APUESTA 3.5 MDD A QUE ASTROS GANA LA SERIE MUNDIAL

Un vendedor de muebles de Houston, que intenta mitigar millones de dólares en reembolsos potenciales de una promoción, colocó una de las mayores apuestas jamás realizadas por una casa de apuestas estadounidense el martes en una casa de apuestas de Mississippi.

Jim «Mattress Mack» McIngvale, dueño de Gallery Furniture en Houston, apostó $3.5 millones de dólares en los Houston Astros para ganar la Serie Mundial en la casa de apuestas DraftKings en el casino Scarlet Pearl en Biloxi, Mississippi. Con probabilidades de +220, la apuesta pagaría $7.7 millones netos si los Astros ganan la Serie Mundial.

McIngvale transfirió los $3.5 millones al Scarlet Pearl el lunes y voló de Houston a Biloxi. Dijo el martes que el boleto de apuestas estaba en su bolsillo y bromeó diciendo que probablemente lo guardaría en su billetera, «que está asegurado por un montón de gomas».

McIngvale también realizó recientemente una apuesta de $200,000 en los Astros para la Serie Mundial +250 en South Point en Las Vegas y tiene apuestas adicionales por cantidades no reveladas con las casas de apuestas de Nevada Caesars, MGM, Treasure Island y Circa Sports. Él también está buscando más.

La apuesta de $3.5 millones de McIngvale en Scarlet Pearl es casi igual a la cantidad apostada en el béisbol en las casas de apuestas deportivas de Mississippi en los meses de junio, julio y agosto combinados.

«Creo que es la [apuesta] más grande que haya sucedido en Mississippi», dijo el director de ingresos y cofundador de DraftKings, Matt Kalish.

No solo se cree que es la apuesta más grande jamás realizada en Mississippi, sino que también es fácilmente una de las apuestas más grandes jamás reportadas en los Estados Unidos –y McIngvale podría no haber terminado.

McIngvale ha estado en comunicación con varias casas de apuestas deportivas en Nueva Jersey, preguntando acerca de hacer grandes apuestas. A principios de septiembre, la casa de apuestas FanDuel, luego de conversar con McIngvale, solicitó la aprobación de la División de Control de Juegos de Nueva Jersey para aceptar una apuesta de más de $5 millones en los Astros.

«Estoy asombrado de la cantidad de DraftKings y Scarlet Peal, y no pestañearon», dijo McIngvale. «Es bastante raro en el negocio de las apuestas deportivas en los Estados Unidos que alguien tome tres millones y medio de dólares».

Durante gran parte de la temporada de béisbol, McIngvale ha estado ofreciendo reembolsar las compras relacionadas con el colchón de $3,000 o más si los Astros ganan la Serie Mundial. Realizó una promoción similar en 2017 y reembolsó más de $10 millones en compras, cuando Houston venció a los Los Angeles Dodgers para ganar la primera Serie Mundial de la franquicia. Ese año, McIngvale colocó más de $1 millón en apuestas a los Astros con las casas de apuestas de Las Vegas, lo que lo ayudó a limitar su exposición a la promoción. Este año, con más estados ofreciendo apuestas deportivas, ha ampliado las opciones, incluidas Mississippi y Nueva Jersey.

«Es un juego completamente diferente en 2019», dijo McIngvale a ESPN la semana pasada, ya que estaba buscando el mejor precio y los límites más altos.

Si bien algunas apuestas de $1 millón aparecen regularmente en el Super Bowl, las apuestas multimillonarias –especialmente en la Serie Mundial– son extremadamente raras:

— En 2002, el corredor de apuestas de Las Vegas Robert Walker dijo que hizo una apuesta de línea de dinero de $4.8 millones de dólares en los St. Louis Rams para vencer a los New England Patriots directamente en el Super Bowl XXXVI. Los Patriots ganaron a los Rams 20-17.

— En 2018, un apostador no identificado en una casa de apuestas de MGM en Las Vegas realizó una apuesta de línea de dinero de $3 millones en los Philadelphia Eagles para vencer a los Patriots en el Super Bowl LII. Las Águilas lograron la sorpresa, y el apostador ganó $4.5 millones netos.

— En 1995, el veterano corredor de apuestas de Las Vegas Jimmy Vaccaro dice que recibió una apuesta de $2.4 millones en la línea de dinero del destacado inversionista Carl Icahn en los muy favorecidos San Francisco 49ers (1-8) para vencer a los Chargers en el Super Bowl XXIX. Icahn ganó $300,000 netos cuando los 49ers vencieron a los Chargers.

Los Astros bajaron a +210 en las probabilidades de DraftKings para ganar la Serie Mundial después de tomar la apuesta de McIngvale. Los Dodgers son el segundo favorito en +260.

Antes de la apuesta de McIngvale, se había apostado más dinero a los New York Yankees para ganar la Serie Mundial en DraftKings que lo que se había apostado a cualquier otro equipo. Los Yankees están +425.

«Esto nos cambia un poco la imagen», dijo Kalish el martes. «Esto hará que los Astros sean la mayor responsabilidad».

McIngvale, de 68 años, es una figura querida en Houston. Abrió su tienda de muebles a los necesitados durante las inundaciones causadas por el huracán Harvey y dice que siempre apoya a los Astros, independientemente de su posición.

Se negó a caracterizar la gran responsabilidad que tiene en la promoción de este año.

La responsabilidad de Gallery Furniture de la promoción superó los $15 millones esta semana y todavía estaba creciendo, dijo McIngvale.

«Conozco promociones extravagantes como esta, cuando la gente recupera su dinero, es la mejor publicidad que podría esperar», dijo McIngvale.

Los Astros recibirán al ganador del juego de comodines Tampa Bay Rays contra Oakland Athletics en la Serie Divisional de la Liga Americana.

En las semanas previas a la postemporada del béisbol, McIngvale contrató a dos apostadores de Las Vegas para ayudarlo a encontrar el mejor precio. Anthony Curtis, uno de los jugadores, dijo que McIngvale estaba buscando colocar más de $10 millones en los Astros.

Después de la apuesta del martes, Mattress Mack está casi a mitad de camino.
