Floyd Mayweather, Jr. Bet $1 Million That Tim Tebow Would Lose to the New England Patriots

Throughout 2011, Floyd Mayweather, Jr. hasn't been afraid to put his money where his mouth is. He's repeatedly laid down large—sometimes very large—amounts of cash on different sporting events. But he reportedly topped all of his other bets this year a couple of weeks ago when he put up $1 million at the M Resort in Las Vegas on Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos losing to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. The sports book director at the M Resort refused to confirm or deny the bet when the Las Vegas Review-Journal attempted to confirm the story earlier this week. But he did say that Mayweather is "a valued customer who frequents the book quite often."

So, yeah. It sounds like your man won some money. Too bad he's got that pesky 90-day jail sentence preventing him from doing much with his winnings. For now, at least.
