(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–According to Vegas Gambling Steam, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has bet $5.9 million on the Miami Heat to win Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
The line was -7 when Mayweather placed his bet, meaning that the Heat not only have to beat the Pacers, but have to beat them by more than seven.
KXNT’s Brian Shapiro spoke with RJ Bell of pregame.com who’s site has been referenced in this story and Bell said quote “yes he probably has a big bet on this game but no that’s exactly this amount”. Bell believes that Mayweather is placing multiple bets in multiple locations and maybe involved with professional bettors who he’s placing bets for.
The Heat are back home Monday night for Game 7 after dropping Game 6, 91-77, to the Pacers in Indiana. The winner moves on to face the Spurs in the NBA Finals, starting Thursday, June 6th.
