Everything is bigger in Texas, including the gambling losses. 

The Dallas Cowboys' 19-12 loss to the 49ers in NFC Divisional Round on Sunday at Levi's Stadium proved to be costly for the team and one high-stakes gambler. 

Local Texas mattress salesman, Jim McIngvale, also known as "Mattress Mack," is known for his multi-million dollar bets, including a record-setting payout of $10 million after the Houston Astros won the 2022 MLB World Series. 

Before the 49ers and Cowboys playoff matchup, McIngvale placed an eye-popping $2 million bet on Dallas to beat San Francisco on Sunday. 

When his gamble ultimately failed, Mattress Mack had a message for Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott. 

"Hey Dak, Mattress Mack here," McIngvale said. "I just lost $2 million, but I've got some advice for you. Get rid of that Sleep Number mattress and get a Tempur-Pedic. You'll get much better results!"

Former Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens chimed in on Twitter. 

Prescott completed 23 of his 37 pass attempts for 206 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss, but it was the two backbreaking interceptions he threw that played a big role in the Cowboys' loss.

According to McIngvale, Prescott, a spokesperson for Sleep Number mattresses, needs to invest in a new brand of bed. 

The Cowboys' quarterback now will have an opportunity to get a head start on his offseason mattress shopping.
