There's A rumour That Floyd Mayweather Is Betting $5.9 Million On The Miami Heat Tonight

The gambling site Pregame.com says the word on the street is that boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is putting nearly $6 million on the Miami Heat tonight in Game 7.

The Heat are seven-point favourites.

Mayweather is a big-time sports bettor who’s always tweeting out pictures of his winning tickets. This would be the biggest bet we’ve seen from him.

He’s also the highest-earning athlete in the world, and he just inked a deal to fight Canelo Alvarez for a rumoured $40 million.

He was in attendance for Game 5 of the Heat-Pacers series. We’ll see if he’s there tonight.
