Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy appears to be playing it safe with his money.

McCoy bet $200,000 on the Golden State Warriors to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. The bet was the largest placed on the NBA Finals at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, and he could pocket $62,500 if the Warriors dethrone LeBron James and the Cavaliers. If he would've bet on the Cavaliers and they won, he could've made about $400,000.

NFL players are allowed to bet on other team sports, according to the league's gambling policy.
