Question What percentage of the whole turkey is the breast?

I'm trying to decide if I want to smoke whole turkeys or breast. Most of the people only eat the breast meat. I've searched and haven't found an answer. If my question doesn't make sense here is an example:
How much of a 14 lb turkey is the breast? I've heard 1/2 or more.
Whole turkeys this week are $1.19 and breast are $1.59.
14 lb turkey or 7 - 8 lb breast?
