Cash Money Records' Birdman is looking to cash-in on next month's Super Bowl match-up between the New England Patriots and New York Giants by revealing a $5 million bet.
Daring any and all challengers, Birdman said he is placing his chips on the slightly favored New England Patriots.

G-Unit's 50 Cent hinted at banking $500,000 betting on the Giants defeating the San Francisco 49ers in their NFC championship match Sunday night.
"I love the NEW YORK see this is life baby LMAO Man all U had to do was listen I told you were gonna win http://lockerz.com/s/176987740," he tweeted January 22nd.

"Street king baby I'm a king I do this. I'm giving this money to my nana she gonna faint LMAO all she do is go to the church :o)" (50 Cent's Twitter)
Last year, Cash Money's Birdman placed a million dollar bet on the Super Bowl.
Bryan Williams tells Dallas radio that he's got a "mill ticket" riding on Lil Wayne's preferred contender in tonight's Super Bowl XLV. Last week, Birdman appeared at Dallas, Texas' K104 FM station with DJ Khaled, and hinted that he's got a million dollars riding on tonight's Super Bowl XLV contest. "If you listen to us, you'll feel us," said the former Big Tymers rapper. Continuously repeating the term "mill ticket," the executive-turned-rapper boasted that he and his associates live a life of grandeur. "A mill ticket, man, figure it out." (Hip Hop DX)
Despite winning the million dollar Super Bowl bet, Birdman lost two million taking a gamble at last June's NBA Finals.
When you bet big, there's a possibility that you'll lose big, which is a lesson that Birdman learned last night (June 12).The Cash Money millionaire lost $2 million on the NBA Championship game for betting that the Miami Heat would be the victors over the Dallas Mavericks. For the first time in franchise history, the Dallas Mavericks won the NBA Championship beating the Heat 105-95 in Game Six. The victory wasn't just good for the team, television ratings also reached the highest for a Game Six in 11 years. (The Boom Box)
