Multiple bettors have wagered at least $1 million on Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather money

As the Mayweather-McGregor fight fast approaches, one of the more interesting narratives to follow is the betting trends. On Saturday the odds shifted — first Mayweather was a heavy favorite, then an influx of bets were placed on McGregor and the odds shrunk.

The odds have changed dramatically since news of the fight first surfaced.

Though the majority of bets have been placed on McGregor, the biggest wagers have been placed on Mayweather. Saturday, one bettor placed a $1 million bet on Mayweather at a Las Vegas casino — in cash.

The bet was placed at -500, which would net him/her $200,000 if Mayweather were to win. This wasn’t the first wager of its kind. In fact, two other bettors are known to have wagered at least $1 million on Floyd.

According to Sports Illustrated, one gambler wagered $1 million at -550 odds at the MGM sports book, and another wagered $1.2 million at -500 at William Hill.

The fight is expected to begin around 11:15 p.m. EST.
