valid for a MMA warrior with no expert boxing knowledge.

The current wagering patterns on the up and coming uber battle, however, propose an alternate story.

UFC lightweight champion Mayweather vs McGregor in a 12-round boxing session on Aug. 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The compensation per-see occasion is relied upon to be one of the greatest offerings in battle sports history.

Be that as it may, while industry insiders – everybody from coaches and kindred warriors to controllers and media individuals – expect a genuinely simple night of work for Mayweather – to a great extent since it’s a boxing session and not a MMA battle – bettors don’t appear to be sold on that conclusion.

At the point when chances opened for the battle, Mayweather was broadly accessible as a – 2250 top pick, which suggests a prevail upon likelihood of 96 percent +950 underdog McGregor. (Truth be told, the lines were significantly more unbalanced at a few books.)

At those underlying lines, a $100 winning wager on Mayweather would get a $4.44 result; a $100 wager on McGregor, in the mean time, would have a result of $950.

So why has cash poured in on McGregor, who would now be able to be found as low as +375 while Mayweather’s most loved status has plunged the distance to – 550 (84% win likelihood)? Why has a potential $100 winning wagered on McGregor gone from a $950 result to simply $375?
