Why do you need a datasheet for this? The line isn't likely to move further than -600, maybe -500 if we're lucky. For those not familiar with betting on boxing, this means you need to bet $600 to win $100, or in the case of -500, $500 to win $100. I'd put Floyd as a 95% favorite and yet these odds are only giving him a roughly 80% chance of winning. That 12-15% spread is a very favorable margin of safety in my opinion.

If you can get past the mental block of receiving much less than even money on a bet - many people struggle with this - you'll make a 16.67-20% return in an hour if Mayweather wins. Personally, I don't think opportunities come around like this very often so I'm going to bet big on Mayweather. If I lose, it'll sting but I won't be on the streets and I'm sure it'll make for a good story for years as I talk about how royally I got screwed on this bet. If I win, I'll likely plow the proceeds into cryptocurrency to hopefully leverage the return even further.
