Sports betting is a game of chance for sports fans. People bet on their favorite and make money. Celebrities in this gambling business are no exception. Most of the famous people are athletes. They are well versed in sports and have enough money to seriously earn money on it.

Gamingpost.net will tell you about 10 famous people who are seriously into betting.

Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan is one of the most popular NBA superstars of all time. Jordan did not explain the reason for his resignation, but according to rumors, he did it for a reason - the NBA prohibits its players from betting on sports. In an interview, the superstar eventually admitted that he had indeed lost millions of dollars in sports betting. It is still unclear if his retirement has anything to do with this.

50 Cent

50 Cent is a well-known American rapper and actor who also boasts a lot about his big bets. He once tweeted about his college football bet on the Giants, who were playing against the 49ers. He said he made a $500,000 bet.

Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen is an American actor and screenwriter. Many viewers fell in love with him after the movie "Two and a Half Men." Shin had a lot of problems with gambling addiction, including the man who spent colossal money on bets. His ex-wife Denise Richards once stated that Charlie can spend up to $200,000 a week on bets alone.

Ben Affleck

Batman star Ben Affleck has always been a fan of gambling. He is also known for visiting casinos with his celebrity friends, such as Leonardo DiCaprio. Ben also faced a gambling addiction. In 2001, he even underwent a rehabilitation course for gambling addiction and alcoholism. Ben still makes bets from time to time.

Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher is known to the public as an American actor and presenter. He also starred in Two and a Half Men as a replacement for Charlie Sheen. In 2013, Kutcher was interviewed by Esquire and admitted to betting on American football. Ashton said: "We got about $750,000 in four weeks of college football. It was quite fun".

Floyd Mayweather Jr.

American boxer Mayweather Jr. is known not only for sports. Mayweather spends millions on bets. He backed the Colorado soccer team with a $50,000 stake and won $45,000 on it. He also once made a $1.1 million bet on the Oregon State team. The boxer does not consider this money to be a big expense, as his net worth is about $400 million.

Jaromir Jagr

Another former athlete is Jaromir Jagr. He is a professional Czech ice hockey player and the highest-paid NHL star of the 90s. He supplemented his already large earnings with sports betting, but in the end he “burned out”. The athlete's account is $500,000 in losses at an online bookmaker's office. The public learned this news when Jagr at some point was unable to pay his debts. Ultimately, he will pay all his debts and leave his gambling activities in the past.

Pete Rose

Better known to the public as Charlie Hustle, a professional American baseball player. During his career with the Cincinnati Reds, Pete Rose played 500 games. However, his baseball career came to an end when his addiction to sports betting became known. The club forbade him to continue playing for the team. Rose himself never admitted this and denied that he was making bets.

However, fourteen years later, Rose released an autobiography entitled My Prison Without Bars. In this book, he finally admitted to betting on his team every game. It came at a cost - Rose lost his career and the chance to get into the Hall of Fame.

Paul Hornung

Paul Hornburg was a professional American football player. He has competed in the FIFA World Cup four times with the Green Bay Packers. Despite his prominence, he was disqualified for the entire 1963 season for betting $ 100-500 on NFL and NASC games. This is not much money compared to the millions spent on betting. But even such an oversight became decisive for the career of a professional athlete.

Brian "Birdman" Williams

American rapper and producer Birdman posted on Instagram his $ 100K bet against fellow rapper AR-Ab in 2018. He bet the Patriots against the Eagles to win in the Super Bowl. The rate rose to $200,000. But after the match this post disappeared, and the match ended in victory for Orlov. After the Super Bowl, AR-Ab posted a selfie with a huge pile of money on Instagram. The posts have since been deleted. It remains a mystery if Birdman paid his $200,000.
