The “Drake Curse” is a phenomenon that has been around for a few years. It first gained international attention when Drake started attending sporting events, and the teams he was rooting for lost.
This has been a repeating pattern, with people tagging it the Drake curse. This time, however, it was purely a gambling-related event.
Drake was betting on a boxing match, where he was set to make a considerable profit. According to reports, had Paul won the game,
Drake would have earned an incredible amount of over $1 million in BTC. Unfortunately, despite the rapper’s best efforts, Paul could not knock out Fury, and Drake lost his total bet.
Musician Loses Big Bet
The musician staked a $400K bet on the leading cryptocurrency (BTC that his pal Jake Paul (an American internet influencer turned boxer) will defeat Tommy Fury (the younger brother of the global heavyweight champion Tyson Fury). He once again used the gambling platform Stake.
After Fury hit the canvass in the eighth round, Paul was almost victorious. Nonetheless, Fury managed to get up and win by a divided judge’s ruling.
Jokingly, Paul accused Drake of being accountable for his loss in a post-match press conference saying, “Drake, my friend, why did you do this to me?” His comment referred to the fact that Drake bet on the fight with odds of 3.60, which could have yielded him a profit of over $1,000,000 in BTC.
He then jokingly suggested that the Canadian had made a significant amount of money wagering on his previous matches before Fury and encouraged him to try his luck again if a rematch were to take place:
“It’s my fault. He’s already gained a lot of cash betting on me before. He’s probably somewhere around even now. My apologies, Drake; I will make sure to get the victory in the rematch.”
The rapper is very passionate about wagering on athletic events. Unfortunately, this has led to many losses for many teams he had supported, leading to the emergence of the expression “the Drake curse.”
Anthony Joshua, the ex-heavyweight boxing champion, is a noteworthy inclusion in this trend. Drake was optimistic that Joshua would prevail against Andy Ruiz in their first encounter, but the Mexican underdog struck victorious with a knockout.
The rapper had a significant financial setback from wagering on Formula 1 and soccer, including a $1 million worth of Bitcoin bet on Argentina to winning the FIFA World Cup final after 90 minutes of play. Unfortunately for him, Messi and his teammates only managed to win the championship after penalty kicks.
Drake’s Super Bowl Win
Despite his unfortunate wagers on sports, Drake appears to possess good prognostic capabilities regarding the Super Bowl. This year, the championship game resulted in him making a profit of over $1.1 million in Bitcoin after the Kansas City Chiefs emerged victorious and Patrick Mahomes got a touchdown.
He gained nearly $305K in Bitcoin last year when the Los Angeles Rams won Super Bowl LVI, with Odell Beckham Jr. making a remarkable touchdown.
