Mattress Mack is no stranger to ridiculous wagers for sporting events and he always ties these wagers into a 'Gallery Furniture' store promotion.  He just dropped $4.53 million on the Cincinnati Bengals to win Super Bowl LVI. This is reported to be the largest online bet, ever. Since he lives in Texas, he had to drive across state lines into Louisiana to place the wager.  The current promotion offers to refund any mattress or reclining living room furniture purchase if the Bengals win the Super Bowl.

HOW MUCH WILL MACK WIN IF THE BENGALS WIN?

If Joe Burrow and the Bengals take down the Los Angeles Rams, Mcingvale will get a total of $7.7 million dollars. He will apply that money to the in-store promotion. If he loses, he is out the $4.5 million.  Mack told ESPN, "I had to make like twenty $200,000 bets to make it work."

MACK'S LAST BET:

The last bet that Mack dished out was during the 2021 World Series. He bet $3.25 million that Astros would beat the Braves, we all saw how that played out.  If the Astros won, Mattress Mack would have netted an astounding $35.6 million but instead he lost $3.25 million.  Also part of a furniture promotion.
