Like many of us out there, Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather likes to bet on NFL games at a sportsbook. Nay, scratch that; Money loves him some good ol’ NFL gambling. According to an ESPN interview, that is. You see, Money puts his pants on one leg at a time like any of us. The difference is that once his pants are on, he spends hundreds of thousands of dollars – and sometimes even millions – on gambling.

With their defiant squashing of the Detroit Lions, the Seattle Seahawks have advanced to the divisional round of the playoffs for the fifth straight year.

With that win Pete Carroll advances to 6-0 in home playoff contests, thrusting the former collegiate coach into a conversation with the best coaches in NFL history. There’s no doubt that the Seahawks are damn near invulnerable at home. Unfortunately for Seattle, their next playoff game will be on the road.

In addition, the Steelers came into the season with the 4th best odds of winning this year’s Super Bowl. This upcoming weekend, Pittsburgh will be able to come one step closer to fulfilling another sportsbook prediction.
