Betting guide for Mayweather-Pacquiao

On Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, after nearly five years of waiting, we will finally see boxing's pound-for-pound kingpin Floyd "Money" Mayweather (47-0, 26 KO's) face Manny "PacMan" Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KO's). Mayweather will be putting not only his WBC, WBO and WBA welterweight titles on the line, but also his unblemished record and his stake as boxing's best pound-for-pound fighter.

Let's take a look at where the money is going in Vegas, look at some picks from boxing sharps, and explain our best bets for the fight.


Where is the money going?

Jeff Sherman, assistant race and sportsbook manager at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, had this to say: "When rumors began circulating about the fight taking place, we opened Mayweather minus-275 and Pacquiao plus-235. When the fight became official, we saw a steady stream of Pacquiao support, driving the price as low as Mayweather minus-190, Pacquiao plus-170.

"We then saw some six-figure wagers on Mayweather, driving the price to its current level of Mayweather minus-215 and Pacquiao plus-185."
