    He has some confidence that Miami will win by 7+, lol.

    As the article shows, when you're making 90mil a year, it ain't too bad.

    I'm surprised the line is so high though.

    Really? Team with best record in the NBA vs #3 Seed. Game 7. In Miami. History shows that Miami should be heavily favored in this game IMO.

    I agree, but a 7 point margin is MASSIVE in my mind. I do think Miami wins, but that's a line I'd avoid. I'd figure it would be maybe 3-4.

    When you make more than 500k, you are taxed like 45%.

    Athletes have to pay agents 5% too.

    After taxes, he makes 45mil, and you shouldn't be betting more than 10% of your salary in one game. This is a bad financial move, and he will broke pretty soon if he keeps on doing this.

    Isn't it 90mil without the endorsements.

    That said, no disagreements, and this isn't the first time Mayweather has been betting big. That said, I still find it hard to see him losing all his money with what he makes annually. Although AI proved me wrong in that regard.

    7 is pretty big but if miami goes on a big run, leads can push past 7 very quickly

    Honest question is Floyd legally allowed to bet on himself when he fights?

    Its sad when people like this make more than the average college graduate. Lord knows he doesn't have any financial education. A bet of that caliber is just stupid.

    Answer is no. Short legal answer is that it goes back to Pete Rose betting on his own team in baseball. It would not be in the best interst of the game to allow athletes to bet on themselves or their teams because depending on the amount they put down would sway average people who are betting on the game. E.g. if floyd is only betting 500K he is not confident he will win; however, when he bets big on himself people would see that as him being confident and bet more on him because he thinks he has a good chance to win.
    Jose, It's okay I use my powers for good now
