Floyd Mayweather Made $4.3 Million Betting On Sports In 2012

He could’ve lost plenty, too — but generally only publicizes his winning bets.

Quote Floyd gave to David Mayo of MLive in March.

Pay-per-view sales for Floyd Mayweather’s May fight against Miguel Cotto topped $94 million dollars, and Mayweather personally raked in well north of $40 million. What does Money Mayweather do with all that money? He bets on sports, a lot (possibly too much) and posts pictures of his betting slips on Twitter.

Mayweather bets on the NFL. He bets on Gonzaga men’s basketball. He once bet on the Utah State football team. Most of his bets are relatively sure things, like a $33,000 bet that the then-No. 3 Duke Blue Devils basketball team would outscore 13-15 Wake Forest by seven in the first half. He cashes in on scores of low-risk bets by fronting an absurd amount of money, though he rarely tweets photos of his losing betting slips like he does with the winners. Here’s a month-by-month breakdown of Mayweather’s bets — a lot of profit here, but keep in mind, these are just the ones he publicly announced.
