Floyd Mayweather Gambles, Wins Big On Sunday

Boxing Star Has Nice Payday After Broncos Cover The Spread


According to a report from ESPN, boxing star Floyd Mayweather had a good Sunday betting on the National Football League.

Mayweather reportedly bet $815,000 on the Broncos to beat the Jets by more than 7.5 points. He collected $1.4 million from the CG Technology sports book at the M Resort.

A late Broncos interception off of New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith that resulted in a touchdown covered the point spread in the Broncos’ 31-17 win on Sunday in New Jersey.

Earlier this year, Mayweather put $13 million on the Broncos to win the Super Bowl.

This is the same Mayweather who recently tipped $0 on a $25,000 Las Vegas club tab.

Despite Mayweather’s big bet that paid off, Nevada sports books reportedly had a good weekend, like they usually do. In 2013, Nevada sports books won $200 million.

The biggest chunk of that revenue comes from the NFL.
