A sports book manager at Bovada.lv says the McGregor-Mayweather fight is trending to surpass the money laid down on this year’s Superbowl. McGregor’s odds to win have halved since the fight was announced, though Mayweather still remains the bookie’s favourite.
We knew this fight would be big, potentially even bigger than the Super Bowl, but now we are almost certain it will be. The recent trash talking and promotional tour is only encouraging bets and at this rate we cannot even imagine how much we will take on it. One thing is for sure though, we will need Mayweather huge. A McGregor early round KO as he promised would be a potential disaster and is partly a reason we are giving a great price on Mayweather at the moment.
