Mack is known for hedging his bets with Las Vegas sportsbook wagers when it comes to his furniture store promotions. Last year, Mack had to issue more than $10 million in rebates when he bet on the Astros. The original bet stated if the team won its first World Series, he would pay back mattress purchases surpassing $3,000 each.
This year, he is repeating that bet, and as of Monday, Houston is just seven wins away in the postseason from making it a win for customers.
