The New York Giants' win over the San Francisco 49ers may have been thrilling for fans across the U.S., but for one fan, in particular, the game was particularly rich. Rapper 50 Cent claims to have won $500,000 in a bet after the Giants beat the 49ers after kicking a 31-yeard field goal in overtime during Sunday's game.
