Mattress Mack felt so god about winning money on the Bengals during their last matchup, they he decided to keep it going in a huge way.
The Houston area furniture salesman has placed a new, $5 million bet on the Cincinnati Bengals to win Super Bowl LVI over the Los Angeles Rams. If you go ahead and combine that with the $4.5 million wager Mattress Mack had already placed on the Bengals last week, he’s now wagered $9.5 million on the Bengals to win.
For those that are not in the Houston area, you are probably not privy to Mack running a promotion to refund purchases of $3,000 or more at his mattress store if the Bengals win the Super Bowl. Mack is effectively hedging his bets, and he explained that he’s made so many sales through the promotion that he used the profits to make an even bigger wager.
“Well, I sold through the profit on the first investment,” Mack said. “So I had to make another.”
“I figure it’s more of a toss-up,” McIngvale said. “It could come down to a final field goal, like a lot of these exciting playoff games.”
The Cincinnati Bengals will look to finish off their Cinderella story, while the Los Angeles Rams try to finish the job in their second trip to the Super Bowl in the Sean McVay era.
