[photogallerylink id=99098 align=left]Wizards have only won 6 games this season…that is…until LAST NIGHT! BUT! Wizards aren’t the only ones who won big, Boxer Floyd Mayweather took a leap of faith with the Wizards and bet BIG on their game last night against Portland.
During last night’s halftime, at M Resort in Las Vegas, Mayweather bet $25,000 saying that the Wizards WOULD maintain their lead over Portland.
The Wizards’ 124-109 win allowed Mayweather to walk away with a whooping $20,833.35. The money might seem like pocket change to the famous Boxer, however with the Wizards record of 6 wins and 22 losses for this season, it’s rare to find someone with such faith in them.
Additionally according to NBC, last night’s game was the first in franchise history that the Wizards have “won back-to-back games on the road by more than 15 points.”
