Mayweather's $300K bet missing zero
So Floyd Mayweather doesn't have as much faith in Johnny Manziel as we thought.
After winning $200,000 on Texas A&M last week and then telling Howard Stern that he would be putting up $300,000 on the arm of Manziel this week, Mayweather tweeted this after the Aggies beat the Razorbacks on Saturday:
When the betting line changed from -3 to -14, I couldn't bet $300k. Too dangerous.— Floyd Mayweather (@FloydMayweather) September 29, 2013
Well, $30,000 is very different from $300,000. Damn, Floyd, you chickened out. You had us thinking there was so much at stake. Johnny Football was probably shaking when he realized there wouldn't be a two-TD victory. I guess even the Money Team has its limits.
This wasn't the only cash Mayweather spread around college football Saturday. It looked like being bored equals more wagers for the champ. He wagered $100,000 to win $86,956.50 on the first half of the Miami Hurricanes game. Miami covered by leading at halftime 35-7.
I couldn't wait on Johnny Football. The early bird gets the $86,956 worm.. [pic] — https://t.co/5Rt5CKMwwl— Floyd Mayweather (@FloydMayweather) September 28, 2013
He also lost $40,000 on the second half, but what's that to Mayweather other than gas money for the jet?
Don't expect him to stay inside on a Saturday night counting his winnings either. Nope, he's hitting the strip club to share the wealth.
