Money is just the perfect nickname for Floyd Mayweather. The boxer not only wins millions of dollars in the ring but he is a shrewd gambler, often winning thousands of dollars with a single bet.
On Saturday night, Mayweather bet big on Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors to win Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. The Warriors not only won but they also helped Mayweather quickly earn $200,000.
“Splash for the cash” is an appropriate way to describe Game 3. Curry scored 40 points and drained seven three-pointers as the Warriors annihilated the Rockets by 35 points. Golden State is now up 3-0 in the series and seem to be the sure bet to make the NBA Finals.
