Floyd Mayweather Jr. Makes $5.9 Million Bet on Heat To Win Tonight

Floyd Mayweather Jr. ain't care.

The boxer -- who is known for laying down huge wagers on crazy shit -- has reportedly plunked down $5.9 Million dollars on tonight's Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers.

And you're struggling to stay cool because your happiness and fandom are on the line with this game!

According to Vegas Gambling Steam, Mayweather "laid over $5,900,000 on Heat -7 tonight in Vegas."

For you non-gamblers, that means Floyd has bet $5.9 Million bucks for the Heat to beat the Pacers, and to do it by seven points. That number could climb throughout the day, depending on where the line goes from -7.

According to Buzzfeed, Mayweather made $4.3 Million in 2012 on betting alone.

He apparently bet $5,393,754 in 2012.

For the record, Mayweather is projected to make $90 million in 2013, according to Sports Illustrated.

Number two on that list? LeBron James at $56.5 million.
