Floyd Mayweather has made a lot of money betting on the Warriors
No one bets on sports and brags about their winnings quite like Floyd Mayweather, who has earned more than a quarter of a million dollars betting on the Golden State Warriors in the last nine days.
Mayweather posted a few of his bets on Instagram, and before Game 1 of the NBA Finals he placed a $70,000 bet on the Warriors to outscore the Cavaliers by more than three points in the first half. Golden State held a 52-43 advantage at halftime, which won Mayweather just over $60,000.

A few days earlier, Mayweather put down $170k on the Warriors to win Game 6 of the Western Conference finals and won $221,000.
Mayweather doesn’t publicize his bets quite as often as he used to, but he’s a prolific gambler. He made more than $4.3 million according to betting slips he shared on Instagram and Twitter in 2012 alone.
