Tomorrow marks the one month countdown to the much-awaited Mayweather v McGregor bout and online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has been astonished by the amount of support for outsider Conor McGregor.

  • Sportsbet facing $3.5 million payout if Conor McGregor wins bout
  • $30,000 bet taken on McGregor at $5.00 for a potential $150,000 collect

85% of the money has been on the Irishman, forcing his price in from $6.00 to $5.00.

One bet of $30,000 and another two bets of $20,000 have been placed on McGregor at odds of $5.00.

Mayweather remains the $1.18 favourite, but the biggest bet on the American is $10,000.

“If anyone out there wants to back Mayweather, please get in touch with us because it’s all one-way traffic in McGregor’s favour and we’ll be facing a massive payout as it stands,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
