Mattress Mack could cash largest sports betting payout ever

Mattress Mack is at it again.

Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale—owner of Gallery Furniture, and a massive supporter of the Houston Astros—is known for placing hefty wagers on sporting games and events. And if his favorite baseball team wins the World Series, he’ll own a spot in the sports betting record books.

McIngvale told Bleacher Report’s Greg Ivory this week that he has invested $10 million in bets for the Astros to win the World Series, with the average payout being 7.5-to-1. If Houston pulls it off, the roughly $75 million payout would be the largest in sports betting history.

While McIngvale would receive a record-setting payout, Gallery Furniture customers would also be reaping the benefits.

The store has done promotions for years during which customers who spend a certain amount of money get their furniture for free in the event that a designated team wins their sport’s championship. That is once again the case with the 2022 MLB season.

McIngvale raised the stakes this time, offering the opportunity for customers to double their purchase (ie, someone who purchased $5,000 worth of furniture would receive $10,000 back) if the Astros win the World Series.

Below are the details of this year’s promotion, via the Gallery Furniture website.

“When you purchase a Tempur-Pedic, Stearns & Foster or Sealy mattress sleep set priced at $3,000 or more, and if the Houston Astros win it all in the 2022 final championship series, your purchase is FREE! Join us at any Gallery Furniture showroom TODAY make your qualifying mattress purchase for the chance to get it all FREE FREE FREE!”

McIngvale is no stranger to big bets: He won roughly $15 million thanks to Kansas winning the NCAA Tournament in April, which snapped a losing streak that involved losing multi-million dollar bets on the Super Bowl and college football national championship.
