AUDIO – Would Tilman Fertitta take a $5 million bet on the Astros to win the World Series!?

The Houston Astros are big favorites to win it all this year and the bets are rolling in.

Houston Rockets and Golden Nugget owner Tilman Fertitta joined us Thursday on Cofield & Co. with some great advice on being successful in the business and never letting up.

Fertitta told us he does not like getting beat, even if it’s just for a couple thousand.

Steve Cofield asked Fertitta if he would accept the $5 million Astros bet from Houston business owner, Mattress Mack. Fertitta says he does not want to root against the Astros, but that we shouldn’t underestimate Mack.

Fertitta also inspired us to keep punching and said one can become their most successful in life at any age.
