Miami Heat

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – No one has ever questioned the confidence of boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. But his latest gamble may generate quite a bit of Heat here in Miami.

Mayweather reportedly bet $5.9 million on Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Mayweather dropped the money on the Heat beating the Pacers Monday night at the AmericanAirlines Arena, according to the Twitter feed for pregame.com.

Not only is Mayweather convinced the Heat can win, he thinks they can win big! The Heat is an early seven-point favorites over the Indiana Pacers in Game 7 and Mayweather didn’t take the points, meaning if the Heat wins by six or fewer points, he loses.

Still, Mayweather betting $5.9 million on a basketball game is akin to the normal person dropping a few hundred bucks. Mayweather is one of the highest paid athletes in the world and could make upwards of $100 million this year.
