It needs to be said: celebrities are people just like you. They talk, they eat, they make mistakes, and, much like people using the, they bet. Here are five celebrities that love betting on sports.

Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen has been a very controversial celebrity for a while. In 2011, he was diagnosed with HIV, but he kept the secret for a very long time. As a way of coping, he turned to all kinds of risky behavior, including alcohol, drugs, promiscuous relationships, and betting on sports. It is worth noting that he was interested in sports long before his difficult period, as his former partner, Denise Richards, revealed that Charlie had a habit of spending as much as $200,000 a week betting on sports. His controversial behavior was addressed in his work – in Spin City, for example, he plays a recovering betting addict.

Michael Jordan

The former legendary basketball player enjoys placing money on his predictions of match outcomes. He also dabbled in other forms of gambling, as he was seen in 1993 playing baccarat. Not a big deal? Well, you might reconsider when you find out that the NBA doesn’t allow its players to bet or play games of chance. There were a few rumors about how it was Jordan’s love for betting on sports like golf that allegedly led him to his first retirement.

Ashton Kutcher

Michael Kelso may have been less than intelligent on That 70s Show, but Kutcher has shown his cunning in terms of betting on sports. Reportedly, he made $750,000 while in college. Though, he was a part of a betting syndicate then, so it was relatively easy for him to come out smelling like roses. In 2018, he invested in Unikrn, an esports betting platform. This just goes to show that the “silly” actor knows how to make money from the world of betting.

Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Here is another athlete that you might not expect to be a betting enthusiast. However, his passion for taking chances has been observed time and time again. This was especially the case in 2017, where his bets were the talk of the boxing world. He even tried to bet on himself before his fight with Conor McGregor and was frustrated that he couldn’t place the desired $400,000 bet.

Ray Romano

Most recognize the actor from his TV show Everybody Loves Raymond. However, in 2009, Romano had a different, though still comedic, role in Men of a Certain Age. In it, his character was battling gambling addiction. What you may not know is that the problem and the story surrounding it were based on Romano’s personal experience. He doesn’t shy away from betting on sports or playing in poker tournaments.
