Boxing: Mayweather vs McGregor-Weigh Ins Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Watching the odds for Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor has been one of the most fascinating aspects of the build for tonight’s wild super-fight. Mayweather opened huge, as predicted, but then more and more MMA fans and Conor supporters threw down on their hero to upset the 49-0 legend, and Mayweather dropped to a mere -400 earlier this week. Now, on fight day and with weigh-ins done, here’s where we stand.

On Bovada right now, you can get this:

Floyd Mayweather -400
Conor McGregor +300

That’s exactly the same as it was on Wednesday, and if you are thinking about a Mayweather bet and you see those odds, jump on them NOW. Like, stop reading right this second and go bet. Because elsewhere, the gap is widening.

5Dimes now has Floyd at -700, Conor +500. OddsShark is Floyd -525, Conor +410. SportsBet has Floyd -525, Conor +410.

As anticipated, these changes indicate that the smart Mayweather bettors have waited until the line on Floyd came down as much as it was going to, then started placing bets. Expect more bets to come in on Mayweather throughout the day, driving that line up.

So if you are planning a Mayweather bet, get in there immediately - it’s only going to get worse as the day progresses. If you are planning on lighting your money on fire placing a bet on McGregor, he’ll be a wider underdog later today, so hold off until just before books close.

Either way, there’s going to be a lot of money changing hands tonight.

Join us tonight for live fight night coverage of Mayweather vs. McGregor starting with the Fox prelims at 7:00 p.m. ET, PPV at 9:00, and main event at roughly 11:00-11:30.
