Birdman chickens out Super Bowl Bet

Over a week has passed since hip-hop mogul Birdman tweeted to over 675,000 of his loyal followers that he planned on betting $5 Million on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. Approximately 48 hours after the infamous tweet, BetOnline.com reached out to Birdman; prepared to accept the potentially record-setting wager.   (Find hundreds of 2012 Super Bowl betting props here)

Once BetOnline.com stepped-up to the challenge, Birdman flew the coop; prompting the fastest growing sportsbook in the US to open up odds on whether or not the bet will even be placed. Yesterday BetOnline.com was forced to close all of their Birdman props due to his inactivity, in addition to one-sided action.

Laquell Jones, once a Birdman fan, had this to say regarding his favorite rapper backing out:  “Birdman disappointed me. ah thought he had loads o' money an' would take dis here bet. Now ah know he iz all nuttin' but uh talker with muh beeotch.”

“Even though the Birdman props were still getting tons of action, we had no other choice but to close them,” stated Dave Mason from BetOnline.com. “For one, his fans were all betting against him making the bet; they had lost all faith in him. Also, since an international wire can take up to three business days, even if Birdman decided that he was going to indeed place to place the bet, the money might not have been in his account by kick-off.”

There is little doubt that Birdman let-down his fans by failing to follow through with his boast, but Mr. Mason explained that BetOnline.com will be happy to accept Birdman’s action in the future:

“I’m certain Birdman will be tweeting in the near future about a seven-figure NBA or March Madness bet. If he is serious and is looking to place the wager in a licensed and regulated environment, we at BetOnline.com will be waiting for him with open arms.”

And the offer isn’t just for Birdman.

“Larger bettors have always known that BetOnline.com is one of the few sportsbooks willing and able to take and pay seven-figure wagers. This should serve as an invitation to the uber high-end of the market, that BetOnline.com stands ready to take multi-million dollar bets,” Mason concluded.

Birdman former fan Jones added:  “Yo Here iz hoping da Giants win an' Birdman loses all his motha fuckin money on Super Bowl Sunday ya'll is mad stupid.”

You laid a big fat egg this time around Birdman.
