Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather has placed a $10.4 million bet on the Denver Broncos to beat the Seattle Seahawks by more than two points in the upcoming Super Bowl.
Twitter post suggesting that Mayweather had used seven different agencies (no one agency would take it).
Mayweather has made large bets in the past.
He apparently bet $220,000 to win just $200,000 back on college football team Texas A&M leading by more than 17 points at half-time against Southern Methodist.
Vegas Gambling Steam, which bills itself as “Industries #1 #Handicapping #Gambling #Watchdog #Updating #Steamed & Public Betting Percentages from top books in #Vegas” — gave some background of Floyd’s betting process.
“Floyd Mayweather is worth over 80 Million liquid. Sportsbooks / Offshore books executives gladly float this man 2-3 million in credit.”
“They have a phone number, they call up owners of the sportsbooks they want action at. ‘Put me down for 2 million on Broncos.. It’s Floyd’”
“He has runners to make those baby bets for him. He doesn’t post all his bets especially the big ones #IRS”
Floyd Mayweather is expected to fight Amir Khan in Las Vegas in May 2014.
