Astros Win World Series, Mattress Mack Makes $75 Mill, Georgia, Clemson, LSU Big Winners, Fields/Brady Make History


The Houston Astros are World Series champions after beating the Philadelphia Phillies in six games. Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale, a furniture store owner who is known for making outrageously large bets, will cash in $75 million (on a $10 million bet on the Astros winning). Mack promised customers he’ll refund (and in some cases double) their money back from purchases if the Astros win, so he hedged the bet a bit. Either way, it’s the largest sports betting win in history.


It was an exciting weekend in college football. #3 Georgia beat top-ranked Tennessee (whose applications for admission had skyrocketed after they beat Alabama on October 15th), while #4 Clemson fell to Notre Dame, and #10 LSU pulled out an overtime win over #6 Alabama.

In the NFL, a few notable games:

Chicago quarterback Justin Fields made history by recording the most rushing touchdowns of any quarterback in a regular season game. Unfortunately for the Bears, they narrowly lost to Miami 32-35.

Tom Brady also made history….again! He is the only player in the NFL to reach 100,000 career passing yards. He also recorded his 55th career game-winning drive by leading the Buccaneers to a 16-13 win with a touchdown in the last 35 seconds of the game.
