- More than 20,000 punters share in $2.8m after backing Horn to beat Pacquiao
- 9 times as many bets placed on the Aussie compared to Pacquiao
- Horn installed as $2.40 outsider for rematch
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au took a battering of its own thanks to Jeff Horn’s amazing upset win over Manny Pacquiao.
Punters backed the Hornet to win a total of $2.9 million.
As much as $5.50 was originally on offer for Horn to win, while a Horn Points victory was paying $16.
Despite the result, Horn finds himself as the $2.40 outsider for a rematch, should it happen. Pacquiao is priced at $1.55 to exact revenge.
“Punters delivered the knockout blow to us yesterday but we’ll get up off the canvas and hopefully get another shot at the title in the rematch,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
