Here's why their outrageous bets are a blow to yours. Mack bets against the Kansas City Chiefs One of the most historic games in the NFL and of course Mattress Mack dropped a big bag on it. The Kansas City Chefs and the Houston Texans had a game that determined who would go to the AFC championship and Mack only knew that the Chiefs would lose and bet on the Houston Texans. The Texans made Mack feel pretty good after jumping to a 24-0 lead.
Even with the 24-0 lead, the Chefs found a way to keep scoring and come back and win the match. Even after this game, Mack still didn't believe in the Chiefs and returned to bet against them the following weekend when he was playing against the Tennessee Titans. The Chiefs end up winning that match and Mack also lost another big bet. Mattress Mack Astros World Series Promotion Mattress Mack pays nuns to attend ALCS.
Undeterred, Mack returns to the Derby and bets again on the horse that ends up as favorite on Saturday.

To legally place the bet, Mcingvale had to leave his home state of Texas for Louisiana, which just launched mobile sports betting in January. The current promotion is offering to refund any purchase of mattresses or reclining living room furniture if the Bengals win the Super Bowl.

Mcingvale's gambling may have had the same luck as millions of other bets, turning into nothing more than pieces of paper torn at the bottom of a trash can as he left a bookmaker, but his sweat was unique and Mack hopes that the nationwide advertising he attracted will pay off in new business in his furniture stores.
