Floyd Mayweather Wins $1.4 Million betting on Colts

Floyd Mayweather is the current WBC, WBA and Ring welterweight champion, as well as the title holder for the mythical "best pound-for-pound fighter in the world." He is also one of the most controversial figures in sports. Well, it turns out he is a heavy hitter in the casinos as well.

Over the past three weekends, Mayweather has posted Instagram snapshots of betting slips he received from some rather large wagers made on National Football League (NFL) games.

The first wager took place on September 21st. According to the betting slip, which looks authentic, Mayweather wagered $720,000.00US on The Indianapolis Colts to cover the 7-point spread against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The ticket was scheduled to payout $1,405,714.28US if the Colts covered. By 1:00 PM PST, the result was in and the Colts had won the game 44-17. That represents a cool $685,714.28US profit for Mr. Mayweather.

The comment with the snapshot read "Before I went on a 2-week vacation, I bet $720,000.00 and I walked away with $1,405,714.28. When you're betting on Andrew, it's never Luck." Such a humble man.

It didn't take long before he was back in action for the October 6th Monday Night Football game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Washington Redskins. This time, Mayweather bet $220,000.00US on the Seahawks to cover the 7-point spread. With a final score of 27-17 in favor of the Seahawks, Mayweather collected another $420,000.00US for a profit of $200,000.00US.

For most folks, these amounts represent years and years of working wages. For Mayweather, these amounts are probably his running around cash. Many fans will remember rumors that were circulating right after the February Superbowl game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos. After the Seahawks won the game in a route, rumors came out that Mayweather had wagered over $10M US on the Broncos.

While Mayweather denied the rumors leaving them unsubstantiated, his prior gambling profile screamed that anything was possible. It's not that crazy to think that one of the highest paid athletes in world would make that kind of bet given his history for excess.
