Floyd Mayweather claims he won nearly $2million betting on the NFL

We never get to see the boxers losing bet slips.

ANY TIME FLOYD MAYWEATHER posts a betting slip to Instagram you’d be forgiven for raising an eyebrow or two.

However, there’s no denying the boxer knows how to grab attention and last night he posted two separate betting slips claiming he’d won over $1.8million gambling on American football.

First Mayweather posted this slip which shows he put nearly three quarters of a million dollars on Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts with the words:

“Before I went on a 2-week vacation, I bet $720,000.00 and I walked away with $1,405,714.28. When you’re betting on Andrew, it’s never Luck.”

He followed it up with a ‘smaller’ bet of $220,000 on the Seattle Seahawks to beat Washington in last night’s big game.

“I bet $220,000.00 on the World Champion Seattle Seahawks (Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch and Richard Sherman) and walked away with $420,000.00″

It’s interesting that we rarely, if ever, get to see the boxer’s losing betting slips though.
