During halftime of the Bulls/Hawks game last night, Mayweather felt that luck was on his side and decided to make a $41,000 bet that Atlanta wouldn’t outscore the Bulls by six points or more in the second half.
Yeah you read that right, $41,000.
The bet he laid down was the Bulls getting 5.5 points.
Since the Bulls were already “murking” the Hawks 72-43, Atlanta became the second half “favorite.”
With Derrick Rose and the Bulls crushing the Hawks 114-81, Mayweather easily won the bet and was awarded $37,272.75, darn near doubling what he originally put down.
After receiving his winnings, Mayweather decided to do what he does best, which is flaunting and/or talking about money, and tweeted a picture of the betting slip with the words, “My lil brother Derrick Rose will always get you Paid.”
The tweet has since been deleted. Maybe he still owes money to the I.R.S. or someone else.
Jorgen Johnson, who is the M Resort sportsbook supervisor, told ESPNChicago.com columnist, Jon Greenberg that he couldn’t comment on Mayweather’s gambling transaction.
Jorgen Johnson –
“We can’t really discuss it. It’s a privacy issue. He does like to put his tickets on Twitter.”
Now for those of you who have a Twitter account and follow the Manny Pacquiao dodging, money flaunting boxer, you already know that this isn’t the first time he has tweeted out a betting slip.
Back on Christmas Day, “Money” tweeted out a betting slip after placing a $40K bet on the Heat/ Lakers game that day.
I am sure this wont be the last betting slip “Money May” will tweet out.
