You can't bet on sports in Texas, and Colorado is a lot closer than Vegas... So one man made the journey from the south to make a HUGE bet on Sunday's huge game.
Beloved Houston furniture store owner Jim McIngvale, known to many as Mattress Mack, has a lot riding on Super Bowl LV – $3.46 million, to be exact. He flew to Colorado –which recently legalized sports betting — to make the bet.
The Texas businessman put it all on Tampa Bay, he said in a press release, in part because of the rarity of back-to-back Super Bowl wins in the NFL.
I now know of a least one person outside of Tampa who's a Tom Brady fan!
