As with any major prize fight, there's a whole lot of betting taking place on the outcome. When the bout between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather was announced, it was Floyd that was pegged as the favorite, and it has stayed that way in the lead-up to the bout. Today though, the odds are creeping a bit closer due to late money coming in on Pacquiao.

Mayweather opened in the area of -285, and was around -225 yesterday. Today,  he can be had for as low as -186 on some books, though the consensus has him around -200.

Pacquiao opened around +225 and is now around +165. You can still get him at +175 on some sites, though others have him pegged at +160 or even +155.

Right now, whether the fight will go the distance or not is pegged around -260 for yes, +190 for no.

As for the outcome, here's around what you can get for each possibility (Note - many betting sites means a lot of variation. These are general figures based on the average.)

Mayweather by TKO/KO/DQ +550
Mayweather by Decision -120
Pacquiao by TKO/KO/DQ +450
Pacquiao by Decision +400
Draw or Technical Draw +1400
