- Mattress Mack, a famous fan of the Houston Astros, has bet $3.9 million on the Astros winning the World Series
- He won a record $75 million last season when the Astros won the World Series
- His bet is also a shrewd business calculation related to a promotion at his furniture store
Houston Astros’ biggest fan, Jim McIngvale, also known as Mattress Mack, has placed a $2 million bet on the Astros to win the World Series. This comes after his record-breaking $75 million payout last season when the Astros took home the championship. McIngvale’s bet is not just a gamble, but a strategic business move as his company, Gallery Furniture, offers a promotion where customers who purchase a specific mattress set will get a full refund if the Astros win. With $3.9 million now riding on the Astors, McIngvale is hoping lightning strikes twice.
