It’s put up or shut up for the co-founder of Cash Money Records.
On Wednesday, Birdman tweeted that he intended to bet $5 million on the Patriots to beat the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI. The tweet, in all likelihood, was sent out knowing full well that nobody would have the stones — or the financial wherewithal — to take on such a large wager.
Then, two days later, offshore sportsbook BetOnline announced that it wanted the rapper’s action. All $5 million of it.
“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 Dave Mason, BetOnline brand manager, in a statement. ”Birdman simply needs to go to BetOnline and register online. Then, he can email me directly and I will provide him wire instructions in order to get his $5 million in post-up funds sent in a timely manner so we can proceed with the bet. Once Birdman’s bet is in, we will release a snapshot of the bet in his BetOnline.com account, and Birdman will finally have proof that he is the sports bettor who he boasts of being.”
It’s been two days, and Birdman has yet to issue a public response.

You’ve got to give BetOnline some credit for this one. These are pretty funny:
