Despite reports earlier in the night, Floyd Mayweather did not place a bet on Super Bowl XLVIII. 

Lucky for him. If he had bet $10.4 million on the Denver Broncos like NFL Access tweeted, he'd be out a lot of money right now.

Mayweather took the time to correct those claims. Not only did he deny placing a bet, but he also claimed that he would have bet on the Seattle Seahawks. His reasoning makes sense given his defensive fighting abilities and the Seahawks' tough defense.
