    Seems outrageous to the everyday person. But for one of the worlds highest paid atheletes, those kinds of wagers are just a drop in the bucket. Would like to see some of his losing bets. He probably doesn't post those to his instagram account lol.

    What casino is he making these bets at?

    I doubt he's posting losses. I'd be willing to bet his losses are exceeding his wins.

    Looks like these tickets are from the M Resort.

    I agree. I would think if his winnings were exceeding his losses he would show how he was "robbed" by the interception at the end of the game but came back with these winners to end up a winner......

    But he is an illusionist so only winning tickets are probably reality for his world.

    These tickets are all from the M Resort at different days and different times. I'm wondering if he has a runner do his betting for him or if he's actually spending that much time at the M Resort. Seems like a good way to get an autograph is to spend a lot of time at the M Resort sports book.

    if they are taking that action from him he isn't beating them he is likely down and just not posting losing tickets
    if he didn't get the miracle cover in the Jets game what chance is there that the ticket would have been posted online

    That won't last forever. Those losses will start to pile up sooner or later and he'll be living in the sewers by the time he's 60.

    It's like the TR section here. The TRs that aren't live, are biased with winning trips. And the live TRs that don't get finished are probably biased with losing trips.

    books will cut your limits in a heartbeat so as I said before they aren't taking his action unless they know he is losing
    are any pics of these tickets posted before the game starts

    He seems to be a bit more focused on managing his money and investments than guys like Tyson but I think the hard part for most of these athletes that like to live large is tamping it down once the money stops rolling in. Especially since they are still young at that time. He'd have to be really really foolish to lose it all by any point in his life....though I know its happened to a lot of guys. Hopefully he keeps current on his taxes because that seems to be one of the big things that bites these guys down the road.

    I don't know. I thought... or at least I've heard... that Cantor is pretty loose and much more willing to accept action from advantage players/sharps.

    My theory is the more you get punched in the head, the more foolish you become. :thumbsup:

    Cantor is much more loose than say William Hill but I know some people who have a hard time getting a bet down at M that is not anywhere in the ballpark near the amounts this guy is betting.
    I would wager long-term there is almost no chance he is winning.

    I saw on a showtime special before one of this fights (Canelo I think it was) that he sends people to make the bets and to collect for him. They showed one of his ladies filling a big purse with bricks of cash...

    IG doesnt show detail posting time...

    He has been working with Warren Buffett closely lately...trying to "turn his $100M into $1B"

    Mayweather never posts losing tix and he only posts his winning ones after the game. He does wager at M resort, I think there was a youtube video with him driving from his home to the M going to collect on some winning wagers. He did take a big hit betting my broncos last Super Bowl.

    Yes, I read this in an article one time too that he used runners with duffel bags of cash at the M Resort which is supposedly pretty close to where he lives. Also, a year or so ago when I followed him on Twitter he would actually post losing tickets. But at a 5-1 ratio of winning to losing and I think we all know that no one wins that much. :wink2:

    considering his age, and his current bankroll he will have seen and done it all, living in the sewers will just be lifes final adventure for a guy like that...

    Simply no rational justification to make such a statement.
