Dallas Cowboys fans aren’t happy that their favorite team is out of the playoffs so early, but perhaps none more so than famed gambler “Mattress Mack,” who lost $2 million after the San Francisco 49ers won Sunday.
Jim McIngvale is a local Texas mattress salesman who has become known as one of the biggest bettors in the country, most recently setting a record with a $10 million payout for multiple seven-figure bets on the Houston Astros to win the World Series.
Just a few weeks ago, he also bet big on TCU beating Georgia in the College Football Playoff National Championship game, and everyone saw how well it went.

While this loss wasn’t a blowout like the TCU matchup, Madras Mack still lost a nice lump sum of cash. Because of that, he had some advice to give quarterback Dak Prescott when he wore his jersey.
“Hey Dak, Mattress Mack here. I just lost $2 million, but I have a piece of advice for you: Get rid of that Sleep Number mattress and get a Tempur-Pedic. You’ll get much better results,” he said.

Prescott is an advocate for the Sleep Number mattress, and given his expertise in the field, Mattress Mack believes the franchise quarterback from “America’s Team” needs to change.
Even former Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens commented on Matress Mack’s advice to Prescott.
Prescott wasn’t at his best in the 19-12 loss, going 23 of 37 with two interceptions and a touchdown pass. The Cowboys’ offense also had two chances late in the game to at least tie it, but they went three-and-out on the first and ran out of clock to end it in the Bay Area.
The Cowboys had a promising 12-5 regular season record to earn the No. 5 seed in the NFC, and after a dominant performance in Tampa Bay to beat Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, many believed Prescott would lead the Cowboys over the 49ers. and get revenge for losing the NFC divisional round last season at AT&T Stadium.

Instead of throwing for five touchdowns and over 300 yards, the stingy San Fran defense made it difficult for Prescott to move the ball the way he and offensive coordinator Kellen Moore wanted. It ultimately led to another year in which the Cowboys, despite their regular season success, failed to make it to the NFC Championship for the first time since 1995.

For all those who placed bets on Dallas to break this streak, money was lost, but Madras Mack’s wallet was probably hurt the most.
