The Mattress Mack has placed a couple of large bets on the Astros to win the World Series. Jim "Mattress Mack" McIngvale is back with another massive bet.

Earlier this month, McIngvale, who owns Gallery Furniture, put $4 million worth of bets on the Houston Astros to win the World Series.

There were two bets placed by "Mattress Mack":

1. $3 million on Astros to win the World Series at 10/1 at Caesars Sportsbook (app)

2. $1 million on Astros to win the World Series at 12/1 at Wynnbet (app)

In total, these two bets would make "Mattress Mack" a total of $42 million if the Astros win the World Series.

This would represent the largest bet ever to be won in the legal US sportsbook market - if the Astros win, of course.


As per usual, McIngvale is tying this bet to a promotion at his Gallery Furniture store.

McIngvale is promising customers of Gallery Furniture that if they spend at least $5,000 at his store and the Astros win the World Series, they will get $10,000 back in cash.


"Mattress Mack" is coming off of a massive win in the NCAA tournament, as he backed Kansas to win it all and won over $12 million as a result.


The Houston Astros have been on a torrid run as of late and are now sitting at the top of the AL West, with a slight winning percentage edge over the LA Angels.

The Astros will face stiff competition in the American League this season, as the Yankees are arguably the best team in baseball.

If they pass that test, a team such as the Dodgers, Padres or New York Mets will be waiting for them in the World Series.

Most sportsbooks still have the Astros at about 12/1 to win the World Series as of this moment.
