With today’s sports bettors gaining accessible information not readily available in year’s past, bookies must be prepared to cover their losses.  The Manny Pacquiao vs. Jeff Horn fight serves as the perfect example.  

Like most oddsmakers the world over, betting action on Horn was around 65 percent.  International sportsbook operators and Pay Per Heads in contact with Gambling911.com addressed their concern over this influx of bets on Horn but knew they had an “out” clause most corner bookies operating on their own did not have.

“We offered our clients round betting and LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING on this fight,” noted a representative from AcePerHead.com, which has been serving the Pay Per Head community now for more than a decade.  Method of Victory wagers were also readily available.  “These types of loss leaders helped our clients soften the blow.”

Sure the win was controversial with some books late grading bets, but in the end, big underdog Horn was the victor.

Judges awarded a unanimous points decision to the former school teacher, Horn, but many fans of the sports disagreed with that outcome. 

"There will always be a backlash where people say I got lucky, or whatever. There will always be the naysayers saying I didn't win the fight, but I felt like I won the fight," Horn, now unbeaten in his 18 bouts since turning professional in 2013, said as he basked in the victory on Monday.

"Everyone has a right to their opinion. I'm sure I've [gained] a lot more fans over there than I've lost."

The Pacquiao-Horn fight in many ways is a precursor to the year’s biggest bout, Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor and AcePerHead.com warns that bookies better be on their toes.

“This one may seem lopsided but it’s all about the marketing and the lead-up promotion, making Mayweather-McGregor one of the most wagered on fights in years.”

Mayweather is a high-priced favorite most experts believe will win but books are going to be capitalizing on exotics such as round wagering and IN-PLAY LIVE BETTING.
