Drake is partnered with Stake, an online sportsbook and gambling company. All of his big-money bets, including his latest string of Super Bowl wagers, are placed with Stake, and he has even hosted gambling streams on Twitch using their platform.
In total, the Canadian-born rapper bet $965,000. He warned in the caption that these were placed purely on gut instinct with no real evidence behind them.
“My psychotic bets for Sunday are in @stake,” Drake said in the caption. “pls do not analyze the logic behind these bets there is none.”
He assigned $700k to his game pick, the Chiefs’ moneyline, for +111 odds. That means that if Kansas City wins, he will take home $111 for every $100 that went into the bet, resulting in a $1.48 million payout.
He also bet $50k on Patrick Mahomes and wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster to score the first touchdown for the Chiefs. This is known as a “hedge” since both outcomes cannot come true, but just one of them hitting would ensure $400-650k in profit.
Drake also predicted the Chiefs' dominance to reign supreme throughout the game and bet $50k on them to win each half and another $50k on them to win every quarter. Notably, they were tied with the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl they won during the 2020 season, and they lost outright to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a year later.
The OVO co-founder topped off his bet slip with a $60k wager on a tight end to win Super Bowl MVP and $25k on that tight end to be Kansas City’s Travis Kelce. Kelce has 15 touchdowns in 19 games this season and three in two postseason games and recently moved into second in the NFL’s all-time postseason career receiving yards and receiving touchdowns ladder.
