The Texas man who placed a multi-million dollar bet on the 2019 world series is back at it, placing another huge bet on this year's Super Bowl game.

Jim McIngvale, or as he's famously known "Mattress Mack", placed a $3.46 million bet on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Sunday's Super Bowl.

According to DraftKings, the Houston businessman flew to Colorado where he placed the bet on the company's mobile app from the Colorado Springs airport.

Currently a win for McIngvale would almost double his bet with a whopping payout of more than $6 million.

McIngvale is known for his sports betting but the 2019 bet on the Astros ended up costing him more than $13 million.

His $3.5 million 2019 world series bet at Mississippi's Scarlet Pearl Casino was the largest wager in the state's sportsbook history.
