Floyd Mayweather Jr. tweets more big winning bets
It looks like boxer Floyd Mayweather had a busy month of sports wagering to cap off 2011.
Mayweather posted photos of a handful of winning tickets Wednesday afternoon which totaled in excess of $766,000. The wagers were all made at M Resort and ranged from a $30,000 first half bet on Houston
against Penn State $400,000 wager on the San Francisco 49ers
Mayweather, who has never posted a photo of a losing ticket as far as we can tell, also made almost $73,000 on an Auburn
half time wager and cashed in on a $200,000 first half wager on the Wisconsin Badgers
in college hoops. Keep track of all of Mayweather's bets through his Twitter account
All these come after a rumor surfaced last week that Mayweather Jr. put down a $1 million wager against Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos in their Dec. 18 game against the New England Patriots.
The Broncos were set as 7-point home underdogs and ended up losing 41-23, snapping Denver’s six-game winning streak.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal interviewed Mike Colbert, sports director at M Resort about the rumored wager, but Colbert wouldn’t confirm or deny that Mayweather did place the bet. However, Colbert did confirm that Mayweather is a “valued customer.”
Mayweather was sentenced to 90 days in jail last week in connection with a domestic violence incident involving his children and their mother. Mayweather pleaded guilty to battery-domestic violence and no contest to two counts of harassment before a Las Vegas judge.
The WBC welterweight champion will report to prison in Las Vegas on Jan. 6 He also was sentenced to 100 hours of community service and ordered to pay a fine of $2,500.
