The pair’s lightweight bout will headline the pay-per-view event taking place Saturday night which is exclusive to the
McGregor opened as the favorite but became an even bigger favorite earlier this week as he went from opening as a -175 favorite to going in the range of -275 to -340.
Poirier, meanwhile, went from opening as a +150 underdog to going in the range of +210 to +260.
How have the odds changed since? The Irishman’s odds have slightly lengthened as he now ranges from a -283 to -350 favorite while Poirier is as low as a +270 underdog.
That means you would have to bet $283 to win $100 on McGregor, while a $100 stake on Poirier would win you as much as $270.
It appears the confidence — as well as money — is on a McGregor win and it will only increase as fight night approaches.
That said, there’s even greater value if you’re banking on a Poirier upset.
