Current Line on the Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight: Wiseguy-Bookie Cat and Mouse

The current line on the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight as of Friday morning was coming in at -195 for Mayweather and +165 for Pacquiao.

This line will fluctuate throughout the day Friday and hours leading up to the fight on Saturday as bookmakers and wiseguys throughout the world play a game of cat-and-mouse.

“We just keep getting Pacquiao money, so we’re seeing if we can attract some Mayweather action,” said Golden Nugget sports book assistant manager Aaron Kessler in an interview with Sporting News.

The lowest price on Mayweather to date has been -170.  The highest has been -300.

"I think there is going to be a ton of Pacquiao money this weekend,” Stations Casino race and sports VP Art Manteris told Sporting News. “More than the wise guys (will bet on Mayweather)”.

Bookies across the globe anticipate millions of dollars to be wagered on Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao. 

“Hopefully by this evening we’ll have taken a million-dollar bet on Mayweather,” MGM Grand sportsbook operator Jay Rood said Thursday in an interview with the Associated Press. “We’re trying to get that hooked up now.”

Pacquiao fans have helped provide an early influx of money on the underdog, resulting in the odds at times dropping to less than 2-1 in most books throughout Vegas although some larger Mayweather bets, made by wiseguys and high rollers, have kept the odds from dropping even further.

The May 2 Mayweather-Pacquiao fight is expected to rival that of some Super Bowls and comes the same day as the Kentucky Derby, typically the second most wagered event in any given year after the Super Bowl.

“It’s amazing. I’ve never seen so much action so early on a fight,” said Wynn Resort sportsbook head Johnny Avello in an interview with the AP. “Going back two and a half months, this has generated business every day and we haven’t even gotten to fight day yet.”
