By SportsbookReview.com Floyd Mayweather Jr. is perfect as a boxer. 43 opponents have challenged him and 43 opponents have lost. Not only is he the best boxer of our generation, he’s one of the all-time greats. Even so, ‘Money’ Mayeather isn’t perfect overall. Mayweather loves to place massive sports bets, including last season’s Super Bowl and the NBA Finals. While he’s done a pretty good job of winning most of those bets, he did experience the taste of defeat. Mayweather tweeted out that he lost $100,000 on the Detroit Lions in the first half of their Week 1 contest. However, he also placed $100,00 bets on the New England Patriots and San Diego Chargers, both of whom covered easily. One of his biggest bets of the week was a $250,000 wager on the Atlanta Falcons, which also came through as they won 40-24 as three-point favorites. However, there were rumors that Mayweather laid $3 million on the Michigan Wolverines +14 when they faced the Alabama Crimson Tide in their season opener. Michigan got crushed but Mayweather denied the reports. Most of Mayweather’s betting is done at the Cantor Gaming sports book at M Resort where he has a special “Money” account. He could just as easily open up an offshore account and place his bets online, which saves him the hassle of having to walk into the casino to place those bets. For the most part, it looks like Mayweather Jr. prefers to place straight-up bets but he might want to look into NFL teasers for extra security. He can get some extra points on the point spread to give him some breathing room in case any of his other picks go awry. Don’t worry about his losses too much, though. He earned an estimated $35 million from his last victory over Miguel Cotto earlier this year.
