The guy didnt stop on just betting World Series futures. He began betting the individual video games and the media would frequently pan their cameras to Mattress Mack during the game, revealing him cheering on the Astros. He was placing numerous thousands of dollars in bets on each game too. He ended up losing a total of $13 million on the World Series at the sportsbook.
He had actually assured so much money in deep discounts that year that he desired to hedge is wager in case the Astros ended up winning. He placed a large (seven figures) bet on the Astros to win the series. They lost and he lost his bet.
With his wagering beak damp, he moved on to football. In 2015 he bet $1M on the underdog San Francisco 49ers in last Super Bowl. He lost. That is OKAY since it was just another hedge obviously. Here is the discount he was running in Houston:
” Buy $3,000 or more of Gallery Furniture or Tempur-Pedic mattresses and if the team from San Francisco WINS, receive 50% of your cash back or 100% back in in-store credit!”
Bed mattress Mack is back! He has a brand-new offer at his furnishings store and he also positioned a big bet at the sportsbook. The current deal located at Gallery Furniture, Macks shop, looks like this:
His wager is the 2nd largest in Super Bowl history, second just a $4.8 M bet put on the Rams to beat the Patriots way back in 2002 at Super Bowl 36. Spoiler alert: That bet lost. And if you look at Macks track record, the Bucs bet might probably lose too. Due to the fact that the amount of promotion he is receiving plus the hedge implies that he will be fine, he doesnt care. And it is reported that Mattress Mack deserves over $300M, so theres that too. Have a good time Mack!
Mack flew to Colorado Springs last week to position his hedge bet. He bet $3.46 M on the Tampa Buccaneers +3.5 (-117 ). He put the wager with DraftKings, a fantasy football company turned sportsbook.
” TO PARTICIPATE, SPEND $3,000 OR MORE ON A NEW TEMPUR-PEDIC, SEALY, OR STEARNS & & FOSTER MATTRESS/BOX SPRING AND/OR ADJUSTABLE BASE FROM GALLERY FURNITURE, AND IF THE TEAM FROM TAMPA BAY WINS THE BIG GAME AGAINST KANSAS CITY ON FEBRUARY 7, 2021, YOUR NEW MATTRESS IS FREE FREE!”
And considering that it was composed in all caps you understand it must be a big deal.
He had promised so much money in deep discount rates that year that he wanted to hedge is bet in case the Astros ended up winning. He placed a large (7 figures) wager on the Astros to win the series. They lost and he lost his bet. He began wagering the private video games and the media would often pan their cameras to Mattress Mack throughout the game, revealing him cheering on the Astros. And if you look at Macks track record, the Bucs wager might most likely lose.
