“Mattress Mack” Still in the Game With Millions at Stake in World Series Bet
Jim McIngvale, also known as “Mattress Mack,” is breathing a sigh of relief this morning, after his hometown team, the Houston Astros, managed to pull off three straight wins this weekend against the Washington Nationals.
The Astros went into Friday night’s game 0-2, but went on to dominate the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park in Washington D.C., not only in game 3 on Friday, but the following games on Saturday and Sunday night, with the Astros pulling off a 7-1 win Sunday.
Both teams will rest today, but will meet back on the diamond tomorrow night at Houston’s Minute Maid Park. If the Astros win Tuesday, Mattress Mack will win more than $10 million he’s waged on his team with two bets totaling $4.5 million at D’Iberville’s Scarlet Pearl Casino Sportsbook, the Draftkings, and a bet he placed Friday in New Jersey for an additional $1.5 million on the Astros.
You can catch the next game tomorrow night on our WXXV FOX channel with the game starting at 7:07 pm.
