*He may be knucklehead in his personal life, but in the ring and at the sports betting table is pure MONEY.
Like they say, give the devil credit for living in Hell. The bottom line is Floyd Mayweather Jr. knows HOW to make money.
This past Sunday he did it again in ‘Vegas, thanks to the NFL, reports ESPN:
Two last-second interceptions returned for touchdowns by the Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals delivered million-dollar blows to Las Vegas sports books, including a $600,000 hit from boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib picked off New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith and returned it 22 yards for a touchdown that covered the point spread in the Broncos’ 31-17 win. Mayweather bet $815,000 on the Broncos to beat the Jets by more than 7.5 points. He laid -130 juice and collected $1.4 million from the CG Technology sports book at the M Resort.
“Floyd didn’t watch the game here,” Simbal said, “but he certainly showed up shortly thereafter to cash.”
Talib’s pick-six electrified crowds at the sports books across Vegas and caused six- and seven-figure swings that went against the house. It also caused some damage inside the back office of the MGM Mirage sports book.
“The place went absolutely berserk,” MGM’s vice president of race and sports, Jay Rood, said. “I kicked a hole in the wall. I’ll leave it as a reminder of my feelings toward Geno Smith.”
