09:59 AM ET 09.22 | Boxer Floyd Mayweather got his money's worth out of Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and the Aggies in their 42-13 win over SMU on Saturday. Mayweather, who has a history of making large sports bets, tweeted out a photo of his winning betting slip, one which showed a $200,000 return on a $220,000 wager on the Aggies: "Congratulations @JManziel2 for putting on a fantastic show. He may not be able to make money off himself but I can."

The Dallas Morning News is normally classier than this. Scouring the Twitterverse for juicy tidbits is more in line with ESPN and TMZ.

It's the electronic version of flashin' some cash. I could care less how much money he won.

Am I missing something here, or did he actually win 200,000 for betting 220,000? Why are we reporting when someone loses 20,000 on a bet?

Agree, Van; those sports celebs who enjoy gambling big often wind up broke and living on handouts after their income-producing days are over.

1) He is a boxer who just had a fight in which he took some shots to the head.
2) He has tons of money
3) He has a problem with math.
4)His accountant gets paid loads of money to tell him... "That was a great investment."

Vig: 10% If you win you get $200K if you lose you owe $220K. It how any bookmaker makes a living. A guys got to eat. Don't ask me how I know....Won some, lost some. It is why you want even books and the spread changes day to day to entice money on the side that is not getting enough love from the betting public....

I hope people realize he only tweets when he wins. WHO KNOWS how much he has lost.

September 22, 2013  12:48 PM ET

Good for him.

Interesting. I haven't had a chance to see Oklahoma in action this season.

Who have they played thus far?

What's a 200,000 bet to Mayweather? Like a 20 dollar bet to a normal mortal.

Make sure you keep Floyd's income taxes low, btw. He certainly hasn't benefited from living in America and shouldn't have to contribute a higher rate of taxes on his $100 mil a year he earns, in fact he should pay the same rate as school janitor who earns $30,000 a year. Their lives and needs are virtually identical, republicans told me so.

I can.

Oklahoma is going to beat Notre Dame by double digits, so 2.5 his nothing to give up on that game. Washington is going to beat Arizona by 20-30 so that's another lucrative betting line. Kentucky seems to stink but so does Florida. Who knows about UF's new QB. Ohio St. ought to win by 30 vs. Wisconsin so 7.5 would draw me into a bet if I were a betting person.

I would say print your post out, mark it with the teams you're certain will cover and how stupid the oddsmakers are, keep it in your pocket like Charlie from Willy Wonka all week long and then Saturday night pull out your golden ticket and all your answers will be revealed. And if you're lucky, you'll be singing the night away with Uncle Joe.

You won't win a dime, but you won't lose one either. And Uncle Joe looks great in his nightshirt.
