If LeBron James suffers a sprained ankle tonight, Floyd Mayweather Jr. will probably lose $5.9 million.

According to Vegas Gambling Steam, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has bet $5.9 million that the Heat will eliminate the Indiana Pacers in tonight’s Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals in Miami.

A degenerate gamester, the 36-year-old Mayweather (44-0, 26 KOs) needs the Heat to trump Indiana by more than seven points to win.

Projected to make $90 million in 2013, Mayweather was ranked the highest-earning American athlete for the second consecutive year by Sports Illustrated last month.

Throwing fists at a catchweight of 152 pounds, The Ring “Fighter of the Year” in 1998 and 2007 is slated to scrap Saul Alvarez on September 14 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Set for Mexican Independence Day weekend, Mayweather is expected to net roughly $50 million to battle the 22-year-old Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KOs).

Regardless how wealthy, it’s abnormal for an individual to wager nearly $6 million on a single contest.

As great as the reigning pound-for-pound king is inside the squared circle, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is equally troubled outside of it.
