Floyd Mayweather posted a picture to Twitter of a betting slip showing that he won $US200,000 betting on Texas A&M to have a lead of more than 17.5 points at halftime against SMU. A&M was leading 32-6 at the mid-point.
But if boasting about winning $US200,000 betting on half a game of football wasn’t enough, Mayweather took the moment to mock the NCAA’s rules that won’t let Johnny Manziel make money off his own name. The tweet read:
“Congratulations @JManziel2 for putting on a fantastic show. He may not be able to make money off himself but I can.”
Just another reminder that a lot of people are making money off of college athletes.
