    Gimmick.

    Most people bet late because they dont want their money sitting in PP accounts for weeks

    A payout pre-event, is still a payout, and no other books seem to be doing this so you certainly can't really complain.

    But brings back memories of the early payout for the 'lol' 'sure winners' of i).Clinton, ii).Remainers and a fair few years ago iii).T'Woods stung them for around about 1.5m. Tiger was leading R4, only to find 150/1 Yang Yong-eun destroy it and win the PGA.

    I bet very early (via WHill @10) for the Notorious, even before the fight was officially confirmed.
    Reckon it'll be either CmG in R4 or else FM by R7. But all the prices are now shorter now than FM's shinny head haircut.
    It could of course roll on 12R and create a nice pay-day for everyone, particularly the ad agencies.

    Problem with doing that is the price may shorten, if you wanted to back McGregor couple of weeks ago he was 4/1-9/2 area, now 3/1-7/2.
    I don't think he will get much bigger pre-fight now.

    Is this fight really as big a no brainer as they're seem to believe.

    It would appear that Mayweather would have to win but for some reason I cant bring myself to put a large bet on

    Youre right. However, I imagine the fluctuations in the vegas sportsbooks may be more pronounced than they are here. Still if theres a big enough gamble the price is sure to be affected

    I had a bet on the Fight for Maywaether to win by Points/Decision and I lost. I thought it was stopped by ref on a TKO. Is that not a decision

    Nope just asking a question as never betted on something like this. If it is not decision then so be it. I well know better for the future. No need to be such a d£"k about it

    No, you needed the fight to go the 12 rounds

    It's considered a distinct method of winning.
