As Saturday night’s bout between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor approaches, the public has continued to hammer the underdog, bringing Mayweather’s odds down from a massive -1100 to anywhere from -500 to -600, depending on the book. It’s not surprising that the public has been on McGregor, considering his massive, loyal fan base and the fact that there’s little reason to put a small wager down on a heavy favorite.

However, while over 90 percent of the tickets have been placed on McGregor, the big money at the sharp books has started to come in on Floyd Mayweather.According to ESPN’s David Purdum, the average wager on McGregor at Westgate has been $212, compared to an average wager of $8,036 on Mayweather. There have been multiple reported wagers well into the six figures on Mayweather, including $880,000 from the Maloof brothers, but on Thursday, the MGM Sports Book took the first $1 million wager on Mayweather at -550.
