Floyd Mayweather Bet $5 Million on Miami Heat in Game 7


Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is no stranger to placing large bets, and he was back in action on Monday when he laid down $5.9 million on the Miami Heat. Luckily for Mayweather, the Heat were able to cover the seven-point spread and he was able to cash in for another $5 million. Not too bad while you are in your “offseason”.

For those who are interested, here is Mayweather’s betting slip:

That’s not too bad of a pay day.

Mayweather has too much money to know what to do with, so I suppose it is only reasonable that he throws his money down on a ridiculous bet.

If all goes according to the plan. Rob will find his girl, but that doesn’t seem too likely for the outspoken ginger.

    I wonder how much money he has lost gambling.

    Photoshopped.

    1. While I’m not a professional sports gambler by any stretch, even I know you can’t just walk into any ‘ol casino, drop a six million dollar bet, and walk out with a paper slip from the guy working the book. For that type of wager, you’re going to have to sign some paperwork with upper management, there’s going to be secured banking involved, etc.

    2. Most Sportbooks have a gambling limit. Even the big ones. I’m pretty sure six million exceeds what I’d consider a reasonable limit even in a city of excess like Las Vegas.

    3. The Sunset Station is a hokey casino. I doubt they would even be able to handle a wager of this caliber.

    4. Last I checked, several websites had the Heat (-7) at -360. Meaning a payout of a $5.9 million dollar bet would only be about $1.6 million. Not $5.3

      FYI, the guys who own Sunset Station also own Zuffa…aka Ultimate Fighting Championship.
