Big Rams bettor in Vegas

BetMGM in Las Vegas took some significant bets on the Rams on the weekend with one bettor believing L.A. will get off to a fast start. The bettor placed three separate $1 million bets on Rams first-half plays:

  • Rams -0.5 in the first quarter (+105)
  • Rams -2.5 in the first half (-120)
  • Rams team total Over 13.5 in the first half (-115)

If all three bets win, the bettor will walk away with $2,752,899.

Return of the Mack

Feb. 11

Jim McIngvale, a.k.a. “Mattress Mack,” doubled down and put another $5 million on the Bengals moneyline, Caesars Sportsbook reported on Friday.

Feb. 3

This one's going to be hard to top. 

Jim McIngvale, a.k.a. “Mattress Mack,” placed on February 3 what Caesars Sportsbook called "the single-largest legal mobile sports wager of all-time."

McIngvale is a Houston furniture store owner who is known for his massive bets made in conjunction with promotional giveaways. His Super Bowl bet this year was actually several bets, made via the Caesars Sportsbook app in Louisiana, which added up to a $4,534,000 wager on the Bengals to beat the Rams straight up. 

Caesars said the $4.5-million play is the second-biggest legal Super Bowl wager in history. The only larger punt was a $4.9-million bet made during the 2002 Super Bowl at pricey odds of -900, the operator said. 

Million-dollar parlay

DraftKings Sportsbook's Casino Queen in East St. Louis Illinois reported a $1 million same-game parlay for on the Under and the Bengals moneyline. It would payout at $4.15 million.

Paying a Rams-related premium 

There have been at least three six-figure bets placed on the Rams to win outright — and at a steep cost.

Caesars Sportsbook has reported both a $400,000 and a $180,000 moneyline wager on L.A., at odds of -200 and -180, respectively. The larger of those bets was actually made in person, at the Horseshoe Bossier City casino in Louisiana.

A bettor at another sportsbook also had no issue with paying a premium for a Rams win. A $240,000 moneyline wager on L.A. was reported by PointsBet on February 5 at odds of -200, which would win $120,000.

To live and die with L.A.

Caesars Sportsbook was quick to report a few major plays. The bookmaker's Super Bowl odds opened at Rams -3.5, but the line moved quickly to -4 and then to -4.5 as some big bets were laid on Los Angeles.

One of those wagers was a $522,500 punt on the Rams as four-point favorites at -110 odds, which would win the bettor $475,000. However, at least one six-figure bet has since been placed on the Bengals +4.5.

“The Rams may be more comfortable with their surroundings, but I don’t think [homefield] means that much at all to the spread,” said Adam Pullen, assistant director of trading at Caesars Sportsbook, in a press release. “Other people might disagree and think it’s worth a little, maybe that’s the reason why the spread has gone up. It was 50/50 for Rams and 49ers fans [on January 30], and Super Bowl is corporate. It’s not like it’s your average fan that’ll be in a lot of the seats.”
