LOOK: LeSean McCoy won a monstrous amount of money betting Warriors in NBA Finals
The Bills running back might need to open another bank account
If you're looking for NBA gambling tips next season, you might want to start following LeSean McCoy on Instagram, because he definitely seems to know what he's doing when it comes to betting on professional basketball.
Before the series started, McCoyand bet a small fortune on the Warriors to beat the Cavs.
His bet total? $200,000.
If that sounds like a big bet, that's because it is, even by Vegas standards. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the $200,000 bet was the largest NBA Finals bet placed at Planet Hollywood.
It also wasn't just chump change for McCoy: His bet represented roughly 3.3 percent of what he'll make in base salary with the Bills this season ($6 million). So yes, we can probably assume that he was throwing things at his TV after the Cavs won Game 4.
The good news for McCoy is that his bet didn't go to waste. After the WarriorsMonday, McCoy's ticket became a winner.
Since the Warriors were a -260 favorite (meaning you have to wager $260 to win $100), McCoy "only" won $62,500 on his bet. I never have that kind of luck in Vegas. I clearly need to start hanging out with McCoy because hewhenever he's in town.
Ironically enough, the day after the Finals ended, McCoy missed practice in Buffalo because of a "stomach virus." Now, I'm not saying he didn't have a stomach virus, but if I won a $62,500 bet, I probably wouldn't be showing up for work the next day, either.
Anyway, if you're wondering whether or not McCoy might get suspended by the NFL for gambling on the NBA Finals, the answer is no. Under the league's gambling policy, players aren't allowed to bet on NFL games, but they can wager on other team sports.
