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??

Imagine if Pac man throws the fight...there would be whole lot of money out there for the taking...a 25k bet to win only 3k is not a good bet to me

It's a good bet because Manny is going to win convincingly tonight. Nrom is so confident he's will to stake so much for so little.

Well, Norm just won $3125. I guess sports betting is like this. If the Cleveland Cavaliers will play the Chicago Bulls right now even at 8-1 odds against you, it's still better to bet for Chicago. You'll have a very good chance of winning. Ya, the Cavaliers might get lucky or the Bulls suddenly start playing like a high school basketball team but the chance of that happening is very slim

don't hate the food...lumpias are quite tasty !!!

hate the filipino women !!! they are short, stubby-nosed, thick legged, and have no boobs. they think they are god's gift to men and they will only date white dudes. and most of the filipino women are butch lesbos !!!

plus filipino women are so status seeking, label-loving, gamble-holics !!! check it out yourself, go into any casino, you will see all slot machines with a filipino woman pouring her whole paycheck into it...

great marketing    

I think everyone's missing the point here going on about whether it's a bad bet, etc. It's a marketing move. It was done so there's more buzz about himself and about his sports show.
