The current odds have Mayweather (-800) over underdog McGregor (+500). The means a winning $100 bet on Mayweather (-800) would result in a profit of $12.50 and a winning $100 bet on McGregor (+500) would result in a profit of $500. I may have to slap a few bills on the Irishman because I don’t give a fook!!!
Both guys are expected to make over 100 million dollars each.
