Mattress Mack Drops Another $4 Million in Bets for the Houston Astros

Mattress Mack 10M Houston Astros

  • Mattress Mack placed a total of $4 million in bets for the Houston Astros to win the World Series at +500 odds over the weekend.
  • Mack now stands to win a massive $72.66 million from a total of $10 million worth of bets made on the Astros since May.
  • The Astros are 62-32 and 11 games ahead of the Seattle Mariners in the AL West. They are also second behind the 63-50 Yankees for the best record in the American League.

Mattress Mack has bet significant money on the Houston Astros to win the World Series every year. 2022 is no different. But not only is Mack betting big again this year, but he is also upping the ante on his furniture promotions where the proceeds of his bets are supposed to go to.

Normally, Mack’s promo is to give customers their money back if they spend $3,000 on a Tempur-Pedic, Stearns & Foster, and Sealy mattress sleep or power motion furniture at his furniture shops. This time around, Mack won’t be just giving his customers their money back but is doubling it. That means that a customer who spends $3,000 on mattresses at Mack’s shops will get $6,000 if the Astros win the 2022 World Series.

Mack says the new gimmick has been a hit that he has had to make more bets to hedge the promotion.

Mack Adds More Bets

Mack flew to Iowa to make a couple of $1 million bets on the Astros at +500 odds. The wagers were made via the Unibet and Betfred mobile apps. The 73-year-old Mack then traveled to Las Vegas to make a $2 million bet on his hometown MLB team via BetMGM, also at +500 odds. Bleacher Report did not say when the bets were made but the TikTok post was dated Saturday, July 23rd.

Last Monday, Mack also made a $2 million bet on the Astros to win the World Series at +533 odds. The bet was made at the Barstool Sportsbook at L’Auberge Casino in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and is worth $10.66 million if Houston wins it all this season.

One week after losing $1.5 million at the Kentucky Derby last May, Mack also placed a $3 million bet on the Astros via Caesars Sportsbook. The bet was made at +1000 odds and would cash $30,000,000. According to Caesars, the win would be the largest ever in the history of legal sports betting:

That same month, the Houston businessman also made a $1 million wager via WynnBET at +1200 odds or potential winnings of $12 million. Including bet bets he made last week, McIngvale now has wagered a total of $10 million on the Astros to win the World Series and stands to win a massive $72.66 million if Houston wins the 2022 World Series.

The Mack Effect

Following Mattress Mack’s massive bet, the Barstool Sportsbook dropped the Astros from +533 to +500, with only the New York Yankees at +340 and the Los Angeles Dodgers at +350 having shorter odds than them. The defending World Series champions Atlanta Braves and New York Mets are the only other teams at that sportsbook with odds less than +1000 at +700 and +800, respectively.

Houston’s odds also shortened after Mack made his wager at WynnBET. The said sportsbook moved the Astros from fifth on the odds boards at +1200 to +800. At the latest WynnBET World Series odds board, the Astros have the third shortest odds at +500 with only the Yankees at +375 and the Dodgers at +450 having better odds. The Mets at +700 are the only other team at that sportsbook with odds shorter than +1000.

According to WynnBET, the Astros have 96.7% of the total betting handle for the 2022 World Series betting market despite having only 7.5% of the total betting tickets, the 4th most among teams. No other team has a betting handle of more than 0.5% and the Astros are the biggest liability at that sportsbook.
