    It looks like the Wizards weren't the only ones who came out of Tuesday's game as winners.

    Check out the bet that boxer Floyd Mayweather tweeted out a picture of last night.  He put his faith -- and $25,000 -- in the Wizards at halftime, betting that they'd maintain their lead over Portland.

    The bet was placed at M Resort in Las Vegas, and the Wizards' 124-109 win meant Mayweather walked away with a cool $20,833.35. It's pocket change for the big-spending brawler, but it's not often that someone has this much confidence in the Wizards.

    It was also the first time in franchise history that the Wizards have won back-to-back games on the road by more than 15 points.

    The Wizards play the Clippers tonight, and online betting site Bovada currently has the Wizards at +13. Maybe Floyd will let it ride.
