50 Cent thought he was putting up big stacks when he threw down a $500, 000 bet on the New York Giants in Sunday’s NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers, but Birdman is stepping it up just a notch. According to his tweets, the Cash Money CEO is betting an astounding $5 million on the New England Patriots to take home another ring in Super Bowl XLVI, when they play ball against Eli Manning and the Giants on February 5.
“I like New ENGLaNd.my nephew play RB# 42.I’m Bet 5million 2 any ni—-.like tha Giants YMCMB.BabyMoney anybody kan Getit,” Birdman wrote on Twitter Monday (January 23). But even for Birdman, $5 million seems like a hefty bet.
Last year the New Orleans native bet $1 million on the Green Bay Packers—Lil Wayne’s favorite team—who managed to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers and earn him a pretty penny in return. Super Bowl XLVI will be held in Indianapolis on February 5, and we can’t wait to see Birdman’s tweets following the game.
