Mavs Owner Cuban Jokes About Winning $20 Million On Super Bowl Bet

(CBS) Mavericks owner Mark Cuban created a buzz last night with a crazy tweet claiming he placed a bet that a safety would be recorded on the first play from scrimmage in the Super Bowl, as it did happen for Seattle in its 43-8 romp of Denver. Cuban joked he won $20 million, though that wasn’t immediately clear.


Cuban later tweeted “Psych” with a smiley face. Multiple outlets reported the odds would be around 50-to-1 rather than the million-to-1 Cuban joked about.
