An exciting day ahead…
What a day. I’ve been waiting for this weekend for a while. Kentucky Derby on hand just before 7 pm EST in Louisville. I wish I could be there. I’m busy working in the office today, though. The race only lasts two minutes but what a day it’ll be.
Between this and the Mayweather Pacquiao fight, I can only imagine the amount of money on the sports books. I don’t have a favorite here. I’m just excited to see these two go toe to toe. It could be as exciting as past Mike Tyson fights. I just hope it doesn’t end as fast.
From what I’m reading, between $60 million and $80 million worth of bets are likely for the fight. That’s unprecedented. MGM alone received a $500,000 bet on Pacquiao just yesterday.
The last time this much money was bet on a fight was in September 2013 between Mayweather and Canelo. About $25 million was bet. I just remember the crowd cheering for Canelo but he was no match for Mayweather.
Enjoy the day ahead, my friends. It should be a great one. Take good care.
Back to work for me…
