Arrogance in betting is the best way to lose your money. A good bet has less assumptions about variables. To say this is a great bet, especially when you have to outlay a grand just to win $270, is making a lot of assumptions.

Floyd will probably win, but you can make $270 without a.) Making a bunch of assumptions on something with no precedent and b.) Risking such a large sum of money on said assumptions.

"A good bet has less assumptions about variables"? Gimme a break man: in one corner you have someone who's never boxed professionally and has lost three times in a sport where he's seen as the dominant fighter in his weight class... versus arguably the greatest technical boxer who's ever lived and is undefeated 49-0. And they're competing in the latter's sport. If someone is being arrogant and/or making assumptions, it's the guy who is convinced that Mcgregor has a "good chance" of knocking Mayweather out... which is the only scenario I can see Mcgregor winning.

Your inexperience and/or naivete about sports betting comes through in your post as well. Mayweather's true odds should be 95%+ and yet the lines are only reflecting his chances for victory at 75-80%. That spread is a huge margin of safety and negates just about any variable outside of something truly outlandish and completely inconceivable happening. I'm talking about "fan-guy landing in the ring and knocking mayweather down breaking his arm" type bullshit.

Finally, if you think $1000 is a large sum of money, you're right, you should probably leave the betting for the big boys. Sharps and experienced bettors are easily going to be putting 6 and 7 figure bets on Mayweather as this is a once in a decade sort of opportunity. 25% returns in one hour don't come around very often.
