How much are you all putting down?

I don't understand why people think that it's even possible for Mayweather to take a dive. From a risk/reward perspective the incentives to lose are way worse than winning. How much would some shadowy figure have to pay Floyd to make it worthwhile?

He's already making $200m off the fight after PPV money comes in, and add that to the $100m he's got in the bank, plus whatever his cars/mansions/bling are worth. What do you need to pay this motherfucker who's worth at least $300m to fix the fight? $500m, $1B cash? That'd be way more than the entire sportsbook pool in Vegas. There's no upside to fixing something like that for a bettor or Mayweather.

See amount of betting on the Superbowl: http://heavy.com/sports/2017/02/how-much...uper-bowl/

If the line stays at -550 to -600 on Mayweather, I'll likely bet 10x my normal bet - too easy to make money all at once on this fight.
