Floyd Mayweather nets $200k betting on A&M, Manziel

Floyd Mayweather

Seemingly anyone and everyone can make money off of Johnny Manziel except for the Texas A&M quarterback himself.  As of Saturday evening, you can include amidst the everyone arguably the most famous pugilist in the world.

On his Twitter account yesterday, noted sports wagering connoisseur Floyd Mayweather revealed that he had placed a bet — $220,000 to be specific — on the Aggies covering the first-half spread in their game against SMU.  As the spread was set at 17.5, and A&M led the Mustangs 32-6 after two quarters, Mayweather laid claim to a huge — well, “huge” for most people who didn’t just collect $40 million last week — jackpot.

For betting $220,000 on A&M to cover, Mayweather won a quick $200,000.

In revealing his latest wagering win on the collegiate front — he reportedly bet millions on the Alabama-Michigan last year, among others — the unbeaten welterweight champion managed to thank Manziel for the pocket change and take a shot in at the NCAA in one fell swoop.

Interestingly, Mayweather’s “may not be able to make money off himself but I can” blast came on the same day as several players from a handful of teams protested the NCAA’s treatment of them as a group, including pushing for increased stipends to cover the full cost of attendance.

    He never tweets when he loses a bet, only when he wins, and I’m sure he does… The most astute gambler doesn’t win every bet..

    Was just thinking last night that gambling is a fool’s pastime. The odds are always with the house. For every story like this, there are thousands about people who lost everything throwing good money after bad.

    As already stated, he never boasts about all the losses since I’m sure that’s not the only bet he laid down this weekend. He probably lost 10 times that amount this weekend but we don’t hear about that do we? He makes a lot of money sure, but I’m also sure he blows a lot of that or else why keep doing what he’s doing, getting beat on the head risking your livelihood, your future if it’s not for the money, or the ego?

    ask anyone around Las Vegas that’s ever had to deal with him and you’ll hear nothing but bad things.He treats people like dirt and then throws money expecting that to make it ok.

    He’ll be broke within ten years after he’s finished fighting.

    There was also a little snippet in the Review-Journal (Vegas newspaper) that Mayweather bought a $200,000 Bentley this week. So, in some strange way, it’s like Manziel and A&M paid for Floyd’s new wheels.

    Vegas was built because people never quit when they are ahead, and bragg to everyone of their winnings. Never hear the ruined life stories because they don’t cover losses and losers in the press. Not that I would put it back totally under the control of organized crime. At least Mayweather can cover his losses, for a while——
