Two conflicting reports coming out of Vegas.
**ALERT** Good source from my #HeavyHitters Vegas crew alerted me that Floyd Mayweather has laid over $5,900,000 on Heat -7 tonight in Vegas

Rumor: Floyd Mayweather bet $5.9 Million on #Heat. Fact: NOT A SINGLE reliable source has provided any confirmation of this.

If they are correct, that is an insane of amount of money, even for Mayweather to bet on a basketball game, but it does make watching it more intriguing.
If you aren’t a gambler laying the over on -7 just means that the Heat can’t just win for Mayweather to win his bet, they have to beat the Pacers by 7 or more points. If Heat win by more than 7, Mayweather will win approximately $5.3 million.
If that happens he will cash out, but if he loses, well I guess it won’t matter that much since he will make over $50 million fighting Canelo Alvarez, but that would be more than 10% of his earnings.
If you had $50 and someone took $10, you would be upset even if you had $40 left.
