Mattress Mack Goes All-In: $1 Million Bet on Houston Men’s Basketball for March Madness Glory

215

Entrepreneur Jim Mattress Mack McIngvale is making headlines again, betting $1 million on his hometown team, the Houston Cougars, to win the men’s NCAA tournament.

Caesars Sportsbook confirmed McIngvale’s mammoth wager, with the Cougars carrying odds of +750, potentially netting him a whopping $7.5 million if they emerge victorious.

Despite being the third favorite at BetMGM, trailing behind defending champions UConn and Purdue, the Cougars’ strong performance this season has garnered widespread attention. 

Currently seated at the top spot in the AP Top 25 rankings and leading the charge in their debut season in the Big 12 conference, Houston’s dominance on the court has solidified their status as a formidable contender in college basketball.

McIngvale’s penchant for betting on local teams is well-documented, with previous high-stakes wagers on the Houston Astros and the Cincinnati Bengals in recent years. 

While his wagers on the Astros to win the World Series and the Bengals to clinch Super Bowl LVI ultimately fell short, McIngvale’s unwavering support for his city’s sports teams underscores his commitment to both his community and his business endeavors.

In 2021, McIngvale’s mattress stores ran a promotion offering refunds to customers if the Astros secured a World Series victory, a gamble that didn’t pay off as the Atlanta Braves claimed the title. 

Undeterred by setbacks, McIngvale doubled down on his betting prowess for the Super Bowl, placing a record-breaking $5 million bet on the Bengals, an audacious move that unfortunately ended in defeat as the Los Angeles Rams emerged victorious.

Despite past losses, McIngvale remains undaunted, once again placing his faith and a considerable sum of money on the Houston Cougars to bring home collegiate basketball’s most coveted prize. 

As the exciting spectacle of March Madness continues to play out, the attention of sports fans everywhere will be focused on none other than McIngvale, who has consistently demonstrated steadfast dedication to his cherished hometown team.

Mattress Mack’s unwavering devotion to Houston sports will always be evident, regardless of whether his latest wager turns out to be a profitable venture or just another expensive miscalculation.
