What is Mattress Mack’s Betting Record?

How Many Games Has Mattress Mack Won?

(Updated January 31, 2024)

Imagine making it all the way until your late 60’s before you became a gambling junkie. That’s exactly what “Mattress Mack” did.

Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale is a furniture store owner in the Houston, Texas area. Mack first rose to national fame when he offered huge rebates and refunds to customers if the home town team won the World Series back in 2017. The Astros won it all that year and Mack had to pay out $10M in refunds. The silver lining was that he had placed some pretty sizable wagers on the Astros along the way and hedged his bet. Everybody wins right? Wrong.

In the almost five years since that World Series, Mack has made headlines for more promotions like the one which made him famous. But he has also made headlines for placing very large wagers on games which had nothing to do with Houston. For example, he placed a whopping $3.46M wager on the Bucs on last year’s Super Bowl. That one worked out in his favor. But heading into that game, he admittedly was already down over $13M betting on various games, including each and every game of 2019 World Series. If you recall, Houston lost that series to Washington despite having home field advantage.

2022 MLB Baseball World Series (1-0)

Mattress Mack’s largest windfall to date was this year’s World Series. He placed a series of bets throughout the year on his hometown Astros to win it all. Wouldn’t you know it, they did just that. The payout was in the neighborhood of $75M. His furniture store customers are very happy as this all ties into furniture rebates and giveaways.

Even though Mack placed multiple futures bets on the Astros to win it all they count as one bet (one pick).
