Houston is no stranger to Mattress Mack and his gambling ways, especially on Houston or Texas teams. He is at it again this postseason. A few weeks ago it was announced that he could win 75 million dollars if the Houston Astros win the World Series. Now he is one series away.

Mattress Mack Bet How Much?

Mattress Mack bet 10 million dollars on the Astros before the postseason began that they would pull off the feat of winning a championship this season.

He owns local furniture store in Houston, Gallery Furniture, which is the go-to furniture store in the city. He has a strong history of taking care of the community in more ways than great deals.

When Hurricane Harvey left the city without power for a number of days, he opened his doors to any and everybody to come sleep and enjoy air conditioning and water.

As much as this bet is for him, he made a deal with the city. Anybody that spends over 3,000 dollars in his store between when he placed the bet and the World Series, if the Astros win, those customers will not have to pay a dime.

A Man of the People, a Gambling Man.

Two things that describe Mattress Mack perfectly. He is a staple in the city of Houston as well as a staple in the sports betting world.

He is in works with Caesars Sports Book and Sealy Mattress to give free mattresses to first responders with part of the 10 million he bet.

This is not the first time he has made outrageous bets on local teams to succeed, and I am sure it will not be the last. This World Series the city of Houston will not only be rooting for the Astros, they will be rooting for him!
