They don’t call this guy “Money” for nothing. He seemingly has himself (money) coming out of his ears and isn’t afraid to put himself (money) on the line. He’s made large wagers on sporting events in the past including winning $400,000 on Alabama’s BCS National Championship game last year.
He also (wisely) bet against Tim Tebow in last year’s playoffs when Denver traveled to New England to face the Patriots in the AFC Divisional round. The result: 41-23 Patriots and $1 million in Mayweather’s pocket. That bet seems like chump change for this one though.
According to a bookie on Twitter, Mayweather is going to be rooting hard for Denard Robinson and the Michigan football Wolverines this weekend in the Cowboys Classic against the Alabama Crimson Tide. So much so that “Money” is putting up $3 million monies on Michigan covering the 12-point spread.
I know $3,000 is called “three large”, but what do you call $3 million, “three huge”? Either way, risky bet, especially with the playing status of Michigan’s best running back Fitz Touissant still in question because of an offseason DUI. But I guess when they call you Money, the little things don’t matter — and apparently the “huge” things don’t either.
