By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.com — Call him the 7 Million Dollar Man.
Mattress Mack won big last year on the Super Bowl. For Super Bowl LVI, the famed big-money gambler is going even bigger.
Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale — a Houston area furniture salesman known for placing large sports bets — has wagered bets totaling $4,534,000 on the Bengals money line over the Rams at +170 odds. If Joe Burrow and the Bengals pull off the upset, McIngvale would win $7,707,800
The $4.5 million bet represents the largest mobile sports wager of all time and the second-largest Super Bowl wager ever placed, trailing a $4.9 million bet made in 2002. McIngvale drove from Texas into Louisiana and placed the bet on his phone while pulled over at a gas station. It was placed with Caesar’s Sportsbook.
