ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Here’s one Houston Astros fan who’s putting his considerable money where his mouth is.

Jim McIngvale, a 68-year-old mattress store owner from Houston who calls himself “Mattress Mack,” plans to put down at least $1.5 million on the Astros in New Jersey today.

The bets could offset potential liability his store might have from a promotion that refunds mattress customers their money if the Astros win the World Series.
