+ Buffett’s Super Bowl bet: Broncos
Will the Denver Broncos or Seattle Seahawks win Super Bowl XLVII Sunday?
If you’re making a bet, the smart money’s on the Broncos. That’s because Mote Marine Aquarium resident manatee Buffett placed his bet by swimming to a target with the Broncos’ logo Friday. Buffett has picked the winner correctly for six consecutive years.
His half-brother, Hugh, disagreed and swam to the Seahawks’ target. Although he doesn’t have a perfect scorecard, his record is still pretty good: Hugh has picked the correct Super Bowl team the last four out of six years.
