Moneyline Market Movement
As for the straight up, moneyline market: SBR reported that Vegas caught up to offshore and adjusted the odds on Mayweather to -180 ($180 to win $100) as of April 3.
These odds have increased back to -200 with less than a month to go to the fight.
One sportsbook manager told SBR that a sizable shift occurred: "The smart money was on Pacquiao early, but a few heavy-hitters are backing Mayweather and we decided to move back on -200", said the manager, speaking on condition of anonymity.
It is likely that as additional betting volume comes in, the line will continue to move.
Natalie expands on the line movement and gives her assessment of the bout in an SBR special released today.
