Vegas Gambling Steam tweeted out that a source has the star boxer betting a large sum that the Heat will cover the mammoth spread for Game 7.
**ALERT** Good source from my #HeavyHitters Vegas crew alerted me that Floyd Mayweather has laid over $5,900,000 on Heat -7 tonight in Vegas— Vegas Gambling Steam (@Pregame_Steam) June 3, 2013
Of course, we may not know for sure whether Money May plunked down a hefty sum unless the Heat win big in what is sure to be a raucous conclusion to the series. The boxer, who is undefeated in the ring, likes to show off his seemingly impeccable betting record any chance he gets.
Grantland's Dermot Hunt did a great job breaking down a nearly flawless run for Mayweather at the sportsbook in an article posted in September 2012.
At that time, the boxer had "tweeted photographs of 46 betting slips, totaling $3,890,833 worth of bets, and every single one of them was a winner, netting the fighter a cool $3,938,722 (and 87 cents) in winnings on those bets."
While the article goes on to say Mayweather may not be as flawless in the Vegas sportsbook as he has been in the ring, it's clear he loves to keep up the persona of perfection, especially when it comes to throwing mountains of cash at the latest Vegas line.
The Miami Heat are coming off a humbling 91-77 loss in Indiana on Saturday, one that takes them to the brink of elimination. Still, the line reflects a team that was 37-4 at home during the regular season—and one that hasn't lost two games in a row since Jan. 8 and 10.
With an alleged sum of close to $6 million on the game, Mayweather may be the Heat's biggest fan Monday night. Still, he will be just fine if things go south for Miami against the Pacers, because Celebrity Networth puts Mayweather's net worth at about $140 million.
If you are looking for confirmation that Money May actually bet this ridiculous amount on a huge game, you'd better hope the Heat pull off a big win. Otherwise, Mayweather may just burn that losing ticket as if it were a $100 bill.
