Online Sportsbook giant BetOnline.com has called out rapper Birdman, taking him up on his $5 million Super Bowl bet on the New England Patriots.
Birdman, also known as Baby, tweeted his support for the Pats and star quarterback Tom Brady last week because his nephew BenJarvus Green-Ellis played for the team.
“I like New ENGLaNd.my nephew play RB# 42.I'm Bet 5million 2 any ni**aaa.like tha Giants YMCMB.BabyMoney anybody kan Getit,” he posted, asking for takers.
Through Twitter, BetOnline.com tried to get their offer to the Big Tymer, then issued a formal release that has circulated on the web.
“If Birdman is prepared to put his money where his mouth is, we are prepared to accept his $5 million wager on either the point spread or the money line of Super Bowl XLVI”, said Sportsbook Brand Manager Dave Mason of BetOnline.com.
The terms for the bet are as follows: Should Birdman bet on the Patriots point spread at -3.5 (-110), he will put down $5 million to win $4,545,454. If Birdman places a bet on the Pats straight up the money line at -160, he will lay $5 million to win $3,125,000. Either way, Birdman will have to forfeit some G’s in accordance with the gaming laws in Panama City, Panama, where BetOnline.com operates.
Besides his verbal acceptance, he will also have to register online to use the site. With less than a week till the big game, Birdman needs to put his money where his blinged-out mouth is. -Adelle Platon
