Texas furniture salesman Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale has placed a record-setting bet of more than $4.5 million on a Super Bowl LVI win for the Cincinnati Bengals over the Los Angeles Rams…

To make the bet legally, McIngvale drove from Texas to Louisiana, which officially launched legal mobile sports betting on Jan. 28.
