Last week, Jim McIngvale 'Mattress Mack' placed a bet of $3.46 million on the underdog Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  All Tampa Bay had to do was not lose by three points. Apparently, that was no problem for Brady and company.  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Cheifs 31-9.  The bet was placed via Draft Kings. McIngvale will take home $2.72 million. As he has done in the past, he uses these huge bets as a marketing tool as well.  So what does this mean for his customers?

As reported by ABC13 in Houston, McIngvale’s Gallery Furniture stores offered customers a chance to win free furniture if the Bucs won. If customers spent $3,000 or more on a Tempur-Pedic, Sealy, or Stearns & Foster mattress/box spring and/or adjustable base, they get their money back since Tampa Bay won.

 


Mack also bet about $13 million back in 2019 when the Astros went to the World Series, also an in-store promotion. The Nationals beat the Astros in seven games.
