TAMPA (WFLA) – Mattress Mack is putting plenty of springs in Super Bowl LV.

The Houston furniture store owner named Jim McIngvale placed a $3.46 million bet on Super Bowl LV on the underdog Tampa Bay Buccaneers at +3.5.

If McIngvale would win $2.72 million if Tampa Bay covers the spread.

The two largest reported bets on the Super Bowl so far have both been on the Bucs. In addition to McIngvale’s $3.46 million wager, a bettor with BetMGM in Nevada placed a $2.3 million wager on Tampa Bay last week.
