Lil Wayne $5 Million Super Bowl Bet, Birdman is looking to make the Super Bowl interesting and called on his fans to ante up over twitter. The Cash Money co-founder said that he was willing to place $5 million on the New England Patriots to beat the Giants on February 5 at Super Bowl XLVI.

The rapper took to twitter on January 23rd to voice his support for the Patriots and announce his sizable bet. “I like New nephew play RB# 42.I’m Bet 5million 2 any ni— tha Giants YMCMB.BabyMoney anybody kan Getit,” wrote Birdman. Even by the rapper’s standards, the bet is massive as it represents nearly 5% of his estimated net worth of around $100 million and one-third of his annual income of $15 million according to calculations that Forbes made last May.

Last year, Birdman put $1 million on his Cash Money compatriot Lil Wayne’s favorite team, the Green Bay Packers, and came out on top. According to Cantor Gaming, the Patriots are a three point favorite, which is down from 2008 when they were a 14-point favorite, so at least Birdman is betting safe.
