The Twitter avatar bet is slowly becoming the wager of choice for many professional athletes whose teams square off in the NCAA Tournament (or bowl games). The latest example? Former Syracuse football star Chandler Jones and former Michigan standout Zoltan Mesko put it all on the line for the Final Four game Saturday night. The two are currently teammates for the New England Patriots. Of course, Jones lost the bet after Michigan triumphed over Syracuse.

It’s a toss up. Twitter @zoltanmesko good game… You pick the picture.. Ill change the avi — Chandler Jones (@Chan95Jones) April 7, 2013 []
