Mattress Mack certainly believes in the Houston Astros.

Jim McIngvale, who owns Gallery Furniture stores in Houston, bet $2 million in mobile bets on the Astros to win the World Series in Iowa and another $2 million on the same thing in Las Vegas.

Darren Rovell of Action Network noted McIngvale has now bet at least $10 million on the Astros to win the Fall Classic this year. He previously made a $2 million bet in a Louisiana casino, $3 million bet at Caesars and $1 million bet at WynnBet.

He's not the only one who will be rooting for Houston to win the title. He promised customers a promotion that will reward them with double their money back on purchases of more than $3,000 if the team accomplishes the feat.

Fortunately for McIngvale, he likely won't have to sweat the Astros making the playoffs.

They are 62-32 and 11 games ahead of the Seattle Mariners in the American League West standings. Their more pressing race is the one with the 65-30 New York Yankees for home-field advantage in the AL playoffs.

Mattress Mack bets significant amounts of money on the Astros to win it all every year, and 2022 is no different.
