Pro athletes up their odds for Mega Millions3/30/2012
Ticket holders have about a one in 176 million chance of winning that $540 million Mega Millions jackpot, according to Larry Brown Sports, but some pro athletes are still trying to up their chances of supplementing their already sizable bank accounts. Washington Wizards rookie forward Chris Singleton tweeted that he was planning to spend $10,000 on tickets and that he's "dedicated to making more money." Of course he's only making a little less than $1.5 million this year so who can blame him for wanting more? Meanwhile, Oakland Raiders safety Michael Huff tweets that he spent $2,400 on the lottery in the hopes of supplementing his $32 million contract. C'mon, dudes, leave some for the rest!
What would you do with $540 million?
