Floyd Mayweather Cashes in Big on $100K Patriots Bet


September 10, 2012

Tom Brady and the Patriots gave Floyd Mayweather 100,000 reasons to smile Sunday after beating the Titans 34-13.

Mayweather bet $100,000 on the Pats, which he proved by tweeting out an Instagram picture of a betting slip. The bet was for New England to cover by -3 at the half with -110 odds.

Mayweather reaped the benefits of a strong first-half defensive effort by the Patriots, including a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown by rookie linebacker Dont'a Hightower.

With the Pats ahead 21-3 after two quarters, Mayweather took home $90,909.10 in winnings. However, Mayweather isn't undefeated in his bets like he is in boxing career, as his next tweet showed him losing $100,000 taking the Lions to cover by -6 in the first half against the Rams. The Lions were shockingly behind 13-10 after two quarters.

Mayweather fortunately has money to throw around. In his last bout with Miguel Cotto back in May, Mayweather took home $32 million in earnings.
