The largest bet placed on Super Bowl 56 was $4,534,000 on the Cincinnati Bengals to win. This bet was placed by none other than Mattress Mack, who got +170 odds on the Bengals moneyline at Caesars Sportsbook. If Cincinnati pulls off the upset, Mack will win $7,707,800 and return $12,241,800.

 

But Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale apparently wasn’t done yet. On Friday morning, he doubled down on the Bengals moneyline, adding another $5,000,000 bet at Caesars Sportsbook Louisiana. He now has a total of $9,534,000 on the Bengals to win. After this bet, his total profit would be $16,207,800! (He would return $25,741,800.)

Mack had the only wager of at least six figures on the Bengals to win up until Thursday night, when one bettor placed a $1,000,000 parlay at DraftKings Sportsbook. The parlay combines the Bengals moneyline (+170) and the game total to go under 48.5.

There are two other notable single wagers on Cincinnati, but they are both bets on the Bengals to cover.

There are 18 wagers of at least six figures on the Rams right now, 11 being on them to win and the rest on them to cover the full game line or 1Q/1H lines. Last year we had 12 reported wagers of at least six figures, three of which were seven figures.

 

The three notable bets above that were placed at non-US books are all from rapper Drake, who placed the bets up in Canada. If you want to see which side the public money is being bet on for Super Bowl 56, check out our NFL public betting trends.

The two bettors who got the Bengals at +4.5 must be feeling good as they’re watching the spread move down to four at many sportsbooks. The Rams moneyline bettor who got them at -180 is also sitting on a nice line, as LA has become as big as -200 favorites in the odds to win the Super Bowl.

Although, based off historic ATS Super Bowl trends, this bettor should have just laid the points with the Rams. The team that wins the Super Bowl is 47-6-2 against the spread. We have not seen a team win the Super Bowl without covering the spread since 2009—Super Bowl 43.

The bettor who placed their $240,000 on the Rams to win at -200 odds can’t enjoy watching some sportsbooks moving LA’s moneyline to as long as -175. It’s already a lot to risk for the return they’re getting, so I hope for their sake we don’t see the line continue trending that way.

Mattress Mack’s Super Bowl 56 Bet Is Largest Mobile Wager in Sports Betting History

Though I’m confident he’s not the only one who has made the drive from Texas to Louisiana to place a bet since the state launched online sports betting on January 28, it’s unlikely anyone else is betting the same amount of money when they get into Louisiana as Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale did.

Mattress Mack’s $4.5 million wager on the Bengals to win was the largest mobile wager in sports betting history, according to Caesars Sportsbook, who took his bet in Louisiana. It was also the second-largest bet ever on the Super Bowl.

This was all true until he broke his own record, laying another $5 million down on the Bengals Friday morning.

Mattress Mack has become known for his major wagers over the last few years. He hasn’t really been known for winning them, though. Here’s a quick look at some of his previous big bets:

  • $1 Million on the University of Houston to win the 2021 NCAA Men’s Tournament (Lost)
  • $3.46 Million on the Buccaneers to cover in Super Bowl 55 (Won)
  • $13 Million on the Astros to win the 2019 World Series (Lost)
