A Texas businessman has 3.46 million reasons to root for Tom Brady on Sunday.

Jim McIngvale, a furniture store owner known throughout Houston as ‘Mattress Mack’, says he bet a whopping $3.46 million on the Bucs to win the Super Bowl – flying to Colorado, where sports betting is legal, to place the bet.

Mattress Mack says the Bucs are “loaded with talent” and are “led by the greatest football player of all time in Tom Brady.”

He also points out that the NFL hasn’t seen a back-to-back Super Bowl winner in 16 years.

This guy is certainly not afraid to put his money where his mouth is!
