Did any of you bet on Conor McGregor to beat Floyd Mayweather over the weekend?
If you did, you’re a fool. A brave one but a fool nonetheless. There was absolutely no way McGregor – talented in his own way no question – was gonna make Mayweather 49-1.
For one, the veteran boxer is the single greatest defensive boxer of all time. Secondly, McGregor isn’t.
But no money was to be made betting on Mayweather, given his victory was a surefire thing leading up to it. Unless, of course, you are Dan Bilzerian.
The part-time pro poker player/international player bet big on the 40-year-old and came up trumps.
Get a load of this:
$342,150. At the very latest, he would have had to bet $1,197,525 to make that green.
Just another day at the office for Bilzerian obviously, but freaking eye-watering to the rest of us.
With that much money, I’d try and buy Las Vegas. Or just gamble loads, put it all down the pan and cry for three years.
