For a guy who was sentenced last week to 90 days in jail on domestic violence charges, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has had a lot to smile about this month.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Mayweather placed a $1 million bet in Vegas that Tom Brady's Patriots would beat Tim Tebow's Denver Broncos.

The boxer, known for making (and tweeting) big-money bets, reportedly put the bet in with the M Resort. However, Mike Colbert, Cantor Gaming sports book director at the resort, wouldn't confirm or deny the rumblings, telling the Journal-Review that he wasn't allowed to comment on who bets. Colbert did, however, acknowledge that the boxer is "a valued customer who frequents the books quite often."

The Pats toppled Tebow's Broncos 41-23 on Dec. 18.

Mayweather is scheduled to report to jail on Jan. 6 for domestic violence charges.
