Norm Macdonald

$25,000 Bet on

Manny Pacquiao

5/4/2011 8:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Norm Macdonald is so confident Manny Pacquiao will DEFEAT Sugar Shane Mosley this weekend ... he went to Vegas and threw down a $25,000 bet on the Fighting Pride of the Philippines.

Macdonald made the bet at the sports book for the Wynn/ Encore hotels on April 29 -- and showed off the betting ticket on last night's "Sport's Show with Norm Macdonald." But Norm isn't getting the best odds.

Manny is such a HUGE favorite ... Norm's $25k bet will only pay off $3,125 if Pacquiao wins the fight.

But if Manny loses, Norm's out $25k.

Good bet??

This is Norm MacDonald's last gasp at his 15 minutes of fame. He is so completely not funny in any way. Good-bye Norm.

Solid bet by Norm. I think he's hilarious because he has a 3rd grade type humor. One thing I don't get about him though....why does his face always look eerie like he's a walking wax figure? lol

It is a great bet because the promoters and/or casino paid Norm to make the bet so that they could get cheap promotion for the fight. Also, Norm is funny as f*$k so all you haters can suck a bag of d#$@ks

Its a good bet for the person who reproduces the ticket and turns it in before Norm does. Why would he show the ticket with the bar code banding on television?

@MightyMad....
Where else can you make 12.5% return on your money in one night??? Odds are most definitely in his favor with this bet.
It's a good bet. Wish I had the cash to throw at one. Pacquiao
is going to end Shane's carrer Saturday night.

Bad bet! Betting that kind of money to win 3 grand. Doesn't seem like a wise bet to me.
