Mattress Mack to win over $5M with 49ers losing vs Cowboys in NFL playoffs

Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale is known for placing large bets on his favorite sports teams.

This time, the 71-year-old retail furniture store owner has wagered $2 million on the Dallas Cowboys to beat the San Francisco 49ers in the divisional round on Sunday. He placed the bet at Caesars Sportsbook at Horseshoe Lake Charles in Louisiana, using all cash.

If the Cowboys win, Mattress Mack would pocket $3,350,000, plus the $2 million he wagered, making it a grand total of over $5 million!

This isn’t the first time Mattress Mack has placed a large wager on a sports team. he bet $10 million on his hometown Houston Astros to win the World Series, netting him nearly $75 million. He also placed $5 million on Kansas to win the NCAA men’s basketball tournament and $9.5 million on the Cincinnati Bengals to win Super Bowl LVI, a bet he unfortunately lost.

Mattress Mack placed one of his most ridiculous bets of all time.

Mattress Mack’s bets are always part of a promotion for his furniture business, and this time he is promising full refunds to customers who purchase a $3,000 mattress, should Dallas beat San Francisco.

His promotional videos are always entertaining and this time it includes men riding bikes and exotic cars behind them.

The No. 5 seed Cowboys enter Santa Clara this weekend as the underdog against the No. 2 seed 49ers, but with Mattress Mack’s $2 million bet, things are looking up for the Cowboys. It will be exciting to see if Mattress Mack’s bet will pay off and if his customers will be getting their refunds. Regardless of the outcome, one thing is for sure, Mattress Mack sure knows how to make a bet and a promotion.
