Chiefs fans, look away.
Rapper Drake is all in on Kansas City ahead of Super Bowl 57, placing nearly a million dollars worth of bets on the Chiefs to prevail over the Eagles and win their second championship in four years.
Drake bet $700,000 on the Chiefs to win outright, which would pay out nearly $1.5 million and net him $777,000. He also placed two Chiefs first touchdown bets for $50,000 — one on Patrick Mahomes and another on JuJu Smith-Schuster.
On top of that, Drake placed a $50,000 bet on the Chiefs winning both halves and a $30,000 bet on Kansas City winning each quarter. Why stop there? He bet $60,000 on a tight end to win Super Bowl MVP and another $25,000 on Travis Kelce to earn MVP honors.
The most Drake can win would be $4.5 million. However, a simple Chiefs victory would mean he comes away a winner since he would win $777,000 and also receive the $700,000 he bet.
Why roll with the Chiefs? Drake doesn’t sound completely sure.
“Do not analyze the logic behind these bets there is none,” he said on Instagram.
In Drake’s defense, he bet $1 million on the Chiefs to win the AFC championship game over the Bengals and came away with a huge payout. His picks haven’t always been successful in the past, but Drake is banking on the Chiefs bringing him some newfound luck.
Drake’s history of betting has produced mixed results.
He did win big when the Chiefs advanced to the Super Bowl, though his 2022 World Cup betting wasn’t as successful. Drake placed a $1 million bet on Argentina to defeat France in the World Cup Final, but because the game went to penalty kicks, he didn’t come away with anything.
From what he’s posted publicly, Drake has at least had some success in the betting market. He bet on the Rams to beat the Bengals in Super Bowl 56 and also won big after betting on the Warriors to win the NBA’s Western Conference last year.
Around the same time, Drake lost $250,000 betting on Formula 1’s Charles Leclerc to win the Spanish Grand Prix and missed a $314,000 parlay on the Nets, Mavericks, and his hometown Blue Jays.
