Floyd Mayweather Jr.: I made $827,272 betting on sports this weekend

Floyd Mayweather Jr. says he made more than $800,000 betting on sports over the last four days

Adding further credence to the notion someone has to have money in order make money, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has fared pretty well betting on sports over the last four days.

In a post on Instagram, the undefeated boxer boasted about his acumen for predicting NBA point spreads and Gennady Golovkin's continued rise in the boxing world, saying he cashed in big time.

Here's how Mayweather claims he made $827,272.73 on four bets totaling $350,000: He bet the Houston Rockets would beat the money line in Game 6 vs. the Clippers; wagered the Atlanta Hawks would beat the second-half point spread against the Washington Wizards in Game 6; predicted Golovkin would knock out William Monroe Jr. before the end of the sixth round; and, finally, that the Clippers would finish ahead of the second-half spread in Game 7.

"The last 4 days have been great," Mayweather wrote on Instagram. "I'm getting paid while watching others entertain and perform. I don't do anything for free."

Mayweather reportedly took home around $200 million for his 12-round welterweight title victory over Manny Pacquiao on May 2.
