Joe McIngvale, better known as Mattress Mack, can earn up to $7 million if the Dallas Cowboys defeat the San Francisco 49ers

Jim McIngvale, known as Mattress Mack, became popular during the Major League Baseball World Series for winning the largest legal wager in history. The businessman took $75 million dollars after the victory of the Houston Astros against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Now Mattress Mack bet $2 million on the Dallas Cowboys facing the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL playoffs. With this bet the American can win almost $7 million dollars.

For every million wagered, the bettor wins $3,350,000, so Mack will receive about $6,700,000 for his bet on Dallas if he beats the 49ers. Mack already bet $200,000 before the Texan team reaches the Super Bowl, so his profit could increase considerably.
Mack is very famous in Texas and even in the sports venues where he threw out the ceremonial pitch in Game 6 of the 2022 World Series at Minute Maid Park for the Houston Astros.

McIngvale owns Furniture Gallery, one of the largest furniture stores in Texas, and he’s used to making these kinds of bets. The bet on the Houston Astros was made at the start of the season in April 2022 and won $75 million.

“I just get really bored with stability, which is why I guess I like all these big bets. I like chaos,” said McIngvale, who also dedicated part of his profits to his shoppers in his stores.

But McIngvale sees everything as an investment for the sale of his furniture and beds. The Texan businessman has also taken advantage of some super offers with the World Series. Any customer who purchases a $3,000 mattress will get a full refund if the Astros win the World Series.
