Mattress Mack Puts $2M on Astros to Win World Series

Mattress Mack has yet another massive future on the Astros to win the World Series.
This time, it's for $2 million at +600, meaning the wager would net Jim McIngvale $12 million if the Astros win another World Series.
Famously, the mattress magnate won $75 million when the Astros beat the Phillies in the 2022 World Series. Mack had put in intermittent wagers throughout the season to get to that amount.
Typically, the wagers are done in conjunction with a promo at his mattress store. If the Astros win, for instance, customers would get their purchases refunded up to a certain dollar amount.
Mack's promotion for the 2022 World Series afforded customers a refund of their entire purchase of $3,000 or more if the Astros won. Buyers were also able to keep whatever items they bought.
For this particular $2 million wager, Mattress Mack was coy as to whether it was tethered to any store promo.
"I'm just revealing that bet," Mack told the Action Network's Darren Rovell. "I'm being a little bit more discreet about my business now."
Since the New Year, Mack has lost at least $6 million through his own personal wagers.
He lost $3 million betting on TCU vs. Georgia in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game, $2 million on the Cowboys to beat the 49ers in the NFC Divisional Round and $1.2 million on the Kentucky Derby.
This future on the Astros is the first large wager since his seven-figure loss at the Kentucky Derby.
