Drake has wagered nearly $1 million in a series of “psychotic” bets for the Super Bowl. He posted his bets online on Instagram! The game between Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles will take place at the State Farm Stadium in Arizona.
“My psychotic bets for Sunday are in @stake,” he wrote in the caption on Instagram. “Pls do not analyze the logic behind these bets. There is none.”
The Instagram post shows the bets he has placed, including $700,000 on the Kansas City Chiefs winning the game, $50,000 on Patrick Mahomes being the Chiefs’ first touchdown scorer and $50,000 on JuJu Smith-Schuster being the Chiefs’ first touchdown scorer. He has also bet $50,000 on Kansas City Chiefs winning both halves, $30,000 on Chiefs winning each quarter, $25,000 on Travis Kelce winning MVP and $60,000 on a tight end winning MVP.
Previously, he had won $2.1 million after the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship game in January. He has also lost a lot of bets, which has sparked the theory of a ‘Drake Curse’.
He recently lost $1million betting on Argentina winning the World Cup in regulation time, and despite them winning over France, he lost the bet because the game had to go to extra time.
Teams have also lost after Drake wore one of their shirts! FC Barcelona lost to Real Madrid after Drake betted on them. As part of their sponsorship with Spotify, Barcelona was seen wearing a special kit dedicated to the rapper also featuring his OVO owl.
Rihanna, who once dated Drake, is going to perform at the Super Bowl half-time show this year. This will mark her first live appearance in five years. Reportedly, she has already modified the setlist for her 13 minute show 39 times.
