The ‘Mattress Mack Curse’ Is Very Real

Teams should be very worried whenever Mattress Mack bets on their success based on his history.  The furniture store owner has only won a single wager and handed sportsbooks tens of millions of dollars since 2019.  In the weeks leading up to Super Bowl LVI, Mattress Mack placed a $700,000 bet on the Titans to win it all. Then bet $2 million on the Patriots to win it all. Neither of those bets panned out.  Then Mattress Mack finished the NFL postseason with betting on the Bengals.  He lost $9.5 Million in Super Bowl Bets When Rams Defeated Bengals

As things currently stand, teams that have earned Mattress Mack’s support boast a record of 1-12 (with the Buccaneers being the lone exception), and he’s currently in the red to the tune of $40,040,000 since kicking off his betting escapades.
