Warren Buffett wins sports bet

While at the MGM Grand for the Floyd Mayweather fight, the billionaire investor decided to bet on a sports book for the first time ever.

Buffett laid down his first-ever wager at a Las Vegas sports book with a bet of $550 at the MGM Grand on his alma mater, the Nebraska Cornhuskers. 

Buffett saw the line that had Nebraska favored over Fresno State by just 12½ points. So he put $550 on Nebraska.

The win left Warren Buffett richer by $500.
